10/10 Exceptional

A beautiful and relaxing place to stay for a while! This small and basic family run and owned property is right on the water located on the quiet side of Aruba. Serene by The Sea has wonderful views, warm waters to enjoy swimming or water-craft, and very friendly and helpful staff and owners. Two of the best restaurants on Aruba are a few minutes walk away. Recommended without hesitation!

There are many things to like about this property. While it is not luxurious, it is very nice. The room was very clean and the bedding was very comfortable. There is cable TV in the room. Parking is available in front and the surrounding area is quiet and safe. A nice breakfast is served every morning 8 - 10 with outdoor seating waterfront. There are kayaks and snorkel masks available to use free of charge. The owners were all super friendly and welcoming. The outdoor common areas could use a little TLC but overall a very pleasant stay.

We absolutely loved our stay at Serene by the Sea and can't wait to return. The large suite was good for our family of 4, including a kitchen that met our needs. We loved being right, right, right on the water at an affordable price; having tasty breakfasts made and hosted by friendly Elisé, who's part of the family that owns the inn, and chatting with other family members; and being able to borrow things we needed (snorkel masks, kayaks, life jackets, beach chairs, beach towels). I'd recommend a car to fully explore the island.

The staff was welcoming and friendly. The property was authentic and one got a real feel of the Aruba life, this was a plus on our part. The location was away from all the hustle and bustle of the tourist area again another plus on our part. You definitely need a car if you plan to stay here. The beautiful baby beach was a short car ride away. The room could use more upgrade, i.e. bedding, towels, mattress. Also the shower could have been cleaner. Given attention to these matters this place has the potential to be exceptional. Our best to this lovely family.

What an amazing find. We ideally wanted a quiet hotel that was seconds from the ocean. That’s exactly what we found here!

You Should Stay Here...
This cozy family-owned hotel was absolutely amazing. I would stay here again and again and again. It is off the beaten path, and right on the beach. It is quiet, relaxing and the food was good. It's a short drive to Baby Beach and you can walk to Zeerovers (eat there!).

A perfect place for a quiet, small place right on the sea. The owners treated us like family. Elise is a great chef and prepared made to order breakfast each day. He also prepared an amazing surf and turf dinner for a good price. If you want lots of tourists nearby, this is the wrong end of the island. However, if you want intimate and quiet with great beaches a few kilometers away, this is a great choice.

This place was amazing! The staff was super friendly and treated us like family. The view was incredible along with the tranquility. Best snorkeling on the island off their deck. Just perfect all around. It’s name is absolutely fitting.
