Google review summary

"Good place in a convenient location, just 5 minutes walk to the ped zone where the tram stops. Clean room, I got lucky my room here was big, recently remodeled, big comfy bed, modern bathroom and a kitchenette. I was able to complete some work on my laptop, thanks to the superfast WIFI. Theo, the owner, was very accommodating: thanks again for the room upgrade. Great Peruvian restaurant adjacent and a very well sorted supermarket across the street. If you looking for an affordable, safe place to stay, I really recommend Theo's Hotel California!!"

Welcome to Aruba

Aruba has all the earmarks of a Caribbean paradise: startlingly blue waters, white-sand beaches, and gentle breezes. There really isn’t a bad time to stay in an Aruba vacation rental. With some of the lowest rainfall of any of the Caribbean islands, and reliably warm and sunny weather, it’s a balmy paradise year round.
