Rates and Specials

There is no best time to visit Aruba as the weather is consistently warm year-round with a fairly constant temperature of 82°F (28°C). The best time to visit all depends on the type of vacation you are looking for.

 

People come to Aruba to escape cold winters, but people also come to Aruba to escape the extreme summer heat of where they are from. Our fairly consistent temperatures is why we say to join us for ‘one cool summer’!

 

Of course, Aruba tends to be more crowded during high season so hotel prices are higher than in low season and reservations should be made well in advance. If you are looking for a less crowded period it is recommended to visit Aruba during low season.

Important information to our guests:

Taxes, fees, and Service charges: Estimate 19% but may vary.
Aruba has a number of taxes and fees that properties are required to collect. These are categorized into various types and change from time to time. They usually consist of a combination of percentage of cost, type of room (the more bedrooms, the higher the fee), per reservation fees, per night, energy tax/surcharge, etc. These are fees collected for the government, not us and we have no control. Most properties on Aruba charge about 25% – 27% plus the one time fees. We try to keep a tighter control so we can minimize this instead of charging higher extra amounts to cover changes. Currently we collect 19% but this may vary.

 

Utility fees:
Estimate $165 per week. Utilities are extremely costly on Aruba and there are also adjustments based on usage and cost of energy that the utility companies impose on us. As you can imagine, everything is imported and even our water is based on Desalinated sea water. Although it is probably the purest water you will ever find, it is very costly.

Since our Vacation Rental Condos are quite large, the utilities can become extremely expensive if abused. In order for us to be able to offer affordable rates to our guests while being able to offer large comfortable accommodations, we collect a nominal weekly fee towards utilities based on the number of occupants. This covers normal usage based on a typical guest. If you run your air conditioners when you are not in the unit, or leave water running when not in the shower or using the sink, you are not only wasting resources and hurting the planet but would exceed normal usage. We budget your accommodation to the maximum that a typical guest would use. Anything above that would have to be charged additionally. Fortunately, in about 25 years of operation, Aruba Villa Rentals guests have been responsible folks and less than 5% of our guests have exceeded the budget.

 

Resort/other fees: While is has become customary for properties to charge a ‘resort fee’ or relate fees for things like use of wifi, facilities, etc, we do not do so. We try to manage our properties in such as way as to be able to offer our guests the best value and cover some of the major risks/costs through items that do vary, the utilities.

 

Rates are valid for up to 4 guests in a unit. Additional guests fee $35/guest per night to cover added utilities, linen, added cleaning, etc. This does not include taxes.
