About the property

One bedroom luxury apartment close to the beach

Golden Villas consists with spacious and comfortable apartments of attractive, contemporary design. Ideally located near Aruba's most beautiful and popular beaches. We are conveniently close to the island's best markets, malls and nightlife. Our cozy facility and genuine hospitality provide the luxury and ambience you desire, at very moderate rates.

Why stay in a bare-bones hotel room when you can make yourself at home at half the price?

Your host, Ricard Vidal, lives on premises and is available at anytime to see to your needs. He and his family are a delightful element of the ambiance of Golden Villas, where you are always a treasured guest, not just a customer. Do not hesitate to ask his advice regarding dining, shopping, entertainment and activities, he relishes the opportunity to insure you have the most memorable vacation possible. It is no wonder that in the two years Golden Villas has been welcoming vacationers, he has established a very loyal clientele.

Our spacious, air-conditioned apartments easily accommodate a family or group of four. The master bedrooms are equipped with king-size bed, plenty of closet space with a built-in safe, and a 40" smart TV with complementary satellite programming. The living room/dining area is large, with a queen-sized sofa bed and 50" LED TV. All rooms are fully screened and have sleekly styled blinds and windows for privacy and comfort.

The apartment has a contemporary, European-style kitchen, with all cutlery, dishes and cooking utensils provided. The kitchen and modern, opulant bathrooms have hot water heaters.

Our delightful community area is centered around the pool and a whirlpool bath (non-heated). We have charming palapas for shade, and lounges. The entertainment area features a deluxe gas barbecue.

Exceeded our expectations! Upon arrival we were greeted by Ricard and shown our apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was explained clearly. The apartment was exceptionally clean, and a lot of thought in design. Everything on the property well maintained. Cleaning person every two days including clean sheets and towels. We have done many rentals and this level of cleanliness was a first for us. Quiet at night and enjoyed the little back deck in the evening with the lovely trade winds. Highly recommend renting a small car as driving is easy and you have access to the entire island with much to see and do! Loved it so much we are coming back.

Wonderful, quiet, relaxing, immaculately clean, friendly, a GEM

  • 5 of 5

I found this when a trading into a timeshare was not available. So happy that we did! I don’t believe you could find any better apartment for the price, Great Bargin, It is a small complex of 8 - 1 bedroom apartments. We had a very comfy king bed with luxurious sheets. A/C worked well, hot water plentiful with a rain shower head plus a hand held. Towels were changed every other day. They were thick and large. Beach chairs and cooler available in every unit. The pool was wonderful. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, all the essentials. An outdoor gas grill is available in the common courtyard area, it is very clean, which we used several times. Our only complaint, the TV stations are mostly in Spanish with NO USA major network, ie, NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, there was an English CNN but don’t believe it was broadcast from USA. There are 100’s of stations you can scan through but many are not available to you. It would be nice to have the owners make a list of the stations available on the TV’s in their apartments. Indicate whether Spanish or English. We watched many English speaking TV shows with Spanish commercials. That was interesting. The owner Ricard is very personable and strives to please. He mentioned before we left that he was looking into his provider, Diirect TV-from South America to the possibility of adding more US major network stations. I hope this will include the networks I mentioned above. We were there during NFL Playoffs and hubby was very upset the games were not available to us in our vacation apartment. He doesn’t like to watch at sports bars. Thank you, Santa for your daily hard work keeping the property and units sparkling! You are certainly an asset to Golden Villas!

This was our third trip to beautiful Aruba. Normally we would aim for a beachfront rental and no car rental. We stepped off the beaten path and found a “jewel”! These condo’s are beautiful, clean and centrally located. Very quiet at night. The owner, Ricard, is very friendly and helpful with anything Aruba. He encouraged us to rent a car, took us to the car rental place, provided a local map and a list of amazing restaurants. We saw parts of Aruba we didn’t even know existed. This was our best trip to date. Would definitely recommend these condos and plan to return ASAP.

Clean modern friendly stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay for a week at Golden Villas. The property was clean modern one bedroom apartment. The grounds were always clean and quiet location. The only "complaint we had was with the Wifi- it would disconnect us quite a bit. Other than that the location was perfect. We definitely recommend this location and will be returning when we come back to Aruba!
