Best Affordable Beach Resorts
Arubiana Inn, Aruba
The cheerful Dutch innkeeper Marjan Snoeij personally welcomes you to this low-slung property, where the 18 cozy rooms are spotless, with tiled floors, big, soft beds, and mini fridges filled with complimentary drinks. The hotel is a short walk to Eagle Beach, perfect for easy afternoons in the sun. At night, guests mingle around the hammock-and-palm-tree-lined swimming pool in the courtyard.
Cost: From $94
Don’t Miss: Ask Snoeij for directions to Marina Pirata, a seafood restaurant in Spaans Lagune, where you can sit on a dock while mullet swim in circles below.
