We have stayed at A1 apartments 4 times and are planning to stay again in February, 2018. Stan and Ingrid are very hospitable and accommodating. Location is convenient to downtown and bus station, quiet, and comfortable. Rooms have been updated with fresh paint and bedding. We totally enjoyed all our stays at A-1 Apartments! We have also stayed at a couple of the high rise hotels which are also nice but much prefer a more low key environment. Our first choice on Aruba is A-1! We too are "lifers".

Good for privacy, peace and quite and location as it's 5 mins away from town and the owners are pleasant people. However after checking out other options after the fact, I think the rooms should be a little cheaper.

We've stayed 7 nights at the A1 Apartments... everything was perfect! Mr Stanley and Ingrid were amazing! They picked us @ the airport for U$ 20,00, helped and gave us many tips and advices! The room was very comfortable and clean... with aircon in the room and hot water in the shower! The kitchen is simple but have everything you need... (we travelled on the budget so we used the kitchen many times)... the rooms are cleaned and the towels changed everyday! We rented a car and from there is so easy to go around the Island... theres a free parking on the street... our apartment was on the top floor... beautiful terrace... felt like home! Calm and quiet! Its is just a few minutes walking from the town centre and easy access to the main beaches either by walking or by bus (in case if u dont want to rent a car)! The owners have two amazing dogs... but they keep them locked so they don't bother the guests (we love dogs and we were asking them to let them free to stay with us)! I really recommend! It is an amazing place to stay in Aruba and amazing good value for Money.

I have been a regular guest of A-1 Apartments for the past two decades. I also own a timeshare unit on Palm Beach, so I have a dual perspective as a long-time Aruba tourist. I have found Stan Kemp’s A-1 Apartments to be a comfortable way to extend a scheduled time share vacation. It's also an ideal way to simply vacation in Aruba – not as a tourist, but as a local. Stan, A-1’s friendly host, is a multi-lingual native Aruban who is accommodating and ready to assist with any needs or information a guest may have. The apartments surround the owners’ home and you are made to feel completely welcomed. The apartments themselves are clean and cozy in the Dutch tradition – and ‘efficiency-style’ with all the basics necessary for a comfortable stay. Their newly added in-ground pool with waterfall will definitely add to the already relaxing atmosphere. Can’t wait to jump in on my next visit!

So, IMHO, if you are looking for high-end top-shelf, there’s always the Ritz-Carlton. But if you are looking for a quiet, low-key Arubian vibe, with well-appointed accommodations that are a walk away from the port and from downtown, A-1 Apartments absolutely fits the bill. I’m a lifer, as far as I’m concerned.

We stayed in Aruba for 5 nights. The last night we spent here since our original accommodation was fully booked. The room was dirty and the price significantly exaggerated. We payed 78 US$ for one night (for two), the room was dirty, the shower drain was clogged, the carpet looked like it has never seen a vacuum cleaner. The room was very stuffy since there is no window, if you want air you have to leave the doors open. We asked the owner for a receipt and he didn't seem to like it. He told us that he would bring the receipt to our room which never happened. They also have two non friendly dogs and they had to lock them in a separate room when we were checking-in or going to our room. The owners wife seemed nice. The neighborhood looks dodgy although we were told it is perfectly safe. There are definitely better options out there (like the one we were staying in our first four nights, it was very clean and nice, right in the city center and costed only 50 US$).
