Fodor's Expert Review Hidden Eden Aruba
Bushiri 12, Oranjestad, n/a Aruba, Aruba
It’s not common knowledge, but there are some very cool little B&Bs on this island, and this is one of the best. This spot is virtually as the name suggests: a “Hidden Eden” of tropical delights since the owners also run Fantastic Gardens next door—a six-acre nursery that supplies most of Aruba’s foliage for landscaping and home gardens. Four stand-alone rooms in the back of their home in Bubali give guests a very affordable stay, which includes breakfast at a massive community picnic table that brings everyone together for socializing. Barbecue, bike, and snorkel-gear rental is available, and they also offer free Wi-Fi.
