Solar Villa is known to offer tranquility and relaxation to all of its' guests. Therefore to maintain this reputation, we avoid having loud music throughout the property, and have restricted pool area usage (9am-9pm) to ensure the rest of all of our guests.

Our guests receive keys to the main gate and their room upon arrival, to ensure easy access at all times. There are no restrictions on to what time guests arrive at Solar Villa after being out, but expect that they are discreet and avoid making loud noises that can disturb other guests, especially during the evening hours.

Smoking in the rooms is not allowed, a penalty of $200 will be charged in case this rule is broken. We do have a designated smoking area available for our guests.

Solar Villa is eco-friendly producing part of it's energy consumption by Solar Panels. Low energy consumption appliances, water efficient products and a water recycling system are in place. Our gardens featuring flowers, aloe, palm trees, sour sap, grape and passion fruit plants are watered by this recycled water.
Do you also care about the environment? Solar Villa is the place to be, if you are looking for a private, relaxing ambiance, where you will enjoy your vacation in Aruba without having to worry about your carbon footprint.

We ask all our guests to help us maintain our commitment to the environment by turning off all ac units, tv electronics and lights when leaving the property. Cleaning service is included in our price, towels are exchanged every other day and linens are changed after 3 nights.

Solar was s great place for our stay 3 days before we could checkin for our Oceanfront week. The property was clean and well maintained. The pool was refreshing and plenty of chairs for everyone. The AC was very cool and everything was in working order. The hosts were always available to answer any questions or assist with anything we needed. A definite GEM in Aruba

A hidden treasure!! We spent an amazing 2 weeks at Solar Villa & loved every minute. Quant accommodations & so relaxing from the free morning coffee, quiet patio sitting area, to lounging after cooling off in the pool on a hot day in Aruba! The rooms were cleaned everyday with fresh towels, linens & beach towels changed regularly. Family owned & service was beyond what we expected. Yohanna provided incredible service & warm greeting everyday to make sure we were happy with our stay. She went above any host; even days where she gave us cool drinks on a hot day or an afternoon snack if relaxing by the pool. Freddie & the kids were a joy to be around & all hard workers to maintain a safe & comfortable environment for us to enjoy while on holidays. I can not recommend Solar Villa enough; it was a great stay & affordable. You won't be disappointed when you stay at Solar Villa!

Just got back from my stay in Aruba at Solar Village. Love this place. For a great budget stay in Aruba you couldnt ask for anything more. Solar village had a wonderful pool my son enjoyed so much. I loved that it was clean and even seen the pool guy come and service it which was a plus. The location of Solar Village is perfect literally 5-10 minutes from major attractions eagle/palm beaches best in Aruba to the amazing restaurants and casinos. The wifi was great i was able to email and use apps on my phone. The power in the place was great and the room was clean. The hosts mom is present everyday for your needs with daily towels and utensils cleaned. Loved that you pulled into secure parking. Like i said you cant go wrong with this place for the value you get for the stay in Aruba to be near everything. We enjoyed our stay over christmas which they decorated the whole village that it made it feel like we were home for the holiday. I couldnt be happier and look forward to returning to Solar Village in the near future. We stood in the room Prikita. Thanks Yolana for our wonderful stay and for providing us everything you promised to help with the baby. Wonderful place!!!

WifI wasn't working, toilet paper was not replenished (we were told we had to buy our own which we didn't know before booking the room), no liquid soap in the washroom either, no shampoo or conditioner so bring your own if you are going to stay here. Furthermore, the fan above the sofa bed in the one bedroom apartment is very noisy. I don't know how my friend slept there. It was shaking as it was turning. Also, the AC in the room was spitting out ice or cold water onto the bed which scared my friend while sleeping at night. Host (Yohana's mom) didn't speak English (spoke Spanish). Yohana and her husband (main hosts) were not present in the island and we were told to speak to her mom. Yohana told us she spoke basic English but she didn't understand English at all and was unable to communicate with us. We had to ask her to call Yohana so that we can resolve any issues. It would been better if Yohana had told us that she would not be present during our stay then we may have looked into booking another place. We booked this one bedroom apartment and queen room for one week. Door lock on the queen room wasn't working but they fixed it the next day. Wi-Fi worked fine during the first two days but barely worked after that. It seemed as if they kept turning off the Wi-Fi to keep the Wi-Fi usage down. In order to do laundry it was a $5 US . Yard area under the trees wasn't clean upon arrival but the host cleaned after we arrived. There were a lot of dogs out barking at night (around 8pm) so we didn't feel safe to go for walk at night in the neighbourhood and couldn't enjoy the local feeling of living in that neighbourhood. Instead we drove to the major resort areas and spent time there. Btw, we rented a car for our stay which helped a lot; otherwise, it would be hard to roam around the island if you stay at solar villa. It would be great if they can provide a microwave in the one bedroom apartment with the kitchenette. We expected a microwave and were unable to heat pizza or other food due to no microwave or oven.

Response from Solar:
Dear Mandy, We are very sorry that you had such a terrible first time Airbnb experience. We had lots of communication prior to your reservation and arrival through the app, which I responded on a timely manner. I am not really sure what was left unclear to you and therefore caused misconception as I responded to all your questions prior to your arrival. On the description its says that toiletries are provided upon arrival, and nowhere is specified that there will be replenished, we do this as a courtesy to our guests, as we know that after a long flight, first guests will come to the apartment and might need to use the restroom. For this reason we included two rolls of toilet paper and the next morning you asked for more toilet paper, which we provided to you. When you asked again we then told you that it was not included and would not be replenished anymore. Even though cleaning service was not advertised or included on this Aribnb rate, we did clean up, change your linen and towels once during your stay, thinking you would appreciate this extra free service, but it is never mentioned on your review. After making the reservation you informed me about a plan change and that a 5th person would be added and wanted extra beds, which I informed you that was not possible due to the size of the room. I offered you the queen room for your friend to stay and lowered the price for your dates as this was only for one person and to make it attractive to you, since I understood that it was an unexpected expense. We were informed about the Ac and the door lock once and this was checked and fixed right away. About the fan nothing was reported, as this fan is barely used since there is an Ac unit in place. We have removed the fan form the apartment as it is not really needed and to avoid future nuisance to other guests. On the day of your arrival you were informed that we would not be there and that you were free to contact us during your stay, which you did at first. Later I sent you a message after the second day which you never responded to, indicating about the toilet paper, towels and laundry fee. Unfortunately we were not on the island during your stay but were always reachable via email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or Airbnb messages. Our temporary phone abroad was also listed on our profile in case you needed to contact us directly, as other guests through this same platform. My mother was always there and you did contact her several times on the first and second day. You must understand that you did not book a five stars hotel, were there is a team constantly available to attend to all your needs 24/7, instead you booked a budget guesthouse run by a friendly and attentive family. I don't think that our presence during your stay would have had a positive impact on your experience anyways. We have a fast unlimited data Wi-fi connection, which is not charged by data usage. Unfortunately the provider was having some issues due to some power outrages in other parts of the island which affected the speed of the connection. We did reset the router several times to try to improve connectivity as we received feedback from you and our other guests on property that day. Saying this I apologize, but there was nothing we could do as it was not in our hands, but by all means we did not turn the Wi-Fi off to restrict or minimize data usage. As an extra service we provide Laundry service of a full load wash to our guests for a $5 fee, this includes washing, soap, softener, drying and folding, delivered to your room. Our guests find this very convenient as prices on the island range between $9-$10 for this same service, and are offsite, implicating drop off and pick up, so extra charges on gas. There are several trees onsite which provide both shade and beauty to our courtyard, as Aruba is very windy it is common to find leaves on the floor, specially the parking lot area. We do clean these on a daily basis, so we are sorry it was not done before you arrival but afterwards. There is a law on Aruba that prohibits dogs wondering freely around, so probably these were dogs that were being walked around. On our profile we recommend our guests to rent a car as we are not located on the main road were the bus transits, I mentioned this on our conversations and we are glad that you took our advice and were able to visit several parts of Aruba. We will consider your recommendation of placing a microwave in the room for guests use. On our profile it is not mentioned on the amenities that there is a microwave in the room, it unfortunate that you assumed that. Is it clear to us that this is your first time using Airbnb, which offers accommodations at friendlier and more budget convenient prices than large hotels. In order to be able to offer these prices we can not offer many of the services that we could provide at a higher rate. Aruba has several accommodation options for all the guests that visit at different nightly rates and offering different services to accommodate each guests needs as you most likely noticed when visiting the high-rise hotels. We hope the next time you do a reservation to any property through Airbnb you make sure to review the services provided by the accommodation to ensure a pleasant stay and experience that meet your needs and expectations. Kind Regards, Yohana & Freddy

The best of all was the swimming pool. It was very nice and refreshing after bike riding around the island all the whole day. The people who work there were helpful. The neighborhood is kind of run down but at least is safe. There is a small supermarket very close down the road with a nice variety of products and good deals. The main road to the beach it is located about 0.7 miles from there. We rent some bikes and traveled around between the high rise hotels and Pos Chiquito, be aware that there are not many bikes lanes in Aruba, but we survived.
