“Great Location, Great Hospitality and Great Memories Made!”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Modern World made our time away just a bit more special. The owner and hostess, Erna, is absolutely amazing. She gave suggestions on what to see and where to eat - which were all fabulous suggestions to us. We're not a group that enjoys the tourist side of things, so she directed us more to local establishments. Besides that, Erna, makes you feel right at home. One morning she made Danish Pancakes for us and they were beyond good!! I still want that recipe. =) The rooms are all very different and all very beautiful, and well cleaned and cared for. We found it relaxing to return in the evening, to hang out by the pool and enjoy the patio area. It was always a nice way to end the day.

The location we perfect. A walking distance to the Marriott and to the beach. You may also walk to town from this location, but we decided to get a car and see the island a bit more outside of the walking area. I would highly recommend doing so, because there are some gorgeous natural sites to be see and many different beaches to take in. I would recommend asking your booking agent or Erna for the exact address before arriving though. We had a bit of an issue with our cab driver not finding MW. After a stop at the Marriott and with a little help from the staff there, we were able to find our way to Modern World. It was a small bump in our trip, but just something to keep in mind before arriving.

Our group of Ladies would all stay here again in a heart beat! Thank you so much to Erna for being a gracious hostess and making our first trip to Aruba a memorable one. You have some new friends in Wisconsin! Hope to see you again soon - Gayle, Diana, Andrea and Amber

We stayed here over the Christmas holiday with our two adult children. I can't say enough about this beautiful hotel and our even more beautiful host, Erna! Our accommodations were excellent from the spacious suite to the beautiful pool and Erna's constant attention to detail. We were able to enjoy all the island has to offer and come back to enjoy her lovely terrace garden. Thank you, Erna for giving us such great memories!

“An Exceptional Experience with the Comforts of Home”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here with friends earlier this month and came away with experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. This is the way to experience Aruba with intimacy rather than big box living. Located across the street from the Hi Rise Hotels, it transports you to a world away while giving you the peace and tranquility a beach vacation should. The rooms in the boutique hotel are tastefully appointed and come with all the comforts of home. Each one is differently decorated. A full kitchen inside this unit, an outdoor kitchen on the deck, a beautiful bathroom and comfortable bedroom along with seating inside and out. The outdoor pool area provides a communal table for meeting new friends (others staying at the hotel), or small intimate tables for dining alone, and lounging gin the sun or shade. To top it all off, the owner is a marvel of hospitality and knowledge. She gave us wonderful local dining options so we could avoid the expensive American dining places and really experience the local Aruban culture. Her knowledge was invaluable to making our experience a memorable one. Prices are more than reasonable for your stay compared to other places on the Island. She was generous and warm and friendly. She puts her hotel over the top.

We did a mother/daughter trip and stayed at Modern World in the double rooms and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The rooms were beautifully decorated and Erna was so kind and went over the top to make us feel welcome. We met other couples there from other countries and became friends during our stay while hanging out on Erna's lovely terrace and pool area. She also made us her famous Dutch pancakes and many other treats that weren't expected. Personal touch you just wouldn't get at a high rise hotel. We loved the location because it was a short walk to the beach, to the bus stop, and could get anywhere we wanted to go without a car. My daughter and I are looking forward to our next trip to Aruba and we would definitely come back to see Erna and stay at Modern World again!

“all the amenities without the resort price”

We rented the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom guest house with our teenage girls. The set up was perfect. Each bedroom is en suite-hassle free morning showers. The kitchen has coffee pot, microwave, dishwasher. The unit was clean and comfortable. Outside, the beautiful pool area has plenty of shade, a fridge, grill and large covered dining area.
Erna is such a gracious hostess. She offered to refill our morning coffee, had pastries available and recommended sights to see. The token canine, Doe-Doe, was adorable. He made our stay feel so homey.
We highly recommend Modern World Aruba. Although not directly on the beach, it is a short walk through the Marriot Hotel parking lot to the Caribbean. Easier to walk than to pay the immense resort fees and share a hotel room and bathroom with high school daughters!
