Paradera Park Apartments Celebrate Silver Anniversary

Privately owned and managed by partners Deborah de Weerd and Henk Steenbergen, Paradera Park Apartments is an exclusive tropical escape. As its name indicates, it is centrally located in Paradera, in the heart of the island.

The full-service apartment resort was set up twenty-five years ago, by a pair of visionary European entrepreneurs who noted the absence of small, intimate vacation rentals. Most visitors at the time, stayed in traditional hotels, but the de Weerd predicted that the vacation rental segment of the market will eventually grow and built a charming ten-studio complex surrounded by nature, cactus, boulders and divi trees, off the beaten path, which they successfully ran for over a decade.

Then thirteen years ago, Deborah and Henk, here on vacation from their successful careers in the Netherlands, decided to grant Deborah’s parents their wish to retire, stepped into their shoes and moved to Aruba to assume the ownership role of Paradera Park Apartments, full time. They translated the boundless love they had for the property and the island into a successful business, now in its twenty-fifth year, as a full-service tropical oasis.

Overtime Paradera Park Apartments evolved into an intimate seventeen-room boutique style resort, including deluxe studios, one & two-bedroom suites, offering a front office & giftshop, with a friendly tour desk and delivering daily housekeeping services. The garden, now famous for incredible blooms became a renowned escape for both local guests and visitors alike.

Both Deborah & Henk are very guest-focused and advocate personal service as key to high guest satisfaction scores which has led to multiple awards by review sites such as TripAdvisor & Zoover.            At Paradera Park Apartments they keep the traveler in mind, making sure he/she experiences Aruba on a very deep level, and that the island leaves a magical impression on culturally diverse guests, hailing from every corner of the world, Europe, the US, Canada, Latin America, travelling for both business and for leisure. 

As a privately owned and managed property Deborah & Henk are proud to welcome back many return visitors each year and continue to share their island knowledge to help them explore and enjoy the uniqueness of Aruba.

Paradera Park Apartments feature very comfortable beds, superior linen, and updated modern bathrooms with Aruba Aloe guest amenities, hi speed Wi-Fi, Illy espresso machines, all utensils and appliances, making the option to cook readily available. The inviting pool deck, the refreshing palm-fringed fresh water pool and the shaded swaying hammocks add to the complete and total promise of relaxation.
