Charming European ambiencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort = PERFECTION!from A TripAdvisor Member
Upon our arrival at the Amsterdam Manor, we were in awe of how it was set up. It was like a little Dutch Wonderland. Everything there, from the time we arrived to the time we left, was perfect. The food at Mango's was terrific and the bartender (Filo) was hilarious. 5-6 and 9-10 Happy Hours with 2 for 1 drinks saved us some money! :) We didn't do the all-inclusive, but we did have a few breakfasts and a few dinners there. The room was great. We got a one-bedroom suite that was like an apartment. We were on the far end of the hotel, and we had our own HUGE patio. 2 chaise lounges, one table with a hut umbrella over it and one table without...and 4 chairs for each table. The room was immaculate, fully equipped with pots and pans and anything you need to use the kitchen.
The beach there (Eagle Beach) was so beautiful and quiet and perfect. It was literally like 10 steps from our patio. I was worried when I was told there was a road in between our hotel and the beach, but it was a small road and it was not even a big deal or small deal at all. The Amsterdam Manor provided rafts to float in the water with while at the beach, which was nice and relaxing as well.
We were there for 2 days before half the staff was calling us by our first names. Anna, Cristy, Julio, Filo and the girls at Mango’s were terrific to us. We will be going back there next year…either for our honeymoon or just for a vacation.
Best place to stay!from jillmo
Our room was a surprise. We stayed in a efficiency..it had a a kitchen with everything you would need. The bathroom was large and all the furnishings were great! We had a lovely patio overlooking the ocean where we had breakfast each morning...nothing could be better than that!
The staff could not have been more wonderful. The Amsterdam Manor is the place to go if you want a European experience in Aruba. No long lines..no elevators..just lovely surroundings and helpful staff!
When we return to Aruba this is where we will go...I highly recommend it!!!

Probably the best place to stay in Arubafrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good hamburgers, though. We had a very large two bedroom with a huge balcony overlooking the beach - terrific. Much space. A fully equipped kitchen and, even though we never cooked a real meal, it was great for snacks and breakfast. If you prefer "large resort hotels" this isn't the place for you. We do not and were very pleased. As one reviewer said, at the Hyatt et al you could just as easily be in Key West. And, the crowds and screaming kids at such spots is the last thing we wanted (and we have two children). Every person we met staying at those locales told us the same beach chair story: up at 7 a.m. or so, place a towel and/or fall asleep on the chair. Ridiculous. Free internet access at the hotel is also great. For those interested, medical care on Aruba is way beyond most other islands. I had the pleasure of visting the Hospital's ER, I broke my foot. Quick and competent care. In and out in 90 minutes, on a Sunday. Total bill: about $70. Also, Aruba is a very developed island and is not the "getaway" I was likely looking for.
While I knew that in advance, it was still somwhat disappointing. Food across the island was not impressive, and mostly expensive. Everything is flown in, everything. Most restaurants try to recreate some kind of Continental cuisine, poorly. Best to stick to local food. One caveat: Thrify Rent a Car at the airport was the worst experience on the island. A very long story short is that they produced a car that was shaking and leaking and, when we asked for "any other car," were told, "we have no more." "May I speak to the Manager?" The agent then called her head office, spoke in Papapmiento and would not let me speak - literally, would not hand me the phone, although I pleaded. We ran for another rental and, luckily found one at a local agency (we were there during February break and all cars had been reserved). When we returned 10 minutes later for our credit card slip, we were told we would be charged. Why? "You had the car." "You told me take it or leave it, it never left the spot you put it in - you can see where it has leaked oil for the past ten minutes; if you are taking that position then give me the car." "Sorry, we just rented it." "Then how can you possibly charge me?" "you are being charged." "Pls let me speak to your manager." "No." "What is your name?" "I'm not telling you, so you can complain?" That was about veratim our conversation. We were, of course, charged. I called the GManager from the AM and, he responded promptly and apologized. The charge was canceled. Nevertheless, it left the worst possible taste in our mouths. We travel extensively and such a thing has never happened. The cookie topper? Thrifty is the same price as all the others. I wouldn't rent from Thrifty ever again, even if the only other option was a skate board and roller blades for my family. In sum, AM was a great place to stay, enjoy. Say hello to everyone at the front desk.
Simply wonderfulfrom toothpro
Aruba is very easy and interesting to explore. It is very buitiful and different . Definetly go to the Baby Beach if you have children or not a very good swimer, the water there is very clean, calm and not deep.We are definately going back to Aruba.

Top Local Tips for Oranjestad
Rental Cars are Easy! Easy way to get around the island. We watched people going on tour buses and were so thankful we had chosen to do it on our own by renting a jeep. We saw exactly what we wanted to see on our own schedule. It was a day to remember.
Rent a jeep Go to the Beaches off the resort. They are amazing
Fun in the sun! We had beautiful weather in April. It was very warm with lots of sunshine. Remember the sunscreen!
