If you're not into going to a place to see a deactivated Windmill/Nightclub, you will not like it. I went because it was part of our tour. Not interesting attraction.

If you've never seen a windmill up close before, do go and see this one. But if you've been to East Anglia, Belgium or Holland before, don't bother. This is a windmill with a bar in it, sat square in the middle of a parking lot, surrounded by fast food and hotels. No charm whatsoever.

This was practically opposite the hotel I was staying at and I had to walk to the windmill to find out more. It was closed but was a local tavern. It looks great and makes a great photograph.

It's nice to see the old windmill but that's it. There isn't much too it. It isn't a working windmill so my kids and I were disappointed that we couldn't go inside it. We basically stood in the parking lot and took a few pictures but that was it.

If you're not quite ready to go home after a late night of partying, head to the "Mill" or Molen where locals hang out. They open until very late. There is a bar outside as well as a dance area inside the mill itself.

This is another name for the Old Windmill and no matter what you call the place it is worthwhile seeing it even nthough it may not be the most exciting thing you can do in Aruba.

The Olde Molen actually is another name for the WINDMILL or the facilities associated with the Windmill. As such, it definitely is worth seeing. Don't miss the Windmill for the Mill and don't miss the Mill for the Windmill.

For those who want to stay young this is a late night place to party opened to 3 am on the weekdays and 6 am on the weekends.. so if you are a night owl this is the hot spot for that!!!
