As an attraction, this is a bust. It's a windmill, that's it. I understand that there is a good restaurant there but I did not go there. Again, I feel that it belongs under restaurants not attractions. A drive by at best.

I'm of Dutch descent and I was a bit offended - although one of the very few attempts at "incorporating" Holland's contribution to Aruba's history/present. I took 1 photo from my hotel as it is in the resort area but I agree it's rinky dinky and mostly there to attract you to that resort and it's restaurants. The night life... More

This place serves great Stroganoff and other Dutch specialties. Close to casinos, a movie theatre, and, of course, the beach and hotels - its is convenient and nice since it is a "Dutch" influenced island.

If you really want to see a windmill, you need to go to Holland or Mykanos, where they actually work and have canvas hung on the spines of the windmill. This is a tourist attraction that I would not make a special trip for. There is truly nothing scenic about the location. At the Jersey Shore there is a restaurant... More

Why not stop by and say you actually saw an old Dutch Windmill. Easy parking or just a short walk. Cute picture spot for families

The windmill is a nightclub, closes at 6 am.... We had pancakes for lunch at the next door Pancake Place. Friendly staff and good, tasteful pancakes. Children's pancakes were nicely done. The place definitely has a nice Dutch touch. Our plates were empty and clean when we left! Not much else going on: it seemed very quiet.

The Mill can be seen from the road near the high rise resorts. We had breakfast one morning at Diana's Pancake place on the same property. There is not much to the Mill other than a stop to take a few pictures. After a week on the beach this is something to say you saw.
