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.

Now a landmark in ARUBA this wooden windmill was shipped over from Holland, several decades ago. The dark pink and white windmill is now situated as you approach the hi rise area of the hotels on the island. Great for photos!

It was a great place for a cool picture, it isn't bad, but in person, it is kind of smalltime. It is on a somewhat desolate road and is in front of a hotel that is pretty run down.

I guess if you're looking for a cool picture, it isn't bad, but in person, it is kind of rinkydink. It is on a somewhat desolate road and is in front of a hotel that is pretty run down.

This Windmill is now a restaurant/club. A bit tatty but good to see! If you stay at the Riu Palace it is a 2 minute walk away!

I don't know how this is a attraction but it's not much. I don't know what else to say about it. This island does not have many things to do so after you third day you will be tempted to check it out.

You sort of just stumble across this historic site, but it's fun, it really sort of puts you in touch with the island's heritage. Definitely worth getting a photo of, and offers a few nice little shops around it. Save time for a creative and well-executed experience at Carte Blanche, an exquisite little restaurant with two brilliant guys at the... More
