Snap a picture on your way by from High Rises to Airport and you'll be good.... Not alot stood out here with this attraction- but that could be because we saw many of the "real" ones in Holland. Windmill is not really in great shape. Would not recommend to waste valuable vacation time to visit this attraction specifically.

A trip to see the windmill isn't something to do by itself. Diana's pancakes are a good add on thing to do. I had a caramel apple pancake and it was delicious. Also, you can walk across the street to the bird sanctuary.

The food here was above grade. I had a steak from Argentinian beef. My companion had the rack of lamb and she savored it so that she would not even share a bite with me. The steak was thick, juicy and cooked perfectly with the perfect charring on the outside and the middle third was still pink. The flavor was... More

The old windmill is just that, old and in need of major repairs. If you looks ta pictures around Aruba, the windmill is seen a lot. It looks perfect, and the shopping center around it looks vibrant. Not any more. The shopping center is as rundown as the windmill. Even the picture in this TripAdvisor page make the windmill look... More

If you're staying in the Hotel Zone you can see this thing in plain view and it looks like something that's worth seeing up close so we decided to take a walk. But, the closer you get you see how rundown it is, so we didn't bother to go all the way. At this point it's nothing more than a... More

Not much going on here, but it did make for some cool photos. There is some shops, possibly a bar/ restaurant?? All were closed when we visited. Easy to get to, worth a stop.

We walked a long ways over to the windmill from the Marriott to get an up close view. I think we actually enjoyed the walk better than we did the windmill, though. Not much to it.

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.
