“Dutch Islands beat expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Our honeymoon got off to a great start our first day at Amsterdam Manor, where we were greeted with rum punch, a room upgrade, and a bottle of champagne - as well as early check in. A very attentive concierge, staff, and front desk helped us plan our activities, and all very super helpful and courteous. The short trip across the street to the beach was a bonus, and the hospitality of other hotel guests was amazing. Air conditioning worked fabulously, and it was a bonus to have our own cafe table out in front of our room to people watch at night at. Would highly recommend, and can't wait to go back.

We loved our time at the Amsterdam Manor. We had a two bedroom, two bath suite, which was very clean, spacious, and nicely laid out. The balcony looked out on Eagle Beach, which is absolutely gorgeous. Everyone was very friendly, and even though we only spent four nights, we felt right at home. The rum punch provided to welcome us was just the start of a great vacation. The pool is very nice, although it is on the small side. Who needs a pool, though, when you have the Caribbean just steps away? Definitely stop by the hotel's Upper Deck Bar, which looks over the pool. Stephan is great at making you feel like an old friend, and encourages everyone to talk with each other. We met people from all over the world. A few tips for future travelers: the front desk will rent you snorkel equipment, if you prefer to explore on your own. They may rent other equipment - it is always a good idea to ask. The concierge is very helpful, but she does represent DePalm, which is a good tour company. However, if you prefer another tour company, it is best to contact them directly. There are two casinos in walking distance, as well as a large supermarket and Dunkin Donuts (at the Tropicana), and the bus stops right in front of the hotel. However, we found a rental car to be very helpful, so we could easily explore the 'tamed' side of the island, since Eagle Beach is in the Low Rise Hotel area, which is much quieter than Palm Beach. Don't try to take a rental to Arikok, but make sure you go!

Room Tip: The two bedroom, two bath suites are beautiful.

This was my first trip to Aruba and I can tell you it will certainly not be my last. Amsterdam Manor was a great choice being in the middle of the high rise area and downtown and having full access to the beautiful Eagle beach steps away. After a long delayed flight we were greeted by wonderful helpful staff. We were upgraded to a two bedroom villa, with each room equip with a full washroom was a blessing for two single women travelling with lots of luggage and supplies.
Having wifi access was a great asset which was also accessible from the beach area with some sporadic down times.
Ate both at Passions and Mangoes. Both places were great. Spent four out of seven nights at Sopranos Piano bar until 1AM close at one then headed off to the old mill bar till three. That one is open later.
Anyways, as for Amsterdam manor the place is great and would highly recommend it.

We had our first trip to Aruba in December and we chose our hotel based on the comments here. The hotel was even better than we expected. It was clean, personal were really nice and smiling, nice pool and the location was just perfect! Hotels rooms were cleaned every day, got new towels if we wanted etc. We ate once on the beach restaurant, awesome. If we ever go back there, we will choose this place again.

Going to Aruba and wanted to re-new wedding vowels. Had tried to contact "Rev Robert Gibson", but he did not respond to any of my emails. Noticed that the Amsterdan had a wedding planner on staff (Anne Maduro) and contacted her and she responded right away and we exchanged a few emails.
I had advised her that I was now planning a large wedding, just a re-newal of vows and had wanted to do it on Eagle Beach (across from theri hotel)
She put me in touch with Lissy Lampe, who handles the Ceremonial part of hte wedding they plan.
Lissy was wonderful and most attentive. We worked out a plan and the entire evening was perfect. My wife was to be surprised and beleive she was. Lissy handled everything and all we had to do was just show up at an appointed time. She even provided dinner reservations at Passions on the Beach.
What amazed me was that she put this all together in less that three weeks time.

We spent couple of nights in a suite room. The best part about the hotel is the beach, it is cross the street from the hotel and it is special, after spending a few days in Curacao, we did get to appreciate a nice, wide, sugar powdered beach. We also appreciated the free breakfast for kids, since they have buffet and kids are picky eaters, it was refreshing to have complimentary breakfasts for my daughter.
The only downsides about this hotel was the pool which was below average for the resorts in the area, it was small and non descriptive, and when you pay $325 for night you have higher expectations. Also the noise and night was a bit of a problem. Regardless where your room is you are goind to be either facing a parking lot or a street....

We have stayed here several times and also visited other hotels in Aruba, this is our favorite!
The small boutique hotel with the best beach of Aruba and the unique "Aruba" signature tree in front of the hotel is a perfect place to spend your holiday. For both couples and families this is perfect. Not a large multi floor and massive hotel - but the Amsterdam manor is giving you the warm and friendly atmosphere which is hard to find. The manager and staff really make you feel at home in Aruba.
