My wife and I are regular visitors to the family friendly Mill Resort in Aruba, The wind mill is due for a paint job, but is still great for a photo shot. From the Mill the beaches are within walking distance, and the high rise hotels and casino's are literally across the street. Some of the best restaurants, night clubs,... More

Stick to the tried and true crepes. My wife's was a good crepe with fruit; mine was an awful tiny pile of nondescript 'seafood'.rolled in a crepe; no savoury sauce to get it down. Staff was friendly. Others said they enjoyed their crepes.

a must-see venue located at the south end of the high rise area. Easy to access. Visitors are recommended to have breakfast at Diane's. The menu is dutch, specializing in dutch pancakes with a large assortment of toppings. These 'pancakes' more resemble a crepe. They are light and plentiful. The owner is on-site and stops by each table to assure... More

We stayed at the Old Mill hotel, a nice inexpensive hotel, and this is on the grounds so it is a natural photo op. Interesting if you haven't seen a Dutch windmill. Easy to get to, and very near many of the high rise beach front hotels, so it is good for a quick stop.

As a tourist destination it's not much because it's a non-working windmill. However, as a nightspot with a DJ and a 6 a.m. license, it's a great dance club. During the day if you come by, stop by Diana's Pancake Place which is next door from the windmill for the BEST Dutch-style pancakes EVER!

I went here with my wife because it looked fun from some of the reviews. Total waste of time. I am a fun expert, but this place was boring. Boring scene, people, avoid and save your time for everything in Aruba that IS fun.

The best after hours spot on the ISLAND. On the weekend this open air bar god until sun up! Really good DJS spinning all facets of House. Party with the friendly locals when they get off work from the other bars and clubs. Lots of cabs to get you home safe!

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.
