I would highly recommend the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort as a place to stay while in Aruba. Our stay there was April 14 - 20, 2012. You won't find the oppulence seen at the high rise hotels (i.e. Marriott, Hyatt) but the Amsterdam Manor is a perfect low rise hotel, with clean, efficient, welcoming rooms, and a wonderful staff that always have a smile and hello for you. The location is perfect; directly across from Eagle Beach, which is one of the best in Aruba. There is plenty of shade under many Palapas along their stretch of beach. There are 2 very fine restaurants located on the grounds; Mangos and Passions On the Beach as well as an open air bar overlooking their fabulous pool area. Peter their bartender will make sure your glass is never empty, and will entertain you with his awesome and diverse selection of music. Their Thursday evening cocktail party with live music was so much fun! Be sure to listen each day for Peters unique way of announcing "happy hour" at 5 & 9 PM each day. Amsterdam Manor provides a very relaxed, family friendly atmosphere without the crowds of people you tend to encounter in the high rise hotel section of the island. The bus stops right in front of the hotel and the location is midway between Oranjestadt (shopping) and the high rise hotel section (shopping and entertainment). Our room was clean, the bed very comfortable, and we made use of the efficiency kitchen after a trip to the grocery market which was quick bus ride away. We made some great memories and are already planning a return trip for next year. My only minor concern while at Amsterdam Manor was with the jacuzzi bath tub in our room. The step to get in and out of this tub was not easy, especially with wet feet, and considering I am only 5'1" tall. Other than that minor concern, I give this hotel an Excellent rating.
