We had a very good holiday staying at the Amsterdam Manor for 7 nights. We are a family with two young children. We were looking for a relaxing break where we could enjoy family time in an easy atmosphere. We are currently on international assignment in Santiago Chile and the purpose of the trip was to relax. We certainly managed it.

The hotel staff are very nice and their service was excellent. The hotel is very well positioned on the beach (it is across the road from the beach though which I wasn't aware of). The beach is beautiful, the sand clean and the water clean and warm. Very safe for our wee ones. There were plenty of sun loungers and shade. The pool was very nice - it isn't huge but there never seemed to be too many people for it.

The food is excellent (a great treat after Chile) and the restaurant catered for our severely food allergic toddler (milk, egg and nuts) very easily (always a big worry for us).

The supermarket is very close and had very good choice including soy milk for our son and marmite (such a treat after 6 months in Chile). The concierge had gone ahead and bought us some groceries for our apartment after I had emailed her in advance as we arrived quite late.

We had a penthouse suite (2 bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, diner and lounge with big balcony). We had booked a 2 bed suite but were upgraded. This was perfect for us. The kitchen is very well equipped and we actually could cook easily which is rare in our experience where kitchens are often very badly equipped.

Our only slight negatives were:
1. somehow our taxi booking for going to the airport went wrong and was not promptly fixed. We ended up in a rush at the airport only after frankly I was rather rude to the concierge and demanded she get us a taxi pronto. A shame to end on such a note.
2. Our suite overlooked the service area (not from the balcony which overlooked the sea) which is poorly screened and often the bins were rather smelly in the heat. Didn't bother us too much but they could try to make it all a bit more discrete.
3. To make it equivalent to other beach retreats we have been on round the world, they could do with more equipment like kayaks for guests to use. There is also no bar service to sun-loungers at beach or pool - not an issue really for us as it is always easier with our son if there is less food around but others might expect it.

The bus service around Aruba is excellent and we zipped around as a family quite a few times.

Aruba is a great place for a young family. Clean and safe with lovely beaches. Amsterdam Manor is at the low rise hotel area which is Eagle Beach - by far nicer than a few kms up the road at the high rise end - next to the high rises the beach is VERY busy and noisy and the beach isnt nearly so nice. Personally I would have hated to have ended up in the high rise area - the RIU looks particularly horrid - but that is our taste.

Aruba is not as beautiful as say the Cook Islands (we are from New Zealand) or Lankawi in Malaysia - it is dry, flat and possibly a bit boring - but it fitted the bill for us which lovely beach and sea and good food.

we arrived by a bus (our little shuttle from the airport). then it began.. I know it was May.. but this place was A+. all the way. they started by giving us an upgrade. .from a standard room to a one bedroom suite.. OMG.. I have never had an upgrade before.. and it was my bd.. NOW I am excited.. thought it is to good to be true.. NO .. everything . .was good.. from Myra the lady at desk who does the tours and cars.. to the lady in the little store .. she was the nicest .. we used the pool coming back from the beach. also.. clean kept and not that many people at this time.. the beach .. wonderful no stones sea weed or beggers.. just lush. .the room .. is a must. one bedroom suite. OMG.. wow. .I came in and said that and then the bellboy came with our luggage.. wow. .we went with something other then AI.. but I will never do that again.. it is AGA.. buy food coupons before you leave for fancy restraunts and then eat there.. half the food is not allowed to you .. but some of the places are.great.. you have to look at the fine print i guess.. next time I will stay at AMB.. but go with there AI.. for sure.. can't wait to next year. .

Room Tip: get a suite faceing the ocean .. well worth the money

Pros:
It's a smaller hotel but appreciate it! I went to the larger hotels and it was crazy large amounts of people everywhere (but if that's what u want go for it) the hotel itself is pretty and well maintained the gardeners are up everyday to keep the land scaping to a t! The cleaning ladies were especially helpful and brought us extra hand towels when we needed them. The room was 2 bedroom 203 and was amazing the furniture and kitchen were up to date and the thoughtfulness put into what type of things that should go into a kitchen was amazing. In addition to the essesntials they also gave you a hot water maker a blender toaster and even Tupperware :) now that's thoughtful

Rooms
Master bedroom was extremely comfortable and huge and nicely decorated the plus was the equally large and decadent bathroom with tub jacuzzi

2nd room

Two twin beds that were comfortable as well. Enough closet space to accommodate
2-4 people and nicely connected to the 2 bathroom

Overall The rooms were great and when you walk in the rooms play classical music to put you in the mood for relaxation

Location
Makes this place amazing it literally 20 steps from eagle beach which is great cause you can plan a day at the beach then run home for a snack then back out to the beach also the amsterdam manor patrons get free yellow floats to use in the water
It is also a ten minute walk away from super foods the market

Staff- nilo, Thelma, Juan were all amazing even the girls at mangos who do the room service but I must say to elevate this place even further the front desk staff should be more personable they were not rude but if they were a bit warmer it would make this hotel much better

In the end I will come back here and I will most definitely tell people to stay here it's beautiful clean and aruba is amazing

The hotel is amazing. The best location in the island. It is nice an quite so if you want to relax this is the place. However it is very easy to grab a taxi or a bus to the high rise area or downtown where all the happening places are. My husband and I loved it.

A very nice hotel, kept in the typical colonial style of the dutch antilles. The location is very good, easy hopping to town via bus. It is quiet there, with many rooms having seaview (class: deluxe room or above), where the sea and beach as such are very nice. A very good restaurant at the beach (rightly ranked highly on trip advisor: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g147249-d1046722-Reviews-Passions_on_the_Beach-Palm_Eagle_Beach_Aruba.html ) had a great and romantic dinner there, directly on (!) the beach, with torches etc.. Rooms are also nice, and the people working there are very friendly - matching the Aruba Island title "One Happy Island"). In case we'll return to Aruba one day, we'll definitely go there again.

Room Tip: Rooms not on the first floor have a better seaview
