“Perfect Vacay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

My husband and I arrived at this hotel and were pleasantly greeted by there staff. Once we got to our room we were happy with the room, but was not pleased with the location(construction was our view). The next morning the manager Simone took care of our complaint by switching our room to the Honeymoon suite. ( this was our anniversary trip), and the room was great. The staff there was friendly and very accommodating. I don't have one negative thing to say about this hotel or its staff. If I went back, when I go back I will definitely stay there again. People that have had bad experiences are more than likely hard people to please. This is a very quite laid back kind of hotel. Its conveniently close to everything. Huge grocery store in walking distance, the beach is about 10 steps away. If your looking for a vibrant, exciting hotel this is not it. Its not the Ritz Carlton or any other big name place. I have read some of the negative remarks and feel like they were isolated incidences. The pool wasn't that great 4ft' (but who comes to Aruba for the pools) Loved my stay, will recommend to all my friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade. Make sure to eat at Passions on the beach

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy that the only complaint that you had was solved by Simone on property and that you have enjoyed your stay with us. As you have mentioned our pool is only 4ft, on the other hand Eagle Beach;one of the most beautiful beaches of the Caribbean is one step away. And we are sure that you have enjoyed the white sandy beach and the crystal blue water. We hope to see you back soon at our property.

This was our 4th trip to Aruba and our 4th stay at AM. It was perfect as always. The staff is great, very nice, polite, friendly and just like family now. Sasha, Cher, and Julio are always wonderful to talk to. We have never had any problems while staying here. If anything needed to be done (a light bulb out, new towels) whatever they were always quick to get it taken care of. The food at Mangos is always great. My kids love getting ice cream at night and eating it on the balcony. The beach is always clean and not very crowded. It was a little more crowded this time because we were there during spring break but still not bad. The only thing was and we did mention this to the AM and they are working on it people get up early in the morning and put their towels on chairs to reserve them then leave the beach and don't return till afternoon leaving the chairs unoccupied and not usable for anyone else. But you cant blame the hotel for that. We heard some people complain that the staff at the beach bar was always fighting we did not find that I think it is just their way of having fun and some people take it wrong. They were great when we were there. We cant wait until we return for trip number 5 keep up the great work AM our second home. The beach bar is great too.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the 1bdrm, 2 bdrm suites and penthouses. All are wonderful we prefer the open ba...

We were looking for a smaller hotel and found that it is a perfect fit for us. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We booked a standard studio and we were upgraded to a superior studio. Beach/pool bars are great. Passions on the Beach restaurant is a very romantic dining option (toes on the sand). The city center is a short bus ride and the bus stop is right across the street. Truly one relaxing vacation! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Room 104A next to Mango's is perfect for us. Ground floor, ocean view.

We stayed in room number c6 at Amsterdam manor for 14 days, and have some mixed feelings about it. The hotel is ok. Not great, but ok. Frendly staff, and a great location. Some things that should be taken care off:
-poor water pressure and almost no hot water.
- a rusty nail sticking up in the bathroom floor.
-very noisy dehumidifier in the room.
-they have a poster that shows they are a green hotel and if you want your towels changed, you should leave them at the floor. They changed every towel every day. Even the ones we had not used.
- the room service staff emptied our bathroom trashcan in the toilet at two different days, we noticed this becouse they had not managed to flush it all down and plastick pacages and razor blades where still floating in the toilet. Yeah, a very green hotel..
-at check out we had a complimentery room so we could take a shower before we left becouse of a late fligt, witch was great! The only problem was that there was no clean towels at the room, and the room was very dirty. You could see that somebody had just checed out of the room. Toothpaste at the sink and a lot of sand on the floor, and no freaking clean towels.
-ordered a burger at the beach bar just before we left, and it was raw on the inside.

I think we will stay at a different hotel next time we visit aruba. Would expect more at this price.

The inn is attractive and clean, with a super-friendly staff. Our ground-floor room was very well furnished and equipped (including the kitchenette). Bed was perfectly comfortable. Bathroom was clean, sufficiently large, and convenient. A/C worked well; as with almost all hotel rooms, it was a bit noisier than I'd prefer. There was a nice mix of guests, from young families with children to retirees. The Mangoes restaurant had much better food, service, and atmosphere than we'd expected -- we ended up eating every breakfast and dinner there. The beautiful Eagle Beach is directly across the street. The bus to town stops directly in front of the resort (USD 2.30 per person each way, US cash).

Room Tip: We were upgraded when we checked in; don't know why. Front-facing rooms would generally be bett...

I absolutely loved the Amsterdam Manor!!! Even from check-in, the staff was friendly and welcoming. They were very knowledgeable about the island and took the time to answer any questions we had. I travel for a living, so I spend most of my life in large, high-rise, impersonal hotels...so I wanted exactly the opposite for this vacation. I wanted personal attention, authentic to the dutch heritage, and separate entrance for my room (aka, not a high rise). And it certainly was! It was only a two story and was set up in little separate bungalow type of place. The staff all knew who we were and were very accommodating. Clean rooms. Friendly staff everywhere. Rudy, the waiter at Mango's, was absolutely hysterical. Julio at check-in was awesome.

It was an easy walk to the shopping areas, less than a 5-min walk to the grocery store, and their beach was by far the best that I saw. Not to mention the food! Fish tacos at Paradise on the beach...just get them. Trust me.

I would highly highly highly recommend his for anyone traveling to Aruba. I'm SO HAPPY we stayed there!

Amsterdam Manor is located on Eagle Beach; and, Eagle Beach in 2013 was listed by TripAdvisor as the 9th BEST BEACH in the world! Staying AMBR on Eagle Beach.......is the best of both worlds....accommodations and beach. Starting with a very attentive staff our stay at Amsterdam Manor was terrific! From the time we checked-in to check-out we can not say enough about the entire staff. Jurgen van Schaijk, General Manager for the past 24 years , has a built a team of dedicated individuals who cater to their guests. Consider AMBR a 'boutique' hotel that has only 72 units and most have a beach/sunset view. AMBR has been synonymous with trips to Aruba since 1990; and, a week just is not enough! The property has matured with the addition of Passions Beach Bar and over the years there has been a significant improvement beach area itself. We were in a 2-bedroom balcony unit and the sun sets right in front of our unit. Then for an incredible dining experience there is PASSIONS on the beach. It's a WOW....we dined on the beach two nights. The service was incredible....Nataly was our server the first night and Eleanor for our second, the food / wine selections...excellent, a violinist walking through the dining area added romance along with the fabulous sunsets.........
