Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I stayed at Amsterdam Manor for 6 nights. Once we arrived, Julio checked us in and we found out we had been upgraded from a King room suite to a 2 bedroom ocean front suite. We were on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the ocean (from across the road - I've seen negative reviews about being across the street - but BELIEVE me -that is NOT a problem). We stayed in room 201. It was perfect.The beds were comfortable and bathroom very nice. The kitchen offers microwave, gas stove, large refrigerator, pots/pans, dishes, silverware. There is no oven. Eagle Beach is beautiful. The water was clear and refreshing after being in the sun. You can get beach towels and a mat for your lounger at the beach and we never had a problem finding chairs and umbrella on the beach or at the pool. We went to the pool most days in the afternoon after spending most of the morning and early afternoon at the beach. The pool was never crowded. We bought groceries from Super Foods grocery store a short walk from the hotel and ate our breakfast and lunch in the room. You need to take a bag with you or buy one from the grocery store. You pack your own bag - they don't do plastic - and the bags are almost $4 each. We had our dinners out every night. One night we ate at Mangos - one of the restaurants on site. It was excellent. We attended the Happy Hour from 5-6 a couple of times at the bar by the pool. Everyone that works at this resort is friendly and helpful. Patrick - the concierge was very helpful in setting us up for some island tours. We went on the Catamaran Snorkeling trip and Jeep Tour. Both were excellent trips (I'll write separate reviews for them on their page) We liked the Palm Beach area for restaurants more so than downtown Oranjestad. Both places had many shopping stores. We got around from place to place using the bus. It was $5.20 for 2 each way. Sunday is a little harder to get around - bus service is every hour instead of 15 min. and a lot stores and restaurants are closed on Sunday. If we ever come back to Aruba we will definitely stay here again!
This boutique hotel is located just steps from the #1 beach in Aruba, Eagle Beach. The hotel has free chairs & cabanas righr on the beach, where there is also a bar and restaurant. The hotel is a bit older, but well maintained. We had a 1br suite with small kitchen, which came in quite handy. All rooms are very close to nice pool and great views of the ocean.The staff is professional, but not overly friendly. It could be culture, but we would have liked a bit more warmth. Our only issue was a broken coffee machine, which took all week to replace, despite repeated requests. Alternative was $3 coffee at restaurant!
We had a 2 BR apptmt with full kitchen and patio 👀 out to the pool / beach. The interior is beautifully decorated. The AC was a bit cold and loud and we couldn't control the temp well even though we set it to warm temp, the air was still cold. So if you like it cool, that AC is perfect. Right outside the condos is a small pool, and across the street a beautiful beach with towel service and bars and restaurant right by the beach. Food is pricey but very good.Bus stop right across the hotel between the pool and the beach. 2.60$ one way pp to go up to "downtown" aka high rise area. Bus comes roughly every 20min. We did that daily, no need to waste money for a taxi.Within 15min walking distance is a grocery store so we went grocery shopping once and had food in the kitchen for our stay. Not much action going on here in the evening at all but downtown is just 10min bus ride away so if you like it a bit more secluded and calm, this is a beautiful place.
Just had a week at this hotel, rooms beautiful and fully equipped. Lovely decorated even comes with remote mood lighting. Hotel staff very welcoming and friendly. Food was first class apart from breakfast could do with a change of foods your limited and it's a little bland it's missing tomatoes, beans or mushrooms. Al a carte menu first class along with themed dining. The bar in the beach belonging to the hotel is really nice and lunch time snacks tasty. Free beach towels and sunbeds on the beach a bonus along with free wifi, safe and air con. Would recommend this place top notch .
This review could not sum up this exquisite little hotel. Please trust me, if you're umming and ahhhing over which hotel to choose, I've done the leg work for you, it is absolutely delightful. It is about 200 feet from the gorgeous 'bounty advert' beach. Showing my age now...! The road, and I'm loath to call it a road, is quiet and sedate, never busy and certainly not noisy. Everyone stops to let you across if you do see a car. We were upgraded to a 2 bed suite with full sea view which was stunning and we were very grateful. The staff are so sweet and friendly, breakfast is a lovely affair, very quiet and relaxed. Perhaps if I was overly critical to the point of petty I'd say that sometimes standing like a lemon waiting at the omelette station for the chef to appear was a little 'off' but I was so chilled and happy I didn't care!! The male omelette maker was very nice, female one a little stern...the serving staff were a delight and the blond lady was really so nice, very demure, with a lovely gentle approach. Breakfast was good. Full selection of American breakfast, continental, fruit, juices, cereals, etc. Good range of coffee, we also ate there in the evening twice and both times we thought it was good. Expensive, but as everything is imported to Aruba you have to expect that. Our suite was wonderful, jacuzzi tub, mood lighting, spotlessly clean and each evening chocolates are brought to you by housekeeping. Bedding clean, slept all through the night. Every night. Air con good, never conked out once. Candles provided for balcony/terrace lighting at night. Little shop open all day for small items you may need but it's a tad expensive compared to the super food shop which is a 3 minute walk away. I could prattle on and on about this gorgeous hotel. It has a very exclusive feel to it which I can't do credit to here. We like to travel about, but we are already looking at booking again in June or September next year. I've got a feeling this hotel has lumbered us with an expensive hobby every year as we'll still want to see other places, but wouldn't want to forgo this! Sitting on the balcony now on our last night listening to the ocean (feeling bad for others who are currently being devastated by Hurricane Irma) but thinking how lucky we are to be safe here and to have discovered this magical little gem that is Amsterdam Manor.
