The Mill Resort & Suites Aruba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed for five days - the hotel is very family-friendly. On our second day, Aruba experienced a heavy rain. This caused the hotel room to get flooded. We asked for a different hotel room and were given one which faced the pool. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. The pool is very nice and well suited for kids. We did not use the kids programme, I am not sure there were activities offered. The walk to the beach takes about 20 minutes and at the beach the hotel provides free beach chairs and huts. So I would say, overall a pleasant experience.
We stayed 3 nights at The Mill Resort, a nice place to stay with friendly staff clean rooms with great air conditioning full fridge and pretty well equipped kitchen and other nice amenities ,pool,bar,restaurant they have a shuttle every 1/2 hour to the beach but if you don't mind walking it's not that far. The Mill is about half mile walk from the high rise hotel zone were most restaurants and shops are.Our only complaint was the walls are pretty thin and you could hear everything that goes on the room next door.
I traveled with 4 friends..One was playing in the poker tournament and she was set up to stay at the Mill..So we opted for the same..After reading the reviews I told my friend we might be in trouble..Well my fears were put to rest after check in..Our rooms were clean and nice..I picked to upgrade to one of the newly redecorated rooms and it was a very nice room..The staff at the restaurant were very nice and housekeeping also..The staff at check in were not quite as pleasant..Our only problem was trying to get coffee for our room…We asked for two days and still got none…So I would say spending $135.00 a night here or $300.00 down the street makes this well worth the stay...
All the 1 star reviews have got it spot on! Sullen unhelpful reception staff, poor housekeeping, paper thin walls, tatty studio suite, the list goes on.On arrival we were given a dirty unkempt room & immediately complained, told they were full & we would have to wait till the morning,after 10am. I then realised they had put us in a junior suite & not the studio that we had booked, so complained again. We were then offered the correct room, but on inspection we saw it hadn't been cleaned, the give away was urine all over the toilet seat, wet towels in the shower, dirty bedlinen etc.. Went back & told the unhelpful chap on reception, we then had to wait in the original ghastly room for over 90mins whilst they prepared the room.In their blurb they say ALL rooms have either a pool or garden view, our garden view consisted of the car park.Of the 9 nights we stayed, we were kept awake for 4 of them, between 2 & 5 in the morning, by excessive noise from the neighbouring suites, loud talking/laughing/fornicating etc..The state of the room needed a lot to be desired, the shower felt like the type of shower one might encounter in a correctional facility, the tv reception was akin to staring through a thick fog. Housekeeping consisted of making the bed & replacing the 2 towels, occasionally giving us an extra toilet roll. No surfaces were ever cleaned during our stay.If the resort does have any management, it was certainly conspicuous in its absence, as we never encountered anyone with authority.On checkout, we were asked how we enjoyed our stay, I said that we hadn't but she didn't seem too bothered!I will add another review soon when I can upload the pictures of the "garden view", so watch this space.
I was here for business, i had a great time, great people, nice staff, everyone was very friendly and helpfull.Clean rooms and a very nice pool with restaurant & bar. It's only a 5min walk to the beach and the shops. I highly recommend this Hotel!
