Good for short stays

I went to this hotel for the weekend, after spending the week in the holiday inn. For the price, is a good deal. The beach is not close but you can take a shuttle. the swimming pool is very nice. There is not free wifi in the rooms, you have to go to the restaurant to connect. The room is clean, with a nice kitchen and bathroom. the furniture a little old. Nice Air conditioning. it depends in your budget. If u can pay more, i will recommend the holiday inn, but if you just want a nice clean room this hotel does the job.

Mediocre at Best

Front desk staff unwelcoming and not polite. They were not willing to help with problems. Rooms are old, appliances don't work and look like they were picked up at the dump. Beach associated with this "resort" was dirty and just not nice. Shuttle to/from beach dirty and not air conditioned. Towels in room were stained and had rips in them. Don't rent a car from Thrifty Rent a Car in lobby. They rent vehicles with out of date plates. We were stopped by a police officer and had to return the car. We were then stuck with out a car because the other plates were out of date as well. Good stuff: Marie the concierge was great as was the restaurant staff. Food was surprisingly good.

Needs TLC

The rooms need to be scrubbed. Mold in the grout/bathroom. The price is very good for the island, but sometimes you get what you pay for...It would be a great deal if it was cleaner.

Don't be fooled! Neither a "resort" or "Suite"

Our stay at the mill was terrible. In fact, we left before our check out. Terrible and snotty staff, overpriced, misrepresented, dated and run down rooms, paper thin walls, leaky ceiling, not on the beach.... skip it!

needed 1 night

The mill was perfect for what we needed, 1 night stay the day before our timeshare was available. The location was awesome, very short walk to the shops and restaurants of the high rise area. This property has an excellent pool, comfortable rooms and a great managers party on the night (thursday) of our stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great value for the $$$. made for an extra day on the island.

The Mill is Awful

I have just returned from a two week stay at The Mill. This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The rooms were filthy. There were bugs everywhere. The front desk staff was of no help with problems. The resort was under construction in several areas. Dust and noise were the norm. The housekeeping staff must have used the same dirty water to mop every room in the resort and my room had an offensive odor after each housekeeping visit. The booking included a $25.00 food and beverage credit. The resort did not honor it, saying that I had been misled. You'd be better off sleeping on the beach!

Aruba

The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. Had problem with towels for the room. Had no face clothes or hand towels. Location very good. Pools were very clean. People would save chairs at the pool and take off for the day. The person at the beach that worked for the Mill was excellent. Once he knew who you were would have the chairs ready for you. Also the bartenders were excellent. The weather was great while it snowed at home, it rained early in the morning and in the 90s all day and sunny.Dinning on the Island were excellent but a bit pricey.
