It has been converted into a night spot....and it literally stays open and rocking until the sun comes up..its called Olde Molen and is on same property as The Mill Resort. Check it out!

More Bang for the Buck

The Mill Resort is located across the street from The Westin Hotel on Palm Beach in Aruba. It is a small friendly complex of about 200 rooms. It is nothing fancy, but the rooms and grounds are kept clean. It is within walking distance of many casinos, restaurants, and Palm Beach. I stayed for three weeks for the price of one week at the more exclusive high rise hotels. Since I spent all of my time at the pool, the beach, and the casinos at night...a luxurious room to sleep in was not a priority. If you are on a restricted budget, The Mill is for you.

Inexpensive Possibility With a Great Pool

The Mill Resorts is a relatively inexpensive, older, non-inclusive resort where you will have to pay more for the extras: internet, lost towels, etc. Located 5-minutes walking to Palm Beach and ~$25 taxi ride from the airport. The pool is very relaxing and beautiful and the bar closes at 10:30. Pros: Location to Palm Beach, Price, Pool, Cold Room, Family Friendly Cons: Somewhat dated, no free wireless, scared of losing deposit over nothing

Within ten minute walk from hotel is a strip for nightlife, albeit the same you would find in America.

More Bang for the Buck

The Mill Resort is cozy little 220 room 2 level hotel on the main drag of Palm Beach in Aruba. There is nothing fancy, but in Aruba what do you really need? The employees are competent and friendly. The pool is well kept and you can always find chairs or you can take a chair at the beach. You can walk to all of the casinos and many fine restaurants. I stayed for 19 days for the same money that I would pay for 1 week at the all-inclusive high rises across the street. For me, I get more "bang for the buck" at The Mill.

If you like gambling, I would reccommend the Hyatt Casino which is a 15 minute walk from The Mill. They have a good ventillation system that eliminates the smoke that I encountered at the other gambling venues.

Aruba Getaway

My stay was brief,but pleasant. The staff was friendly, the pools were great, and the location is good. This hotelis a great place to get up to three adjoining rooms.

Not designed for adults

Beautiful pool area. Guests are young, down to age 3, If you want to converse in English with the other guests; forget it. Many tweens, with and without parents. If you a Gay single male forget that as well.Nice staff, but everything costs you. U.S. phone service is so expensive you really need to call collect. They encourqge it. Your cell phone should work great if you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars to make a few phone calls daily including checking voicemail.Cab to airport will cost $30.00 each way. A beer at $ 5.00 apiece. The Europeans are very well behaved and cluster to each other, probably because of language and culture. Your not going to start a conversation with the Swede, Dutch, Spanish or Columbian family next to you. They keep to their own. Additionally, Idon't think they speak English.The rooms are nice and have really nice Euro bathrooms which are large.Activities are geard to kids and the really dull.. The rooms have full kitchens but the hotel makes sure you do not have a food market anywhere near the hotel zone. You have to drive downtown to get to a market. Which means you have to get a car. You can take a bus, but try that with groceries. A quarter mile to get to good restaurants and shopping is O.K. And you get to sightsee, mostly of more expensive hotels. And getting out of Aruba is pure Hell..It will take 3 hours or more and you and your luggage is checked a half dozen times over. That is of course when TSA shows up, which is not a sure bet at least when the airport says there supposed to be there. So you wait.

Get a car for a least shopping..Otherwise you are at the mercy of the Hotel. And unless you plan on eating at the same Garden Cafe restaurant every night and no shopping your skrewed. And if you are a Gay person this is not the Hotel for you.

Avg.. but Enrique, the bartender, rocks!

It was a good hotel. Definitely good service for the price. We didn't expect a 5-star gig so it was fine. In general customer service in Aruba was not that great and this hotel was no exception. However, the Colombian bartender, Enrique, was amazing. He helped us find the cool places to go to, and would keep us entertained during a short breaks at the bar. He introduced us to a small group of guests staying from Venezuela so we were able to make nice friends that we are still in touch with. The Internet fee at the hotel is a bit of a rip off but I guess one's not there to be on the computer. Also, the beach is not as close as one would think but they have a shuttle and it is within walking distance. Also, they're late night snacks--sandwiches--are horrible. Make sure to buy things at the supermarket if you have a car, or get it from the hotel store before it closes. Otherwise, you'll come back to your hotel at 4am after partying and you have nothing to munch on. :)
