Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There wasn't a day that they did not exceed our expectationsmFrom! The minute we got in they gave us rum punch as a welcome. The staff was amazingly friendly every single one of them no matter what they were doing. They made you feel like family. The food at mangos was fantastic fresh and different recipes. The landscape is absolutely beautiful and the best possible spot on the beaches. We decided to visit other hotels confirming what we knew that Amsterdam Manor was indeed the best place and better than the high rise hotels. We never had to fight for beach space ever like other hotels. Highly recommended however conflicted on wanting to share this prize spot!

My wife and I were debating whether to stay in the high rise area (Palm Beach) or the low rise area (Eagle Beach). We ended up choosing the low rise area primarily because we didn't want to fight the crowds. The Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort met all of our expectations in this regard. My wife and I would run up to Palm Beach each morning. I think she would like some of the amenities offered in the high rise area (coffee stands, smoothie stands, etc.), but you could tell how much more crowded this area was. Our biggest issue with the Amsterdam Manor was the smell coming off of the sewage treatment plant. In some reviews, some people said they never noticed it, but we certainly did. It wasn't there 24/7, but you certainly would notice it every once in a while with some days being much worse than others. We started moving to the left on the beach each day which helped some. This place would get 5 stars across the board if not for the smell. I would have a hard time actually recommending this hotel to a friend simply because of the smell.

Amsterdam manor in Aruba is a must stay, room was perfect, food was outstanding , the beach was pristine never crowded perfect! What sets this place apart though is the staff, they did everything possible to make your vacation one of a kind . I was so impressed that I already booked for next year . thank you to the finest staff on the island ray reynolds

My Family and I LOVED ARUBA and will definitely return and stay at Amsterdam Manor!!

Our room had a small well stocked kitchen (everything you need –plates, utensils, soap, hand towels, dishwashing sponge, etc.) with a small refrigerator, cooktop, and microwave. The Super Foods grocery store (be sure to take your own recycle bags as they charge for theirs) is within walking distance. Yes, there is a small road to cross to get to the beach from the resort but don’t let this detour you. The beach is stunning with powder white sand and beautiful hues of blue-turquoise water. The resort has its own free chairs and palapas on the beach and we never once had an issue getting a palapa. It was a great stay!

Great hotel on a quiet beach! Friendly staff, perfect location, had a great stay!

Just excellent stay with perfect not crowdedvbeach

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Superior Staff/ Customer Service. We were treated like royalty. Hotel is located right on one of the most pristine beaches in the world. Water sports available for purchase right on the beach. (avg cost: $70 USD per half hour) Happy hour at bar pool every day 5-6pm then again 9-10pm. Drinks are 2 for 1. Managers cocktail hour on Thurs night. Hosted drinks are $1 USD with complimentary appetizers. Mango's restaurant on site is AMAZING. Passion's on the beach is AMAZING. Stayed in a "standard studio". So roomy and comfortable. The queen sized bed was super comfy, high end quality linens and big fluffy pillows. Room amenities were abundant. Refrigerator, coffee pot, hot water/tea brewer, dishes, cooking vessels, microwave, toaster, two burner stove top. We cooked most mornings. Supermarket a very short walk so we were able to stock up at beginning of our vacation and had everything we needed. We are already planning our return visit. Probably this fall!!

I have stayed at Amsterdam Manor 20 plus times & wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. It's a great little hotel on the best beach in Aruba. The rooms are very spacious & all have kitchens. Two excellent restaurants, Mangos & Passions plus 2 daily happy hours at Horizions bar!! Because of its smaller size you will experience a special personal touch...everyone knows your name! And you will avoid the craziness of the high rise area. It's one happy hotel on one happy island!!

The staff was welcoming and friendly right from the beginning. My room was clean, modern and spacious. Free wifi in addition to a station of computers to use if necessary. I felt very safe and secure. I'm planning a return trip to Aruba and I won't be looking elsewhere...I'll be staying at Amsterdam Manor.

We booked this trip very last minute - and I'm so glad we chose Amsterdam Manor. The two bedroom suite was perfect - kids spread out, enjoyed the balcony a lot. Small touches like dispensers full of shampoo, lotion in the bathrooms and a drying rack on the deck were nice. We walked to SuperFoods that night and got fresh fruits and snacks - loved the kitchen. Mangos was great for breakfast. Wish they had a little more variety at dinner (their lunch menu is bigger). Used room service once for late eve pizza - was nice option. Passions on the beach was a perfect evening - highly recommend. Never waited for a hut on the beach - always available (At all different times). Nice area(s) that are roped off for swimmers - made me feel safe with the children. Kids loved the smoothies at the beach bar. They also loved the free WIFI that extended out to the beach. Pool is small but kids enjoyed - wish it was open past 8pm. Highly recommend using public transportation bus to downtown - fast, safe and efficient. All staff were kind, helpful and truly want you to enjoy your time on the island. One traveler tip - room might not be ready before 4pm so make sure you bring a small bag so you can use the changing room in lobby and head out to the beach right away. We will be back!

We were surprised at how small the hotel was. The location is perfect, just across the street from a really nice beach. Book here if you are wanting a little more quiet stay on the island. The beach is private for AM guests and it's really nice, no craziness or people trying to sell you stuff. There likely won't be college kids drunkingly blaring music and stammering around here. AM still has a sweet happy hour so you can turn it up. You are about a mile south of the "strip" mega hotels, casino, and restaurants. The staff was really nice and informative about the island. They all show up at the Thursday happy hour so make sure to go there! You will probably need a car, bus, or taxi to get to nightlife. My only complaint was the room sizes are a bit small if you get the single king option. Oh and there are a lot of arses from Boston that go to Aruba, they were arrogant and drunk as hell.

very clean, close to everything . the staff was superb. its small, but adequate. no spa only a few restaurants but they were both excellent the rooms have a small kitchenette and there is an excellent large food store within walking distance

Taxi rides about $8 to everywhere on island. Great staff. Quiet facility.

The hotel is a small size, not a high rise, so we felt our service was very personal, we met with the concierge numerous times without waiting. Eagle beach is directly across the street and is beautiful. Buses can take you south to shopping "downtown" or north to shopping and restaurants near the high rise hotels, so convenient to everything.

Everything about ou stay was wonderful. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suit, Richard the bartender at beach was excellent and Peter was excellent at pool side bar, plus he sings! Had dinner at Passions on Saturday night, it was spectacular! The ambiance and sunset were amazing! Amy was our waitress, very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this resort to all!

The staff was very welcoming. My boyfriend and I had a great time!

A very nice experience, hotel staff very nice one in particular his name is Juan goes out his way to make sure you are having a nice time, a small pool but it was always empty the beach was like a pool I can see why the pool was empty. they have two, restaurants breakfeast we had every morning was not bad, we had a couple of meals on the beach also no bad had a good time...

Great mattress. Beautiful beach. Expensive but good restaurant. Quiet. Good pool. Negative: At the beach around 4pm they start to preparate the restaurant. You have to move from there, very incomfortable. They occuped all beach so early for restaurant. Then if you like to stay all afternoon at the beach..., sorry you must to find another hotel.

Nice hotel, very clean and well maintained property. Staff was nice and helpful with anything you may need. Rooms were kept clean and it is nice to have the little kitchenette with refrigerator in room if you wish to use. The overall location as far as access to things was good. You cross the street and are on Eagle Beach which is a long stretch of sandy beach. This beach is much less crowded than Palm Beach in the high rise area. If you want to go to the high rise area (Palm Beach) you could walk or there is a bus stop on beach right in front of hotel that runs every 15-20 minutes and takes you towards Palm beach or in other direction to downtown for about $2.50 p.p. Or the hotel will call a cab that arrives within minutes and it is an $8 ride to Palm Beach area. Palm Beach is where to go for walking around to restaurants, casinos, night life. The hotel is a short walk to Super Foods which is a nice to stock up on drinks, snacks etc. There is one downside to the location. It is near the islands waste water plant (you can’t see it) but at time is unfortunately downwind depending on the wind direction at times. This can cause some occasional odor to be noticed in the area. Again this is nothing against the hotel. I read reviews that said the felt the odor was unbearable during their stay. That seems extremely overly stated at least from our experience. For us it was not “unbearable” or I would have checked out and moved elsewhere, but I cannot say that we did not noti
