Overview

Family-friendly resort with superb customer service
Pricey accommodations with lackluster decor

The Dutch colonial-style architecture of Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort Aruba – with yellow stucco walls and a red-clay roof – sets this boutique resort near Palm Beach apart from Aruba's modern high-rises. Guests say the pricey rooms are nothing special, but the intimate and friendly customer service is what earns the resort its four-star rating. All rooms come equipped with kitchenettes or kitchens, TVs, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi access and private balconies or terraces. Outside the rooms, travelers have access to the sandy, palapa-studded beach, as well as two pools (including one for kids). Visitors can dine on seafood right on the sand at the Passions on the Beach restaurant or the casual thatched-roof bar, or enjoy the buffet or a la carte themed dinners at the semi-open-air Mango's Restaurant. Although standard room rates do not cover meals and drinks, all-inclusive packages are available for an extra fee.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Eagle Beach is right across the road with water-sports operators (one of the few places with Jet Skis) and the restaurant, Passions on the Beach, is a romantic toes-in-the-sand dining spot frequented by off-property guests and locals as well. Tile-floor rooms range from small, elegantly appointed studios (some with ocean-view balconies) to two-bedroom suites with peaked ceilings and whirlpool tubs; all have kitchenettes.

With only 72 rooms, this Dutch colonial-style complex has a boutique feel, while still boasting amenities of larger chain hotels, such as themed nights at the restaurant with a live Latin dance show. The family-run resort features two restaurants – one that's beachfront – and two bars, plus weekly movie nights on the beach, bike rentals for those who want to go exploring, and snorkel and float rentals.

Renovations in late 2014 brought brighter colors, cosmetic upgrades, and some expanded space. Generously sized rooms have a contemporary Dutch colonial decor and come with impressively stocked kitchens and outdoor space; some bathrooms have whirlpool tubs.

If all you need is a palapa and a long stretch of cobalt blue water, look no further. The 72 rooms have either courtyard or ocean views, though you probably won't spend much time indoors – aside from a perfect crescent beach, there is a freshwater pool, two restaurants, and a bar with a popular happy hour.
