With contemporary interiors, a colonial shell, and a world-famous beach just a stone’s throw away, the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort looks good inside and out.
This bijou-sized hotel looks just like Aruba’s Dutch colonial buildings – expect bright-yellow walls, gable fronts, and white-frame picture windows. The interiors, however, have had a 21st-century makeover.
The hotel is just across the road from Eagle Beach, a powder-white stretch that’s been rated among the world’s best. A five-minute bus ride will take you to the heart of the colourful capital, Oranjestad.

From the time we landed at the airport and got thru customs and got a taxi and to the hotel and into the pool was less than 45 minutes.....very fast and smooth. Less than 5 minute walk to the Super Food (take a bag with you) where there is also a liquor store. We stocked up for breakfast and lunch and beer & Vodka. bus stop right out front to get to the High Rise district ($5) or a taxi ($8). Lot's of options to eat there...don't miss Texas de Brazil....a Meat Lovers dream come true. Back to the Amsterdam Manor: super friendly staff who are very accommodating and helpful. Do NOT miss Peter in the Horizons Bar above the swimming pool...he is amazing. We did use the Amsterdam's Passiions on the Beach for lunch one day, it was good not great. On Tuesday night its local fishermans seafood feast at Mangoes on the property...very good, great atmosphere. All in all it was all we needed and not ALL Busy with touristy stuff. Great relaxation with amenities on ground or close by. We will be back.More
No complains, everything was Good. Awesome bar with the bartender peter, Good drinks. Further everybody was Nice and kind. Beach was Good and the swimmingpool also. Stayed here for a week, I'm sure I Will go here again.More
Wonderful hotel, but that smell...
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. The hotel staff was fantastic and you couldn't beat the sunsets from the upstairs pool bar. 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.More
Friendly staff, good breakfast, Rooms are functional & well cleaned. Expensive for British customers - service charges (15%) plus taxes! Loved by American customers. Aruba extremely hot despite the constant wind. Fabulous beach. Very glad to be home in Bonnie Scotland.More
OKAY IF YOU LIKE A LOW RISE ON EAGLE BEACH
We stood in Aruba once before at a High Rise Hotel on Palm Beach. This time it was a last minute trip so we decided to go with a Low Rise on Eagle Beach because we got a good deal. Two very different experiences so it depends on what you like and which beach you prefer to stay on. Palm Beach is a very busy beach, but one which I prefer. Eagle Beach is very quiet and laid back and much easier to get a spot on the beach. For Amsterdam Manor, here are the Pros and the Cons: PROS: Excellent, friendly and helpful staff especially the concierges. We had the one bedroom suite with a kitchen which was large, roomy and clean. Didn't like the refrigerator basically sitting in the kitchen with some sort of painted wood around it. Good if you're travelling with kids rather than cramping everyone up in a hotel room. Can save money in expensive Aruba and eat in if you want some nights. There is a grocery store nearby. Patio outside room to sit and relax. Not much privacy though. CONS: Ridiculously small pool and hot tub. You'll look at it and say "This is the pool?" Have to cross the road to get to Eagle Beach. The hotel is NOT set on beach. Shopping and restaurants are NOT within walking distance like they are on Palm Beach. We had to end up renting a car or we would have been STRANDED on Eagle Beach. At least on Palm Beach, you can walk to places. Taxis were becoming way too expensive. Scenery leading up to the hotel is unattractive. It's a low rise so you're ground level with patio doors so people can see into your room so it's either leave the drapes open for light or close them for privacy and have a pretty dark room. Really can't close the curtains on kitchen door or window on other side. Overall, it's what you're looking for. My husband liked it much better than I did. For me I would go back to the Hyatt on Palm Beach. Low Rises aren't my speed and neither is Eagle Beach. But low rises on Eagle Beach might be your speed.More
