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.
With Continental and American breakfasts in the mornings, and international dishes come the evenings. Plus, there are live cooking stations and themed evenings including French, Mexican, Asian and barbecue.
These 1-bedroom apartments can be found in the main building. Your room can sleep up to 4 people with a king-size bed and a sofa-bed suitable for 2 people. Outside you'll find a terrace where you can take in the fresh air and the sea view. Inside there's air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, a kitchenette with a fridge and you'll have facilities to make a coffee too. Plus you'll also find a TV and a safety deposit box.

I liked the location as it was right across the street from a nice beach. Beach bar was good and convenient. I like that there is a grocery store like 2 blocks away, just behind the hotel. Staff was very welcoming and warm. I plan to go back one day. More

Quiet and Relaxing
Quiet and Relaxing was just what we were looking for. Eagle beach is definitely the place to stay. We toured into town and over to the high-rise area when we wanted excitement, but glad we could always come back to the serenity of this place. Stayed in two different rooms - both great; staff is always helpful.More

Nice, but not outstanding beach hotel
Overall well-maintained hotel at a very nice (but busy) beach. Restaurant "Passions on the beach" is definitely worth a visit despite the high prices - especially during sunset starting at 6pm. Very good breakfast.
However, as for Aruba as a whole, value-for-money is below average compared to other holiday Locations and Hotels. Our "Standard Studio" was ok, but had no window except from the glas door, so rather dark. Poor wifi on the room. Beach bar slow and with overpricd food and drinksMore
A great trip!
We are just back from a 5 night stay at the Amsterdam Manor. All staff were very
friendly, the grounds were immaculate. The beach is wonderful and the restaurant/bar
on the beach was a fun hangout! We are returning guests and welcome the opportunity
to plan another trip and stay at Amsterdam again! A nice mix of families, singles and
couples provided a nice atmosphere. We would highly recommend Amsterdam Manor!More

Close to perfect
I am sure many travellers recognize the feeling of walking past a nice hotel and thought: I wish i had stayed at this place. Amsterdam manor is such a place! So bear In mind my headline, when I mention the few things I found could have been better
Location: couldn't be much better . In the lowrise area, right at Eagle beach. a bit of noise from the road at busy times. On the other hand, convenient with the bus stop right there, frequent departures. Superfood supermarket less than 10 min walk
The rooms: stayed In a two bedroom suite with beach view balcony. Well equipped kirtchen. You could cook full meals. One bedroom had shower, the other one jaccuzzi. Housekeeping did a good job.
The beach: beautiful with very white sand. Facing the sunset. Beach bar, various watersports for rent. A bit annoying that it is allowed to reserve the sunbeds by placing your towel there. Already at 8 am front row was taken, but no people around. In the early afternoon the staff start preparing The Passions restaurant, carrying tables and chairs. So if you want to keep your sunbed till sunset, choose a position closer to the end of the beach.
Food: popular beach restaurant, make a reservation to have front row sunset dinner. Good food. Also another restaurant , Mango. Not much choice for vegetarians, limited to one pasta option in both restaurants. The highrise area with lots of restaurants are within easy reach by bus or walking.
Friendly staff, nice clean property
