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.

Well-kept, clean, beautiful resort and excellent location
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort January 7th-11th. We had a terrific time. The resort is very well kept and super clean. I see reviews about sewage scents which made me nervous, but it was a non issue. From time to time there was a faint smell, but that's it. Great location as it sits ocean front right across the street which was also a non issue as most large resorts have much longer walks to the beach then the furthest room from the beach in this resort. I would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone considering it and I am very picky. Everything was wonderful with this resort.More
During our visit at my son's/daughter in law's house at Aruba we had a drink and a piece of pizza at the bar. Bartender Peter took good care of us and gave good explanations as we were watching the American football final. Apart from the resort that we don't know, the bar is a nice place to stay for a couple of hours.More
Would stay here again
We booked a room at Amsterdam Manor after reading the reviews and deciding that this place was a good fit. We wanted a low key resort with some amenities and beautiful beach. We were very happy with our choice when we arrived. I loved the small size, personable staff(especially the bartender above Mango's), room amenities, location and beautiful beach with plenty of chairs and palapas. The restaurants had great food and drinks. In fact Mango's was probably on par with our best dinners in Aruba! We booked a one bedroom suite but for just the two of us, we really didn't need that large of a room. We were only in our room to sleep, eat breakfast and lunch and shower. Incidentally, the shower was the only negative and it really wasn't that big of a negative. There is no door or curtain on the shower and water gets splashed onto the bathroom floor and gets very slippery. The one bedroom suite also has a smaller bathroom than the studio. If you are looking for a quiet, personal but private experience on a beautiful resort, then Amsterdam Manor is your place. When we return to Aruba, we will be staying at Amsterdam Manor and we usually don't stay at the same place but in this case we will.More
Wedding at Passions
My family has been vacationing in Aruba for 15 years. As soon as I got engaged, I knew that Aruba was where I wanted to have my wedding. I emailed some resorts and no one got back to me. My mother suggested Passions because it was so close to La Cabana (where we stay every year) and the food is always so good when we go there. I emailed Passions to get some information and within a day Anne Maduro got back to me. She was such a pleasure to talk to and you could tell she knew exactly what she was doing. It wasn't a hard decision at all! We knew we had to have our wedding there! Anne made it so easy for us! She got me in contact with Lissy Lampe. Lissy took care of the ceremony, officiate, flowers, music, photographer etc. These two ladies are a dream team! They were so wonderful to work with! They made everything so easy for me! I highly recommend them if you think you want to have a wedding in Aruba! My wedding day was perfect! Everything went as planned! My reception looked so beautiful. I brought lots of decorations/favors and Anne and Lissy set it up exactly how I pictured it! We decided to go with the "Aruban BBQ Buffet". It was so delicious! There was so much food-Oh my god! We all had a big mound of food on our plates! All my guests told me that was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The service was excellent! The servers were so friendly and did an amazing job! None of my guests went up to the bar, the servers always made sure everyone had a drink. We were so impressed by everything! Anne and Lissy made my day so special. If you want a stress free and flawless wedding; have your wedding at passions and have Lissy Lampe plan your ceremony! You won't be disappointed!More
Our favorite place
There is a reason we come back here year after year. The grounds are gorgeous, a combination of Caribbean and European, the ocean view is spectacular, and the restaurants are both superb, but most of all, the people that work here treat you as if they are truly happy to see you. We love being just steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Eagle Beach. The entire staff always has a kind word and a smile, even if they are just passing by. Our favorite, of course, is Mayra, the best concierge we've come across in our extensive travels. There is nothing that this amazing woman can't do, be it arranging dinner reservations, booking tours, or making recommendations on things one might like. There is ample parking, a huge grocery store nearby (Super Food), and easy access to the shops in downtown Oranjestad. We will definitely be returning next year!More
