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.

Nice low-rise hotel right opposite the best beach in Aruba
We chose this hotel to be away from the high-rise hotel strip because we wanted a quieter, more relaxed beach vacation. The hotel is nice. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The staff are friendly. The beach is spectacular! The sand is soft and white, the water turquoise and just the right temperature.Hotel guests enjoy free beach chairs with nice foam mattresses that also float. Food options within walking distance are limited. The hotel has a restaurant on the premises which is kind of expensive, and a fancy, quite expensive restaurant on the beach. There's also a beach bar that serves lunch. There are a few other restaurants in near walking distance but we didn't try them out. The one complaint we have, and it's an annoying one, is that a service fee of 15% is automatically added to every food food item ordered from the bars or restaurants. And while I would somewhat begrudgingly accept this if it were an automatic 15% tip for you waiter, apparently, that 15% does not go to the waiters who served you. It gets distributed to the entire hotel staff. Every waiter and barman makes sure to tell you that that is NOT their tip. If you want to reward a waiter for good service, you need to pay extra on top of the 15%. So effectively the hotel is making you unwittingly pay the entire hotel service staff. This is *in addition* to a service charge that is part of your booking fees. So it is basically a hidden fee, and I must say I found this practice quite sleazy. If you want to charge more in order to pay your staff, do it openly and up front, as part of the overall room fees. Don't make it look like the hotel is less expensive than it is, and then covertly charge more money.More
Wonderful vacation spot
My husband and I stayed at Amsterdam Manor for 6 nights. Once we arrived, Julio checked us in and we found out we had been upgraded from a King room suite to a 2 bedroom ocean front suite. We were on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the ocean (from across the road - I've seen negative reviews about being across the street - but BELIEVE me -that is NOT a problem). We stayed in room 201. It was perfect.The beds were comfortable and bathroom very nice. The kitchen offers microwave, gas stove, large refrigerator, pots/pans, dishes, silverware. There is no oven. Eagle Beach is beautiful. The water was clear and refreshing after being in the sun. You can get beach towels and a mat for your lounger at the beach and we never had a problem finding chairs and umbrella on the beach or at the pool. We went to the pool most days in the afternoon after spending most of the morning and early afternoon at the beach. The pool was never crowded. We bought groceries from Super Foods grocery store a short walk from the hotel and ate our breakfast and lunch in the room. You need to take a bag with you or buy one from the grocery store. You pack your own bag - they don't do plastic - and the bags are almost $4 each. We had our dinners out every night. One night we ate at Mangos - one of the restaurants on site. It was excellent. We attended the Happy Hour from 5-6 a couple of times at the bar by the pool. Everyone that works at this resort is friendly and helpful. Patrick - the concierge was very helpful in setting us up for some island tours. We went on the Catamaran Snorkeling trip and Jeep Tour. Both were excellent trips (I'll write separate reviews for them on their page) We liked the Palm Beach area for restaurants more so than downtown Oranjestad. Both places had many shopping stores. We got around from place to place using the bus. It was $5.20 for 2 each way. Sunday is a little harder to get around - bus service is every hour instead of 15 min. and a lot stores and restaurants are closed on Sunday. If we ever come back to Aruba we will definitely stay here again!More
Location, location, location
This boutique hotel is located just steps from the #1 beach in Aruba, Eagle Beach. The hotel has free chairs & cabanas righr on the beach, where there is also a bar and restaurant. The hotel is a bit older, but well maintained. We had a 1br suite with small kitchen, which came in quite handy. All rooms are very close to nice pool and great views of the ocean. The staff is professional, but not overly friendly. It could be culture, but we would have liked a bit more warmth. Our only issue was a broken coffee machine, which took all week to replace, despite repeated requests. Alternative was $3 coffee at restaurant!More
Very nice villa hotel (or apptmt suites) across beautiful Eagle Beach
We had a 2 BR apptmt with full kitchen and patio 👀 out to the pool / beach. The interior is beautifully decorated. The AC was a bit cold and loud and we couldn't control the temp well even though we set it to warm temp, the air was still cold. So if you like it cool, that AC is perfect. Right outside the condos is a small pool, and across the street a beautiful beach with towel service and bars and restaurant right by the beach. Food is pricey but very good. Bus stop right across the hotel between the pool and the beach. 2.60$ one way pp to go up to "downtown" aka high rise area. Bus comes roughly every 20min. We did that daily, no need to waste money for a taxi. Within 15min walking distance is a grocery store so we went grocery shopping once and had food in the kitchen for our stay. Not much action going on here in the evening at all but downtown is just 10min bus ride away so if you like it a bit more secluded and calm, this is a beautiful place. More
Just had a week at this hotel, rooms beautiful and fully equipped. Lovely decorated even comes with remote mood lighting. Hotel staff very welcoming and friendly. Food was first class apart from breakfast could do with a change of foods your limited and it's a little bland it's missing tomatoes, beans or mushrooms. Al a carte menu first class along with themed dining. The bar in the beach belonging to the hotel is really nice and lunch time snacks tasty. Free beach towels and sunbeds on the beach a bonus along with free wifi, safe and air con. Would recommend this place top notch .More
