My wife and I have just returned to the US after spending two weeks at the
Amsterdam Manor. This is our sixth trip to Aruba and I assure you, I will
never stay anyplace except at the AM again!!
The one bedroom suite was wonderful, huge amount of room for two people (as
my wife gets up much earlier than I, worked great!!). We also loved the
privacy (including the great recessed "patio" area where we could drink
coffee and wake up), the friendly staff, the excellent service, and the
uncrowded pool and beach areas. Having stayed at several different other hotels on our previous trips,
let me assure you that not having to get up at 6:30 am to
reserve pool or beach chairs, and not having to hear someone screaming
through a bullhorn to "play volleyball!" was just a delightful and relaxing
You guys are just great and we are telling our travel agent and other
Arubaphiles that the Amsterdam Manor is absolutely the best!!

We spent two weeks at the Amsterdam Manor (myself,my husband and our 8-year old son) and enjoyed every second. Lovely service,and such a quiet place. I agree with others on this site - the beach is the best,and not nearly as crowded as at the other hotels. We will be back!
We spent our 10th wedding anniversary at the Amsterdam Manor. This was our first time to Aruba and we loved every minute of it! We stayed in one of the Honeymoon Suites to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary, and loved the hotel and its prime location along Eagle Beach. We visited the other hotels along Palm Beach but found them to be too crowded and we much preferred Eagle Beach and especially the shade hut to guest ratio at Amsterdam Manor as we never had to compete to get a good spot on the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere at the Amsterdam Manor is I believe second to none on the island. The combination of the friendly staff (including Filo who makes a great drink), beautiful architectural features of the hotel, and prime beach access in a more secluded setting make the Amsterdam Manor the ideal couples location. We already are day dreaming about the day we will return. Our best to everyone at the Amsterdam Manor!
I am retired and now spend 3 months in Aruba staying at the Amsterdam Manor. Prior to retiring I spent every Christmas & New Years there since it opened in 1990. It is a quiet charming hotel which never feels crowded even when it is fully occupied. It has a beautiful beach with enough shelters and chairs that guests do not feel they have to get down at 7:00 to get a spot. There is a very good mix of guests from Europe and North America (I am Canadian) and a lot of them come back year after year. Over the years I have talked to many people staying at the hotel. With very few exceptions, everyone is extremely happy that they chose Amsterdam Manor. The hotel suits young families, middle aged+ people and even honeymooners. I am seeing more of the latter there all the time. This is my first trip report and I really should have done it sooner because Amsterdam Manor is truly a special place. The managment and staff are outstanding and you won't find better or warmer service anywhere on the island.
My husband and I had a wonderful 30th Anniversary at the Amsterdam Manor. It was the perfect location. The beach was never crowded. The bus was an easy way to get around to town or to the high rise area. Very quaint surroundings and just a few steps to the beach. We hope to visit Aruba and stay at Amsterdam Manor again in a few years!
Het is wat laat maar we hebben een super week gehad (eind Oktober.) alles was top. Nu komen we weer naar Aruba op 6 Mei maar helaas jullie zaten volgens de touropperator helemaal vol dus we gaan nu naar een ander goed hotel maar ik kom zeker een cocktailtje drinken bij Filo of misschien wel 2 dat weet ik nu nog niet. Groetjes Bas en Monique.
Na 10 jaar dan eindelijk toch terug in Amsterdam Manor. Lang naar uitgekeken dus en desondanks geen greintje teleurstelling; integendeel, we hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad en ondanks het in het begin haperende weer genoten van het resort. De heerlijke ligging, het vriendelijke en behulpzame personeel en de goede keuken van Mango?s hebben er een feest van gemaakt.
Hopelijk tot weerziens!
Hartelijke groeten uit Holland voor iedereen.
we came on holiday to the Amsterdam Manor in August 2004 and enjoyed it so much we have booked to come back this summer!
The Amsterdam Manor is in a great location, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food at Mango's was outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay in Aruba and having travelled around the island can't imagine a better place to stay.
We are looking forward to another wonderful holiday in July 2005.

Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort is de absolute top!!!
Het personeel is vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
Wij komen hier sinds 1997 en het verveelt ons nog steeds niet. Op dit resort voel je je niet een toerist met een kamernummer maar een gast. De persoonlijke kontakten met het management en de gastvrijheid geeft het gevoel dat je thuis bent. One happy Island. Voor ons is Amsterdam Manor nummer 1!!!!!!
Our first time staying at this hotel in the 23 years that we've been going to Aruba - wish we would have stayed here earlier!! What a wonder, wonderful hotel!! Rooms and grounds are beautiful! Staff is kind and friendly! Location is great - beach is great!
We'll be staying here again next year for sure.
Filo the bartender ROCKS!!
