I cannot put into words how wonderful this resort is. Every day their staff goes above and beyond in trying to please their guests. For a tranquil beach vacation, this small clean up to date beach resort is surely for you. There are photos accompanying the review which show you how quiet the beach is at the Amsterdam Manor. One of the biggest complaints about Aruba's resorts are the shortage of palapas and the need to awaken at dawn to claim your shade. The resort was busy while we were there, hosting a wedding of 50 or so guests and every single day there were open palapas at any time of the day. Some days there were even the highly sought after front row shade palapas open in the middle of the afternoon!
People looking for activities and action will be bored to tears at this resort. It is just a bonus though that you are 5 minutes from the casinos and action on Palm Beach.
People who do not research the resort and do not know what to expect also say what a negative it is to have to cross a small road in order to reach the beach. From my review,
"My father has difficulty walking and found the Amsterdam Manor to be just the right size for getting around with his cane without having to resort to using a wheelchair. At the Amsterdam Manor the walk from our second story penthouse to our palapa on the beach was shorter than any room we have ever stayed in at a high rise hotel on Palm Beach."
