Standard resort right across the street from beautiful Eagle Beach. Room was very comfortable, good AC and clean. Restaurants were decent. Ate lunch 2x at "Passions"- very good but beware of birds and insects flying everywhere throughout your lunch. Had breakfast only one morning at "Mangos", and was extremely disappointed. We must have gotten there after the rush (around 10 am) and there was barely anything left and no one working the omelette station. Pretty much paid almost $15 pp for boiled eggs and toast. Ordered room service one night and it was tasty, but not many options. Glad we didn't do all inclusive. Service was a hit or miss- remember you're on Aruba so they do go at a much slower pace than back in the US. Eagle beach is definitely much nicer than Palm beach. One of the main reasons why we chose this location. No casino on resort but there is one right next door at the neighboring resort-4 min walk. Rented a jeep one day. Best way to see the island, but you can probably see the whole island in one day so not worth renting it more than that. Downtown Oranjestad had a nice mall, many restaurants and shops, so went there a lot to eat and walk around when we needed a break from the beach. Overall, would probably stay at Amsterdam Manor again, but definitely will stay on Eagle Beach. If you don't want to stay at one of those commercial type-high rise hotels on Palm beach, and prefer something a little more Lowkey,basic and access to a beautiful beach, then stay here!

Thank you for your valued feedback and glad that you would choose our hotel again based on your experiences. Lunch is served open-air and therefore available for not only living souls like us, but also the fauna of our beautiful island. My apologies regarding your breakfast experience. We display over 50 food and beverage items daily and we are happy that we receive many compliments about the array of fresh products. Our room service is indeed narrow in choices, since all our rooms have kitchenettes and thus for most guests not an option. Room service for your information is not part of our All Inclusive. Concerning our All Inclusive program, this is one of the most exclusive ones on Aruba. You can choose from 3 restaurants, table service and eat a la carte from our exquisite menus for lunch and dinner. A big difference from the regular hotels were you need to stand in line of buffets with restricted food options.
We hope to see you again in the future and you always can reach us at the Amsterdam Manor and ask for our F&B Manager.
