My wife, 9 months old and I had a great time at this hotel. Our little one loved the kiddie pool and even though there were plenty of kids in the hotel, it was never crowded and always clean. The beach is just across the street and it is absolutely gorgeous. We were always able to get lounge chairs and found a shady area to relax, I gave this hotel 4 stars because the food at the one restaurant available for lunch was not that great. The staff was nice but not efficient. The casino was pretty small and it did not have a lot of choices.
I can't think of anything I did not like.
1-bedroom unit and amenities were more than adequate and clean. Infinity pool needs some maintenance. Tiles along side are falling off. Contaminated water at the end of our stay make a lot of people sick and staff was not forthright in dealing with it. As of this writing, they're still handing out bottled water. Not sure they handled this emergency well at all! Too bad.....
Large facility and parking lot. Though not cheap it was the best available price I could find during the high ''easter time" season. Big reception counter but only one clerk and a relatively long waiting line at the time of my check-out. Bed was made but room had not been cleaned.
When it says all inclusive it was truly all inclusive, you could book a trip to this hotel, and not spend another dime the entire trip if you wanted. One of the best resorts I've ever stayed in. The pool closed at 7pm daily, which was very strange to me, I've never stayed anywhere that the pool closed so early every night, and most resorts let their pool stay open 24 hours. And due to the alcohol being free there isn't a huge selection of brands to choose from, but it was still a great place.
Small resort, very accessible to the beach. Friendly staff, good food and drinks on the premises. This is our second visit. We renewed our wedding vows on the beach and this was the perfect spot.
Friendly staff, quiet atmosphere, excellent beach, nice beach bar, excellent restaurant on the beach, efficiency rooms so we could have breakfast/lunch/snacks/drinks in the room, grocery store only a short walk away Nothing at all!
Beach was steps from the front of the hotel and there was always an umbrella, beach chairs, and towels ready for us. The happy hours were great. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and we loved that the rooms had kitchens so you could grab groceries for the Super Food down the street. Such a nice addition. There is also a mini market at the hotel in case you need something quickly. More families than I had expected. The pool was used by children exclusively. The location has ups and downs - there is nothing to the north until the high rises so you are a bit isolated. It is nice because it isn't super crowded and it is intimate, but it also means you have to travel a bit to get to other restaurants and activities.
The good point was the location of the hotel,very close to the sandy beach. I did not like the service at all (very poor service at the beach bar, very slow service at the beach restaurant) they charged my credit card with the whole amount for the room on the day of the reservation, I.E. well in advance of check-in date (this is not a common practice for hotels) and tryed to make me pay additional charges when we arrived. I strongly complained and they admitted that they were wrong. No extra applied finally.
We had an amazing time at Amsterdam Manor the rooms were clean and the staff was very accommodating. The beach was the highlight. It never gets too crowded and it so beautiful. Food was overpriced it wasn't that delicious
The location is fantastic and also the small kitchen at the room helps a lot specially when you have kids. The value for money. I paid too much for the room I've got. The rooms close to the recepcion ( the "C"blocks) are bad compared to the rest. Also the amount of taxes paid in the end are very high. So be careful with that cause sometimes the daily rates are unreal.
Very personal and excellent service Not at all
The staff was friendly and remembered us during our stay. The room was comfortable and well equipped. There were many activities on premise which kept us busy, and the private island was beautiful. We enjoyed a couples massage and dinner for two package which was excellent. The location was right at a shopping mall and plaza with plenty to do, but it was further away from the main hotel area where the nightlife and many of our friends were staying. Taxi trips to meet our friends or go out started to add up over our stay.
"Island View" does not mean a view of the private island. The front desk told me this means an island view as in Aruba is and island and you can view it.
There was nothing I did not like! Love love love the private island!!!!! Very contemporary hotel . Love it!!! Nothing
The location is excellent, and access to activities through the city was very simple. Staff is very courteous, rooms were well maintained and clean. The pool area had DJ playing so loud that it was hindersome in the room in the afternoon and early evening. Pool is rather small and not enough places to relax during early evening hours. The rooms were pricey for the amenities provided. Staying at the Marriott on the west side of the island offers more amenities, larger room and less cost. But after all, it IS all about location, location, location, and the Rennaissance has it!
The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need.
Wait staff was slow and not attentive at the bar at the hotel.
Great location in the heart of Oranjastad. Easy walk to great restaurants. Very clean. The staff were wonderful, especially Berlinda who helped us with restaurant reservations. There is no real beach unless you ferry out to the private island. The island is pretty, but windy. There were no beach chairs available and even more limited if you wanted one in the shade. At the Marina, there is a modest sized pool but no beach chairs available in the mid afternoon. There is music playing all day, so there is no place in the resort for peace and quiet except your room. The room was modest sized, but a bit dated. It was quite expensive.
Relaxing,great vieuw, romantic, nice hotel, great entertaiment,easy to find, all of all it was a great hotel didn't expect it was that nice They way you have to deal with the inventory form the staff should tell about it or take the inventory with the guest for the mis understanding because there was no superviser when you needed
This hotel is located as the first one in the zone of "High Rise Hotels" meaning that this zone contains the high buildings, being this spectacular because you have a wonderful view of the nicest ocean I've ever seen. I reccommend it widely.
The computer system had gone out the day before we left. We were told we could not check out because they were doing their audit. Also we asked for a wake-up call, which we never recieved.
I liked the price, but reaching to the leisure facilities is not easy. Reception lobby is quite far away from the hotel, actually there are from another DIVI resort
The beach was fantastic, the pools & facilities were very comfortable. The shuttle was not very availble to get around (versus as adverstised)
The staff was very friendly. The cleanliness of the hotel overall was mediocre.
The staff was friendly. Air conditioner leaked on the tile floor that made everything slick. Called for maintenance the first day, he said it was fixed, but it still leaked. He used our pool towel to soak up the water. Tried to get it replaced the next day at the front desk, they had to make several calls to confirm our story.
The hotel was walking distance from the beach but was behind a road and and entire hotel complex from the beach. The hotel only has free wifi near the restaurant. People seemed to gather outside the restaurant for free wifi. The house keeping was also extremely inconsistent. The number and type of towels varied from day-to-day. We also didn't have toiletries or glasses in the room until day three. The room also had to remain fairly air conditioned to prevent substantial condensation which wouldn't have been an issue except the blankets on the bed were not sufficient in that condition. Finally, the hotel had no record of the reservation I had made through kayak and even when presented with confirmation information were reluctant to help resolve the issue. Ultimately ended up having to leverag kayak to resolve but ended up in a king bed when we had originally booked doubles.
Walkable to everything (even though we still had a car and drive lots). Easy to walk to to breakfast/dinner everyday. We didn't reserve a renovated King room but were given it at no cost. I didn't have much staff interaction but was impressed with them when I did. I also liked to see how thoroughly the pool was cleaned daily. It's an older resort but I feel like they've spent money updating the important things. Incredible value for what we paid. Very, very cold AC in the room. Unfortunately there was an international youth baseball tournament in Aruba the same week we were there. Just about every rowdy kid was staying at the Mill. I don't fault the Mill. They apologized for the Inconvience and did what they could to seperate us from them.
Beautiful beach and very laid back resort. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere, not wall-to-wall people like the larger resorts. French Steakhouse restaurant on the premises is excellent. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Room was adequate, although a little tired. Spa was wonderful. Giorgios Italian restaurant was not good. Service was very slow and they obviously need someone who knows how to cook good Italian food if they are going to call themselves an Italian restaurant.
The beach at Manchebo was the most beautiful beach I have been to. The sand was so soft, and the water was clean and clear. My fiance and I got a massage at the spa- a wonderful experience that I would reccomend everyone do. Overall- a GREAT place to go for a relaxing vacation.
The restaurants are okay. Can´t be a 4-star!! I´d classify it as a 2-star, maximum. And for that price, you can really go for something way better. Didn´t like it all. The entire hotel is old, the rooms are old-looking, dirty walls and the beds are not very comfortable. Urgently needs remodeling.
great place peaceful
In bad need of refurbishment.Tired facilities and complacent staff.
Manchebo sits on a large beach with plenty of chairs/huts per the amount of people staying at the resort. I was able to walk up at noon, and pick out a spot on the frontline. It was a decent walk to the water, but nothing terrible. Never used the pool, but it looked great. Best happy hour on the island! 2 for 1 drinks from 4 to 6. Very quite resort. They literally ran out of shampoo at the resort. Also, while we had a garden view room, the workers hung out in that area occasionally, leaving us little to no privacy. Thankfully, we didn't mind that too much, as we hardly were in our room for most of the day.
Staff very friendly
beach is direct out of the hotel Personel, service, very slow, old hotel, looks bad, if the price is lower i would recommend it, because it's next to the beach
Very relaxing, rooms quiet, peaceful nice atmosfere.
My wife and I loved it. Clean, good food, friendly staff, no mildew.
The location is excelent. The beach is very beautiful. The swimming pools are very good. The rooms are good. There are things to do and eat at night near the Hotel. The Holiday Inn charged me 8% more than expect. According to the booking.com, the Service charge was included and the 19.08 % Tax was not included. But the Holiday Inn charged in this way: Accomodation 139,30 + Room Service Charge 17,40 + Goverment Room Tax 12,01 + Ahata Fee 3,44 + Energy Charge 5,95 + Samba 1,00. !!! 8% more than expected. !!! Should be 663,51, They charged 715,40.
Clean room, nice facility Electric charge of $5.95 per day??
Location was perfect, malls and restaurants right in front and the Beach is beautiful! Dont have microwave in the room
