It was within walking distance form my hotel so I figured I would go check it out. It was neat to see but was a little disappointed with what was around it. Thought there may be better shopping/restaurants there. Still worth goign to check out and snap a pic or 2.

The Windmill is pretty run down and was not open when we visited (10 AM). We ate pancakes there but they were underwhelming. The entire place looks to be a nighttime attraction with a bar and music/dancing stages.

It was nice to see but nothing special. Several of the buildings around it were under construction, and some were obviously night spots (like the one with the mechanical bull)... so maybe it would be better visited by night. It does make a nice photo op.

No trip to Aruba is complete without a visit to the Old Dutch Windmill. All your friends saw it, now it's your turn. Just remember, it's a windmill. Not the Taj Mahal.

I was sure I'd see a mill moving almost with tulips or flowers in the Dutch style, and upon arrival I found something old, almost abandoned and ugly. I do not recommend for anything going there.

We took so many pictures of the windmill. This is a good place for a photo opIt is a night club from 10 am until 6 am. We did not go to the night club. We stayed in the hotel behind it, The Mill Resort and Suites.

I am reposting the following review as the original was for the incorrect location of the Diana's I reviewed. An amazingly good find for breakfast - about 30 varieties of pancakes and BK sandwiches. Excellent location near the high rise hotels in the Palm Beach area (just look for the windmill). Outdoor eating, very Dutch and pancakes that are about... More

My wife and I are regular visitors to the family friendly Mill Resort in Aruba, The wind mill is due for a paint job, but is still great for a photo shot. From the Mill the beaches are within walking distance, and the high rise hotels and casino's are literally across the street. Some of the best restaurants, night clubs,... More

The Mill is open basically all night and the only place to party until the sun comes up in Aruba. I was hipped to it by some friends that live on the island and had a great time.
