Not what we expected.

To be honest we were surprised to see this beautiful windmill so run down. We have been to Holland several times & expected this to be as nicely restored as the windmills there... read more

It's worth a stop just to appreciate a building that was originally built in 1804 and transported to Aruba in 1960. You cannot go into the building (during the day at least), but it's a good spot to get some unique architectural photos

We saw this while driving back to our hotel one day and decided to stop and take a look. We were there only for a few minutes to shoot a couple of pictures and read the history of the windmill which was pretty interesting. Worth the stop.

The photo above looks nothing like what we saw! It is in dire need of repair. The outside was unkept and was surrounded by some unkept bars....

Too bad you can't go up or inside the windmill to check it out. There is a bar and a pancake restaurant (very good) but other than that, not much to do ith the actual mill other than look at it.

It's a Windmill, it was pretty! We took a bus ride there and it was fine. It's not real any big shakes, but it made our wives happy. You can also rent ATV;s to go see it. The water on that side of the Island is beautiful.

Didn´t realize that the windmill was a attraction in it self. You have a restaurant, a pancake house and a hotel right next to it. You can also rent a car at Avis car rental close to the mill. The mill it self needs to be refurbished, the paint has seen better days.
