This tourist attractions needs some tender care! I realize it is not open other than in the evening as a night club, but it is too bad it isn't something more interesting. If you come to Aruba, you still will want to see it.

Fun place to go and see. It is a nightclub at night, but we went and took pictures and read up on it. It was very different. We enjoyed going. It is free too.

If you are sightseeing, this is a big windmill, not much else. Don't go out of your way. Late at night, this place becomes a busy nightclub for 21 and over. If that's your scene, then check it out. Just for sightseeing, not worth a detour.

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.
