Aruba One Happy Island

I enjoyed my stay at the Mill Resort although they were doing renovations it didn't affect my stay at all. The staff was exceptional and friendly. The room was pretty and the a/c was cold. I enjoyed my large tub for a warm bath and the hot shower. I really enjoyed my stay in Aruba. I was able to tour the island, go snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, horse back riding and enjoy some delicious dinners. I loved my Aruba vacation.

Won’t be back

I had a unpleasant introduction to the hotel. Got on the plane, no problem. Got on the bus, no problem. Got to the hotel PROBLEMS!!!! They couldn’t find my reservation. I showed them all of my conformation emails and they didn’t care. I had to stand in the lobby and continuesly call cheap Caribbean. The hotels suggestion was to pay for another room and they will refund my money when they got confirmation. I asked them were they crazy then I told them that I had nothing but time. And 3 hours later I got through to cc and I got my room!!! Turns out, it was the hotels fault. They emailed me a copy of the confirmation that they sent to the mill. And there is active construction going on at the hotel. You hear banging early in the morning. There are ladders, forklifts, tools, and workers all over the place. Lastly, if you are at in the restaurant the food is good. But, they have 2 menues. What do I mean by this? Well everyday that I was there the breakfast menu was the same including the prices($25) for the very limit breakfast buffet. But, on the last day the hostess brought us a different menu. On your last day it seems like the buffet goes down to $13. Same menu different prices. So if you eat at their restaurant ask for the last day menu. I asked the hostess why do the prices change on the last day and she kept stumbling over her words.

THE WORST

The resort was a definite let down. the only good thing about it was it was in close proximity to the tourist area. besides that. the rooms were horrible. Hard beds, dirty couches and shower, I even had to shower with my shoes on. The hotel was supposedly under renovation and I had a renovated room. still very under impressed. I had withed I stayed at the Holiday Inn express or Hilton. Cheap Caribbean let me down BIG TIME. MEALS ARE NOT INCLUDED. Staff there was rude. My check in was subpar. I was given the wrong room then after having to complain at 2AM they finally fixed it and called it an upgrade (no this is what I booked). The place looked like an old run down motel especially compared to the hotels around. I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN.

Affordable Basic Accomodations

If a clean inexpensive room is your priority then choose The Mill.We spent maybe 8-9 H a day in our room so we were not concerned about the outdated appearance.It is very very basic but it is located in the hi rise district of Aruba.Walking distance from eating & shopping.Has no ATM on property,closest is The Riu
