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.

The windmill is a windmill which okay but nothing special but right in front of it is Aruhiba the only handmade cigar factory on Aruba.

Junk all around the area by the old mill. Wouldn't you think that with all the tourist money pouring into aruba, they could clean up around there. After all, it is an historic site. Used to be nice.

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.
