Our flight had reached Amsterdam on time. There was a hotel which was already booked by me in advance. They had sent a taxi to receive us from the airport. The hotel wasn’t too far from the airport. It took some half an hour for the taxi driver to take us to the hotel. The hotel was located on one of the beach of Amsterdam in the Oranjestad Eagle area. All the major beaches of the city and other attractions like Eagle beach, Palm Beach, Bubali bird sanctuary were located close to our hotel.
The hotel looked fabulous in its design and architecture. There were all the modern amenities present inside the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort Aruba which includes a swimming pool, children’s pool, wifi services and many more recreational facilities. We were offered buffet lunch before our check in. The check in formalities of the hotel was completed in no time.
The hotel had a total of 72 rooms. IPOD docking stations are present in each of them and also had tea/coffee makers. The rooms were beautifully decorated with all the modern amenities one needs were present in the room. The bathrooms were also very spacious and has make up cum shaving mirrors, toiletries and hair dryers, etc. We were all very happy with the hotel cum resort.
The excitement to travel to Amsterdam started building in us. The long air travel had tired us a bit so went to take some short naps. In the evening we decided to go to one of the restaurants of the hotel and also tried its cafe. The restaurant of the hotel specialises in local and other European cuisines while its cafe shop served some of the best Lattes and Cappuccinos. We were refreshed by evening and were very eager to go out and explore the city of Amsterdam.
There were many places which were shortlisted by us for the travel. The first place which we decided to visit was one of the famous art centre and exhibition halls of the country known by the name of the hermitage. It is a cultural and exhibition centre which was established in the year 2004.
