We only stayed one night as our flight was cancelled and needed a place close to the airport. Bar area was noticed right away by reception and was pretty loud. Our room was across the pool (which looked nice), but is also across from the bar, so we heard music until 2am. You can also hear vehicles speeding up and... More

Admittedly it was a very long time ago, but we were there in 2003 for a business trip - and extended it by staying at the somewhat less luxurious - than the resort we'd been at - Talk of the Town. However, in an odd sort of way I enjoyed Talk of the Town just as much. The big pool... More

We booked one night before our condo became available to check in for the week. TOTT was highly rated on trip advisor. The hotel is over rated. The hotel's location is close to the end of the runway at the airport so there is jet noise until midnight. The rooms are small and furnishings are poor grade quality. The pool... More

The hotel itself is a mixed bag. Nice pool area for the price. The rooms are old and outdated and very simple. The main problem with this hotel is how noisy it is. With the open-air party that is going on next door every night way past midnight (3am is my best guess) you just won't get any sleep. I... More

This review is long overdue. We got stuck in Aruba overnight after returning from a Bonaire dive vacation over the Christmas holidays. Given the fact that most hotels were overbooked, we were faced with the lowest priced hotel on multiple travel sites visited, being the HI Express at $679.00! Since I am a high mileage traveler on US Airways, they... More

This was a very nice, quiet, hotel within walking distance to the shops and casinos of Orangestad. The staff were VERY accommodating. I had a misunderstanding about the number of people staying in the room but they allowed the extra person at no charge. The pool was very nice with two hot tubs. The restaurant was very good. The rooms... More

We stayed here for 1 night this past weekend. A hidden gem. Room was clean and tidy, Great large shower. It has a very nice pool area where you can sit and have some food or drinks... One of the nice things is that it is not in the noisy tourist area. This is a place where you can sit... More

We stayed in the two bedroom suite and it was perfect. Hotel is close to everything, beach, downtown, airport, restaurants, bars and attractions. The staff is super friendly and make you feel welcomed and appreciated. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious. We also had dinner and the food was amazing. Rooms and all areas of the hotel were spotless.... More

I stayed here for one night on business. Lobby and pool area are simple but nice. Room was outdated, furniture old and in bad shape, specially in the bathroom. Cleanliness was dissapointing too, there was an old piece of gum in my bathtub. Area is away from most restaurants (there are a couple nearby), drugstores, grocery stores, etc. i got... More
