In general, although is near the airport, I think it is quite far from the City Center and the most visited beaches... it depends on what you want it for. The breakfast was good, the rooms were clean and comfy. The pool although small is great to have a relaxing time.

The staff there is awesome and friendly. The bartenders are the best. The staff did the best they could with what they had. Clean hotel. Need speakers and a sound system. No night activities in the hotel or bar. Karaoke? videos? Computer room needs a better AC. Don't close the door or it turns into a sauna. Had some issues... More

Been here now for a week. Very pleasant out of season atmosphere, quiet really but relaxing if that's what you are after. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and taken care of regularly. Nice wee pool and area to Sunbathe. Bring insect repellent. Mosquitoes after dark love feasting on my peely wally skin. (In English.....white pale...

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 The rooms are old and outdated and very simple.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
