“Wedding Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Everything from check-in to check-out went great. This property has the best beach location in Aruba. Excellent value for the money. My wife and I had a most relaxing and enjoyable trip. Lunch and happy hour were very good

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get an ocean front higher floor room in the middle tower. excellent views...

My experience here was great! They had a great beach and their staff was so great they made our vacation memorable. I would have given it 5 stars but was disappointed most of their restaurants featured buffets and I don't care for this. However, just out the front door we found Garden Fresh, Scala and Le Bistro which had great food at a reasonable price. Very smooth check in/out. If you have gold Priority points you get your own chickee hut on the beach for the week.

Best location across from local market and restaurants. The hotel restaurants have limited menu. Staff not the most friendly and accommodating. They need to have a better system re the huts. Awesome location.

This was not our 1st choice, but it worked out good. Lobby is good. 3 swimming pools good. Tikki bar view good. Food not whole lot of options for vegetarians. I would definitely not buy all inclusive package. It is not worth it, for the same money you can get more options outside the hotel. Everything is walking distance. You have options for Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Thai, middle eastern and all kind of American fast food available.
Beach is good.
Drinks/cocktails not impressed.
Rooms are very small. We stayed in sea tower got ocean view it was worth it. My family experienced lot of Moldy smell.
Activity outside on the beach plenty of vendors they are cheaper and willing to make deals. I had no issues with them.
I used vendor on the holiday inn beach. His name is George and his ex name sharabbi they hooked me up with parasailing, renting car and the driver (Ricky), took one day trip took us to awesome places baby beach, gold mining area, natural pool etc with our time. Important much cheaper than other big commercial companies. Half the price. Also according to our time table.
Renting umbrella chair good luck they have weird system, standing in line by 4pm people who book it don't even use it.
Hotel staff was ok depends on who u get. Some where helpfully, others were why r u bothering me.

Room Tip: Ocean view

I have been to Aruba many times without the kids. This time we decided to take the kids and stay at the Holiday Inn Aruba! Best decision we made, kids eat free!! Kids club was great for the kids and Kenia a kid counselor went above and beyond for my kids! She was amazing and my kids loved her! The hotel was so clean, the beach and pool were beautiful! The food was very good and my kids loved the dinner theme nights!! Location of hotel was perfect and Brenda the manager was very much a part of the hotel! Always around, walking about the hotel, easy to talk to. I just kept telling her how much I loved the resort!! Can't wait to go back! An absolute must! Great with or without kids!

We stay at HI Aruba 4/7-4/14.

We travelled with our 2 boys, ages 4 and 6. We had stayed here back in 2008 and 2011 as well.

The updates look great!! I requested a lower level floor prior to arrival and they had a second room floor ready upon our arrival.

We spent a lot of time at the "kids" pool, which was great to relax in (with a balashi in hand) and watch the kids swim and play.

I have nothing but great things to say about the Kids Club!!!!! Absolutely wonderful. My children, Ethan and Michael, couldn't wait to go back every day. They would spend a couple hours in the morning and in the afternoon. We could go in any time and check on them and they were always happy!!

I didn't have the issue with the palapas as I didn't feel it was necessary to line up with the crowd at 2:30pm daily for a 4pm giveaway. There is enough shad and sun where you can move beach chairs easily too. It would be nice if the whole system was done away with and nobody was allowed to save any seats... Just come and go as you please. There are so many reserved chairs that no one sits in for more than a couple hours.

Check in was super easy and we were greeted with smiles, as I was all smiles as well. Check out was super simple as well, as we had an early flight and had to leave at 6am.

Everything was super. Just a true relaxing, easy family vacation!!

Stayed April 2015

Just celebrated my 60th Birthday in Aruba. Born April fool's day. No joke!

My wife said anywhere I said Holiday Inn Aruba.

We are Honorary visitors. Had our picture taken at the Holiday Inn. Will treasure that for ever
.
We were pleasantly surprised by all the upgrades. The new garden area the second pool and cabana areas
reinforce that this is the best beach and location on Palm Beach!
Conrad's to Alvero for such a great job!!!!

Its always like going home. The staff s the best " Hi to Brenda, Anthony and Edward"

Thanks also to George was nice talking to you.

Would highly recommend Holiday inn for anyone who would like to have a wonderful time in Aruba!
