Dont get turned away because its a "Holiday Inn". This hotel is amazing. Very beautiful, clean and the hotel staff is very helpful and polite. I was there for 6 days 5 nights. and everyone from the front desk staff to the housekeepers are very warming and always smiling. the hotel is right off the beach. make sure you request a beach view, amazing sunsets. Right in the heart of the hotel scene, short cab ride to downtown markets. I would rent a car, much cheaper than the cab rides. when i do return i will be staying there again.

Room Tip: ther only tip i would say is request a beach view.

Just returned from the HI, we asked for and got an Ocean View Room (6734), very nice room with a superb view, you can watch the infamous sunset each evening from your balcony prior to going out for dinner.
The HI has got a great location on the beach with shopping just across the street, together with some restaurants. The beach and pool areas are very clean, not sure about having to queue for a palapa for the next day though, there must be another way of doing it, but I guess the current system works and the number of people who return year after year must enjoy it all.
We only took breakfast once in Corals, a bit staff canteen feel to it and ate out each evening.
The public areas are quite pleasant, the lobby is ideal to escape the mighty mid day sun and do some people watching ! The few shops inside of the hotel cover quite a number of items required on holiday. I was disappointed with the casino, it is a part that perhaps missed out on the recent renovations or perhaps we had been spoiled by the Carnival Casino at the Renaissance on Curacao a few days earlier ?
All in all a typical HI property with nice staff, good location and blue skies as a bonus.

Room Tip: A high Ocean View Room

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Aruba in May 2014 with two other couples. We had an ocean front room with a balcony on the fourth floor. The room was very clean and the view was gorgeous. The hotel staff were all courteous and friendly. Be careful what room you get because some can overlook the front of the building and you won't have any beach view. We had the package that included the buffet breakfast. The breakfast had plenty of food to choose from and the service was exceptional. One person from our group did wait in line every day at 3:00 to reserve our hut, although I don't think it was necessary at this time of year as there were enough huts available. The pools were clean and there were always plenty of available chairs. The grounds are not as lush and beautiful as they are at some of the other hotels, but the advantage is that you are directly on the beach and don't walk through the gardens to get to the beach. I would certainly stay at the Holiday Inn again.

Room Tip: If you stay in the first floor beach front rooms you will have people walking by you all day as you sit on your patio. Just depends if you like privacy or not. Also, some of the rooms overlook the front of the building and don't have a beach view, be sure to check which room you are getting.

This was our first time in Aruba and the Holiday in did not disappoint! We are a Canadian couple and have traveled to Mexico, Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic All Inclusives and recently stayed in many hotels and b&b's in Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, Santorini and Athens, so I feel that i can give a well rounded, honest opinion.
The Holiday Inn was the most affordable option on this beautiful island and we had heard good reviews from friends who had recently visited this hotel. They also advised us to request a room in the renovated tower.
The hotel lobby, beach, pools, bar and seaside restaurant were fantastic! The food was the best we've had at an all inclusive in the Caribbean.
I loved that we could reserve a palapas the day before. May is considered low season so we never had to wait more than a few minutes.
The two buffets were pretty good, it was worth it to get the all inclusive. We still went out for a few meals and overall didn't spend as much as we would have had we not had the AI.
Our room in the seaside tower was more than adequate! I like the glass shower enclosure and backlit mirror in the bathroom.
The resort was a good size, not too big and great location across from a shopping area.
I Dont understand the negative reviews! This hotel is a holiday inn, not a massive beach resort like a Riu Palace or Bahia Principe, so maybe some peoples expectations are unrealistic.
