Holiday Inn Resort Aruba - Beach Resort & Casino

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We stayed 5 nights at this resort. I rated average, some may rate it higher. It is clean Hotel. Staff is so so friendly. Has a very nice beach. But there is no staff coming around the beach or pool area offering to get you drinks or food. Anything that you want you have to go get it your self. There is plenty of Beach chairs and huts to use. They do not have Music playing at the beach or pool area. All the onsite restaurants all located in one building and not on the ground floor. other than the beach there was not a lot going on at this Hotel. Most everyone would leave at night going to other places in the area that had more night life. if you want a place to stay that you basically just sleep at and plan on going other places during day and night and is not costly this is your place. But if you are looking for a place that has lots to do and you don't want to leave the Hotel then this is not the place for you. We rented a car while we there and drove to lots of places site seeing and shopping. The one issue we had was getting face clothes. We did not have any and could not get them to bring them to us the last 2 days.

I loved the beautiful beach which was equipped with chairs and palapas at no extra charge! There was food and beverage service on the beach and around the pools! It was a great place to go and get away. The staff, for the most part, were very friendly! It was my first visit to Aruba and would recommend The Holiday Inn Resort to anyone looking for a safe, friendly, clean, and fun place to go and relax!

We visited in October 2013 (2 adults, 20 year old and 16 year old). The Holiday Inn was under renovations but we were never really inconvenienced. We loved the hotel - everyone was very friendly & the location both for beach and shopping/restaurants was excellent.

Palm Beach is absolutely lovely.

Our room was not one of the renovated rooms but it was fine...typical two double bed/queen room. We had a fantastic ocean view - I would not pay extra for ocean front as we didn't feel it was worth the extra expense. We just went to the beach instead!

You can put your name in the night before for the huts (palapas) on the beach. We had four people & were able to get two side-by-side each time we needed them.

I can't wait to go back - I would most definitely stay at the Holiday Inn. I'm excited to see how the renovations turned out.

Room Tip: Higher floor with an ocean view is the way to go....as to be closer to the ocean so you're away...

Holiday Inn, Aruba

Great location on gorgeous Palm beach. According to my standards, the resort grounds are a 5 star but the hotel rooms are about a 3 star, but clean & comfy. During our stay there were a few all-inclusive tourists and many that were not. So those who didn’t prepay for all-inclusive package left the grounds to venture out to local restaurants and bars. For inventory purposes even though we were all inclusive we had to sign a bill every time. Even for just a bottle of water! The 3 restaurants & 2 bars that were opened were good. The only thing I didn’t like was that there were charges on certain food selections, like lobster, food platters, etc. and not included in our all inclusive. There was Free WiFi at the Holiday Inn, which made up for the very little entertainment on the resort. The staff was very friendly, helpful & courteous. Thanks to bartender Edward who made amazing drinks for my daughter and I.

Holiday Inn corridor has stores & casino with comfortable furnished sitting areas. Easy walking distance to Mall across the street and only 7.5 miles to downtown with lots to see and enjoy. Take a small shuttle for $2/ bus for $2.30 or taxi for $11-15. We actually walked the distance and truly enjoyed the surroundings. It’s perfectly safe 24 /7. The island is only 20 mile (32 km long and 6 miles (10 km) across at its widest point, so it doesn’t take long to cover all attractions. Just money! Aruba imports everything and doesn’t manufacture much on the island, so expect to pay top dollar for things you may want.

I would recommend this hotel due to what you get for what you pay and location.

Room Tip: One of the three buildings have been renovated and the other two are eventually going to be done as...

On a very nice beach with adequate facilities, and great location with walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Rooms were a bit dated, but just fine, since you should be outside. Breakfast buffet was good--certainly convenient way to start the day.

Room Tip: Not sure I'd pay extra for ocean-facing, since you shouldn't be in the room much.

Great location right on Palm beach (which is very developed but nice) and close walking distance to the strip restaurants and tacky stores. Nice sized balconies on which to hang-out and read. My understanding is that normally there are lots of noisy kids running around (Aruba seems very kid friendly and safe) but during our stay (end of May) there were very few. I'm sure what it was like before the recent renovation but our room, the grounds and lobby were pretty attractive and well-maintained. The best thing was probably the very helpful and friendly staff members. Quick tip: renting a car or jeep isn't necessary but I'd get one for a day or two to explore the Island.
