Great Location

Posted 30-Jun-2015
Pros: Proximity to beach
Cons: Pool hours
The hotel was perfectly located. Plenty of watersports on the beach and a mall across the street. Everything you need/want is within walking distance. The room was clean and the staff was great. The only negative I'd say is the pools close at 7:00pm.

Absolutely amazing hotel

Posted 30-Jun-2015
Pros: Rooms, beach, location, staff
Cons: I was charged for local calls from the hotel room (Even those when I heard signals only but was no response) - I thinks it is not nice.
Location: Swim, excursions, chill, relax, had greatest tstay in you life.
I loved that hotel a lot! A bsolutely terrific stay. Rooms was amazing, bed - super comfy. Facilities on the beach make your saty very pleasant. Very delicious breakfast, tasty hamburgers at the bar. Amazing location. I could not imagine a better place to stay. Wi-fi is EVERYWHERE on the territory.

Aruba, Palm Beach, Holiday Inn

Posted 30-Jun-2015
Pros: Location! Reasonable cost. On the beach. Many dining choices right across the street. A lot of water sports operations up and down the beach.
Cons: The Holiday Inn's room furnishings are unspectacular at best. I didn't care though. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
Location: Great! One of the best locations in Aruba (Occidental, Hyatt, Playa Linda and the Radisson are also on this stretch).
June 2015 Great time! Really cannot get a much better location. On the beach and a vast array of shopping, dining options across the street.

Ocean Front

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: The Porter, John, was terrific and so very helpful and always pleasant. See him for any needs! The beach was beautiful and just a very short walk.
Cons: The shower curtain liners are very thick and dark, there is no light in the shower, and the liner doesn't let a light in the stall. could brighter.
Location: For the sports enthusiast, there is many water sports to do/rent. Bikes are free, water aerobics, snorkeling, kyaks, paddle boards, volley ball.
We stayed here June 2015,. We enjoyed our stay at The Holiday Inn Resort Aruba very much. Our room was in the Palm tower, 6th fl ocean front overlooking the Pelican Pier, which at times was loud, and a beach sports, rentals out front. Our room was clean and neat, the view was lovely from our balcony. Do reserve your Palapa right away for the following day, between the beach and pool is ideal, The bar staff comes around and takes drink orders right at your Palapa, If by the Palm towers, you'll have to fetch your own drinks. The food on resort is expensive. We purchased the breakfast buffet one day, and for 2 adults and a teen girl, our bill was $70.00 USD. There is a Dunkin and a Starbucks one block away, Dinner on resort is a not cheap. We dined at the Sea Breeze restaurant, for two appetizers,and a dinner entree, two frozen drinks, our bill was over $80.00 USD..the atmosphere is delightful and the music was enjoyable. If I we came again, I would stay here. I would stay in the Sea Tower vs the Palm. closer to the action and the Palm bar and pool. Best of both worlds. Overall, we were sad to leave. If you budget for meals anticipate at least $1000 min. ( which goes quickly) or go all inclusive if avail.for the week, depending on the size of your family. There is also restaurants across the street.

Refurbished Holiday Inn in Aruba Scores BIG

Posted 22-Jun-2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: It's still an older hotel but overall not bad.
Location: Salt and Pepper is one of our favorite lunch and dinner spots along with Wacky Wahoo and Moomba Beach.
This was our 4th trip to Aruba we've stayed at the Marriott, The Westin and Hyatt but we decided to try the upgraded Holiday Inn closer to Moomba Beach, the locals hangout. We were pleasantly surprised by the upgrades and aside from a power outage for AC repairs on the roof we enjoyed every moment of it. They went above and beyond for our comfort, the room was very clear and fresh. It was very close to all the activities we do and the places we like to eat. Overall we were very satisfied and will plan our 5th trip to Aruba to include the Holiday Inn.

Nice hotel, close to the beach

Posted 20-Jun-2015
Clean room, nice hotel, close to the beach, nice and clean pool. It's not cheap to eat in the hotel, also the phone calls from the room are expensive( even local), you should rent a car and a cell phone ( do it on line). Super food (grocery store) has great breakfast for about $ 6_ 8
