Excellent!

Posted 16-Jun-2017
The hotel was clean, GREAT location , i was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. Most of the hotel staff was nice however, since it's very hot in Aruba all the vending machines with water were gone, Front desk would not give any free water, referred me to the bar to pay. However when I did get sick during my stay & hotel staff was very helpful . Overall I would recommend & would stay again.

Nice hotel, right on the beach.

Posted 14-Jun-2017
Pros: Very friendly staff. Rich at the concierge desk was very helpful. Pelican Pier restaurant and Moomba bar/rest. on the beach were great.
skip the all inclusive, Aruba has too many good restaurants and we felt very safe walking around away from the hotel.

It's like returning Home

Posted 12-Jun-2017
My wife and I continually enjoy our time at the Holiday Inn. The staff are always on point, friendly and welcoming. Specifically Jeanette, Rosa and Berny at the bar. John, Tico, Debra at the front of the house and booking. And Roy, Martin, Benrick at the beach. All around the house we receive a sense of friendship and we truly enjoy our there because of it. We could stay anywhere on the island. But each year we always say...no, let's go back to our hotel. That service could possibly be recreated somewhere else. But to combine it with the friendships made and comfort to accompany it. Others couldn't compare. So we'll be returning next year to our Home away from home

Will Be Sure To Return!

Posted 07-Jun-2017
Pros: That it was affordable and still luxurious. I like that everything was close by, walking distance away.
Location: The mall and restaurants were walking distances away. Casino in the hotel
Our stay at the Holiday Inn Resort was wonderful, we will definitely return to this location. The staff was kind and helpful, we were comfortable, the rooms were clean, the ocean view was amazing. There was so much to do and it was walking distance to the mall and local restaurants. The staff was helpful in getting us to different locations and we felt safe throughout our stay! We plan to bring the kiddos very soon.

Great Location for Your Stay

Posted 30-May-2017
Everything was superb except for sleeping. We were in the Sea Tower next to a night club. Weekends and more, loud bumping base kept us up to past 1:am. Front desk said completely ok by city codes. Great stay just don't stay in Sea tower near Mumba nightclub.

Nice Hotel

Posted 29-May-2017
I booked this hotel as part of a Expedia package and was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. As some of the reviewers have said, it is maybe not the best hotel in Aruba but It depends on what you are looking for. It was perfect for us. The property was clean and well kept. The grounds, pool and atmosphere were just fine. The staff was friendly the entire time we were there. The room was quite, roomy and comfortable, good bed. The bonus is the refrigerator in the room. Great service with Housekeeping Staff. There is a variety stores and restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. Check in was at a maximum, had to wait but Mary at the front desk shined like a star. She made our check in perfect. We would definitely stay here again, the price was perfect. Room Tip: Maybe try to get on the top floor 5 or 6, beautiful view and quite. Sea Tower location. Stayed: May 2017 traveled, stayed 9 day's

Nice hotel right on the beach.

Posted 28-May-2017
Pros: Very good value. If your looking for some nice amenities at an affordable price you can't beat it.
Cons: Speeding up the check in process. Only two or three people in front of us and still took 45 minutes to an hour to get checked in.
Location: Beach and shopping are right there plenty of restaurants close by you could walk to everything you need.
Experience was pretty good the hotel is going through renovations and was still pretty nice. Everyone was friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be it took a while to get checked in but everything else was good to great.
