All of the hotel staff are very professional, courteous and very helpful. Our room was ready for us upon check-in, very clean and roomy. The location of the hotel is ideal as many of the restaurants and shops are within walking distance. The pool & beach are excellent. We feel it is the nicest beach on Palm Beach. We travel to Aruba quite frequently and we feel we get the "best bang for our buck".

Customer service was very disappointing none of the staff seemed to care about anything I asked for such as more towels or where I could possibly find a fan or if they had one. Literally everything I asked for help on the answer was no or they don’t know. Only good help we got was from Edwardo the bar tender at the outside bar he was very nice and helpful. Will definitely be renting a house next time, rooms were just okay and definitely not worth 260 a night

2 star room at 4 star location

Pros: The location is perfect. Beach and pool are nice.
Cons: Staff could be more accommodating and pleasant.
Location: You can very safely walk to nearby resorts, plenty of shopping and restaurants.
Overall I would say the hotel itself is lacking a bit but the location and beach/pool are 4-5 star. You can't beat the price compared with the many hotels next door.

Holiday Inn ResortAruba

This is a nice hotel on Palm Beach. Our room was on the third floor directly above the loading dock, so we were subjected to a lot of unwanted early morning and late night noise. The hotel staff was very friendly and did their best to please us.

Great location, great place.

Pros: Clean, open air lobby. Comfy room. Great location.
Cons: Availability of evening seating on the beach, for sunsets.
Centrally located, on the western shore, with many shops and restaurants within walking distance, and the beach and spectacular sunsets just outside the door. Highly recommended.

Nice hotel on the beach

Not bad. Very large hotel in a good location. right on the beach. Vastly overpriced. $500.00 room and not even a lousy bagel for breakfast.

Holiday Inn Aruba

Pros: The beach at the hotel was awesome and the grounds were beautiful
Cons: Rooms are a little dated but nice. Beds were new and the room was clean. No bugs. Carpet could be replaced
Location: See above
From the moment we stepped into the Holiday Inn Aruba it was an excellent experience. The hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly. Check in process was easy and the hotel grounds were outstanding. Pool area was awesome though you had to get up very early to get a seat with an umbrella. The palapa's were hard to reserve and you had to stand in line the day before at 3 pm to reserve. We only ate one meal there as thee were so many great places to eat right near the hotel. I highly recommend you get a car to travel around the island and discover some of what Aruba has to offer in the way of other beaches and snorkeling opportunities. Travelocity was the best price we found on the internet for what we were looking for. Outstanding vacation!!!!!

HAD GREAT TIME

Pros: Very friendly staff and location
Cons: Would like to see waiter service at the pools for drinks
Location: Location is great you can walk to restaurants and shops across the street. Other hotels are nearby to visit casinos.
Totally enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn. Was a big change as I always stayed in an all inclusive. I found that going out to the many restaurants on the boulevard was most enjoyable. Hope to go for a longer time next year.
