Beautiful lobby but...

The lobby area that you see in the pics is the best part about it. If you're gonna book this hotel DO NOT book through a 3rd party because they treat you like red headed step children when you check in if you do. I booked in March for August and requested a king size bed instead of the double beds for my husband and I. They gave us the doubles which are freaking small for a husband and wife who are not petite and may sleep wildly. So half the time I would wake up in the middle of the night to go sleep in the other bed because I was so uncomfortable. When I went back down to the lobby to tell them we selected a king bed when we booked, they said that's optional on their end when we book through a 3rd party. The beds were super squeaky. They have balconies for all their rooms but the one in our room literally looked out to the roof. It was actually comical. The room looked NOTHING like the pictures. Other than all of that, it wasn't horrible.

On vacation, my husband was injured at the pool. He slipped on the top step getting into the pool because it was wet and slippery. He fractured his ankle is 2 spots and had to have urgent surgery while in Aruba. The staff of the hotel was not very helpful or accomodating. They said they did not have to do anything. They did not even call to ask how he was after the surgery. I had to go out and buy crutches for him. They said not to worry about anything including medical bills and they lied about everything. Definitely would not recommend this hotel.

Being oceanfront it was worth the price! Booked a partial ocean view room and the view was excellent, right above the pool area and ocean was right there. All the shops and restaurants were across the road. Loved the shows and activities during the day. Carpets need updates through out the halls.

Had an enjoyable stay. Front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. We did upgrade to an ocean front room and was told there was a pull out couch in the room. However when we got to the room there was only a king size bed. Has to get a roll away bed which was fine however we paid for a room with a king size bed and couch and did not get that. The washing machines available for guests need some work. One washer was broke and the other needed to be cleaned. It had a musty smell. Those washers need to be tended too and cleaned on a regular basis. Overall our stay there was very comfortable and enjoyable. The grounds are impeccable and the choices of restaurants and places to eat was great. I would stay again and plan too in the near future.

First time visiting Aruba, decided on Holiday Inn due to price. Just like we all know, you get what you pay for. Was not impressed at all. Room was dirty, especially the floor. Stray hairs everywhere and dental floss on the floor in the bathroom. SO DISGUSTING! Air condition in our room never worked our entire stay. We had to call maintenance several times, still wasn't fixed. On a better note, the beach is beautiful and the location is perfect. Overall we had a wonderful time. When and if we return we will certainly pick another hotel to stay at.

Holiday Inn is def in need of updating/renovations! But the beds are super comfortable! The ocean side balconies are huge! The refrigerator in room is large! The staff brought a fan to us to use at night as the air conditioning wasn’t enough in our room! The bathrooms are small and showers are outdated and have very little water pressure! But the grounds/ landscaping are beautiful thru out the property! The 3 pools are clean but show rust spots thro out the floors of each! The tiki ocean side bar is the fun bar with its happy hour daily from 4:30-6:00pm! The bartenders (Edwards and Bryon) are the ones to ask for! They are super!
