Holiday Inn Resort Aruba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Can't beat the price for this beautiful location. HIRA employees are the tops, never a disappointment. Rooms are clean and it is clear that customer service is number one on the list. A message for Headquarters: The beach area has declined in the three short years we have visited. Please replace the weathered chairs, the green lounge chairs are VERY old and breaking and the white chairs are showing their age! The beach used to be groomed and this year not once! Unfortunately not everyone does their part cleaning up after themselves leaving cups, straws and trash. Each morning we had to pick up the palapa area we pain stakingly waited in line for the day before. A once over with that piece of equipment that sifts out the sand every evening would go a long way. Thank goodness for the friendly staff or this review would have rated lower.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn and our stay couldn't be better, your staff is very friendly especially Eugene,Miguel and Roden of activities. They made our stay and of my kids enjoyable and provided me with the peace of mind that my children where well taken care of. Rose Maria and Chan of the pool bar were very nice and gave us a very good service. Will certainly be back.
This is our second time here in two years. This is a very nice hotel, its true that it may need updating but the staff is very nice, the grounds are beautiful and the beach ...unbelievable !!! I would recommend this hotel no problem, like a said great staff and so clean!!
We returned to Holiday Inn Resort after our stay in November 2017. Once again it did not disappoint. Check in was breeze as well as check out. We get a basic room in the main building (5) but had a partial view of the Caribbean. The room is a basic hotel room with a mini fridge and coffee maker. Room was always cleaned by the time we went back to the room after a day on the beach. My wife and I don't eat at the on site restaurants with the exception of the pizza place located next to the activity center. Its right on the beach and convenient when your on the beach. If you want a sit down lunch head to Carlitos which is a beach side bar 50 yards down the beach. they have a 10.00 special (burger and soda) and bucket of 5 Balashi for 18.00. I have eaten at the Sea Breeze on the Holiday Inn property and it is very good. As for reserving your place in the shade, it's something you have to do if you want a palapa. Get in line around 3 and they start assigning at 4. It's hard to get one close to the water regardless of what order in line you are. If you want a very reasonable place to stay with good service, comfortable beds and a beautiful beach, you can't go wrong with Holiday Inn Resort. It's in the High Rise area so there are many shops and restaurants right across the street. This Resort is the only one we have been to that wasn't all inclusive because of the price and the friendly , safe nature of Aruba. We have stayed at Many Sandals Resorts and although they are much fancier, you can't beat the Holiday Aruba for price. We have stayed here twice and plan on staying here again in the near future.
Very impressed by this property. One of the cleanest places I have been. You can see how hard the housekeeping staff work to maintain this facility. Pools and beach area are great. The staff at the beach shack responsible for towels and palapas do a wonderful job. Their supervisor and the staff are very accommodating. The wait time to get a palapa each day was made fun since the activity staff make the time go faster by playing games. Had a wonderful time and would recommend this property to everyone.
