Holiday Inn Resort Aruba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this resort. From when I checked in, Aida was great. Although I did not get my wine to celebrate my birthday; I'll be back to collect :-)My room is just great. I'm embarrassed to say that I locked myself out 3 times and everyone was great. The spa was lovely, Neeta (hope I spelled it right) is a very good massage therapist. One drawback is that guests don't know how to be quiet in a spa atmosphere.The restaurants can use an upgrade with the menus. There are MANY choices right outside. My suggestion is to put a Chinese or Japanese restaurant or at least add sushi. The Grouper sandwich was delicious!I didn't drink much but when I did the drinks were made well. Overall 3.5 stars out of 5!!
We stayed five nights at the Holliday Inn and we were treated great and had a great time. We were welcomed in right from the start and everyone was very friendly. The hotel was right on the beach ( couldn't get any closer without being in the water). The hotel was very clean and our room was very quiet. The hotel was right across the street from a wide variety of restaurants and small gift shops. There is a mall right behind the restaurants if a person wants to spend more money. The beach and the water were awesome. The guys renting the water craft equipment were great and very friendly. If you use the same guys each day they are willing to give a price break, We would stay there again.
Location location location is what the hotel has!! When you go to Aruba let's just start you can't go wrong the weather is always great and the island is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay here. The price was even better. If you are looking to go to Aruba for a reasonable price check out the holiday inn!!
Family of 3 including our 5yr. Old son. We stayed for 6nig and 7days at the Holiday Inn. We decided to do the all inclusive thru expedia and it was very worth the money and stay. We stayed in the ocean tower building basically the middle building in front of the pool bar. On the 7th floor room 6704 and had partial ocean view with balcony which was cool. The all inclusive came in handy our first meal was breakfast and it came up to $82.00 with 2 adults and one child. At the end of each meal all i had to do was sign the receipt and my room number and thats it. Definitly gave tips to all the waiters and waitress...tipping goes along way so make sure you tip tip tip.... but the all inclusive its worth it, all you can eat, drinks, soda, water....We ate at all the places at the holiday inn. Sea Breeze Restaurant was our favorite. If we didnt have all inclusive the bill everynite for 2 adults and one child would of been well over $150 so i recommend all inclusive. As for the beach its nice and clean. There alot of different beaches near by also. The palapas are free for guess but you have to make a line every evening around 4pm to get one for the next day. We personally never made the line. Every morning we did decide to go to the beach right out front we were lucky enough to ask for any open palapas and sure enough there was always one open so don't go crazy waiting in line every day thru out my whole stay we could of had one every day. I admit the ones that get taking fast and the most are the ones closer the the beach water. The ones towards the back are always empty and they are about 15 feet away from the beach water and still close enough. The pools are great and big enough. The food and breakfast is average but good. Depends what nite you stay they have something going on outside after the pool is closed. Weather its a circus show or open buffet with music. The rooms are your averge holiday inn rooms with balcony. Overall i recommend this hotel with all inclusive stay to everyone! I have no complaints whats so ever. Ac in the room was cold. Tv had some cable channels so at nite when i was sleeping my son could watch some cartoons with my wife. Over all clean hotel and very friendley and helpfull staff! I might come back again in 2018' for a two week stay! Have any questions feel free to ask. I did alot during this vacation i just don't have time to right everything ;)
We stayed for 6 nights in an oceanfront room. Room was outdated but fine. The outdoor balcony chairs may have been the least comfortable chairs I have ever sat in. Check-in took awhile as others have mentioned and the front desk staff seem to wander after each guest is helped without even a "i'll be with you in a minute". The lack of a service elevator is odd as well as I felt we constantly were waiting for an elevator or unable to get on one with a housekeeping cart or something large already aboard. The casino was by far the most outdated one and we spent very little time inside. The lottery system for beach huts was a better system than getting up at the crack of dawn racing to beat people to put towels on beach chairs. It really didn't take too long and we were able to secure a hut/tent every day we wanted too even without a high pick. Outside of the above, the price was right, the location was excellent, and being so close to the beach was terrific. We didn't eat much at the hotel with plenty of options in short walking distance. We didn't rent a car and certainly didn't regret it during our stay. The hotel could certainly use some updating, but at the price and the location it was satisfying.
