Holiday Inn Resort Aruba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Getting there after Hurricane Matthew left his imprint was a little disappointing. Beach was a mess. Seaweed was everywhere but the staff was excellent. They worked tirelessly to get the beach back to where you could walk and eventually swim. Always a favorite island to visit
the people thier are vert friendly the people at the front desk due everything to make you feel welcome the maid servive wasoutstanding always asking us if there is nanything we need the beach servive people would come by our hut to see if there was anything that we needed
We stayed the week after Hurricane Matthew hit the island. They had all the debris cleaned up in just a couple of days and the beach was back to looking beautiful! Compared to the other high rise hotels on the island, the Holiday Inn is much less fancy in appearance but the location is great with a lot of activities and shops within walking distance. If you are not looking to spend an outrageous amount of money on a hotel, but want a fantastic beach, great pool, good service, and clean rooms, the Holiday Inn is the perfect choice.
My first time in Aruba, with a group of 20 for a birthday celebration. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort Aruba, Beach Resort & Casino.The rooms and grounds are nice. The beach and the weather are beautiful, perfect for lounging everyday. Shops and restaurants onsite,and within walking distance. There are plenty of activities; yoga, a day of pampering at the spa, dinner buffet on the beach with live jazz and entertainment,daily tours of the island, and a local jazz festival in downtown Oranjestad. Can't wait to go back.
I am writing a review because it was our second time after 2 years at the Inn in Aruba, and it just wasn't the same! Starting from the rooms, they had a little smell (although they changed our room within hours after checked in) which we didn't expect. The food in the restaurants was almost like fast food! No taste! Breakfast Buffet was one of the best out of everything, with many selections too. Service at front desk very nice, but the wait staff at the restaurants- Very Bad! Usually my husband makes fun of me that I'm hard and very picky, but when he complained about the service too I knew it's really bad! The attitude of the servers, wow, they hated to be there I guess! Camilla, our waitress at the breakfast buffet restaurant, I died laughing when my husband asked her for a napkin and she looked at him as if he cursed her and just walked away!! Really?? And you're getting tip from us, hello! I then asked her to blend some fruits for my baby which I've cut and made it all ready, (we did that everyday and there was no problem with other waiters) she brought back a juice (she added water to the point that it was literally a juice). I didn't ask her back or argue because she was just mean and hated being there! As we left, she was laughing with the manager (a tall guy I forgot his name, very nice guy) and she said 'Byeeee' smiling at us as if she was trying to show to the mng that she cares about customers, lol. Overall, when the service and the food is not good, it kinda makes your stay ehhh. I don't think I would go back again!
