I came here on spring break and my goodness, what an amazing time I had. The staff is WONDERFUL. Super friendly, super helpful, I just cannot say enough about them. You always feel safe bc there are security everywhere, and the security is not the intimidating kind that just stand there muggin ppl, they are extremely nice and cool! Everything was perfect...the only thing that was negative was that they didn't play rap music since I didn't come on college spring break. NEXT YEAR THOUGH ;) count me in

My husband and I recently stayed in the Ocean Tower and absolutely loved every minute of our vacation. I honestly do not know what could have been done to make it any better. Views were spectacular, beach access was amazing, friendly staff, and the cleanest resort I have ever seen. Our friends stayed in the Sea Tower and it was equally nice but a longer walk from the center lobby (for shopping) and some pools than ours was. We did not splurge for ocean views but got one anyway.

Room Tip: Ocean Tower, don't splurge for ocean view, chances are it will be anyway.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort Aruba last year from June 1 - June 8. The stay was extremely relaxing. The hotel was better than I expected. It was clean and comfortable. We didn't do an all inclusive because there are many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel but we did have breakfast included which was decent. Getting a spot on the beach was no problem and the reservation process made it easy to choose where you wanted to be.

We loved the hotel, beach, and location so much that we are returning in August with the extended family to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary, 2 milestone birthdays and a graduation. Looking forward to our return and our stay!

My wife and I usually stay at Hilton properties. As there were no Hilton properties, we thought we give the Holiday Inn a try. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was very nice and very clean. The beach was GREAT. The best thing was the staff! Very friendly and helpful! From Shirley at check in to The gentleman who reserve the palapas, everyone was great.

This was our fifth time to Aruba but our second time with our two year old son. In my previous times to Aruba we stayed at the Renaissance and Occidental Hotels. I have to admit that I was very hesitant to stay at the Holiday Inn since most Holiday Inn's have a cheap stigma to their properties in the US. However, I was completely wrong about this one -- it is certainly the best bang for you buck. If you're traveling with family this is the best place since it's located on the strip near all of the restaurants and malls. The property sits on eagle beach and each of the three buildings to the property has it's own pool for the kids to enjoy. Aruba in itself is very safe but we felt extremely safe at this Holiday Inn.

We generally do not like to do the all inclusive meals since we like to try different cuisines but on two occasions we ate at the all-you-can-eat dinner and breakfast options which were $27 and $21 respectively. And best of all, kids under 12 eat FOR FREE!!! This was great since my wife's nine year old cousin traveled with us to Aruba.

It also helps that this resort was recently renovated. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. The personnel was extremely warm and helpful. In the end I was very impressed with the quality of the hotel for the money I paid which was at least thirty percent less than the other hotels I looked into. Again, if you're going with kids -- this is the place to go! I hope this helps and enjoy!

Room Tip: all the rooms are renovated so any room is okay. we stayed at the sea tower and it was all ok.

It was our first time in Aruba and we decided to stay in Palm Beach. After researching for prices, we found the Holiday Inn Resort the best option for our budget.
The resort is great: beach front palapas (have to reserve them the day before after 4 pm), 3 restaurant options + 2 bars and a pizza hut, a small fitness center, daily gym classes included, complimentary newspaper and bikes, 3 pools and jacuzzis, a spa... Everything we needded.
The staff was friendly and the location is great: walking distance of several restaurants and bars (All inclusive deals are really not necessary). Breakfast was kind of expensive: U$ 18 + 15,5% TAX: so it's up to U$ 50 for a couple. There are a lot of more convenient options just across the street (for example, full breakfast buffet for U$ 9,95 + tax).
Paseo la Hacienda Mall is just in front and there's another shopping mall a block away.
You have walking access to the Pelican Pier, where you can have drinks with a view for a good price.
The rooms were ok: spaciuos, very confortable bed, TV with channels in several languages, coffee maker and complimentary wifi. Great sleep quiality. Every room has a balcony but ours had parking-view, the only, let's say "bad" thing. I could definately stay there again if I go to Aruba.

My husband and I stayed at the HI Resort last September (Yes, I know.... I'm late writing this) I am a Platinum member for HI and we were upgraded to an Oceanfront Room. The view was simply amazing!! The room was super clean, with room-service every day. We only ate at the pool restaurant once, and it was great. The location on the hotel is perfect...... close to many other restaurants, so we ventured out each night for dinner. We took a taxi to the grocery market a few miles away and bought breakfast/lunch things (bread, lunch-meat, cheese, sodas, chips, fruit and snacks, and beer). We packed a small cooler in our luggage and took our own beer to the beach each day. The water was perfectly clean and calm. Pools were great, but we have a pool in our backyard, so we stayed at the beach every day. Everyone at the HI was extremely nice and helpful! This in NOT your typical Holiday Inn...... It is very upscale. We never had an issue with the loud music that people speak of, and we were in that tower? The casino was small, but nice. We plan to go back this next September and once again stay right there at the HI. I don't recommend the all inclusive... ONLY because there are so many choices for food within walking distance of this resort. It was VERY safe out walking around the town. We never felt scared or threatened at all. There are a ton of casinos within walking distance as well.

Just a fair warning,,,,, Aruba is pretty close to the Sun. It's huge, bright and HOT! The sunsets are the prettiest I've ever seen.

Room Tip: Oceanfront room was AMAZING!!
