Although my husband and I first came to Aruba in 1998 and have been back more than 15times, we had never stayed at the Holiday Inn. What a pleasant surprise ! All staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and bright and the bed was very comfortable.. The ocean was perfect and the sunsets amazing.
At first having to wait in line at 3 to reserve your hut for the next was day was a pain. But then I realized it was a great way to get out of the sun for an hour and met nice people.
A special shout out to the saxophone player in Breezes restaurant - he was fantastic.
The only area I would offer a suggestion to make it even more special is to have the beach cleaned up more closely - there seemed to be straws from drinks left in the sand over night and I happened to step on a rusty nail under one of the huts - with the ocean air and the wind it's bound to eat away at some of the nails holding the huts together. Maybe even comb the beach with a metal detector on occasion would take care of it.
Overall the value was great and we will be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arenaplayaysol Excelente opción para disfrutar de vacaciones familiares
El Hotel Holiday Inn de Aruba fue durante la semana pasada, nuestro hogar lejos de casa.
Después de hacer algo de investigación por internet, comparando precios y lo que ofrecen diversas opciones de alojamiento, optamos por reservar en base a una tarifa de pago anticipado que resultaba atractiva, dos habitaciones para alojarnos mi familia, constituida por mi esposa y yo, junto a nuestros tres hijos, de edades entre 12 y 5 años.
El alojamiento fue cómodo, las instalaciones se encontraban en buen estado y la atención que recibimos fue la que esperamos. Disfrutamos de los abundantes y deliciosos desayunos que ofrece el hotel, las piscinas y la playa, servicio de "palapas" (toldos), bar, club de entretenimiento y actividades para niños y una ubicación privilegiada sobre la costa de Palm Beach.
Luego de esta experiencia regresamos a casa recargados de energía y con muchos buenos recuerdos y fotos para recordar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LP6720 Awesome!
This was our first time to Aruba and we chose the Holiday Inn because we are a member of the Priority Club. We didn't know what to expect from an older hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was large and clean, the view was magnificent, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Adriana, Nicky and Junior were terrific. We are already planning our next trip!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cec7730 SHOPS IN HOTEL !!!
Total disgrace to have such rude, un-attentive , lazy people working on those stores...We tried to shop in the Deli 5 times !!! Twice we found the lady in the store across ( gift shop) chatting with her friends...NONE paid attention both times we asked if she could open HER store both times she waved us off telling us to come back later...2 times she was no where around...And once we were there 30 minutes BEFORE close and she refused to un-lock the door...Talking to other guests they said the same thing !! We told hotel manager, but she still was never in her store !!
Soo, we shopped at instead...Way nicer !!
If that was my shop, I would be furious paying somebody who won't let customers in !! Other than that we like the hotel. The shop ladies should be replaced to improve the hotel standard..Thank You

Walking distance to shops and restaurants.
Pool Hut guys are great. Need more people walking the beach to offer food & drink service. At 6:30 AM just about all poolside chaises are already taken. How can that be???
