Holiday Inn Resort Aruba Review

This popular, family-oriented package-tour resort has three seven-story buildings filled with spacious rooms lining a sugary, palm-dotted shore. The pool's cascading waterfalls and sundeck, where you can enjoy the Wednesday-evening cocktail party, draws just as large a crowd as the beach. The lobby is usually overflowing with suitcases as the package tour throngs check in and out, so don't expect too much in the way of personalized service from the front desk or the concierge at these busy times. The resort's free program for kids is a nice touch.

    Not bad for the price!

    We had an all-inclusive (does not include alcohol) stay and enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms are modern and very spotless. Great roomy showers. The food is average and the drinks very very weak. The location is fantastic though! Wake up early and reserve a chair and umbrella at the spot of your preference and you can be a few feet from the beach while still next to the pool area. Reservations must be made if you plan on dining at the slightly upscale restaurant on the premises instead of the buffet type dining. Don't miss the Beach BBQ! Dining on the beach while the sun sets is an experience you'll never forget. For better service tip in cash instead of adding it to the room bill.
