Radisson is the best hotel on Aruba. Hyatt is second.

HI and Allegro are both nice, but both in need of updating, if you know what I mean. Do you like loud pool areas with activities (that I find annoying)? If so, then go with Allegro. Personally, if I had to choose between the two, I'd select the HI.

Enjoy your vacation! Aruba is the best!

Allegro is in need updating indeed. Don't get me wrong hotels on the island are continuously renovating themselves as the competition amongst hotels on the island is very strong and there is great demand for Aruba. I would first of all avoid the all inclusive programs as you are skipping the best dining experiences of the many great restaurants the island has to offer.
There many restaurants that are great and affordable on the island. But if you are still going with the all inclusive plan then I would choose the Allegro...Holliday has recently gone trhough a renovation but the pool area and the beach infront of the hotel is very crowded during the high season. Allegro has better rooms in my opinion.

Enjoy your vacation for more question e-mail me

i agree, allegro is MUCH nicer than holiday inn,i personally like all inclusive,i like to relax and not worry about where to go for lunch or dinner, it's all rigth there for you.first thing you'll have to do, if you go, is make reservation at the italian restautant at the resort.it's nice and good.water is great, no waves, the wind is always blowing from land to the water, i just loved it.the ocean looked like a hugh pool.land is very desert like.and please,if you like snorkling,we went on that hugh catamaran don't remmember the name, but those people where the best guides.
enjoy your time.

I went over Memorial Day week with a girlfriend and we stayed at the Marriott
Resort & Casino. It was a great hotel, worth the extra money it costs. I agree that the restraunts are great on Aruba. Try the Argentinian steak house I cant remember the name just ask anyone it is very well known. Great food, large portions and good prices. The one thing that iI can not say enough is DRINK the tap water. They distill it themselves on the island, and it is the best water I have ever tasted.

My husband and I just got back from Aruba on the 6th. We found the Holiday Inn to be our least favorite hotel and believe me, we checked them all out on Palm and Eagle beach. The pool is extremely small, loaded with kids and the grounds are pretty dumpy. We found the beach in front of the Holiday Inn to be the most rocky. They recently spent millions on a new lobby, but it was nothing spectacular. They do have a nice variety of shops right in their lobby if you are into that convenience.
