Great Expirience

The experience was great, staff and service people are very friendly. The hotel room was pretty comfortable and clean. The hotel has 3 pools and 2 spas. Also the hotel has a lot everyday amenities including a kid's game room, live romantic music for adults and games. In resume is a lot of FUN for all family. The location is great with a lot stores and restaurant an a big boulevard to walk. The only issue with the hotel is the parking lot, some days you have to ask the bell boys you help you to find a parking spot on a worker's parking lot because is not any space available on the guest's parking lot, but the can help you finding a parking space for your car.

Palm Beach is the best in Aruba

Well to be honest the resort is a regular average hotel... like you would expect in the U.S but not in a resort. You always expect a resort to be breath taking on first site. The staff is ok but half of them seem to have a attitude problem. Now as for the Beach this hotel is lucky to be located on Palm Beach. Palm Beach is very beautiful with crystal clear water and super soft white sand and not to forget the scenic palm tree. I went to the also famous eagle beach just a couple of miles down from palm beach and it didn't come close to palm beach beauty. The eagle beach sand very harsh with a lot of crushed seashells that make it hard to walk with no sandals. Palm beach is the best in Aruba. But as for Holiday Inn Resort should be at the bottom of the list when choosing somewhere to stay at Palm Beach Aruba.

Relaxing vacation alone

This resort was recommended to me by my boss, who had just stayed here about 2 months prior. The staff here was AMAZING!!! While checking in, I was told that the only rooms with king sized beds were on the first floor, but I could have a room with a better view on the second floor, but it had 2 double beds. Luis, who checked me in told me to go with the room with the 2 double beds. He was right. My view was incredible, and I was 100 feet from the beach. I elected not to do the all inclusive package based on reviews I had read. And they were right. There are so many restaurants within feet of the hotel. For breakfast, Dushi Bagels is a must, and Emely was amazing. Every morning when I went for breakfast, I was greeted with a hug and she chatted with me the whole time I was there. The beach at the hotel is great! It was so clean and well kept. The staff is wonderful, and I highly recommend getting a hut every day. You have to get in line for it at 3:30 and they start reserving them at 4:00. There is a tent on the beach to do all water activities, which are way more inexpensive than anywhere I have ever been. As for nightlife, Gusto is the place to go. All of the bartenders are so friendly and welcoming. They also do 1/2 price drinks every night from 9-11. This was the place to go every night.

Great location at an affordable price

This hotel is right on the beach, with many rooms offering at least a partial view of the ocean. Staff is very friendly and food is quite good. Unfortunately, most of the food & drink venues on premises tend to close earlier than the surrounding establishments. Then again, with so many options within walking distance, the only difference is not being able to charge your night out to your room! I would definitely consider coming back.

Short getaway

The hotel is in a great location with a lot to do on the beach as well as the mall across the street. The staff are helpful in booking tours which they have an excursion desk in the hotel. The rooms are very clean which I have been quite accustomed with Holiday inns.

Great trip

The trip was wonderful except for one issue with our room. We went to lay down, flipped over the pillows and there was a huge blood stain and drippings on it and also the floor. The next morning we informed the housekeeper and she had it taken care of when we returned. We were a little uneasy with that room, but had no other choice but to stay since the front desk said all other rooms were full. Other than that, I definitely recommend Aruba as a favorite vacation and will definitely return.

Island getaway

The hotel has a good value with nice amenities right on the beach as well as a mall just across the street. The tour desks in the hotel made planning excursions quite convenient not to mention the staff were quite helpful in selecting an activity that fit all of our group's needs. We tried the breakfast buffet which turned out to be just average -- the mall across the street offered better choices. Overall the stay was great and I would plan to go back.

Great hotel for the Soul Beach. Day parties at Moomba bar right next door. Clean facilities, lovely pools, casino is nice as well. Only thing I disliked was the slime on the ocean floor. Eagle beach is the most beautiful! Sand and water!
