The location, pools and the beach is super nice! However, the hotel rooms could use a big update. Our sliding doors and closet doors would hardly close, and I don't think the hotel has had a room update for the last 20 years. Also, they should really do more to be sustainable as they use way too much plastic. The plastic cups were even wrapped in plastic! Also suggest they install big containers of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel instead of supplying tiny single use ones every day.

Great experience. Very clean and inviting hotel. Super easy check in. Good beach access. Great location in Palm beach. Loved staying in this hotel.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We have told our friends about this hotel The staff was nice and helpful Room was clean and very comfortable See you again

Great beach front. Proximity to Pelican Pier and music they would blast out to the beach so everyone could hear. The staff were very very friendly and always helpful. Glad the rooms were renovated. Looked forward to sleep in the king size bed. So comfy. They could use a little renovation work outside and on the casino but overall very pleasant stay.

Hotel was very clean and the staff friendly, located in a great location/

You really need staff the caters to the customers after all WE are the reason they have a job. RUDE. Beach is beautiful

It definitely is a beautiful place to be BUT some of the staff at the front desk need an attitude adjustment , had a big problem when we changed rooms & Kimberly told us everything would be fine & I went to see her the day we were switching & she was way to busy to help & the woman that did help us was VERY rude & locked us out of our room before we can get our things, than wanted to argue with me & when I asked to speak to Kim she said no she’s busy. I did speak to a manager and he did absolutely Nothing for us . You need to get staff that are customer friendly & know that WE are the reason they have a job.

Aruba always nice. Holiday inn is basic but very convenient to area restaurants

Close to beach. Rooms ok, beds clean and comfortable. Paid for an upgrade gave up a king bed to do that and moved further from where we requested...

We loved our stay. The staff was great and the food was great.

Poor customer appreciation/service. When checking in last week for 10 days, they refused to give us a room with a king bed. We were stuck with two double beds. Good thing there was two, because they were so small my girlfriend and I decided to sleep in separate beds they were terribly uncomfortable. Not much consideration for a customer that has stayed here 6 or 7 times. There won't be an 8th. Also, there is no reserved parking for you if you have a rental car. All of the locals take up all of the spots and they tell you to park in the charge to park lot. Nice. This place is tired and needs some attention. They just seem to care anymore, so I won't either. Not horrible, but not good either.

Nice resort, right on the beach, casino way too smokey.

For the price you can't beat Holiday Inn. This was our 4th year staying at Holiday Inn. Four years ago the mattress was perfect - it seemed rather used and not as comfortable as our first time. Same design to bedding all white but there use to be a nice decorative sash across the bed - gone. The drapes have seen better days - they didn't meet together on top due to people constantly pulling on them to close and not clean on the bottom. The rooms just need to be updated. Would we go again ? Yes but other places are starting to look more appealing.

It was a nice hotel. I would stay there again and recommend it to others. It was near other hotels and restaurants to where you could walk.

At the beach and convenient to shopping and restaurants.

Great location. Excellent clean beach. Very nice stuff. Always ready to help you. My wife and I fourth time in a row in this resort. We always travel in August. No harrecain, no rain.

Since this was mine and my wifes 3 rd time visit to this paradise place and our kids 2nd I did want to write this review.It takes about 20 minutes very safe taxi drive to the Holiday Inn.Coming to the hotel the first person we saw was Edward the bartender from the pool bar and as being recognized from last years trip it felt really awesome the words he mentioned to us "WELCOME HOME".The rooms we stay in are standard nothing extraordinary but for us we dont spend too much time in rooms so it is waste of money to upgrade.The rooms are really nice well maintained no bugs the bathroom was completely functional no complaints whatsoever.The beach cannot be any closer to the Hotel.The beach is a paradise there was not one piece of seaweed along the mile long beach..Very safe for the kids and relaxing nobody bothers you about any activities .They have all kind of activities on the front of the beach but you have to go see them for activities they wont come to you and bug you..The pools are very well maintained as well very clean .Since having an 9 year old and a 5 year old they have amazing kids club which our kids were every single day from 2 to 5 and they were never bored but that is thanks to the wonderful kids club staff starting with Miguel the manager and as well as Rodenn Mariela and Eugene ..At the end I just want to mention few more names bartenders Edward Pedro Lucas Hamilton and the corals breakfast place waitress Diana and Rosa Maria which were both from Columbia.Thank
