Holiday Inn Resort Aruba - Beach Resort and Casino

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

You walk out the back door and you have an immediate choice of the beach, outside tiki hut bar, two swimming pools, several places to eat. Walk out the front door and you have many places for dining. The people are really friendly. This is just what a resort should be. The rooms may need a bit of work but did the most part they were comfortable. Each room (I believe) has a balcony

Nice area and very close to the beach. The hotel needs renovations

The staff was very nice, especially a desk clerk name of Mary (usually works 3-11 shift). She was terrific. The food at the Corals was average, the outdoor buffets less than average. The water was shut off for over 2 hours right at dinner time with no warning. The reserve system for the beach/pool venues weren a bit much.

Closeness to beach, the pools, restaurants. Not enough alcoholic drinks selections, restaurant prices alittle high, need more list of emmitities like availability of handicap equipment like the scooters, which we didnt know were available until we were leaving & that would been very helpful to my wife,

The Holiday Inn Resort Aruba was a great location and everything was Awesome....Ready to come back....Ray the X-Farmer

Lobby bartenders very slow. Rooms need to be updated. Everything you needed was right there ie..shops, stores.

Nothing. Don’t waste your money staying here. The one pro is the location. Walking distance to all shops, restaurants, clubs and other hotels. The hotel is falling apart. The food and drinks are terrible. Water down drinks, rude bartenders and basic food.

We liked the buffets at night for 18.00 all you can eat. We liked the location being close to many shops, restaurants and activities.We liked our room especially the comfortable bed and bedding. We were very happy during our stay.

I don't like waiting in line every afternoon for a palapa for the next day.

Not enough beach chairs and no umbrellas It almost seems like you had to leave what you were doing at three or 4 o’clock to put in your name or pay for some shade

Like the white sand beach is right off the hotel,the staff is outstanding and very friendly. The pools were clean the beachea were clean and so was the hotel.Dislike hum ,the ice melts so fast in your drinks .

Great location most of the staff was friendly.The casino was in extremely poor condition.I did not like my room because it was near a bar and restaurant and the band played loud music until 1am every morning so we didn’t get much sleep.

This resort truly exceeded my expectations. It has a perfect location, right in the heart of the town, and steps to the beautiful beach. My family personally prefers small resorts, where you don’t have to walk for long time to get to the pool or beach, and Holiday Inn was perfect in this aspect. We had a spacious ocean view room, with amazing views of the beach. Room was cleaned daily and was big enough for our family of 4. Upon checking in, my husband and I decided to pay extra to get all-inclusive package. I must say - it was the best decision we’ve made. Food was just phenomenal, especially in Da Vinci (Italian) and Sea Breeze. In those two restaurants you are ordering from the menu, and everything is made fresh for you. If you prefer buffet style dinner - they had it too every night in Corals. Puro Cafe has delicious selection of coffee and ice cream which we enjoyed daily. There is also Oceanside Bar and Grill where you can grab a quick burger/chicken wings/salad. Aruba is very pricey if you go out to eat, and I think we have saved a lot of money by choosing all inclusive. With two kids, it was much more convenient for us. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and we look forward to come back to this resort in the future.

This hotel has gone downhill ! Disappointed after many years of staying there!

There were many little things that could have been so much better. A fan in the bathroom, a pull out magnifying mirror, a view of something interesting besides a parking lot. A sound proof room. One of the biggest disappointments were the Palapas. There used to be more of them and spread out. Now they are all crammed together at one end of the resort and all the water sports kiosks are in front of them. It doesn't look like the beach is cleaned. On and on the list goes,...

Beach top notch. Elevator not always working. Only one exterior stairs would let us in. Coffee stand needs more help and more food options.
