    Perfect location

    It was our first visit to Aruba and the most affordable option for our visit. We did not do the all inclusive option, but we did opt to have the breakfast included. The breakfast choices were perfect. However....please change the coffee. It was terrible. We paid for coffee in the lobby as the other was so bad. The view from our room was looked over the pool and gave us a great view of the sunset. The rooms were clean and the A/C was perfect! The fan in the bathroom did not work, which made the room slightly more humid after a nice hot shower. Location was perfect. Beaches were clean. We did not have an issue to get a palapa in the afternoon, as many were vacant. If you are looking for a clean place to put your head, no frills hotel this is a fantastic choice.

    Great option

    This hotel is on Aruba’s most popular beach, where many of the chain hotels are located. The hotel looks like it was built in the 1950s or 1960s but the rooms have been updated more recently. The rooms look like a typical Holiday Inn and are clean. The food is good, although there are several complexes across the street from the beach with restaurants and bars. If you’re on the all inclusive plan, some items are excluded.

    50 and Fabulous in Aruba

    This is my 3rd consecutive year staying here during the Soul Beach music festival, and it will not be my last! The location of the resort is prime for the festival and also the beach experience. The resort sits directly on the beach. You are literally steps from the sand and beautiful water. The room was comfortable and clean. We also had a balcony view which gave us a beautiful view of the blue waters. I broke my foot a couple of weeks before my trip, and the manager Mariana L. was beyond accommodating. She promptly answered all of my questions and concerns, and made my experience so pleasant. I would recommend the all inclusive package. The food is really great. The Sea Breeze restaurant is my favorite, and one of my favorite waiters there is Jonathan. He is very patient, and does not fold under the pressure of large parties with a lot of requests lol. All of the staff were great! Thank you Holiday Inn, Aruba! See you next year! -Yvette A.

    Good place to stay

    This hotel offers a good location. Many restaurants close by, bus stop to take to the downtown/ cruise ship area (about 20min & US $2.50 or $2.60 each currently). With a good beach front to enjoy the water and most of the hotel staff is friendly and helpful, I would recommend staying here. The WiFi is super slow though and some of the food options can be a but on the pricy side.
