Great product

Overall it is one the best location Aruba has to offer in Hotel area. Impeccable beach and grounds, wider and less crowded then in surrounding hotels like Hyatt, Marriott or Riu... Rooms are wide enough to fit couch and king bed, TV with cinemax, showtime and lot more... Every room has a balcony with full or partial ocean view which is gorgeous. This hotel definitely need some investment to bring it up to modern standards, for ex. tennis courts need fences and surface fixes, bathrooms on ground floor need renovation and casino is rundown. Equipment in kids playroom and bikes the have could have been upgraded... and what is the deal with palapapas - used to be free 3 years ago. Now it is $30.

Worst experience yet

I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Aruba every September for the last 30 years. This was probably our worst experience. I arrived Sept. 22nd and left Oct. 2nd 2019. Maintenance in the hotel is practically non-existent. The main elevator did not work, the hot tub did not work, the ice machine on our floor (3rd floor) did not work, we had no hot water one evening (we stayed in the Sea Tower), and the air conditioner stopped in the building in the middle of the night. The air conditioner did come back on the next day. However, the elevator was never fixed, the staff report that the hot tub has not worked for 2 months, the ice machine was fixed the day we left.They also started a new policy where they charge $30 a day to "rent" the thatched huts on the beach. However, there are some free thatched huts which we were able to use but only because it was low season and the hotel was only filled to 60% capacity. Good Luck if you go in the high season! But the most serious problem is the difficulty in entering the ocean. There is now such a steep and unpredictable bank to get into the ocean, that I witnessed several women falling. I, myself, required assistance to get back out of the ocean. And I was there last year when the whole beach was closed because of a massive dredging operation. We were told by the staff last year that the purpose of this major dredging was to even out the beach so that you could just walk into the ocean. It was obviously a colossal failure. I went with a party of six and we did complain to the manager.

Nice Beach , Clean Room what more do ya want?

Beach was very nice. Rooms were basic but clean. Location is great..right near the high rises The only negative thing I would say is that this resort needs more umbrellas by the pools. They filled up very quickly( by 6 am) and if you get there after that you are out of luck. They do have cabanas but they are for rent at an additional charge.
