Great Value!!!

We just purchased the all inclusive plan at the holiday in March 2018 and it’s a great value for what you get. However the speed of service at the restaurants needs improvement immediately! It seems as if they were short staffed all 7 days we were there. There were plenty of dirty open tables but took forever to get seated. Management needs to correct this if they don’t want to lose customers!!!

average purchase

hotel was neat and clean but needs updating. should get rid of carpeting!!!!! furniture was inadequate not much room for odds and ends! beds were very comfortable. biggest problems were 1.method of giving out the palapas everyday a line of guests would line up at 3:45 and get into a lottery who wins the palapa for the next day. At first I thought they were playing bingo. If you were one of the unlucky guest you could rent an umbrella for $35 a day!!!! 2. the fact that if I went for the all inclusive and wearing a red bracelet I do not want to be bothered with signing for every drink or meal that I get. That IS the purpose of all inclusive! 3.most of the staff were courteous but not friendly! Seldom greeted with a good morning or anything.It seemed they all had attitudes and not happy! All in all Holiday Inn is perfectly located with a beautiful stretch of beach nice pools and 2 hot tubs. Felt very safe and comfortable walking outside of resort to the shops and great choices of restaurants. I would recommend this resort and go again but wouldn't do all inclusive. Not needed!

Holiday Inn Aruba

The Cheap Caribbean agent requested a room away from the elevators and a courtyard balcony. I understand requests are not guaranteed, but these were simple requests. We ended up right next to the very busy elevator, and the room was directly above the parking lot where the laundry facility and services was. Every morning around 5am, it was loud trucks, loading, unloading, and very loud staff members. We spoke to the front desk twice, and was left with sighs and a could care less attitude. The staff overall were unhelpful and rude overall. Acted like they hated their job, and couldn't wait for their shift to end. The restaurant staff on the other hand were really wonderful. Not too many varieties with the all-inclusive, and the only breakfast option was yuck. They shuffle families in and out of the buffet, and every morning we had to ask that the dirty tables be wiped down from the previous family that ate at that table. The pools were closed early every night (7pm) and were much smaller than they appeared on photo/website. The beach was dirty with trash/cups/cigarette butts, etc. We won't be returning. It was a lot of money, for a mediocre vacation (at best).

No Regrets!!!

The moment we landed people were so nice and helpful. When we arrived at the resort, our vacation started. The view from the lobby just made you smile. Check-in was easy and informative. Rooms were very clean , pillows were too soft, bed was so squeaky which was annoying. I can't wait to again but with I want the ocean view next time, garden view was still nice and private but I want to see more. Food options was great if your not a picky eater. Da Vincii was the best ever I wish I went there for dinner more often. They have many food options with no worries. Many shops across the street to walk around. All the other resorts are connected so in case you want to pay out of pocket for dinner you have the freedom to do so. Worth the money and the staff are wonderful. Rosa is the best waitress EVER!!
