        The location is excelent. The beach is very beautiful. The swimming pools are very good. The rooms are good. There are things to do and eat at night near the Hotel.

        The Holiday Inn charged me 8% more than expect. According to the Booked.net, the Service charge was included and the 19.08 % Tax was not included. But the Holiday Inn charged in this way: Accomodation 139,30 + Room Service Charge 17,40 + Goverment Room Tax 12,01 + Ahata Fee 3,44 + Energy Charge 5,95 + Samba 1,00. !!! 8% more than expected. !!! Should be 663,51, They charged 715,40.

        The location was very good. On the beach, but also right in the center of the shopping and dining area at Palm Beach.

        The hotel seemed a little old and outdated. Especially the restrooms in the lobby, with doors that wouldn't close, no papertowels in the holders, etc.

        The location is the best point of the hotel, in Palm Beach , in front of the "Paseo Herencia" mall, that is the only one opended a little later ! Hotel is clean , room is big enough for two, very nice view from the beach , not so noisy, I would recommend this hotel because the price is good comparing to others in the same location.

        Staff in front desk not so friendly! It seems they were having a "bad day" , but all the time! In a city so full of tourists they could probably be smling more and be more gentle. Besides this, I would recommend this hotel for sure!!!

        It is very close to restaurants, bars, shopping centers and the beach was not even 50 yards away from the hotel. Great view and facilities.

        Pool is a little small but not tiny. When booking, be careful and mind the hidden fees. Ocean view is $80 extra. Food is not included but can be, they have that option at the hotel. It's a great experience but be aware of pricy food, transportation and drinks.

        Only the location and the long beach absolutely amazing

        We knew that the rooms and the rooms were a little bit old but this wasn't the main because the hotel was a disaster in terms of organization and administration....... To begin the whole reception including those who call themselves managers, urgently needs an education and cortesy course as it is an hotel and they work with clients and the absolute lack of smile and kindness in dealing with guests who are on vacation and absolutely willing, is staggering! In second time we needed a car, they called a rental car , we agreed (too much work for theme!) but the day after not seeing nobody after two hours, we asked the concierge who was the rental car they called the day before and the told us they hadn't no idea because there are many and many rental cars.......(incredible!) the reception manager told us that she was a manager and not concerned with the problems of her guests! In third time there were many problems with the final bill because the y had to charge a part as agreed with Booked.net and so we left the hotel signing a part of this bill .....instead yesterday we found the total charge on their own iniziative without saying anything .....rarely we found such ad amministration!!!!! What say more!?

        Only available hotel at a ridiculous price

        extremely expensive for such an outdated hotel. In Aruba they make price-agreements with competition to extract as much money as possible from the tourists. Outrageous.

        This hotel proved to be a good value. The location provided an excellent view of the Caribbean Sea, where the turquoise and blue waters are very inviting. A romantic opportunity to walk the sandy beach at sunset. A quick swim in the pool was refreshing. Enjoyed playing a game of life-size checkers pool-side.The outdoor Iguana bar offered a relaxing and fun atmosphere. The evening celebration of the Holiday dancers was colorful and festive. The breakfast buffet at Corals was excellent, and provided an extensive spread of foods - both local and American fare. Purchased a couple of picture frames from one of the stores within the hotel. Nearby are opportunities to set sail on the sea, as well as a fascinating under-water world to be seen through snorkeling. Shopping and restaurants are readily available and in walking distance. Enjoyed both the exclusive shops as well as the marketplace vendors working out of their carts.

        One electrical wall outlet in our room was a very loose fit, and a lamp required a replacement light bulb. I'm sure the staff would have corrected these issues, but we were having such a wonderful time that we didn't think about requesting assistance.

        Close to a nice shopping area.

        The Holiday Inn was ok but there are several more hotels in the area that are so much nicer.

        location

        services of hotel went down hill, hotel looks shabby, staff is uninformed, or just does not care, casino could use a do over, food is sub par better off eating outside of hotel, had to carry our ownluggage to room, stff is not attentive, waited 1/2 hour standing on line to check in, dining room staff does not know what is going on. We have never experienced this at the Holiday inn before we have stayed there several times but we will not anymore. The only thing that was good was the location.
