    Stellar Customer Service

    From the moment we were greeted with a beverage on premise's at check in until check out ( we extended our stay we had so much fun) we received nothing but excellent service . The GM Kevin and MOD John Carlo and Gelisa are exceptional! The entire staff is so friendly and helpful and should be recognized. We visited 2 other resorts and our group all agreed HI was by far more attentive and accommodating. Although it could use some updating ( but I understand they are waiting for the 25 year lease renewal before doing so) location cannot be beat. rooms and facilities are clean and service spot on. We look forward to our next visit.

    Needs A Major Face Lift

    This hotel needs significant renovation and improvements in the quality of the rooms and outdoor furniture. The rooms have old, loud air conditioners, flimsy doors and walls and bathrooms with no ventilation. The balcony doors are old and hard to close. Outside, the chairs by the pool are old,dirty and broken. The pool towels are flimsy and stained. There is no wait staff outside offering drinks/food poolside. Given the concern many people have about overexposure to the sun, more umbrellas would be helpful. Also, even after you pay a fortune to get a palapa/chairs etc., you still have to move the chairs yourself! Clearly very short on help. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, except for the team at the front desk. That group needs major customer service training. They told us virtually nothing at check-in and didn't ask whether we enjoyed our stay at check out. They should explain the process for renting chairs, etc at the pool and beach, at a minimum. The staff who cleaned our room were terrific. We got breakfast included. That worked out very nicely. The food was plentiful and the staff very nice. There was a big pot of hot coffee on the table every morning and if we needed anything else, the staff were very attentive. While this hotel is very centrally located, that doesn't make up for its shortfalls. We will not be returning to this resort, but we certainly will return to Aruba. It's paradise.

    Our meal host Juan Miguel was friendly, and, pleasant, and very accommodating. We look forward to seeing him again next year at

    Our breakfast host, Juan Miguel, was always very friendly, and pleasant, and always greeted us with a smile. He always exchanged nice conversation with us, and stated he looks forward to seeing us next year, as we do also. The Holiday inn in Aruba never fails us,

    Servers are the best

    Juan Miguel was an amazing server during our time at the resort. Always friendly and kind, with a laugh. He was extremely helpful with information and very efficient as a server. The variety of food offered was excellent. You could always find something to meet your needs.
