Aruba vacation

This was our second trip to Aruba and first time staying at the Holiday Inn. We loved it so much! We stayed in the Palm tower on the third floor. The room was quite comfortable and Adella(sp?), at the front desk, got us into a room that was ready 2 hours before check-in and had a king size bed. We did not opt for an all-inclusive stay. Our favorite breakfast spot was a little place call Aromi's. They serve breakfast all day and are located right outside the Palm tower, directly across the street from Starbucks. Our favorite dinner spot was Smokey Joe's. They are catty-corner across the street from Aromi's and do not include a service charge on the bill, so don't forget to tip. We enjoyed the free use of the cruising bicycles. We borrowed them twice to visit the Butterfly Farm and to go on a little road adventure around the hotel area. The fitness center was equipped with more machines than I have ever seen in a hotel gym and it was never overwhelmingly busy. The offering of free classes and activities was a welcome surprise to us. We participated in yoga, introductory scuba lessons in the pool, and enjoyed the musicians. The beach was clean and the attendants were more than happy to help with lounge chairs. Overall, we had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful island

great hotel great stay, most of the staff were friendly. Drinks and food pretty pricey at all the resorts. Right across the street from all the shops, restaurants. Much cheaper to eat and drink off property of the resorts, Unless you have the all inclusive, but then your committed to the resort. Spent one of the days snorkeling with Pelican, staff was awesome showed us a really good time. Would recommend them to anyone. Would recommend holiday inn as well. Beautiful island

Would stay again in a heart beat!

5 of us stayed at the Holiday Inn-one group was later to arrive and Mary at the front desk worked magic and got us connecting rooms. Rooms are spacious-we were in the Sea tower in the first floor. We walked right out our deck to the smaller and quieter pool which made it easy to run back into the room when ever we needed. The grounds were BEAUTIFUL!!!! Lots of beach space and chairs, pools, restaurants and the staff was wonderful! Location also great-right across from lots of shops and restaurants. WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN!
