Family vacation

The hotel is in a great location. We stayed in the ocean tower which was steps away from the beach. The lobby has been recently renovated and is very nice. The outside appearance is very outdated and the casino looks old. The inside of the room was ok nothing special. This hotel is a great if you are looking for a good value. The other hotels are thousands of dollars more expensive. For the location and price it's a great hotel.

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!

Great amenities and service with good price.

Nice location, good food (a little pricey), nice ambience, smiley staff, confortable and spacious room. We loved to stay in the jacuzzi and at the front beach to watch the sunset. It was an enjoyable experience! Highly recommend.

B55 Restaurant - Pros: Good ambience with a nice view, half the price of Oranjestad and Palm Beach (menu is in florins, not us dollars) and VERY tasty food (beef, chicken, fish...). Cons: grumpy staff and far from the main hotels (after the airport). I do recommend though.

Awesome vacation

Everything about this vacation exceeded our expectations. From the time we checked in until the time we checked out, we were impressed with the service and the accommodations. We would definitely return to Aruba and stay at the Holiday Inn Sunspree. We highly recommed one of the Jeep tours of the island as well as a catamaran sail and snorkel that goes near the lighthouse and right over the Antilla shipwreck. Both experiences were affordable and memorable. The beach at the Holiday Inn was not crowded and was very clean. It was extremely helpful to have free internet access from our room.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The all inclusive package was definitely the way to go. The restaurants offered enough of a variety that we never went off the resort for any other dining experience.

Great Staff! Great Beach! Great Location

We have stayed at numerous resorts in Aruba. The HI Sunspree Aruba has a family friendly atmosphere, a great location and a great beach! While there are many more expensive resorts, we think HI Sunspree Aruba has everything (or is close to everything) anyone could want or need while staying in Aruba!
