    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.

    Good

    The superior room we stayed at was very comfortable, nice king-sized bed, very comfy. I was told all rooms at the hotel are superior. Idk why they advertise other standard rooms. Close to beach, nice choice of meals at Iguana´s Bar and Grill as well as the Pelican Pier, wide variety of water sports and activities, poolside bands, etc.

    The hotel is divided into 2 or 3 towers, Bonaire and I can't recall the other one. Anyhow the Bonaire tower (which is the one we stayed at) is the smoking one and the carpet looks as though it hasn't been replaced in 30 years. Smells awful, like an ashtray, the front desk clerks are all extremely rude (idk why!!!! they treated all the tourists in a non-courteous manner, rude and even cocky!!!!! Real shame!!! I've always lodged at Holiday Inns all my life, something to look into!!!! Outrageously expensive gift shops and business center services such as internet (yet all of Aruba is anyhow, but I'm talking $25 mugs, $1 a minute internet in the business center, $15 souvenir keychains), but guess that's not hotel's fault. Our bathroom/shower drain was clogged upon our arrival, but it was corrected within 6 hours. Iguana's Bar by the pool on the other hands offers good food at "reasonable" prices.

    Fabulous

    The staff at the HI Palm Springs were very friendly. The beach was large and white. I loved watching the pelicans dive for fish. The palapa (thatch beach umbrella) reservation system was a bit of a chore but if you want to spend the day at Palm Beach then buck up and embrace it. Strategize! First scout out the palapa numbers that look best to you and make note of them. Second get in line at 3:00 with a book or a friend or a drink to sweeten the wait - if you wait till 3:30 you will be standing in the sun rather than sitting in the shade. The line starts moving quickly right at 4:00. Tell the beach guys the numbers you want or take a place next to one of those. If you don't have a number in mind then be very specific about what you want - near the pool, right at the shore. I tried asking for a "relaxing" spot but they aren't mind readers and don't know what relaxing means to me (quiet and by the ocean) so they put me at the back of the beach near the path. Things move fast though and once they give you a number that's it - be happy. Even if the location isn't your dream spot you will have your own shady palapa reserved through the whole day - that's nice. Also the live music in the evenings was good. We loved the trumpet player.

    This location is very good IF you want to stay right in the middle of gringo-landia and shop at your favorite US stores across the street and eat at your favorite US restaurants. However, if you want to find unique Aruban culture or natural beauty then rent a car and get away from the entire tourist strip.

    Location was excellent. Kids club was amazing. Pools lovely!

    If kids eat free, tell people on the first day! We were one of many who were told on our final day!

    This location is perfect and the grounds and facility are spotless. Convenient to great food and a beautiful view from the many sea side spots to swim or relax.

    Good

    The cleanliness and location of the place. You were not limited to the Hotel grounds as there was shopping and other dining options within walking distance. The location was also very safe and pedestrians were very helpful in terms of getting around

    It was a little bit costly in terms of dining and Hotel reception could have been a little more welcoming. Additionally, the dining options were fast food only. I was hoping for an option of local cusine

    Fabulous

    Location and breakfast.

    The system with the beach towels was a nightmare. From 3.15pm you had to make the queue in the heat at the towel hut, which opens at 4pm, in order to book an umbrella and sun beds for the next day. If not they say that at 10.30am the next day they would have a review at the bookings and you still would get an umbrella at that time. No way!!! People who booked at 4pm would place their towels early morning the next day. Many of those would not turn up at all and the sun beds would stay empty the whole day!!!! Although we mentioned this issue to the pool guys, they told us every day the same thing: sorry, this is how it is. One morning my wife was not even allowed to stay under the palm tree, she was sent away in a very impolite way. The pool guy told her that even the shadow was booked. Shame! Unacceptable since we had the most expensive room, ocean front and were able to see exactly what was going on from our balcony. Also others were complaining. We stopped trying and enjoyed wonderful days at other beaches where we were treated in a very nice way and where we could use sun beds with a very good price. Our advice to Holiday Inn: change your system and don't spoil your reputation.
