    My trip to Holiday Inn Sunspree

    So, it wasn't so bad! I read so many mixed reviews, I was really worried. But it's in a great location, right across from a new mall, although the mall doesn't really have much to offer, except a water fountain show at night and a few random shops. Although one thing that was great, they mall does have an internet place that's really cheap, $5 for 30 minutes or $6 for an hour, way cheaper than the hotels and they give you a code that's good for 3 days. Anyway, the first room I was booked in was in the Curacao tower, which is the only tower that isn't remodeled. It is pretty old, def. needs a facelift. The hotel was booked full, but was able to switch the next day, but had to pay a cost of $25/night which I think was worth it and was moved to middle tower, now I can't remember which one the name, but it's the elevator bank directly across from the Little Switzerland store. The food was average, but not bad, although I didn't ever make dinner reservations since I was never up early enough. I did meet a couple that said they didn't feel well after they ate in the Italian restaurant. The buffets were fine, even for dinner. I only got up one morning early enough to get a hut, so if you want shade, but at the towel hut at 7:30 to get one of the 40 or so huts, they're worth it. So, all in all, I would def. recommend this hotel! Thanks for all your input, Lisa

    Well your post puts some of my worries to bed. I just booked this hotel for Dec 26th thru Jan 2 for myself and my 14 year old daughter. I booked a superior ocean view room in the aruba or bonair tower. But after reading all the bad reviews I am really worried. Anything else you would reccommend for my teenager while we are there. She loves to shop, go to the beach and lay out by the pool.
    Thanks so much, Melissa

    If your daughter loves to shop, Paseo Herencia mall is opposite the Holiday Inn. The shops are high end though. There is also a cinema in the mall. Don't miss the water light show at the mall. Times are 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 pm. The Palm Beach mall (behind Paseo Herencia) is scheduled to open tomorrow.

    The building closest to Playa Linda is the Aruba Tower. That tower was renovated first. Bonaire Tower is closest to the front desk. The Curaraco Tower you don't want to stay in. It hasn't been renovated yet.

    The holiday inn always fascinates me... it looks like it is made up of 4 or 5 old hotels all combined into one. There is one building near the casino that looks like it is now storage. It is so weird when I walk by it.

    We've stayed at the Holiday Inn twice (once for two weeks) and loved each time. Everyone was always nice (we were in the Bonaire Towers both times). I'd go back again, except the prices seem to really skyrocket for the All Inclusive which is what we liked about it. Never had any complaints about the Holiday Inn. We would have breakfast and lunch there - then go to MoomBa's for dinner and watch the sunset! Great food and great people. Enjoy!
