A group of 20 of us spent the weekend of the 16th of July, overall experience was wonderful and a few things could be improved upon. When we checked in the front desk reps were friendly, there was a waitress going around with non alcoholic beverages for everyone, the rooms were immaculate upon entry, there was always something to eat and drink, beds were comfy, the bartender was excellent, I don't remember her name but she was fast and wonderful despite the pressure she was under to serve everyone. The food needs to be improved on, no-one showed us to our rooms, we had to figure that out, no toothpaste in the rooms, make sure to bring your own and the lotions were very small too, no-one told us about dinner reservations, that you had to make them a day in advance, we only knew where the adult pool and gym were by walking around, the entertainment at both pools were wonderful for both day and night, it was reasonably priced and Covid protocols were followed by all the employees and not so much by the guests. Overall we had an amazing time and would definitely return, hats off to everyone. Read less

Overall experience and the company was great. Check in was slow because it was a full house weekend but the friendliness of the staff made up for it. Note, it being a full house added to some of the fun. If you went with the family and need a short break from the children I highly recommend the adult side.

Pool is great, Drinks tunn up and the vibes was kicking. Buffet was o.k. but try the Sea Breeze Restaurant i promise you will enjoy. Go to the club! Dance off the food. I was not dissapointed.

Recently visited Holiday Inn with my spouse and I must say it's the most relaxing hotel I have ever been to. Though it doesnt have much to offer in terms of activities/amenities, their service is great. Very clean property and covid measures maintained. We had complementary drinks upon our arrival. The staff is very hospitable and friendly so we never felt like they were annoyed with us at all when we interacted with them. They weren't rushing us to leave the premises either like other hotels. I really loved that although it is a family hotel, they had a section for adults only so parents and other couples without children can unwind. The beach wasnt the best but the service definitely makes up for it. I would definitely visit again and recommend this hotel to others. This hotel was recommended to me and I'm glad I decided on Holiday Inn so am sure others will too. Read less
