Holiday Inn Resort Aruba Sets Hurricane Protection For 2013

‘Risk-Free Hurricane Guarantee’ Safeguards Consumer Resort
Stays During Hurricane Season

The Holiday Inn Resort Aruba announced recently that it will once again safeguard resort stays at the property in 2013 by reinstating its Risk-Free Hurricane Guarantee. A complimentary benefit applied to all resort stays throughout the Atlantic Hurricane Season – June 1 to November 30, 2013 – the Risk-Free Hurricane Guarantee affords guests the following protection:


Guests holding confirmed reservations with nonrefundable deposits who are unable to travel due to the closure of Reina Beatrix Aruba International Airport caused by a Category One or higher hurricane can rebook their reservations without penalty. A one-category room upgrade will also be provided based on space availability (excludes suites).


Should a Category One or higher hurricane interrupt resort operations for more than 24 hours, guests already on property will receive a certificate valid for a free future stay. Certificates will be valid for resort stays equal to the number of days that hotel operations are interrupted as determined by the resort. Certificates must be redeemed within one (1) calendar year from the date of issuance at the same resort where the original stay occurred. Free future stays will be awarded subject to space availability and certain blackout dates may apply.

The Risk-Free Hurricane Guarantee is valid for U.S. bookings only, excluding groups, and is subject to change at any time. For reservations and more information, visit, or call toll-free at (855) HINN-AUA (855-446-6282).
