    “I❤Aruba”

    This place is beautiful. This Happy island sells itself with the beautiful beaches. What made our experience great was staying at Barcelo. When we arrived they had welcome drinks for us as we checked in. Although our room wasn't ready it wasnt such a big deal because they accommodated our bags which gave us an opportunity to explore. We found the shops,The restaurants-which were 4.. Italian, Japanese, Mexican, and Arubian seafood, where you can make a reservation to 1 every night for dinner. And we found the kids club since we traveled with a baby.. Unfortunately the baby was too little to stay with the girls in the club during the day they were friendly and made sure the baby had toys to play with on the beach in the day but they had a kids disco playtime at night where my son had the time of his life with Juju- she is so sweet and friendly my son loved her! The rooms and bathroom were spacious and clean- housekeeping does a great job everyday. Our room service guys-Daniel & Eugene were fast and friendly. For a mommy with a 1 year old trying to relax and have some fun some of the servers and Bartenders like Victor, Francisco, Armando and the other servers that I didnt get the names of were so helpful and attentive that we all had so much fun. Armando actually saw us at dinner and remembered it was my boyfriend's birthday so he told the server to sing Happy Birthday and it was a good surprise. I also wanted to thank Mike Rivera and the other guys that were in charge of activities and entertainment. Mike's zumba class on the beach was a fun workout, his super smile and friendly demeanor won over my son as well. I love how all the guys put a fun and positive attitude into making sure the guest are having a fun time especially during the dance partys🕺 they had so many other activities- aerobics in the pool, bingo on the beach, volleyball in the pool. You could take part in these activities or just relax on the beach where Victor will happily bring you some drinks. Then walk over and hang out in the pool where we met a lot of people and my baby made friends with people of all ages. All in all..Let's just say I fell in love and definitely want to go back. This place is great to go with friends, with family, with kids. Whoever goes will have fun! Thanks to all at Barcelo.

    “Sun, Sand, Drink...Repeat”

    Very clean and well maintained resort. Beautiful beach, not too crowded. The buffet food was good, had a lot of selection. The Italian restaurant was the best, good wine too. Friendly staff. I would recommend this resort.

    “A great vacation and anniversary experience.”

    When we arrived, champagne and chocolates were waiting in the room(our anniversary compliments of the hotel) ALL of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Room comfort was exceptional. All the facilities(pool,bars lounge etc) were great. Especially the entertainment in the lounge of the vocalists on Saturday,Sunday and Tuesday nights.
