    “Great Location”

    Enjoyed our stay! Location is wonderful and food and staff were excellent. The only problem was the bathroom. Very difficult to manage the bathtub/shower area. You practically need to climb over a wall in a very narrow space to get into the shower area.. My husband nearly fell a couple of times.Next time, I'll make sure to ask for a room with a walk in shower.

    “Barcelo Aruba”

    All inclusive resort, smaller is better. The entertainment not so good, but close enough you can walk off the resort to other places. Staff and food excellent, super friendly, lots of food choices. and open long hours. For the price i,n room wi fi should be included.

    “LOVE THIS PLACE!!!”

    Super friendly staff from the moment we checked in. SUPER clean facility/pool/beach/grounds/rooms. GREAT food, GREAT staff and especially the servers like Rodell (Speedy Gonzales). He is the best!!!!!! Ask for something, he's back in seconds with it and with a smile. I see other trip advisor comments on "horrible food"????!!! You must be picky or did not explore the possibilities. The place ROCKS!!! Especially the Japanese and Seafood restaurants (the fried calamari is the best I've ever had!) The only negative was that management should set up the omelette station with portable gas burners and add another omelette chef. Wait time were long and that guy worked his ASS off!!!!! How is not obvious when managers are walking around each restaurant which I also thought was impressive. A place to add to your bucket list!!!!!!

    “Great Trip!”

    The reception was very kind and accommodating. Once we arrived our things were taken by the bell boy and the staff served us tropical drinks as we waited to check in. Oti Buddy was very helpful in describing the many activities, restaurants, and fun areas within the hotel. We followed his recommendations for restaurants and family activities on the beach and they were truly extremely fun and something to remember. Can't wait to come back to Barcelo on my next possible trip!
