    “Great vacation for the family.”

    First off let me say the Barcelo had the best beach of all the high rise hotels on the strip. The best sand and maintained beach for sure. I know this because my family walked to both ends of the beach. Now let me say this is my 3rd time here. We come every 5 years for our anniversary. This was the first time we took our 6 year old daughter. She had a blast her new favorite island! But I think the Barcelo fell a little short on this visit. I always ranked 5 every time before this visit. Our room was very nice but a little run down in the bathroom and our balcony door did not move freely always needed to be forced open and closed. This is our only issues with the room. Next the food in the Ala Cart restaurants was very good but the big buffet was awful seemed to lack in that department also was always very warm in there and uncomfortable to eat. So we ate all of our lunches and breakfast in the smaller beach buffet. Was always cooler and the food seemed better but it never changed, it was always the same 6 or 7 things. The entire staff was great to deal with as well. The shows were not as good as they used to be and the entertainment staff was not as active as our previous visits. I really wanted to give a 4.5 but trip advisor would not let me. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others. See you in 5 more years!

    “Wonderful stay Can’t wait to Return!”

    Just got back from Barcelo and it was great. Staff was wonderful. We stayed in the Royal level and it is the way to go. Free WiFi and room service. The staff at check in were wonderful, as they were throughout. The rooms were clean and the bed was so comfortable we wanted to write to the hotel and find out what they use from mattress and bedding! The location is perfect, right in the middle of palm beach. So much to see and do near hotel. Beautiful beach and always got a palapa. The food was the only thing that was just ok. Overall I will book my trip here again next year since I like to eat off resort a lot in Aruba anyways and the hotel comfort and location was perfect!

    “Family vacation”

    The staff was extremely helpful. but buffet breakfast and lunch should get a refresh more variety. The evening restaurants especially Mexico Linda was excellent the food and service. Italian restaurant Lolio not so great

    “Outstanding Vacation”

    I had the pleasure to enjoy a vacation at the Barcelo Aruba resort this past June. My wife and I could not have been more pleased, relaxed and happy with the resort, the staff, the facilities, the food and drink and the beach. Greeting Marilyn when we first got to the resort with her accommodating and friendly smile always starts off our trip on a high note. Our room was spectacular, beautiful view. clean and modernly kept up and outstanding maid service every day. At breakfast every morning, Renato and Beth started our day off perfectly, with world class service and a friendly smile. Let's not forget a dear professional in Sandra Steba who came to beach to greet our family and offered advice and good wishes in every step of our stay. The warm and friendly staff, incredible surroundings and can do team members who work at the resort are world class. Frankie P at the beach is so friendly and such a professional that he anticipated needs for extra chairs before we even asked. It was so nice to be served by the nicest people on this planet. We'll be back again next year and are counting the days before we return to paradise.

    “My Wedding was a Dream Come True!”

    Booking a destination wedding traveling with over 100 people was one of the most overwhelming experiences of my life. Collaboratively, the staff at The Barcelo worked with our wedding coordinator from New York to give us the most amazing experience of our life. From the food, to the decor, to the service, Joally, Jenny, Njurley, Sandra, and their team made every one of my dreams come true! . All the staff at The Barcelo were attentive and truly generous when it came to drinks, food, and service. They made us feel welcomed and appreciated as guests.... Every time I went to the Royal Bar, German had a nice Corona waiting for me to put in my special cup. I could not articulate how amazing our 10 day vacation was at The Barcelo with over 100 people. From the shows, to the restaurants (with Lissette, Melvin, Maria, Elena, and Sylvester), to the open bar, to the music, to the zumba, to the stretching, to the aqua aerobics, to the house cleaning (with Francia), to the Spa, this hotel had it all! I am truly grateful for Joally and her team for making everything happen and for being so diligent in the planning and preparation process. We plan on now traveling again every year with our 100 group party back to The Barcelo.

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking.

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking.
