    “Disappointing”

    The staff at the hotel from the front desk personnel to housekeeping were lovely and the rooms were clean but in need of some TLC. There are not enough chairs around the pool. WiFi was terrible. Buffets were average to good. The restaurants were just fair. Wine selection was awful and the 'Tanqueray' Gin was tasteless. The tropical drinks like pina colada's were tasty.

    “misleading”

    You book an oceanview room and you get there and your view is a parking lot. I have people that booked for there daughters 21st birthday and this is what she got. also someone booked paid in full and when they arrived they charged them again. when he got his refund back from being overcharged he got back less money.

    “My stay in Barcelo”

    I stayed in the beginning of the month. For starters, at first they could not find my reservation, I panicked at first but luckily Jenny searched with her reservation department and found it. She apologized and called the next day to make sure everything was fine. So happy she cared for me. I hope she reads this message and thank you once again for checking up on me! Later then we went to make dinner reservations and the girl Farah told us everything was full, she kept telling us to pass by untill 4pm and not even trying to help out as if she was being bothered by us. Luckily when we came back at 4pm there was the gentleman I think his name is Jeffrey who made us reservation and booked the rest of the days for us. He also gave us some opinions in restaurants outside and was very lovely. Our rooms were very comfy and clean. We had a room on the 4th floor and had a nice view. We had a bottle of wine and chocolates. The food was fine, the best one is italian for sure, and the drinks can get you tipsy right away. LOL! In breakfast area Rodell was super nice and checking if we needed anything. And obviously my boy Trevor who always got us our beach chairs and always was there to help. Beside the little rocky start everything was wonderful. Sure will be back with the family next year.

    “Barcelo Aruba was phenomenal!! ”

    We stayed at the Barcelo Aruba hotel with family and friends during Christmas break and I have to say it exceeded our expectations. The food was great the breakfast buffet had everything you eat for breakfast and more! The lunch in the palm was different everyday even the kids enjoyed the pasta station along with the kids station with chicken fingers and pizza. The grill also had nice salads. Dinner was amazing at all the restaurants, We loved the Asian dinner along with the hibachi show, the Italian had a new menu but who doesn’t like Italian food??, the Mexican had a nice atmosphere with very nice servers! The seafood restaurant was my husbands favorite!! Entertainment was late but by the time we finished enjoying the beautiful beach all day there was no rush so we would make it to dinner than the entertainment shows! There was even fun games by the beach and pool all day! I have to thank Jessica, Lorena, Njurey and Demmis for making our stay joyous! Anything we needed they went above and beyond for my family. We will be booking for 2020 very soon!!

    “Aruba Jan 2020”

    Fantastic Resort and Fun for all! Food was Great and Plentiful, Staff was very friendly and Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Very easy to get from Airport to the Resort...from the time we walked into the front door, the Staff seem to make all our troubles go away! I really liked the Barcelo! Only one small complaint which is kids were seen sitting at the pool bar...this should be discouraged by the Staff. Overall, I was very satisfied!
