    “Good resort”

    This resort is awesome. The beach in front of the resort is beautiful. The pools in the resort are excellent. Breakfast and lunch the food is good but don’t expect too much, everyday is almost the same. But the dinner is amazing, they have many restaurants to go with different foods. The apartments are clean with a wonderful view to the ocean. The staffs very friendly. They also have many shows every evening.

    “ARUBAS BEST- Barcelo Is where it’s at”

    The grounds and rooms were very well kept. We stayed in rooms 2921-2917 and 2915 Royal Level (Jan 3 ,2018 x 2 weeks) our fave restaurant was the Japanese and second was Italian, we suggest alternating menus for th Royal Club however the quality was exceptional. I suggest however that the timing between courses be faster there were days that it took 30 minutes minimum between servings. The buffet restaurant is the most organized and accommodating however though the quality was always great there wasn’t much variety either. Often meals were cooked with the same sauce and the ONLY thing that changed was the type of protein used. For example the chimichanga sauce variation of one night pork, one night chicken, one night fish. Also for breakfast station I suggest two people making omelettes-one preps the other cooks in order to make it faster. Pool service as well as beach service was great, room service as well as maid service as well. The entertainment crew was outstanding especially the TREASURE show and th Caribbean cirque show as well. I have to compliment the following people for putting a smile on our faces, for showing professionalism and for going over and beyond: Elena and George from the Royal Club The girls and front desk/concierge royal level: Jessica, Lorena and Moheba And the buffet restaurant - Joisy, Eugene and Maryann Thank you from the Veca family!!

    “Aruba Barcelo we love you”

    Our first time in this Hotel and it seems to me the on best on the island. Me and my girlfriend love this place. No discrimination everyone is treated the same . Check-in: quick and smooth. The elderly boss lady at the reception is a very polite lady, she got us our king bed the next day. She promised and kept her word. Thank you . Room: Our room was ok . Very clean and smell realy good. The view was a parking view from the balcony but it was ok , as long a we have a king bed. We took pictures of the sunrise from our room on January 1st 2018 . We party and stayed up till sunrise. We went to sleep and woke up for dinner time . never in years ,but we tried it and it was worthed. We are in our 40s so we are living the young life. My girlfriend works as a police officer so this was the perfect place for her to have some awesome time away from work. Dinner Staff: Friendly jolly, they made you laugh so much , it is nice to see that staff like that would do anything you ask and know the island so much . We went on a island tour that they recoment with the palm tour and we love it. Natasha the guest service manager helped me with a issue i had with my internet and phone she fixed it instantly. she gave me her card to contact her if i should have any issue call her on her cellphone .she Introduce me to her staff david and nathalia and told them to take good care of us , they are one super staff . One of her staff Nathalia who is awsome !!! She said that her manager is always like that and always friendly to everyone and could not see anyone unhappy or else it hurts her . Well when someone wishes you well nothing can go wrong on your vacation . David what a quick bump he has connections at the airport and got us information on traveling with champagne for my dad. Dad was so happy ! thank you david. Glen is funny he is every were he helped us at checkout with our lugguage nice young guy. Food : food is good we are fast eater so we would grab about anything and eat. Too much good food and very fancy. Zutina at the buffet who has been there for years is a very nice lady she work's with a middle age lady i think her name is patricia who is a very friendly and caring person. I don't remember the guys name but he was nice too. Newyears eve was spectacular we had so much fun the resort must have spend a fortune to make a wonderfull dinner buffet and decoration . We are not seafood eater but as meat eater we had so much options. It was raining but nothing could stop the resort and the people from giving a good service and party. We ate at two more restaurant one was the Italian and the other one was either Chinese or Asian. They were really good . Armando and Ernesto are super!! The lamchop was good. At the chinese place we had a waiter that doesn't laugth that much but gave us a good service i guest its a chinese thing , in NY they dont laught that much either lol. We mostly ate at the buffet because it was easy and allot to choose from . The pool bar was so packed everyday but with fun bartenders and tourist . We have a Charlie brown working there he is hilarious. We love Santiago he is a sweetheart . We met friends that live close to our neighborhood. The drinks are a little too strong they should take it easy at the bar. We are from colombia- Puertorico but we grew up in state the so we don't really drink that much. Pool and beach : I love the beach white sand and blue water the sun was not really out that much cause the rain but we had fun at the pool . We sat at the bar watching the rain and drinking our drink. Believe me compairing the weather to what i have now outside anyone would die to be in Aruba . Barcelo is a very clean facility they must pay the employee good to keep cleaning all the time GOOD JOB ON THAT. RESPECT. Entertainment: Fun and not much I guess the rain did it's part there . They did try their best but the rain was coming down like banggg!!! . Pool dj so awesome. Evening show was very nice love it . Lenny my man!!! he sing so good in the lobby. Aruba: The island and the people are beautifull . The resort has alot of Latins work and staying there , I learned my first papimenta word " danky duchi " The resort is close to everything. Shopping and bar hopping are just across the street. even with all that is going on for newyears eve we were treated like five star. We saw the chef and the big bosses , it's noticeable because they are all together and guiding the staff how the work should be done That's when I saw my girl Natasha running around. GOOD JOB GUYS. the hotel and staff was fabulous. They ask me to write a review and I wrote my review with honesty . Hopefully I will able to comeback soon as soon as we save again . But we will be back.
