    “Good resort in a perfect location ”

    My 4th visit to this hotel and it did not disappoint. Great location right on Palm Beach in between the Hilton and Hyatt. The beach is absolutely perfect. Great to walk and the water is stunning. Beautiful tropical pool area with swim up bar. Not enough chairs around the pool area for size of hotel, so by 9am all were taken. Rooms were comfortable. Beds were awesome. In-room temp and sealing fan were great. Nice modern bathroom. Had a pool/ocean view room in Tower 2. Had breakfasts and lunches at the buffet and the Beach Club. Definitely enough of a variety. Went out to dinner most nights - you have to go to Madam Jeanette's while in Aruba! Make reservations well before coming via their website. You'll have to drive or take a taxi, but well worth it. Also went to Chalet Suisse, LG Steakhouse and The Driftwood - all great. Went to the Aruban Seafood restaurant at the hotel one night - it was just ok. I was disappointed that we could have gotten grilled lobster tails for an upcharge, but no one told us about these!! Good location outside of hotel with lots of shopping and restaurants. The WiFi in hotel is absolutely horrible! They should really look into fixing this issue. Overall good stay to take advantage of all inclusive alcoholic drinks, lunches and breakfasts, but I would suggest going out to dinner most nights. The food in Aruba is amazing! Check out Baby and Rodgers Beaches one day. Beautiful! Rent a car and explore! Check out Eagle Beach.Great island!

    “October 2017”

    Excited to be heading back to Aruba. We have always experienced the best treatment from Sandra Steba and her staff at the Royal Level team! The Royal Level restaurant is tops in service from all the team there. Looking forward to seeing our friends Perlita, George, Cegar and Edgard in the Royal Level restaurant! Another favorite is the Italian restaurant and looking forward to seeing our friend Francisco! We love Aruba and have made great friends there every year we visit!

    “Honeymoon trip 2017”

    My wife and I recently traveled to the Barcelo to celebrate our honeymoon. The highlight of the trip was a make your own Bloody Mary every morning with breakfast, and being served by renato, the best server at the resort! Overall the resort was subpar, but renato and his morning staff made up for it. - the picture attached is renato, make sure to ask him to catch you an iguana and "microwave the coffee from yesterday!"

    “Fantastic time and wonderful people, beautiful beach”

    Went to Barceló in Aruba on Sept 2-10,2017f for our 39th wedding anniversary and our 9th time being there, and we were placed in the royal tower which was amazing, free wifi, bed turn down bed service , bottle of wine and fresh fruit and a beautiful note greeting us for our anniversary stay, Sandra Steba greeted us with such wonderful warming hug and then the next day Veronica Bernal, amazing wonderful person as well in the Royal Tower, these woman made us feel like a prince and princess at our stay, they truly are amazing, whatever you want whether reservations, being made or strawberries with chocolate, its there! Royal Tower food was amazing, George who is the captain, wonderful and bryan great waiter, actually all of them were terrific, lobster and steak and lamb chops melt in your mouth! What I do really wish is they would truly bring back the pool bingo, it bought everyone together at the pool bar and in the pool, We were really sad it was done on the beach which not many people at all participated, I think one time I heard the jackpot was 20.00, which last year we won pool bingo and we won 130.00 , so there is your difference , we meet the same people every year for 9 years now and we were so disappointed..Please bring it back it was fun , some things are just not meant to be changed,,also the beach bar is no longer there, there is a bar further back, which only serves black royal bands, which wasn't a problem for us but our friends couldn't get a drink which I didn't quite understand that either, I think that should be changed..Food at buffet, if you got there early was ok if you got there late completely dried out , so we were very lucky and blessed to go to the royal diners, but overheard many many complaints, breakfast always good, love the Japanese Zen (Kyoto) at hibachi with Elmo, we love Elmo and the cook I forget his name I apologize was and always is amazing food delicious..we did go to Madamme Janettes and Smokey Joes and Casa Tua across the street from the hotel and right nest to Sopranos for some delicious Pizza served by Juiior who also works by day at the main buffet during the day, very hard worker also of course our wonderful waitress at the main buffet always greeted with a smile and a hug and a joke or song by Ranalto, he is amazing happy person and beautiful Claudia, they are wonderful people.The bartender at the lobby bar Santiago, that man can out do three bartenders, always serves drinks with a smile and delicious, make a great raspberry martini ! Also pool bar bartenders, serve with a smile! .Aruba is amazing, beautiful place to be, it is I call a little piece of heaven to me and my husband We so love it and hope and pray to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary net year there, with out all of these workers our stay would not be as wonderful and we so thank you all..!
