    “Bucket list vacation ”

    A beautiful island to visit where the weather is always beautiful. In the hot weather the tradewinds keep you cool. The sea is an amazing color of blue, so serene to swim and snorkel. The beach is soft sand although the first step into the sea is a doozy. Barcelona is an all inclusive hotel with nice rooms and a wonderful staff. The food is good although not great and the alcohol flows freely. The pool and surrounding area is beautiful but don't think it's a quiet place, there is always something going on from aerobics in the pool to the pool games and dancing, the staff is always entertaining. Away from the hotel you can scuba, go parasailing, hike or go ATV'ing. A great place to let it all hang out and relax.

    “Great honeymoon”

    We had a wonderful time at this hotel. We are part of the first club. Tony, one of the bartenders at the first club, was amazing. So helpful. Best bartender I have ever had by FAR. Drinks were too strong at the lobby bar and pool bar. Stuck with the first club bar the whole week. Food was great. Mexican needs help however. Staff is so friendly.

    “Another Great Vacation at the Barcelo Aruba”

    This was our 13th trip to Aruba and our 3rd time staying at the Barceló Aruba Royal Level. This is our favorite place in the world! Aruba is the safest & most beautiful place we have ever been and everyone you meet is extremely nice and helpful. What makes it extra special is the staff at the Barceló Royal Level. They are like family to us because with all the people who vacation there, and there are many, the staff remembers us and always go out of their way to help us any way they can. Of course they are extremely nice and helpful to everyone. But it is like a special bond we have. Every time we leave, I get a bit sad because I know I will miss them & hope that the same staff will be there for our next visit. Lissette & Elena, (our special lovely girls), George, Harold, Andrew, Ederlina, Sylvester, and Maria are very special people of the Royal Level Restaurant. While being extremely professional, they are kind and thoughtful. Also Marco, Diego, and Victoria, our Royal Level Concierges who help make us feel at home & also go out of their way to make sure everything is just so and to our liking. They are all such hard workers and care about their patrons. I could go on and on about the Royal Level Staff but the other staff is also wonderfully friendly. The Barceló changed from the Occidental Aruba and I was worried that the change would not be good, but I think it is even better. The huge lobby bar with chairs, tables, and a dance floor was incredible. Every night there is either Lenny, the singer, or someone else to entertain you. Then of course there is the DJ when the entertainment leaves for the night. The dance floor is very large so everyone can get up and dance. Not to mention the wonderful shows that go on in the ballroom every night. I don't know if anyone knows this but the nightly entertainers also work during the day at the resort so they are very hard working people. Kudos to all of them for doing such a great job. The pool is fantastic and the beach is as well. We were always able to find beach chairs wherever we wanted them and chairs at the pool as well. There are so many restaurants to choose from but my very favorite is the Japanese and the Royal Level. I loved that there was a beach bar for the Royal Level. It is so convenient as well as the pool bar. It was a special occasion for us because we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the staff made it extra special for us buy honoring us with pie and cake and singing Happy Anniversary. What a wonderful surprise. We will always come back to Barceló Aruba with God willing. Our favorite place in the whole world! One Happy Island!! In our hearts there is no other place for us.

    “Best Massage Ever”

    We just returned from Aruba. We actually stayed at the Marriott because we were on a promotional package, but we walked up to Barcelo for our massages. This is the best massage in Aruba. It is called the New Image Health Center. Everything from how you are treated at the front desk to the massage itself is top shelf. We had Valarie and LucMarina, but our friends had other therapists and also loved the treatment. We went back twice. We are staying at Barcelo in November and will make this our first stop.

    “50+ Girls Week”

    We arrived at the Barcelo Aruba after noon and were greeted with champagne at check in. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. We did not meet any staff member that was rude or unpleasant the whole week we were there. The rooms were sufficient, clean, nice beds. Maids serviced 3 times a day, plenty of clean towels and even Hershey Kiss every night at turn down service. This truly is an all inclusive- beach towels, mats to float on all day, chairs and shade huts, boat ride to the Lighthouse, all alcoholic drinks, including champagne, specialty restaurants- just need to make reservations- nightly shows, all included. Located in an area with shops and restaurants of the complex. A wide variety of foods were available at all meals in the buffet area and all was tasty. Activities were very well run and the activities crew were a fun, energetic group. The pool and swim up bar was nice. Only 2 disappointments- 1. WIFI was only free for an hour a day or there was a fee which was prorated based on how many days you would use it. 2. No child curfew- small children were in the lobby bar/casino dance floor at 11:00 when adults would like to listen and dance to the DJ or performer and were not able to because of the small children. I would definitely choose this resort to visit Aruba again.
