    “Amazing Stay”

    My wife and I had a fantastic stay at the Barcelo. The size of the resort was perfect for us as it was easy to find everything we wanted. Food was great no matter where we went to eat. The Barcelo staff was amazing. Trevor took great care of us every morning making sure we had the perfect spot on the beach. Special shout out to Guest Services, especially Farrah and Martin, if we needed something they provided. Five great days, already looking forward to our next stay.

    “Definitely not a 5 star hotel”

    This hotel is very outdated. The rooms are beat up. We booked 2 double bed rooms with ocean view instead we got 1 double and 1 king with view to the parking lot!!! The closet door in one room was broken. When we asked to change rooms the staff refused to help us they were very rude!! we even talked to the manager - Martin - who said that they are fully booked! It didn’t even seemed like they are looking for a solution or compensation for our situation. On top of all that 3 out of 4 nights We didn’t have hot water between 7 PM to 9 PM which made us cancel some of our dinner reservation. We called every night to the front desk and they used to send someone to check if the water are really cold! I mean come on what 5 star hotel runs out of hot water ?!?! We came back 2 days ago and we were promised that the manager will contact us within 24 hours about a compensation. Still waiting! The only Pros about this hotel is the location.

    “Feels like a family at Barcelo Aruba!”

    This was our first time visiting this amazing island of Aruba. We decided to give Barcelo a try because we liked the idea of having the all-inclusive option for the food and alcohol. We opted for the Royal Level which was great because it included so many great things like private check-in, access to Royal Level restaurants, and of course premium alcohol. And let me tell you they had everything. I'm a margarita drinker and my drinks were made with Patron and Grand Marnier. My husband drinks Captain Morgan and diet coke and they had that as well. Also they had a good selection of beers like corona, bud light, and heineken. The food was decent, the best being the Italian restaurant. The lamb chops and the spinach ravioli were awesome. Make a reservation ahead of time if you're there during peak season. Honestly we ate most nights out either across the street or up at Faro's (which was AMAZING). We took advantage of breakfast and lunch and alcohol at the hotel. We really didn't want to be held to any schedule or reservation so we liked to play it by ear. Trust me it's hard to leave the beach before the sunset because it's so relaxing and beautiful. The staff is amazing. From the housekeepers to bartenders all the way up to the ladies at the Royal Level are all super friendly and make you feel like part of the Barcelo family. We met a lot of great time-share owners that have been coming there for 20 plus years and it's easy to see why! We will definitely be back again soon! If you're considering this resort there is a FB page called I Love Barcelo Aruba Group and that was very helpful for planning and seeing pictures and videos of the hotel!
