    “My husband and I had a wonderful vacation at Barcelo Aruba.The weather is always good and the staff is the best.”

    My husband and I have been going to Barcelo Aruba for many years now. We have always gotten excellent service from the staff. If you have a problem the staff will quickly resolve it. We have received excellent service from Theo. Rumus, Danilo and several other servers in the Palm. When I think about exceptional service the following people come to mind, Edgard Sufie and his staff in the Palm, Gerald Brown and his staff in the Arubian Seaford and Armando Figario and his staff in Lolio. These staff members go above and beyond to make you vacation more memorable. They are always there to help you and make you feel like family. I would highly recommend this resort to my family and friends.

    “1st time in Aruba”

    Our first time in Aruba and definitely not the last! Island and people are beautiful!! Stayed at the Barcelo Aruba. Don at the front desk was very personable and always willing to help. Misha at the Beach Club Restaurant serves up a mean burger always with a smile and Myrna at Kyoto was always welcoming. Food at the Kyoto was also very good. Overall a very nice hotel with a gorgeous beach front property. Great location with lots to see and do just steps from the hotel. Thank you! Walter and Sandra

    “Greatest Employees”

    The beach in Aruba is always beautiful, but what makes the Barcelo special is the people who work there. Not only do they make you feel at home, they treat you like family. We love Aruba, but keep going back to Barcelo for this reason. Sandra Steba was one of the first people we met, and she is such a hard worker and beautiful person. Can't say enough about Zotina and her beautiful smile. Claudia in the buffet always working hard. Victor and Trevor making sure you're taken care of on the beach. Eugene always there for any concerns. And of course, Ketty and Roland the first and last people we see welcoming us back and seeing us off as we depart. So many other employees doing a great job: Danillo,Theo and Renato in the buffet and Fanny, Dale, Boy, Myrna, Elmo in the other restaurants. Thanks to all the employees for the great job they do to make our time there so special!!
