    “Not Great”

    The best thing is the food. The room is horrible. Overnight, the humidity creates a disgusting condensation in the room that when you step out of bed the floor is wet and slippery. This created mildew on the couch (horrible smell) and made the pillows smell like sweaty men. My clothing was damp and my passport book cover was moist and winged out the pages. Needs work desperately!

    “Family vacation 2019”

    Great resort, clean rooms and comfortable beds, great pool with direct beach access, friendly staff, all inclusive is the way to go, buffets are so-so but onsite restaurants are much better and make sure you get up early to reserve beach huts & pool chairs as shade is a premium especially when spending time in the sun all day!

    “Food quality could be better”

    The buffet was ok, if the buffet was between 6 to 11, around 9 you won’t see variety of food. I didn’t like very much the food. The service was too slow. The towels had a musty smell. The curtains did not cover the light well

    “Pleasantly surprised”

    My boyfriend and I selected Aruba as our vacation destination for 2019. Our travel agent suggested Barcelo Aruba although she had never been there, she had heard good things about it from other people who have gone. After checking trip advisory we took her word for it and were pleasantly surprised. We stayed on the 9th floor, the Royal level and we were very happy with our accommodations. But the staff on the Royal level truly made our stay amazing. Thank you to chef Arsenio, George, Ederlina, Joyce, Melvin, Elena, Mary-Ann, Sylvester, Rafael and Nataliya. I know I missed several names but they all were so nice,friendly and accommodating. The Room was nice and clean with a nice view. The resort itself was small so we did not have a lot of walking to do which was nice. Everything was clean, conveniently located and very safe. The weather was very nice and the constant breeze was amazing!! Our biggest complaint would be the fact that you have to wake up very early (5am) in the morning in order to find a place to sit by the pool and with an umbrella. No one wants to do that when you're supposed to be on vacation. Overall, our trip was very nice and we plan on returning in the future!

    “Barcelo resort”

    great value for money. the resort is next to the beach and we didn't have to leave the resort area. good dining experience. The restaurant staff was very friendly. Rooms were not cleaned and we had to call housekeeping each day to get the room cleaned.
