    “Better places than this”

    The room was okay. Spacious and clean. The location is very nice. A good boardwalk along all the resorts to get some long walks in, easy access to An area with interesting restaurants and shopping. It is easy to get into town from the resort a quick cab ride or public transportation which is clean and frequent The meals throughout the resort were mediocre at best. Breakfast buffet is okay with god choices and the staff making omelettes are good but dinners are not up to an appropriate level. Mediocre at best would be a kind way to describe the meal quality. There are nearby restaurants on the strip or in town which are much better. The resort claims there is no beach reservation policy for the palapas (tiki hut) but even when getting to the beach at 5:30 a.m. most are already reserved. I would go back to Aruba anytime but not this resort.

    “Look somewhere else ”

    This hotel is no more than a 3/3.5 star hotel. My husband and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary trip and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. We chose this hotel as it’s all inclusive in a prime location but this hotel is not worth your money and the reviews are misleading. Our room was filthy; the curtains had stains, vents looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in years, splatters on the doors, the tub needed to be scrubbed. The room had a terrible odor. These are things that we shouldn’t of had to asked to be cleaned. The bathroom is awkward; the vanity is TINY and the door opens in a weird way leaving no space in the bathroom. The hotel was leaking when it rained. The buffet had the same food every single day. The same music played at the pool over and over again. There are definitely not enough lounge chairs at the pool. If you’re not at the pool by 7:30 am, you will not find chairs. However, there were plenty of lounge chairs at the beach and the beach is gorgeous but all the hotels are on the same beach. I hate to leave a bad review but in all honesty, this hotel is not worth your money. Please look somewhere else..

    “Not a resort for you if your looking for excitement!”

    If your looking for fun, exciting & entertaining this is not the place for you! If you want quiet & just relaxing then this is definitely for you! The distance from the beach is Great. There are not enough chairs at the pool to accommodate the guests, or enough huts at the beach for anyone who would like some shade. The umbrella rentals are not part of the resort, so it costs $30 for one.

    “My stay at Barcelo Aruba”

    Had a fantastic vacation with friends and family. The staff there welcomes you like they are my family I brought family and friends with me and they too think the accommodations and the people who work in allvthe restaurants on the premises are super. The warm smiles and they serve you without wait! I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great vacation.

    “Just OK”

    Didn't like when you walk in to the hotel and it smells like stale cigarettes. Food was just ok. Looks like it sits out for too long. Restaurants were good. Make sure you are booking the right room. We ended up with 2 full beds instead of a king. After complaining they changed our room the following day. The excursions by The Palm were awesome!!!
