    “Cant get enough of this Paradise!!!!”

    As often as I travel to this beautiful Island and wonderful hotel, Barcelo Aruba continues to out do itself making our stay full of perfect memories made. Our vacation would not be complete without the amazing staff who assist from the moment we plan our return throughout our 10 day stay. Sharitza Figaroa, Natasha, and Lorena are the front line in planning and preparing all the fine details making our stay more memorable than the time before and that was just a few months earlier. These fine folks did everything possible to provide perfect accommodations in the most beautiful room in the place. Plans to have us honored as frequent Aruba travelers with ambassador status. I can't begin to thank them enough for all the special effects along with this honoring. My thanks is recommending more and more friends to visit this amazing place to experience the pleasures we get each and every time. Royal level is led by Sandra and the Royal service we receive is beyond expectation. Veronica and her smiling face greets us daily assuring everything is spectacular accommodating our reservations each night for our party of 7. Food at the hotel is very satisfying with many choices to please the palate. Melvin and his team including Elena make mornings delightful for breakfast and lunch. Dinner in Royal is always entertaining with George leading the way. Lunch in the Palm was always pleasing with pasta station and chocolate fountain. Speedy Gonzalez (Rodell) and many other new young wait staff. A special mention to Johan at the outdoor buffet in day and Arubian Restaurant at night was beyond awesome treating us like royalty in a busy setting with kindness and fine attention. Claudia and Lena make sure our room was clean and sparking each day and night. The beautiful beach, white sane and sparking blue water is topped off by special attention from Victor and Santiago keeping our thirst satisfied with tropical drinks. Room service was delivered with a smile by Deneuve. I can go on and on about this beautiful island, the locals who have become our family, the Barcelo hotel and all the fine staff who smile always making each day more pleasurable than the day before. Keep up the good work and we will keep returning. I wish I was able to mention each and every staff member but I would go on forever. Kudos Barcelo for keeping us happy in our Home away from Home! See you soon with new friends!

    “2019”

    Everything about our stay was great. We felt so incredibly welcomed back with champagne and wine and chocolates. One suggestion would be additional umbrellas for those who could not reserve a cabana. It’s difficult For some to get up early or stay up late to reserve so if there were additional options for shade it would help out greatly.

    “Loved it!”

    Very clean htel. We stayed in the Royale level with a great ocean view. Rooms are a touch on the samll side but we weren't in it much. It's a small resort and limited hours on when to eat at the restaurants. Biggest problem is that they allow guests to "save" chairs at the pool and beach area by placing a towel on it. They are limited on room as it is. People go down to the pool and beach area at 3 or 4 in the morning and save chairs. They have signs posted that it's a 2 hour max but it's not enforced at all.

    “A wonderful all-inclusive!”

    This is such an easy place to be. Check in was easy and we got all the info we would need to enjoy our stay. Good food at multiple restaurants on site, and two breakfast/lunch buffets. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Lots of beach butlers to refill your drink! Rooms are nice and beds are very comfortable. The beach is nice, but can be crowded. Many people must get up very early to place belonging at the palapas and to claim beach and poolside chairs, but there is staff on the beach to help find lounge chairs. loved the floating mats, but again, get one early or they will be gone. Fun nightclubs, restaurants and some shopping right across the street. We did two fun tours that we arranged at Depalm tours in the hotel. A snorkeling trip and a Jeep tour of the whole island. Bring a large insulated cup or bottle to keep your drink cold, they’ll keep it full of cocktails, soda, beer or ice water! Fun daytime and evening entertainment and activities.

    “Amazing Honeymoon”

    We spent a week here in the Royal Club for our honeymoon and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! From the moment we checked in with Liza to the great hospitality provided from Melvin in the royal restaurant (maria, lissette, sylvester, elena, mary-ann, lino and eugene were all great too), we were constantly satisfied. The pool is great, the beach even better. Our only complaint is that you can only get premium booze at the royal bar on the beach or the royal level restaurant. The entertainment lacked a little, but we didn't go there for the shows. We went for the R & R and the Barcelo sure hit the spot. Would for sure go back!!
