    “Wonderful honeymoon”

    The staff are so friendly and make you feel at ease. All the restaurants are really nice with a good range to suit most tastes, even the standard buffet restaurant has themed nights so you get quite a good variety. The alcohol selection with the all inclusive is really good, even brand names are included. The rooms are impeccably clean and the mini bar is free and replenished daily with sprite, Coca Cola, local beer and water. Since it was our honeymoon we paid extra to have dinner on the beach, a 4 course meal including a bottle of champagne, surf and turf, A big heart shaped chocolate cake to share to finish - what a special way to watch the sunset. Thank you to all the staff who made our honeymoon extra special

    “Exceptional”

    This was the best vacation. The barcelo and its staff were outstanding. Especially Marco, Veronica, Hazel, amd Daniel. The food variety was great as well. I would greatly recommend the Barcelo Aruba all inclusive.

    “Aruba Barcelo 2017”

    The resort was recently updated; the casino is smaller and there is a bigger lobby seating area. Our room was also recently renovated with upgraded furniture, flat screen tv, and a kitchenette. The bed was a little bouncy but very comfortable. The theme restaurants exceeded expectations - the Aruban, Italian, Oriental, and Mexican were all excellent, with great service. Service was slow in the main buffet restaurant, and at the pool bar. We are first club members, that didn't seem to matter from a service perspective anymore, although the first club itself has been moved, expanded, and is much nicer than before. The beach bar is gone, although people will bring you drinks periodically. Overall, a nice vacation at a great resort; would have been all five stars if the service was a little better.

    “It's what you'd expect”

    Pros: The staff is very friendly. The grounds are beautiful. The beach is breathtaking. The Mexican and Hibachi Restaurants are very good. I was always able to find an available cabana on the beach. Centrally located. Floats included. Loved the mattress. Cons: The pool bar was always out of alcohol. I mean, basic alcohol (ie: rum, vodka, etc). The hotel ran out of towels. The Italian and Seafood restaurants were painfully disgusting (found broccoli in my Husbands rum and coke). The casino is SMALL and smoky. The lady running the outside Towel Hut was miserable and hated providing us with towels. Floor of our bathroom was filthy and covered in someone else's hair when we arrived. Tips: Book your dinner reservations when you first get there. Tip the beach staff and bartenders when you first get there or else you won't see them again. Overly: We had a great trip and the beauty of the beach and the friendliness of the staff made up for a lot the short comings. It's what you should expect from an all inclusive at this price range.
