    “Second visit”

    This was our second trip to the Happy Island and to the recently renovated Barcelo. There were many upgrades to the resort from our original stay (2015 - Grand Occidental). The customer service is outstanding. Every staff member went out of their way to ensure we had what we needed. I was a little disappointed that they did away with the Beach Party, but we went to the Circaribe show (unsure of name - it's an acrobatic show) and it was excellent. They provided table service and the show was interactive and very entertaining. We didn't stay long enough to go to a show every night, but I was very impressed with the show we did watch. We took our 4 children on this trip (ages 12, 9, 6, and 18 months). They had an excellent time, but we never made time to take advantage of the kids entertainment. They had a nightly "mini disco" for them with music and games and the Kids Club. I never made time to take them to those things as they had a great time splashing in the pool or on the beach. My oldest wasn't thrilled about the lack of complimentary wifi, but it did help add to some quality family time. The resort is very family-friendly and is truly welcoming. We will definitely be returning for our 3rd and more visits in the future!

    “Barcelo aruba Royal Level worth every $”

    Royal level is wonderful and worth every S. Music by the pool needs lots of work. Same songs every day on continuous play. Bartenders at swim up bar were wonderful. Buffet needs an upgrade. Buffet food was terrible.

    “GREAT PLACE with GREAT LOCATION and GREAT STAFF”

    The best part of the Occidental Aruba is the great staff members that they have and that have been there for many years. Where do I begin -- Veronica and Hazel have the Royal Club covered and I totally agree that the Royal Club is worth it. In the restaurants and bars, you have Angela, Tony, Michael, Paris, Meriam, and Steve taking care of you. The food in the Italian restaurant is terrific along with the great experience. I suggest making one night out on the patio with the sunset at 7pm. The Royal club dining room was very good -- it could use a few more menu selections but it was nice that there was a different chef special each night. The desserts in the Royal dining room were incredible!! There really aren't any bad rooms at this hotel. Even if you aren't on the pool side, each and every room can see the water and what beautiful water it is!! The beach is great. The pool is great -- except that they have started allowing (or did allow) floats and diapers in the pool -- not a good thing!! We will be back but I hope they pay more attention to the pool.

    “Perfect anniversary trip!”

    My wife and I just got back from a perfect 40th wedding anniversary trip to the Barcelo in Aruba! We contacted the wonderful manager Martin Middledorp before our stay and secured reservations at the fantastic specialty restaurants for all 6 nights of our stay. We loved them all, especially the seafood and Italian restaurants with exquisite outdoor dining areas. The staff could not have been nicer and our room had a perfect view of the beach and pool area and a lovely deck. The room itself was spacious with luxurious beds and bath. We got up early each day and were able to "reserve" a palapa at the gorgeous beach (best of all the hotels in our opinion). Could not recommend the Barcelo more highly and look forward to returning!!

    “Enjoy!”

    Lovely place by the ocean. Lots of fun to be had. The staff is easy to work with and very pleasant. The rooms were very clean. The air conditioning in the room needs to be regulated because it blew so hard no matter what setting. It felt like a hurricane. The food was plentiful. Breakfast was the best meal. The other meals need an up grade. Stores,bars and a casino all available in the hotel.

     Dear 463murrayp, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. Certainly it looks like there are still some areas that need to be worked on. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to work on these and improve our services. We hope that you will visit us again in the near future in order to show you the improvements.
