    “Barcelo Aruba major improvements!!”

    Our overall experience was great! Barcelo made some significant improvements since it took over the Occidental with all of its amenities. The beds are of superior quality and comfort. The service on the 9th floor restaurant was perfect. George and the rest of the restaurant staff were always courteous and accommodating to our needs. Across from the restaurant is Sandra and her staff which was very helpful setting up our reservations and making sure we always had what we needed. The beach is amazing. Long strip of sand which you can walk to either side without any vendor disruptions. The water is beautiful turquoise with some areas that had little seaweed but very clean. Alex and Clara at the beach bar were great with their service and making you feel welcome each time as if you were part of the family. We did a few of the restaurants but the one that really stood out was Kyoto. It stood out over the others by leaps and bounds all around. Kudos to Barcelo and its team for making our family vacation and fun and relaxing one!

    “Barcelo-Aruba great combination ”

    Just spent two glorious weeks at the newly named Barcelo all inclusive hotel on Palm Beach Aruba. (Formerly the Occidental)This was my ninth year on Aruba......my little piece of paradise. Located strategically in the middle of the beautiful Palm Beach steps from the beautiful ocean that surrounds the leeward side of Aruba. Great hotel, great location, amazing personal service with attentive caring staff that can't do enough to make your stay perfect. The FIRST CLUB staff including Ivette, Marolyn, and Belinda and SANDRA of the Royal Club are as good as it gets for service professionals that will insure for you a perfect vacation. Barcelo already has renovated the Lobby BAR and Casino. They also renovated the fitness center which really needs to be made somewhat larger but the new company appears to be dedicated to reinvest and improve the property. I would be less than candid if I did not bring up that the all inclusive food is not on par with this beautiful property and their wonderful staff. The Four Specialty restaurants, Italian, Asian, Mexican, Aruban and the two buffets are average at best. The Island generally has really good restaurants so it is very disappointing that Barcelo as an all inclusive does not make it a priority to elevate the quality of their food. Based on the improvements I have seen so far from Barcelo, I will remain cautiously optimistic that they will offer better food soon. Right now my opinion is that the food is just adequate but even with the food issue, I still had a wonderful vacation, at a reasonable price, at a top notch facility, in an amazing location on beautiful Aruba.

    “ARUBA GREAT-BARCELO ?”

    The Pros,The Cons.-Cons first.Please bear with me ,I do not like all-inclusive .The Food.-Your are a captured audience so the hotel has no incentive but to serve what I consider to be mediocre selections at best.I see a lot of people load up plates with food ,so I must be in the minority but bear with me I come from a culinary mecca where quality food is commonplace.Suggestion,spend a couple bucks and try a real Arubian restaurant,I'm sure you will love it.An all-inclusive encourages ,in some not all,the excess consumption of alcohol.This leads to drunks staggering down the hallways at all hours,uncontrolled screaming at the pool/beach and pounding at your door at 2 am.Not what I call fun.The hotel,knowing the environment it has created ,has the responsibility to have adequate security.It does not.The last time I looked the hotel was rated 24 out of 37,that should say enough.The Pros.PEOPLE<PEOPLE<PEOPLE.The people working at the hotel are the best.LOCATION>LOCATION>LOCATION.Second to none,convenient to everything.The BEACH,Best in Aruba.The HOTEL-Trying to upgrade appearance.Keep it up.And Aruba itself-A great place to vacation.

    “Our Second Home”

    Been coming to this resort for 20 years. 2-3 times a year. Since Barcelo has taken over seen some nice changes. The reason we come back thow is for your workers. They are the best. Staring with the first club Marolyn, Evette, Belinda let's not forget Sandra from the royal club. These girls would do anything to make sure you have a great vacation. Now we have the great bartenders. Eric, Erick, Maricar,Erwin, Ceasar,Roddy,Allen Michael Paris, Francesco nataly just to name a few but they all are great. Than we have all the wonderful servers Theo, Patty, amaryllis,Merry, Doris, Elizabeth, Sherwin, Fanny and our hostesses Zotina and Anna. Again just to many to mention. The Italian restaurant servers and of coarse Armando. As long as Barcelo keeps there wonderful staff that will always be a great resort. The only problem is must improve your food menus . Since Barcelo has taken over a big improvement but needs a little more. Thank you all for always showing us a wonderful time. Will be there 4 times this year. Grace and Patrick

    “Beautiful hotel and location”

    We have come to Barcelo many times. We were pleased that they had made some upgrades since our last visit. The rooms and the beach are it's best features. I would say the Italian restaurant is the best place to eat. The staff is always friendly and helpful. If I had one complaint, it would be that they only give wifi for one hour per day in the lobby to guest unless you stay in the Royal Club. Otherwise you have to pay $45 per week per device. In modern day, wifi should be free especially in a high end hotel.
