Nice hotel but.....

Great hotel and grounds. Staff was not friendly and the food was terrible. Not good for a All Inclusive hotel. Also if you want a nice casino this is not the place for you. Careful of the spa, they are either amazing or deadly.

Couples anniversary

The hotel overall is good but the food is very sub par. My gf and I had to go out to eat because the food was so bad. I would recommend this hotel just not the food. The staff was very nice and the rooms were very nice as well.

Fantastic resort on the most perfect beach in Aruba

Our stay at Barcelo Aruba was exceptional - it always is. We have been going to Aruba for almost 3 decades and have seen many changes on the island as well as this resort. We love the romantic ambiance of Barcelo and its perfect beach location. The rooms are beautiful and beautifully kept. The great staff makes Barcelo truly memorable. They are the heart of this resort. We stay at the Royal Club and Sandra Steba, the manager, along with Veronica, always take great care of any need that arises during our stay. They are exceptional! The staff at the Royal Club Restaurant make you feel extra special, too. Melvin the daytime manager and George, the evening manager, provide wonderful service and always make us laugh. The food there is delicious. The restaurants on site are all very good. We especially enjoy L'Olio (Italian). Edgard takes great care of us there. The Royal Kyoto (Asian) is another favorite. Make your reservation for the Hibachi table early since it books up fast. The chefs are fun and entertaining. The manager, Gerald, will take great care of you. There is lots to do in, around and near the resort, too. Nightly entertainment by the dance staff is included in your stay and they will delight you with their talent. The various bars around the resort will make sure you are never thirsty and the bar staff is excellent. Santiago and Randy at the Lobby Bar will keep the drinks coming. Beautiful resort, beautiful beach, exceptional service. Relax, Barcelo has it all.

Beautiful Beach and Great Resort

Beach is outstanding even though getting a good spot can be challenging you have to be early. Buffet food is decent enough and the restaurants are great. Sit outside at seafood and Italian restaurant. Both have great food. Hibachi, Japanese and Mexican also very good. Cervichi at Mexican was great. Pool is a bit small and not incredibly kid friendly. Rooms overlooking pool and ocean have an excellent patio view. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Location of the resort is perfect you can walk the strip which comes to life at night. Wifi is an issue and drinks could be stronger but everything overall the resort is a great vacation.
