The elegant Caribbean styled Barcelo Aruba is comprised of two nine-story ocean front buildings. Overlooking the aquamarine sea, guests can relax in the sun, participate in a variety of water sports or try their luck in the casino and dance the night away in the nightclub.

Location: On spectacular Palm Beach, in the heart of the hotel zone, 20 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes to downtown Oranjestad.

Aruba Vacation

Hotel was dirty. Cleanliness was not a priority. Rooms were not restocked with toiletries or mini bar. Hotel Salon staff were clueless. Breakfast and lunch food was below average. Too many options maybe cut down options and make better choices. The breakfast location had too many flies.

Loved it! Cant wait to go back. Only thing annoying was the bad odor by the pool bar. Loved the kayak, floats, and snorkel stuff, it was for free! Staff were amazing besides the royal level bar ppl, they can be rude. Anything else were perfect!

Best Pool and Beach Area

Great property, great beach area, swim-up pool bar, plus all inclusive with 5 restaurants. Off property has shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. A short ca ride or city bus to downtown area gas great shopping and local restaurants. Hop in the Trolley and ride around the downtown local area, or visit two Casinos and try your luck!

Stayed at Barcelo but married on Eagle Beach

The Barcelo was very nice and the staff was very accommodating. The rooms were very nice, clean and relaxing. The food was good at both of the buffets. I only had dinner at the Seafood restaurant and that was ok. I felt very safe at the resort and off the resort. The security at the resort was very adamant about the wrist bands so if you plan to have quests come visit you at the resort beware. The beach was nice but the water wasn't as clear due to the all the boats and motorized sports right there at the resort. I didn't get to experience any of the nightly shows but my daughter (14) and her grandmother enjoyed them.

Excellent location

Normally, I am just 'ok' with all-inclusive resorts but Barceló Aruba was perfect. First of all everyone on staff (and everyone in Aruba) is so friendly. it was a pleasure to be a guest there. Food is available all day as there are plenty of restaurants.....some better than others but all good to great. Our favorites were Oriental and Mexican. There are two buffets and room service as well. The pool is lovely, the alcohol brands are respectable and the activities and entertainment are just enough. In addition there is a lovely area across the street from the resort that stretches about a half mile with tons of food and modest shopping options. You never feel like you're 'stuck' in a resort. If someone said you must complain about something I'd say the ability to get a decent sized 'to go' coffee. In the morning I'd have to go to the self service coffee and get two small Styrofoam cups just to equal half of what I'd normally drink in the morning. Then, throughout the day, unless you go off property, availability of a fresh cup was hard to come by on the resort. When the main bar opened (5 or 6 pm I think), you could get coffee and specialty coffees but again....just tiny little cups. Truly....don't dwell on that because everything was perfect and there is Starbucks available right next door in the Hyatt.....short walk and typical Starbuck prices. As I said the front door takes you to restaurants and shopping. Walking out the back door takes you to a great path....probably close to a mile in total for walking, running, coffee, ice cream, restaurants, entrances to other hotels and resorts....all beachfront and a great morning walk.
