Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My grade school friend and I wanted a special island to celebrate our 65th, w/ yoga, wine, spa, sun and surf and we found it at Manchebo. All of the staff were so friendly, the smoothies were perfect after a morning of yoga, and steel drums announced happy hour. We walked the beach, but had no desire to venture far because Manchebo had everything we wanted and/or needed. Thanks to all the staff, from the front desk to the waiters, to housekeepers, yoga teachers and spa specialists.
This resort is a quiet little getaway in the Eagle Beach, or low rise section, far enough from the high rises, noise an commotion, while being a short cab or bus ride away from all the action. Though more expensive, you get what you pay for. This is a calmer, more relaxing side of Aruba still having so much to do with some of the nicer restaurants nearby. If one seeks nightlife, it is a short cab ride away, if one seeks tranquility, this is the place to come.I mirror all of the previous positive comments and especially, the ones that say "Dont ever Change". Please never expand or try to change the theme of this place, or crowd more people in, especially the beach set up, it is truly perfect as is, like heaven on earth. And the peaceful retreat I hoped for after reading others reviews,The only suggestions I would have are upgrading the matresses, they are like a foam and in my opinion, too soft for long term stays, but that is my taste. And pease, a little more quiet around the spa and yoga class in the morning, though this is when there is landscaping and restaurant set up. My only other regret is not having more days to stay. I am writing this on my last day here from my Palapa watching the ocean and feeling the warmth of the sun, regretting leaving and already looking at dates to return for next year.This is an absolute must stay. Spa is awesome as well. Any room is good, the Ocean side is a lovely splurge, but the garden side is very zenlike, peaceful and quiet.
I stayed in room 30 (second floor ocean front) with my wife for 5 nights. We had never been to Aruba. This hotel knocked it out of the park for us. It is absolutely true that Aruba is a happy island with friendly people, but this staff takes it to the next level. When you arrive, you are handed cool hand towels to wipe your hands or face and cleanse yourself of the grime of travel. Immediately you feel welcome -- then they offer you a delicious cocktail, on the house, virgin or with the option to have the server add some alcohol; we had delicious rum mojitos and felt excited to be there immediately. The food and bars throughout the resort (small resort, but diverse food offerings) was outstanding. Healthy smoothies, steel cut oats, fresh fish for dinner? Sure! Eggs and bacon, fries and burgers, steak and martinis for dinner? Sure! You can be healthy or indulgent, or both, and no one will judge. The beach is beautiful and beats every other section of beach we saw in Aruba for its width/size, location, and beauty. So much fun to be here. We especially recommend happy hour 5-7p each day, yoga every morning (you get 2 passes per person included in your stay), and Omakase Sushi restaurant right on sight.
This was our first visit to Aruba, and what better resort to choose than the Manchebo! The many exceptional reviews on TripAdvisor really helped us make the decision to stay at this resort - the glowing reviews Manchebo receives are not exaggerated. You are made to feel so welcome by all the staff from the minute you arrive. From the warm greetings on your arrival to your departure when you're provided with a bag of snacks for the trip home, all speak to how much this resort and its staff value its clients (special thanks to Magala for making breakfast and lunch each day such a nice experience, Joan who kept our room absolutely spotless (!) and the many helpful staff at the front desk and excellent wait staff at both Ike's Bistro, the PegaPega Bar and the ChopHouse). The food was excellent at each of the restaurants - dinner reservations were never an issue. We also really loved the musicians who played during dinner at Ike's and the ChopHouse. The beach is absolutely stunning and immediately accessible from our room (#19)! Again, the reviews are accurate - we did not have get up at the crack of dawn to get a palapa or a beach chair. We took taxis into Oranjestad several times ($9-$10 US each way) and went on several excursions - a coach tour of the island and a sunset catamaran cruise - both excursions were a lot of fun! For anyone looking for a relaxing vacation with exceptional customer service, comfortable rooms and great dining, Machebo definitely ticks all the boxes!! We will definitely return -many thanks Manchebo for making our first trip to Aruba such a special one!!
What a wonderful place! Great beach....but most of all....everyone there is committed to making your stay the best ever. Thanks to Jean, Carmen (best bartender anywhere), Ada, Aracelez, and Ana Marie. The kindness and helpfulness of the front desk employees was amazing.....thank you Swinda, Dilia and Sondra. See you again in 2018!!!!!!
