Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My wife and I stayed at Manchebo for the first 5 days of our honeymoon as we heard it was a quiet resort where we could unwind after the stress of the wedding. We did not get the all-inclusive since Aruba offers many good restaurant and bar choices so we didn't want to limit our choices. Check-in was a breeze - less than 15 minutes, I think. In fact, from the time we landed at the airport to the time we first stepped foot on the beach was only 1 1/2 hours which is amazing. We stayed in an oceanview room on the 2nd floor which was very nice. Maid service was quick and not intrusive - they somehow knew the perfect time of the day to clean the room. They were working on the electrical one day which left us without power for a few hours but it wasn't that much of a hassle. The only thing I would change about the room is the size of the balcony - just another 6 inches wider and it would be perfect.The beach was perfect - while the palapas were always available, I was out there by 7 every morning to get a couple of lounges and read the paper. Waitress services is a nice touch as is the cooler provided in the room for beers on the beach. We only had one lunch at Pega Pega which was ok - nothing extraordinary but decent. We ate at Ike's one day for breakfast. We would have rather ordered off of the ala carte menu but it was too limited so we chose the buffett. I thought the $18 per person was a little steep but given meal prices throughout Aruba, it wasn't too bad.We had a perfect meal at the Chophouse - great strip steak and a filet. The only minor disappointment with Manchebo was that we were hoping to do the all-inclusive for our first full day. I explained at the front desk at check-in and was told to come back later in the day. I came back after dinner and explained again what I wanted - just one day of the AI. I was told it would be easier if I came back the following morning which was fine as I knew I'd be up early and could take care of all of the paperwork before my wife was ready for breakfast. The next morning, however, when I again explained what I wanted, I was told that the minimum number of days you can do the AI is 3. I understand the reasoning but I was just disappointed that I wasn't told each time I inquired and I was hoping for a completely relaxing day on the beach. No bid deal - as I said, there are plenty of places to eat in Aruba.Overall, I would definitely recommend Manchebo Beach Club to couples looking to relax and avoid the crowds and activity of Palm Beach (we stayed at the Hilton for the 2nd part of the honeymoon.) I would also agree with numerous other reviews who considered this section of Eagle Beach to be the best beach on Aruba.
My husband and I took our 1st vacation in 22 years together. The beach was amazing, the staff fabulous. Our room was clean and always attended to daily. We loved the uncrowded peaceful feeling of the Manchebo! There were some children there but we never heard any of them. It was a short taxi ride to the high rise section if you want to partake in a more bustling atmosphere/night life. While he has finally decided to accommodate my wish to travel; we sat down over the weekend to start looking at destinations for next year and we just can't think of going anywhere else. While Aruba is the only place we have ever been we have decided we are going back again next year. Aruba and the Manchebo are the place for us!
My 3 friends and I celebrated my 40th birthday here and I could not have asked for a better experience. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. I liked that the resort was small, not overcrowded and everyone gets a palapa on the beach. The beach is amazing!!! Beautiful white sand and gorgeous turquoise water, it was heaven. Great drinks at the bar and the Chophouse was awesome. I would highly recommend staying here, I will definitely be back. Thanks guys for such a memorable birthday!
We really wanted some R&R on our quick Aruba vacation, so the best part of this resort was its location on the beach. After a quick (and delicious) buffet breakfast, we were able to walk a couple hundred yards from the restaurant to the beach to relax. The beach in front of the hotel was great for swimming, unlike some neighboring hotels where there were large rock buffers on their beaches that prevented guests from swimming. There were also palapas (large umbrella-looking structures with roofs made of palm leaves) on the beach so that guests didn't have to bother with umbrellas or worry about bad sunburns. Moreover, the hotel provided chairs for free use on the beach. The staff was extremely friendly, especially those at the beach bar and front desk. Food and drinks were delicious, and priced appropriately for a resort (so a little pricey :) ). Rooms were well-appointed and fairly standard. Finally, I really liked that the area surrounding the hotel was pretty quiet. We didn't take advantage of the spa, gym, or yoga classes, and although we had a car (which we parked in front for free), we didn't wander off property much because we were so comfortable there.
We’ve been to Aruba at the end of March, 2017. The island has high-rise and low-rise hotels. Having read numerous reviews, we chose low-rise Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa Hotel (Eagle Beach) and did not regret. It’s an ideal hotel because:· It has an excellent own beach. It has enough palapas and beach chairs for hotel guests and you don’t need to get up early in the morning and book them like in high-rise hotels where beaches are overcrowded. Manchebo beach is not overcrowded and there are no noisy strangers there. It’s clean, romantic and serene. · The hotel is small and tranquil; it’s more for adults, couples rather than for children since there are no any activities for them. You also stay away from hoopla since noisy night life is concentrated in the area of the high-rise hotels· The hotel has a small shop and comfortable lobby with the library where you can sit and relax while waiting for the taxi· The hotel has a nice balcony view (even if you are on the first floor). The hotel is an only 2-storied building and though the hotel is not that high and you see only “pieces” of the sea, you still can enjoy the view of the garden with its palms, flowers and plants. The area of the hotel is very well arranged and beautiful.· The hotel has variety of dining and conveniently located in terms of dining outside of the hotel. You will never get tired of Manchebo’s meal since it has four restaurants. In the evenings the hotel arranges various wine and dine with the music. We’ve been to paella night and we were impressed, it was delicious!! We also enjoyed food in Pega Pega Beach Bar and Grill, especially pita bread/tuna/avocado sandwich. Yummy!If you still want more variety in food, there is Alhambra mall with its cafes and restaurants as well as small shops and a casino. The mall is a stone’s throw away, just 1 minute walking.If Manchebo restaurants and Alhambra mall are not enough for you can easily go to Oranjestad center or Palm Beach night life taking a taxi or by bus. The bus stop is just behind the hotel. Buses run every 30 minutes. · Excellent service! Very hospitable, polite, smiling and friendly personnel! We felt relaxed and home-like.As for hotel CONS, we didn’t find them. Some guests complained about low WiFi connection but we didn’t care. You don’t need WiFi, when you have such a beautiful beach and comfortable amenities JThank you Aruba, thank you Manchebo for such a wonderful vacation. If we ever come back to Aruba we shall definitely stay at Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa Hotel again! Olga & Roman
