Not the best. Not the worst. Very pretty!

So my trip started off poorly as my luggage was lost. When my boyfriend and I went to check in I explained this to them because they would be receiving my bag the next day. I asked if they had any toothpaste as mine wouldn't be here and they directed me to the shop. Not exactly what I had wanted. The desk didn't seem to care much. We are told to go to the reservations desk to make dinner reservations. We were unable to do hibachi because you must call or email at least a week ahead of time to get the reservation. No worries. We decided on the Japanese restaurant and the seafood place. When you only stay 4 nights you can only book two dinners and must eat buffet for the others. The guy at guest services said to try to go to the restaurant and see if anyone cancelled. We went up to our room and it was clean and a decent size for two people. We went down to the pool and it is really pretty. There are iguanas everywhere which is awesome. We went to the bar and had drinks and relaxed. The pool and hot tubs are clean and the bartenders were friendly. We tried to go to a restaurant later and they were booked until 930pm. We ate at the palm buffet and it was edible. The bar in the lobby makes much stronger drinks than the pool bar. The next day we had an excursion in the morning and ate at the arubian pool buffet for lunch. This was much better than the palm. We ate here again later in the trip. I wouldn't recommend booking excursions through Barcelo. Their trips aren't as good as some of the other ones. Definitely do the UTV/ATV tour from someone else so you can go to the natural pool. It's the best part of the trip. The worst part of the hotel was that our door broke twice. Our keys wouldn't work and when I went down to the desk she said the battery in the door died and it happens all the time. Security would come up and fix it. The whole ordeal took over 25 minutes and no one seemed to bat an eyelash. When I asked why it happens all the time they said it just does and laughed. They also have an issue with keys getting deactivated often. We saw a few couples waiting outside their rooms for security to reprogram the door. The staff just didn't seem to care that it was an inconvience. Also when we were at one of the restaurants you needed to make reservations for there was no one there. They were empty!!! They could have sat so many more people. It seemed like they didn't want to accommodate guests in this manor though. The Aruban seafood was okay but the Japanese place was good. Overall the cost was cheap and the resort was pretty. The staff could have been friendly and accommodating. They shouldn't be okay inconviencing others. Aruba is a beautiful place no matter where you stay and the hotel should try to be more customer service oriented. The newly renovated casino is very small. We went elsewhere. Multiple cab drivers told us since it become the barcelo it has gone downhill. We won't be staying at a barcelo again.

Great vacation

This was my second trip to Barcelo Aruba. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar on the beach has been removed but they do have servers that take your order for drinks while on the beach. The food is okay and could do for some improvement. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There are plenty of activities around the hotel. The hotel is in a perfect location if you want to shop or grab a bite to eat outside the facilities. I would recommend staying at Barcelo.

Will not go back

Spent 5 nights there. Resort was nice enough, beach and weather were beautiful. Food was nothing to rave about. Bar drinks not great either. Had to go and "mark" chairs and shade before breakfast since there was not enough tiki huts on the beach to accommodate everyone. Staff and service were good......very happy with that

Enjoyed our stay immensely, except for a few things. On arrival they gave us probably one worse views from a room they have, but gave us a room change the next day with spectacular views and sunsets. Made reservations for 2 of the restaurants for outside dining days in advance and we're told no seats were available when we arrived. Other than that we had a great time. Staff was always helpful and friendly. Wish we were still there. Such a beautiful place.

What's to Love

All-inclusive resort in a dreamy location - easy to travel to, lots of shopping & a foodie's paradise.

The lively Palm Beach sits out back, where white sands meet gentle blue waters.

Laying out by the pool with the sounds of ocean waves rolling in - paradise found, for sure.

Early risers will love morning walks on the beach - the sunrises are spectacular.

Take a spin at the on-site casino - blackjack, roulette, poker tables and sport betting.

 

What We'd Change

The pool isn't quite as big as we'd like, but the free form beauty and swim-up Splash Bar more than make up for it.

 

Why You Should Go

This small, happy island greets you with tons of sunshine, cocktails and a short commute to the resort.

Charge up your phones because you'll want plenty of snaps of the sunsets.

Activities on the beach, at the pool, and around the resort - including a kids club for the wee-ones.

Venture into town for shopping, food and nightlife. You'll love the energetic atmosphere.

A bus runs along the hotel strip from 5:45am-6pm, taking you to your next stop - cost is less than $3.
