Leaves a lot to be desired....

First and foremost, Aruba is beyond beautiful, fun, and exciting. My first time there and I will be back as soon as I possibly can. No where compares! That being said, I will not return to Barcelo. It wasn't a terrible resort, but there are much better choices. The Good: The people are what makes this resort. Friendly and always ready to help! The employees work so hard. The resort area itself is very pretty. The beach is amazing! The water is blue and warm. Floats for the ocean are free from DePalm for resort guests. The shopping/restaurant area behind the resort is safe and a nice place to stroll after dinner. The Bad: Rooms are OUTDATED! Very musty, moldy smelling. We had several rooms and joked each night about going to bed in our "wet" sheets. The refrigerator is never cold (even having it switched out for another several times). There is black mold on the walls in places. DO NOT look under the furniture unless you want to vomit. - I showered in 3" of water everyday. There is no ventilation in the bathrooms. We had to beg for toilet paper. Our main outlet fell out of the wall each time we unplugged something (wires and everything exposed!). You will only get a palaypa or pool lounge IF you wake up before 6. There are absolutely NONE afterwards. Most are claimed and never used all day. The food was fine but always the same. Nothing great. Mediocre and usually cold.There is no where to get snacks in between buffet times. Sidenote: CheapCaribbean was fantastic in meeting all my traveling needs!

Anniversary Aruba

Just got back home from this resort and I would honestly say that I WILL NOT be back to this resort. Aruba was fantastic! The beaches and the water ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Upon arrival the check in was easy and they took you or directed you to your room and brought your belongings to you. We were there celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. They had a bottle of champagne waiting for us, they offered a turn down service one night WHICH NEVER HAPPENED and that was disappointing. The food was subpar, they only had two options during the day which were only buffet. I was surprised when I saw that they had gluten free pancakes and other items as I have a allergy to gluten. One day I wanted to try them and the lady said nope we do not have any (but your making pancakes right now) and wouldn't make any others (disappointing). The dining selections were not that great either. We had reservations at their Mexico Lindo and it was AWFUL!! If you are looking for actual Mexican food I DO NOT SUGGEST trying it (STAY AWAY). I felt sorry for a couple and their kids because they had reservations for Aruban Seafood and waited for over two hours (bad thing is they had little ones with them), they went elsewhere to eat. We did try their Italian restaurant with a couple we met and the food I received was less than to be desired. The pool area was small and if you did not wake up early enough than you WILL NOT GET A SEAT AT THE POOL. As people go down there and reserve their seats by placing a towel or other personal items on the chairs. The same goes for the beach area. The only bathroom they had at the Barcelo was down by the pool. So if you are gambling or drinking in the lounge then the choices is to go back to your room or down by the pool. The amount of security they had at this resort was impressive. When we were leaving I went to make our reservations with the DePalms company and the guy looked at me rolled his eyes, looked at me again. I did say sorry if I am inconveniencing you. He told me the time the bus would be there to pick us up and I said thank you. He then yelled and said the time again (OK THANK YOU) rude!!!

STAY AWAY!

Listen to the negative reviews, wish I had. Food is mediocre. This resort is worn out! ThenOccidental Grand used it up and Barcelo bought it and it using it as long as they can. Furniture, the room, the bathrooms are tired and unappealing. Drinks are sugar water. One bartender said”oops, I gave you Jose Cuervo Gold” what was he supposed to give me??? Half the time when you ordered from a menu you only got part of what you ordered and substitutions like a pile of rice. I’ve been to Aruba at least 8 times and adored it, but I think this resort has spoiled it for me, I definitely WiILL NOT EVER stay at another Barcelo resort. This was our 48th anniversary trip and it has not been fun. We were NEVER able to get a Palapa at the beach or a chair by the pool. We are currently at the resort. Don’t waster 5,000 like we did. Back to the Dominican Republic for us way better for a lot less money.

Food was subpar but the resort was buratiful

The resort was beautiful and the rooms are very nice and comfortable. The food was pretty much the same across three meals and days and was just Okay. Nothing I would go back for. The best meals we had were away from the resort. And forget about getting your drinks refilled at the restaurants or buffets.

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.
