    Loved this hotel!

    We visited Barcelo Aruba last month & had the best vacation ever. The employees are fantastic; kind, friendly, helpful & go out of their way to help. Eugene in the Buffet was fabulous! He even sent over a birthday cake at breakfast & had everyone sing happy birthday to me. Another shout out to Martin in Guest Services, he was so helpful as we were changing our dinner reservations, he even remembered my birthday which had been in a passing conversation weeks prior through email. The beach was gorgeous and the pool was spectacular with rock to sit on, trees for shade & plenty of chairs. Can’t wait til next year to go back. We did glance at other hotels to see if we’d want to try another hotel next year & we both came to the conclusion that Barcelo is by far the best all around!

    Amazing vacation!! Great value!!

    We did a girls' trip and had an amazing time. Everything was better than expected. We loved the two restaurants we tried (Italian and Fish) and the breakfast buffet had everything you could ever want for breakfast. The staff was very friendly, polite and solicitous of our needs. We loved Genesis in the fish restaurant - she remembered our orders from 3 days earlier!! The rooms were spacious and very clean - kudos to the staff there as well. We have stayed at other resorts on Eagle/Palm Beach and would definitely consider Barcelo - we are already talking about next year's girls trip there!

    This resort is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the drinks were good. The room was spacious and clean. Everything about the resort was better than I expected. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone and I look forward to going back myself. Although I went during the Coronavirus outbreak, almost everything was still open and they tried to accommodate visitors as much as they could.

    Great time despite the virus

    The coronavirus was just starting to have an effect in Aruba. Activities cancelled, stores closed. However, the staff was great. Helped in anyway possible. Some of the restaurants on-site also closed but the food was still good. Rooms were clean. Staff helpful. Were still able to have a relaxing vacation despite all the changes.
