    First time in Aruba

    This was our first time in Aruba and barcelo resort. The barcelo resort staff were extremely friendly especially Diego at the pool bar along with Lina at the breakfast buffet. The Italian and Japanese restaurants were fantastic. The lunch buffets were okay and some of the food was a little dry. Overall we really loved our stay in Aruba and will definitely be back.

    Barcelo Aruba, the WORST !

    Please DO NOT BOOK BARCELO ARUBA! The rooms were smelly, dirty, extremely old, and the balcony was filthy. It smelled as if the room had been closed for years and was only opened when I arrived. The bathroom was very ordinary as well. Additionally, the room was too small and not suitable for a family with kids. Despite paying extra for an Ocean/Pool view, I received a room that was akin to garbage. The safe was not working, and I had to call the help desk. It took 2-3 people half an hour to repair the broken safe. I sincerely advise against staying at Barcelo Aruba. I didn't realize this was rated as a 3.5-star hotel; I had thought it was at least a 4-star hotel when I made my booking. However, during my stay, it felt more like a 2.5-star hotel. I have nothing positive to say about my experience at Barcelo Aruba. I hope this review will help those who are planning to book this all-inclusive resort.

    Best honeymoon ever

    Our honeymoon was amazing and we could not have asked for better! We had the best bartenders, servers, hosts, tour guides, etc.! We are so excited to come back and visit again! If you are staying at Barcelo you need to visit Diego at the pool bar, Gerald at the Mexican restaurant on site, and definitely check out the Hibachi restaurant on site for awesome entertainment and amazing food!! -Gavin & Grace
