Great place, we love the staff and our rooms, weve been going for 7 years. specialty restaurants are great, the buffet and the beach club buffet need a little assortment and prepping. The pool is great with the pool bar,but the most amazing thing about the place is the beach. The sand is nice the location and size are nice, plenty of shade or sun. Staff is great with a shout out to dale the hostess,danilo,zulay esmerelda in the buffet,Nakisha and jonathan at the beach the girl that sets up restaurants in front is amazing and lenny the singer.frank and the guys at the beach, staff has increased since my last trip. Bathrooms tend to back up a lot.They should have a rewards program for us frequent flyers, this is my 7th time

Hotel's Favourite
We returned to Barcelo for July 4th and it was amazing. Roland always greets us with a big smile when we arrive. Although we missed the usual fireworks on the 4th of July, we enjoyed the noon tribute to America. This trip was especially monumental. With the help of Natasha and Belinda who helped my soon-to-be son-in-law arrange a romantic proposal moment on the beach, which included dinner for the newly engaged couple. A shout out to Tomi +386 40 146 520 (WhatsApp) for his drone navigating video that captured the moment for them to share. Juan attended to every detail imaginable to make the romantic dinner event special. Eduardo made accommodations for us at the Japanese restaurant where we sat at tatami-style tables and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Eduardo also arranged for me to have a cup of tea at night when he was in the Buffet. Franny is always a pleasure to see and we were happy to meet up with her in the Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed an amazing meal. Patti, Beth and Shaniqua attentive to us while we ate breakfast and lunch. Joyce and Rodell added to the experience at the Royal Club restaurant. Rodell's talent in decorating a plate is spectacular. The pool and the beach were as beautiful as ever, as was the sunset. A special thank you to Jimmy, Patti and Ricky who provided daytime activities and Alan who hosted nightly events in the night club. We are so happy the night club has many interactive events. The music at the lobby bar was great and many people danced in the evening. The increased nightly events, especially the bands were a great addition to the experience. Thank you to our Barcelo family for making our stay at Barcelo so much fun. We look forward to our return.

We spent a week at the Barceló Aruba. I had a surprise engagement planned and wanted everything to be perfect. Kimberly was very welcoming. The property is absolutely beautiful and the staff treats you like family. I loved having breakfast at the Beach Club with the ocean view.

We had the pleasure of booking our stay here at the Barcelo Resort. Everything about this stay was amazing. The view of the ocean and the pool from my room, the restaurants, the entertainment, the staff, etc. I would recommend this resort to any and all who would love to travel to Aruba, my new favorite vacation destination. Looking forward to my next visit in the future. Thank you Barcelo Resort for making my stay in Aruba a memorable one I will never forget.
