A spectacular All-Inclusive resort right on the beach
The perfect setting for a peaceful tropical vacation
Located on the best fine white sand beaches in Palm Beach, only a few minutes from the capital (Oranjestad), the gorgeous “Cunucu” countryside and the international airport, this all-inclusive resort is a Caribbean oasis for relaxation and fun.
Swimming, scuba diving or sailing in the calm, turquoise water, basking under the sun and enjoying the pool with a cocktail in hand, or trying one’s luck at the hotel’s casino are some of the activities available at this resort.
The soft, Caribbean breeze combined with daytime excursions to the natural pools or to the museums in nearby towns will allow you to immerse yourself in the island’s cultural and social aspects.

    Barcelo Aruba 14th time

    My happy place I wanted to write this review before we left to go back to Pittsburgh. It seems like everyone here is very friendly. The resort is clean comfortable and many of the staff members I would like to congratulate and say thank you for such a wonderful trip there is Carmen there there is Michael in the bar area. There’s Derek and Nathaniel and so many more that I can’t even begin to, say good things about Dale is the hostess that works in the buffet at night and she’s always always remembered me and my family with that being said I want to tell management to please make a better solution for getting up early to save a chair I’ve been here for 10 days and nine of the days I have seen security however, once they pass people put their towels on the lounge chair and disappear for the entire day. It’s not fair , the food at the buffet is decent however, some of the staff members are very slow. We have found all of the specialty restaurants are excellent. The beach restaurant is the best for the staff is attentive and we really enjoy staying staying here. Barcelo needs to just do a few improvements will be back next year.

    Wonderful resort with gorgeous beaches

    We recently stayed at the Barcelo Aruba for a week. We had a wonderful experience. and would definitely go back. The specialty restaurants are excellent. The Royal Club restaurant has excellent food but the service during dinner can be a bit slow. The beach is beautiful and very clean. The nightly lounge music is a nice feature. There are shows every evening at 10pm. There are many options for excursions that you can book at the resort or on the other properties close to the resort. Fernanda in the Royal Club restaurant gave us excellent service. She was very accommodating and friendly every time we ate there. The only complaint is that the music from across the street of the resort continues after midnight and can be loud if you are trying to get to sleep. Also, the shower has a high opening to step into. I would request a walk -in shower next time. The rooms are nice, but the furnishings could be a bit updated. Overall, we loved it and would stay there again.

    Great Spring Vacation at Barcelo!

    Just wrapping up a week at Barcelo and the experience was fantastic. We went with two families and both the kids and adults had a blast. The pool and beach were outstanding. The food was great and most of the staff were top-notch. I want to call out two people specifically- Daliana and Diego. Daliana took care of us each night at the lobby bar. She was incredibly attentive and super friendly. Order the pistachio drink! Diego was our guy at the pool bar and was always looking out for us when it was time for the next drink. Ask him to make his special cocktail- it won’t disappoint. Both of these staff members made our vacation. Tip them well… it’s worth it! My only constructive feedback is that it was a challenge to get clean bath towels.
