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.

    BEST EXPERIENCE at the Barcelo. The size was perfect not too big, not too small... just right. Great staff from Liza & Veronica in the Royal lounge checking in to Vanessa serving up a big smile on the beach/pool bar service! Gershwin at the Arubian Seafood restaurant and lunch buffet was always very personable and friendly. Suite 1814 facing pool and ocean was a spectacular and spacious 1 BR suite. All staff was friendly and treated you like family not as an inconvenience we will be back! Location location location... very central to shops and restaurants if wanting to go off resort. I got a great tattoo from Lionel at Inkspirational tattoo right across from the Hilton just a few minutes walk! If looking for a private driver to pick you up at airport, or take you around the island call LARRY RAS he's your guy!! He was waiting for us with anniversary balloons and bought us a 6pack of beer for ride to resort.... went above and beyond such a great man!!!

    Anniversary Trip

    The bed was very comfortable. The room was cleaned unless we put a sign on the door to clean it. The balcony was never cleaned. There was cigarette ashes on the little table and the floor of the balcony. The front of the shower soap dispenser fell off and was never fixed properly. We did have a very lovely dinner on the beach to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. This was very delicious and we really enjoyed that. However, we found that the heat was a bit too much for us and needed to leave earlier than we had planned on. We are hoping to get a refund for the two nights we didn't stay.

    Anniversary trip

    This our 4th time here, can’t say enough about all the staff! Everyone is so friendly . Veronica in the Royal club is the absolute best! We had emailed her before we came and she was fabulous in making everything perfect for us! We will be back soon! The Royal restaurant was our favorite, George and all the staff are great! All the bartenders are great! Francesco at the beach bar and Frank our beach guy made everyday enjoyable!

    Mexico Lindo restaurant experience

    We ate at the Mexican restaurant at Barceló, Rodell, Sammy, and Mindy were our waiters and waitress. They made it an amazing experience. Lots of fun good food and great family memories. Mindy is a real sweetheart. I recommend the ribeye tacos

    Great service

    We have had a great time and the Mexican restaurant was great. Rodell and Mindy were amazing and friendly and made our experience great. We ate there two nights out of the week and had them both times and each time they did amazing. Rodell even took a family photo for us that he had printed out by the time we finished dinner. Great personal touch.
