This was our first trip to Aruba and Manchebo was just what we wanted. The beach was wonderful. Plenty of palapas, nice wide beach and beautiful to look at too. The pool was small but never more than 8-10 people in it at any one time. Loved it! The staff was so sweet and helpful. Michelle and Sandra at the front desk were so helpful and recognized us whenever we went through the lobby. Carlos always greeted us with a smile when he gave us our lounge chairs. Alejandra and the other servers also made sure to smile and say hi everyday. We hit happy hour most days and loved our drinks. I wish they added more snacks for happy hour and late night munchies (nachos, etc).
We met so many people who came to Manchebo year after year. One couple had been coming for 35 years! They must be doing something right!
