We were at this resort the last week of November 2012. We truly appreciated the staff at Manchebo. Michelle at the reception desk gave us an excellent first impression. Carlos at the beach is also worth mentioning: he's very friendly and helpful, frequently stopping by our palapa to enquire about our wellbeing. The beach is gorgeous and there was plenty of palapas available. The room was clean, and well equipped with refrigerator and microwave. The double shower is well appreciated. The two restaurants (Ike Bistro and French Steakhouse) weren't bad, but not great either. Ike Bistro was way overpriced for such simple cooking. A few steps away is a good alternative: Ellioti Italian restaurant serving a really excellent seafood soup, escargots and a fairly extensive list of fish dishes (we tried 3 different dishes, all excellent). This resort location is great, with both Palm Beach and Oranjestad not far away. Within walking distance (over 0.5 mi or 1 km) is a large supermarket complex (Kong Hing and Ling&Sons). We prefer Ling & Sons which carried great snacks such as choucroute garnie, pate, foie gras, meat filled turnovers, etc. There are many restaurants there. We did try The Promenade: very decent food at very decent prices and great service.
