“Only 1 minor hiccup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Just returned home from a one week honeymoon vacation at the Manchebo. Great staff, beautiful property, comfortable room. The only drawback was the extremely slow food service, both at Pega Pega and the new poolside restaurant, and we are talking 45 mins. to an hour for food to arrive, and it was not just one occasion, it happened each order. Other than that, this would have been a 5 star review, thanks again for a great honeymoon!

Room Tip: Renovations at the Bucuti so there is construction noise during the night.

Great to read you had a wonderful honeymoon at our resort. Needless to say we have reviewed your comments on the slow service in our restaurants and have addressed this with the team. We look forward to welcome you back for one of your future anniversaries.

The friendly people at Manchebo Beach Resort make my vacation! I come down 3 times a year for a total of 15 weeks! The building upgrades and the new floor of the pavilion are very nice. The excellent management hosts a Tuesday Cocktail party for the vacationers. From front desk crew, through the breakfast room, to the beach bar the entire staff are friendly and helpful. I will always be partying at Manchebo Beach Hotel.

This is our 4th trip to Aruba. We love Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa. The beaches are awesome and there is plenty of space so you do not feel over crowded. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. We feel very comfortable.

This was our second trip to Aruba and first time with the Manchebo. This is definitely a place we would return to trip after trip. The staff was incredibly helpful before we even went, answering questions and making reservations for us. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay. They treated us to a bottle of champagne as it was our 30th anniversary. The room had a great view of the ocean and was sized just fine for the two of us. Had drinks almost daily at the beach bar, It has a great atmosphere, it was like hanging out with long time friends! The beach staff was wonderful always getting us set up in minutes. Never had an issue finding a spot. Loved the beach, plenty of room so you are not on top of each other. Great spot to be able to walk and walk in either direction. It was very peaceful. Now we are sadly back to reality in the northeast US where it is cold and rainy, sure wish we could have stayed longer!!!!

Our stay at Manchebo resort was exceptional. The view from second floor balcony was magical. This is by far the most amazing part of Eagle beach where you're guaranteed to be on island time, chilling, no hurry, no kids, just peace. there were only a couple of kids who were very well behaved.
The staff was very accommodating and very well trained. There was some minor construction. The lovely folks at the front desk found another room for my Father and his companion while we gladly kept our room as we had no intention of spending much time indoors. Thank you!!! The rooms are clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable. We loved the beach. Very clean, very soft, no shoes needed. I had the pleasure of having the Garra Rufa fish wellness foot spa treatment with Hotske just outside the spa. Highly recommend the experience and enjoyed the education that Hotske provides.
If you're looking for water sport fun, just ask the concierge. She set us up with door to door service with a small local wave runner service which included a ride back on a boat and stroll in from the shore.
The service on the beach was prompt and mindful without being intrusive. No vendors in the beach!
Ike's bistro was fantastic for dinner!
Didn't think much of the stake house but Ike's has a great menu for a few nights of amazing dinners.
Breakfast poolside was phenomenal. All good eats. Loved the organic steel cut oatmeal and fresh fruit. Diana and the lovely ladies made each breakfast a relaxing event. Very attentive crew. Fanny, Jean Pierre, Myron and the crew at the Pega Pega bar created stellar cocktails with great dishes to accompany them.
We're already planning our next trip.

From the moment we arrived, the staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable and memorable. We had the all-inclusive package and tried both restaurants (we preferred Ike's); we always had a good meal. The bartenders were knowing and generous. The beach is fabulous, the room was quite comfortable, and the spa provided great massages. We were in Aruba for 5 days and rarely left the Manchebo. We plan to return next year.

We choose this hotel due to its location, it is perfect and lot if space to seat on the beach! You do not feel like you ate almost seating right next to the next person. The rooms are ok. The only reason i gave a 3(out of 5) to the rooms is the smell coming from the bathrooms. It is terrible smells, like cloth were not dry properly.
The staff very very friendly. During our stay there was a small renovation going on. The Hotel gave us a US$ 50 credit for drinks, for any incoviniences this may create.
The restaurants Ike's and frech steakhouse, excelent!!
There is a pizza across the street which is great!!!
