Total relaxation on the best beach in Aruba! The staff is wonderful and service great! We discovered that we left my wife's wallet in the safe and called from baggage claim in Boston after landing at 10:00 in the evening! DW called and spoke to Majida at the desk and the wallet was recovered in 5 minutes and put in the resort safe overnight. We got a call at 8:30 next morning from Milanyela who made arrangements to ship it back to us.... and a DHL confirmation before noon! That's outstanding customer care!

Having been to Palm Beach, Baby Beach, and Eagle Beach, I wished I had spent the entire weekend at Manchebo. Not that the others were bad; Manchebo was just better.

First, it's gorgeous. The water was clear, blue, and the perfect temperature. The sand is white and fluffy. You can see forever out into the ocean, too. It's exactly what I picture when I think of an idyllic, Caribbean beach.

Second, there's plenty of room. We went on a Saturday morning and stayed through the afternoon, and we never had trouble finding space from people out in the water when we wanted it. There were plenty of huts, and as long as you move the hotel chairs out from under them, they are free to use (this from one of the local beach staff).

Beautiful stretch of natural beach and the low rise section is so peaceful. The sea is not flat Carribean as further up the way, but the aqua blue and the waves are so wonderful.
Hopefully this area will stay preserved and low key to keep the giant turtles coming back to lay their eggs. We were lucky to be here during hatching and able to pass by the blocked off nesting mounds on our daily walks. We were grateful that people respected the protected areas, and even better, were gathered to assist the environmentalists in guiding the hatchlings down to the water edge! Very exciting and wonderful to see this rare occurrence in such a populated area. 1 in 1000 are reported to survive!

Manchebo is THE best. First time in Aruba, celebrating two birthdays on a girls trip and the staff at Manchebo made it so incredibly special. They are wonderful, attentive, and knew our names from the start. The food is amazing as well, and the drinks are lovely (definitely try the Manchebo Breeze - it was our favorite). The hotel grounds are spectacular, very well kept, and the beach is phenomenal. I’ll be staying here every time I visit Aruba! 10/10 recommend.

This beach is just the southern end of Eagle Beach. It is broad for most of the length, and narrows at the south, where there are some nice restaurants in hotels. The low rise hotels on most of this beach are set back, leaving lots of room. Not crowded at all. No watersports vendors. The hotels have the concession for palapas, which are near the hotels for convenience of their guests. The hotels separate this beach from the road, so there’s no nearby parking. The sand is soft and white and does not get hot, so walking along this beach is very pleasant. It is very clean. The wind constantly blows, but makes for a cooling effect. There is a slope into the water and waves are not too rough.

We stayed at ABC and enjoyed our walks on the beach. The stretch from ABC to Eagle Beach is nice, less wavy than the part in front of CDM and not as crowded as Palm Beach and the section of Eagle Beach in front of La Cabana. Also they have put in a large paved parking area next to Costa Linda which makes it much easier for folks who are not staying on Manchebo.

The beach is very nice. It gives off a calm vibe, has very nice white sand and ample of space to lie down (even without stretchers). The seawater seems quite salty but that dosen't take away its beautiful blue color. WiFi is offered, at least at the part where we stayed, for no additional cost. We didn't use the stretchers of the beach club since those are only for hotel guests, but the umbrellas were free off use and we just used towels and self-brought chairs.

Recommended is to stay until sunset for a great late afternoon.

During our week at Divi Aruba, we walked the beaches at least once every day. Divi Beach is awesome, but I would have to say Manchebo Beach is a little better for walking. The beach is extremely soft, and MUCH wider. You can walk along the water's edge and you're very far away from anyone at the resorts. And there are a lot fewer people on Manchebo than on Divi.....although Divi isn't that crowded either. And the great thing about Aruba....all the beaches in this area are considered public, so you can walk on any of them.

This is the 3rd time we have been to this resort in the low rise area. If you are looking for peace and quiet, views to die for and excellent food, this is your place. Above all that, the staff is wonderful. They never disappoint, service second to none. I will return on our next trip to Aruba. Thank you to the Manchebo staff from Tim and (shellfish) Dawn!

Overall, one of the nicest (albeit relatively small) beach areas in the Caribbean. Warm water all year around. Soft sand. No seaweed most of the time. Good for swimming but not super deep.
