We had a lovely girlfriend trip in early September and the hotel and staff here are fabulous. Marianita, in the Palm breakfast buffet was so accommodating as well as Sherwin and Shaniqua in the Beach Club breakfast buffet. George was awesome in the Royal Club as Captain, Sylvester as waiter in the Royal Club. Belinda took great care of our room needs in the First Club. Armando and Jose are awesome in the Italian restaurant,,,,,Myrna as hostess in the Asian restaurant and Boy as chef at the hibachi. Junior was our waiter in the Asian, Robert was our great waiter in the Mexican, Nakisha was the beach waitress with Francisco pouring some great Royal Club cocktails. Sergio and Alan had us moving in the water aerobics each day at noon. A shut out to Marco, Ruben and Gerard who took care of our chairs each morning so we could enjoy the beach and beautiful breezes. These employees made our experience so flawless and special. What happens in Aruba stays in Aruba. Marcia B

Hotel's Favorite
We returned to Barcelo for July 4th and it was amazing. Roland always greets us with a big smile when we arrive. Although we missed the usual fireworks on the 4th of July, we enjoyed the noon tribute to America. This trip was especially monumental. With the help of Natasha and Belinda who helped my soon-to-be son-in-law arrange a romantic proposal moment on the beach, which included dinner for the newly engaged couple. A shout out to Tomi +386 40 146 520 (WhatsApp) for his drone navigating video that captured the moment for them to share. Juan attended to every detail imaginable to make the romantic dinner event special. Eduardo made accommodations for us at the Japanese restaurant where we sat at tatami-style tables and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Eduardo also arranged for me to have a cup of tea at night when he was in the Buffet. Franny is always a pleasure to see and we were happy to meet up with her in the Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed an amazing meal. Patti, Beth and Shaniqua attentive to us while we ate breakfast and lunch. Joyce and Rodell added to the experience at the Royal Club restaurant. Rodell's talent in decorating a plate is spectacular. The pool and the beach were as beautiful as ever, as was the sunset. A special thank you to Jimmy, Patti and Ricky who provided daytime activities and Alan who hosted nightly events in the night club. We are so happy the night club has many interactive events. The music at the lobby bar was great and many people danced in the evening. The increased nightly events, especially the bands were a great addition to the experience. Thank you to our Barcelo family for making our stay at Barcelo so much fun. We look forward to our return.
