There is one bar located on the beach that carries premium liquors. The other bar that is located next to the pool only carries well liquors. Good for beer or frozen cocktails mostly. The closest place to the beach to eat on the property is a buffet. It carries a nice variety. You can have burgers grilled fresh. They also have hot dogs, chicken, pizza etc. Something for everyone.

This exclusive boutique hotel is part of the Barceló Aruba and offers guests VIP services such as personalized check-in, room service from 7 am to 10 pm, premium brand drinks and, of course, free Wi-Fi. In addition, guests will have preferential bookings in the à la carte restaurants, which include Mexican, Japanese and Italian specialties. However, the Royal Level Lounge is undoubtedly the most striking restaurant. You can enjoy a romantic dinner and eat delicious food while marveling at the best views in the entire hotel. And, to top off a perfect day at the hotel, the 35 rooms located on floors 7, 8 and 9 of the building guarantee that your rest is complemented with the most luxurious facilities and the best views in Palm Beach. The experience of a vacation in Palm Beach is enjoyable and relaxing. But adding to this the best services of a luxury club is, without a doubt, something unique to the Royal Level at Barceló Aruba.
