This is the first time I'm writing a review but I think this resort deserves it. The rooms are very clean and spacious so beautiful. I would recommend to ask for pool view on a high floor 5th or 6th. A special thank you will go to Natalia at the guest services she helped us with all our dinners and...

This restaurant had such friendly staff. Loved Edgard- cute, personable and a good selfie picture taker. Shomara was great, patient, and made sure we had exactly what we needed. Paris made the greatest strawberry Margaritas!! The Tres Leche Cake was fabulous. They were very gracious when we made a mistake and broke the potted vase. We had a great time!!

My husband and I visited Barcelo Aruba in April 2017 on a one day pass that we purchased from Shore Excursioneer website. We took a cab from the cruise terminal that took about 15 minutes to get to the resort. When we checked in at the front desk, we received our wristbands and a one page newsletter about daily activities....

We stayed here for 8 nights and thought the Hotel grounds were beautiful. The Pool bar runs out of Alcohol every day and it takes many hours for it to be restocked. There are no servers walking in the pool area to take orders. This makes the pool bar very crowded at times. Every other resort has this service😞. On...

We have been coming to this hotel for 17 years. Now that it is Barcelo, they cannot seem to keep the bar stocked. No Jack Daniels, no vodka, they cannot make a Creamsicle. They cannot make an electric lemonade on most days. We love the staff here but management has seen fit to not be able to stock the bar....

As a recent Royal Club guest I found everything, starting from pickup at airport to leaving to return home exceptional. Every effort was made to make my stay an unforgettable experience . The cleanliness of the room and friendliness of the entire staff was by far top notch. We dined at the majority of the restaurants within the hotel and...

Dear kimbf1990, Thank you so much for writing us a review and thus providing us an opportunity to make improvements.
