All Inclusive    

Located in Palm Beach, the most cosmopolitan and vibrant area of Aruba, this high-end, all-inclusive resort for families and couples offers a new level of luxury. The resort holds a privileged location on the fine white sands of a Caribbean beach overlooking turquoise waters, with warm, dry weather throughout the year.

Enjoy the tropical atmosphere of the large, free-form swimming pool with waterfalls, two whirlpools, and a swim-up bar to keep you relaxed and cool throughout the day.

With elegantly appointed accommodations and a la carte dining options, you'll feel a sense of sophisticated luxury that goes far beyond your expectations. This magnificent resort is close to many tourist attractions and just steps away from the best entertainment, lounges, discos, and shopping areas the island has to offer.

The program of sports and leisure activities includes tennis on two floodlit courts, beach volleyball, water polo, aqua aerobics, diving demonstration lessons, snorkeling (equipment available), and more. The youngsters (ages 4-12) will enjoy the Kids' Club, with its program of supervised activities. In the evening, don't miss the shows and nightly entertainment.

I was with my two daughters aged 9 & 12. This is our second time staying at Barcelo.Beach is calm & really beautiful! Location is great in the high rises. We could walk day or night to restaurants and shopping!Pool is very nice & they have fun activities for kids & adults.Food was good. We enjoyed buffet & Mexican Restaurant. Japanese was our favorite!

3rd times a disappointment

As this was my third visit this year, I arrived with great expectations and although room and resort were lovely and clean as always, ran into a problem with beverage availability and one staff member at Lobby Bar who was annoyed with my requests. The unfortunate part is as a drinker when on vacation, all-inclusive makes the most sense economically. Without drinking due to lack of availability on this trip, would have made more sense for me to stay elsewhere and buy/bring what I wanted.

We went with friends and had a great time. The Royal Club amenities were very good. The views from our balcony were amazing. The rooms could use some updating. The cleaning staff was very friendly to us.

This is a gorgeous hotel! The staff is very friendly. Food is delicious . Propeerty is well kept.

Aruba is one of the smaller islands. The excursion we did was the "Discover Aruba Tour"! Very, very informative. Our tour guide was amazing. Discovered things about Aruba that I never knew. Truly impressed. We left the resort at 10:45 AM and returned around 5:00 PM. The tour included a trip to Baby Beach.

Best Service Ever

The Concierge treatment at the Royal Club is Top Notch. We mainly deal with Sandra and Veronica. They always know when we are arriving and all the amenities that we enjoy. We never have to ask for anything, "They Just Know" On top of it all, they are great fun! Love them! Randi and Joe Orsillo
