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.

Barcelo review

This was our first time in Aruba. The Barcelo was a very nice resort with a great atmosphere. It was clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Food was good, especially the Italian restaurant. They would mix up the meals a little bit each night. The resort is beach front and has plenty of seating at the pool and beach for everyone. It’s also right near shopping areas and restaurants across the street. My only complaints were I had to pay for WiFi If I wanted it or I got 1 free hour a day. Also our closet door was broken on arrival, which I didn’t fix since I didn’t use it. The bathroom door was also hard to open/close because it was not on the frame correctly. They had nice little shops in the resort as well. I guess they could add a bar closer to the beach so you don’t have to walk up to the pool for a drink. Overall, great resort, would go back, and recommend

My stay was good there. Could things have been better, absolutely. The staff was not too friendly. But the location is perfect to be involved in things if you want to be and quiet enough if you don't want to. The beach is beautiful.

Truly the happy island

I will definitely be returning to the Barcelo Aruba!! Thank you Rendy for making our stay one of the BEST stays ever... Jojo

Belinda & Marolyn, First Club were the best. They made us feel welcome and helped us in everyway possible.

We loved our first trip to Aruba, staying at the Barcelo made a world of difference. The First Club staff is top notch and Belinda & Marolyn took great care of us. From check in through check out, we had first class service. Our suite was beautiful with an ocean view. The drinks, the food and entertainment were great. The pool and beach areas are awesome. All of the staff at the Barcelo made sure we were taken care of. They also had entertainment everyday and shows at the theater. We had something to do every night because, there are tons of shops, restaurants, bars, and casinos, just outside the front door of the resort. We definitely loved Aruba and will return next year for the 2019 Soul Festival.
