Honeymoon Of A Lifetime
Where do I even start, from the kindness to the high level of respect received from everybody there to the delicious always fresh served food. This trip of a lifetime left me and my newly wed wife ready to book the second trip back before we even left from our honeymoon. Highly recommend the royal level rooms for your stay, with amazing room service and royal breakfast/lunch/and dinner you'll never even want to visit any other restaurants near the resort. The staff was one of the biggest delights that brought us joy in ways not even words can describe. Joyce always starting off our day with a beautiful smile and delicious breakfast, truly treated my wife and I like Kings and Queens. The staff was amazing doing the impossible to make all our wishes come true. Melvin, Elena, Sylvester and the list goes on with them truly making it a Royal experience. Sandra Steba thank you and your amazing crew for making this experience one that will never be forgotten. My wife and I had planned to travel all around to different resorts and try different things in the future, but with the honeymoon we had with you guys we will be surely back for our next trip. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Worst experience. Management did not take care of any issues, got stuck in an elevator with no AC, management told me to find security because he was busy.... Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.
Best location on Palm Beach Aruba. All-inclusive. Great beach frontage for smaller hotel-less crowded. Water sports galore. Shopping and restaurants directly across street. Only complaint-liquor was not top shelf-all generic
From the moment we arrived to our departure, our stay at the Barcelo was incredible. Prior to our trip we upgraded to Royal Level, so worth it, and upgraded our room as well. We had private check in service upon our arrival, and Veronica was so welcoming. Although the room that we had requested was not available, the Barcelo upgraded us to one of their Master Suites and the suite was spectacular. The staff at the hotel were wonderful - friendly, helpful - just great. When we checked out, Sandra helped us out, and she was super nice. The restaurants were wonderful and we especially liked the Japanese restaurant. We cannot wait to come back to Aruba and we WILL be staying at the Barcelo when we return! Thank you Barcelo for an amazing memorable trip!
Rendy and Raemundo are awesome at their job! Great guys, and awesome at what they do! Highly recommend visiting here! The food is awesome as well. The entire staff is friendly. From the fromt desk, to maintenace, to bartenders, and restaurant staff. Awesome all around.
