Hotel Overview

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.

    Great place for honeymoon!

    My wife and I stayed here a couple weeks ago for our honeymoon. Was probably the best trip of our lives. The food and drinks were exceptional, along with the service. We will definitely be going back!

    Memorial Weekend

    I always stay at the Barcelo for vacation, not that I care for all any inclusive, but the Royal Club is quiet with its dedicated check in, plus the Royal Club restaurant is a great way to relax and have a good meal without a crowd.

    Vacation anniversary

    My husband and I recently went on vacation to the Caribbean and stayed at the lovely and luxurious Barceló Aruba all-inclusive resort. When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely and charming front desk staff. In particular, Jenny who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. One of our bags was accidentally left behind at the airport with my husband’s medication. Jenny told us not to worry and that she would take care of the matter immediately. She made numerous phone calls to ensure that the bag was safely and promptly delivered to our room. This enabled us to enjoy our stay without worry. The grounds were meticulously manicured and well maintained. Housekeeping was extremely courteous and very accommodating. I would defiantly recommend a day at the spa to anyone who stays here along with a variety of amenities they offer. I would highly recommend Barceló Aruba to anyone who visits Aruba. We really could not ask for anything more. Thank you so much Jenny for making our stay a very happy and memorable one. Mr & Mrs. B.
