    The hotel experience was very good! Minor issues like running out of towels for the pool, hard to get a hut to sit under people get there early and reserve them. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends!

    Nice place to stay. Rooms were decent, Air Conditioning was great. The grounds are beautiful and the beach is awesome. Food was decent...breakfast buffet was very good. The resort is clean and the workers are very friendly. Victor our waiter on the beach was fantastic....so nice and friendly and always there to get you a drink.

    Relax at the Barcelo

    We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at the Barcelo. The room itself was nice. It may seem a bit petty though, but I really did mind our view (or lack thereof). We had a first floor room with a very nice outside patio which looked onto a succulent garden, a chain link fence and the sky. No ocean and no pool view. We made good use of the patio none the less since the shade was nice and there was always available seating, but Aruba is a long way to go for a cactus view. At any time, about 60% of the pool chairs sat empty with a lonely towel on them. We were typically able to get a pool chair about 5 pm. There were lots of available chairs by the beautiful ocean, but not in the shaded areas. Those were reserved before dawn. There is one large shaded area, but the smokers congregated there so we stayed away. The food was good, plentiful and varied. The drinks were good, though at times seemed to lack in alcohol, but not a big deal since can just go back for more.

    I just got back today from Aruba, we stayed at Barcelo and loved it. The staff is amazing from Joshua the bellman to Dale and Adonis at the Palm Beach buffet. Ms. Dale always greeted us with such class and took pride in her job. Adonis was our waiter for most of the nights we absolutely loved him, he greeted us with a big smile and always made us feel at home. He put that extra care in everything he did for us. The hotel was very well kept and had different activities each night; if we wanted to go elsewhere we could walk or grab a taxi. It's close to many restaurants and other hotels, you definitely won't be bored. I gave it a four star based solely on the food.The food was good but nothing to write home about. We ate one night at the Arubian restaurant and were not impressed with the food nor the service, as a result we decided not to try the other restaurants. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back to Barcelo!

    Great Vacation.

    We just got back from a trip to Aruba, we stayed at the Barcelo & it was absolutely incredible the hotel was very nice & clean. From the moment we got there Randall at check-in made us feel welcomed. Farrah helped us book our excursions & made arrangements for transport. She was very patient when we had questions & gave great suggestions. She was always there with a smile. The food was delicious & the service in the restaurant was always great, one of the servers in particular Daniel in The Beach Club Lunch buffet remembered our faces everyday & was there to greet us with a smile & amazing service. Will definitely book again if we visit again!
