From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Manchebo, we felt cared for. The staff was amazing! From Sandra's warm greeting with two delicious mojitos, O'Neil's informative tour of the grounds, to the wonderful wait staff that served us at the many delicious on-site restaurants, we felt welcomed and cared for.
Doreen, who served us multiple evenings, would bring us delicious samples of vegan dishes enticing us to keep coming back for more, which we did! The food was sooooo delicious! It was a vegan's paradise! We tried everything on Ike's Vegan Menu and wow! We couldn't believe the flavors! Hats off to the chef and cooking staff.
Most notably we loved the Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, which we ordered multiple times, the Vegan Fish Fillet, which was a big surprise, and the Carrot Ginger Lemongrass Soup that we ate with their delicious vegan dinner rolls and butter, Mmmmmm... But all the dishes were satisfying in their own ways and it was great that the other restaurants had vegan choices too!
The times we weren't enjoying the amazing cuisine we were enjoying the wonderful resort. The grounds are so beautiful. At every turn our eyes were filled with amazing views of palm trees, native plants, and tasteful architecture that didn't distract from the beauty of Eagle beach. We spent many days under a palm tree umbrella knocking down Balashi beers enjoying the view before jumping in the turquoise water.
It was such a relaxing getaway. Manchebo has complimentary yoga and we got to enjoy the wonderful and inspiring classes of Manja to start our days before heading to the beach. We also took advantage of a couple's massage at Spa del Sol where we could hear the waves crashing and the birds singing during our deep tissue and hot stone massages.
We definitely plan on coming back to Manchebo. We couldn't have imagined a better time. Aruba is such a great place to vacation and we feel like we picked the best place to stay, especially as vegans. Thanks, Manchebo! See you again soon!

Love everything about Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa. All of the Staff are friendly and happy. Guests are friendly and happy. Manchebo has an absolutely perfect beach experience. We loved every day of our stay. This was our second year here - we are coming back next year!

First vacation in three years and no regrets. The location is beautiful and the resort is a peaceful retreat. The food and service was excellent. Renting a car for a couple of days is worthwhile for exploring the island.

We missed two years due to C19. Upon our return, there were several changes, but the single thing that didn't change was our overall OUTSTANDING experience. 5star, A+. The beach (with palapas, lounge chairs, and towels), the staff, and the entire facility were great.
Changes since our last visit: The front desk/entrance was very nice. The gift shop was more upscale. The addition of the Hospitality Lounge was great.
What didn't change: the friendly/helpful staff, and the repeat guests. It was so great to see so many familiar faces.
Just to touch on the elephant in the room: yes, their beautiful beach is public, however, the staff, specifically Randall, is doing a good job integrating this law with the privacy of the hotel guests.
We're already looking forward to Trip #7.
Delightful stay, can't wait to go back

From the "welcome" mojitos poured at check-in to the cookie treats presented when we checked out, the staff was uniformly lovely, warm and helpful. The attractive, well-equipped rooms and amenities were scrupulously clean, the grounds were beautiful and well-tended, and the culinary program was a particular highlight.
