    This was our 4th visit to Aruba in the past 5 yrs. First and foremost, we love the island, the people, the beaches and the overall vibe. I will begin with the positives from our stay over Thanksgiving 2019 at Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa. Positives: -The beach is lovely. Wide with plenty of space between cabanas. Water was perfect. Quiet and laid back, unlike the high-rise area we have stayed in the past. -The staff for the most part was friendly and accommodating. There were some exceptions please see below in negs. -The food and drink was good for us. We preferred some of the restaurants and bars more than others. The sushi restaurant was our favorite and Chef Mylene couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly! -Our room #37 was ok but needs some upgrades. View from deck was decent and maid service was very good. -Spa was nice and massage was excellent. -Transportation was readily available with several options. -The facility and grounds were clean and well maintained. Negatives: -Inconsistant service from some of the staff members. Good for the first few days then tapered off. -Two very rude and unprofessional hostess and host. Rebecca (edgy hostess) and Michael (rude SushI host) -The “all-inclusive” is not a true all-inclusive. There are exceptions you will pay for extra. -Staff seemed to cater more to returning guests. Shout outs to staff who we enjoyed: Fabian - Beach server (Favorite) Magnolia - Chop House server Fanny - Server Josephina - Maid Onis - Spa/Massage Aracelys - Server (Favorite) Jason - Server Thanksgiving Jordany - Sushi server (Favorite) Lucindia - Omelete lady We are considering other hotels in the area but will likely remain on this stretch of beach for reasons stated earlier in this review.

    My husband and I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we come to Aruba. The staff is so friendly and they think of all the little extra things to make your stay special. The beach and hotel are both beautiful. Ignacio and Joshuel made happy hour every night so much fun. Can't recommend staying here enough!

    First time traveling to Aruba and we couldn't decide between the low-rise and high-rise hotel areas, so we decided to try both. We're in our late 30's, my husband loves active vacations and I love relaxing at the beach, so we try to do both on our trips. We picked Manchebo as our low-rise option because the rooms and common areas looked beautiful and it had an all-inclusive option, which we both prefer because we enjoy eating and drinking on vacation without worrying about sticking to a budget. Manchebo was everything I had hoped for and more. All staff was extremely friendly. For example our room wasn't ready so the person who checked us in walked us to Pega-Pega, the beach-front restaurant and bar, and made sure we had a drink and menus. Jean at the bar took great care of us and was so friendly and helpful with drink and menu recommendations (try their Mojitos, the best I have ever had and not a drink I typically order, but so good I got a few each day!). Then when our room was ready, another person from the front desk came with our room keys and walked us to our room. Way above and beyond what I am used to, but it really made us feel welcome from the start. We ate at both Ike's and Chophouse for dinners and both restaurants offered great food and excellent service, especially Alex at the Chophouse who made sure we were hydrating and happy and Ana at Ike's who made our dinner so special! I missed the names of the bartender at Ike's who was so friendly and helpful and the beach server who tirelessly ran drinks for us each day on the beach by himself, thank you both! One of the best qualities of Manchebo was the availability of shaded spaces (palapas) on the beach. I had read reviews of Aruba and stories of what a nightmare it was to grab one. So the first morning we woke up in Aruba, we ran to breakfast and then straight out to the beach to find... a ton of available palapas and a super-friendly beach attendant to lay out chairs and help us get settled, all at no charge. The next morning we slept in, had a leisurely breakfast and headed to the beach at 10am and again, a ton of available places to choose from. I was so relieved and honestly that made the decision for me when we return to Aruba, low-rise and Manchebo 100% and we'll just rent a car or jeep next time so we can explore more places.
