    This trip to Barcelo Aruba was a once in a lifetime experience. I've been coming here for a long time, and there are usually more tourists than on this trip. Fewer people are traveling, so there were no crowds anywhere. The beach and the restaurants had so much room! It was so nice to have this experience. Now is the time to come! You will never have an opportunity like this again! Thanks Jenny, Sandra, and the entire staff for taking care of everything. It was a great vacation.

    we just returned from an amazing week at Barcelo. We thought about canceling due to Covid but so happy we decided to go. Since we had our neg test 72 hours before leaving the process was easy and we got to our hotel where we were greeted by friendly faces from that point on. Veronica in the Royal concierge was extremely helpful and got us started with reservations for dinner for the entire week. She even called outside restaurants for us which was helpful. We were tired from travelling all day and had dinner at the Royal Club. George greeted us and made us feel like family! The breakfast buffet was great and Theo, Maria and Dale made sure we had everything we needed. The tables and chairs were always sanitized before anyone sat down. The breakfast at the Royal Club was great too.. eggs benedict ! cooked to perfection . Melvin, Lisette and Maria were all there to make sure we had whatever we needed.. We loved them We spent the days at the beach and I was happy to see that the chairs were sanitized each time Santiago and others brought them to us. the weather wasn't as good as other years that I traveled to Aruba but we rented a car and another day a jeep and explored the whole island which was great. The restaurants were good and Kyoto was entertaining - food was amazing. Each night we sat at the Lobby Bar and Doris brought us our drinks with a smile. Saturday night we had the pleasure of listening to Lenny -- he makes your night! Last but not least, I have to give a special shout out to our fav, Pacan... he works in the Italian restaurant as well as bellboy and does a fantastic job at both. Yesyia (i think) cleaned our room every day and made it smell fresh and clean :) I can't wait to return to see all my new friends soon!

    Once again a fabulous time at Barcelo! Check in was a breeze and everyone went above and beyond to help out the guests. Theo at the Palm restaurant was amazing! He was always happy and it was obvious he enjoyed his job! The pool bar servers were all fantastic and we never waited for a beverage. The location of the resort is perfect and we definitely have the best beach on the island! We highly recommend the Barcelo and we will be back as soon as we can

    My husband and I visit Aruba twice a year, and we always stay at Barcelo. All of the rooms have spectacular views of Palm Beach and the Caribbean Sea. This trip was especially enjoyable, because the staff took extraordinary measures to keep us safe during the covid outbreak. We were able to relax and have fun, because we knew they were taking good care of us. Tables and chairs, including those on the beach, were thoroughly cleaned before each guest used them. Touch-free hand sanitizer was strategically placed near entrances, elevators, and restaurants. Door handles, elevator buttons, and counters were cleaned very frequently. There currently are no cruise ships traveling to the island, so the beaches have plenty of space. This beach is so spacious that we were able to set up beach chairs in the sun, and move into the shade during the hottest part of the day. The resort has recently added many more large palm trees, so there is ample shade if you desire. We relaxed at a perfect spot under a palapa. Barcelo continues to provide the attention to detail that we love. Multiple restaurants are on site with an array of well-presented meals. I highly recommend any of the fresh seafood options for both lunch and dinner. One of the things that I like most about Aruba is the friendliness of the residents. Once you come to Barcelo Aruba, you are family. There is a genuine kindness and graciousness among the people of Aruba, and particularly Barcelo, that you don't find in other places. There are so many people that made this trip enjoyable, it is hard to name them all, but I will do my best: Jenny, Sandra, and Martin saw to it that our reservations and room were perfect. Santiago, Guillerinda and Geraldo provided us with chairs so that we were comfortable on the beach. Claudia, Zotina, Pasan and Juan made sure our restaurant experiences were perfect. We received superb service at the restaurants, thanks to Theo, Patty, Maria, Carolina, Marlon, Roberto, Carlos, Fanny, and Dale. Thank you Sonis for cleaning our room. Thank you to Maricar, Edwin, Enrique, Erick and Doris, for providing our favorite drinks! Listening to Lenny Lake, our favorite entertainer at the Lobby Bar, is something you must do when you come here!

    This was my second visit to Aruba and my first time at Barcelo. I am already looking into booking again for next year! The food was delicious and there was plenty of variety to choose from. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Covid-19 protocols are followed and I felt safe during my entire stay at Barcelo. The poolside activities were also fun and entertaining. Can't wait to come back!
