    This resort is great for families. It’s in a great location where a lot of exploring and fun can be had! The beach is beautiful. However the pool and resort isn’t the cleanest. I also had a horrible time with food. My mom has a gluten allergy and there was not many options at the restaurants, and their understanding of a gluten allergy is quite lacking. Also, room service is AWFUL. We were in forced quarantine the first night even though we had our covid tests and vaccines. My mom’s portal wasn’t working so we couldn’t prove hers until morning. So we had to stay in our room and order room service for lunch and dinner. The food was very poor quality. I recommend eating at the beach club and Aruban seafood restaurant as much as possible as the rest of the options were severely lacking. Overall, I had a great time, but I don’t plan to be back.

    Royal Level is the only way to go!

    Sandra & Veronica at the Royal Level Club made our stay amazing! From making our dinner reservations to checking to make sure we were enjoying our stay, they are what true customer service used to be! Amazing ladies that enjoy taking care of people, if you are deciding whether to stay on Royal level or not, believe me it is worth the extra money, so take the plunge!

    Nice hotel with wonderful staff! My in-laws, husband and I and our 2.5 year old daughter just spent a week at the Barcelo and all had a wonderful time. We checked into the Royal Club and were upgraded to an amazing suite by Sandra (and the other woman whose name I forget, sorry!). The pool and beach were great for my daughter to swim in and the staff at the beach set up a perfect, shady spot for us every day. The resort requires masks in all common areas (and provides complimentary masks in your room) and there are lots of hand sanitizer stations everywhere, we felt very comfortable with the safety precautions. The food and drinks were good, definitely had the best food at the Royal Club. We had wonderful service from Rodell, George, Sylvester and Suyen. Rodell decorated each of our dessert plates personally, a Mickey Mouse for my daughter, so cute! We had a nice meal at L'Olio, Edgard (spelling?) was especially sweet with my daughter and was able to get her pesto pasta which wasn't on the menu. At Mexico Lindo, Carolina and Fanny were also great!

    Nice hotel with pleasant staff. Unfortunately, some of them weren’t very informed/trained? Someone asked where to get allergy pills & they said everywhere was closed. The gift shop down the hall was open. With pills. We were put in the wrong room type and had to wait till the next day for the right view. No fun repacking, but at least they made it right. Food was alright. Japanese restaurant was quite good. Italian had some good stuff but got a “filet” that was like shoe leather. Mexican food was quite tasty. I’m sure that with Covid things are more difficult so we tried to be understanding. The staff was super nice and so were the folks in the casino.

    Excellent
