Wedding&Honeymoon Trip

Lmw92321 on Oct 24, 2021

We decided last year to have our wedding/ honeymoon in Aruba. We did lots of research and excitedly decided on Barcelo. We spent almost 1 yr planning. We are thrilled to say, we are so glad we went with Barcelo. We loved the resort, the staff, the food, the room, the pool, the sunset....everything. We worked with Njurely the wedding planner and she made it easy and mostly seamless, even though we basically did all communicating through email. Once we arrived and met her in person we felt so relaxed and just enjoyed every moment. Our wedding was a dream come true....everything we hoped for and more. The wedding location on the beach was gorgeous, the cocktail hour, the steel drums, the reception on the beach , it was all perfect. The food, the DJ, the officiant, the servers amazing. We can't say enough. We had a group of 30 including us and everyone loved the resort, rooms, food, the wedding, reception, whole experience. We had our dinner the night before the wedding on the balcony of the Italian restaurant which was awesome and the staff was perfect. Our room was upgraded and amazing, the little extras were so perfect, the gal who cleaned our room was wonderful. We were so happy the whole 2 weeks we were there. Every person who we encountered who worked at /for the resort was excellent, professional and polite. They all go above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. We appreciate it all and can't wait to go back...maybe for our 1st and every anniversary. Thank you everyone.

Dinner at Arubian Seafood with Edward

catherine-coco-lam on Oct 23, 2021

A delightful visit at Aruba so far at Barcelo. Right when we arrived, actually, Edward greeted us with some delicious mai thais (I hope I spelled that right) and then we had the pleasure of having him as our waiter for dinner! I ordered the grilled tuna and the mashed potatoes were *chef's kiss*. The best part, though, was the service. Edward is so friendly and even recommended a delicious ice cream and cake dessert to top it all off. All in all, great visit so far.

Horacio is the best bartender in the world! He hooked us up with all the drinks! The seafood was amazing at the restaurant. My family couldn’t get enough! Edward was one of the best waiters as well. He suggested the greatest meals! I wish i could live here forever so they can make me feel like a queen again! I love the barcelo!
