    This was our second visit- our first was for our honeymoon five years ago. We could not have been more impressed. Manchebo is hands-down the best resort we have been to. Everyone is so incredibly friendly and helpful- especially Harold in the Chophouse, and the waitress who works the beach at Pega Pega. The food is absolutely top notch. The facilities we thought were nice the first time we came, and then they went through and made a bunch of improvements and it’s even more gorgeous. Didn’t think it was possible! It never feels crowded, we never had to wait for a table, worry about getting the dinner reservation time we wanted, or worry about getting a palapa. It was quiet, and the beach and the water are absolutely immaculate. The whole stay was just luxury and relaxation from the second we checked in from the second we left. Also, it was our anniversary and they left special treats in our room when we checked in, I nearly cried! We are already counting down to our next visit.

    This is the property to stay at when in Aruba

    This was our first time to the island and first time to Manchebo Beach. We really enjoyed staying here and the staff at Manchebo is the reason. Everything ran really smoothly and everyone was always quick with a smile and friendly greeting. Rebecca at Ike's Bistro was especially friendly and helpful. The first night, we ate at Omakase Sushi Bar and had pretty good sushi with excellent service. We ate at Ike's Bistro for breakfast the next morning. The breakfast food was decent, but the service and ocean view were even better. The beach area was great because I never felt it was too crowded, the white sand beach was nice to walk on and the ocean water was crystal clear. We were interested to see that the sand drops off pretty quickly and you can go from knee level to shoulder level to not being able to touch the bottom in a few steps! We also enjoyed the couples massage at Spa del Sol on the property. This is a well run spa and they did a wonderful job. We really enjoyed our experience at the spa and wish we could have enjoyed it more often! Upon leaving the resort and getting back home, I was disheartened to realize that I had left a valuable item behind. Amazingly, I was contacted by the resort and they shipped the item back to me! What wonderful service - during and even AFTER the stay! One last experience I want to describe is the Cooking Class. My wife and I signed up and it turned out that we were the only two who did (everyone else was enjoying the beaches!). We got a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the kitchens from Chef Sandro and Chef Joyce. They were so friendly and had lots of great information. We are not complete strangers to cooking, but it was fun and interesting to learn to cook some local foods. We have even made the dessert (Kesio) upon returning home to share with the family. It was a great time and all of us (the chefs and us) sat down together to have lunch with what we made during the class. I think it was a great value and one of the highlights of our time at Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa.

    First time at Manchebo-lovely / friendly/ welcoming staff: Special thanks to all::: Eloy in the sushi restaurant ( made extra efforts to make sure we were well cared for) , Jene in Pega Pega, Etienne house greeter, Joseil on the beach bar patrol,( thanks for recommendations for the dance clubs),and Andrew the towel/beachchair manager always on point, Tara makes excellent omelets ( and special requests), as does Phalene at the Pega pega restaurant, Rebecca the the morning host ( loved the stories about her little one),Juan at the steakhouse made our last evening special. The beach is amazing in this location- as to the price for the hotel,, a bit much compared to other vacations- the deposit and the final bill took a while to figure out as I had made a deposit upon booking, then I made a deposit the day of arrival to expedite check in,, then another payment was due prior to check in and then the final payment at checkout.Need to streamline this process. I met a lot of repeat customers in the pool,,, all of them very happy to return with great stories,,,I'll return to the area of Manchebo beach but I will look for additional values at the hotels nearby.

    A Holiday of the Highest Quality

    There are many superlatives that could be used to describe the Manchebo through every aspect of your stay. From arrival to departure, you can rest assured to benefit from the best possible service here. Josuel, Rebecca, Junior, Phoebus, Fabian, Rebecca and Ana Libia went above and beyond the call of duty to provide the best possible customer excellence. Having said that, all the staff were very polite and welcoming. Nothing is too difficult and all have a caring, friendly and professional manner about them. We loved eating at Ike's and the Chophouse equally as much as we did at the Pega Pega bar where there is a more casual and relaxed atmosphere. The food and drink in all restaurants is of the highest quality. We went all inclusive and felt it represented great value, with an additional voucher for $40 each to dine out of the resort if staying 4 nights or more on the AI option. The beach is stunning, but somewhat breezy, but much needed with the heat so be sure to bring towel pegs! There is also a prompt beach waiter service to provide you with a refreshing drink or cocktail We will definitely be back!

    This is our fifth stay at Manchebo. Unfortunatly we were not able to go last year due to ilness, but as soon as we got out of the cab the staff welcomed us like we had never missed a year. The resort is first class, staff wonderful and friendly, and the management cares about your experience. I would like to mention several associates that stood out and I am sure I will miss someone and apologize; William, Stephanie, Rebecca, Phepbus, Sara, Alahandra, Majida, Carman, Patrick, Vivian. We so look forward to our 2020 visit
