The staff are so friendly and make you feel at ease. All the restaurants are really nice with a good range to suit most tastes, even the standard buffet restaurant has themed nights so you get quite a good variety. The alcohol selection with the all inclusive is really good, even brand names are included. The rooms are impeccably clean...

This was the best vacation. The barcelo and its staff were outstanding. Especially Marco, Veronica, Hazel, amd Daniel. The food variety was great as well. I would greatly recommend the Barcelo Aruba all inclusive.

The bed was a little bouncy but very comfortable. The theme restaurants exceeded expectations - the Aruban, Italian, Oriental, and Mexican were all excellent, with great service. Service...

Pros: The staff is very friendly. The grounds are beautiful. The beach is breathtaking. The Mexican and Hibachi Restaurants are very good. I was always able to find an available cabana on the beach. Centrally located. Floats included. Loved the mattress. Cons: The pool bar was always out of alcohol. I mean, basic alcohol (ie: rum, vodka, etc). The hotel...

“All rooms say ocean view, but if you do not ask for pool/ocean view you will be looking at a parking lot and another hotel.”

“Scuba with Aruba Watersports, just behind theBarcelo. They have great service and safety consciousness. On one trip, we pulled two distressed tourists out of the water - they fell off their jet ski at sea, and couldn't get back. Ask for CC or Lillian at the dive shop. ”
