Great property, very clean rooms, good food especially Kyoto and Lolio. Bu the best thing is the staff: Marisabel at Front Desk, Mariangelica and Aurelia of Management, Claudia at Beach Club, Juancho and Elena at buffet and our cleaning lady which we never got her name. We had a blast. We suggest try the Dinner on the beach. Wort every penny!!

Hotel's Favourite
We returned to Barcelo for July 4th and it was amazing. Roland always greets us with a big smile when we arrive. Although we missed the usual fireworks on the 4th of July, we enjoyed the noon tribute to America. This trip was especially monumental. With the help of Natasha and Belinda who helped my soon-to-be son-in-law arrange a romantic proposal moment on the beach, which included dinner for the newly engaged couple. A shout out to Tomi +386 40 146 520 (WhatsApp) for his drone navigating video that captured the moment for them to share. Juan attended to every detail imaginable to make the romantic dinner event special. Eduardo made accommodations for us at the Japanese restaurant where we sat at tatami-style tables and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Eduardo also arranged for me to have a cup of tea at night when he was in the Buffet. Franny is always a pleasure to see and we were happy to meet up with her in the Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed an amazing meal. Patti, Beth and Shaniqua attentive to us while we ate breakfast and lunch. Joyce and Rodell added to the experience at the Royal Club restaurant. Rodell's talent in decorating a plate is spectacular. The pool and the beach were as beautiful as ever, as was the sunset. A special thank you to Jimmy, Patti and Ricky who provided daytime activities and Alan who hosted nightly events in the night club. We are so happy the night club has many interactive events. The music at the lobby bar was great and many people danced in the evening. The increased nightly events, especially the bands were a great addition to the experience. Thank you to our Barcelo family for making our stay at Barcelo so much fun. We look forward to our return.

Updating my recent review: Still want to make a point to say the staff here is amazing! So kind and they really care about the guest experience. I wanted to shout out Carlos again, who was the best! He always made sure to come by and check on us at the beach to see if we needed drinks or anything else. Thanks again, Carlos! Also, Martin was very nice along with the rest of the guest services staff. They made right by us in our honeymoon when we had made some complaints. The buffet food could use some work and that is why I rate this place as a 4. However, Barcelo took the time to hear our concerns which they did not have to do. And all of the bartenders make a good drink! The beach is amazing, clean and beautiful. This was definitely our favorite part about the resort. However, if you want a cabana on the beach i would recommend getting there by 6am to claim it. We showed up at 615am and there were only a few left, you can just lay some towels or belongings on them and come back down later. There were activities very close by, such as snorkeling, jet skis, parasailing, etc. I recommend Aruba water sports or arts. Very accommodating people here and we greatly appreciate you all for making our special vacation even better !

Every year I go to Aruba and stay at the Barcelo with Royal club. Every year people ask me why I go back. Aside from Aruba itself being the most beautiful, safe, and clean island, with the most perfect weather, I realize it’s the people I’ve met and have become friends with over these almost 20 years that makes me always want to go back. Let’s start with the Royal Club itself. Sandra, Veronica, and Natalie are the beautiful people who run it, and without them it wouldn’t be the same. Sandra and Veronica are extremely helpful in assisting guests with whatever they need, consistently going above and beyond. They’re super friendly, helpful, and overall a joy to see. Check in and out with them is a breeze and anything you need, they’re willing to assist. Just seeing their smiling faces every day, makes it worth upgrading to the Royal Club. Natalie even went ahead and helped my father fix his phone so he could connect to the wifi. They’re just the most wonderful staff! I love them! George and the crew including Joyce and Rodell are the most entertaining and amazing staff at any restaurant. George is a special person who is always delightful and hilarious to be around. Everyone loves him and I’m pretty sure people come back just to be around him! They’re all so friendly though and sweet while accommodating any needs guests have. Rodell personally ensures smiles on the guests faces with his adorable dessert pictures on the plates. The Royal Club has a private beach bar which Armando and Francisco are excellent at running. When they’re working, they bring a friendly and fun vibe to the beach and once again are always so accommodating to whatever the guests need. They are so personable and so sweet it’s like you’ve know them forever. Same is true for Nukisha. She is one of the nicest people working at the beach ensuring all guests receive drinks and anything they need. She’s so fun to talk to, and just an overall wonderful person. Also Chris and Nilva in the towel hut are so fun to talk to and very helpful to the guests. It’s so nice seeing them every day before heading to the beach! Edgard in the buffet and sometimes Kyoto, the Japanese restaurant, is also an asset to the resort. Super willing to assist guests in anything they need, he’s wildly patient and very friendly. Any time we ate at either restaurant, he was there conversing with guests, making sure they were all okay. I’ve traveled to a lot of great places all over the world but I’m telling you these incredible people mentioned above, make coming back to Aruba a priority year after year. I assure you if they weren’t there, it wouldn’t be the same. They all make you feel like you’re with old friends or family. The resort is beautiful, the suites are gorgeous (especially the master where we stayed), and the entire resort is kept very clean. With Barcelo and the island being what it is, I promise you will not regret your stay! Happy travels! ❤️
