We spent 8 days with my wife at the Barceló last month, and it was one of the best experiences we have had on vacation. First of all the Hotel was incredible and spotless.

This was my first visit to Barcelo Aruba. I came to celebrate my 50th birthday and was not disappointed. The staff (Melitsa) was friendly and accommodating. The buffet (each meal) surpassed my expectations as well as Juan, Yuri and Jean in the Palm Buffet area. The beach wait staff (Jacque) was a pure delight. I am already looking forward to...

Elevator stop working one night. Fire alarm went off another night. House keeping cleans rooms when ever they want, no set time. Over crowded. Food made us both sick and not a very big selection at that.

We visited from April 29-May 13, 2017 and stayed in the Royal Club. This was our first visit since the Barcelo group took over.
