A spectacular All-Inclusive resort right on the beach
The perfect setting for a peaceful tropical vacation
Located on the best fine white sand beaches in Palm Beach, only a few minutes from the capital (Oranjestad), the gorgeous “Cunucu” countryside and the international airport, this all-inclusive resort is a Caribbean oasis for relaxation and fun.
Swimming, scuba diving or sailing in the calm, turquoise water, basking under the sun and enjoying the pool with a cocktail in hand, or trying one’s luck at the hotel’s casino are some of the activities available at this resort.
The soft, Caribbean breeze combined with daytime excursions to the natural pools or to the museums in nearby towns will allow you to immerse yourself in the island’s cultural and social aspects.

    Barcelo Aruba

    just got back from staying at the barcelo in aruba...i have stayed there many times and as always was not disappointed...even though this year was different since it was very quiet...didn't seem to be more than 10 people at the pool or beach the whole week though Friday it seemed to be some more people there...the service was great as always from the moment you walk in and are greeted by roland till the moment you leave !!!..it would be hard pressed to find a bad word to say about anyone that works there...belinda Marolyn and Ivette though not at the 1st club were awesome as always. And Jenny at the front desk was great!!...Martijn helped alot with my dinner reservations...speaking of dinner being a solo traveler I usually will just eat at the buffet because when I'm waiting for my food at a restaurant is when I really feel uncomfortable but with the buffet being closed I ate at the Italian restaurant which was serving 3 different menus...Marlene the maitre di along with waiters michael Carlos and rouel all were great and made me feel at ease...and the food was terrific!!..the bartender ( i dont know his name) made me some very tasty chocolate martinis every night..just a few more people I need to mention...claudia in the beach restaurant such an awesome person..Marikar a lobby bartender and mindy from the Asian restaurant are terrific.. my housekeeper clariana was great...even Eugene ( I think is his name)..im not sure what he does but I think he's some kind of restaurant manager as i saw him all over the resort..ive known him from his days working in the buffet and he always remembers me and has a friendly greeting for me...im sure im forgetting some people and I am truly sorry for that as every single worker there deserves to be individually mentioned..for the island itself it was hard to believe how quiet it was as I ended up going on a private dive and a private horseback ride!!!...it really was a great vacation and if your undecided whether u want to make the trip or not dont give it a 2nd thought and go!!!..its well worth the extra steps u need to make!!

    Water leaking down the walls and floor was very wet and slippery.

    I ask for pool side room and was told none were available. There was not many people at the resort. No more than 10-15 in the pool at midday! I saw many rooms in Tower 1 that were empty. Tower 2 was closed. Nobody to serve drinks in pool area. Way too much money for all inclusive and this service and food.

    Aruba Wedding

    I just want to start off by saying, this is why I love Barcelo, Aruba. From the moment we arrived to the hotel it was a wonderful experience. The staff was very accommodating and love their customers. My wife and I had our wedding here and our wedding planner KIMBERLY was able to make everything possible. Even with our last minute demands and little tweaks it was the wedding my wife and I always dreamed of having. Definitely a place to be for any occasion.
