Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

We are actually still here. Hotel and grounds are spotless. Food is horrendous. Seeing more people order pizza and going to Dunkin' Donuts. They should take a lesson from Jamaica all inclusive! More to follow

“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. ”
