We went to the Barcelo as a part of a two week family vacation. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and clean. The best restaurants were the Kyoto Asian restaurant as well as actually the buffet. I love the fact that this particular hotel is so close to the ocean. The entertainment is fun and there...

We were at the Barcelo on a day pass from a cruise ship. I really debated between four and five stars. But I had to go with four as that is what I would give, but for what it was, and the price paid, I think more of a five. Yes, it's an all inclusive. But I have to say...

This resort is by far the best in terms of cleanliness, space and respect for ones privacy. Never over crowded. The best beach spot on Palm Beach. The other hotels are too crowded with visitors packing the beach, like herds of cattle. The bonus is the all-inclusive option which includes food & alcohol. Breakfast & Lunch are outstanding. Dinner quality...

We stayed here from April 8-14. First time in Aruba. Barcelo was suggested to us by family friends who have been coming to Aruba for over 20 years. Perhaps it was the time we booked the trip, but there wasn't much of a difference in price between a regular room and Royal Level room. The Royal Level is the way...

The hotel was clean, we had a 2 couples with room issues but the hotel went above what was expected on the accommodations. It is a widely used hotel and you need to make Reservations for dinner ahead of time. Breakfast, lunch, and pool side grill was good. Buffet style meals. It is a Dutch country so expect different style...
