Overview

On-site amenities include a casino, tennis courts and seven restaurants
Charges apply for in-room Wi-Fi

Barceló Aruba sits on Aruba's northwestern coast. The resort's 373 guest rooms and suites all feature private balconies or terraces, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and dark wood furnishings. Some upgraded accommodations also offer hot tubs. Recent visitors praised the property's clean and comfortable digs, though some felt the outdated decor did not justify the high room rate. The seven on-site restaurants also receive mixed feedback. While some past diners lamented the limited, subpar options, others enjoyed their meals, especially at the Italian and Japanese a la carte dining venues. After satiating their appetites, guests can test their luck in the casino, head down to the beach or post up on a chaise lounge by the free-form pool. The property's all-inclusive room rates also cover activities like kayaking, scuba diving lessons and tennis in addition to all meals and drinks.
