Who doesn’t love expansive beaches and over 300 days of sunshine a year? Aruba is home to endless hotels along some of the most beautiful beachfront you’ll ever see.
In this video, we’ll tell you all about the Barcelo Hotel Group’s Aruba property. This was our second time in Aruba and it will certainly not be our last. While some areas could be improved, we had an overall positive experience and the location on Palm Beach is absolutely unbeatable! If you’re traveling as a family, solo, friends or couple, Aruba really does have something for everyone and it’s impossible to be bored, unless that is…you want to be.
While dining left much to be desired, the property really offers so much to its guests, particularly at the Royal Level. From a private, top floor check in to a lounge available to guests at all times, the Royal Level is a worthwhile upgrade.
The beachfront is arguably the best feature of the property. Be sure to get up early if you’re looking for shade, but there are ample beach chairs available for guests on the sandy shores of Palm Beach.
As a royal level guest, you have access to a bar on the beach as well, without the need to go to the pool bar. If you’re debating between a suite and a standard room, we recommend at least upgrading to the Royal Suite. However, we have to say – the suite was pretty incredible! Direct oceanfront views and a massive living, dining and bedroom, you cannot go wrong.
Directly behind the property are a number of shops and restaurants if you’re looking for a place to go after the sun sets over the beautiful ocean. Max and I were on the all-inclusive plan so we did not explore the restaurants this time, but heard amazing things about the food in Aruba just outside the hotels.
You can also buy trinkets, jewelry, purses and crafts at the local night market. Lastly, the activities available are truly exceptional. There is something for everyone in Aruba, whether you’re looking to go to the spa, experience intense water sports or explore the island.
