The perfect setting for a peaceful tropical vacation

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.

    If its peace, calmness and paradise that you are in need of, with the assurance of safety precautions, especially now in the midst of a Pandemic! Barceló Aruba is your escape. Please allow me to share with you a heartfelt letter of gratitude expressed from me to the staff of this amazing place. I want to share so that you may know what to expect when you arrive: It is written that honor must be given where honor is due. With that said, I would like to take this opportunity on this platform to express my sincerest gratitude to the staff of Barceló Aruba. During this time that the world is being affected by this pandemic of the coronavirus, you have made it possible for my wife and I to have a sense of normality. We have had the pleasure of staying here before, so we know that the warmth of your hearts are genuine. Your candor and willingness to serve and help is like no other. I know that no one is perfect, however I would say Mr.Raúl Gonzalez, that everyone that I will mention below, represents the Barceló franchise in a way that exemplifies what hospitality truly is. I have been an Emergency Medical Technician for over 20 years and I know what it is to have to do my job and serve in dire times. I would like to just name a few of the employees that my wife and I have had the privilege of meeting ( some for the first time ,and some that we have met before). In no particular order- Jenny Rodgers- Guest relations - AKA " Momma, thank you for allowing me to come to you and bother you even though I know you were extremely busy, you never turn me away. You stopped and attended to me..You have spoiled me!" Marolyn Heyliger - Guest relations - " My Hero!!" We first met in 2017 and you still haven't send me away!! Always so helpful!
