My wife and I had to get out of Dodge for a mental break and a friend recommend Barcelo Aruba. We are very happy that we took his advice and booked the trip. Words cannot describe how amazing the rooms beach, grounds and staff are. 15 minutes from the airport and we are in Paradise. If anyone is contemplating the Barcelo, make sure you book a room on the Royal Club level, 9th floor. The perks that come with this package are awesome. Unlimited reservations at the restaurants, top shelf alcohol, private club restaurant, private club beach bar and an amazing concierge service.
