A spectacular All-Inclusive resort right on the beach
The perfect setting for a peaceful tropical vacation
Located on the best fine white sand beaches in Palm Beach, only a few minutes from the capital (Oranjestad), the gorgeous “Cunucu” countryside and the international airport, this all-inclusive resort is a Caribbean oasis for relaxation and fun.
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.
The soft, Caribbean breeze combined with daytime excursions to the natural pools or to the museums in nearby towns will allow you to immerse yourself in the island’s cultural and social aspects.

    Mexico Lindo

    David, Our server was absolutely excellent! He went above and beyond to find hot sauce for me when we dined late and the restaurant had run out, even going so far as to bring pickled jalapeños in an effort to make my meal more tasty. He had a lovely attitude and nice smile as he ran around tirelessly working hard to make sure we all had what we needed throughout the meal. I wanted to take my meal to go because I wasn't able to eat much of it (gastric surgery) and I asked if I could get a box for what was left over, but unfortunately the hotel doesn't have them; David went and spoke with his supervisor and arranged to package my plate and have it delivered to my room. If you visit the Barcello and eat at Mexico Lindo, ask for David! He will go out of his way to make your experience special.

    If you want to relax this is not the place for you. If you want delicious meals, this is not the place for you! If you want to fight over chairs and be stressed go for it. I’ve never been so sick in my entire life. Same good day after day of the same rotates stale food

    Pool and beach bar - Robert and Arnold

    Great atmosphere, service, and friendly service with helpful banter about the hotel and surroundings. Conversation was excellent and made my nephew and I feel right at home. We thoroughly learned a lot about the hotel and made the stay more alive!!!
