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.

    Perfect location, great amenities!

    Resort was nice. Pool could use some repairs, but overall was nice. If you have a rental car, getting out of the resort parking lot is a tedious process. Breakfast was good. Lunch was ok. We only ate at 2 of the resort restaraunts (hibachi & italian) and they were good. Definetly take time to eat dinner off the resort as there are some amazing restaraunts on the island!

    Amazing stay at Barcelo!

    I absolutely loved my stay at Barcelo last week! The resort is beautiful! Loved the pool, beach, staff and restaurants! I never had a problem getting a chair at the pool or beach last week and there were plenty of chairs until at least 10am. The Italian restaurant spinach ravioli's are so good! Loved the Hibachi and Mexican restaurants too! The location is also great and you can walk to the shops and restaurants across the street. Thank you Barcelo! Had a blast there and I can't wait to go back!

    Overall great accomodations

    Overall great accommodations. Service was great, resort was clean and well maintained. Food was at best mediocre. We were disappointed with the all inclusive package. The breakfast was the best meal. The buffets were terrible and bland. The restaurants looked fancy but the food was buffet quality. They were very stingy with the alcohol. We even witnessed a bartender putting his thumb over the top of the alcohol bottle and pretend to pour it. This was the only downside to the resort. We wished that we could have stayed here without the all inclusive package. The amenities were nice. The parking situation was annoying because we had to validate our parking ticket each time we left the resort and then had to wait for the security guard to walk down and open the gate.
