Barcelo Aruba ★★★★

Occidental Aruba

The Barceló Aruba which was previously known as the Occidental Grand Aruba is located in the heart of the trendy and exciting Palm Beach area of Aruba. With an array of dining and entertainment options at your doorstep and an equally varied choice in-house this is one location from which you won’t want to return home.

The Barceló Aruba offers you the perfect opportunity to completely relax, enjoying dips in the large pool and sunbathing in the lovely gardens. Or with the exciting sports activities on offer, with on-site tennis courts, organized activities and all sorts of water sports on the beach such as snorkelling, scuba diving and beach volleyball.

Due to its clever design and incredible location on Palm Beach, all 370 balconied rooms uniquely get to enjoy both the beautiful sunrise and dramatic light display that is sunset on Aruba. This is one of the highlights of any day and equates to a Caribbean equivalent of the northern lights.

The rich and varied hotel cuisine will recharge your batteries with international food, buffet and great bar snacks available in its 7 restaurants and 6 bars. And there’s also a perfect spot for fun and nightlife. From a casino to DJ sessions on the dance floor our guests are guaranteed enjoyment, so much so as to make them lose all notion of time.

The Barceló Aruba offers 370 rooms across 10 different categories most of which offer sea view. Spacious and comfortable they combine modern touches of colour with classical furniture which create a warm and cosy atmosphere. They come equipped with one or 2 double beds, perfect for a couple or as a family, as well as a terrace or balcony with outdoor furniture. The prime location of this beachside hotel allows for stunning views of the sea and Aruba’s beaches.
