Had a good time but.
     4/5 Visited in January 2017

All inclusive liquor and beer. Real nice pool and beach. Had no problem finding loungers and chairs. The food was very good with lots of options. My complaint is unrestricted smoking is allowed anywhere outside at the beach and pool. There are ashtrays everywhere with no non smoking areas designated. For this reason I would not go back. Not only do I dislike the smell but I have a chronic Lung Disease and must avoid smokers and other fumes.

Iguanas Everywhere!!
     5/5 Visited in December 2016

The pool was really fun nice party and music but what I enjoyed the most was seeing the Iguanas just everywhere, they were walking around just like they were staying at the resort. They were so funny, just as stiff as can be then they'd move and you know it was real. The taxi was quick and pretty straightforward, about 12.00 dollars each way. Everything seemed clean and neat bathroom and changing areas were clean. The food in the buffets was really good lot of variety, drinks were a little strong, but if you do get a drink get it fresh made not from the frozen drink machine it was gross. Beach was really fun with the floaters, but no umbrellas. Cabanas only for resort guest and all the visitor beach chairs are way in the back. Luckily we found some chair right under a group of palm trees so we were shaded most of the time. Overall had a good time.

Loved it!
     5/5 Visited in April 2018

First cruise ever, and Aruba was our last destination. I just wanted to relax somewhere nice after so much exploring. Unfortunately I did not plan ahead of time...Luckily, Shore Excursioneer helped with last minute booking to Occidental. Went on there site and found many options in Aruba I just wanted to relax. So we booked All Inclusive for 2 (and also parasailing). We took a taxi, checked in, and we choosed a nice area by pool. The resort is beautiful, clean, spacious. The staff is attentive. The food was more than great! They have so may options we never go hungry. It beach front so the view is beautiful and relaxing. Weather was perfect. This is what I wanted to do before heading back home. I also book parasailing (see my review on that one!) and they have other rentals if you are in the mood.

Great hotel and beach
     4/5 Visited in December 2017

We loved this all-day pass at the Barcelo so much in 2016 that we booked it again this year when we would be in port again. The day was wonderful - same fabulous grounds, decent buffet, friendly staff and beautiful beach. There were a couple of hiccoughs this time, unfortunately. The front-desk staff did not have the wrist bands, told us to wait for 30 minutes and, when we checked back, told us they had been forgotten. That meant that every time we wanted something, we had to dig into our bag to find the receipt to prove that we had paid for the day pass. That also meant we lost 30 minutes out of our day to sit and wait at the beginning. As well, once we were on the beach, we were told that the Barcelo no longer has a beach bar. While the server was willing to get us drinks from the pool bar, it was not the same and would have been a hassle for us to get drinks ourselves. Also, the palapas are reserved for "hotel guests" and specific families. It makes it hard to get out of the strong Caribbean sun when you are there all day. All in all, a great day: beautiful grounds, fabulous beach and friendly staff. But the hiccoughs may be enough to have us looking at alternatives for next time. The beach and buffets, however, may draw us back.

The resort is a short cab ride from port $14 one way for 5. Check in was easy and friendly in no time we were on our way to breakfast. The food was excellent, much better than other resorts for a day we have visited. The grounds are clean and well kept. The staff was friendly. The provided towels at the pool. The pool was clean and relaxing. The beach had plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The swim up bar was quick but did not have many drinks and what they had was not very good. (watered down pina coladas). I would recommend this resort and would return.

Best cruise excursion!
     5/5 Visited in May 2017

Booked the Barcelo Occidental through ShoreExcursioneer without any problems. As this was our first time to Aruba, I didn't know what to expect but as it turned out this was the best excursion on our cruise. The taxi ride cost $14 each way for the 4 of us. We arrived at the resort around 9:30, check in was fast and we were on the beach by 9:45. There were plenty of available loungers at the pool and we had no problem finding loungers with umbrellas at the beach. The beach is clean and the water is very clear and calm. Perfect for swimming and floating. The buffet was amazing with plenty of food. Drinks and beer were very good. I will plan another trip to this resort again.

After getting off ship took taxi, to hotel, went into lobby to the desk. Paid, then was told there were no more wrist bands so had to keep receipt on person (4 of us) she pointed to the beach told to have a nice day. Went to beach there was no one to ask about chaise lounges or talapas. Found out that all talapas were reserved for hotel guests. So on to find umbrella. 20 min later found a worker got a tent for $20. Found no waiters on beach so went back to pool found a bar, showed receipt got drinks went back to beach. No waiters showed so always had to go to pool bar. Husband likes Bud lite, he couldn't have that, it's for hotel guests only. No food allowed on beach so went to find food, finally found security guard pointed us in right direction. Nice buffet, but had to eat in pairs to leave someone on beach to watch stuff. We did Mr Snachos' 3 days earlier $35 less a person had our own talapa and waiter that brought us anything we wanted at any time, was always right there. I guess I expected more from this high end resort. Silly me.

Lovely Beach Day

Check in was a breeze at the front desk with the hotel's friendly staff. Lots of shade with many palapas and beach lounge chairs. We were blown away by the large buffet! The choices and quality were amazing! This is a must for those who wish a quiet and relaxing day at the beach.

Loved the resort !
     5/5 Visited in February 2017

Arrived in Aruba for the day from the Navigator of the Seas. The resort was a great option for us which included use of all the facilities, lounge chairs, towels, non motorized water sports, food and drinks. The staff at the resort were very friendly and you were treated as if you were staying with them for the week. We took the public transit bus right outside the cruise terminal, super easy 15 minute bus ride (bus 10) cost was $5.00 usd return trip each or $10.00 usd for all day pass.
