We were very pleased with the friendly and helpful staff, quiet setting, wide white sand beach, romantic setting, good food, and friendly pub atmosphere. Great combination of value and quality. You can book trips with the helpful concierge, or just chill out on the beach with your favorite drink.

We just returned from a great trip. Eight of us including two teenagers. We couldn't have been better served.The staff couldn't do enough to make us happy and comfortable. The rooms were lovely-great rainfall shower! We were treated like welcome house guests. Magda at the front desk is irreplaceable. She took special interest to make sure our stay was perfect--made all our reservations for events, taxis, restaurants and followed up to be sure they were correct and on time. The beach staff, housekeeping, wait staff, etc. were all helpful and friendly. You feel right at home. We felt very special that we didn't feel at the larger hotels. You won't be disappointed at Manchebo Beach! It was our 50th anniversary, and the hotel even sent champagne to our room. We had a room change and didn't have to raise a finger--they did it all!

Thank you for sharing your comments and glad to read you had a great 50th Anniversary trip.
I agree with you fully that the Manchebo team members make this place a home away from home for many. We will especially recognize Magda for excellent customer service.
We look forward to welcome you back in the future.

We just got back & want to turn around and go right back. Everything was perfect! We were upgraded to the second floor beach front suite upon check-in. The decor was beautiful, and it included a kitchenette with a small refrigerator & microwave. The only small downside of the suite is that the view is partially obstructed by the roof of the restaurant in the living area - but this was of no concern to us. We were on the all-inclusive plan, so we didn't utilize the suite as someone would normally. The room was cleaned and pristine every day of our stay.

The staff is amazingly kind and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Special thanks to Alejandra (our beer assistant,) Magdalena, Lincoln & Nacio. When you go you will remember their names because they are just that wonderful!

We would recommend everyone stay at Manchebo, I can't imagine going anywhere else in Aruba!

Room Tip: If the view is important, definitely do oceanfront. But you will be at the beach always, so might a...

From the moment we walked into the resort it seemed everything was perfect.
Room was on the small side but very clean and updated.
Front desk service was great! Especially Swinda who helped me to celebrate my husband's bday with balloons at breakfast and balloons in the room... The pool area was nice and relaxing.. Definitely not your big resort pool but just big enough for what we needed... My only issue with the pool that at breakfast and dinnertime it's really un usable because Ike's bistro restaurant serves breakfast and dinner poolside and it's basically closed... However, I preffered the beach anyway... Always was able to get chairs and towels and a hut (palapa) or whatever you called them, at anytime during the day...Beach was NEVER crowded always relaxing and peaceful.. Beach was beautiful LARGE and very clean... Water, to die for!!! Would like to make sure I mention Jason, who was our server at Ike's for two nights of dinner, he was exceptional... Also want to mention Lincoln who made us excellent drinks at the Pega Pega and also Alejandro's beach service was fantastic. Spa was WONDERFUL... Plan to come back in 2016.!!! Thank you Manchebo for a much needed extremely relaxing vacation...>!!!!

My husband and I visited the Manchebo in May and I can honestly say that the pictures you find on tripadvisor are on point. The resort is simply beautiful. From the moment we stepped inside the lobby I knew I had chosen the perfect place for us to simply unwind and do nothing. We are not beach people, but every single day and most nights we were on the beach, under the palapas, enjoying that fabulous Aruba breeze that you feel all day long. We were in Heaven! It rained on my birthday for about 25 minutes and not one single person who was lying on the beach at Manchebo left to take cover. We stayed and patiently waited for Mother Nature to finish and when she did, the sky opened up and the Sun started shining again.

My goal was to find a place where we could simply relax. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I knew I had found the place. The posted pictures are true representations of what you will find at the resort. The reviews are on point. The staff is absolutely wonderful. The bartenders are great and will make your drinks as strong as you can handle. Although we did not do the all inclusive package, we did make happy hour on most nights and enjoyed the drinks and the atmosphere of the Pega bar. One night we actually closed the bar down, speaking with a couple we had met from Scotland.

We had a unforgettable vacation and we were fortunate to secure a room and will be visiting again this year. I already counted. I have 77 working days to go.

Thanks Manchebo for making our stay one that we will never forget. I have a feeling that you will be seeing us every year. The only difference is I will be packing more beach wear since we lived on the beach the entire time.

Your new friends- The Smiths

Recently stayed at manchebo beach as the final part of our honeymoon after a road trip in USA. Arrived tired and anxious about Aruba as we had never visited the island before and was instantly thrilled by the hotel and the resort and the reception we received on arrival at manchebo.
Seamless check in with everything explained to us regarding restaurants, the room and the beach etc and provided with complimentary mojitos to welcome us. The room was spacious, well appointed (we had a room that walked on to the beach from the patio) and tastefully decorated. Huge bed, amazing air conditioning, lovely bathroom (more like one big wet room) and a lovely cosy feel about the hotel.
The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful and everything you would expect from a Caribbean beach, white silky sand and clear blue sea. Plenty of palapas on the beach, really spaced out so no one is on top of each other. The breakfast buffet was great, including the presence of the birds and the iguanas! The pool area is small but it's not really busy when you have the beautiful beach and sea in front of the hotel.
Overall the resort had a laid back, relaxed and personal feel to it which we loved, it was a much nicer area than the high rise hotels which felt a little bit like benidorm!
We ate in both restaurants at the hotel during our stay, on the whole the food and service was very good despite a couple of misses (slightly over cooked steak on one night) we also ate at Matthews at the hotel two doors down the beach which was good and at elements at the bucati and Tara hotel next door which was a little pricey but was worth it for the beach side location and the iPad menus!
A lovely end to our honeymoon, excellent and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for you and the very welcome happy hour on cocktails every day from 5-7 was most welcome!
Lovely place would definitely return.

This was our fifth trip to Aruba, and fifth time staying at Manchebo. It's the best beach in Aruba. It's wide soft sand is the best on the island, and it is not over crowded like other highrise resorts. This is the reason we, along with so many others return year after year.

This year was extra special though, we got married with 65 of our friends and family on the beach at Manchebo (we had gotten engaged there the year prior) I can not say enough nice things about our wedding planner Nyoka. She is the hardest working, nicest, pleasant, and a just a huge asset for Manchebo. She answered all of my questions leading up to the wedding in numerous emails, called me several times throughout the planning process, and was incredibly sweet. I love her!

We had a welcome cocktail hour, as well as the wedding at Manchebo. Each and every person that worked there made my guests feel welcome. I wish I could rememeber all of the staff's names, but they are all GREAT. Both events went very well. The wedding food was better than expected. The pavilion venue looked gorgeous. DJ Tino did a great job too!

SO many of my guests said "this was the best wedding they'd ever been to" They also stated "when they come back..." Aruba is a beautiful island, but really Manchebo makes it somewhere we will revisit for years and years to come.

Thank you again to Nyoka and the entire staff for EVERYTHING. See you next year friends :)
