“Lovely, quiet, resort on a gorgeous beach!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at the Manchebo Beach Resort for our 20th anniversary. We loved this resort and can't imagine staying anywhere else on Aruba. The staff is extremely helpful and welcoming. In a day or so they know you by name and remember your favorite drinks. They have the best mojito's and serve you one at check in. The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept great all week. It is so quiet and peaceful, exactly what we needed to unwind from our busy lives. No need to rush out and reserve a shady palapa, there are plenty (we went out at 11:30 one day and were in the front row). We found everyone working and staying at this resort to be friendly and down to earth. Happy hour is 2 for 1 drinks daily, we met many wonderful guests at this fun beach side bar with a gorgeous view. Had dinner one night at Ike's, it was delish! Monday night is Lobster night, yummy! Can't wait to come back to Manchebo!

Went to Aruba with my 8-year old daughter, and we had a great time. The staff is just amazing; friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is located at the most beautiful beach I've ever seen, I've visited eg Bali, Thailand, Dominican republic but his is the best beach so far... The food is great, I would go for the All Inclusive option if I get the chance to visit Manchebo again. Alhambra mall with a few restaurants and a supermarket is a 3 min walk away, Bobs Pizza is across the street. We had a garden view which was ok except from the construction work going on. The beds are soft and very comfortable, I've never slept better at any hotel. Definitely worth the 14 hours flight from Sweden!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor.
Were glad to hear that your 14 hours flight was worth it.
A good night sleep is indeed very important were happy that you found our beds soft and comfortable. At the moment we don't have any construction going on at the rooms. We are only building a gym between Bucuti and Manchebo, but there is not much noise involved,
We hope to see you back for another great time!

I can't think of a better way to spend a week at the beach- and I am a native Floridian! Manchebo is by far the most beautiful beach you can imagine. The Bali style Spa is located beach front and offers wonderful massages (we had one each day!) with the soothing Aruba breezes blowing through. The rooms are very nicely appointed and comfortable - no elevators and formality of a lobby - this resort motel has a European flair but in a very tropical and casual atmosphere. Much of the staff at Manchebo have been there for over 20 years. We have returned each year for a very warm and genuine welcome by the staff at the front desk, the restaurants, the bar, and the ladies in the spa. The Bistro and the French Steakhouse have continued to upgrade their menus yearly and the new Chef, Ever, has an outstanding menu to offer. We were happy to remain at Manchebo for all of our meals this trip. Each morning a Yoga session is offered in the outdoor pavilion beach front. What a perfect way to start your day....yoga with the sea breeze and most beautiful blue water around you! Your chair beachside is under your personal palapa on an enormous expanse of beach - no loud noise or crowding - you can sleep, read, or put your flag in the sand and have a delicious frozen drink brought to you. For those looking to relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of the island - this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Request the 2nd floor room numbered in the 30's - great view~~

been to may 5star all inclusive resorts -- this one is one of the more expensive one -- restaurant staff were very friendly, front desk average, facility and amenities were average, did have nice rooms -- the internet was down 80% of the time. The food quality was above average but he menu did not change at all. One of the more annoying thing about this resort was that despite have the band for the all inclusive portion you had to sign for everything --including water bottles. Very inefficient and annoying. Another thing was a "surcharge" that was added on for certain food items and drinks. Usually a few bucks per item -- which frankly after spending a lot of money to go there is not going to break the bank -- defeats the whole idea of "all inclusive" and lowers their own 5star standard. overall I rated a 3/5 star as I was expecting 5 star service and amenities with no silly charges that typically is not experienced at a 5 star resort.

Room Tip: all rooms are ocean view -- rooms away form the front office have a better view

Thank you for your review of your recent all-inclusive stay.
We are considered a 4start Resort with all-inclusive guests as well as non-all inclusive guests.
This is also the reason why we also ask all-inclusive guests to sign all receipts to avoid confusion between both guest types.
We are glad you found our food quality above average and liked our rooms.
Our all-inclusive program consist of a fully a la carte menu for all 3 restaurants and only a few premium items as for example Lobster, T-bone Steak and Lamb Chops have a small surcharge.
Your feedback is much appreciated.

Returned from Aruba 18/06/14. we spent two weeks at the manchebo Hotel travelling with Thomson. We had a deluxe garden room which was sufficient for our needs tv fridge hairdryer had to request kettle as i disliked the coffee and the only tea available in the room was green tea. I thought the landscaped garden outside our patio doors was very pleasant with carved benches Buddha statues and a lovely waterfall I loved sitting there with a coffee after the beach watching the Lizards was very entertaining these rooms were cheaper than the sea view but I thought they were better it was peaceful and quite private.
We were on an all inclusive basis the breakfast was plentiful with a good selection. The lunchtime menu was good but got a bit repetitive after two weeks as did the restaurant menu and the steak restaurant was much the same menu as the main restaurant and after two weeks got a bit boring especially if there are maybe five or six items that were to your taste thought it would of changed after the first week but it did not I think the majority of the tourist were not on all inclusive. We ate out over the two weeks four times as the choices of food got a bit boring the dessert menu was very limited also, but that said what was was on offer was delicious . The waiting staff receptionists were delightful could not do enough for you all very friendly and pleasant.

The hotel was a bit dated but clean the addition of the new bar that opened while we were there was nice but few people used it I thought a coffee shop with choice of cakes and ice cream would of been nice ice cream ice lollies did not seem to be on offer they had to be bought from the shop. I saw a lot of people buying cakes snacks and sandwiches from the supermarket.
My only criticism of the manchebo is despite the expensive rates ( one of the most expensive on the Island) yet the seats in the beach bar and the sun loungers round the pool and the beach were very uncomfortable ( I was green with envy at the sun loungers from the next hotel they looked very comfy) when you consider one spends the most part of their holiday on the beach or round the pool surely a bit of comfort is not too much to ask.

Room Tip: Garden rooms are quiet and pleasant

Thank you for your comments.
Good to read that you liked our Garden view room and that you found it peaceful and quiet place.
We will take your feedback about the change of menu's for our inclusive guests into consideration and will discuss this with our F&B Management Team. We do have a different 'fish of the day' in both of our Restaurants and a 'soup of the day' at the Pega Pega bar.
As you said the new bar was just recently opened and we are still looking for ways to increase the amount of bar guests. We are looking into a small snack/tapas menu for the bar as well
There is always room for improvements.
The ice cream sound like a good idea too. We appreciate all our guest suggestions.
Once again, thank you for the feedback.

After a very long and cold winter, my husband decided it was time for an island vacation. After much research we decided on the island of Aruba and the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa, we definitely made the right choice!
It is hard to express in words our experience, as it was exceptional. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival with drinks and all of our crazy "first timer" questions were answered with patience and humor, making us feel right at home. This hospitality and concern for our every want and desire continued from check in to check out.

We did the AI plan and it was perfect for us, never a thought about where we would eat and our meals were always excellent. It was nice when the servers remembered us, what we liked and would make suggestions or bring us things they thought we would like to try.
The staff also conspired with my husband and planned a special 40th Anniversary surprise dinner for me. It will be a special memory and one we will talk about for many years.
Although the beach is beautiful, quiet, never a problem with chairs and there are always drinks and food available,the thing that will always remain with us is the warm, friendly staff and their making us feel at home.
We will be joining with the many other guests who continue to return to Aruba and the Manchebo!

Room Tip: We chose a garden room (57) and really enjoyed our quiet little garden sanctuary. The room was very...
