We had the pleasure of staying 6 nights at the Manchebo for our 25th anniversary from 6/25-7/1. I don't understand any of the negative reviews. It was the most wonderful 6 days!! My husband and I could not have asked for anything more. The staff could not have been more attentive and professional. Upon arriving at noon our room was ready and we were given a welcome drink. After coming back from the beach on our first day we found complimentary champagne for our anniversary chilling in a bucket! The rooms were comfortable, updated and clean. They are not luxurious with big soaking tubs. We didn't go there to hang out in a room so this was more than adequate for us. There are three restaurants; Ikes, the French Steakhouse and the beach bar. Ikes and the French Steakhouse serve dinner. We had dinner at Ikes twice and at the steakhouse once. All three dinners were very good. The food at the beach bar for lunch was adequate. The breakfast buffet was good. If you want to eat at other locations it is just an easy cab ride. The beach is by far the best on the island and the most beautiful I have ever seen. You never had to worry about finding an umbrella to sit under and it was not at all crowded.This is a resort at the low rise, quiet end of the island which is what we were looking for. If you are looking for a night life with a lot of bars and shopping then DON'T stay here. If you are vacationing with kids this may not be the place for you to stay. There is not much to do other than the beach and a small pool. The pool was nice but it is not large. The spa was very nice. I had a pedicure and my husband had a hot stone message. A very special thanks to John Marie who works at Ikes. Unfortunately, I had laryngitis the first night we arrived. We were having dinner at Ikes and John Marie was kind enough to make me this drink to help. The next morning I was much better! Also, special thanks to the gift shop sales lady (sorry didn't get her name). Before leaving today I saw a nice sun dress but I wanted to try it on before paying for it. The sales lady was kind enough to let me take it back to my room to try it on. She didn't even ask my room number or to leave a deposit (I did end up buying it!). The only two minor things were spotty wifi and no really gym. However, they had yoga and pilates in the pavilion every day which was wonderful! We will definitely return!! Thank you Manchebo for making this a very special anniversary!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2 which was just steps away from the beach area and a beautiful view of the ocean! Definitely splurge on the ocean view. It is worth it!

It's good to hear that your dinners were good at our Restaurants.
We will pass your compliment to John Marie and show her our appreciation for her great customer service.

Nice, functional rooms, friendly staff, very good breakfast and lunch and dinner restaurants, more quiet than the high rise region, short drive to Oranjestad. Yoga and pilates sessions each morning, wonderful Bali style spa. Wifi is free and good. This is THE place! We loved it!!

Room Tip: Ocean view

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~~
