“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I was somewhat reserved about our trip to Aruba this year once I found out the Westin had closed/was sold as I had stayed there the last 6 years....and this was a new experience to a place I had never stayed at before. Needless to stay ...from the word "go" I was highly impressed by Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa. The facilities were great/clean/well maintained...the beach fantastic...the people were very friendly and accommodating..and the food was spectacular!!!! I was on the All Inclusive Plan and I never suffered from a lack of choices!!! I would like to recognize some of the associates who were fantastic in both their professionalism as well as friendliness...Carmen (the bartender extraordinaire!!)...Nayo, William, Joraine, Norleans (and all the staff at Ike's/French Steak House). I very much appreciated their hospitality and diligence to making sure everything was right!!! The food and beverage manager Gerald was excellent....always looking around to make sure everything was going well. Thank you Manchebo...I WILL be back next year. Carmen please keep the Balshi "Chills" cold for me!!! Bon Bini!!!

The Manchebo Beach Resort is situated on Eagle Beach...which is fabulous white sand.

We visited the Manchebo for an evening meal, and were so impressed that we returned.The menu was excellent, the service a little slow, but hey we were on holiday.

On the second visit the Manchebo had an amazing sax player, playing whilst we ate our dinner, what a lovely surprise, and it just added an additional touch to the overall dining experience.

A great place to eat, when in ARUBA.

Room Tip: All appear to be facing the sea.

My brother and I have stayed at the Westin for 6 years so were upset at its closing yet we wanted to continue our stays in Aruba - Researched and decided on Manchebo and were not disappointed. From our arrival and Sandra along with Mr. Jones welcoming us by name to Gerald, Food and Beverage Mgr. welcoming us at the bar and Rita saying good morning to us each day we felt part of the family. Vivian arranged for great rooms ( we want those again next year) Food was great, spectacular beach. I am sure that I will forget some of the associates by name but just a few to recognize; Carmen, Joraine, William, Noyo, Jasmin, Norleans. I have been in the hospitality business for 20+ years and appreciate good customer service and this resort offered it and more - See you next year

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach - we liked bottom floor as you can walk straight out on to the beach

Can't wait to go back next year!! This is the best place to stay on the island. It's quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. The people that work there are great. They tell you the best places to go for dinner and make the reservations for you. The maid service is impeccable!!!!
They even store our blender for us every year!!! Until next year. We miss you already!

Love this hotel. My husband and I are mid-40s and just like peace and quiet when we go on vacation, so we don't want to be near any hotels where there's partying going on. We look for tranquility for vacations. This hotel fit the bill. We went in late July, so it wasn't crowded. We had a section of the incredible beach all to ourselves!! I couldn't get over how mellow it all was. Not one person schlepped their wares up to us to sell, not a lot of people walking along the shore. It was pretty much heaven on earth.

Rooms were great. Beds comfy. Beach food servers worked hard and were friendly. Front desk wasn't super warm/fuzzy the few times we interacted with them, but they weren't rude either.

I would stay at Manchebo again in a heartbeat!

Oh, I forgot, when we arrived at the hotel from the airport, our room wasn't ready, so we went to sit out at the beach for a bit. Suddenly, there was a ruckus and people went running by us with cameras...he sea turtle nests suddenly started boiling, which means there was a mass hatching and the baby sea turtles were making their way into the ocean. One of the coolest things I've ever witnessed!!

Thank you for your lovely review.
It's great to hear you had a peaceful and quiet vacation at Manchebo.
We are very blessed with our wide and beautiful beach with a lot of privacy.
Aruba almost doesn't have independent beach vendors trying to sell things.
Wow!! You were very lucky that you saw the Turtles hatching, you came at the perfect time. This will be a once in a lifetime experience. I'm happy that you had the chance to see this.
You are always welcome at Manchebo and we hope to see you back soon!

My mother chose Manchebo for our mother/daughter vacation this year. We're not high rise/casino people, so Manchebo was perfect for us. If you want to be steps from one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world, than this is the spot for you too!

The beach: Simply breathtaking. A quick walk in either direction, and it's hard not to notice how crowded some of the other resorts are. At times we felt we had the entire beach to ourselves. As others have mentioned, the beach service for lunch and drinks is very good.

The food: We did not choose all-inclusive, as we knew we'd planned to dine around the island as well. The meals we had at the hotel were great. We especially enjoyed the al fresco atmosphere of Ike's at sunset. There's a market across the road where you can grab drinks and snacks that we found very convenient.

The yoga: One of the reasons my mother had chosen Manchebo was that she knew I'd appreciate the yoga. What she didn't realize is that she'd love it too! After her first class with Caroline, she was hooked. We also loved morning yoga with Sanne and Pilates with Barbara. This was easily one of the best parts of our stay at Manchebo.

It's easy to see why people return to Manchebo year after year. We'll be back for sure!
