Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa

Aruba, Caribbean

The hotel

Staking its claim to a prime patch of Eagle Beach — Aruba’s widest and arguably its most stunning arc of sand — Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa certainly makes the most of its seaside setting. You rarely have to tear yourself from the shoreline, whether you’re dining, drinking, or enjoying downtime — although all the fun of Oranjestad is just 10 minutes away if you do and it is well worth a visit. Its spa features beachside cabanas for al fresco treatments. Its Pega-Pega beach grill dishes up casual lunches and an attentive beach cocktail service. Its daily yoga and Pilates classes are held in the seafront pavilion. And even its fitness room overlooks the beach. If that’s not close enough, you’ve got 55 beach cabanas and plenty of complimentary loungers on the sands themselves. Featuring four restaurants including The Chophouse, Omakase Sushi Bar, Ike’s Bistro and casual beachside dining at Pega-Pega Café and Beach Bar, there is something to satisfy every tastebud. An optional premium all-inclusive program is available, so you'll be able to sample all the delicious delights that Manchebo has to offer, not forgetting the premium open bar of course!

If you want to stay at a zen relaxed hotel then look no further. The beach is sublime and the rooms are comfortable and will relax the stressed out overworked tired soul. Talking about myself. I enjoy the spa here and the food is excellent with farm to table from their gardens.

Went during September 2020. Got to the island first day of new curfew. Had to be in by 10pm and at your resort by 11pm (casino and hotel bar). This group of wonderful servers, Jonnaathan, Stephanie, Sandro & Miquel were amazing! They made us feel welcomed and safe. They followed all protocalls for saftey during this time of the pandemic and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and safe. Aruba is still a beautiful island to visit and vacation at. I recommend going to Ike's Bistro as it's one of the best restaurants on the island and has the best staff! Love, love love this island and all it's people! Read less

The resort is located on an absolutely beautiful beach. The rooms and amenities are very nice. We went during Covid time and felt very safe. Everything was clean and precautions were taken to keep visitors and employees safe. All of the employees we interacted with were top notch!

I do not have to wait to write this review as i am still here and have been for 4 days. First they take COVID very serious. Hand sanitizers are all over the property and masks are worn at all times. Secondly the staff here is AMAZING! simply put. From Tamara whom i was emailing constantly to make sure i had the perfect room, and she helped me plan a private dinner on the beach for my wife’s birthday. The entire wait staff is top notch! I’d like to specifically mention Elton who clearly knows how to make people feel special. He knows exactly how to cater to people. He was not over bearing so we could enjoy our food and each other, but also knew when we needed something and was right there. Third the beach staff is on point. Joseul (sorry for the wrong name spelling) had your chair and towels reading for you each morning and knows exactly what palapa you want. Alajandra is the girl you want as your waitress on the beach. Raise your flag and she is there with a smile and taking your order. We stayed in room 21 which you walk right out onto the beach. It’s closer to the Bacuti side. Unreal views and spectacular sunsets. I’d feel amiss if i didn’t mention the housekeeping and the staff at the front desk. I wish i could remember names but the girl at the front desk (works during the day) when you check in is extremely helpful with any questions or concerns and always done with a smile. In closing this is was our first time to Aruba, and Manchebo, and it will not be our last as we are going to book another trip and stay here before we leave. Read less
