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!

Manchebo is a picture taken directly off of a post card- the view, the buildings, the white sand beach, the turquoise blue warm water, the gentile waves, and palapas make you feel worlds away from any problem you could think of... even during covid times! next.... the food: making any chef look like they are serving from a box, the kitchen staff prepare the most fantastic and mouth watering dishes ive had anywhere in the world- to qulify my palette: I live just outside of NYC, i have been all over italy, france, sweden, china and of course the USA and have ate like a king in all places - little unsung Manchebo steals the show! from Steak and Sushi, to eggs and toast -top tier! and the UNRIVALED STAFF here... i will name names -as they are an organized unit for sure- but personally go above and beyond as a habit breakfast saff: Ada, Cynthia, Diana, and Fanny- you all greet me each morning with a smile, a coffee, a hang over killing smoothie, and more food in one sitting then anyone man ever needs! and you make me feel welcomed every time- but the real gift is... they all knew when to leave me alone to stare out into the ocean and enjoy my hot, strong, coffee... brilliant! at lunch and all day is the incredible Alajendra- this incredible woman walks up and down the beach (in a mask) in 90 degree weather, with food, drinks, and anything else you could want ALL DAY! and the most amazing thing- she seems thrilled to do it! i dont know if its a show, or they are paying her millions... but she is a pleasant, sweet, kind angel of manchebo and needs to be recognized! and last but never least is Tamera.... there isnt enough i can say about her... she is the customer relations chair at the resort and nevermind making me feel good- she makes my wife feel like the most important person on the planet- she adds little sweet suprises to our room, makes sure we have flawless dinner reservations anywhere on the island or at the resort. and it all seems to come effortlesly to her... tamera- we love you and you make our visit incredible every time -thank you to sum up... if you are going to Aruba, or on vacationin general, and you dont stay at Manchebo- you have wasted your time and money- there is no where else to be see you all next year!

It was difficult to get there this year but we were determined to make it happen and Manchebo was ready to make sure we were safe. The entire Island was set up nicely with sanitizer and temp checks and everyone wore masks. Our stay at Manchebo was excellent as expected and as usual.

I can’t say enough about Manchebo Beach Resort. My husband and I spent 9 days there on our anniversary and we enjoyed every single moment. They were extremely clean and COVID compliant are all times so we felt very comfortable during our entire stay. The rooms, the beach (so incredible) the food, and the amenities are all top notch, but the really special thing at Manchebo is the staff. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE who works there is so attentive and kind. The staff truly made our trip so incredibly special. From Carmen and her amazingly creative and delicious cocktails, to Melvin at the front desk from being so helpful, to the grounds crew and everyone keeping the resort so clean and running so smoothly.....and the service at their restaurants....some of the best we’ve ever had. More details in a review of Ike’s Bistro! My husband and I will absolutely come back to Manchebo and we are already telling all of our friends about it!! Read less
