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!

Everything about Manchebo exceeded expectations. From the moment we arrived at the beautiful lobby I knew I was somewhere special. The staff is so friendly, warm and do a fantastic job keeping everything clean and safe for guests. The location on Eagle Beach is unparalleled and it was just wonderful to find a hotel that is so relaxing where we could just unwind. The restaurants on the property are delicious! Everything we ate from the breakfasts at Ike’s to lunches at Pega Pega and dinner at Omakase were out of this world ! My only regret is we didn’t stay here longer. Can’t wait to book our next vacation !! Read less

We booked this last minute trip since our other travel plans were cancelled last minute since we didn’t get our test results back in time. Not too sad about that...Aruba was meant to be! We had friends who did a baby moon here a couple years ago so we are so happy we decided to come here on their recommendation. This place is magical to say the least. Beautiful beach, luxurious pool, amazing food and staff. We haven’t had a bad meal here! Breakfast is awesome every morning with a view of the pool. The Caribbean bbq wrap for lunch is a MUST! I’ve never had such a better time than relaxing all week by the beach and pool. My fiancé and I were so enamored by this place - we booked our destination wedding here for Oct 2022. We were able to meet with the wedding planner here - Nyoka who is awesome! I can tell she is going to make this so easy. :) We are so excited to bring all our close family and friends back! Thank you Manchebo!! Read less

All meals are terrific, chefs pleasure in watching you eat what they prepare. If you are a Yogi... there is class every morning... each instructor thoughtful and very experienced! Now the staff, Ana at Ike’s check in is just a love! Made our beach dinner so beautiful. William our server was beyond polite and friendly. Ada for breakfast kept us smiling every morning!!! Jason at dinner had us laughing while giving us top notch service. Not to be forgotten are Joshua with Palapa set up and Alejandra with beach service..., spectacular. If you are looking for a high rise hotel this is not it.... this is a genuine island feel with 5+ star service!!! On last comment... front desk all smiles all day!! Read less
