Caribbean luxury resort on the widest stretch of Eagle Beach
Enjoy a bigger, better beach on your tropical vacation at Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa. Do the math: just 71 rooms and 50 shady cabanas on the largest, widest stretch of gorgeous Eagle Beach add up to a large amount of sandy relaxation space per person. Rejuvenate with complimentary yoga classes, or detoxify at the Spa del Sol with a steam or body treatment.
Highlights
  • Intimate two-story beachfront resort on one of the largest and widest sections of Eagle Beach
  • Outdoor spa facility and rejuvenation treatments
  • Complimentary yoga classes
Rooms
There are just 71 rooms in the two-story Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa, each with a private patio or balcony, decorated in colonial blue and cream hues, and dark wood furniture. Spread out on the work desk, or curl up and read in a pair of comfortable chairs. Choose from a stunning view of the aqua ocean or of the tropical gardens. Each guest room comes with a 32-inch flat screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi, an iHome iPod docking station, electronic safe, refrigerator and coffee maker.
Dining

Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa allows guests to indulge in chef-prepared a la carte meals. Breakfast is served poolside at the open-air Giorgio's restaurant -- go light with fresh fruit or ask for something custom-made. Lunch can range from Asian fusion to European elegance at Pega-Pega Cafe & Beach Bar. The French Steakhouse serves South American cuts of beef and freshly caught local seafood.

Relaxation is easily found at the Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa, either on that sprawling stretch of beach, or with a treatment or steam at Spa del Sol. Complimentary yoga lessons are held on the beach, and low-impact aerobic classes are on offer, too. Massages and body treatments are also available.

Wonderful 2nd Trip to Aruba

This was our second trip to Aruba, but our first stay at Manchebo. The staff was wonderful, attentive, and pleasant. The resort is small, which is what we were looking for rather than mega resort, and we could walk right out are deck to the beach, bar, poor, whatever. 5 star resort without the 5 star price. Will definitely make another trip and recommend for anyone looking for quite relaxing time with excellent service. Only negative was the Wifi service. Not very strong once you got away from the lobby and no where to plug in ethernet cable in the room.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Avoid the De Palm shuttle to and from the Airport it can take a long time depending on stop and costs $22 each way. Taxi's on Aruba are fantastic, clean, professional, and polite and costs are extremely reasonable.

Great for couples! VERY relaxing!!

This hotel is beautiful! Great beach space! The only downfall was the food (at Bistro) was terrible at a HIGH price!! Lobster tail was tough and tasteless and filet mignon was a cheap cut of something..maybe sirloin?? (I would skip the all inclusive at this resort.) Staff very attentive and kind. Bar was FANTASTIC!! Alot of fun with simple music each night.

Good time, nice staff

My experience at Manchebo was good. Nice location if you dont like crowds. Couple of minor details that I hope the resort can correct. • There were stains on the long orange pillows. • Food is not accurately described on the menu. I ordered hot wings and it wasnt hot at all, just extremely salty.

Lovely place

Excellent food, a peaceful and quiet small hotel with the best beach in Aruba. But you need to know a few things before you book your trip. House keeping was very inconsistent, and you could never rely on the time.The breakfast was a little overpriced for what was offered. Additionally, something was wrong with the mattress (perhaps poor support) which resulted in us having a poor sleep each night. Also, we were there for a week and we only received one set of toiletries. Overall, if these things are not so important to you - all else was great and it is a very lovely place to stay!

Great!!!!

I just returned from a wee stay at manchebo beach! It was amazing! Relaxing! Staff were great, always helpful and smiling. Tamara was our favorite staff . Her personality and genuine nature was fun to be around. Our only negative was with the car rental At the hotel. They were one hour late giving us the car. When we returned it we filled the gas tank up until it was full. The car service argued with us that the gas tank was not full and wanted to charge us 15.00 for gas, after talking to someone other employee on what to do. We felt it was a scam. Be careful!!!

The Right Place for Rest and Relaxation!

This is the right place for a vacation that is filled with laying on a beach, drinking cocktails, in the sun or in the shade, swimming in beautiful turquoise waters. The gentle quiet breeze takes you far away from the stress, worry and responsibilities of everyday life. It is a resort that pays attention to the smaill details and that makes a guest feel special. (giving guests snack bags on the day of your departure and welcoming you with a cool drink) When we first arrived, they gave us a beautiful room with an ocean view, but two double beds, we quickly said this was not going to work for us because we are a married couple and we need a king size bed. They said they didn't have any available for that night, but in the morning they would fix that error and they did so, with grace. They moved all our things during the following day, into an even more beautiful room. So, the rest of our stay, at the resort was really great.!!! In moving forward, I would check to make sure that I specify king size bed or queen bed before I make a reservation online. The beach was beautiful, wide, clean and the water was spectacular. The only complaint I have is that this hotel has a spa on its grounds. the cabana where the massage is done overlooks the ocean a perfect setting for an amazing, relaxing massage. It did not work out that way. I had a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist was fantastic, however, the atmosphere of the spa was not a calm, quiet relaxing place at all. In my experience, a spa is suppose to be quiet, peaceful, meditative and zen place. This place was far from that with so much chatting, commotion and cell phone conference conversations that it seemed more like the trading floor of the Stock Exchange, then a spa. I don't blame the massage therapists, I hold the management or owner of the spa responsible for this. Management is not enforcing policies that would create the environment of a true spa. The fact that the spa was right on a beautiful beach is completely ignored and overshadowed by people who do not respect a peaceful and calm place, is not worth your presence or your money for a massage at this spa. A true spa incorporates all of the zen ingredients in order to create a total mind, body and soul experience. Any spa that does not offer or create the sanctuary of respecting the total mind, body and soul experience, is simply not worth it and does not have your well being at its core.

Fabulous Mother-Daughter Getaway

The beach, the restaurants (yummy food), the pool and especially the staff were all outstanding! The front desk employees were extremely helpful, professional and so-so friendly! The connected SPA was fabulous! We enjoyed relaxing massages in open air cabanas on the beach! WOW! From maid service to manager, Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa provided a perfect vacation for my daughter and me!

relaxing!!

Let me say... we visited the hi rise area and it really showed me how good my decision was to pick Manchebo. Manchebo was so relaxing and laid back. There was lots of room on the beach and getting a palapa on the beach every day was very easy. We chose not to do the all-inclusive since my wife was pregnant and wouldn't be able to drink alcohol. Even if she had been able to, we probably would have chosen not to do the AI because there are a lot of other options to eat on the island. We also did not rent a car since it seemed a little intimidating to try to drive around on the island. Short, cheap taxi rides were plentiful and enough for us. My only complaint would be that the breakfast was not that great and we had a minor issue with tiny ants in our room on 3 out of the 4 nights. Other than that, our stay was great and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to go to Aruba and relax.

December 2013 Getaway!

This 8-day stay was superb! The room was comfortable and clean; rainforest shower fantastic! Sometimes it's tough to get an even and adequate shower temperature and pressure at other places but not at Manchebo. Meals at poolside were delectable and the service staff attentive! Ike's bistro was the opposite experience; great food and service. What kept this review from being a 5-star rating was the on-premises steakhouse. Our steaks were somewhat tough (ordered American beef). Staff could be more attentive inquiring about the meal and "around" more (only two other couples there at the time) especially considering the prices. Now, kudos to Jonesy who welcomes you to Manchebo, Mr. Michael with baggage, Sue at the front desk, Fanny at Pega-Pega and the head-honcho running that bar, Jean at Ike's bistro, Ada and Ana Marie at breakfast.....bravo! It must be mentioned that the beach is unbeatable, the sand smooth as glass, even in the water; plenty of places to sit no matter the time we went. We will be back!
