Recent guest reviews

serene, well kept,friendly, great food. a bit pricey but worth it.

Helpful pleasant staff were notable. Restaurants seems a nitjpricey for the level of food quality.

Nice restaurants, great service and location. Property very meticulously maintained.

my second time in two years seems to b gettin better n better great resort great management n wonderful staff they have all the right ingredients to nake ur stay great

Great location, perfect for couples! Beach chairs always available and pool is perfect. Happy Hour at 5pm doesnt hurt either! Gym is pretty good for a small resort like this as well.

The staff at Manchebo Beach was excellent. Very accommodating. The food was a bit salty and the lobster on lobster night was a bit hard. Pricey on the food but very reasonable on the drinks. Spa and massage excellent! I had Oni for my massage and she was awesome! I would recommend the hotel but would probably eat out more during a future stay

It was so relaxing. Very quiet and calm and perfect for a honeymoon.

4th time in Aruba, 2nd stay at Manchebo. Upon arrival they gave us a special t shirt for return guests. There was cheese crackers and fruit in our room, again a gift fior return guests. The staff is so accomodating. The beach is spectacular. Can't wait to return!

I was informed upon arrival that the room I booked was not available. This seems to be the normal routine at this resort. I must say, I was very unhappy and upset. When I book a vacation three months on advance, I expect the room I was promised, and paid for. I think that is a totally unprofessional, and ridiculous way to have your guests learn after a long plane ride. That, was the first problem. The staff at the hotel are all wonderful! No question about it. The beach and grounds are superb. Breakfast is fantastic. Lunch at the beach bar is unbelievably good. Ike's for dinner is pretty darn good too. The service at Ike's was impeccable. The sushi was great at Omakase, and the girl that makes the sushi is just a wonderful, wonderful person. Now the Chophouse. We thought it would be the premier restaurant at the resort. Well, it was NOT! The service on our first night was worse than terrible. The food was just ok. The second visit the service was much better, but my fish of the day, was so overcooked I was speechless. You go to an island and you expect great fish. This awesome of the worst fish dinners I ever experienced. The manager was professional and very nice, but I would still recommend no one to eat there until they fix obvious issues. A very beautiful, small, nice and quiet resort. The Chophouse needs lots and lots of work!

Beautiful quiet resort tucked away on the low rise with the biggest stretch of beach best service an all around perfect place to stay and unwind on the beach with a drink

All you need is right there. The beach is beautiful and more private than most. Smaller size resort but all the high end amenities.

My husband and I stayed in Aruba at the Manchebo for 10 days. this was our 11th year in a row and we would never go anywhere else. The beach is the most beautiful on the entire island. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and nice. Front desk personnel - Hami, Swinda and others are always ready to answer any question or need you have. Some extra touches we love: 1. Welcoming Mohitos after a 7 hours of flying. 2. A bottle of Champagne on ice in our room (a thank you for being loyal customers). 3. Coupons for free drinks, desserts, yoga, pilates. 4. The manager's cocktail hour on Tuesdays is also fun. 5.The same staff you get to know year after year. Manchebo has 4 restaurants and a spa on site. Few other hotels on Eagle Beach have this much selection. Omikase, a Japanese Sushi bar is truly exceptional. Mylene, the Sushi chef is awesome. Every bite was succulent. We went there for dinner twice. The recently renamed and remodeled Chop House was also superb. We also enjoyed dinner here twice. Harold and the other wait staff were very attentive and professional. The rooms are very clean and the floors are washed every day. Our maid Josefina was wonderful! Can't wait to go back

We had an excellent week with my husband. Excellent food and service

Hotel is the best. We usually stay at these big palatial hotels but this is a nice quiet boutique hotel with two levels. Perfect intimate size hotel where the staff remembers you and you become family. Perfect location on beach.

Second trip to Manchebo. Beach service was great but overall service did not seem as great this time. Food was ok but you can find much better elsewhere.

We stayed at this hotel two times and we definitely will stay again the next time we go to Aruba.

It was an incredible place and the hotel was really nice. We came for the Rachel Brathen yoga retreat, and were extremely happy with the accommodations. This is a low rise hotel only like 70 rooms which we thought was nicer than one of the hi-rise vegas style resort hotels. We rented a car right at the front desk, and that was very convenient. We got to know the whole staff almost, Michael, Josephina, Freya, and everyone was great. You will not be disappointed.

Loved everything about this resort... Multiple restaurant options on site which offer affordable options for all times of the day... Huge white sand beach with more than enough seating to make you feel comfortable and never like you are sitting on top/too close to other people... Resort is very clean and well maintained with a staff that is always friendly and eager to help with any need/question that you may have. The resort is located about a 2 minute walk from a shopping area which included a market, shopping, and eating options...
