Super friendly & helpful staff, beautiful beach & fantastic food!! Wide variety of food from which to chose; 3 dinner menus! Highly recommend.

Best overall beach on Aruba. Fabulous quiet property on huge beach. Thier restaurants need to up their game, but definitely would stay there again.

This was by far a wonderful place to stay. The staff was so friendly, it’s like we have family to come back to and visit. And we will definitely go back to Manchebo Resort. The beach and property was beautiful, very well kept. The rooms very nice, bed was comfortable. The food was good, and I can’t say enough about the staff, Maggie,Fabian,Joshuel,and Sandra they were awesome.

My husband and I wanted a short getaway and I decided to go to Aruba because we hadn't been before.I found Manchebo Bay Resort on line and liked that it was a low key, boutique hotel that offered yoga and had an all-inclusive component. We were very pleased with our experience. A few times I had to email the hotel with questions and I always got a fast, accommodating and courteous reply. The staff is very helpful and friendly- thx Lucinda! The food was DELICIOUS and the all-inclusive was a good way to go if you plan on staying on site. There are lots of good restaurant choices about a 10 minute taxi ride away if you plan on eating off property. The room was an ample size (we had king room with ocean view). The bathroom had nice amenities. The hotel was immaculate. I loved the spa treatments I received and highly recommend Xiarra (spelling?). I enjoyed the yoga and Pilates that was offered each morning and evening. The sunset yoga stretch was a great way to end the day. Now on to the beach-- wow!! The wide beach with silky white sand was amazing. The water was warm, but not too warm as to not be refreshing.The ocean bottom was soft and the water clear and clean (no seaweed). There were always plenty of chairs at the beach and pool. No waking up early to secure your spot! The infinity pool was so clean and the perfect temperature. My husband and I loved our experience at Manchebo and will definitely return for another couples trip- not best for kids.

The hotel offers impeccable customer service. The employees cater to all of your needs and do so without hesitation and with care.

What can I say about this resort.. it’s incredible!!! The beach breathtaking! I have never seen a beach this beautiful oh and did I mention that it’s steps away from your room...! Food was excellent quality. The resort is peaceful always plenty of room on the beach always had an amazing view no matter what time you get to the beach. This place is paradise is your looking for relaxation clean gorgeous resort with a great beach amazing food and the most friendliest staff, please stay here! I love manchebo beach resort and spa and will be back!

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.
