The resort is small on the best beach in Aruba. The resort is fantastic. The friendly staff makes you feel at home. All of the restaurants have a great menu. We have been to Manchebo many times and hope to return soon.

24 hour front desk everyone is ready to assist, and pleasant. Beach staff willing and courteous. Daily maid service attentive and thorough. Palapalas are nicely spaced and available, towels always there from beach staff. Pega Pega for lunch, we ate there almost everyday and always ate something creative and tasty; and steps from your Palapala. Breakfast by the pool at Pega Pega. Buffet, smoothies and a la carte were all well prepared and again steps from your Palapala. The Chophouse for dinner several nights was very good. Omakase for sushi was a hit and a memorable experience. Oh, the water is clear, no wave action and a silky smooth bottom. The beach was never crowded. Pretty much perfect.

On our first dinner at the Chop House, I had to send my salad back since there was a 6-inch hair in my salad and my husband had to send his steak back since it wasn't cooked as ordered. Our experience in the Chop House went downhill from there. A couple of nights later, we checked in with our Room #21 and were told we did not have a reservation. We then gave them our name, and they found the reservation under Room #22. The manager who was seating us did not seem to believe us when we gave him our Room # and debated whether we had changed rooms since the start of our stay. Finally we were seated between 2 other tables for 2 and a waiter came over. He asked if we had enjoyed our day on the beach and we thought he was just making polite conversation. He then proceeded to accuse us of skipping out on a bar bill. We told him we had not ordered drinks on the beach. He had the bar tab with him and it was marked with Room #22. We told him that we were in Room #21 and that was not our tab. Meanwhile, the patrons at each of the tables next to us are looking over since they overheard the conversation. We left the Chop House and went to eat at Ike’s where we ended up having dinner for the last couple of nights we were there but they have a more limited menu. This was totally mishandled and you would think rather than accosting guests in the restaurant they could've just added that bar tab to Room #22's statement for them to pay on checkout day. Skip all inclusive/eat elsewhere.
