It on Palm Beach between the Hilton and the Hyatt.

Former names of which there are many. I remember it was the Americana, the Allegro, the Occidental and maybe more.

It opened as the Americana in May 1975. It then became the Allegro Aruba Hotel (I believe in 1999, but I have no confirmation of that). Next, in 2008, it became the Occidental Aruba Grand and in late November 2016, became the Barcelo. The casino in the hotel has gone by seven different names. Anyone able to name more than five of them?

This brings back memories. We were staying at the then Americana in May/1998 and it changed ownership to Allegro the week we were there.

My first stay in Aruba was at the Americana. We bought our first timeshare in Aruba the following year.
