How to Get There
Well what can I say about Aruba and the Divi all inclusive? Nothing bad! Both my partner and I fell in love with the island and it’s people. We felt safe whenever we left the hotel complex and enjoyed venturing into the capital Oranjestad.
As for the accommodation it was clean and well looked after, the air conditioning was much needed as the heat at night was rather warm indeed.
The WIFI wasn’t the greatest but at least there was some.
The hotel staff were amazing, food and drinks available all day long.
The beach and sea are amongst the best in the world.
A special mention for Curtis and Claire at the sandpiper bar. The best drinks and food and always a warm welcome as well as TV’s for the World Cup which left us with many a great memory, oh and the local wildlife kept us entertained, many lizards and beautiful birds. If you want a lunch time burger, hot dog or spaghetti carbonara then go see Claire. If you want to sample any of the cocktails on offer Curtis makes them best.
The restaurants on site are all good and you need to book two days in advance but honestly we couldn’t falter the buffet for friendly service and plentiful food on offer as well as drinks galore. As for breakfast the French toast is a must for you all you foodies out there.
All in all a holiday of a lifetime and we’ll be back.
We stayed at the Divi All Inclusive for a week in July of 2018. Our room (#114) was supposed to be a garden view, however it ended up being very close to ocean and we had ocean view out of our back sliding patio door. It ended up working out very well.
I will break my review down into positives and negatives based upon our experience, but overall I would give this resort a 4 Star rating.
Clean, well maintained, easy access to beach, nice beach and pretty calm water, friendly, personable and attentive staff, convenient location to attractions, strong alcoholic drinks, good wi-fi, strong water pressure and hot water. Nice room with large bathroom including walk in shower, king size bed, sofa, locking safe, mini refrigerator, etc.
Another bonus I liked was having access to the Divi sister resorts which were within close proximity and they do offer a convenient shuttle service.
Overall I was not impressed with the food. There are several specialty restaurants, but it seemed to be a challenge as you have to make reservations in advance and can only do so 2 days in advance. The key is to be at the concierge desk early in morning. We often relied on the buffet and it was just an average typical buffet. Not much seemed to change each day other than the soup flavor or starch. We did eat at one of the restaurants, Red Parrot, and it was pretty much a sit down plated version of the buffet.
Entertainment was another issue here. Most nights they did have either a DJ or live band from around 9 to 11 pm. After that, not much else was going on. It was better than nothing at all, but I do think there is room for improvement. There were some daytime group/kids activities offered as well. When I compare all inclusive to cruise ship vacation, the cruise ship offered much more entertainment/activity options in this regard.
Another issue was that the walls within your room are rather thin and lack decent sound proofing. We could often clearly hear people in hallway or attached rooms.
Prior to going to the Divi, I did read about security issues. I can offer this, there were several occasions where I along with others were solicited to buy drugs from a male walking in beach area at night. From what I was told this is a common issue anywhere in Aruba. The Divi resort did have an outside security company on sight and I seen them conducting patrols and checking sliding patio doors. We stayed ground level, so this was a concern. Be sure to lock sliding door, place security bar in place, use lock box, etc.
Beach palapas are limited, so it is key to note that you must get out there early, set up your chairs and attach your towels to reserve your spot if you plan on having a palapa for the day.
In closing, if you’re debating between the high rise vs low rise zone, I would recommend the low rise area. I did visit the high rise area and it seemed very congested and crowded at those resorts. This did not seem to be an issue in low rise area. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and realize that no place or vacation will be absolutely perfect. I only highlight these negatives as a guide for your information.
We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday in this hotel. Overall the stay was fantastic but there are a few things that could be changed to make things even better. I’ll start with the room, we booked a sea view room and we were not disappointed It was literally a minute walk outside the patio door and we were on the fantastic beach The room was okay, nothing spectacular and was a bit dated and basic but the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in . My one complaint is that the WiFi coverage in the room was pretty much useless and If you want WiFi go to the reception area that is where the best signal was. The beach was spectacular and there were always sun beds available but you might struggle to get one under a parasol if you were a late riser . The beach was combed first thing every morning to level it it out and pick up any rubbish left behind . Sunsets over the beach sat at the bar were amazing.
Restaurants: The Buffet was excellent the food was very good and you had a rotation of different things each day , breakfast was my favourite meal but what let this down was there was no fresh fruit juices it was all out of a machine
Red Parrot - this meal was excellent. You have a view over looking the beach and the meal was delicious.
Pure Lime is the Mexican restaurant and it was ok especially if you like tacos
Paparazzi the Italian restaurant at the Tamarijn was very good as well but our favourite was Ginger the Asian restaurant the food here was great and the staff here were some of the best in the hotel a special mention here to Juliette she is a credit to the hotel there was a mess up with our booking for six which she sorted out with no fuss and she consistently kept checking the table to make sure everything was ok and was always having a laugh and joke with us There were a few bars that served food during the day and the pizzas and panini were very good the cocktails at the main bar at reception were the best especially the Aruba ariba .
Activities There are things to do throughout the day and evening if you choose to but we didn’t bother.
Concierges were really helpful when booking the speciality restaurants and we never had any problem booking a restaurant .
Now for the few negatives the ice machine at the end of our block didn’t work from the day we got there until the day we left , there is nowhere to get a decent coffee only the machine in reception which hardly ever had milk or wasn’t working and why put a fridge in the room with nothing in surely they could put a few drinks in them. Overall we had one of the best holidays ever and met some great friends and made some lovely memories will we return in the future definitely
Highly recommend, great facilities and staff. The beach is step from the rooms and is well maintained. the wait staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurants are great, but you must make reservations for the specialty ones two days in advance. The buffet is great and we ate there most of the time and no complaints.
My family and I stayed here for 7 nights and 8 days. We did not have hot water for 6 of the days. All inclusive. was good, however, this does not include room service. If you want room service, its after 5pm, and it has a service charge of approximately $7.90, plus the food you order and a 18% gratuity charge. We went on a bus tour of the island, which was interesting, stops along the way charged $9.00, for a hot dog, $4.00 for a snicker bar. They don't encourage you to exchange american $, they love separate you from your money. Happy Island, I not certain about. Oh, if you like to sip your drink, take some straws, they don't use them at Divi. Also the timeshare sales interesting, but they will try to force you to sign. Would I go back, no.
