Mixed feelings
kingharold

Back from a week at this resort. While there I celebrated a milestone birthday. The staff in the buffet restaurant were amazing people. A big thank you to Irene and the rest of the team who made my birthday feel special. It wasn't just the cake and singing, i got kisses from the girls and handshakes from the guys. Made my day.
So, staff, food and the beach are all amazing.

On the down side - the rooms are showing their age. If you are unlucky enough to get heavy rain (which we did) our balcony flooded and was unusable. Anywhere else I've been the balcony is a place of refuge on a rainy day.

PROS~~~~~
-BEACH- gorgeous, clean beach... water is crystal clear, white sand
-FOOD- great food, we tried every restaurant and liked everything
-SMALL RESORT - easy to get around
-TAMARIJN- “sister” resort down the road, you can walk or take the golf cart shuttle which comes every few min- this is where 3 of the included restaurants are
-LOCATION- Alhambra casino and some shops are walking distance, also have golf cart shuttle. 15-20 min from airport
-HOUSEKEEPING- they did a great job , clean rooms

CONS~~~~~
-ROOM- very basic and smelled kind of musty. Bed/mattress not comfortable AT ALL. Fridge not stocked with ANY drinks. Balconies are not private. No room service!!!!!
-ENTERTAINMENT- not much entertainment at all. I think 2 days of our week there was poolside bingo and pool volleyball. Other than that really nothing at all during the day, they don’t even play music by the pool. Nighttime entertainment was a lot of bands geared toward the older clientele. BORING.
-CUSTOMER SERVICE- VERY disappointing. Staff definitely DOES NOT go above and beyond, as we have experienced at other resorts. Stayed 6 nights - had 2 good experiences with waiters at dinner. Others took forever to take our order, and just not friendly at all. We literally just felt not important or cared about. Buffet breakfast has good food but again the service is really poor - out of 7 days only 1 day we had a lady come up and ask if we wanted water or cappuccino/latte, the other days I got myself water and whatever else I needed. Walking around resort staff don’t smile or greet you. Staff at towel hut had NO customer service skills AT ALL, so unfriendly... don’t even greet you as you walk up. You have you wash off the pool floats when you return them???? Sorry, isn’t that what they get paid for? Overall just EXTREMELY disappointed with the customer service here. Can make or break you vacation, and it definitely broke ours.
-ALCOHOL - apparently they don’t stock all the same types of alcohol at the restaurants and bars? Went to Red Parrot and my husband ordered Empire bourbon which he had been getting at the bar all day... the unfriendly and unhelpful waiter stated they didn’t have it. Again, with the customer service.... he could have went to the bar right next to the restaurant and got it for him... but instead my husband had to leave the restaurant and get it himself.
-SERVICE - No drink/food service at pool or beach - they had a single “cocktail waiter” walking around pool - rarely saw them- and literally have to flag them down, they don’t go up to you and ask if you need anything. Again, very rare sightings of them. Also, they don’t serve alcohol until after 11am. So you can’t even have a mimosa with breakfast.
-POOL - Pool is super small, not many chairs. Only like 3 spots with shade. Good luck if you want to sit at the pool with shade. People put towels down at the crack of dawn and many aren’t even at the spot all day. Really annoying and frustrating. Same for beach area- they have some covered tiki huts you can put chairs under, but all are reserved literally before 7am. Pool closes early at 7pm.
-RESTAURANTS - only 2 restaurants at Divi, other 3 are at Tamarijn

TIPS~~~~~
-make sure to request AND CONFIRM the room type you want - I emailed request for king bed and still got stuck with 2 queens.
-bring straw or your own insulated cups, no straws on resort
-dinner reservations open 48 hours in advance, although one night we went without a reservation and got in fine
-while we stayed this resort had lots of elderly people and families with young kids. Don’t recommend it for younger couples.

*Overall, I was really disappointed, definitely didn’t feel I got my money’s worth. I recommend looking into other resorts.

Trip to Aruba

Not a bad hotel, but what is their saving grace is their staff who are amazing, would I come back no I don’t think I would but never say never! We were unfortunate that the weeks we were there, there was a heatwave with it hitting 39 degree C or 102 degrees F which was just too hot with the humidity running in the 90s as well it was just too much. Then on the few occasions we did venture out it was so expensive to have a drink a pint of larger was $10 which works out at £8.10 this is not the local people’s fault as I realise that everything is imported which pushes up the price and not helped by the fact that local tax runs at 51% this is one island that is too rich for our pockets!
