Loved the Divi Aruba Resort All inclusivefrom A TripAdvisor Member
A Honeymoon to remeber!from A TripAdvisor Member
But, the Divi was great!
We were disappointed by our garden view room with (2)double beds when we checked in, it reminded me alot of a dorm room but we called the front desk and they quickly moved us to a ocean view room with king sized bed. The room was nice, but no drawers so we had to keep our clothes all in the closet on metal shelves. We had a balcony with a distant view of the ocean.
The grounds were nice, tons of iguanas that are not afraid to jump right up on your beach chair. Don't feed them food, they won't leave you alone!
The pools were nice, there are 2, a quite pool and the main pool. The Main pool was nice but not very big. They give you rafts and towels at the pool which was nice. Lots of kids in the pool though so if you want peace and quiet, head over to the quite pool.
The beach was nice but it got very hot in the sand. They have little huts that you can use on the beach, but you have to get there early to reserve one as well as any chairs around the pool.
The food was good. We liked the buffet and the a la carte restaurants.
We liked the fact that we could use the restaurants at the neighboring hote, the Tamarijn, which they had constant shuttles back and forth.
The Red Parrot restaurant at the Divi was great and the Italian Restaurant at The Tamarijn was also very good. Plenty of bars and good drinks, tip the bartenders and they will take very good care of you.
We also loved the snack bar where they made brick oven personal pizzas and grilled sandwhiches, it was open until 1:00 AM and we hit it every night before going back to our room for a late night snack.
Since we were there for 12 days, we decided to venture off the resort for a few meals. We would definitely recommedn El Gaucho, Carlos & Charlies and The Amazonian. We had great experiences at all of these restaurants, even though we stayed at an all-inclusive, it was worth it to pay extra for meals off of the resort.
We also loved the free bike rentals, we took them 3 or 4 times and rode into town for shopping and lunch.
We had a great time at the Divi Aruba Beach Resort and will always have fond memories of our honeymoon together there. We will definitely go back again and would recommend it to anyone!

Not fancy, but funfrom A TripAdvisor Member
stayed at fancier places, so our first impression was a little less
than enthusiastic. They took us to our gardenview room, and I
immediately wanted to change. Moldy smell, no view, and I wouldn't step
foot in the so-called whirlpool tub. So we changed and got in one of
the beachfront casitas. I would highly recommend that. Simple room, but
just a few feet from the ocean. The exercise room? Forget it! We called
it a fitness museum. Equipment that was easily thirty years old!
But, strangely, we would go back to the Divi, and here's why. It is the best beach in Aruba, and we swam everyday. The bartenders, especially Dino, were friendly and awesome. The drinks were plentiful. The food was good. The resort shares with the Tamarind, so you can eat there too. You're close to the busline, so you can go downtown and shop easily. It's walking distance from the casinos. There are definitely fancier places to stay in Aruba. But if you're there to relax, have fun, and be comfortable, with a lot of friendly people, the Divi is definitely for you.
Divi Timefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Way Above our Expectationsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Unless you are a jetsetter, stay on Eagle beach and avoid Palm Beach where the high rises are. Palm Beach is very busy and too much activity there with boats and jetskis zooming by and rental shacks everywhere.
Eagle beach (where the Divi is) is much more laid back and relaxing.
Take a snorkel tour over the wreck and see the reef too. It's so beauiful and the wreck is right in front of you. Take the jeep tour too..the island is so different at every turn. Just see the concierge at the Divi and she will hook you up. They are very organized and efficient there. Not expensive either!
It's nice to be on an island where you don't see beggers or cheesy vendors at every turn. You don't see starving dogs and cats roaming the streets. It's a very comfortable and relaxing place to be. You will not regret staying at the Divi. In fact, you'll definitely plan on returning for years to come. Splurge for the aromatherapy message...it will make your trip complete. And really, it won't kill you to tip the wait staff a buck or two now and again. They work hard for your comfort! Have a great time! We'll be back for sure.
Great Resort for a Great Pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Wish we had done the Kookoo Kanuka party bus. Snuba was pretty cool - "the island" where you snuba was pretty boring. You have to stay at least 7 nights....Next time I think we will shoot for 9. It was awesome! We are ready to go back to the Divi!
Top Local Tips for Oranjestad
Rent a Jeep & tour the island yourself! We rented a Jeep and we had an Aruba tour book & we just went around the island ourselves & read up on which ruins we were at, what church we were seeing etc. It was so much fun!
Flea market close to DIvi DIvi There is a flea market that runs Saturday and Sunday about 100 yards on the road past the Tajmarin. I happened to read it in the paper, no one said a word about this - it was a great market, got tons of cheap gifts, t-shirts, and some lovely linen clothing. Was surprised no one told us about it and it wasn't advertised.....it's literally at the end of the sister resort, went with a guy with bad hips and doesn't walk much, took the golf cart to end of property and walked right there no problem. If you do any shopping, this is where to go for cheapies without a whole day in town.. For the hubbies, American beer there too, 1.50 a bottle!!!!!
Check out everything... There is so much to see and do on such a small island. Enjoy the sights, sounds, food and friendly atmosphere as well as the great beaches.
