Breakfast was served from 7am-11am. Did not open until 5-10 min after 7am.Lunch was from 12pm-3pm. closed locked doors at2:50pm. We walked in at 2:45 waiter&waitresses ignored people at that time for drinks. Starting taking all food away at 2:50pm. did not get any drinks,deserts,or much food selection putting all food away 15 minutes early. Same goes for chefs to cook salmon or hamburgers turned lights off in area threw remaining fish & hamburger in garbage.

the resort was very nice and parts were very quaint. The buffets were sufficient but not exciting. The staff were accommodating. Th construction on going was noticeable but not bothersome. it was our first time to Aruba and we only wanted to relax. We did and enjoyed the facilities.I would recommend the resort

I have been to the Divi and Tamarijn 8 times the only areas to improve on would be less salt on foods in all eateries and allow a later check out to Red Parrot members

I was disappointed in my trip to Aruba. People told me for years that Aruba is so nice and friendly. However, that is not what we found on our trip to the Divi Aruba All inclusive. The breakfast Buffett was poorly serviced, couldn't get anyone to bring you coffee, juice or a mimosa. We had to chase down the staff in order to get any service! Bar staff was friendly but didn't want to make any special drinks, they only made basic Margaritas, and some frozen drinks. We asked for mojitos and a bar tender told us they don't muddle or do mojitos as it would take too long. I have gone to various other all inclusive places in Mexico, DR, etc and have never been told that!! We just found the staff very stand offish and not customer oriented. Such a disappointment

Overall good experience but reason put poor for checkin was they didn't follow through on my 0y anniversary surprise for my wife. Prior to arrival I emailed & received confirmation a bottle of wine & personally written card would be in the room. It wasn't & that was disappointing since this was a special occasion. The people were great for checkin/out but the execution was disheartening.

Went on our honeymoon to Divi first week of June, beautiful beaches. only complaint was the construction right outside our oceanview room the first three nights we stayed. Every morning waking us up at 7am. Of course by the third night, we complained and received a $100 voucher to the gift shops/casino or half day depalm island tour. The bed in our room was also terrible. overall trip and atmosphere was amazing. buffet food was not good, restaurants were amazing. Pure Lime and the italian restaurant were our favorite.

We stayed at Divi All Inclusive for 8 nights. The beach was beautiful: white sand, clear water, clean beach. The resort experience was terrible. The staff from the front desk to the servers at the restaurants seemed annoyed that tourists were there and they had to actually do their job. The first night, at the Red Parrot, our server disappeared and we had to track down other servers to get water and to place orders. The 6th night, we had no hot water in our room which took over 2 hours to fix. The manager on duty never even apologized or addressed me directly. Overall, terrible experience. I will return to Aruba, but will never stay at a Divi resort.

Food was nothing to write home about the attitudes of activities desk very poor, housekeeping does not know how to clean. Paint peeling on ceiling, waters planes all over the floor from the shower, stained bedspread. Huge dustbunnies & hair clumps. Screen missing in windows for bathrooms, geckos could crawl into bathrooms, ants in the bathrooms, which you don't notice until they crawl around in the sink, or on the white towels that housekeeping folds & lays on the sink or if you happen to be brushing your teeth and you look very closely down at the sink. The bathroom was updated, but the sink is black with little sparkly colors, so hard to see anything crawling around. Be aware ! So if did not work in either of the resorts, nor did the computers, only 1 out of at 24 computers worked. We love Aruba and intend to go again, it would never stay at another Divi property again.

Please do NOT listen to any negative reviews about the Divi Aruba!! We just returned from a fantastic stay at this resort from Feb 4th to 11th We had a beautiful room with housekeeping service doing a fabulous job every day. The entire staff is incredible. Special shout out to Jennifer and Rafeek (front desk), Allen at the pool and beach bar was the best...We miss you bud! The food is amazing at the buffet. We've never been to a resort that serves eggs benedict for breakfast...so good. The Red Parrot was our favourite of all the specialty restaurants. Pure Lime is just okay but far too salty. Aruba is "One Happy Island", we can't wait to go back next year! The beach is breathtaking. The sunsets and the entertainment at the Pelican were outstanding. Thank you...we'll be back to this beautiful resort. 5 star all the way!!! $$ well spent! We love Aruba!!

A lot of Highs and Lows

My wife and I stayed last week Saturday to Saturday. Check in was a breeze and it was pretty busy so it was a good start. I found the staff with the exceptions of a few at the buffet and front desk (who could have attitude) to be very nice and professional. The concierges were extremely helpful and I received reservations to the restaurants no problem which I was concerned about. I found Pelican and Ginger to be good to very good. I found paparazzi to be un edible and decided to eat off the resort following that. Windows was excellent and they do offer a deal to those staying at Divi AI so it was affordable. Barefoot which again you have pay for we went to on Valentines Day and it was the best part of our trip. I found the liquor to be average just not high class. As far as the beach it is wonderful. White sand blue water. Stayed in an Oceanfront Lanai, requested first floor well before hand in an email however was told none available but they made no promises so I guess I can t get mad at that. The room is was very basic, but very clean and feel that housekeeping did a wonderful job. The Wi fi is terrible, do not bank on it if you are going to try and work. This was our first time in Aruba and I think next time I may stay at a DIVI property, however I do not feel the all inclusive part is worth it as their are so many other options on the island and it was very safe to travel. All in All a good trip with beautiful views and nice staff. A few bumps in the road but a relaxing vacation. May be a bit overpriced.

Second visit - didn't disappoint!!

We had such a good visit two years ago at this property that we didn't know if it would be as good the second time around. One happy island led to another happy visit! I would agree with recent posts of the Divi. The island of Aruba is beautiful and the Divi has one of the best spots on it. The beach is amazing and the weather is beautiful. If this is what is most important to you on a vacation than this is the place to be. No- the Divi is not the Ritz Carlton- so if you are expecting a 5 star facility you will be disappointed. There are parts of the resort that need updating, showing a little wear and tear, furniture could be replaced, pillows not as fluffy as can be, towels are frayed, etc but remember you get what you pay for. With the exception of the grumpy front desk female employee that checked us in on Feb 9 - everyone else we interacted with over the week we were there were warm and friendly. No, there are not butlers to make your dinner reservations or reserve your tiki hut on the beach, but you are not paying for that either. The chair game to reserve beach chairs does stink but I haven't been to an all inclusive that doesn't have it. If you want a front row tiki you will have to be out on the beach at 5 am to save a spot. Not ideal but its just the way it is and if you know about it up front you can deal with it. Food at the Divi was considerably better than many other All Inclusive we have been to. Impressed with the Red Parrot, Ginger, and Paparazzi. Drinks were strong and you can request some top shelf liquor. House wine is not very good however so I would recommend finding another drink for the week. You can purchase better quality but its a good chance to try some drinks that you normally wouldn't order. Divi has water coolers across the property which is wonderful to self serve and fill your water bottles. It is awesome and you don't have to keep on bugging the bar staff for water. Also love the self serve expresso/coffee machine in the front lobby. If you want a great beach - don't hesitate to book. Tips for your trip- -ground floor rooms tend to have a musty smell especially in room blocks 1 and 2 - if this bugs you- request upper level that also gets you a balcony. Patios on ground floor rooms are small and no place to leave your suits out to air dry. Casita rooms are not any bigger than rooms in vista buildings and they only have a patio and one sink vs two in vistas -bring towel clips for your beach chairs - it is really windy and you will need them -bring an insulated mug to keep your drinks cold and save trips to the bar -bring your own shampoo/conditioner/body soap. There are some provided but not high quality -if you need a hairdryer with a lot of power - bring your own -wifi is spotty so just be patient -awesome exercise facility so bring your work out shoes It's a great place to stay to experience Aruba. Their beach is their best assist, not the resort rooms themselves. The people are overall friendly and hardworking. Food and drink are exceptional for all inclusive standards. Don't be afraid to book but do not get upset if its not a 5 star property. You get what you pay for and we were thrilled with our price and our trip!

We loved loved loved our week vacation at Divi AI. I will try to give a balanced review so you can decide for yourself if this is the place for you. Check in was a breeze. No wait, and our receptionist informed us our room was ready. We weren’t expecting it, and it was a nice surprise. We booked a Garden View room and we were thrilled to be in Vista II. Everything was renovated. Big modern bathroom with double sinks and large walk in shower. There was always plenty of hot water but you might have to wait a minute or two. Nice sized patio. Very quiet and hardly heard any noise in hall or above. Steps out to quiet pool and bar. Restaurants were good. We loved the Red Parrot especially. We sat outside and watched the magnificent sunsets there. (If you are expecting Michelin quality food and service this isn’t the place) We had no difficulty getting reservations any night. We were flexible and a party of 2 so that might have made it easier. We also ate at Ginger, Paparazzi and Pure Lime. These three were also good. Ginger offered Sake and Pure Lime frozen margaritas. I don’t know why previous guests posted about poor service. What is the big rush? It’s not like you have anywhere else to go. Lol. We were never rushed off a table which is common back in NY. Bartenders were all very nice. Some made better drinks than others. The service at the two bar restaurants always very friendly and prompt. Coco Bar served made to order pizza and sandwiches. The Sandpiper bar served made to order burgers and the best grilled cheese sandwiches. Always with a smile. There have been much written about Papalas.<sp>. If you have a room right outside your door and want one right there you’re going to have to set your alarm. Other wise walk towards to Sandpiper Bar. Plenty always available. Plus lunch drinks and nice clean restaurant.

What I wish I knew before our first trip to Aruba and Divi

Aruab's weather is nearly perfect. Temperature is about eighty degrees every day (plus or minus four degrees). Water temp is great and sunsets are great but, it rained every day... for about five minutes (hardly an inconvenience). It never feels hot because there is always a breeze (anywhere from light to gusty). TIP: bring beach towel clips for chairs to keep towels from blowing off. Divi Aruba is located in the low-rise Eagle Beach area just outside of downtown Oranjestad and about a fifteen minute cab ride from the airport. *** It's less crowded and more laid back than the more lively high-rise Palm Beach area.*** Divi has two adjacent all-inclusive resorts (Divi Aruab and Tamarijn Aruba) that are separated by about a half mile of beach but all amenities are shared. The advantage of being spread out is Divi never seems over crowded (the beach in front of neighboring properties appeared more crowded/less spacious. That being said, many early birds compete for their preferred spot on the beach. Of the two resorts, Tamarijn is larger with three a la carte restaurants (versus two at Divi) as well as the fitness center for both resorts - stay at Tamarijn you want to be closer to more activities/entertainment. Both Divi Aruba and Tamarijn have its own buffet as well as a bar and grill that features brick oven pizza (if chicken nuggets and fries are important to you, the Tamarijn bar and grill also has a fryer). Food is good but keep in mind all-inclusive = buffet. If looking for the quality and variety of an upscale buffet, go to the Wynn in Las Vegas. Divi is more comparable to a Golden Corral: hot and cold food trays with something for everyone as well as some nicer options like an omelet / cook to order egg station at breakfast, a crepe station and rotisserie chicken at lunch, a pasta station and carving (different each day... snapper, lamb, rib eye, turkey) station at lunch and dinner. For the price paid, the quality and variety seem to be a good deal. A la carte restaurants consistently do a nice job preparing beef. Red Parrot, Ginger, and Palm Grill have very good food quality - better than any other all-inclusive a la carte restaurant that we've been to. Pure Lime and Papparazzi restaurants are fine but more average than good. If you believe Olive Garden invented Italian food, you will enjoy Papparazzi more than we did. TIP: make dinner reservations two days in advance (earliest allowed). Despite being fully booked, restaurant tables were never fully occupied and there was never a rush to turn tables. Beverages. Coffee is mediocre. In-room Nespresso machines are your best alternative on the property and guests (especially those from Boston area) routinely walk to a Dunkin Donuts located a block off property. Premium alcohol is fairly limited (Absolute, Myers, Beefeater, etc) and well liquor, which is fine for frozen drinks, is from a local producer, Ron Tropical. Keeping with the more laid back theme, there did not appear to be much excess drinking. Bars do not serve until 11am and there is no urgency when serving. The only negative was the slow WiFi / internet connectivity but it won't stop us from returning in another year or so.
