The Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive is located ten minutes away from the International Airport and five minutes from the capital city of Oranjestad.

236 oceanfront rooms boast perfect views and are just steps from the water. Located in two-story buildings, each accommodation has a patio or balcony, one king or two queen beds, and WiFi is offered as an added option.

There are numerous dining choices to suit the tastes of every guest. From stylish beachfront restaurants to casual poolside grills, open-air or enclosed seating, these venues offer everything from fine quality steaks or hearty Italian fare to Asian-fusion cuisine or pizza and snacks. Guests staying at either the Tamarijn Aruba or Divi Aruba have full use of the restaurants, bars, and lounges at both resorts. Meet the friendly bartenders at all seven bars, each serving cocktails, mixed drinks, wines, beer, and soft drinks. The Bunker Bar, a longtime favorite, overlooks the clear blue sea and keeps the atmosphere lively with island tunes.

Start your day with a windsurfing lesson or take a bike into town. There are plenty of activities to fill your days, like kayaking, snorkeling, sunfish sailing, beach volleyball, and tennis. The more adventurous can scale the 30-foot rock-climbing wall on the beach. Or, get a workout with a spectacular view at the fitness center.

As the sun begins to set, the night rhythms begin to rise. Learn how to salsa dance. Sit back and take in a show. The weekly Circus Dance show gathers a crowd with its acrobatic performances and feats of fire. Grab a cocktail poolside and take in the Aruba nights. Feeling lucky? The resort is just a short walk to the Alhambra Casino!

    Worst hotel ever, avoid!!!

    We have been here since Saturday and we have had nothing but problems! This is our second stay at this resort but sadly we will never return, even if the trip was free, we would decline the offer! We were not given any welcome drinks upon arrival and when we got to our rooms there wasn’t even a single bottle of water in the fridge. The room we are in is very dated and even worse, it’s infested with ants! We complained and were basically told to put up or shut up. The air conditioning unit leaks, the water pressure in the bathroom is low, the rooms were not cleaned properly, there is no room service and you cannot take food away from the restaurants. The food is mediocre, as are the cheap drinks. If you do not eat pork, or you have special dietary needs, then this is not the place for you. When we arrived we were told we could make bookings for the restaurants by calling concierge. We were able to do this once. We called again today and were told we cannot make bookings over the phone! The receptionist was extremely rude, so I asked for a manager and she hung up! I then called the front desk and was told the manager wouldn’t be available for another two hours so I’d just have to wait. The service is absolutely diabolical, it’s like the staff go out of their way to be completely unhelpful. I have never been treated so badly. Our toilet has been blocked twice. The first time we were told we had to wait until 8 am for the maintenance team to start. We had to wait 40 minutes. The second time we were told we would have to wait over two hours even though we had a diabetic pensioner in our room! When the plumber eventually arrived, we were told not to flush toilet paper and instead we should put the soiled paper in the bin! This is disgusting and inhumane. The room is only cleaned once a day, can you imagine the scent and the flies that built up soiled toilet paper would bring? We are completely disappointed with the treatment we have received and we wouldn’t recommend this hell hole to our worst enemy. Please do not waste your hard earned money, go elsewhere and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

    Ok resort, beautiful views

    First time staying at this resort, but have traveled to Aruba before. We picked this resort because the kids stayed free and we brought our kids this time. We arrived at the resort around 130p on our check in day. The lady at the reception desk would not let us go to our rooms, even though they were ready, until 3pm. I have traveled a lot, and this was the first time we have ever had to wait. The rooms are dated, small, and the furniture is falling apart. They were clean though. One day our bath towels smelled like fish horribly bad. The views from the room are beautiful, but the balconies have cracked glass and just look old. The pool was closed from 7a-7p. When we would get to the pool around 8am, it was never cleaned and about half of the time someone would come and clean it between 9a-10a. We didn’t drink a lot at the bars, but didn’t find any of the staff to be friendly. They all seemed annoyed when we would ask for a drink or food. And be prepared to wait. They are in no hurry to help you. All cheap liquor and drinks are full of sugar. We only ate at Ginger, Palm grill, and Pure lime (Divi). Food was good, service was lacking. The one waitress made my son cry at dinner. The beaches are rocky, but we knew that before arriving so we brought water shoes. Buffet had a wide variety of food, most was pretty good. But again, be prepared to wait it you want something cooked/prepared for you. The doors would open and there would be no one at the cooking stations for 5-10 minutes and all the other staff members would just stare at you without offering assistance. It really doesn’t seem like the employees enjoy their jobs. Very rarely did anyone say hi as you walked past or smile. But the views are beautiful and the rooms are just steps from the beach.

    Aruba tamarijn

    Checked in on the 8th June after a two hour delay from LGW and weather was gorgeous. Hotel is lovely as is the sister hotel, where we can use their facilities as well. Room as a lovely outlook straight on the beach/sea which is two minutes from the patio (ground floor). Rooms are a little dated but adequate and well equipped (safe, hairdryer, coffee machine (no milk supplied) and fridge. But only sleeping there so it’s ok. Staff are really friendly and helpful in the bars and restaurants although the desk staff could be a little bit more courteous. Edwin is the man to see if you want to go deep sea fishing. Found my Jack (to me Gill),Julio, JP, Latanya, Doris, Adolfo all who are lovely and enjoy their company. They even danced and sang for my hubby’s birthday and gave him a cake. Recommend a one day hire car to see the whole island which is beautiful and very safe. Weather is gorgeous every day since we have been here and would definitely recommend a visit. The sea is the most beautiful turquoise I have seen on my travels and the pelicans are lovely to watch. See the iguanas walking around the pool at the sister hotel as they are amazing. Only suggestion I would have is to make the bookable restaurants, smart dining as amazing how many Americans turn up in shorts, t-shirt and baseball cap when we Brits turn up in long trousers & shirt and the women dressed in their finery.

    Great time at Tamarajn

    Stayed at Tamarajn June 8-15 with my girlfriend. We had an amazing time. We stated in room 1915, perfect location next to the cabana bar, and steps to the beach. Although buildings 14-18 are closer to the lobby, the beach area outside those rooms had rocks you'd need to climb over to enter the water, so 19 was perfect as it had direct beach access, plus being next to the bar was a plus. Room was nice, cleaned every day, and had everything we needed. The food was better than expected. The buffet had something for everyone, and the a la carte restaurants were good. I liked the red parrot and the palm grill most. The bartenders work hard and were great. Tipping them at the beginning or as you go will definitely ensure they take care of you, but its not necessary for good service. We hired a personal driver for 4 hours and had a great time on a tour of the island. His name was Cerry and I'd recommend him. We did the party bus one night, we had fun, the 4 bars were kinda lame but with two bus loads of people it was entertaining. I'd say try it. The shuttle's going back and forth between the two resorts was great, you should spend time at both resorts, with the divi resort having a better night life with the live music. If recommend the tamarijn to anyone, you'll love it.

    simply amazing

    2nd visit to Aruba 1st visit to this hotel , it was simply amazing !!!!! went as a couple for our anniversary we stayed for 14 nights . let me get straight into the review . positives are : Fantastic location right on the beach front , the water is clean and warm , be sure to wear swimming shoe can get a little bit rocky . An easy walk into the town which is only half an hour max , Aruba is very very safe ,only a 5 minute walk to the shared hotel which is the divi . Massive choice of bars and restaurants easily 10 places to eat and about 6 different bars the standard of the food was very good apart from the Mexican . The buffet was also excellent loads of choice you wont go hungry believe me .. Drinks selection spot on , large selection of soft drinks and huge choice of branded spirits and sparkling wine .if you ask for branded you will get branded , absolute vodka , branded whisky , courvoisier brandy , captain Morgan rum beefeater gin the list goes on and on , the lager on tap was great , miller Heineken and also a very nice local beer . pool area were very clean always lots of entertainment going on , or you could go to any of the other pools for piece and quiet , i think there was at least 5 pools between both hotels .. weather is very very hot its a super high UV so go carefully , the wind is most welcoming it cools you off its a lovely warm breeze which you do need trust me . Cant really think of any negatives apart from our TUI rep being awful
