Hotel Overview

Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive features only oceanfront rooms with a terrific, colorful look. This casual and lively low-rise resort offers many amenities and exceptional windsurfing. Guests staying have full access to the Divi Aruba All Inclusive Resort located right next door. 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.

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!

    Ms. Marina SuperStar- Cunucu Terrace

    My family and I visited the resort last week and had a grand old time. A ll staff were great and service was good. One person that really stood out was Ms. marina who took GREAT care of us during our breakfast and lunch. We bonded by the next meal. Ms. Marina was very attentive non intrusive and efficient in taking care of all the 7 of us. Greeting us each day with a big smile and professionalism with the genuine heart. First we met her i asked her if they had any hot sauce, she recommended the 'Papaya Hot Sauce" native to Aruba. I had never had that before and I love Papaya. It was delicious. Every meal period from there on the Papaya hot sauce was on our table(s). I am in the industry and this was Attention to detail and she definitely remembered each day. One day I asked her if they had fresh coconut water as my Mom and I love it as it is very healthy. There was no coconut water on the resort which was disappointing. Going the extra mile and way above and beyond, Ms. Marina got us coconut water the next day from her backyard. I was floored that she remembered and was very appreciative and excited as well. Needless to say, Ms. Marina made our stay one to remember in Aruba for all our family. Can wait to visit again next year! By the way ASK for Ms. Marina at breakfast and or lunch to take care of you. Plus if i remember correctly she is OFF on Tuesdays...... Thank you for Everything Ms. Marina samir

    Terrible experience

    I am currently here for a family vacation for my mother’s 60th birthday. For a family of four I paid almost$ 9,000. The quality of the room is poor and in a terrible location. I feel unsafe and management and staff has not been responsive. I was supposed to have an ocean view room but I need binoculars ti see the ocean. The front desk staff Ronald was rude and dismissive. A total waste of money.

    Beautiful, relaxing beach getaway!

    My husband and I stayed at the Tam for the first time for a week in July. We had THE BEST time! We were lucky enough to get an oceanfront room that went right out to the sandy beach (no rocks). We saved two chairs in the morning and then walked over to the Divi for breakfast. You can take a golf cart over but we liked the walk! It was about 15 minutes. The breakfast buffet was wonderful! So much to choose from. Our go-to was the omelet station with a side of bacon. You can go to Le Cafe at the Divi for excellent coffee and delicious pastries! We also liked the Divi better for the lunch buffet. Everyone was so kind and friendly. We got fresh towels from the towel hut each day (you just have to trade in your used towels). We mostly stayed at the beach but we also used the Divi Dutch Village pools that were right behind our room. The drinks were excellent. Bring your own reusable cup with a straw!! They will fill your own cup with your drink of choice. They give you a reusable water bottle but maybe bring your own Aluminum one to keep the water cold longer. Lots of ice and water stations! Make your reservations for dinner when you arrive. We just went to the concierge and she helped us! Each restaurant was wonderful- especially Pure Lime and the Red Parrot. The rooms do get sandy but they sweep and mop the floor for you each day which is so nice since daily housekeeping is a thing of the past in many places. Getting a taxi to and from the airport was very easy! We would definitely stay at the Tam again!

    Another Great Trip!

    Thorough review that hopefully clears up some confusion for those researching Tam/Divi. We returned for our 7th year as a couple and 2nd as a family of 2 adults/3 kids aged 8-13. Taxis from the airport (15 min ride) are regulated by the government - $26 for a small car; $28 for a van. Upon arrival, we checked in at the open-air lobby desk. I had requested adjoining rooms via email, and although never guaranteed, we were able to be accommodated. Folks on here have said no one helped them with their bags, but the golf cart drivers and bell hops will assist you, if needed. We are able bodied, so we walked and climbed the stairs ourselves. Your bracelet also acts as your room key. Rooms: The rooms were upgraded a couple of years ago and are clean and bright with extra drawers, hangers, outlets, tissues, LED lights, Netflix ability and bathroom duel sinks with pump bottles of body wash, shampoo, conditioner and hand sanitizer. The a/c works great! My only complaint is the sand has a tendency to be everywhere, especially with the trade winds and proximity to the beach. We were the first building adjacent to the lobby and yes, we could hear construction and music. A simple white noise app takes care of this for sleeping. There is a safe, coffee machine and mini fridge in each room, though the fridge is not stocked. There is also coffee in the lobby. There is truly nothing better than waking up and pulling the blackout curtain aside to see the sea! Pools: A nice change this year is that Tam guests are now allowed to also use the Dutch Village pools. We used the main pool (which plays music starting at 11am) and the Dutch pool (bigger, but dirty). Rolled-up towels on a chair mean you can take it. You are also provided blue pool/beach towels in your room when you arrive. Someone on here complained about using the same towel but there is a sign in your room saying you can exchange them for fresh ones anytime at the towel hut. The main Tam pool has drink/food service or you can step a couple hundred feet over to the Pizza Tutti Bar. There is a plunge pool under construction right now where the 2-story bar used to be. There are plenty of water filling stations and rinse showers around. The lobby bathrooms now require a scan of your room kay bracelet to enter. Beach: The beach is gorgeous. White sand, blue water, palm trees, shells, birds. The beach has looked the same since 2022. There are sections with rocks (bldgs 13-18) and then sections with sand (bldgs 19-24). There are plenty of chairs and palapas. I see people complaining on here about having to 'claim' your spot in the morning. It's perfectly convenient to grab a palapa (bring towels clips!), go grab breakfast and then come back and hang out. I saw chairs empty at all hours of the day. One of the days we took the free golf cart over to the Divi side of the resort and enjoyed the larger beach there. There are no beach vendors or hagglers aside from the 'Aloe Man', who is contracted with Divi/Tam. Food: Aside from folks with allergies, there is plenty to eat with variety, if you like. I've read that folks think the breakfast buffet is too repetitive, but they have fruit, smoothies, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt/toppings, pancakes, french toast, benedicts, potatoes, crepes, juices, cold cuts and an entire egg station where they will make you eggs or omelets to order! What else could there possibly be? For lunch, you can eat at the buffet with meats, fish, salads, sandwiches, pastas, hot dishes, bbq, etc or outside at the Pizza Tutti bar that has pizzas, sandwiches, fries and some of the best chicken tenders I've ever eaten! Dinner at the buffet is similar to lunch but with a different theme each night. The other restaurants require reservations, but if you download the app, you can reserve 2 nights ahead of time. I got tables at Red Parrot and Paparazzi on the app for 5 people no problem on the app. If you're feeling peckish, they have grab-n-go sushi, crackers, wraps and ice cream in the buffet anytime. I have diabetes and was able to eat a delicious and healthy variety of food throughout the 6 days. Pro tip: On Sundays ONLY, they serve mimosas in the buffet! Drinks: There are plenty of name brand alcohol bottles visible at each bar. For vodka, they have Stoli, Absolute, Sky, etc. They have local beer (Balashi - a light lager) and Heineken on tap. My kids had virgin frozen drinks everyday without a single scoff from a bartender. The prosecco is great but the wine is so so. The hotel provides water bottles in your room to stay hydrated throughout the day and the bartenders will also fill up our bigger reusable bottles from home with drinks, rather than going back more often for small cups worth. There are no paper or plastic napkins or straws because Divi is a certified ecofriendly company. Activities: We used the outdoor game space several times with pool tables and ping pong. We also checked out a volleyball for the beach at Divi - you can keep it for 2 hours at a time. Every evening, during sunset, there is live music or a dj playing. At night they have shows with local cultural dancers, acrobats, synchronized swimmers, singers, djs and movie night. It is not a club scene in the low rise section, but if you're bored, you're probably...boring. Check out is a breeze and you are asked to donate $1/night to their Divi Impact Fund. It is optional. Once they cut your room key, they offer a temporary bracelet so you can continue to eat/drink until you have to leave for the airport. They don't 'cut you off' like some folks on here have said. They will hold your luggage and then assist with a taxi or bus once you have to leave. Remember, US customs in Aruba happens BEFORE you leave the county, to leave extra time to get through multiple security lines. We are coming back in September and cannot wait!

    Honeymoon at the Tamarijn

    We stayed at the Tam from June 13-20th for our honeymoon. Yet again, another great stay. This was my 7th time in Aruba; 5th time at Tam and previously stayed at Divi twice. This was my wife's first time in Aruba and she is excited to return again next year. I had not been to the resort since 2018. They have made huge strides since I have been here last time. It is evident they are continually trying to improve and modernize their facilities. Food: I feel like this is the area the resort has upgraded the most. The food here has taken a HUGE step up. My wife and I loved pretty much every restaurant. We liked the Pure Lime the best, followed by Red Parrot and Ginger. Surprisingly, we weren't blown away by the Paparazzi (Italian). I thought the breakfast and lunch buffets took a huge step up as well. The food seemed much more fresh and made-to-order than years past. Bars/Drinks: Again, the resort has taken a big step up with their liquor selections. A lot of all-inclusives have a poor selection; using rail or bottom shelf liquors. You could choose from Jack, Jameson, Jim, Jose Cuervo, Captain, Absolute, etc., so definitely some name brand liquors to choose from. Service was always good at the bars as well. We had great service from Johnny and Civil. Beach/Pools: The beach was great. We were in the ocean every single day. I will say it wasn't as easy to get a hut on the beach as years past. We were in a building where the beach wasn't rocky, so I assume people staying in areas where the beach was rocky were coming our way to reserve huts. As long as we put our towels on chairs by 8am we were fine, which isn't that early. The pools behind the buildings are also very nice. Tam guests now "officially" have access to the Dutch Village pools which is nice. We used these three pools over the main Tam pool because they are much more quiet. Rooms: Again, rooms are much better than before. Definitely are renovated and the A/C worked great. Maids did a great job daily cleaning as well. They implemented a security beeper thing on the sliding door which was a nice addition. All in all, we had a great time and can't wait to return. I will say, we took a trip one day to the Divi during the daytime hours and we like the Tam so much better. The Divi seemed much more crowded and loud. We also ate at the Divi for breakfast one morning and didn't like it near as much as the Tam. Although the same food, the Tam's coffee was hotter, food seemed more fresh, and the staff more attentive. I actually got sick after eating the Divi's breakfast. The Tamarijn was in the midst of constructing their new restaurant/bar as well. Looks like it will be a nice addition to the resort. We will most certainly be back to the Tam!
