Unpleasant servicePosted Aug 21, 2014
Location: We went on the Atlantis Submarine tour, and it was great.
This is the review on Divi Dutch Village all inclusive vacation. Pros: Good food Large room Large selection of restaurants Not crowded beach, where you can find a place to sit under the umbrella. Cons: Very slow and unfriendly service on the reception and overall in the hotel Rude waiter and chief in the pizza bar The wifi was included but nobody gave us a code. There was no wi-fi in the room. I wish I stayed in a different hotel with friendlier staff. Also I bought a vacation package through expedia with the 3 tickets from jet blue. I couldn't get the assigned seats for the return tickets. 2 seats were available separately, but if you need to sit next to your child, you would have to pay extra $130. I am not sure if it's legal to sell tickets without enough seats on the plane, but it's definitely sneaky.

Nice Hotel close to the beachPosted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Space in the suite Proximity of pools and beach Cleanliness
Cons: Provide a map of all the Divi resort areas The housekeeping closet was outside our unit and there was often loud conversations that echoed.
Location: The local bus would take us to down town or in the opposite direction to the high rise hotel areas where there were lots more shops and restaurants.
We had reserved a one bedroom suite at the Divi Dutch. We were very pleased with the amount of space and proximity to two pools. The beach (Druif) was gorgeous but rocky underfoot. It was easy walking distance to three supermarkets and about a 15 minute walk into downtown Oranjestad. We did not initially understand some of the nuances between the three different Divi areas. It would have been nice to have a map of the resort area. The pools were fabulous. The Staff was appropriately concerned that we did not sunburn. The Iguanas and bird life around the pool was wonderful. Would stay here again with better knowledge of other activities and entertainment in the area. We were initially surprised at the prices at restaurants but were able to find good, affordable meals. Having a kitchen in the suite was very helpful as regards varying wake up times in the party.

DiviPosted Jul 22, 2014
Check in agents do not care. During my stay, I complained many times about the wifi service to no success. I stayed the entire time without Internet.

Not The Room I RevservedPosted Jul 22, 2014
I was in a room that did not match what was presented on the website. It was in the back of the hotel with a view of the street on the 3rd floor with no elevator. I was charged an additional $285 dollars to change rooms to the Links, that room was a 5 star.

Great place for the independent tourist!Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: This is a great location. It's quiet, it's fifty yards from the beach, and a short walk from food and stores. The kitchette is small but useful.
Cons: You get the impression that they haven't updated this facility in a long time. Strangely, the hot tub doesn't get hot, even though the pool is great.
Location: You'd have to try not to have fun on Aruba. You can do anything from sit on the beach to play bingo in the casino, to scuba diving and skydiving.
The key to this hotel is that you can make your own experience. If you can get these rooms at a good rate you will have enough money left to do WAY better than the all-inclusive experience. This facility is surrounded by the Tamarijn Resort, an all-inclusive place where you can eat and shop as well. But right across the street, within easy walking distance, are two restaurants that are GREAT for the money spent (Promenade and DeliFrance), and two grocery stores (with liquor) as well. These rooms have a simple but very useful kitchenette, so you are set. Most activities on the island will come pick you up and drop you off. In addition, you can go rent a car at Tamarijn, and go anywhere on Aruba you want. So if you enjoy making your own vacation as you go, this is the place!

Dutch village stayPosted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: A good room for an ok price.
Cons: need better wi-fi
Location: My room was at Divi Dutch Village, on Eagle Beach. The beach was great, also went to the casino at night. Good place to slow down and relax.
The staff was great, the only problem was the wireless internet, never got on line with the Divi village wi-fi.

Great area! But wi-fi needs to be fixedPosted Jul 17, 2014
The area is close to all. But me who always hit the internet won't be satisfied because the wi-fi is not working at all. You have to go all the way to the main Divi to access wi-fi. Staff was very helpful and attentive though.

Nice but not outstandingPosted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: The location is nice, the southern side of the beach in front of the hotel is a bit noisy, you can hear the loud traffic form the streets nearby.
Cons: The rooms are a bit cheap looking.
Location: Don't take the tour on Palm Island: it's sooo disappointing and fake :/
The location is really awesome, right in front of the ocean. Even the buildings that are not literally on the beach, are still extremely close to it - just across the street. The hotel itself is nice but it would probably need a refresh, the rooms in particular. I was not amazed by the food options though: the hotel has a bunch of restaurant but they seems to be really touristy: the buffet that's in front of the beach is not great and expensive for what it offers; the Mulligans restaurant though is not that bad, we had pizza and onion rings there and they're actually pretty good.
