You get what you pay forPosted Nov 21, 2015
I found the deal in Expedia where essentially the room for 1 week was going to be about $50 outside of the normal price of airfare from Chicago to Aruba. Typically I don't spend a lot of time in the room so I didn't care so much about how small it was , however, we wanted to save money by not going out to eat and buying our own food and cooking in our "kitchenette " that was in the description. It ended up being a tiny corner of the room that had 2 burners, a sink and a mini fridge that was no cooler than the rest of the air conditioned room. Peanut butter and jelly it is... There was also spotty lack of water pressure with only 1 temperature of water, and the toilet wouldn't flush so many times that they just ended up bringing us a plunger to keep in the room and do it ourselves. All this being said, we spent most of our time at the neighboring village of Tamarijn and had a much better experience. Also, as the title of "you get what you pay for" states, I'm not giving my experience of an overall standpoint of the company - just THIS room in particular was just simply awful. Room never 49...never again. I think the staff knew it wasn't going to be so great (especially after we asked to upgrade and pay extra but they said they couldn't accommodate) because they did give us a $100 room credit to use at any of the Divi restaurants or shops, and passes for free breakfast buffet for the 2 of us for our whole stay ($40 value per day).

Hotel was close to the beachPosted Nov 17, 2015
Great location, townhouse style, pool areas were ok. Quiet location, not much open after 11:00pm. However since being home, I discovered we had been bitten by bed bugs. NOT GOOD, I will call the hotel tomorrow and let them know.

Divi resorts ArubaPosted Oct 28, 2015
Check in went smoothly even though Aruba had a power outage. We were upgraded because divi dutch was overbooked however we had a beautiful room in a very tranquil environment. Highly recommended!

A rest and relaxation vacastion.Posted Oct 25, 2015
Cons: like to see the hot tubs with jets working and heated water
Location: Love the location...short distance to grocery store and excellent nearby restaurants
It is my third time in ten years returning to Aruba and the Dutch Village..I accompanied friends and we all stayed in the Dutch Village..As always the resort is clean and well maintained..The hospitality staff from Shirley at the Tiki to Jimmy at the Happy Hour was most enjoyable...The resort staff was professional,polite, and efficient..I look forward to a return trip.

Watch out if you book at Divi !Posted Sep 29, 2015
Cons: More accurate booking information on Expedia. It is totally misleading.
Location: The beach is okay. It's right on a very busy road and there is no view.
Divi is a big chain in Aruba with 6 hotels, and they will put you in which ever of their properties they have a slot vacant in - not necessarily the one you booked for. I was supposed to be at the Divi next to my friends at the Riu Antilles Hotel, and I was actually placed 5 miles away near Oranjestad. Expedia does not mention any of this! I would not stay there again due to this. They put me in a tiny room with few amenities.
