Excellent location for Seniors

Posted Jul 20, 2017
Pros: Location just steps from beach; Free shuttle to restaurants at nearby Divi Village; and a free shuttle ride to Casino complex.
Cons: A published list of shuttle routes and times. (shuttles could be requested from room phone, but not always convenient)
Location: Hotel Resort (3 facilities) provides most needs (pools, beaches, restaurants- all-inclusive if desired, casino- with bingo, etc)
Spent a week in total relaxation steps from the pool and steps from the beach. Free sLocation steps from beachhuttles were available to transport to Casino, restaurants and more.

Nice Hotel near the beach

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: The support of the staff memebers
Cons: update rooms and furniture
Location: Near to car rentals and food stores
The hotel rooms are old and furniture smelly. The lighting in the room was poor. That restrooms were small. The pools do not look like the pictures on their website. The workers are very helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed our trip very much. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When in Aruba everything is slow and you feel very relaxed.

Good Location

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: Room, staff, location, check-in and check-out, location.
Cons: We really had no problems. Towel exchange closed early.
Location: Great beach, lots of nice places to eat, some fairly expensive but good value. Hotel is on opposite side of town from airport and traffic is slow.
Quick check-in. Got surprise Expedia up-grade on room. Very nice 1-BR unit with lots of closet space. Nice ground level covered patio near one of the smaller pools. Internet worked very well from LR and Patio - not so well from BR. Lots of nice pools and landscaped grounds. Could see ocean from our patio and was a short walk to beach. Water and beach was excellent. Battery in safe went out and was fixed 1/2 hour after I called. Staff was very good. Ice machine just outside door. Towel exchange was generally efficient and easy. We rented a small car from Avis ($ 206/week) traffic is heavy and to get to this hotel you have to drive through busy downtown area. Hotel had shuttle service but we didn't use it.

Food/Facilities/Beach very nice even for std room

Posted Apr 20, 2017
We went "cheap" on this vacation, only spending $1650 per person, but all-inclusive. The hotel had some pretty bad reviews, but also some good reviews. The beach was awesome, and facility were 4 star, and the staff was typical Aruba (under staffed compared to Jamaica). I would give this a solid 4 star. Definitely family oriented. If you are looking for luxury experience, this is not it. If you are looking for nice hotel with good package, at low cost, this is perfect.

Hotel not as posted on web

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Pros: That staff was very friendly and made our room issue right. The staff just wanted us happy, and they did.
Cons: update web for more needed details about what was needed for room
Location: Divi as a whole was fine. they are updating the old parts of their resort. nice there, would stay at the other Divi resorts before going back.
Booked Regular King room. Hoped for 1st floor as can't do steps. When we got there, had 3rd floor king bed studio, no balcony and windows to outside did not open. After complaining to staff, was offered an upgraded room, which was king regular, what we booked in the first place for a $400.00 upgrade. Expedia did very poor job booking what we wanted.

Fifth Stay

Posted Apr 14, 2017
Pros: Home-like features, beautiful pools, beautiful beach that always had available palapas.
Cons: The room was dated but they're renovating. The wifi could be stronger.
Location: Perfect place if you're just about sitting on a quiet beach. If you're looking for more of a party head to the high-rise area.
We obviously like the Dutch Village as we keep coming back. I was disappointed when I didn't get one of the renovated rooms and asked to change my first floor older room. I wasn't able to change but in the end it was really great. We had a gorgeous pool on either side and it was a straight shot to the beach without stairs. Overall - a great experience as always - and a shout out to the very friendly Amy at the front desk! Note about this always beautiful beach - it was PERFECT this year. Perfect sand and you just walk into the water without rocks, etc.

Thank you for your review and we are so pleased that you keep returning to Divi Dutch Village. Our Phase 2 renovation will be complete in September and Phase 3 by the end of the year. The entire resort will then be updated. We hope you will return to see all the changes.
