    The refurbish rooms just made this resort even better. Love the mood lighting over the bed. Every room is beach front, especially the ground floor rooms that open right to the beach. Food is always good even during Covid rules. The drinks are not water down and bartenders are always friendly. Brought 2 couples with me the second time back and will be back again in August with 5 other couples. That's how much we love and promote this place. They should just pay me for promoting the resort. :) Seriously, best ocean front all inclusive resort in Aruba, quiet and relaxing.

    For the second time visiting Aruba, I chose the same resort as the first time we went. That being the Tamarijn! It did not disappoint this trip either! All rooms are ocean front which is spectacular. You walk out and you are literally on the beach. There are several locations to hop in the water or relax on the sand. This trip being slightly different due to COVID - the entertainment staff still did a wonderful job ensuring all guests had fun! On Wednesday mornings there is a bike/snorkeling tour which was FANTASTIC! The lead tour guide, Zef, was fun and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to make sure my son (13) had a great time. Along with all of the guests. When we got to the snorkeling spot - the snorkeling was awesome as well. I highly recommend doing this bike tour. It was about 3 hours - there was a water stop on the way, the bikes have "boost" so the peddling is easy, fruit/snacks/drinks after snorkeling are provided as well as towels. They still have Movie night at the Divi for kids and adults alike to enjoy, music around the pool. Vendors with awesome souvenirs almost nightly. The resort is also very close to downtown and the high rise food/shopping. The concierge desk was incredibly helpful in providing ideas for my son to do as well. Overall, excellent experience again!

    We returned for our 17th trip to the Tamarijn all-inclusive in March! As always the staff are very welcoming!! Everyone from the front desk, concierge, housekeeping, waitstaff, bartenders, cooks, servers, chefs, managers, booking staff, pool staff, security staff, and entertainment, basically everyone you encounter while you are there are so friendly and always willing to assist you in any way! We had a really fun and relaxing vacation once again! The beach is beautiful!!! The newly renovated rooms are very nice and comfortable. All of the dining areas are clean and serve wonderful food. Entertainment was returning to the Tamarijn while we were there after a short Covid-19 break per the government for everyone's safety. Once again we had a great trip! We are already looking forward to next time! Maybe New Years?!!

    Amazing Honeymoon!

    We had an amazing Honeymoon at The Tamarijn! The property is beautiful and you really can’t get a better view. The rooms are updated and all oceanfront which was nice. Opening the curtains in the morning and being able to see the green ocean from your bed was a nice touch. We were in building 15 which I highly recommend. Close to bars, restaurants, towel huts, and lobby. Food: Food was pretty good. The buffet at breakfast was really good but we found going before 8am the quality of the food was better since it was less busy. Buffet and the pool bar were really good for lunch. Red Parrot was our absolute favorite. I wish I went there more than once. The Coconut shrimp and salmon were incredible. Highly recommend going there! Palm Grill was fun and delicious. The caprese salad and the Chicken Alfredo at Paparazzi was great! We did not care for Pure Lime and only liked the appetizers at Ginger. Bars: The Bunker bar was awesome and has fun music and an amazing view (speakers did break during our stay though but usually lots of fun music). Coconuts has a roof top deck which not many people knew about. It was our secret spot to watch the sunset! The drinks weren’t my favorite. The signature drinks were good but too fruity to have a lot. Their margaritas and Mojitos were definitely different than I’m used to. I stuck to mainly mimosas with passion fruit or wine! Do try The Rum punch though that was delicious! Beach/pool: The beach was pretty rocky but you can’t beat the view. It was also nice since there are so many palapas. No need to go out early to pick a spot. The beach really was never crowded. The pool was small and was usually crowded with a lot of kids though. Overall it was nice but definitely not the nicest pool we’ve been to at resorts. It did have a great view of the ocean though. It wasn’t the nicest resort we’ve been to but the view cannot be beat! Short cab ride to downtown and to the high rise hotels. Overall an amazing vacation and would recommend it!

    Being locked out of cruising in the COVID era, we decided to try an All Inclusive after having docked here as a one day Aruba port of call last year. So happy to have stayed at Tamarijn. Service was great from the moment we booked with Clare, who gave us excellent tips, to Tabitha F who took care of dinner reservations at Red Parrot (and stopped by to say "hello and wish me a happy birthday", to Alphonso T's dinner/drink/dessert recommendations and service at Paparazzi. Food was excellent and better than on a cruise ship. My "go to" breakfast was eggs benedict - made fresh to order. Rooms were recently renovated, modern, beautiful and all beach front. Wake up, step out and onto the sand and into the ocean for a morning swim. Bring sand shoes as some entrances to the water have LOTS of shells (ouch) - but you can walk the shore to find a sandy walk in. Only room downside is tiny bathrooms. Rain shower and Aloe shampoo and soap products are awesome. Loved that the all inclusive works at TWO properties - the Tamarijn AND the Divi, offering multiple pools, restaurants, and light entertainment. Wish there was more entertainment, however, COVID restrictions limited the performers to one person only. Bicycles with "boast" were great and included along with Hobie Cats for sailing. We will be back and highly recommend.
