We just got home from a week at Divi all-inclusive and there are no words to express how incredible our week was. Everything was perfect. The resort is beautiful, the food is excellent, and the staff is amazing friendly and helpful. The beach is breathtaking, and the pool is awesome. Shout out to Shirley at the concierge desk who is so helpful and friendly.
I would recommend this place to everyone looking to have a top-notch vacation experience. we can't wait to go back.

The food is really good, from the buffet to the restaurants on the different sites. The waiters and waitresses were all very helpful and kind. I have to say the Red Parrot was our favorite restaurant! Exquisite mahi mahi, red snapper and divine steak dish! Not to mention the cheesecake! The service is great everywhere we went, especially Caroline the desk manager and Jennifer at the concierge desk. The beds are super comfortable, the housekeeping was great - always fresh towels and our beds fixed. We stayed in the vista 3 building which was newer and we had absolutely no complaints. Air conditioning was great, the pool always had towels on all the chairs, always plenty of lounge chairs at the beach and fresh beach towels every morning. The beach is stunning, the water was emerald green but a little rocky, however, considering there was a tropical storm in the other Caribbean islands, we had no complaints. I suggest 50 sunscreen! We didn’t put any the first day and we got burned! The entertainment wasn’t much - mostly live music and karaoke night which was fun. The limbo night was hilarious! My husband was a little disappointed because we are used to seeing shows, dances, trapeze acts at the other trotte we’ve stayed at - there was nothing like that here. That was the only thing lacking actually. All in all, I give this resort a 5 star! ??????????
First time to Aruba. Overall excellent experience.

First time to Aruba. Overall excellent experience. Great beach. Calm sea.
Very friendly staff (special shout out to Asia and Mary at the Pelican Terrace and Francis for making us feel welcome and valued). Though the staff spoke English, there can be a bit of a communication issue at times.
Pelican Terrace buffet was very good. Regarding some restaurants we tried - Red Parrot not recommend. The food was not well prepared. At Paparazzi (at Tamarijn) the sauce tasted like that of canned Chef-Boyardee. Pure Lime had a great margarita and key lime pie, but no salsa for chips? Really? Food there was disappointing as well. But be sure to stop at the Cafe Diva for a expresso/cappuccino/latte and roll/croissant in the morning.
All bars were great, pours were usually 'heavy' and not watered down.
Pools could use more shade to keep out of the wicked sun.
Entertainment was so-so. Dance acts were not choreographed well, bands were good, DJ's played their music too loud.
The Tamarijn Resort (part of the grounds), is a 10 minute walk, a shuttle is available. The lobby/pool bar there was large and had more food menu items. There were more shops to peruse. There is no beach (it is all rocks).
Other notes -
Checkin/out was very efficient. Bell service very good. Concierge quite helpful. We stayed on site (except to explore the nearby casino and shops) but there are many excursions available and taxis to take you to town if you so desire.
I would return.
Best vacation ever, thank you divi all inclusive.

This has got to be the worst all-inclusive experience ever, and I have been to many over the years. We booked a 4-night stay starting on 8/30 and booked one of the most expensive rooms (#602 - Oceanfront Lanai/Balcony). Room wasn't ready until 4pm, dirty, no easy to way to charge anything and worst of all the people here are rude.
