We stayed at the Divi Dutch Village under a time share and had the mega all-inclusive so that we could eat at any restaurants at the Tamarjin, Divi All inclusive, and Divi Golf. We had so many choices and were able to make a reservation at a different restaurant for all 6 nights! The food was delicious (our favorite was Paprazzi), the drinks and bartenders were great, and the shuttles were so accessible with such friendly drivers!
I loved how everything was walking distance. Although it is only steps away from your room, the beach at the Divi Dutch can be a little rocky, but we took a shuttle every morning to the Divi all inclusive beach and it was PERFECT. Fun entertainment at night with love music, activities at the pool during the day, and such friendly staff. I couldn't be happier with our stay and I liked how quiet the Dutch was at night for when we returned to go to bed. Our room was a king suite that was HUGE even for just 2 people! It was so clean and beautiful and has a deck overlooking a nice pool.
Having the other hotels included was such a bonus and I highly recommend doing the mega all inclusive. 10/10 would stay here again!
Nice but not Excellent

We stayed at the Divi Dutch Village. This is the non all inclusive Resort which is part of the Tamarajin All inclusive and Divi Golf Resort.
It was a bit confusing as to where you could eat and peculiar rules as well. There was a lack of information upon check in. Because we were not part of the All Inclusive and if we wanted to eat at the Tamarajin restaurants we had to buy tickets ahead of time. Also, all the bars in the Tamarajin had to be paid by credit card. They did NOT accept cash and we could NOT charge to our room because we were NOT part of the all inclusive. Yet, they are Divi Resorts!! Carrying the credit card around seemed inappropriate.
This MUST be changed!!! They need to be able to accommodate non inclusive guests the ability to charge to their room!!! After all they are all Divis!!
Its Resort 101. Did it ruin things, NO, but it was an inconvenience. Being on a Vacay should have zero inconveniences, especially something as peculiar as this.
The food was very good throughout but the buffet staff seem overwhelmed. It appeared as though they were short handed every night.
All the bars on the Divi Dutch Village were excellent!!! Fast, efficient and great bartenders. The Sea Breeze bartender, Franklin, was AWESOME!!! Friendly and working like a flawless machine making delicious drinks!!!
The COMPLEX is gorgeous and it was festive without any obnoxious drunks that can ruin VACAYs for others. Plenty to do and the staff were all friendly and efficient. It was not crowded either.
The rooms were cleaned up nicely every night and the shuttle service, multi seat, golf carts were readily available with friendly drivers.
This is a great place to stay and an EXCELLENT choice for families. Very safe too!!!
My critiques are as mentioned, lack of initial orientation, peculiar rules for the Divi Dutch guests and dinner buffet staff seemed overwhelmed due to lack of staff.
In spite of those negatives you cannot go wrong with choosing ANY of the Divi Resorts!!!
