Great stay in covid time. 28% of the complex was filled, so no shortage of sunbeds or parking spaces, but far too little with normal occupancy. Beach around the corner but very narrow at Divi Dutch. Accommodation can't just buy a drink at the bar, must with tickets at the reception which is closed in Covid time. You have to go to the main complex across the road. Driving golf carts for the guests but with a band you have right of way, ridiculous! Cleaning every day, also of the pool and new towels, enough swimming pools, most restaurants only for all-inclusive guests but fine and much cheaper cooking in your own kitchen with the supermarket around the corner (all-in = $120 pp per day ). Car recommended and costs just as much ($30) per day as one taxi ride. Bicycle/ scooter/ scooter not recommended due to the danger on the road. Little entertainment (covid) could have been announced nicely in the TUI app). Center of Oranjestad is a 3 to 4 km walk but only worth it if there is a cruise ship because otherwise most of it is closed and boring. Hotel area has most restaurants but is pricey. Snorkeling is very limited in Aruba and beware of unpaved roads. Lots of buggies there flying around the corner, wrecking the island and performing dangerous antics. You can't wish for anything more for just a sun/beach/swimming pool holiday.
Perfect hotel. Perfect location. Perfect stay.

I loved the quiet intimacy of this hotel in the complex. The common area and pool had the Tiki Pool bar which served great breakfast, snacks and lunch. The pool was cleaned daily and was never crowded (unlike other pools in the complex). The staff at the bar were friendly and helpful. We spent five days at this wonderful hotel. It was a perfect week. Can’t wait to go back.
