    Tamarijn resort was the perfect spot for a three generation family vacation. There were so many food options, beverages and activities throughout the week. The nice thing is that Divi Aruba, the sister resort is also an option for daily food and activities. The staff at both places was friendly and everything was very clean. At Tamarijn, every room is ocean front and is steps from the beach. We will be returning to Tamarijn/Divi

    Great All Inclusive With Some Limitations

    Our vacation at this all-inclusive resort was from 11/Feb/2020 to 18/Feb/2020. Overall, we were very impressed with this resort from the moment we checked-in until check-out. The staff was always friendly, approachable and helpful, if you required it. Our room, located in Building 25, was at the very end of the resort which involved long walks to and from various restaurants located near the lobby area. The room itself was smallish and dated but clean with an oceanfront view as advertised - so really, no complaints. Housekeeping was always great. As I mentioned above, our room was at the very end of the resort and my spouse recently developed difficulties walking long distances. Thankfully, the resort has a shuttle service that will pick up and drop off at your building location. There was only one pool available at the Tamarijn. It was located near the lobby area and as I had mentioned a long walk if you are situated near Building 25. This was one of the limitations I refer to in my title. As well, if you are on the beach near Building 25, it was again a long walk for an alcoholic beverage. Perhaps another outdoor bar located round Building 25 would be useful. The specialty restaurants were all amazing. The food served was delicious and the service excellent at both the Tamarijn and the Divi All Inclusive. We did all of the specialty restaurants (Ginger, Red Parrot, PureLime and Palm Grille). We were never disappointed. Finally, I would replace the Mixpresso machines with real coffee machines. The one in our room worked sporadically with mixed results. Perhaps adding a stocked bar fridge (included in the cost) to each room would also be useful due to the lack of outdoor bars down near Building 25. The price was right, the beach and weather were great, and so, I would have no problems recommending this resort.

    The first 2 years we stayed at the Divi All Inclusive. This is our first time at the Divi Tamarijn. We are having a lovely experience and there is literally nothing to complain about. After thinking hard I could only come up with that the rooms are small and a little run down. However, we knew that going in. The beach is amazing. The staff is great. It is clean. Food is really good (above average) for an all inclusive (and we have stayed at 15+). And.....the weather is beautiful, of course! Compared to the Divi All inclusive, the rooms are slightly larger there. All the same amenities. The Tamarijn is more spread out but you get ocean front rooms as an offset.

    Relaxing & Easy

    This was an easy and relaxed trip for our family. We almost exclusively stayed on resort/sister resort aside from a brief shopping trip, snorkel trip, and tour of the aloe farm. The weather is perfect! Windy but nice. Our kids loved the beaches and pool. We borrowed kayaks one day too. Food was fine. The buffet had enough choices to satisfy many tastes. European and american offerings at breakfast. At any meal time you can have things made to order at counters. The kids loved raiding the ice cream box. Be sure to book dinner reservations. We did but often had to take late meals to go to the places we wanted. Over all it was a relaxing, sunny vacation that we all enjoyed.

    Stolen Property

    The resort is awesome. Right on the beach, and pretty decent food. However, one of the cleaners stole a bottle of my expensive cologne from the bathroom while we were on the beach. Also, the entertainment is seriously lacking. If I go back again, I would like to stay at this resort, but hang out on Palm beach for entertainment. They don't even have a swim up bar at this resort. Contacted the resort about the stolen property, but no response. I won't knock the whole resort because of one bad apple, but they do need to know that they have employees that are stealing property. Review would have been much better if they handled my complaint.
