    This was our first trip to Aruba. Second Divi resort. We stayed at the Tamarjin and it was amazing. The room was fine, nothing spectacular but very clean. But who stays in their room anyway when you have the beach, pools everywhere, and so much to do. The food was the best we’ve had at an all inclusive resort ever. So that was amazing. Drinks were ok, but if you ordered specific it was great. The staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. I would recommend this resort to anyone and everyone. We will most definitely be back.

    Not worth it Beware!

    I'll start by saying that I have been to countless resorts on many different islands along with many cruises. This is by far the worst all inclusive resort I've ever been to. I dont know how anybody gives it more than 2 stars. Check in, one employee at the busiest time of day. She was answering phone calls while checking me in which was rude and took forever. Also, "bellhop" stood there and watched my son unload our luggage from the rental car and into his golf cart. Room, not bad but the toilet was jammed into a corner making it hard to use. Food and beverage, HUGE problem. Been in the f and b business for a long time and haven't seen such a mess in my life. Hours are spotty, bars are understaffed, food was so so at best, and pizza sauce is literally tomato soup that you'll wait a half hour for. Nothing in the fridge in the room, why bother with a fridge? When I went to the front desk and asked for the manager I was met by a "not my department" manager. Adolpho in the "Buffet area" was the star of this resort, great job! Aside from that this place is highly overrated and disappointing. I've been coming to Aruba for 30 years and made the mistake of trying something new. I asked for a handicap room for my inlaws and upon checkin was told that I didn't. So I'm a liar and there's nothing you can do to help? The correct answer is "let me see what I can do". Saw groups of employees either standing around chatting or playing on their phones. I recommend considering a new GM because it starts at the top. I've been to cheaper places in Mexico that blow this place out of the water on every level. Oh and newly remodeled just means they put lipstick on a pig, its nothing special.

    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?!!
