    I have been going to Aruba for over 27 years and we own a townhouse timeshare condo at Divi Dutch Village. It’s in the low rise area which we love, as we can walk directly into our unit and not have to wait to go up and down an elevator multiple floors to get to your room. The units have been updated (totally gutted) a few years back and are outfitted with new state of the art appliances, furniture, and totally new bathrooms and new cupboards and floors throughout. It has been like a true second home to us. Very spacious and comfortable units! The staff is all very friendly and they treat you like family! We have gotten to know many of the staff and look forward to our warm hugs welcoming us back each year! Large industrial ice machines are located at the base of each flight of outside stairs for easy access to ice 24/7. The new dedicated grilling areas at each phase of the complex are state of the art and are kept cleaned and updated daily, so if you choose to stay in and fix dinner on the grill....you has all the essentials to do so. The new pools with newer chaises are awesome! We so look forward to going to our “home away from home” each year for three glorious weeks on our One Happy Island! The complex is within walking distance of Ling and Sons IGA grocery store for shopping. There are several restaurants with a few minutes walking distance of the complex. The Divi complex has a big fleet of elongated golf cart shuttles (Panthers) to transport you to any of the Divi owned properties near by, including a steady round trip shuttle going to and from the Alhambra Casino, which is awesome. Highly recommend the Divi Dutch Village complex for individuals as well as honeymooners, groups of friends or families wanting to get away and want something much nicer and way roomier than a tiny hotel room. Full maid service daily is optional. There’s multiple updated beautiful swimming pools in the complex as well as an expansive beach area that gives you plenty of room to spread out to lounge and soak up the sun without worrying about securing a chaise that everyone is trying to grab first.....there’s room for everyone! Super great place to live while in Aruba.....you are truly in paradise at Divi Dutch Village!! Can’t wait to get back there-we’re arriving the last week of March 2020!

    Best resort we have stayed at. The resort is friendly. Very easy to get around to pools, ocean ,restaurants shopping, golf and just to walk the board walk. You have all inclusive units and none. Local shopping in town is only a short walk away or a five minute cab ride away. There are all kinds off tourists things to.

    we have been to aruba 10 times and have stayed at the divi golf and divi village many times in studios 1 bedrooms both with our children and now without but this was our first time staying at the dutch and we were very pleased with our experience. we stayed in a 1 bedroom unit it was huge everything you could need for a great condo stay with the exception of laundry in the room. the bbq area for guests had 2 huge bbqs which they scrubbed everyday and have a covered eating area if you wish, the pools are terrific and never hard to get a lounge.the resort is lite beautifully at night along with the pools making walking at night very pleasant. The beach is just a short 2 min walk from your room with palapas and loungers water cooler and ice machines readily available. the beach was clean and water was great for swimming. the size of the beach changes with the weather,and over the course of a month which is how long we stayed we watched sand come and go. but hey the hotel cant control that lol. the staff are always helpful and friendly everything is within walking distance and they have shuttles if you need them the grocery store is literally 5 min walk from hotel. we love aruba and love the low rise area at the divi

    We've been coming to the Dutch Village since 1989 and have seen innumerable changes, both good and bad over the years. The last renovation was, by far, the best upgrade to the property since its construction. As much as we hate to pay the special assessments that fund these projects, they certainly got it right this time. The totally reconstructed pools are a tremendous improvement. Great idea moving the Tiki Bar and food service to the center phase of the complex to be equally accessible to all time share owners of the Dutch Village. Shirley makes the best drinks on the island and the food is very good. Happy hour makes it quite affordable as well. Coming late in the year, there are plenty of pool cabanas available, no overcrowded conditions and plenty of room to swim. Upgraded walkways and general maintenance are a big improvement. The rooms are exceptionally maintained and the cleanest of anywhere we have been. Staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly from the front desk to the cleaning personnel. In addition, the new gym is excellent with a beautiful ocean view from the second floor and videos for certain types of workouts. it's been a few years now since the latest renovation and we continue to enjoy our "home away from home."

    This is my second review of the Divi Dutch Village as we were here last year also in the last week of January. The resort is as beautiful as ever, as the grounds are continually cared for. The three pools are well kept also. there are plenty of lounges available . We chose the all-inclusive plan and love it . All the restaurants are very good the the bars are great too. Special shout out to Jorge a bartender at the Tamarijn bars. He was so great and we looked forward to seeing him each day!! The room we had was a One bed room suite that is so spacious. The room was great with an eat in kitchen living room and dining room. Also the house keeping was very good and our rooms were always done by noon time. The checkin was fast and the bellhop took our luggage right to our room. All in another perfect week at the Divi Dutch Village. We will be returning again next January, can't wait!
