Divi Aruba Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Staff, room, beach, pool = Perfect. We've been to Aruba about 8-9 times with the first at the Phoenix and it didn't disappoint. We had everything imaginable including two bathrooms, full kitchenette, lovely dining and living room and one bedroom. Balcony was a plus overlooking the ocean and pools. Best Aruba vacation EVER! Can't wait to go back.
Three reasons why I chose this resort. First, Bucuti is an adults only resort and we have a 2 yr old son. Two, Manchebo Beach didn't have availability. Lastly, this resort is far enough from the rest of the resorts in Palm Beach and less iguanas.I saw this resort in 2012 when our friend stayed here. The place is decent but you can tell it's seen better days. The furnitures are falling apart and you can see stains on cushions.Service - people are friendly enough but I don't see anyone go above and beyond to provide you the best experience. They mentioned the timeshare once when we checked in which is great. I've been to a resort in Dominican Republic where they follow you everywhere and I was ready to yell at them. When we checked in they said that the room is not ready since check in time is 4pm. They gave us a buzzer and it was past 4 but it didn't work or maybe they forgot to call us. We had to go at the reception area to follow up.They do not provide pool/beach service. You need to order food/drinks at the restaurant and have it "to go". Food & Drinks - We ate at Pure Beach for the most part. We had lunch as soon as we arrived. I had the mahi-mahi tacos. It was fresh and juicy. The rest of the food is nothing extraordinary. They use cheap (local) alcohol for their drinks. I'm not thrilled that they add 15% gratuity on anything you order. We do tip 20% on food but we tip $1 per drink we order. If you are getting 3 drinks at $30 - do the math.Beach - it's pretty clean except for some seaweed. I like the fact that the water is warm and the sand is very fine. Cleanliness - The jacuzzi tub in our bathroom has orange grime around the rims which is an indication that it needs a good scrub. Our room also has a stinky scent as soon as you walk in the room. I can't describe the smell-maybe it's like mold/stale air.Entertainment - I was pretty surprised that they provided some type of entertainment (steel pan music, band, etc). They had the welcome cocktail party on Mondays. They have bingo at 2 pm every day. They had performers during the rest of the week. Two comments/suggestions I have: I wish they have a hook close to the shower. I had to walk all the way to the door to get my towel after showering. I was cold as soon as I stepped out of the shower.My second wish is to implement a no smoking policy. Guests smokes anywhere and since I have a child, it bothers me that we get second hand smoke. A very close friend of mine died of lung cancer.Overall, it's an average resort. As I always say, Bucuti and Tara Suites set the bar high and I haven't found a resort that compares.
The Divi Aruba Phoenix is my favorite resort on the island!!! The beautiful ocean view from your room, easy access to the beach and pool, very pleasant staff and delicious food are just a few of the amazing reasons we love to stay here!! Your vacation is a paradise when you visit the Divi Aruba Phoenix! I can't wait to come back!
This is my second time staying at the Divi Phoenix, in Aruba! The suites are amazing and the staff is excellent! Jude and Lito at the pool bar, were awesome!! The rooms were cleaned often, and very thorough! The resort was well maintained and clean! The beach is right there at the resort! Truly a great location, to vacation!
Our Suite was great! The beach was great as well as the weather.However, the breakfast at Pure Beach left a lot to be desired. Food is supposed to kept at a certain temperature to cut down on bacteria. The food was not hot at all. The sausage was very fry and the bacon was very greasy. The furniture (couches) were badly stained and worn. Also, the furniture (cushions) in the lobby is in dire need of being replaced. We love coming here. Just take a little time to upgrade.
