Tamarijn Aruba Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Every room faces the sea of this 2 story low rise paradise. The views are amazing.The sound of the sea mesmerizing. Plenty of restaurant choices, excellent food. The staff is amazing and always there to please. The Tamarijn is always my first choice.
The resort itself was nice great beachfront rooms! The rooms themselves could use a bit of updating. The staff was friendly and helpful! They were also very knowledgeable about the area. I wish the concierge told you more about non palm island excursion offerings. The best part was being able to go to the divi for their restaurants and shows. The divi's buffet was a bit better quality. We very much enjoyed the nightly shows offered at both resorts they were so fun! The only other complaint was the "snacks" offered after hours of the restaurants. They were out of pizza the whole time we were there and the fries ad popcorn seemed to be sitting a while.
We stayed at hotel Divi Tamarijn Aruba All inclusive 31 of dec 2016 to 14 of Jan 2017.Hotel 3/5Hotel is located next to the beach which is very nice. This gives all rooms a view over the turquoise Caribbean Sea. An you'd be amazed by the turquoise water!Hotel rooms are in need of renovations. The doors lack of isolation makes it quite noisy from the outside. And when the rain was pouring down we'd find water inside our room.Food 4/5Comfort food it is!We ate at every restaurant at both Divi resorts.Every restaurant offers a cuisine of their own. There's pretty much the same type of food at all of the restaurants. If there's beef on the menu there's the same type of beef you'll see everywhere, same goes with fish, chicken, salad etc.. just different ways in cooking style.With this said I would like to point out their buffet, which serves as good meat as the steak houses and as good pasta as the Italian restaurant. Maybe not the most pleasant environment but you'll have a lot of different good quality food to choose from.Staff 2/5If you're a big tipper you don't need to read the rest of the "Staff" part.For me tip is something I'll give when I get good service. I won't pay anyone in advance to be treated good.To be honest I've never been to a hotel with less service minded staff.I'm sure this has to do with the hotel is an "all inclusive" hotel. Salaries will still be payed no matter there's 50 or 100 guests at the restaurants or if the guest are happy with the service or not.It would be unfair to say everyone's not service minded but 95% of the staff lack the service minded attitude.When your ordering food/drinks it's hard to get their attention. While your ordering it feels as you're bothering them.You barely get a smile.Even when they put down the water can they slams it on the table.At times it almost feels as they have something against tourists.If you visit an restaurant outside of the hotel area you'll see a big difference..BIG minus!Surroundings 4/5The surroundings are very nice, beaches are great and you'll see it takes a lot of effort to keep up the nice standard of the hotels surroundings.Overall 3/5.
I have stayed at the Tamaryn four times and would gladly go back there. It is not a high rise, which I hate. It is a two story with all rooms looking out on the water. They don't charge extra for that either like the big hotels. The rooms are clean and have all the amenities, not fancy but perfectly adequate. The sliding glass doors on the first floor open up to a small patio and then a very short 500 feet you are in the water. Perfect!!
The most relaxing vacation we have ever enjoyed. Sit on the beach, read and visit or just relax. When you get hot take a swim, the ocean is just a few steps from your chaise. When you are hungry there is always something delicious that will appeal to you. Lots of variety and well-prepared.Thirsty, head to the bar(s) for a drink. Rooms are not fancy but contain everything you need and are impecably clean, not that you'll be spending much time in your room. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. They genuinely seem to enjoy what they do. Totally understandable why staff have such longevity at the resort and why so many people return year after year.
