Tamarijn Aruba Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Even though resort was older, it was updated in the rooms. The pool could have been bigger, but every room is on the ocean. You have excess to sister resort next door via a golf cart shuttle that runs every few minutes. Food was all good at both resorts and the service was all friendly.
Tamarijn is a place to enjoy sun , sand and sea !Peaceful , relaxing. not luxury. Very close to the airport. Transfer smooth provided by De Palm Tours. Taxis are very good and safe. Rates are $9 to the Mall and $21 to the airport. The best restaurant is Red Parrot . Larry Lake is an excellent singer unfortunately he performs only Saturdays at Pelican Bar. Wish everybody a great vacation !
The Tamarijn resort was all I had hoped for and more. Visited during March and the resort was never too crowded. There were plenty of beach chairs to choose from and never any long lines at the buffet. Staff very friendly and food was good. Top shelf liquor and all unlimited at this all inclusive. Casual, laid back atmosphere. Took out a kayak and didn't have to sign our life away or have a time limit. Each room is beachview and all include either a balcony or walk out slider door. We liked being on the second floor but both seemed like great locations. If you are looking to be near the action (pool, bar, buffet, shops) then highly suggest staying in buildings 12, 13, 14, or 15. We stayed in 15 and loved how quick we could get from our room to the bar. If you are looking for a more quiet vibe then i suggest staying in buildings 18 onward. It will be about an 8 minute walk to the center of the resort. Best restaurant there is the Asian restaurant, Ginger. Excellent food. All restaurants allow for ordering as much food as your heart desires! Apps, meals, desserts, coffee, etc. We did one excursion that cost extra, the Kukoo Kumuku. Fun nighttime bus ride that took us bar hopping and showed us the downtown. Cannot think of one bad thing to say about this place! If looking for a casual, laid back beach vacation, definitley visit the Tamarijn.
Just returned from our first trip to Aruba (and hopefully not our last) where we stayed at the Divi Tamarijn. What a great trip! I can’t understand some of these negative reviews especially about it being dirty. The place was very clean and was kept up throughout the day. While the rooms were clean they could be a little larger (not that we came here to stay in the room), the spectacular view from the patio more than made up for that. The accommodations were great! The beautiful beach is about 25 feet from the rooms, and there were plenty of lounges available. Check-in on Thursday took a bit too long with only two working the desk but Josie checked us in and was very patient with our questions and problems. Our biggest problem was that there was no coffee pot in the room. My husband, who has COPD and can’t walk too long at a time, gets up between 4 and 5 am and can’t wait until 7 am for a cup of coffee. Josie managed to find us a coffee pot and arranged for the bellman to take us to buy some coffee for the next morning. Divi Aruba All Inclusive is part of the whole package and is within walking distance or you can take the free shuttles which will pick you up from your room and take you to from one resort to another as well as the Alhambra Casino. The Concierge Desk is helpful for booking dinner reservations (at the several sit down restaurants on both properties), or excursions. Iris was so helpful and kind!Our favorite hangout was the Pizza per Tutti Snack Bar or Coconuts Bar with a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea and the best bartenders serving the best drinks!The only con I had was that they don't provide bottled water in the rooms and the small cube refrigerator was not very cold. Our room was the next to last so it was a long walk to the main area for drinks if we wanted to hang at the beach by our room.
First time staying here Check in very fast and efficient, checked in early they held bags so we could start our vacation. Room was very comfortable set AC to 70 was quite comfortable. Buffet food was excellent, wait staff in that area very polite and accommodating. Made reservations for specialty restaurants as we were a group of 10. Red Parrot was excellent, among best steak I've ever had. Ordered medium rare came out hot, and perfect. Other specialty restaurants were good. Drinks at the bars were very good although at times some of the bartenders seemed overwhelmed. Tuttis(spelling) bar at entrance with snacks, pizza, sandwiches, and onion rings were very good. We all had a great relaxing time. Only thing wrong was saving of the huts on the beach. People claimed them early, not enough to go around. Will definitely stay here agsin
