- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This was our first visit to Aruba! And won't be our last! What a beautiful Island! The weather was perfect! The scenery, oceans, birds and Iguanas, perfect!But what made our experience the best ever was staying at the Tamarign!!! What an incredible All-Inclusive! Our room was beautiful with the Ocean right there! The layout of the 2 resorts was perfect! But the staff are who made the experience the best! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! We met so many great people, staff and visitors alike! We met so many people who have been multiple times (over 15!). That says so much about the resort!We recommend it to anyone and look forward to going back one day!!! Rob Malcic and Michelle Payne
Just arrived back in blighty after a weeks stay at the Tamarijn with my partner. It was my first trip to the Caribbean too. Well it blew my socks off, it was truely amazing. Firstly as soon as we go on the bus at the airport we were checked in and given our All Inclusive wrist bands, welcome pack and our room numbers. We were then told that as soon as we arrive at the Hotel to start enjoying our holiday as our luggage would be delivered to our rooms for us. Our room was on the beach, beautiful white sand, clearest blue sea I've ever seen. Room was clean, Queen side bed, cleaned everyday, safe that was free of charge and fridge plus TV. Restaurants were good with the main restaurant being the best for me with so much choice on offer everyday too. The food was nothing short of fantastic in my opinion the best I'd ever experienced on All Inclusive anywhere. The staff from the cleaners through to the reception and concierge desk were the most polite,friendly and helpful staff anyone could ask for. The Resort was spotless and the shuttle between Tamarijn & its sister Divi was excellent too if you didn't want to walk off the fabulous food from dinner and sampling a drink at one of the other hotels bars. We stayed for a week and total chill it most certainly was, we absolutely loved it. After walking from the High Rise area of the island back to our hotel and seeing the very majestic looking Riu Palace Hotel and Marriot amongst others, witnessing the hustle and bustle that was there in the pool and bar areas, we knew we'd made the right choice for our weeks vacation. Tamarijn Aruba was absolutely amazing and very highly recommended. We'll certainly be visiting again!!! Thank you all at the Tamarijn /Divi Aruba Resort
My husband and myself have just returned from a two week stay at the Tgyamarijn and enjoyed everything about it. Okay, the room and bathroom were in need of an update but as they were clean, with a large shower cubicle, and very comfortable beds, 2 queen size, this was not really a problem. We opted for a second floor with balcony which was large and offered lovely views, although no privacy as there is only a low railing dividing all the balconies. A shame really as I am not keen relaxing with complete strangers right next to me. We requested a quiet room and were allocated 1612 which was perfect. Only a 3 or 4 minute walk to all the amenities without all the hassle and noise. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room but as we Brits like our tea we always take our travel kettle with us which worked out fine. Food is very good, staff friendly and helpful. There is a series of small and large golf buggies running continually between the Divi and the Tam for those who want it or else it is a lovely shoreline stroll of about 10 minutes between the two. Buses stop right outside the hotel for a ten minute journey into the capital or on the opposite side of the road to Eagle and Palm beach. The pool is lovely with plenty of beds and two great pool bars one of which serves hot and cold snacks. If like us, you prefer to spend the day on the lovely beach or in the warm water be prepared to get up early to reserve your space under a thatched sunshade outside the rooms, you will definitely need it as it gets very HOT. I would definitely recommend this hotel we had a wonderful time.
We had a wonderful stay at the Tamarijn in Aruba from 5/4/17 through 5/9/17. I want to begin by saying that while all the staff was helpful and friendly I made a personal connection with Diego at the bar. He just seemed to know what we wanted and made numerous helpful drink offerings for us. He saw us at various locations throughout the resort and always recognized us and asked if we needed anything. His Pina Coladas were unbelievably tasty and somehow he was able to fit more Pina Colada in the glass than the glass would normally hold. It was so thick that it defied the laws of gravity and did not spill over. The food was very good overall, however, we especially enjoyed the Palm Grill hibachi style. Not sure why the bars don't open until 11:00 a.m. as sometimes when on vacation you want to have a Bloody Mary with breakfast. Would have liked to have seen a hot tub somewhere but there were none on the property. Overall a very nice stay in a beautiful setting and we plan to return next year.
Before traveling to the Tam I had literally read every single review on here!. There were 2 adults and a teen boy. Most of what people say (good and bad) is true. But the weirdest thing that no one mentioned is the shipping lane and the oil rigs! Both visible from your room and the beach - no big deal at all, but the first thing I noticed and we commented on. The cruise ships come in right at the beach - I will add pics - like I said it's no big deal but I'm just surprised no one has ever mentioned it. ok I'll try and do this as a list to make it easier. Rooms - fine, clean, tidy, good aircon. Small bathroom but decent shower with plenty of hot water. All are on the beach and next to the sea which is amazing. The sunsets are gorgeous. Beach - great, windy - but you need the breeze because of the heat. Get up around 6 and reserve your beds under a shade. Take towel clips or buy at shop. Food - lots of choice. Restaurants are all fine and we didn't have any terrible meals at all. It's quite American so expect pancakes and 'English muffins - they're not) at breakfast and 300 ways to cook an egg. Drinks - cocktails vary! The same drink can be totally different colours from a different bar tender. Tipping - again a USA thing, as a Brit it drives me insane - wearing a bikini where am I gonna put a dollar bill. Plus I do object to paying a dollar to someone to pull me a drink. Swimming - sea can be rough, but I'm no swimmer and loved it. Take beach shoes as it can be stoney in places and beach shoes just make it more comfortable for you. Go on the free snorkel trip on bikes - Wednesday, it's a lot of fun, the staff are great. Use the bikes yourself or take the bus up to Arashi or Bocco Catalina to snorkel - it's a great day out. But if you like to snorkel do yourself a favour and book with Aruba Bob - it's amazing. Activities - use the free bikes to go into town and also visit the high rise area and eagle beach etc. Staff in the towel hut/bike hut are so rude it's brilliant - almost like a faulty towers sketch! Pool - fine for me - I prefer the sea. But it's nice for a change to lie around the pool. It gets pretty hot there as there's little breeze. On the whole did I like it? - yes. Did I have fun? Yes. Would I visit Aruba again? Probably not - I've been once and that'll do. Tried my best to do a straightforward review. It's a nice hotel and the location is great. Some staff are lovely some really aren't (I'm a typical Brit and say please and thank you at least 200 times a day on holiday) hope this review is helpful - give me the thumbs up if you like it
