We enjoyed our trip very much. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When in Aruba everything is slow and you feel very relaxed.
The hotel is in the process of being renovated and our room definitely needed it. The resort itself was nice and the staff was great. The floor of our room and the shower were dirty but not too bad, you could tell they didn't really care about the rooms that hadn't been renovated yet. We always had good luck getting chairs and shade, no matter what time of the day we went out. It was easily within walking distance of a large grocery (one block).
Arrived on a Tuesday, easily found the place with a rental car. 10 min from airport. Driving here is easy if you have good directional sense...the road signs beyond the main roads are non existent...but it made it fun. You can't get lost on an island 9 x 6 miles. Do partake of things like the national park and note they are not kidding, don't take a regular rental car there, 4x wheel or rent a ATV or UTV or take one of those tours. There may be 10 places to go on the island other than the beach and you should see all. Get out of car and go for walk But watch the thorns. I wore Crocks the first day and pulled no less than 5 share thorns out. Regular hiking shoes a must even for short walks off the paved roads..if you really are going for hikes. The hikes are short, the sun strong but the wind keeps you surprisingly cool. Saw feral goats, iguana's fish etc. Feb is Carnival month and we got to see the kids parade. OMG, we don't have anything remotely like this in US. I only wish I could have stayed 2 more weeks to see the full parade at the end of the month. A must see. Some units are back from ocean front and may have a pool or hot tub plus the ocean front units between them and the Ocean. but many not a bad unit there. Beautiful in side, service is excellent, people are so friendly. My package was not all inclusive so we often drove a few minutes north to score dinner....Shoot I've got no mores space...GREAT!
We loved staying here because it was right at the beach. Very clean and comfortable. Everything we requested, we received. Close to town and shops. Great place.
In the middle of a renovation, new rooms and pool look fantastic. Just a little noisy right now during these renovations at 830 in the morning.
Had great time! Hotel staff was very helpful with everything. Clean rooms.
Have stayed here a number of times. Close to the beach, though you must wear water shoes as there are rocks in the water. Good beach otherwise. Condo needs updating and minor repairs though still quite comfortable. We will return again next year.
they had trouble providing towels in the room even though one phase was closed - this leaves approximately 400 towels not accounted for - we had to dry dishes using large beach towels - this is a typical problem in Divi Dutch Village -also had problems with air conditioning in phase three resulting in room being like a meat locker [cold]
The room was clean and the property is old but well maintained. Staff could be more friendly, but was ok. It is located on the more quiet and beautiful Druif beach with some free umbrellas. You would have to go a bit early to get one. It is always windy in Aruba and it seemed like this beach is located on a side that is more protected from the wind. The hotel has few different parts and they are spread out. They have small carts with drivers that take you around. The only issue we had is that we did not do all inclusive and had problems getting drinks and food at most bars and restaurants. You would need to buy coupons from front desk. This part was frustrating. The location of the property is few miles from the strip at Palm beach and a taxi ride is short and costs $9. There you can find a lot of restaurants and bars. Overall, if you are going there to enjoy nice weather on a beautiful beach with white sand and blue water, this is a good place.
Divi Dutch is not located on the best beach, however it's 5 minutes to a nice beach. The rooms are spacious and clean. Staff members are very friendly. Restaurants on premises are very good: Ginger and Red Parrot. Supermarkets are 5 minutes walk. It is a local gem for a price.
The room was small and the inside door to the next room was not soundproof, but the room was clean. There was only one chair, so we could not even sit at the small table to eat anything.
It was our third time at Divi Dutch. Although I travelled with my husband we booked a studio room with sofa bed for additional minimal fees. It makes a big difference in a room size and and it comes with patio. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back.
I broke my foot just before our trip. They would not accommodate me in a lower (than 3rd floor, with NO elevator) room. They had rooms available that were empty our entire stay but they wanted another $800+ to accommodate me. Attitudes were uncompromising!
This trip was more than I expected. I have nothing bad to say about the hotel or the staff and accomadations .
This is our fourth stay at Divi Dutch Village. The resort is clean and the staff is friendly. Check in and check out is a little bit of a pain as it must be done at Divi Village across the street. We enjoy the quiet low rise area of Aruba and love that we are only steps away from the ocean or one of three pools.
Love the amenities of this place - everything does need updating (as they have started doing). Worst things - no bathroom vent fan (please remove the small window if you must and install custom vent fans), yellowish light bulbs causing everything to be dimly lit, and needs more electrical plugs. Seems all of Aruba uses this yellowish light bulbs, so pass the word.. In general, we loved this place. Good amenities and loved the convenience (2 blocks to a great supermarket). Aruba itself is fantastic! Loves our day trips!
The hotel was spacious, it was as described in terms of amenities but our main complaint was that it did not have elevators and the pools were not working during our stay, the hot tub was not heated. The only great thing about this hotel was the location, it was right in front of an amazing part of the beach.
The Divi group of hotels are away from busy Hotel zone but are still have great location. Beaches are clean and nice. The food is great though on expensive side. Customer service is firendly. The resort is very big so occasionally they cannot handle volume. Overall we had great time at Divi and Aruba.
We stayed at the Divi Dutch village one week in January. We did not have the all inclusive package so I can't speak of the quality of meals on the resort. We did eat at the Mulligan's and found the food to be decent. The resort is located about 10-15 min driving from downtown and 5 minutes from two large grocery stores. There is a large casino on resort territory. The rooms need renovation but are still in ok shape. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the swimming pool. There are lots of swimming pools on the property, the territory is green with palm trees and tropical plants. The atmosphere is very relaxing. I wish the resort took better care of the beach, there were lots of straws, plastic cups and particles of trash, and I did not see any one cleaning the beach. Some suites with ocean view are literally on the beach. All the guest have access to evening entertainment, we saw two shows that I thought were better than some shows we have seen at other resorts. The staff at the resort were all very pleasant and helpful. I think this resort offers good value for your money, so we would come back here.
The towel situation was real bad. Missing towels in room every day. Laundry didn't come in until after 4pm. Beach towels were not available on weekends. The maids were good but they didn't always have the tools to work with such as sheets, towels etc. there are good things too. Directly on beach. Next to supermarkets. 3 pools. Hopefully they are suppose to start remodeling.
