Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our first time in Aruba and it was great. Nice hotel, nice people, nice transit systems, nice beaches. always 84 +/- 3 degrees. always breezy 14 mph +/- 4. Not humid like most islands, and it was the rainy season, we had one washout day and two days with brief rain. (out of 13 days).

friendly staff and clean and comfortable facilities

The Divi Village Golf & Beach resort is conveniently located along a strip of other resorts. Although I didn't golf, the course looked great and was very active each day. My condo was very spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff were all very welcoming and accommodating during my stay. Overall, I found the value for the money was very good. Friends of mine were staying at another resorts just a short walking distance away and we all had a chance to check-out each other's resorts and everyone was quite impressed with the Divi and especially liked the pool/bar area.

We were given the "Pen House" suite with two levels, 2 balconies and 1 1/2 bath with Caribbean Sea views ( I loved the view). Everything worked well in the room. Access to use neighboring properties within walking distance or catch a ride on the shuttle.The resort is very nice, great location across the street from the beach. Sandra our housekeeper for 2 days was excellent, she took care of us. We tip housekeeping daily. For some reason this property did not have condiments in the rooms (no sugar, coffee, tea or paper towels) Not a real true deal breaker, since we had the view and I am a BEACH BUM!!! Overall, I had a blast in Aruba. Yes, I plan to visit the island again. Amazing time, beautiful island and great local restaurants.

Staff not too friendly Room smelled mufty Tub had mold and bottom fell off as u showered Dresser falling apart Never any wash cloths Room keys never worked Water was shut off for couple of hours Lights went out 1 night 3rd floor, no elevators

we went for the Soul Beach Festival. We were in a perfect location, short bus ride to anywhere. Or a nice walk if you like. Beaches were BEAUTIFUL!! Rooms all had kitchens so you can cook if you like or plenty of great restaurants.

I stayed here with my two year old and our husband. My parents stayed in another room. Our room was right next to the bar and pool area. The beach was a quick walk across the street. I have seen a few reviews in regards to the employees. I can certainly agree there are quite a few that did not want to be there. They looked and acted quite miserably. But there were also many employees that went out of their way for us so they are not all bad. The room was very clean. Looked like it had been done over recently so we lucked out there. The food was definitely pricey if you eat at the hotel. In my opinion it is not worth the price but we paid purely for convenience. Traveling around with the two year old was not the easiest. Overall I would recommend this hotel. It met all of our expectations.

I have a mix experience with the staff at Divi. Some are very nice and is very willing to help but there were a few that was not so helpful. But my major problem with the hotel is how stale the room smell. The wifi doesn't work and the lighting is so dark. I do love that there is a patio that we can sit outside and enjoy the breeze. I guess that's why I am giving it a 3 bc I've been to a resort with 4 rating and it was much cleaner and more modern for the same price as this resort. My mom and I make the best of it regardless. We enjoyed Aruba with our planned activities but the resort didn't really give us a satisfying experience.

The room is bigger than we expected. It even had kitchen. There was a lot of amminities which we regretted not utilizing because we're always outside. The hotel is close to downtown and the strip.

Hotel beach is right on the road. Noisy AC and refrigerator in room. Staff not particularly helpful resolving problems. Our room flooded in the rain as the outside patio floor and the entrance hallway floor both slope TOWARD the room. Seems like the builder didn't own a level or understand that water runs downhill. I recommend this resort only if you are able to reserve a room in one of the newer buildings and prefer staying around a pool rather than a beach. There are better options in Aruba.

The food was average, but extremely overpriced. We often ate away from this facility. The "all inclusive" offered to us was also overpriced, and we declined. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Probably would choose a different facility next time.

We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite - pool & golf landscape view... great view & the rooms were very large & spacious & comfortable. The room had a living room with 1 king size bed, attached bathroom, a fully functional kitchen with granite countertops, microwave, oven, dishwasher & cooking utensils, spatulas, silverware (fork/spoons), dish detergent & also a washer dryer for laundry which was amazing (you buy your own laundry detergent). Divi resort is opposite a beach front, also very close to eagle beach & a shopping plaza where you have a subway (sandwiches), dunkin donuts, basking robins, few restaurants & it's also close to 'Superfoods' grocery store. My recommendation is to definitely get a rental car (ideally a 4x4 if you plan on seeing Arikok national park) or else you can get one of those mini cars as it's easier to explore the island by yourself rather than take those expensive tours. It's a small island so you can't get lost and if you have a map you can explore all the scenic points & landmarks/attractions on your own. We did just one tour & that was the de palm Island tour which was very very relaxing as it was all inclusive (breakfast, lunch & snacks) with snorkeling (includes gear) ,zip lining, banana boat ride, etc. Money well spent!! All in all Divi was a great resort with great service & Good amenities.

Nice hotel. Rooms were spacious and well equipped. Showing some signs of age. Pool could have been a little cleaner.

IVE STAYED AT MANY DIVI RESORTS AND HAVE YET TO BE DISSAPOINTED. BEST LUNCH WRAPS IN ARUBA AT THEIR BAR IN THE MIDDLE ON THE GOLF SIDE. I HAD THE ONE BEDROOM SUITE. HUGE ROOM. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Room was very nice, plenty of space. Property was very large and well kept. Walk out to beach across the street.

The suites were nice, as was the infinity pool with swim- up bar overlooking the golf course. There were other pools on site, but this was the biggest and best for all ages. Although Aruba claims to be a happy, friendly island, we were disappointed that the majority of employees at Divi were not friendly. The young bellman dropped us off at our building and left my 70 year old boyfriend (who has heart disease) to carry our heavy suitcase up the three flights of stairs (after we gave him a tip) which was very exerting. The weather was great everyday, about 88 degrees and no rain, which is the norm there. However, it is quite windy 24/7. A calm day seems to be winds at 25 mph. There aren't a lot of things to do in the immediate area, and it isn't a partying place, if that is what you are into. We enjoyed the restaurants at Divi Village but were interested in trying one of the nearby All Inclusive Divi properties one day (which is encouraged), but they make it difficult to do... You have to get an employee's attention in the restaurant to give you a menu, decide exactly what you want to order, go to the reception area and prepay, then return to the restaurant to get a table.

Overall the hotel is great, the grounds are excellent, very well kept, the staff was polite and helpful. The rooms are spacious but probably need a bit renovation. The beach is wonderful and just across the street, was never crowded and had chairs for everyone. Breakfast buffet has choices but was the same everyday. There is also no elevator, for us was ok, but I'm not sure for families traveling with kids. We also tried Mulligans restaurant and it was fabulous, loved the Carribean Mac 'n Cheese

Stayed here for 3 days and still waiting for my extra towels to be delivered I requested from the first day (requires manager approval, which I guess was denied). Staff is extremely slow at everything. Overall it was a nice property that is being renovated.

We did an all inclusive and think that's the way to go at the Divi Golf with 7 restaurants and wonderful pools. Villa's are being remodeled and think it'll only get better! Loved the Sunset Cruise on the catamaran and will do on every trip there!

We had so much fun on our honeymoon. The golf resort and surrounding resorts we had access to as part of our all inclusive plan were gorgeous and amazing. We drank, ate and got as much sun as possible.
