Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was our fifth time staying at Tamarijn. We always find our stay relaxing, enjoyable and the staff friendly and efficient.

We had originally booked our favorite hotel in St. Martin, but it was significantly damaged in the fall hurricanes as was the rest of the island. We took Orbitz trip insurance and rebooked Aruba without penalty. Best I can say is we'd probably go back to the Tamarijn All Inclusive rather than St. Martin in the foreseeable future. We wanted a first floor room, and the hotel could do that. We were within 50 feet of the breakers. The food service was better than expected, especially with 6 all-inclusive restaurants on the property. The buffets were well done too, with nothing lacking. Sunday brunch included campaign and smoked salmon. We rented a small car through Orbitz with Orbitz insurance and saw much of the rest of the island. After that is done once, there is little reason to rent a car. Do taxi from the airport and maybe take a tour. Watersports equipment was included, including a sailboat kayaks, snorkel stuff, etc. There is plenty of good beach, with shade and chairs at no cost. There is enough beach to allow one to pick a bouncy surf to ride (I lost a pair of cheap sunglasses) or a quiet beach. Good WiFi coverage at no cost.

We've been here 8 times in the past 10 years and are very pleased with the upgrading that has occurred over the past year. It was so badly needed and looks amazing. Of course no one loves the noise that goes along with tearing down the Ocean View bar, shops and fitness center or the heavy equipment that bangs on the foundation and slams debris down into the dumpsters. With that said, the fitness center was relocated across the street at Divi Village which was close enough and had a fair amount of equipment. But...it all has to happen in order to make things new and improved so we can overlook these things. It seems there is a staff shortage because our waiter at the Red Parrot was running around and never came back after our food was delivered. To make things worse, the people next to us were cigarette smokers, which we don't appreciate especially when we were eating - it is repulsive. It would benefit the Divi and Tamarijn to either ban smoking in restaurants or designate a smoking area away from the tables. There was also a lack of staff/servers at the Paparazzi restaurant...we noticed the same servers who worked the breakfast buffet were still working at 8pm but hopefully they had a break in between. There is a desk by the gift shops where staff sits and trys to coerce passersby to sign up to look at timeshares which is tacky and annoying. All in all, we love the staff at Tamarijn - they remember us each year that we return and are always warm and friendly.

We had the greatest time in aruba. my wife and i cant wait to go back. The staff at the tamarijn was outstanding from the first day to the last

No complaints. Stayed all around the world and this was truely a relaxing and care free experience. Food and restaurants were superb. Would definitely return to this hotel again next year

Food was not great. Lots of flies and birds inside the buffet. Dirty dishes.

Arrived in m id afternoon. check in was a breeze. went straight to obtain dinner reservations. again, restaurants we wanted were available when we wanted. Had to each later a few nights, but it is vacation.

Lots to do, lines at main bar were long but the Bunker was easily accessible. Tamarijn used name Brand alcohol and it was always a bottomless cup. Enjoyed sun bathing on beach. I did not care for the sunbathers whom thought it was okay to sunbathe topless with children around. Only saw that a couple of days. Meals at the buffet were good...something for everyone. Only ventured off to the Divi for Mexican and Steak and shrimp dinners. I would definitely go back to this Hotel again. Views and service were Wonderful. Thank you Tamarijn for a Beautiful stay.

The convenience, hospitality, price, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to go back!!

none i dont want to dont need to say anything eles perfect

Was trully an idylic vacation. By staying in a lowrise,2 stories, you're right on the beach.You can open your slider door and the beach is right there.A little ways to walk for coffee in the morning if you're staying at the far end. But all in all it was excellent

Staff is pleasant and helpful. The rooms are right on the beach with a lovely view of the water. The buffet is very good . The liquor is name brand. Been there 8 times in the past 4 years will be returning in October

Great people working on all aspects of the hotel.

We had a wonderful time. We had 2 rooms that were connected and were clean but a little tight on space, especially the room with 2 queen beds that our 4 sons (15-23 years old) shared. Right on the beach with great views of the ocean and amazing sunsets! The staff was all super friendly, the food very good, great drinks, and generally no problem finding a chair by the pool or on the beach. We are already talking about returning to this resort in the future.

You walk out 10 steps from your room and you're on the beach. We loved just laying out and playing in the sand all day. We had access to food and drinks the whole time, even after checking out. It was a nice and relaxing stay at Tamarijn Aruba.

The staff overall were wonderful. The beach was great with crystal clear water. Food was average for all inclusive. They need to change up the buffet menu from time time. The restaurants were very good especially the red parrot. Rooms are a little tight, however clean and comfortable. I would recommend this resort for a wonderful vacation

Great resort, perfect weather. Wear Sunscreen! The Palm Grill was our favorite restaurant on the resort. great private beach. Great drinks, order the Sweet Tamarijn, not on the menus but can order anywear. Will be back soon! We rented a Harley with Aruba motorcycle tours. Our guide showed us most of the landmarks and more. Beautifull views, ride, wind.

not much activities around the pool area other than night time , not much music during the day, no room service (no food in your room), you are very much on your own to go and grab anything you want (nobody is serving you), excellent restaurants, good staff, highly recommended for the price.

We always enjoy our visit here. It is relaxing comfortable and the staff very friendly and efficient.

Food and drinks were excellent. Rooms in need of updating but clean.
