Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I went to Aruba for the first time this April and decided on this hotel because it had multiple restaurant options and activities. My top three favorite restaurants were Red Parrot at the divi, paparazzi and palm grill both at tamarijn. I recommend making all of your dinner reservations as soon as you arrive as they get booked quickly. The nightly entertainment was surprisingly good at both hotels. At night the divi usually has a dj and fun for dancing. During the day the tamarijn usually has a dj and pool side games which is fun. The weather was perfect despite the forecast showed wind and no sun it was sunny everyday with wind but the perfect amount. They also has a good variety of alcohol and not all bottom shelf like some all inclusive. I absolutely loved this place and plan to come back soon! Also I recommend going on the catamaran snorkeling booze cruise.

We had 2 very small issues. After calling front desk, staff came immediately to correct problem. Was fixed the first time. Food was great. Could not ask for a more peaceful place. Can’t wait to go back.

I stayed at the Tamarijn for a week in March with my daughter and two young grandsons; we enjoyed every moment of it. The weather couldn’t have been better and the breeze kept the heat down and the bugs away. Being able to take a shuttle to the Divi pools and restaurants was a big plus. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to Aruba and the Tamarijn were it not for the nightmare of getting to the United terminal and checking in. The crowds became a dangerous situation and the revolving door didn’t stop even when my suitcase and leg were partially wedged in it. There was no way to get into the terminal safely because of the number of people blocking the entrance. It took three hours to get to the plane.

Like the quiet down by the end, see the cruise ships coming in and going out. Very nice that the Divi can be used with the Tamarign Been there 2 times know and planning to go back again and again! with the grandkids and families

Was a great time! Can’t wait to go back. So beautiful

The hotel is right on the beach. The food is quite good with several choices at the Tamarijn and the DIVI property next door. Lots of food and drinks. Since we aren't big eaters and drinkers, not sure an all-inclusive is worth it for us, but enjoyed it anyway

Staff sells the resort. Friendly, happy, and respectful. Resort clean, comfortable. Plenty to do or not do. Lots of beach for everyone.

Our room was right on the beach, which more than made up for the negatives. Our bed was like a cheap air mattress. The hotel room was small. Overall, the staff was good, the female staff were exceptional.. There was only one bartender that we thought was rude. We loved our location, and the fact that we were able to use all of the amenities at the sister resort, which was within walking distance. Even though there were a few negatives, we will definitely stay at this resort the next time we go to Aruba. It has the best lication on the island!

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
