Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Oranjestad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Rooms - We had the Studio Suite which came with a nearly full kitchen (range but no oven). We went to the grocery store on the first day (0.5 mile walk, safe neighborhood) and stocked up on lunch and breakfast foods, snacks, and alcohol. The ability to cook in room was HUGE. Cooking supplies were well kept and would even by washed and put away by the cleaning staff if we were too lazy. We had a balcony that faced west, overlooking the beach and had an awesome view of the sunset each night (other results will vary, but all of the rooms in the 6000 block should have this view). Rooms also had NY television stations, couch, and kitchen table.

Grounds/Pools - There were 3(4?) pools but we only used 2 of them. One was directly under our room and most convenient, and there was also the large infinity pool bar. The infinity pool overlooked the golf course and was amazing. There was a fully stocked bar in the water and a restaurant being added (currently under construction December 2013). There was also a very secluded pool at the way back of the resort. The grounds were spacious, well kept and very clean. The entire resort has many iguanas and other small lizards and birds. We did not use the golf course, but it looked very nice.

Food - The food was so-so. Nothing to write home about. If you wanted generic bar food the quesdillas and chicken sandwiches were fine. My g/f ordered a Cobb salad with crab meat and everything was fake. There are some "named" restaurants on the resort that I am not talking about but will have their own reviews. This was just for the bars.

Beach - The beach is actually across the street from the resort, but is an extremely short walk. It can't be more than 50 meters. The beach was very large, the shaded huts are at the very back of the beach and there are plenty of lounge chairs. Compared to some of the beaches that we saw in the High Rise hotel section, this was 10 times the size.

Service - The service was hit or miss. It very much depended on who you got. Some people at the front desk and concierge were either very rude, or simply not knowledgeable about hotel policies or features. On the other hand we dealt with some great people who knew exactly what we were asking for and helped immensely.

Surrounding Area - The immediate surrounding area has 3 other hotels that you can take advantage of (Divi Dutch, Tamarijn, and Divi Divi) and a half mile away is the Alhambra Casino. The casino was decent, table games and many slots, a few shops and some restaurants. It also had classic American fare like Dunkin Donuts and Subways. Less than a half mile from the resort was the grocery store and was a very nice walk, albeit down a somewhat busy road. The grocery store was clean and friendly and stock with both local items and American items. In all the area catered extensively to American desires.

We recently spent 8 days here and had a great time. It was recommended to us by friends that have time share there. We really enjoyed our stay. Sure, the rooms need a little touch up but not bad. We had a one bedroom condo near the infinity pool. It was very clean and more than adequate. The shower in the bedroom can be hard to get into but who cares, the shower off the kitchen is much larger and no step to get into. When traveling everyone wants a nice room of course but we travel to have fun. A room is for sleeping not to hang out in all day.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pools are well maintained and the grounds are nice.
We walked to other resorts in the area and like Divi Golf the best. Its spread out enough so all the people staying there aren't hanging in one area. We only had dinner here once and it was good. We ate at local restaurants each night.

We highly recommend Divi Golf and will stay there each time we visit Aruba.
If you stay there and all you do is complain about it, you shouldn't go to Aruba or Divi Golf.

Room Tip: The one bedroom condos are nice but if you travel as a couple the studios are much nicer

I was happily supprised by this place. We got a great deal for a week, and couldnt resist. Upon showing up we were expecting a small room away from the beach since we didnt pay that much. We were so happy to find that we had a room on the top floor with a great view over the beach and the pool (not the infinity one). I was told by everyone to get a place on the infinity pool, but I was happy not to get one. We ended up in the building closest to the beach (cant remember the name of it). The map of the place makes it seem intimidatingly big, but the paths make it quite accessable. A quick walk got us to the infinity pool, and we were much happier seeing the sunset over the beach than staring at a pool. Even though you are not "on" the beach, it was the closest to a beach I have ever been. That being said, there is a shuttle service if you dont want to walk, or it is all of 100ft across a signalized crossing of the road to get your toes into the sand. The room was great (renovated) with a big bathroom, a good kitchenette, and a great bed. Our balcony was great as well. We fully expected to get hounded by the timeshare team since we thought we got such a great deal that there had to be a catch... but they were great and we ended up going to the presentation on our ouwn accord since we were so impressed with the place. The presentation was long and not the best that I had ever seen, but not the worst either. Coming from someone who would NEVER have thought he would say this and having stayed in alot of timeshare resorts, I could see purchasing a timeshare at Divi in the near future.

Just got back from 11 days there with the all inclusive. Stayed in Birdie X near the infinity pool. We found a wonderful place. Ate most meals at Mulligans where the food and service were great. My kids loved the gatorades in cooler to leave with.

We took our first "golf" vacation. We booked Divi. We had a great room overlooking the lake and part of the course. We were really close to the clubhouse and the main pool. The beach was a short walk out the main entrance and across the street. Our room was fantastic. We had a one bedroom with a full kitchen, 2 baths, and great deck and a washer/dryer. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The gift shop on site is one of the best we found on the island and the prices are very reasonable. There are many restaurants and bars associated with Divi so charging to the room was easy and quick. They have various happy hours (2 for 1 drinks) at each bar.

My partner is an owner of a unit and always a great place to escape. They are continuing to upgrade/build onto the amenities and physical footprint. The new lobby area is attractive, the golf course and adjacent restaurants and shop are comfortable and well kept. The pools are maintained and great place to soak up the sun if you're not interested in walking across the street to Eagle Beach. The times I've been there never have had issue with any of the staff; always willing to assist in whatever way they can. Minor quibbles with inattentiveness of some of the wait staff at times, but overall good. Grounds clean and quiet; as are the units. Where they need to step up is in the maintenance of the units (specifically the older or original units). Some of the issues; badly cracked kitchen counter tops, aging appliances, drapes wearing out/pin holes, bathroom light working intermittently, hot tub area - counter top and cabinets badly worn out and damaged and need to be replaced. These are not major expenses/issues but ones that any homeowner or resort needs to stay on top of especially experiencing all the building and renovation of the grounds as mentioned earlier. This resort has many positives for us would continue to go whether partner was an owner or not.

Room Tip: Most top units come with patio and hot tub on roof....

We have been coming to the Divi (Links) Beach and Golf Resort since before it actually opened the Links portion. The people are friendly, accommodating, and remember you from year to year. Coming here is somewhat like being welcomed at a family reunion. My wife and I, kids and grandkids all love it. Great infinity pool, water slide, short walk to the beach, tennis and golfmake this something for everyone. In our opinions, the restaurants range from above average to excellent, and are all worth sampling. If you want to see smiles, feel at home and appreciated, come here. Activities personnel are engaging and fun.

Room Tip: Ask for water front or golf course view. Ask for an upgrade. Who knows??
