“Fantastic Hotel and Stay!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

We stayed here Feb. 15 - 22 and had a fantastic time!

The rooms are very clean and spacious. They are fully equipped with everything that you need for cooking and making your own drinks. They also have a several spots for outdoor cooking.

The pool water is perfect. In fact, if you first get into the beach, then get in the pool, the pool water feels like it's heated.

The hotel is in a great location. You are right on the beach and next to all of the other high-rise hotels and resorts. You are walking distance to all of the restaurants as well. If you want to go downtown, you'll need a car or take a taxi. I also think there is a bus that takes you downtown.

They have daily activities for adults and children and a play area.

The gym is really nice. There's no weight bench for bench pressing, but they have all of the other nautilus machines that you could possibly want.

Check-in was long, but it could just be the day that we checked in. We noticed on some days that there was no one in line at all.

This hotel has one of the better beaches - fewer rocks. If you walk to some of the other hotels on the beach, you'll see that they have lots of rocks in the water.

They have lots of nightly activities as well.

.


Also, you are about a mile or two from (what I think is) the best grocery store on the island - Superfoods. They have everything you could ever want at a grocery store and the prices are just like in the states. We shopped there often.

The German Bevarian restaurant (up the street in the direction of the high-rise hotels) is absolutely delicious!! You can't go wrong here and everything tastes so authentic.

We also went to Redfish, in the opposite direction of the high-rise hotels. I enjoyed the meal, but I didn't care for the Polenta and the fish has a all the bones in it.

The Cuban restaurant downtown, Cuba's Cooking, is good, but the menu is very limited.

We also ate at Tony Romas and Senior Frogs - typical fare, but it was good.

For breakfast we tried the Dutch Pancake House, downtown, and enjoyed it.

If you want souvenirs, you'll get the best bargain downtown where you see the vendors over by the shopping area.

We ate at the local restaurant on the Divi property and enjoyed the food.

We have been travelling to Aruba annually for 20+ years and used to stay at our timeshare at Playa Linda. We still own there (and rent the unit out) but we purchased at Divi Phoenix in the new beach towers 3 years ago and are so happy we did.

We enjoy all the facilities and love our one-bedroom unit. Having the second full bath makes bringing guests comfortable. We enjoy the fun atmosphere of the Phoenix, the entertainment and the casual dining at Pure Beach and more formal dining at Pure Ocean. The entertainment at Pure Beach is fun, nights with live entertainment and karaoke. The Manager's party on Monday is also a fun way to get together with other guests.

The beach at the Phoenix is the big improvement to our former location at Playa Linda being less congested. The Phoenix is the first highrise hotel on Palm Beach and is removed from the chaos of central Palm Beach but still a short walk away from the shopping, dining and action. We really like the new system implemented where you go down at 7:00 a.m. to reserve a palapa. At Playa Linda, it got ridiculous with people getting up in the middle of the night (3am) to get a palapa, so if you went down at a sane hour, you were lucky to get one. Who wants to spend their vacation getting up in the middle of the night?!!

The free WiFi provided is another welcome improvement.

We have increased our Aruba trips to twice a year since purchasing at the Phoenix, our annual January trip and now a second September trip. We look forward to our next stay at our new home away from home.

We have been coming to Aruba for ten years now. First doing the hotel drill of paying very exorbitant rates, dealing with crowded beaches, ridiculous airfares on short notice, all to get a week in the sun during the peak periods. That changed four years ago when we purchased our first two weeks at Divi Phoenix. Now we find that we are afflicted with the "Aruba disease, which only gets worse by making you want more and more time there", so this year we added two more weeks. Divi Phoenix is the first of the High Rises you encounter when driving from the Airport towards Palm Beach. The things we love about it include: it is smallish (244 rooms), all rooms have balconies and have either full or large ocean views, its two restaurants serve very fine food, there are numerous pools (never crowded), a huge expanse of beach with an ample number of plalapas, the staff is friendly and accommodating. The best part for us, as it is the first high rise, it is away from the congestion of the strip and the area is a bit secluded, this may not work for someone who is interested in the hustle and bustle of the strip. We enjoy the privacy, seclusion and non-crowding so for us it works

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view of the ocean.

My us and and I bought a timeshare here two years ago. Though I do feel a bit swindled (lots of provisions they didn't mention during the sales pitch) the property is very nice. We are in the newest building.
The rooms are spacious,my is there is a mildew smell but that's been my experience with every place on this island. The kitchen are is decent, but there's no oven. That makes cooking kind limited.
The poolside is very nice. With the exception of the lizard things. I wish they would do a better job of chasing them off. You can only guarantee a seat before 10am. The beach is even more difficult.
Restaurants aren't bad. But I can't eat there all 7 days just cause I would get sick of it.
They need more entertainment, usually there's only one or two nights a week where guests can let loose at night.
The gym is ok. The treadmills are weird/European. The overall location isn't bad. Just A 10 min walk to a small downtown area.
Overall, I'm happy, but there are a few things I would change.

Room Tip: Stay in the new building if you can.

We have been a part of divi family in Aruba for many many years. We never have a bad thing to say until now. Yes mostly everything is still great BUT now this vacation started to feel like having to go to work. Instead of sleeping in and relaxing, we have to be up by 5am to get on line by the towel hut so we can get ourselves a hut with shade on the beach. Please note towel hit opens at 7am and at 5 am there is already a line of 20 people. If you don't go that early you WILL NOT be able to have shade. After speaking to numerous other time share holders, many of us have decided that if this will continue we will stop coming to divi due to this severe disappointment. If the staff reads this review then please do something about this because this no longer feels like a vacation
