We stayed here for 14 days for our honeymoon in June 2012 - what a place to stay for a honeymoon. The best way to describe this place is paradise. We have never been to the carabian before but were blown away by this place.
The resort is in a very quiet area with a perfect beach & stunning views from our oceanview room - the beach was very quiet and there were always sunbeds available. The pool area is also very well done.
The rooms were no 5* and were quite basic but what we paid for here was the location and the views and peace and tranquility.
The food was very good - a large choice of resturants - not the best I have ever had but plenty of choice. The pizzas which were available all day everyday were great. The windows on aruba resturant was fantastic - those staying in the divi only have to pay a small supplement to go.
The divi is part of a large resort - we visited the tajmarin which was more family based than the divi which seemed to be more for couples and we felt the divi was more up market. A few of the resturants are at the tajmarin though so it is worth visiting. We aslo had a candle lit dinner at the phoenix which was lovely and was part of the honeymoon pacakge.
The drinks and cocktails are fantastic as are the bar staff who were always more than attentive and often bought drinks to our tables without even having to ask.
The entertainment is low key but was what we wanted for our honeymoon.
Some people got to see turtles hatching whilst we were there - unfortunatly we missed this as we were eating dinner inside! The wildwife is here is fantastic.
We had a few trips out to the high rises and downtown - both of which were great but we were so happy to come back to the low rises which was much more peaceful.
I would say that if your wanting 5* accomodation this hotel is probably not for you but if you want stunning views and peace and tranquility with excellent service and choice of things to do this is definatley the place to stay.
We had such a great honeymoon and will never forget it - could not recommend this destination enough to others! We will definately be returning!
