My husband and I just returned from a 5 day stay at the Divi resort. Overall, the resort was above average. In comparison to an all inclusive Dreams we have stayed at in the past, this was less superior.
We had a beachfront room, which was amazing because we could open our door and walk 100 feet onto the beach. The rooms were ok, and certainly could use some updating. As everyone has mentioned, you typically don't spend a lot of time in the room so we didn't really mind.
The food was mediocre. We had a horrible dinner at Paparazzi, but the dinner at Ginger was more an improvement. The pizzas at the beach bars were decent as well. If you are there, spend the money and dine at Windows on Aruba at the Golf Resort. Extraordinary food and a great view of a sunset!
The absolute best part of staying at Divi was the beach. We had decided to travel up north near all the high rise hotels during the day, and the beaches were absolutely packed! Tons of boats and tons of people surrounded the beaches. At Divi, we had the luxury of waking up at 7:30 and still being able to find a palapa to use for the day. I have stayed at resorts where you have to wake up at 5am to stake out a beach chair. Although there were people on the beach, Divi's was nowhere near as crowded and the water was much more relaxed and clearer.
If I were to return to Aruba, there appears to be more action up north but the beaches at Divi are nowhere near comparable.
