“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We spent Fall Break at the Divi Golf Villas with our 3 children (14, 12, and 8). We chose the all inclusive option which was great for me, no cooking for an entire week! Compared to other all-inclusive resorts, we found this to be very affordable. That being said, this is not a 5 star resort but very nice and clean for the price. The grounds were beautiful with plenty of options for dining. It was a short walk or shuttle ride to the beach. We have traveled to several islands and this was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Clear turquoise water with powdery white sand. The staff and locals were all friendly. We felt safe on and off the resort. There were plenty of options for activities but you have to do a little research to find the when, where and how. There is a rock climbing wall on certain days, snorkel equipment can be borrowed and a wind surfing clinic is offered if weather permits. There are time shares for sale here, but we never felt pressured to hear a sales pitch.

Room - We were on the second floor over-looking the infinity pool and golf course. Our 1 bedroom suite was slightly "worn" but spacious with full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, and flat screen TV's. Daily maid service was also included. The first floor rooms walk out to the pool, which I would have preferred since there is no elevator.

Restaurants - Our favorites were the SeaBreeze (Buffet Breakfast) the Sandpiper Bar (Lunch on the beach) and the Red Parrot or Mulligan's for dinner. Room service is not included in the all inclusive price.

Overall - I would stay at the Golf Villas again. The staff from housekeeping to management was always friendly, helpful and prompt. Aruba is beautiful. The airport is modern and easy to navigate. We went to the shops in Oranjestad and the newer "high rise area" with our children and felt safe and welcomed by the locals.

Room Tip: First floor facing the infinity pool.

We actually stayed at the Divi Village this time which is apart of the Divi Village Golf, but on the right side when you enter the property....It definitely wasn't the same as our previous units on the Golf side thats for sure. It was clean, but the kitchen didn't have a dishwasher or oven...and seemed limited on supplies...it felt like things were missing from the basic kitchen supplies.... We had alot of problems with our fridge....we called twice because it simply wasn't keeping cold....it was quite disappointing to have our lettuce and strawberries soften and go bad....And it just meant our food wouldn't stay cold, like a fridge should do....Our toilet plugged a few times, and we most of the channels on the TV were fuzzy and while we didn't spend alot time watching TV...its nice to keep up with news late at night or super early in the morning.

The good parts were the location to the beach and the overall resort amenities. The beach is very nicely maintained... We always found loungers at the pool, we always were able to exchange our towels when we needed to, and I was able to make use of the gym, its small, but had what i needed....The oceanview bar had a daily happy hour...a great way to enjoy the sunset :)

Our was alot closer to the beach then in previous units we had....and simply love spending our time in Aruba and its why we keep going back to the Divi...this is in fact our 4th time at this property....we would go back, but hopefully this was all just coincidence because we had an amazing week!

It was our 3rd trip to Aruba and most memorable thanks to Divi. We felt like it's our vacation home, booked with Divi Dutch village -run of the house, but when we checked in got upgraded to one bedroom at The Divi Golf and Beach which was awesome. Staff at front desk was super courteous, I think girl's name-Ismiralda was very sweet and professional. We didn't dine on Divi property, can't say anything about restaurants ,mostly cooked home and went out twice. House-keeping staff was also super nice and efficient, thank you all for your hard work.Rented a car from Hertz($30 a day) at the airport-very smooth transaction, then in 3 days dropped it off right at the Divi's main office, no hustle at all. Super market right next to resort, produce was mostly from South America and find it better quality than in North-east of US. We drove around the island for 3 days ,saw all landmarks, car of course makes huge difference. No dumb parking regulations, stop and park anywhere you want, Manchebo beach is one of my favorite, downtown of Oranjestad is also within walking distance, we love to walk in Aruba, well another great experience with Aruba thanks to Divi. I didn't understand those negative reviews, I think these people just miserable and negative in general, highly recommend this property!

Room Tip: Take a chance with "Run of the house"

This was our first time to Aruba and we had a studio unit at the Divi Dutch. The room was extremely clean and offered a small kitchen, nice table for four, large bathroom, walk-in closet, safe, living room area, king-size bed, and a patio overlooking the pool. The maids were efficent and kept the room sparkling daily. The bathroom offered a hair dryer along with an endless supply of lotion, soap, shampoo, and shower gel. Each building has an ice maker and the kitchens are equiped with pots, pans, silverware and cooking utensils, dishes, blenders, ice buckets, toasters, coffee maker, microwave, 4-burner stove top, full-size fridge, and dish soap.

The resort is directly on the beach plus offers several swimming pools, a climbing wall, several restaurants and bars, and the grocery store is located 2 blocks away.

I highly recommend this as a convenient, safe, and fun place to stay.

Can't imagine anyone having a problem here. We (wife, kids, and I) had a 2 bedroom on ground floor and it was outstanding!!! Let me say it again OUTSTANDING! Location was excellent, close to beach, high-rise and downtown. Grounds were very clean. Rooms were spotless, including shower and bathroom. Not all-inclusive and that is fine. Close to supermarket so budget-conscious families can really save money by eating in. Everything needed (except fry pan) was available in kitchen.

Room Tip: You don't have to rent car....taxis are available. Everything is about 10% more than the states...

We will never stay in any of the Divi's again thanks to this resort. Our room was on the 2nd floor, no elevator with our golf bags and luggage. Our room had MOLD in the shower, in the bathroom, and in the sleeping room on the ceiling. We asked them to move us and they told us they didn't have another room available. The glasses/silverware they provide you with was dirty. It was disgusting and I can't believe we spent 2 nights here. NEVER AGAIN!!

The Divi Golf Village was a great resort. The unit was a large one bedroom with its own washer/dryer. We were on the third floor which gave us access to a hot tub and a gas grill for our personal use. The unit was clean and welcoming. The staff at the resort were always very helpful and knowledgeable.
