We stayed at the Divi Dutch Village, part of the divi resort. We are RCI members and stayed in a timeshare suite. We requested ocean front, lower level as I can't walk up stairs as easy since I have MS. The rooms we saw online looked great. When we arrived and were given our room number and taken to our unit, we then found out it was a 3rd story room. The room was barely the size of our bedroom at home and that's including the bathroom and kitchenet. It was facing the busy highway. Building was on the oceanside. The room was very outdated. They painted over hinges and outlets, not to nit-pick. The stove was old as well. We had to beg and plead with the management/front desk employees to place us on a 1st level unit... They said no, but we kept on and late the 2nd day of our vacation, they said they had a 2nd level unit. It's better than walking up 3 since the divi dutch village has no elevators. They did not accommodate my needs for the ground level room and forget about the ocean front, they kept us facing the road and placed us near the end of the entire resort... Near absolutely nothing. The walls were so thin, we could hear our neighbors showering, watching tv, cooking... Even some conversations. They were not loud people, just thin walls. The furniture was outdated and shady at best. The shower was tight, low light. The toilet was broken. We had to hold the handle down the entire flush, every time. Now on to the grounds, for the most part it was clean, but several open drains, one was covered, sort of, with plywood and half of the hole was exposed. A child could have easily fell into the 2-3 foot hole. The beach was short, but beautiful. It's hard to mess up an Aruban beach... Except being next to the local beach where some homeless and tourist would litter and the beach was more rock/shells than sand. The beach over all was nice and there were palapas with chairs... But the beach was a good distance from the room... Again back to the first level ocean front thing again. We traded a nice amount of points for the horrible room, bad location, 2nd level room. We were charged a $10 a day tax timeshare fee that we were not made aware of until we received a bill. The pools were nice, for the most part, but small and some were dirty. The "resort" catered to the golf resort and all inclusive areas of the resort. A helpful hint for activities. Rent a car through the economy car located a hotel or 2 up the street for under $40 and tour the island. We had a toyota yaris and went every where the jeeps did without the sand in our faces and could take as much time as we wanted. The jeeps and atvs are fun but with 20+ mile an hour trade winds, a car will do.

Back to the resort, there are many different areas of the resort and that is why the ratings are all over the place, from great to horrible. Do not stay in the divi dutch village area of the resort. Worst room I've ever had with an RCI resort. I'll never stay there again. I will go to aruba, but never at a divi resort.

Have been to Aruba and stayed in a variety of locations and accommodations but when I found this place there was no turning back. Have booked our third stay here for 2015. Away from the hustle with the ability to walk or ride to everything you need. Beach and ocean is calm and not crowded. Rooms are clean and well appointed.

Room Tip: Have stayed in the golf villas and ocean view studios. The villas generally have one bedroom with laundry while the studio has facilities on location.

We spent a few nights here at the end of our vacation. We prefer to be located directly on the beach but for the price, this resort is great. We were very happy with our 2 bedroom, lock-off unit. It was pretty big, and suited us perfectly. My kids loved buzzing around in the golf carts and the drivers were so nice, but it was a bit of a hassle with all of our stuff. The infinity pool bartenders are the absolute worst. You would literally die of thirst before they could be bothered to serve you. We quickly got aggravated and avoided it all together. Too bad, because we had $$ to spend!! The new grill was great though, and the server there was awesome. The breakfast buffet was a nightmare with the birds. You couldn't take your eyes off your plate or birds would swoop in. The beach was amazing- water was clearer than Palm Beach and we loved the waves. All in all, a nice place to stay if you are on a budget.

I have to say the place grew on me as the week went on. At first I was less than happy, but it is a timeshare exchange so it is what it is.
Check in and arrival was smooth and without any issue. I do wish they gave out a intro packet to explain everything. It was here is the key and see you type of thing.
Room 128- Has a nice view from a large balcony of the pool and partial ocean. The room is large and dated. Tile white floor, kitchen, bathroom, king bed. The bed was firm just like I like.
This unit is in need of a major surface cleaning, and pest control of ants. The AC ran for 7 days at 65 and never cooled off the room, lucky I got a sunburn so it seemed cooler. It only cools half the room and the ceiling fan has one speed, on. Nice flat screen and new lamps. Tub needs to be serviced to remove the chips and the rust of the fixtures are a easy fix. The room was on the third floor, no elevator. Street front, but was quite enough. Housekeeping was daily and slow. The towels are bad, small and rough.
Property, is excellent for anyone of any age. Well kept up. The pools are very nice. The beach chairs are random, go early otherwise they good ones get taken. The beach is awesome, clean and worth the visit. The gym is nice, except for the guy smoking outside the door to the gym that worked in the boutique next door.
Wifi really bad.
Suggestion to Managers. You could make so much more money if the guests could use their room key to purchase anything anywhere on any of the properties. IE: the tiki pool side bar doesnt accept credit card or room number, the bar on the beach accepts room number but is a hassle to write it up, some places require you to buy coupons to eat or drink, some place take room key. Why make it so hard to spend money. We gave up, went to store and bought liquor and food. No one wants to carry cash on the beach. It would also be a good idea to have waiters running up and down the beach taking orders for food and drinks. I saved a bundle, you lost money. Just saying.
Overall it is a good central average place. Within the property there are newer units, I didnt get to see them. If they spent the time cleaning the units better (look at the fingerprints on the door to the bathroom, they been there a while), better towels, fixed the AC and gave an easy way to buy things it would be an excellent place to stay.
Right now I give only 3 stars.
Other notes:
Grocery Store within walking distance that has great food, wine and liquor
Rent a Jeep from Amigo Car Rental, cheapest in town /airport
Eat out breakfast in your unit, lunch by the pool and dinner go explore.
Mio Wireless Mobile Internet, rent it for the week $59 at The Market by Alahambra Casino. Up to 5 people can use it at same time. Got 4g and never ran out. Was so worth it and used it everywhere on the island.
Leaving be at the airport 3 hours prior, US customs and Aruba customs are there. Use the Priority Club at the airport.

Room Tip: In my area they all looked dated but really close to the beach. There are some that are right on the beach, if you have kids get a bottom floor. If you want romance get a top floor.

I am a timeshare owner and this was our first visit to Aruba, and let me begin by saying.. LOVED IT... we had two unites 4119 and 4120 and had tons of room and in a quiet area of the resort. Very close to the infinity pool and slide so the kids could play. The unit was great, water pressure not a problem until the last day as they are updating the pipes in some areas. (Again, i don't mind since i know they are updating the resort) . We had breakfast twice and all was served buffet which my little one enjoyed the pancakes. The grounds were well kept, and had friendly lizards and iguanas to look at while laying by the pool. Check in was extremely easy and they explained how to get around the resort as its a huge area compared to its sister resorts. The beach is across the street but was very convenient to cross as everyone stopped to let us cross with no problems or concerns. Chairs and tiki umbrellas were always available at all times during the day. Again we will be back as we added this resort to our favorite list.

For those that complained of smells and bugs.. You have to remember your on an island and if patrons don't close the balcony doors as requested from the resort then moisture will tend to build up but if you request they will take care of. They are improving some of the grounds but once they are finished it will be immaculate place to spend time with family.

Room Tip: Units near the golf course are quiter
