myself and my husband will be coming to aruba from england for our first visit this year. we will be staying at the divi golf and beach resort. i have read various reviews on this resort and they are mixed. has anyone stayed here recently to give me a review.
We stayed there last Christmas for a week and found it a nice place to stay. It is in a more quiet location then the High rise section but we found that to our liking. The beach across the street is beautiful and not crowded at all. The pools in the rear of the property get more activity and kids but it has a nice pool bar. The pools up front are quieter and seem to be used by adults. The bar across the street on the second level of the Tam Hotel is a great place to have a drink and watch the sun go down. The restaurants at the Golf Club offer both casual and upscale dining choices. We went the casual route and enjoyed the food and service. Once you get your bearings and figure out how to get around the island you will appreciate the location. We are going back this December and staying there again. Enjoy your visit!
thank you bobd1723, only 4 days to go now until we fly i am getting very nervous and excited at the same time. hope the weather will be hot, its done nothing but rain for the past 2 weeks here in England(our weather is awful). i have packed only summer clothes so hopefully a coat will not be needed!
have you any suggestions what to do on the island, rather like the sound of helicopter tour and sunset sail?
my husband likes golf so may need to book him a round at the links
With daytime temperatures, 33 C. - 34 C. and last night's low temperature of 29 C. there is no need whatsoever for a coat or jacket. Maybe a sweater for air conditioning in the restaurants and casinos. Bring plenty of sunscreen!
Having just returned to England from two weeks in Aruba I can verify that it is hot. We had two weeks of 32C to 35C during the day, barely falling below 30C at night. I did take one sweater along but it did not make it out of the suitcase until I returned home to damp, cold England.
