    welcome to the forum

    please check out the My aruba Story category

    there may be some trip reviews in there that includes Divi golf.

    i have friends that own there weeks 5, 6, 7, 8 and i have visited but never stayed overnight on that particular property. the place is lovely.

    it is a bit of a walk to the beach but one can grab the golf cart shuttle thingy for a lift.
    the units are nice and the infinity pool is beautiful.

    check this link Divi Golf Resort vs Divi Ditch Village

    Smile Divi Golf and Beach Resort

    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

    The helicopter tour and sunset sail are both great ideas.

    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.

    Enjoy you holiday - it really is paradise there.
