I am still looking for a nice place to accomodate 9 people in June 2011 with an all-inclusive option. I do not know anything about the Divi Resorts, not even where they are located. I would appreciate any feedback, especially on the suites with kitchens. I would really love a place that is directly on the beach, no shuttling if I can avoid it.
The Divi Phoenix is the only "Divi" on Palm Beach. It is a timeshare and does not offer an all inclusive. All other resorts are located on Druif Beach.
The all inclusive is bookable as an option through a package for the Divi Village, Links or Dutch Village or as an add on if you are renting a timeshare unit at either of those properties say directly from an owner.
Divi does sell above timeshares as vacation packages. For reservation purposes they include the Divi Village and Divi Links together as one property. The way to distinguish between the two is that at the Divi Links, the units are "golf villas". I do not believe the condos are yet completed and are still under construction. The Links are terrific for someone looking for a "pool vacation". The units are fairly far from the beach. The Divi Village is closer to the beach, you only need to cross over a small road to get to the beach.
The Divi Dutch Village is located behind the Tamarijn and is not directly on the beach. There are pathways between each of the Tamarijn's buildings to gain beach access. Beach and shade palapas are shared with the guests of the Tamarijn All Inclusive.
If I remember correctly, you have some children in your party? Children 17 years and younger stay and eat free at the Tamarijn and at times, at the Divi. I have some photos of the Tamarijn here.
I agree. I do think I want to be on Palm Beach though, this is making me a bit crazy....
My son has a metabolic disorder where he would not be eating anything but what I cook for him (with the exception of McDonalds fries and Fridays fries). I could do it with just a refrigerator and microwave I believe. The reservations specialist at The Westin was very helpful and said I could rent a refrigerator and microwave from the hotel. They have a nice all-inclusive package but it is pricey.
I am waiting to hear from the concierge at The Radisson. I sent an email several days ago and haven't heard back. I thought the Divi resorts would be an option but not if they aren't on Palm Beach. I am traveling with 4 people in their 20's we need to be where the action is.
