    Are you booking this private through someone or through the resort itself?

    if you are talking of the tower building of the divi phoenix, i have been in there 3x.
    one of our members......sherryf, had rented there and we visited.

    she had a great unit with a great view.
    the place needed updating and from what i know, it has been totally renovated.

    we were not wild about the elevators.

    but the unit itself was terrific.
    large
    great views
    1 bedroom and i think the balcony was off the bedroom.

    the beach area had plenty of shade and was uncrowded.

    maybe sherryf will reply her views.

    but i do think the place has been renovated.

    andrea, the unit kath is talking about is in the new section. the old units do not have washers and dryers. where we stayed was the high rise which i totally agree with you about. the elevators are the only drawback to wonderful units that i would rent any time.

    i have never been in the newest section but several of my friends have and love it. they say the view is great, the unit is spacious and with everything almost new it has to be great. i wouldn't hesitate to take the unit.

    the only problem they are having at the phoenix from what i know is that they are still working on the beach in front of the new units. that means that beach space is limited. so my only hesitation would be in knowing when you are planning to visit aruba. if it is during off season, there's always enough space for everyone, even with the new buildings. if it is high season, you might want to keep track of the beach clean up.

    the old tower is "not" the beach tower?
    the "old tower" is the building i was in?

    regardless.........imo, the divi phoenix is a great spot, a great resort and now even better since they have renovated and constructed!

    yes andrea, where i stayed and you got to visit is the oldest building of the phoenix. it was built and abandoned (if i recall correctly) and divi bought it, turned it into something viable and made people like me believers. a few years later they built the low buildings in front of the tower. it was just within the last 2 years that they built and finally opened the beach towers. you can't go wrong staying in any unit.
