We are going first time to Aruba to Divi Phoenix Beach July 6-15. I have two questions re: palapas, huts, cabanas, etc…. Is there difference in types structure, or it’s the same individual shaded area that has different names? I read on this forum that some hotel officially charge pre-reservation fees, and in some, you just tip upfront $20, and have palapa reserved for you. Question: is there official reservation in Divi Phoenix? If you tip upfront, is the palapa yours for the whole day, part of the day, and do you tip $20 every day, or is it $20 for the whole week?
Thanks a lot for your responses.
