Outstanding 50th Birthday….Loved the Divi Posted Apr 20, 2015 on Hotels
The landscape was beautiful, the beach was outstanding, the food in the special restaurants were great, the staff was fantastic. If anyone wrote anything bad about this hotel, they are just grumpy people looking to complain about something. We ate at all 4 specialty restaurants. Our favorite was the Red Parrot overlooking the ocean. The Paparazzi was great and so was Gingers. The hibachi grill was small and did not look that interesting. We almost cancelled and I am so glad we didn't . It was a fun experience cooking your food right at the table. The buffets were just good, but lots of choices. Aruba itself is a very safe island and we did venture out of the hotel to do some shopping. If you are looking for a fun day out, I suggest the Snorkel Catamaran trip the hotel offers. It took us to three spots (2 coral reefs and a sunken ship). The staff was great and the food was outstanding. We stayed in the garden view rooms because that was all that was left when we booked. I am so glad we did. It overlooked the smaller pool which was never crowded (felt like our private pool), easy walking to the beach and we had a ground floor patio which was nice. Overall, it was a very nice relaxing time in Aruba. We love this Island and everyday is always beautiful with a light wind. Every morning was a beautiful sunrise and every night was Awesome sunset. I got great photos!!. BTW this hotel was fully booked when we were there, but you would have never known it.
