Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort Palm Beach Reviews
Great location, beautiful views, great drinks Sep 05, 2005
We stayed at the Divi All Inclusive Aug. 2005 and really enjoyed it. I think the value was great for the price. I loved the fact that the hotel was away from the high-rise area of the island. Our room was very nice and clean. We had a huge balcony. The building that our room was in is right on the beach so in the morning you can just walk down the steps and right onto the beach. You should get up on the early side if you prefer a tiki hut. The beach is stunning! It's actually one of my very favorites out of all the beaches I've been on. Very warm, very clear, calm water.
The buffet was good, not great. Some iguanas and birds hang close for crumbs which might annoy some people. The restaurants had surprisingly good food. We enjoyed all of them. At the Palm Grill you can cook your own food in the middle of the table which is interesting. The bartenders are great...very friendly and they definitely don't skimp on the booze! We had a lot of fun hanging out at the bars. One of our favorite things was the snack bar. The pizza was delicious and made in a stone oven. The sandwiches were equally delicious and the snack bar stays open really late...perfect for the night owls.
We enjoyed Aruba for the relaxation on the resort, but the island is definitely not for those who want to go out and explore. Safety isn't the issue, it's just a dry, desert-like island. The only attractions to see (1) WAS the Natural Bridge, but that fell, and (2) Baby Beach. It's GREAT for snorkeling...tons of fish. It's a very unique beach the way the rocks naturally form a shallow inlet.
We went to the well-known Carlos & Charlies one night and it was wild and fun. On one side of the main road in the little shopping area is a pretty outdoor mall, but the opposite side is run-down booths with cheap odd and ends. I can't comment on any restaurants in town since we did all-inclusive and ate at the resort restauarants for every meal.
All in all, Aruba has beautiful beaches, great weather and we were very happy at the Divi All Inclusive.
