Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort
Ranked #13 of 24 Hotels in Palm - Eagle Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 January 2013

This was our first stay at the Divi Phoenix where we own a time share. We were there for two weeks, including the Christmas week. Our first floor one-bedroom unit was spacious and comfortable. The kitchenware did not include a spatula, but they provided one when we asked. I think a spatula should be included in every room. Cooking is on a cooktop and a combination microwave and convection unit that cooked, grilled, defrosted, etc. It worked quite well.

The only appliance that is terrible is the combination washer and dryer. This is not two applicances stacked on top of each other, but one unit that washes and then attempts to dry. The washer is fine, but the dryer is completely inadequate. I wound up taking a load of wash to the Tower building where they have regular dryers. The only other criticism is having to pay for Wifi. We hope this will change for our next visit.

The location is ideal. It is at one end of Palm Beach, with its own large beach. There is a public beach and police station that separates it from the strip of high rise hotels. You can walk to everything but it is quiet and far away from the frenetic activity. We like to have a car, but you can definitely get by without one and use cabs and the bus.

It is an ideal family place; the Christmas week was awash with kids, so avoid it if you just want to be quiet. The week before was much quieter.

We had excellent weather with just one rainy day. We love Aruba and have gone at least 9 times. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The villas are the oldest section, then the Tower, and then the newest buildings which I recommend.

This location is fantastic, right on the beach, open air lobby and hallways, ample parking, beautiful well-appointed rooms, multiple pools, one with a swim up bar! This resort/hotel is worth every penny, I highly recommend it!

We booked our Studio Suite, Room 105, as an Extra Vacation through RCI, since we couldn’t find an exchange that met all our criteria. What luck!!

We were looking for pure R&R and we found it. Our suite, located on the ground floor of the older Beach Villas is perfect for us. Sadly, we leave tomorrow (moving to another resort), and we definitely plan to return.

PROS
• Suite was spacious and well equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals.
• Extremely comfortable queen bed.
• Loved the plugs in the lamp bases for charging ipod, computer, etc.
• Lovely patio facing the villas’ pool and beyond the beach.
• Lots of closet and drawer space.
• Jacuzzi tub in bathroom, with a great shower. Loads of towels and soap.
• Spectacular turquoise beach to wade in and cool off; perfect for kids. Loads of available beach chairs and palapas; we especially liked the quiet beach to the south of the resort.
• No beach vendors. A couple of days vendors did set up near our unit, but they were quiet and did not bother us in anyway. I did buy a lovely bracelet with numerous coloured stones for only $12.
• Ice cream in the Pure Deli.
• Coin laundry a great plus, since we’re in Aruba for two weeks and prefer to pack light.
• Welcome party on the second night for timeshare members – open bar, dancing, prizes.
• No timeshare sales pressure. We only had to say once that we weren’t interested in attending the “update meeting”, and that was that.
• Enjoyed evening strolls along the boardwalk past the high rise hotels, giving us a sneak peak at some other hotel options, and convincing us further that the Divi Phoenix is the perfect resort for us.

CONS – note these are all very minor, and in no way took away from a wonderful relaxing experience.

• Construction noise at the Sun Splash bar and Sunset Grill, both of which are currently undergoing major renovations. It was easy to escape the noise, so not a problem, but I wonder why this work wasn’t completed prior to high season.
• The fridge door swings the wrong way making it awkward to use. Since the door is reversible, this could easily be fixed.
• The over-counter light takes about 15 minutes to light – weird.
• The room thermostat is hidden behind the large and heavy TV/dresser cupboard. We would have preferred to be able to turn off the AC and open the patio doors during the day and evening. However, I understand this is done deliberately to prevent humidity build-up in the room, leading to that nasty mustiness found in many Caribbean ground floor rooms.
• $50 for a week of WiFi – I think times have changed enough that WiFi should be included everywhere – but that’s me. On the plus side, it worked easily and consistently, unlike many other resorts we have been to in the last few years.
• The hot tub in the villas area was too hot!
• The recommended grocery stores were dreadful! Luckily we found Kong Hing supermarket, next to the old Super Foods, which has great selection and reasonable prices.

We rented a car, but it’s not really needed. For the same price or less you could take a coach tour of the island, taxi to/from airport and to the grocery store. For those who prefer to eat out, there is a good selection of restaurants and bars within walking distance, although I would taxi back after dark.

Room Tip: We would definitely prefer a ground floor studio in the Beach Villas again, but I suspect that all r...

We just returned from a wonderful week at the Divi Phoenix in Aruba. The hotel was great. the one-bedroom suite was nice because we brought another couple and they were able to have their own bathroom. They said that the pull-out sofa was comfortable. I liked the Divi because of the room, beach and pool. This resort was small but had all of the amenities. The beach was close to the pool and room so you didn't have to walk far. The hotel was clean. The front desk people were frienlyy and helpfut-especially Lakaisha. The only problem was with the service at the poolside restaurant. They were nice but extremely slow. You had to wait for drinks and food for what seemed to be over a half hour. This should not happen especially since there weren't many people there. The food was just average. We would definately return.

Room Tip: Rooms are all nice.
