TAMARIJN ARUBA, A GREAT RESORT We three ladies stayed at the Tamarijn Aruba, Building 25 from April 8 â 15, 2017, overlooking the beautiful beach and Turquoise Ocean with the many palapas that we never had to âtowel-reserveâ early in the morning as they were always available. One of the days we woke up to see a cruise ship arriving and three more already docked in Oranjestad which is about a 10-15 minute drive, by taxi or bus, from the resort. Checking in was very slow as there were only two receptionist for a group of new arrivals. At the time the reservation was made, approximately three months before our travel date, with a request for upper level with connecting rooms, and a follow up email with this same request, with the understanding this might not be available but did not expect to be assigned one room on ground level and two rooms on upper level although we had one confirmation number â¦ not three separate confirmation numbers. After a small discussion we all ended up on the upper level, 2502, 2504 and 2508. Connecting rooms were 2502 and 2504. We were then told that there would be an orientation meeting the following morning at 10:30. Never took place. We presumed that this would have been presented by a WestJet Rep. King size bed (very comfortable), table with two chairs, lots of storage space, television, in room safe and fridge in each room. We did miss not having coffee makers but this was not a big issue. However, unlike other resorts that we had been too, there were no bottles of water in the fridge and this should definitely be a priority. We solved that by buying water from one of the stores in the hotel. The bathroom was also very clean with lots of towels, soap/shampoo wall dispensers, however the lighting was definitely not the best. Mirabel our cleaning lady was friendly and our rooms were always cleaned by the time we got back from breakfast. We certainly appreciated being able to call the front desk for a golf cart pick-up at any time by one of the friendly drivers who, most of the time, remembered us. Cunuco Terrace Restaurant served a variety of very tasty meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner. We particularly loved the omelettes, the pancakes, the fruit at breakfast, and the pasta at lunch. Elvira was our favorite server. She took care of us every day and provided exceptional customer service and always made us feel so welcome. We were very sorry that we did not have the opportunity to say thank you again before we left. We had Juan Pablo once and although polite not as helpful or friendly. Iris the concierge was so friendly and helpful, always made us laugh. We found it a bit of a chore that we had to remember to go every second day to make dinner reservations. Should be an easier way...perhaps being able to make all reservations at once. Not much nightly entertainment, but we must mention Amy on Sunday night. The entertainment board is located next to the front desk. RESTAURANTS: PURE LIME (Mexican at the Divi). Great decor....service was good, friendly staff...food was excellent and margaritas fantastic! GINGER (Asian at Tamarijn) was another favourite. The food was very good although the service was a bit slow and not overly friendly. PALM GRILL (grill your own at Tamarijin) was a little disappointing in terms of atmosphere and service and not open on Thursdays. RED PARROT (AT DIVI)was very good on our second visit. The first time we visited we had a later reservation and the service was extremely poor. We waited a while to be acknowledged and have our drink order taken...the waiter finally came back and asked in surprise 'oh you didn't get bread? âas though we were to fetch our own. The food was mediocre at best. We were given a dessert menu and left 15 minutes after as clearly the waiter had forgotten to come back and take our dessert order. We put the poor service down to the late reservation but that really should not have been a factor or an excuse for poor customer satisfaction. Another observation was that another couple who arrived the same time as us were turned away because they did not have a reservation and we wondered why because there were empty tables when we arrived and still empty when we left! After speaking to other guests and hearing/reading good reviews on the Red Parrot we decided to give it another try on our last night. This time we were not at all disappointed in the service or the food. Our waiter was attentive and the food extremely good. Glad we gave it a second chance. Pizza per tutti bar right off the lobby was definitely our favourite haunt for the week. The drinks were great and served up by friendly fun staff. ...Robbie,Gabriel and Jon!! We ordered lunch a few times and were not disappointed. Yummy Mexican Fries!! THE POOL BAR (Coconuts. I think it was called ) was ok too....very busy and usually a bit of a wait. BUNKER BAR on the beach was good although busy at times the service was good. Rudy was very friendly and attentive. OTHER ACTIVITIES: The sunset cruise was nice but the crowd seemed to just enjoy the fact that we were sailing unlike another cruise that one of us had been on where it was more a party atmosphere. THE DEPALM LAND ROVER caravan of five is a must, but not for the faint of heart. Our driver Sheldon, (alias John if we gave a bad review) who we were sure purposely found every rock, bump and jolting ride once we got off the main road to the north side of Aruba was so much fun, and the scary âOMGâ terrain on the way to the Natural Bridge, Natural Pool, Alto Vista Chapel, the California Lighthouse was so definitely exciting! These experienced drivers do intentionally try to heighten the experience by trying to outmaneuver the other drivers for a better position driving over whatever rock was in the way and the many bumpy, shake, rattle and roll roads made for laughter and screams especially when we ran into unexpected rain. The Tamarijn Aruba was absolutely a great resort and we would definitely return.More
A week in Paradise
We were in 2200 building first floor, out one side we had the Caribbean Sea the other way we had a beautiful pool just steps from our door. The food was fresh and amazing at the Cucunu Terrace. We also ate at the Red Parrot, the Ginger and the Palm Grill, all were Amazing! You need to make reservations for these ones so plan out your dinners and go visit the concierge as soon as you get there, they book fast. We biked, snorkeled, rented a car one day, took a shuttle to casino and then walked to get to Eagle Beach..one of the Top Ten beaches in the Caribbean. Rented a jet ski at Eagle Beach....this trip was amazing....going back next year for sure.More
Nice resort all rooms are right on the beach, yes there are rocks but water shoes will work. Restaurant staff was very kind and attentive to your needs. Beach activity like sailing and snorkeling was a walk down the beach but your on vacation. All said we enjoyed our 8 days at the Tamarijn.More
The tamarijn is our second home!
My husband and I got married at the sandpiper bar and we just spent 2 weeks here all together. This was our 5th visit to the tamarijn. This resort is a paradise. The food is great, whether you pick the buffet or any of the restaurants, you won't go wrong. The rooms are a little outdated but this is low on our list of needs. The beach is fantastic, much less rocks and coral, easy to get in and out. The updates done to the resort in the past year are fantastic. We loved the night life, especially the DJ. He had the crowd rocking with his mixes. The staff at the tamarijn have become friends to us! John, Andrea, Alfonso, Gabriel, Julio, JP, Eddy and Carmen are all great people. We look forward to seeing them and catching up every year. They are efficient, hardworking and friendly to all, and always remember us when we return! They make great drinks, remember your preferences, and before you even have to ask another drink will be waiting for you! I don't understand reviews who complain about rude staff. The only bartender we didn't like was named Diego. He ignored customers, and was bossy and nasty towards his coworkers which made us uncomfortable. But we didn't let that stop us from having a great time. We will surely be returning next year for our 6th trip! More
we have just returned back from this hotel and would like to share our views with anyone going or thinking of going.firstly we had reservations before we went but found no problems at all.we checked in on the coach which was good,no delay and on arrival went straight to room. we had requested block 18 ground floor and got our choice,in our opinion it was perfect loation.near to babuna bar also near to main restaurant,and all amenities.we also had a good beach infront of us.we got up early for sunbed choice but 8 was early enough.food was good,drinks good and found staff good ,we did not feel we had to tip but did sometimes for kindness shown to us.speciality restaurants tried all with no favourites .we used divi for a change for meals and night life all the same.cocktails , beer ,wine all good.More
