The Tamarijn All Inclusive has relaxation down to a fine art, mostly thanks to its long beach and sea-view pools. It also offers full use of its sister hotel.
The beach is the centre of attention at the Tamarijn All Inclusive – a pool and a cocktail bar overlook its long sands.
You’ll have use of a pool and five restaurants at this hotel, as well as three pools, five restaurants and a couple of extra bars at the neighbouring Divi Aruba All Inclusive.

Good quiet small resort
We stayed at the Tamarijn for a week and were really pleased. We got all the info needed at the time of booking. We had a room in block 24, which is quite at the end of the resort, but it is actually less crowded (actually not crowded at all) and the beach is really nice, with lots of chairs and palapas. Food at the buffet and restaurants was pretty good, especially the red parrot (at the Divi). Drinks were also good, and the Balashi (local Aruba beer) is great. Staff in general were really nice and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet little resort in paradise, this is it. It is also walking distance from Oranjestad`s downtown.More
Good value, sand at your feet outside sliding door
We've stayed at both the Tamarijn and Divi and I prefer the Tamarijn since all of the rooms face the ocean. The first few buildings do not have much of a beach, but there is sand and a thatched umbrella right outside your sliding door, if you are on the main floor. The rooms are very small and not luxurious, but clean and functional. This hotel is great if you don't want to take an elevator or have to walk through a lobby to get to your room. It's extremely casual. Watersports are limited to kayaks, windsurfers and a few sailboats. This is a great place if you just want to chill on the beach. You can eat at the all inclusive restaurants at both the Tamarijn and the Divi. Best food is at the Red Parrot. Try to get a reservation outside, before sunset. The Asian restaurant was not bad. This is a place to go to if you want an informal, low-rise place. Food is adequate, but Aruba is not known for fabulous food. You can go to St. Barth's at 5 times the price if you want great cuisine. Weather is great in the winter. Much less rain than any of the Caribbean islands. Aruba is near Venezuela, so the sun is intense, but it is very windy, which offsets the high temperatures. Love this place. Stayed at the Hyatt, which is in the high-rise area and found it too formal, too expensive, prefer an all-inclusive. Great value, great weather.More
Life Under The Mango Tree
My wife and I did a two week honeymoon at Tamarijn and loved it! Our room was 2415, which is the last unit in the second last building, so it was nice and quiet. We loved being on the main level and the fact we could go from our door to the water in literally 10 seconds. We didn't have a lot of beach, but we had a nice little lawn in front of our balcony, which had sun, and shade under the mango tree. It was a bit of a hike to the main area, but we didn't mind. We would occasionally take the tram when needed. If I was to return, next time I think I would request a room closer to the bunker bar, to be a little closer to the action, but for an intimate vacation, it was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. We both thought the buffet was excellent and we enjoyed a great meal at each restaurant, except Ginger. It was the only time the service was awful and the food was sub-par. I felt Red Parrot was the best food, but we really liked Paparazzi a lot too. Here are my suggestions: This is not the lap of luxury. They seem to be doing many improvements to make it a lot nicer, but this is a casual resort. If you want higher end, pay the price increase and go next door, but your room won't be mere steps from the sea. Bring water shoes. Don't go to the Divi Points Presentation. It's a waste of time and annoying. The gift is cheap t-shirts, a bottle of champaign (which was good but you're at an all inclusive), and a "free trip" which we never redeemed because of all the restrictions. Relax and enjoy!More
Not what I expected
Be sure to really analyze your desirable stay. Although The Tamarijn Resort was not what I expected I has able to bypass the disappointment and finally enjoy my stay for what it was. I was expecting a mid-end All Inclusive Resort but what I got was a low end resort. 1. The place was dirty everywhere 2. Under staff; My husband and I waited about 35 on line to check in. 3. Once we checked in we had to figure everything out on our own 4. Concier Service was good only if we knew what we where looking for, they really didn't make any effort to make any suggestions. 5. We had to reserve our dinners 2 days in advance, "well" that was not a choice for us, our stay was only 3 night therefore we lost all out food money. We did get some food from their buffet which was "okay" 6. The staff seem very unhappy 7. I'm not a drinker and even so I was able to tell that the drinks at the bar were water-down We did enjoy being very closed to the water. Would I stay here again, must like not unless that do major improvements. More

We had an amazing time at this resort , loved walking out from our room to the beach area. All the rooms face the water and you get the gorgeous sunsets from your balcony. We were Leary after reading some reviews but I am convinced some people are just difficult to please because we couldn't find a flaw, not that we were looking for them. The food and drinks were good , we really enjoyed our stay and would return. More
