Just got back from Aruba and cannot wait to go back! The Tamarijn was definitely a great choice for us…very reasonably priced. You cannot beat the ocean view and the beach is amazing! A little annoyed by the people waking up at the crack of dawn to reserve the chairs under the huts for shade..so some advice if you are willing to wake up at 6am to put your towel on one of the chairs under the hut..go for it. A few complaints…they gave us 2 queen size beds instead of 1 king size and when asked if we could switch rooms, they told us in 2 days, so we just stayed with the room with 2 beds. Rooms are small, bathrooms needs updating but you get what you pay for. Not too many options for lunch ..only buffet (which is not air conditioned and extremely hot) and the pizza hut. I would recommend eating lunch at the Divi Buffet because they have air conditioning. Also, the buffet at the Tam is swarming with flies and fruit flies so do yourself a favor and walk or take golf cart to Divi to eat. Red parrot and Ginger were very good. Staff was amazing! Cannot wait to return! Ignore all of the bad reviews..this hotel is definitely the best value for your money!
