This was our first trip to Aruba. We traveled out on 13th Oct from Gatwick for just one week to surprise friends who had booked in for the Divi. Wish we had booked for the 2 weeks. It was a fantastic week. Staff generally happy and helpful ( always the odd exception ), rooms with great views over a perfect beach. Food, drink, resort, people, weather all great – what else can you say? Would be nice if all restaurants were non smoking, because even outside on a still evening the smoke lingered. Great checking in on the coach. Loved the Pelicans on the beach and the Iguanas around the pool and other areas. Had room 1214 – upstairs but central and not noisy. The friends we surprised said that this is the best hotel/beach they have been to and they have been to a lot of the Caribbean. Would we go back – yes please – no problem.
