re: 1BRs at Divi Golf and Beach Resort.
Actually 3 areas. Original Divi Village, then the Villas at Divi,
and third, the Golf Villas. Each has a pool. Largest is the
Infinity pool at the Golf Villas, then the Seabreeze pool at
Divi Village. Smallest is at the Villas at Divi.
Tram shuttles available from the Golf Villas to Divi Village.
Beach (Druif) is a short walk from Divi Village. Must cross a road.
A longer walk from the Golf Villas, many take the shuttles.

1BR units in the C building (3000 unit number series) and
three in the D building (8000 unit number series).
Elevators in the C building. No elevators at other buildings.
Handicap ramp at C building.

1BR units in the E and F buildings (The Villas at Divi).
1BR units in the Golf Villas (Birdie/Eagles).
The studio/1BR layouts for the Villas & the Golf Villas are similar.
Building F at the Villas = a Golf Villas Birdie & the
Building E at the Villas = A Golf Villas Eagle in terms of building
and unit construction.

With 3 kids, you may want to consider the all inclusive meals option that
lets you use the several restaurants and other food services at the
Tamarijn and the Divi Aruba. Divi's web site describes this option.

Having a direct rental from Divi puts you into Divi's "excess inventory"
of units (units not held by fixed week owners or by RCI via the Points
program). Sort of a luck of the draw situation. So, you may want to
consider giving Divi N.C. a call to let them know that, with 3 kids, you'd
appreciate something close to either the Seabreeze pool or the Infinity Pool.

All in all, a C building 1BR might be the best choice for pool/beach access.

I'm trying to figure out the difference between the resorts.
When you say there are three, divi village,the villas, and the golf villas are they all together or is divi village what is called dutch village? Kind of confusing and their web site isn't very clear either. We are going there this Sat. the 15th and were trying to figure out where we would be. We booked through RCI and our confirmation is a one bedroom with two baths at Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort. Its not for the golf villas but I can't figure out the difference between the other two. Can someone enlighten.

Im kind of in the same shape as our time share will not be completed until Oct of this year and Divi put us up in the Golf Villas.. Ive never seen them and not sure what the inside looks like. They gave us a 2 bedroom lock out, dont know if it has 2 kitchens or 2 baths or where it faces, the golf course or the beach. Im going blind and not very sure if we will like it because we had just bought into a timeshare at the Phoinex inwhich we choose the unit there. I want what we bought, I hate the Idea of going and not knowing what to expect.

Parking is available.
Not always right up close
That's why there's Balashi

btw, new palapas were being installed at the Infinity Pool's zero edge and a new bar's construction was just starting at the Sea Breeze pool when we left Feb. 25th.

About Golf Villa 2BR lockouts.
Could be in an Eagle or a Birdie building. Either consists of a 1BR/Studio combination. Both the 1BR and the Studio are self contained units.
Each has its own fully functional kitchen and bathroom. 1BR has a second bathroom and a larger kitchen area. Both have the masterbed and
a sleeper couch. 1BR, of course has the bed in a separate room.
If you are on the second floor of an Eagle then you have use of the roof top hot tub/wet bar/BBQ. One for the second floor studio & one for the 2nd floor 1BR.
The Birdie buildings also have roof top areas. Each Birdie has two hot tubs with an adjacent BBQ. No wet bar.

Views in the Golf Villas complex vary. Just as many "garden view" (other buildings, golf course, what ever) as "ocean view" from 2nd floor Eagles. The Birdie buildings (3rd floor for sure, somewhat for 2nd floor) all have something of an "ocean/garden view".

n.b., don't park the jeep on links - golfers' wouldn't be happy!
