Ranking Reflects Guest Satisfaction, Follows 2011 Kudos from Top Travel Brands

Oranjestad, Aruba – 2012 is shaping up as another banner year for the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives, which have just been ranked as the #1 and #2 hotels in Oranjestad, Aruba, on TripAdvisor for the first time.

“It’s truly an honor to hold these top spots on TripAdvisor because the ratings upon which the properties are ranked come directly from our guests,” said Alex Nieuwmeyer, Managing Director of Divi Resorts Aruba and Bonaire.  “The fact that both the Divi Aruba and the Tamarijn Aruba are rated so high is both a milestone and a testament to the success of our operations even within today’s highly competitive marketplace.  Now we can have some fun, friendly competition between our sister properties for the #1 spot, which can only serve to improve the guest experience.”
