I got to the resort on Monday around 5 PM a lot of cats around which were surprising but no problems. Parking was good I rented a car from Fox. I pretty much went to their local Casino, bar, and convenience store which were just a few minutes from my room which was great. The hotel staff gave me comp points for the casino and a map of the island which was very helpful. I did a few excursions; visited many beaches; ate at a bunch of restaurants around the island. I would be back tomorrow but still paying of this recent trip and had a wonderful time while on the island.

Our only concern was the water temp in the shower, not warm enough. We called front desk and within 15 minutes maintenance was at our door and made the necessary adjustment. Very pleased! Plan to return.

"Beautiful facility, but disappointed with mgmt.
Large king bed suite with lovely balcony next to babbling brook. Infinity pool and jacuzzi hot tub 30 feet away. Beautiful landscaping and beach. Two restaurants, deli, and beach bar and grille, plus several shops and general store. Taxi and car rental service on site.
BUT.. When we arrived (tired) we had to wait 1/2 hour for someone to take us to our room (located at top of large hill, so we needed a golf cart to transport our luggage). Bedside lamp did not work - called mgmt., but no one ever showed up. Balcony doors out of align; very difficult to open and I couldn't even pull them together close enough to lock. Toilet clogged up on Tuesday - called mgmt., but no one showed so we spent an hour pouring buckets of water in toilet (no plunger in bathroom). Finally fixed it, but clogged again the next day. After the third clog, called again - this time someone did arrive and fixed the problem. "Concierge" was very aggressive in efforts to sell time-share (which we did not know they offered and had no interest) - stopped people walking through the property or on the beach, even called our room one night. Construction going on in several locations; woke up to jack hammers taking up tile one morning. Even with 4 eating facilities, options were limited because each restaurant was only open for certain meals and times.
Divi is certainly one of the most attractive resorts, so I would recommend it, but management did not meet my expectations for this kind of resort.

The beach was right in front of us..perfect...the only thing was that when the maid came into clean we didn't get replacement towels until about 5:00...had to use hand towel to dry off as that was all they left us...two days of that. Before we took the room, I don't think they did a thorough job as there was all kinds of candy in bags that were left in the middle drawer of the desk...we just left them there. Hopefully, they clean that out for the next guests.

"Not five star, views and island make it worth it"
This resort is not five star for a few reasons. One being there was an insanely loud reception/party one of the nights we stayed that went until 1am. Tons of people called and complained and nothing was done. When I say loud, I mean we could hear everyone word to every song and could feel the bass bumping. That kind of stuff doesn't happen at a true five star resort. The party was with sonesta so they knew about it and gave no warning. Also, you usually have to ask twice to get whatever you're needing. They are all very nice but definitely never in a hurry. Beautiful island and amazing views and beaches and that's why I would go back. Also the food in azul is very very good and that is definitely five star!
