    Pure ocean was great. As soon as we arrived until the moment we left we felt welcome and cared for. The food was excellent and my wife’s gluten free preferences were met with no qualms. Staff was excellent. Would dine again!

    Not as good as previous dinners we’ve had here times before! The Drinks more ice than liquor taste! Shrimp cocktail tiny ones in a bowl presentation with no cocktail sauce as expected! Main entree meats were good but only mash potatoes served, no vegetables! Very beautiful ocean environment with sunset! One Recommendation is to have staff waiter serving give patron time to look over bill without standing over him with charge machine immediately! EXTREMELY RUDE & UNCOMFORTABLE

    The location on the beach is great. However, every protein was overcooked, some of it was eatable. Service was slow, but decent. It took over an hour to get our mains. Given the price paid, we left feeling ripped off.

    Loved the beach front atmosphere. Live entertainment made for an extra special evening. My dinner of Seafood Mac and Cheese was delicious. My husband thought the Mahi Mahi was very good. For me, the menu was a little bit limited. I preferred the selection at a Passions, similar beach front dining, at Eagle Beach. 15% service fee added on but apparently that’s not the same as a tip for your waiter/waitress.

    this was the cutest beach front dining experience! Our waiters name was Eduardo and he was so kind. They had live musicians and it was the perfect vibe. There plates were big probably one plate enough for one person (i also eat small amounts). The caribbean mac and cheese was so filling! 10/10 recommend to go during sunset!

    Made a reservation for 7:30pm. Didn't sit until 8:15. Didn't have a waiter for 20 minutes after. Then the waiter asked for us to order everything right away because they were very busy... we waited to sit just to be rushed.. and then we waited on them to return maybe once or twice. At checkout, I thought I put my card in the wrong way so I pulled it out. He told me I "needed to have patience". I said I've been here since 7:25 so that's a good joke. I think the ambience was great and the food was good. Just a terrible day of service. Wishing you a better visit!

    Service was terrible! We waited for 20 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order and then we were there for another hour before the food was served and those were the only times anyone stopped by our table. The view and food were ok which is the only reason I’m giving two stars.

    Be careful. We thought that we would ena sunset dinner for our anniversary. WRONG. They sat a foursome next to us with a newborn. Their waiter decided that it would be a good idea to take their picture, right in front of our sunset as it was setting. Smooth move, wow. I hope they enjoyed my photo bomb as it was the only way to see the sunset. Yikes. Now the crying, cooing and screeching. So, we asked to move tables. We already missed the Sunland ambiance. The appies were fine. My wife ordered salmon which was very good. I ordered the cowboy steak AND was looking forward to it, BUT not to end the comedy of errors, the medium rare steak came out well done. My disgust was evident, the offer by the management to "adjust" the bill meant taking off the steak that I didn't eat off the bill. WOW. How gracious, NOT. Thanks for nothing. Thank God there are many finer places to dine in Aruba. And perhaps why there were so many empty tables.

    Perfect date night, great staff!! Had drinks at bar one night to listen to live music, then went back two nights later for dinner and our waiter remembered seeing us at the bar! We had perfect table right on beach near water watching beautiful sunset! We had crab cake (good) and raviolli (truffle I think) (fabulous) for appetizers. For our meals, we got rack of lamb and stuffed portobello (both were stupendous)! Great overall experience and def recommend (even if your not staying at the divi phoenix) and tip well bc they had to work twice as hard trudging through the soft sand in long pants, socks and shoes which we all know is challenging!!,

    Service was very slow despite the restaurant being very quiet with few customers. My steak was overcooked and needed to be re-done and was then very raw! Food had good seasoning but not overly impressed with this restaurant as there are many other good places to dine on the island with better service.

    The Buffet was very good, the setting is beautiful, there was some confusion who our server would be, drinks were very slow, ran out of many desserts prior to the end of the buffet, the food was good, and the place is beautiful. We’re finishing our drinks at the table and the waitstaff told us they were closing..1030 on NYE!we had a 9pm seating!

    Avoid. Food was mixed. More importantly service was abysmal and slow. We were seated at the right time and our waiter asked us to be patient so he could finish taking care of other tables. We agreed of course. He came back 10 minutes later and took our order. We ordered 2 vegan dishes and 3 non-vegan dishes. We asked him 3 times to confirm our order. We explained that it was important because some of us did not eat cheese. He assured us it would be 100% correct. Another table sat down next to us 15 minutes later. Our appetizers came out in 15 minutes. Mine (ravioli) was not hot but I did not complain. We then waited an hour for main course. The waiter came over to the next table and shook hands and welcomed them. They got their main course before us. The waiter clearly bumped us to help them. He knew it and without any complaint from us, he came over to us and apologized for the wait and assured us that our mains were coming out “now”. Well 20 minutes later we asked him to explain why we were still waiting. He was defensive and rude. He told me that it was not canned food and I needed to chill out. 10 minutes later we still were sitting and a manager came out. He was apologetic and acknowledged that our food was inexcusably delayed. He offered us drinks. But we just wanted our food. The food finally came and they did not give us 2 vegan dishes. So we had to share. My salmon was overcooked and fishy. I would not go back unless I was paid. Stay away. So many better choices.
