Meet our featured President’s Elite Members for this issue, James and Brenda Dubilzig from Perrysburg, Ohio.
The Dubilzigs became Divi Vacation Club Members back in February 2016, converting their traditional Divi Vacation ownership weeks to Pure Points. The couple travels twice a year to Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, often bringing along their adult son, daughter and their significant others, so they were looking for more flexibility.
On one of the Dubilzigs’ recent trips to Aruba, we sat down with them to learn why the Divi Vacation Club fits their needs so well.
“The flexibility is truly a great benefit for the whole family,” James said. “We enjoy being able to choose different room sizes depending on how many people we have traveling with us. It’s also convenient for us to take advantage of midweek arrivals. We often choose to travel Wednesday to Wednesday, for example.”
The Dubilzigs have visited Divi Little Bay Beach Resort on St. Maarten, which Brenda says is so beautiful, and Aruba, where they enjoy playing golf at The Links at Divi Aruba, the 9-hole golf course surrounding Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort. But they say Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort is still their true home away from home.
“Phoenix has everything you want, without being a huge, touristy spot,” said Brenda. “The beach is right there, the pool is right there, and you really get to know the staff. When we’re here, we love just relaxing, reading, trading stories with the family and going out to nice restaurants.”
Divi Aruba Phoenix’s upscale, chef-driven pureocean Restaurant is a favorite, especially when the Dubilzigs want to dine in and enjoy the sunset right from the beach. When visiting in the fall, the family enjoys watching college football from the swim-up bar at purebeach, the resort’s casual dining restaurant.
“It’s become a family tradition to watch the Michigan-Ohio State game here on Aruba every year,” James said. “Since our children went to the University of Michigan and we live in Ohio, the famous rivalry makes the game an absolute must-see for our entire family, especially on vacation, and the staff at purebeach is always more than happy todevote one of their TVs to the big game.”
