Meet our featured President’s Elite member for this issue, Roseanne Lavalle from Wilmington, North Carolina. During a vacation last April, Roseanne became a Member of the Divi Vacation Club, converting her traditional Divi vacation ownership weeks to Pure Points. She travels multiple times a year to Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, most often bringing a group of friends along with her, so she was looking for more flexibility.
On one of Roseanne’s recent trips to the resort, we sat down with her to learn why she loves Divi Aruba Phoenix so much—and why the Divi Vacation Club fits her needs.
“Quite simply, I wanted more weeks and more flexibility,” Roseanne says. “ The points system lets me extend my vacation as long as I want. I can come back in different seasons as well as return for my home weeks.”
On this most recent trip, we found Roseanne traveling with her best friends, all hailing from the U.K. “With Pure Points, I can also adjust the size of my unit based on how many friends are joining me,” Roseanne says. “I usually travel with two or three friends, but this time I have eight people with me. I love showing them around!”
Roseanne first became a part of the Divi family after taking a presentation at Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort in 2014 with Francisco Tromp, one of the many professional membership executives at the resort. He continued to check in with her on each of her return trips to make sure she had everything she needed. “Listening and reviewing how Roseanne planned to use her ownership in the future helped me steer her towards a Divi Vacation Club membership,” explains Francisco. “The flexibility of traveling any time, mid-week or weekends, being able to add nights for a longer stay and varying the unit size she needed—as she likes to have guests—all fit in very well with her plans.”
Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort is Roseanne’s home away from home. “When I first came here about three years ago, it immediately felt like home. I can’t get enough of this place,” she says. “ The whole staff is so personable. They truly care about the owners, members and guests.” Whenever she’s on Aruba, she loves snorkeling, shopping and just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful ocean view at Divi Aruba Phoenix. “I can’t thank Francisco enough for helping me enjoy years of amazing vacation experiences.”
