For those from the USA, this beach is similar to an east coast boardwalk beach, but nicer. There are plenty of chairs and shade (we went on a weekday) and lots of shops... read more

We had a great time at Mambo. For $3, you get beach access and a chair for a few dollars more. You can also get a chair at the pool along with a bottle of water for $9 and have a server all day. It was a great way for us to spend a day after several days at more... More

Mambo beach is picturesque and so much to absorb. The restaurants are great in food and service, there is a mall to shop,the beach to dream for. The water is great for swimming and the people you meet on the beach are friendly and welcoming. A must place to go when in curacao.

For those from the USA, this beach is similar to an east coast boardwalk beach, but nicer. There are plenty of chairs and shade (we went on a weekday) and lots of shops, restaurants, as well as a beach bar. The beach has an artificial barrier, so the water is not as a rocky as your typical curacao beach. Ate... More

Awesome clean, man made beach but you would never know it. Bring snorkel gear, decent number of fish. $5.00 pp for van taxi with several people. Come early for best chairs, gets crowded. There is little shade unless you stick to the back where the palms are. Even the canopy lounges had full sun at times. Some chairs are very... More

Trylly a nice beach. Plenty of charis and palms so you can get so shade right on the beach. Lots of places to have something to eat and drink ... from sushi to italian. You have to pay a minimal charge for the chair but it worth it. You will have to arrange transportation from downtown because it quite far... More

If you like going to massive pools in Vegas or on a cruise ship this is for you, whereas if you rather experience a tropical beach go somewhere else. This is a pay to enter beach with lounge chairs set up 6 inches apart from one another Cost is minimal a few to 5 bucks. I didn't pay as I... More

It is ok but at the end of the day this could be in any place with a beach in the world. Very touristic, looks like Scheveningen in Holland. Nothing special, not the beach, not the people. Papagayo beach is much more quality!

I visited the Mambo Beach area a few years ago also and enjoyed the laid back grab an ice cold beer, feet in the sand, full of fun loving people with a beach bar feeling - What happened? Did I wake up in Benidorm, Magaluf or Lloret de Mar or indeed a mini bad dream Miami? Indian food, Mexican food,... More

Really amazed by the beach and good facilities. Like a pool, you can stay there forever. Don't go on weekends and the earlier you get there the easier to find some cabanas where you can stay all day long. U$9,00.
