If your intentions are having a drink or a small snack near to the pier, this is your place. Theres around 6 restaurant-pubs where you can have a drink and relax using the internet they have. Honestly, the internet service isn't good in any of them. If you want to have nice internet, go downtown crossing the bridge or taking... More

We were in port as a part of our cruise. Our ship was docked at the Mega Pier and on the way to the swinging bridge, we walked through the Rif Fort. The old fort has been incorporated into a outdoor mall area with shops, restaurants, and bars. On our way back to the ship, we stopped to spend some... More

As we exited the cruise ship, this was basically what we had to pass through to get to the bridge, Punda and Otrobanda areas. Which wasn't bad. It was very nice and clean. However, even for as modern as it was, I happened to like the historical aspect of it. Great atmosphere! Would've liked to tour the little museum they... More

Nice atmosphere and great place to just relax and handout. Shopping is available. There is the historical monuments still in place. Nice view of the waterfront, the bridge and Punda from the Fort.

Nice place, appears to be maintained by the Renaissance property which makes it first class. Nice place to walk around and check out the views of Punda & Fort Amsterdam.

We enjoyed Riffort so much, we had to return and visit it again! Fun little shops, restaurants and the view from the fort wall are worth seeing. We sat at Anchor Bar and Grill for a cool, island drink and watched ships come into the harbor. Fun!

Riffort is a newer upscale shopping and restaurant area created for tourists within the walls of an old fort. It doesn't have the authentic Curacao feel and doesn't offer much of a history. However, the people who visit Riffort Village likely come for the modern conveniences, restaurants, shopping, hotel, and movie theater. I like the gritty authentic parts of Punda... More
