The houses were ok nothing fancy but spacious and clean. The beach and restaurants are at a walking distance. Must say that the water they use for their plant stinks. I think they recicle the water and its very unpleasent. It's not that save since friends enter without being question by security.

The Good: The flat is large and clear, but only at the upper floor (those at the ground floor are dark with a smaller terrace). - The kitchen is convenient with sufficient utensils. - A diving center is located within the resort: Johan and Monique knows perfectly well the diving spots and can propose you taylor-made dives. If you dive,... More

Let's face it, Curacao is not a cheap place to spend your holiday. So if you can find a reasonably priced apartment near the beach, the more you can spend on overpriced cocktails on the same beach. Livingstone is a family-oriented place, with several types of apartments in different price categories. We stayed in a Montana apartment with 3 pp,... More

We stayed at Livingstone for 2 weeks. The small chalets have all the basic needs, fan, aircon, new fridge and TV and a nice swimmingpool. Some people are more service minded than others at the main reception...but I guess you will find that everywhere you go. We didn't want to spend to much un unnecessary luxury so this was a... More

Stayed here for two weeks from 19th October 2012 in a Rif Azul apartment. Large sitting, dining kitchen, bedroom with shower room and a separate toilet, with a full width balcony outside. The accommodation was clean and perfectly big enough for two; four would have found it a bit of a squeeze, even if they were children. No double beds,... More

The good thing about Livingstone is that the accommodation is good, well equipped with everything that you need for a self catering stay. There were no double beds we were told, so just had 2 singles pushed together, with a single duvet each. No double duvets either apparently. You are given a beach pass which is worthless as you have... More

Beautiful private villas are fully equipped. The tiny store close to reception is very convenitent for eggs, milk, etc. Swimming Pools were okay but not that great IMHO. 3-4 min walk to the beach not good when you have little ones. The beach is lovely. The Island is small and ppl are super friendly. I would stay here again, but... More

We stayed in the villa with three kids, aged 2, 3 and 6. We liked the pool area, as it has a big deep pool, but also a large kiddies pool. Both pools are located at the same level. We found the amount of loungers OK, but not all the appartments were booked. They supplied an extra ed for us... More
