We stayed here on a short layover in Curacao. The room was big and clean and the bathroom great. Air conditioning working fine. It took two minutes to walk to the centre of Willemstad. The staff spoke fine English and I don't have anything to complain about.

It was in town. Close to restaurants, harbor, museums, and everything Curacaos capital has to offer. Easy to go by minibus to Mambo beach or other beaches. The receptionist helped us to hire a guide and to hire a car. We had two lovely weeks in Schaloo hotel at Curacao.

It's the second time I visited this hotel and I must say I am very disappointed with the parking. It is listed under amenities that free parking is available. I have rented a car for 2 weeks during my holiday and was not able to park inside sometimes. There are only 4 parking spots. And what really blows my mind... More

Dear guests, First of all I really want to apologize for this experience! The gated park facility is to small for the number of cars we have in times that the hotel is fully booked. We are working on that, But thats too late for you as our guests. And that the employees use the parking places is not going... More

Great central location, very nice clean modern room, friendly and helpful staff and pleasant surroundings. Walking distance to the bus station and we found the local bus to be a great way to get around if you don't want to spend the money on car rentals and are happy to walk a little off the main roads.

Great hotel with lovely staff, right in the city centre of Willemstad. Spacious rooms with every needed comfort. There is a small garden pool, free to use 24 hours a day, which is a great plus. The breakfast is tasty and more than enough per person. Ine, the lobby Manager, can also contact you with great personal guides to lead... More

Thank you very much for your kind and friendly review! We always try to do our best to make every vacation unforgettable for our guests.

First of all , I want to apologize for the bad experience with that "booming "night! I really can not explain why things went the way they did; We didn't act the right way. That's for sure.

Pros: Good location, helpful and friendly staff. Good cost benefit. Our group booked three rooms, and they were very different from one another. One had a complete kitchen and huge balcony and one was a small regular room, but they were all nice. Cons: One of the rooms had a bad smell in the bathroom. Night watchmen wasn't very friendly....

This is a great bed and breakfast as well as a hotel nestled away in Punda overlooking downtown Willemstad. The rooms are tastefully decorated for the price. The service is exceptional and the value is great. The manager is really knowledgable, helpful, and very upbeat to converse with. The location is good and security is exceptional.

Great accommodations. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the floating market downtown and an easy bus ride away from amazing beaches. Rooms have air conditioning and access to a gorgeous pool. The staff was extremely helpful with directions and maps. Rooms are minimalist, but no complaints!

Good place within very easy walking distance of all highlights of Willemstad. Nice, very clean and big room, good bathroom. Friendly and good service. Two things keep this from a 5: the room I was in looked onto a blind wall and was thus a bit dark, and while the hotel has a very nice garden and dipping pool it... More
