I did not stay at the hotel, but I went to have lunch in the restaurant of the hotel. It was maybe one of the best BBQs that I have tasted. Even the sides were delicious. The staff was very very nice and serve like no many at the island. Thank you guys.

I tried to pay for my nights in advance and several times different members of the staff told me just pay tomorrow or when I check out in the end, despite that I insisted I did not feel comfortable with this as I thought staying without paying might be a problem. Then on the 3rd day the manager burst into... More

Rooms are similar to private rooms in a youth hostel - basic with a private bathroom. There was no hot water but the cold comes out lukewarm. Staff don't fawn - we found them genuine and professional which was all we wanted. Most staff speak 2 or 3 languages and will try to help. Free wifi is available in communal... More

I didnt get the impression that this is what they want to do. Besides the lack of good service, the breakfast was really bad.. And you have to... More

Hotel location great! You can walk anywhere in town. Room was basic, clean but nothing fancy. AC working excellent. Safetybox in the room. Hot water ONLY request, but that was no problem for us. Breakfast was basic, and it included room price. Frendly service. If you take bus from airport, you can walk to hotel in less than 5min, so... More

I was walking in downtown Punda on a Saturday afternoon wondering what I would find good to eat. Then there was the smell of delicious BBQ where I begin to follow the smell and it lead me straight to the Academy Hotel Curacao. This is a training hotel/restaurant with daily specials but the best thing is the Saturday BBQ that... More

If you like mosquitos, rock-hard beds, cold water showers, noisy, cramped rooms with faulty wiring, broken TVs and absence of promised WiFi, then this is the place for you. (Man at the front desk said you could get internet if you had Cat5. Right. That works really well with my Kindle Fire or my smartphone.) Could not dial a local... More
