I stayed here twice in a period of 10 days. At first there were a few minor admin issues, but that was partly my fault as I had to change my plans slightly about 2 weeks before arrival, but this was quickly sorted out. Staff are friendly, helpful and have a good sense of humour. The rooms are big, bright,... More

The room is very basic. Even though online booking site says "Room opens up to a balcony, has memory foam mattress and hair dryer" they only have Two rooms with balcony and bathroom does NOT have a dryer. I don't know where "memory foam mattress" idea even came from - don't ask. When I asked at the front desk the... More

Good value for the price, but nothing too exciting about it. It is clean. Great location! In the center of Otrobanda. They do not have regular cleaning room service all the time. They give blue towels that are ripped. The room is small feels like an European hostel.

Just stayed here one night. It is different, clearly an individual hotel rather than some chain. So if you do not want to spend tons of money and can handle a laid back atmosphere, I can recommend this place. Pros: * very attentive staff * nice big and very clean rooms * good bathroom * good a/c * conveniently located... More

New owners are renovating the old Pelican hotel. The new building is very nice, the rooms are very modern, tad small, but still very nice. Good AC and flat screen tv. The secure box is too small for a normal laptop, it is more for ipads and documents. Service is really nice and well the location is great is like... More

I settled on the Wave since I wanted to be able to walk around the main downtown of Willemstad. Upon arriving at the hotel, I started to have second thoughts about staying here since it shared the property with a really run-down hotel called the Pelikaan. I started to uncomfortably remember my cab driver's warning about not wandering around the... More

We tried to book this hotel online but did not receive any response. Since it was Christmas we assumed they were full and booked another hotel. Then we saw the charges on our credit card (double the amount we had even requested) from Wave Hotel. When we spoke to the manager they tried to say it was our fault and... More

We stayed in a large new (or renewed) room with a little balcony facing the hotel reception and parking lot. Bed was comfortable and A/C was very nice. The breakfast is available in four different combo options and is served in a very simple cafeteria across the reception. Wi-fi didn't work the first day of our stay, but the others... More
