My family and I (4 adults and 1 child) are staying at the Papagayo Beach Resort. I'm a Curaçao native but reside in the US. I haven't visited the island in over 12 years. So, we decided to visit the Papagayo Beach Plaza to have some fun and swim. Beautiful beach with breathtaking views of the ocean! It all went... More

Beautiful resort on perfect place. But just about every night they have music shows going on. LOUD !! Beach is great, although they feature jetski's and things like that. Diving school located next to the resort.

We stayed at this beach resort for 11 days and we had a great stay. We booked a transfer from the airport and everything was taken care for. At check in we got our keys, and they took care for everything. The villa looks great and it's got everything you need. There is a/c at the bedrooms. The main room... More

Very nice resort with friendly and accommodating staff. Our villa was very clean and spacious with modern appliances and furniture. Although only the bedrooms had AC, the gentle breeze was adequate to keep the place comfortable. My only complaint is the voltage in the villa was 220V and although adapters were provided no transformers are available. This should be made... More

My friend and I stayed at the resort for one week with a sea view. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom which worked perfect for us. The veranda was large and comfortable with a nice breeze. Each bedroom had air conditioning. We went to the local grocery store which was within walking distance to pick up food for... More

we rented a luxury villa for 8. Expensive. When we arrived our expectations were met, lots of privacy, everyone has their own bathroom, kitchen is big. Unfortunately during the week we had a few problems, telephone didn't work, wifi was out, a washing machine was not there. The bathroom flooded every time we had a shower. When looking closer u...

We stayed here in beginning of December for a few nights. Please note this time of the year it can rain, but not that havy though. Downside of this period are the mosquitos! :( The park was originally meant as a real-estate project for sales.....but when that wasn't succesfull, the current owners bought the whole project and created the resort....

I enjoyed a weeks stay in the Papagayo beach hotel. In general it was a very pleasant stay, however some points to keep in mind. The rooms located over/ near the lobby are quite noisy with noise from the lobby and the loading bay in the back, the other rooms seem to be better located though. The rooms look great... More

Very nice and stylish hotel at Jan Thiel Bay. Rooms are spaceous and very well equipped with for instance an Illy coffeemaker (additional Illy pads available at the reception ($ 1,75 a piece!)). There is also LED-light in the room that changes now and then from colour to colour. Balcony is great and airco quite when door to balcony is... More
