It seems that every villa has a different owner, so also different furniture. Clean villa inside, but outside not clean at all (dirty windows, piled garbage). We had a big issue with the phone. Livingstone had removed all power supplies for the phone, so this could not be used. When I had a medical emergency, they refused to give me... More

As a consultant my work takes me all over the globe. This has been the most exotic location that i have worked. Considering, i have mined iron ore on Mars, dug for diamonds on our Moon.....i'm kidding!! What can i say, there are some downsides (lack of bath mats, no AC in the main area of the apartment) but hey,... More

We have stayed several times at Livingstone Jan Thiel in a pool side apartment, and we love the atmosphere in the park, the beautiful garden, the rectangular pool for our early morning swim sessions, the beach and supermarket at walking distance, and the bus stop in front of the park. Although the bathroom and kitchen facilities are somewhat outdated, the... More

I was not in the Resort. We had some drinks on Saturday. We started with the happy hour and stayed for hours near the Zanzibar. Awesome ambiance. Its a pity that the acoustics were so bad that you couldn't hear the vocals of the live band. Was very difficult to enjoy the music. Very friendly staff.

Rented a Lagun apartment at Livingstone just a footstep away from Jan Thiel Beach. The service was great. Free access to the beach. Free high speed wifi. The apartments were very clean and roomy and the view from the balcony amazing. Dive shop on the premises. Small grocery store down the street, small casino and great restaurants on the beach...

Overall impression, not great. From check in to departure, the staff treated us pretty much like an annoying interruption of their personal time. The property is also showing its age. The shower in our 'bungalow' was old, tiny and inconvenient. The drains throughout were not working well. The living room looked like it had furniture missing, but the beds were... More

Not the best visit, Jan Thiel is to be described as NL city, not very diverse but if you're looking for a true NL visit among 'your own' this is the place to be! I prefer a bit more mix with local people and loved my last visit in January at the Renaissance. The apartments are ok & spacious, nice... More

Overall the room was nice and the grounds well maintained. The bar/restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. The two complaints were the front desk staff who seemed to really care less about their job let alone helping customers. The other issue was the AC in the main room wasn't working which the staff advised that is the way it is... More

We reserved an ocean view room and while we could see the ocean from the house there wasn't much of a view. We could catch a glimpse of the ocean through the trees. The rooms are nice. Kitchenette (no oven) with large living area. Bedrooms are smallish, especially considering the two twin beds in each room put together to make... More

Perfect location to have a relax stay at Curacao. Close to sea, pick up for bus and supermarkt. Nice pool and garden. Basic houses but we did not need more because we were mostly outside. Staff at restaurant could be more friendly and let the people feel they are enjoying there work. Food was good at the restaurant
