We stayed in BayBay just one night. Our teenage girls had one bedroom and we had the other - the living rooms were connected so our two halves of the house became one whole. Very comfortable. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was nice because the house didn't get much breeze. The pool is lovely. Great place for kids (teenage... More

We visited this resort about 4 years ago, it was very nice and clean. Now we are far from happy with this resort, - Reception and staff are not happy with their work. - There are no clean towels everyday. - Sometimes it takes 30 minutes to get a drink from the bar because of not enough or lazy staff....

The bathroom had an odour of mold that all four of us could smell (could not see any actual mold though). We also got a notice that they would change the closet during our stay, we asked them to do so on the day after the scheduled day. Imagine our surprise when we come back from the beach to find...

The resort is quiet and family-friendly. The guests seemed to be mostly from the Netherlands, many with kids/grand kids. Several of them translated what my Dutch-speaking 3 year old granddaughter was saying to the other kids in the kiddie pool. The facilities (reception area, pool, restaurant, etc.) are attractive and generously proportioned for the size/population of the resort. The rooms... More

I loved staying at jan thiel livingstone resort. Right next to the nice zanzibar beach location at the most beautiful bay on curacao. Tropical plants and quiet island life is best enjoyed on this safe haven on Curacao

The houses were ok nothing fancy but spacious and clean. The beach and restaurants are at a walking distance. Must say that the water they use for their plant stinks. I think they recicle the water and its very unpleasent. It's not that save since friends enter without being question by security.

The Good: The flat is large and clear, but only at the upper floor (those at the ground floor are dark with a smaller terrace). - The kitchen is convenient with sufficient utensils. - A diving center is located within the resort: Johan and Monique knows perfectly well the diving spots and can propose you taylor-made dives. If you dive,... More
