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

Let's face it, Curacao is not a cheap place to spend your holiday. So if you can find a reasonably priced apartment near the beach, the more you can spend on overpriced cocktails on the same beach. Livingstone is a family-oriented place, with several types of apartments in different price categories. We stayed in a Montana apartment with 3 pp,... More

We stayed at Livingstone for 2 weeks. The small chalets have all the basic needs, fan, aircon, new fridge and TV and a nice swimmingpool. Some people are more service minded than others at the main reception...but I guess you will find that everywhere you go. We didn't want to spend to much un unnecessary luxury so this was a... More

Stayed here for two weeks from 19th October 2012 in a Rif Azul apartment. Large sitting, dining kitchen, bedroom with shower room and a separate toilet, with a full width balcony outside. The accommodation was clean and perfectly big enough for two; four would have found it a bit of a squeeze, even if they were children. No double beds,... More
