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

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
