4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We will be back for sure! The views were stunning, sunsets overlooking the Caribbean Sea were magical. This resort had a great little beach of it's own, was never crowded and had some great snorkeling from the shore. It was close to plenty of great restaurants and had a pretty decent restaurant of it's own (Augusto's). There were also some... More

We stayed in a 1 br with 2 young children and had a very relaxing vacation. It looks like one of the best locations on the island. We enjoyed the lagoon, beach, and aquarium all right there. There are a few restaurants within walking distance. The shuttle to supermarket and Willemstad was convenient. We enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking. We had... More

There were 6 of us that stayed in 2 villas March 2014. We were lucky to have rooms overlooking the aquarium so we got to watch the dolphin shows several times a day. If you stay here, I recommend making sure you face the aquarium. Overall everything was really good. The resort was well maintained, clean, in good repair and... More

Every year my mom and her three daughters take a trip. This year we found a good rate at the Royal Sea Aquarium. We booked the two bedroom two bath unit. It was great. The kitchen recently renovated was great! Having the living room to relax in instead of our usual, hotel room was life changing. The bathrooms could use... More

The place is small but very perfect. You can walk on the beach or take a taxi or their shuttle to town and the grocery store. Everyone is helpful and the host some fun parties during the week. We stayed a Saturday to Saturday and had a blast. This place has it all - pools, restaurants need by and even... More

My daughter & I traveled to the sweet island of Curacao for four night trip to celebrate her sixteenth birthday. I chose this hotel because she wanted to snorkel and I wanted to relax. Both of our goals were met. :O) Upon our late arrival to the hotel at 2200, we were greeted by a very cheerful Stephan who happily... More

Stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort for 3 nights at the end of a business trip to Willemstad. Moved here for fun after being in town during the business part of my trip and this hotel was exactly what I was looking for: quiet, secluded, comfortable, and had great views. Things I loved best: 1) Location on little island/peninsula... More

Room was nice, right over the water and a view of dolphins out front door at the aquarium next door.Only negative that hurt their rating was the microwave kept blowing breakers, even after... More

Wife and I booked directly through Royal Resorts. This is a time share resort but we are not owners nor did we trade through any exchange company. We had booked this trip months ago and paid our deposit (25%) but due to family medical issues, we had to cancel. The resort was very good about that and even though we... More
