We had a wonderful stay at this resort. The Staff is so friendly and went out of their way to help us with a request. Rooms are beautiful and clean. Not a lot of hustle and bustle but that is what we wanted . It was still very easy to take the shuttle to the grocery or to Willemstead. Highly... More

Hubby and I just spent 10 days at the Royal Sea Aquarium Curacao. We had a wonderful time and thought the staff was wonderful! Could not leave at scheduled time due to storm and the front desk personnel was so helpful getting us another room. One evening we were looking for a good seafood restaurant and Alejandra (Guest Service and... More

We stayed here with another couple, it was their time share trade. We were in the two-bed room that is offered as a "hotel" room online. Very comfortable, and of course with our friends in the other half of the unit we had the living room, balcony, etc. That would not be true if we had not been sharing. That... More

I bought a studio unit back in 2004 and have loved it ever since. When I get to Curacao, it feels like I just got to the family vacation home. The people are always willing to do what it takes to put a smile on your face. I love the quiet beach, and the snorkeling is great. For me, having... More

We chose a villa which was extremely spacious for 5 ladies (master bedroom with king size bed, living room with two murphy beds and another room with two beds, two bathrooms total). We had two balconies facing the Dolphin Academy (loved this view... More

We stayed at the Royal for 4 nights (and at the Hilton for 7 nights)and loved everything about it. It is close to shopping, activities and restaurants and still so serene and private. The kids went to the aquarium every day and it is free to get in while you're staying there. Nice perk! There is one washer and one... More
