We stayed in room 305A&B and overlooked the Dolphin Academy. We got to see the "behind the scenes" trainers working with the dolphins that the public does not usually see. Watched the sea lion show several times and enjoyed it every time. Room was clean, kitchen equipped. Had two pools and a hot tub plus the beach. Rented kayaks. Overall... More

Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The suites have kitchen, and dishwasher. Views are incredible. Restaurant is good to excellent (Augusto), but close by to the Lions Dive, Seaquarium, Curasub, Mambo Beach. Easy to get to Punda and Otro Banda.

We love it here! It is small, low key, and very peaceful. It is not built up or dressy or glitzy. There is on casino on premises. In short, it is just what we want. Agostos restaurant is marvelous and I could and do eat here almost every meal. We are just so happy here!

We are now making our checkout and waiting for the taxi. This has been one of our best choice ever. The hotel is almost perfectly located literally inside the Sea Aquarium of curaçao and that's why you don't have to buy tickets to visit it. In addition if you come here to dive, then the most famous site to do... More

We got an incredible deal on a package to this resort. This resort was beautiful and certainly exceeded our expectations. We were a family of three and we stayed in a one bedroom villa on the second floor. The villa was huge and equipped with a kitchen. The kitchen came fully-equipped; there was nothing missing that we felt we needed.... More

We booked this location last minute. What a wonderful find. We heard that you could have a view of the Sea Aquarium, which is adjacent. So made a request for a "room with a view"!. Our request was honored. The view from the third floor overlooking the Sea Aquarium was breathtaking. We had a full two bedroom Suite. The Suite... More
