We had a great waterfront view from our nice, big balcony and easy access to the small beach and canal outside our door. The rooms are nicely furnished, roomy, and clean with all the typical stuff you need. The best part about this place is its location. It's next the Sea Aquarium Beach and the Sea Aquarium, there's shore diving... More

Just wanted to share our excellent experience at the resort the week of 9/7-13, 2014. Due to out of service aircraft with American Airlines we did not arrive to the resort until 9/8. We had friends, however, that arrived the night before. As soon as I knew of our predicament I immediately phoned the resort so that they would be... More

We are wrapping up our second visit to royal aquarium. The one bedroom is big. I love the large porch. We were on the ground floor facing the pool. The beach is wonderful and we can easily go between the resort beach and Mambo beach, which is also very nice. The new boulevard area at mambo beach is really nice... More

We really enjoy the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort. It is not small, but it is not large either. The rooms are spacious and well adorned. They have wonderful views of the ocean or the sea aquarium - each are special! The property is well maintained and the staff is quite cordial as well as excellent in their daily functions. Food...

The Royal Sea Aquarium and resort are right next door. Both are a wonderful experience. Johnathan is a great guide, very informative and helpful. The dolphin show is full of love. Snorkeling is pretty good right off the beach which is very convenient as is the restaurant Augustinos which is a good value with a lovely view. This time we... More

We just returned from a fabulous trip to Curacao and stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort. We did an exchange through Interval International for a 2 bedroom unit. We contacted them right before we arrived and requested a certain location and they bent over backwards to accommodate us. We were thrilled! This was our second stay at this resort.... More

This was a great place to spend family vacation. We had a 1 bedroom unit and it was perfect for four. You are no more than 25 yards from the ocean and every view is ocean view. Do not be scared off by any poor reviews, we have been all over the Caribbean and this place stands tall. The only... More

Property is not well maintained! Check-in was NOT professional, friendly or informative. This is a timeshare. Its made clear it is a non-profit resort and not a hotel. No amenities, except badly maintained pool. Had various maintenance issues - never resolved. Has a restaurant on property that would allow charges to room. Only thing going for this property is the... More
