The location is good . The room is comfortable . If these are all that matters to you , it's really a good place to stay. But we do not consider reasonable to have cockroach in our Villa . I killed one, but two more appeared . And we asked for a late check out and I had a good... More

This hotel is exactly what we needed and expected. We had a 1 bdr with amazing view of the ocean and dolphins. 5 minutes walk from shops and restaurants on Mambo Beach and Cabana Beach. The only thing that I suggest is not to eat at this hotel. Their breakfast is expensive and not so good. There is the Lion's... More

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.
