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

A Summary — with the caveat that what's "pro" and "con" for some is not so for others: PROS: 1. Great location on the island – not too isolated but also not crowded and not noisy; not difficult to get into the main town of Willemstad or to go food shopping, either by rental car or by the free shuttles...

This is a small resort a little offthe beaten track. Assuch it has minimal resort like facilities. However, it also has poor room facilities as well. We exchanged a Studio Suite at the Westin in Maui through Interval International ,for what we assumed would be a similar studio in Curacao. Interval rates this as being in their highest category (...

We loved the front desk people! We paid the 'going rate' for this time of year. We were quoted a 'kitchenette' we didn't even have a kitchen sink. So, we had to do dishes in the bathroom sink. The kitchenette had a coffee pot, but you needed to go get your own coffee. There wasn't a small stove top.. Just... More
