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

Awesome place to visit!!!! Staff friendly and helpful. Answered all questions or looked up info on net, booked fish pedicures for us, gave directions to a variety of places, no need for car rental as they have a shuttle to the grocery.The rooms were clean and inviting. Many dining choices within a short walk. Accommodations are fantastic! Both the pool... More

This hotel is right on the water but the beach is less than desirable. Good news is you can walk to the popular BLVD beach. I don't love the idea that keep the dophlins in captivity. The room had a view of the water with a small balcony. The food was very good at the restaurant.

Booked the Resort through an exchange as we had never visited Curacao. From our arrival until our departure a week later, we were totally and pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the resort and its staff. A mix-up had occurred with our exchange, but the staff calmly told us they could handle it and sure enough within minutes they... More

Small, cozy, friendly, easy to get around, staff feels like family. Where else can you go where the manager Estella calls you by name, you get hugs from the security lady Zuly, and David greets you with "Bon Dia" every morning?! We are selling our 3 impersonal glitzy Marriotts in Hawaii and Aruba to get more time here. Love the... More

Stayed a few days at this resort in May, 2015. It's a well kept property and separated by a bridge and walkway making it very safe. It is on the same property as the Aquarium and anyone who stays there gets free access to it. It was a lot of fun with dolphin and seal shows, along with feeding the... More

I just returned from a trip with my friends and we had a great time. The views from the balcony in room 103 were awesome. Good restaurants in walking distance. Loved the pasta from Augustos, the Steak Sandwich at Hemmingways, the skewers at Chill and Grill, the tapas at the Mexican restaurant at the Blvd, and the Pizza place. Never... More

We just got back from a week at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort. The room was wonderfully clean and well taken care of. We had a one bedroom on the first floor facing the pool. At first I was disappointed that we didn't get a room facing the aquarium but as time went on, we were very happy with our... More

I was in this resort for business purposes on the island. I enjoyed the location and the view. The swimming pool is OK and the appartment was good enough. I was schocked to hear the second day that I had to move to another room, because of the time share; they forgot to tell me. But with much help and... More
