An average hotel in ideal location in heart of the city, equipped with friendly and helpful staff, will definitely recommend . comfortable bed, the only con is the safe didn't work. Within walking of the major shopping district and restaurants.

We were like 3 or 4 people in the same situation. The lady at the desk told us there were no room left in this hotel like... More

We have stay one night at Curacao before our flight to Bonaire. Our room price was 50$, so price was really good. Hotel location is excellent, in middle of the city. Room was ok, clean but little bit worn out. Wifi works well. Staff was little bit grumpy, but overall all was ok. I could stay here again, when I... More

Using the elevator from the 1st floor to the 6th. Reception is at the 1st floor, getting access to it card is not needed. At the reception you get... More

When you arrive, finding reception is the first challenge, no signs of directions anywhere. Reception is actually upstairs and on day 2 I discovered an elevator from ground level, also well hidden. Lights switch on automatically as you walk along the corridor and switch off behind you (reminded me of the movie Hostel!). Room, bed, etc were clean, air conditioning... More

The San Marco is an alternative to the very pricey resort properties on Curaçao. It is located right in the center of Punda, in a pedestrian-only district. There are many good restaurants within a couple of minutes' walk, including those along the waterway in view of the pontoon bridge. The property is not particularly fancy, but it was clean and...

Just as a note I didn't book this hotel someone else booked it for me. They obviously didn't look at trip advisor before booking the hotel. This place looks nothing like the pictures and they are deceiving everybody. It's not even worth the price that we paid for at a low rate of $69. The beds felt like there were... More

Second time staying there and I truly enjoyed it. Right in the middle of the historical town, San Marco hotel fits right in with a bit of its old world esthetics to add to Punda. Would definetly stay there again!

Nothing fancy about the place. All I needed though was a place to sleep as I went to the beach or scuba diving during the day. No point wasting big bucks on a fancy hotel if all I'm going to do is sleep there. It's close to high end shopping and lots of restaurants. The staff were decent enough. The... More
