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

I stayed here overnight on my way to Bonaire. The room was clean, the sheets were also clean but dingy. Wake up call was on time and the staff were friendly. The price was about the best I could find. Taxi service from and to the airport was seriously pricy though.

Very friendly staff, good view in our room, it's very central.. nice to spend some days in curacao... the only issue is that there's no beach close to the hotel, but it'll be the same with any hotel located in the town center.

I had the unfortunate experience of staying here for one night on business. This is far and above the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Upon checking in and seeing the room I requested another one straight away, the woman behind the desk didn't seem impressed, made no attempt to apologise and barely communicated, it was like speaking to...

This hotel is ideal for people doing business in the city. If you are going for a vacation or a special occasion forget it! Its a place to rest and thats all. The breakfast sucks. You only get cheese, ham and bread. When I requested eggs, I was told that I will have to pay extra for them. $1.50 each.... More

Stayed here with work with 3 other colleagues. It would appear the higher the floor the better the room as my colleagues room on the floor below was average to say the least and the other colleague on the floor below that was terrible. My room was acceptable and didn't have too many complaints but the other rooms were bad.... More

So we stayed at this hotel for the location. And is in the middle of the tourist town. We spent two nights. The rooms smelled and were dirty. The safe in two of the three rooms we booked were broken and were not fixed even after we said something. Did I say my room smelled...gross. Staff was pleasant.

This was the third and last time am staying in San Marco thinking it would improve but they just keep getting worst. Same cheap breakfast every morning, cheese, sausage, only 2 stale slice bread and dry leftover sweetbread made a week ago and when I ask for another slice of bread i was embarrassed by one of the cooks saying...
