I stayed here in April of 2014. Everything was perfect! The room was beautiful, food was good. The Gelato shop is so good! A great place for golf lovers! It is a bit far out, but worth it. I would recommend getting the all inclusive, as you are a bit far out.. so unless you want to drive to a... More

Probably the best hotel in Curacao. 350 rooms in a low-rise setting. An excellent hotel without being opulent. Great service. Superb private beach. If you're thinking of a choice between this and Jan Thiel beach, choose this one. Golf course to take your breath away - literally if you don' t take a buggy. If you don't lose a ball... More

Me and my husband stayed here on our honeymoon and we had such a wonderful time. All we wanted to do was sunbathe, relax, swim, eat and drink which is what we did! The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The hotel offered a good selection of food and drink, entertainment by the beach including a BBQ and dancing,... More

The Santa Barbara Resort is excellent for families with younger kids and couples to really relax and to enjoy the seaside the tranquility of a professionally managed resort. The breakfast is great, service very friendly and helpful. The distance to the major city Willemstad is not a real disadvantage, after a day trip to the city you have seen everything... More

We had a fabulous week in Curacao the first week of December. The resort is beautiful with an amazing location, protected beach and nice rooms. We loved the beds, some of the most comfortable hotel beds we've slept on. Air conditioning worked well and totally enjoyed walking out of our room onto the beach. Staff was friendly and professional, shout... More

We went in early December for two weeks. Because of past reviews, we decided to do all inclusive which we were very happy about! This is mostly because we ate at the Shore Restaurant for 12 of the 14 nights and wouldn't have missed one of them (it would be pretty pricey to pay as you go). It is awesome.... More

This is the review i wish i had read before my holidays. About Curacao: Curacao has a fantastic climate, although it's not the beautiful white sandy beaches island that you think of when you think of the Caribbean. The sea is indeed blue and beautiful, but also very rough. It's also very industrial - from almost everywhere you can see... More

We loved our stay at the SB Beach and Golf Resort. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. Beautiful views of the water, beach, pools, etc. I had a lovely mani/pedi at the spa that was relaxing. My partner loved the golf course and I agree that the views were incredible. The food was pricey in all the restaurants,... More

Overall trip was good but we won't return. My primary complaint is the weak air conditioning in the room. When you visit an island near the equator you expect heat and humidity but you also expect the ability to cool down when in your room. The air conditioner is supposedly limited to 21*C (70*F) but I'm not believing that. Ours... More
