I stayed here for (unfortunately only) 4 nights right after the Curacao North Sea Jazz, after first staying in the Hilton. What a difference! Yes, it's a bit far from the main tourist spots of Curacao, but that also gives it its charm. A bit of a drive on the great landscape of the Santa Barbara area, with some great... More

I LOVED this place! We originally we’re booked at a place on the west side of the island. However a week into our vacation we checked out early (even though we were paid through the week) and moved to this resort on the eastern side of the island. We wanted peace and quiet yet still have access to modern conveniences... More

When we arrived, our toilet was not flushing. We reported it and were told they knew about it and were fixing it. That was yesterday and we still have a nonflushing toilet. After five calls to the front desk and demanding a new room, they finally moved us.

I stayed at this hotel for business but I would definitely return for leisure. The rooms and views are incredible. The staff was very professional and friendly. Pros are the pool which is large with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The landscaping is beautiful and lush. Room service and food at hotel was very good. There's live music but everything... More

Hotel staff top tier. Hotel was immaculately clean Was able to do a give back through the hotel to a school in need. Must stay here if in curaçao. It's about a 25-30 minute drive into the main area but it's worth it I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Only down side was the internet fee outside of the great room... More

The Santa Barbara Resort has become one of my all time favorite destinations. I travel for leisure, business and plan group business and although it was only a short 4-night getaway, it was one of the most relaxing long weekends in years. I have traveled throughout the Caribbean so I have a good basis to compare.The first impression was amazing,... More

My husband and I spent four days at the Santa Barbara resort last week. We had been here a few years ago for a longer trip and loved it. On this trip to Curacao we wanted to change it up and started our trip at the Marriott in Willemstad. Bad move! While it is closer to the city it was... More

I stayed at the resort with my girlfriend for five days. The service was impeccable upon arrival and the resort was in pristine condition. The beaches/pools are great and the grounds are beautiful. The breakfast buffett was spot on every day. The resort is a bit of a drive from the city center, but it is a perfect oasis to... More
