Lots to figure out in just four short days. The hotel staff, ALL over were exceptional. Always wanting to accommodate. The buffet breakfast was weak in my opinion. Lots of Choices but it's your typical American buffet breakfast. I didn't like it but that's all there is for options for the am. Dinners were good. Their pizza parlor came in... More

The hotel is nice and clean including the rooms and amenities. We had some trouble with the AC but it wasn't terrible. The pool and the man made beach were really nice and we enjoyed them a lot. We were here as part of an event so I can't comment on many things (service, food, etc.) but we had a... More

The resort is first class and is set to take advantage of the views and breezes. Food is overall very good, but not great and everything is expensive. We shared a very good meal with at Shore and hand one drink and it cost $145 US. and at that the portions were small. They are big on buffets, so you... More

Would highly recommend this lovely resort. Just returned home and miss it terribly. The beautiful ocean views, the professional and friendly staff, and the fantastic food will forever stay with me! So much to do, or just relax by the pool, both were well worth it. We stayed in a villa near the golf course and the room was so... More

We had an awesome time. We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday and her 1st trip out of the country. You will need to rent a car to really enjoy Curacao unless you want to just stay on the resort. The staff was super helpful and knowledgeable. From the time you park to the time you pull away, headed... More

Chose Curacao over Aruba this year (2015). We had planned on seeing more of the Island, but couldn't tear ourselves away from the hotel. Hotel restaurant Medi: Medi is the spot for meals, morning noon and night. The staff of Medi are extremely kind and fun. Free coffee in the morning at Medi. Different buffet theme every day.

This is my first time on Curacao, and luckily I'll be staying at 2 different properties. Day 1 at the Santa Barbara was spent by the pool (there are two side by side), at the beach by my room where I watched the sunset, at the restaurant (delicious Mediterranean themed buffet) and in front of the TV watching Game 3...

Stayed there for a Wedding for my best friends! Excellent rooms, great service from all associates. The hotel was once a Hyatt hotel and I was happy to be there as one of their GP members (could earn points). The facilties are well apointed, the beach could be bigger, specially as the Yacht harbour blocks the view. Hotels location is... More

I chose this resort because I don't like hotels that are located right in the middle of everything. This hotel is about 45min drive from the Hato airport and 25 min south of the downtown Willemstad.
