We had the most perfect holiday ever, largely thanks to the various hotel staff, who continuously do their best to give everyone a great experience. I literally have nothing negative to say about this destination. If you are thinking of booking this hotel and you are reading reviews to confirm your choice, look no further and book it right now!... More

What a great place to stay! The local staff are friendly and ready to help, anytime. We had a pleasant sea view room. The resort is situated at the Southeastern part of the island and has its own private beach. The ambiance of the other guests can be described as relaxed and lively, but somehow serene. There were families with... More

Overall experience was 4.5/5. Rooms and accommodations were superb, staff friendly, buffet food was very good, splash bar excellent, Shore restaurant wonderful! Quite possibly the best food we've had at a resort in 7 years of travelling. Water from the tap is drinkable- no issues. The all-inclusive is relatively new at this resort- Italian restaurant was not included, tennis requires... More

The Santa Barbara Resort experience looks and feels lovely despite being removed from the main touristy activities of the Willemstad capital and port for the island. Unless you are renting a car or taking hotel shuttles or cabs or buses, you will be pretty much staying at the resort since there is not in the immediate vicinity. After booking a... More

The hotel grounds are beautiful. The staff is friendly. The rooms are nice but noise level from other rooms was high. Not enough to outlets for US electric items. Only 2 per room. Not many Americans stay at this resort. The Shore Resturant is a joke! Manhattan prices with no regard for food allergies. Having a dairy allergy and specifically... More

We were at the Santa Barbara Golf & Beach Resort in mid January for a conference. We were staying 7 days...the rooms were extremely comfortable and spacious, had a great view of the water from our balcony and were very close to the main pool and 2 different restaurants. Food at ALL of the restaurants was impeccable and the service... More

located on a nice part from curacao is this special hotel...far from the noise. Especially for people who like a relaxed Holliday. We only stayed 1 week but definitely come back for more Santa Barbara experience.

Great golf resort. Old Quarry Golf Course a hidden gem. Fabulous staff and service. A bit quiet in the evenings. Excellent SCUBA dive shop. Good rooms. Clean and well maintained. Good food, with great desserts.

Wow, I can't believe how amazing this resort was. The grounds were beautiful and well kept, the rooms were beautiful with amazing views, and the food was absolutely brilliant. The staff was extremely friendly especially my new friends Jaymy and Rolly at the Splash bar and Erliza at the Medi bar at night. Even the marina/Boca 19 staff were super... More

This resort is top notch, along with the food being excellent. The staff is all very friendly, funny and accomodating. Jayme and Rolly at the pool bar are the best! Erliza at Medi bar is also a delight!
