My husband and I traveled with our young adult kids during Spring break to this amazing Island Resort and had a fantastic trip. The staff was simply wonderful and welcoming. As soon as we walked into the lobby to check-in we were presented with smiles and Island drinks, our rooms were spacious, comfortable and the views were perfect. There was... More

Bitter sweet experience with the hotel when we discovered back home that they charged for the security deposit of the car rental. We were everyday busy at a Doctor Symposium. We are still waiting for Management to get back to us. BUMMER!

This is a very beautiful resort that I would recommend to everybody. The check-in was fairly fast considering that a whole bus came in at the same time. While waiting in line for the check-in we were offered a blue curacao liqueur/lemonade drink that was a sign for other good things to come. The resort is very well maintained, rooms... More

Tucked away on this secluded resort - you feel like you have stepped into your own private retreat. The room was definitely a 5 star rating: great bed/pillows/sheets/showers, etc. The gym had a large selection of new weight training/workout machines. With 2 great pools & a soft sand beach - there was plenty of room, we never felt 'crowded'. The... More

This review won't reinvent the wheel. I can't really add anything that hasn't already been said. The property is beautiful - the nicest looking hotel on the island (certainly compared to your two other options for all-inclusivity - Renaissance & Sunscape), beautiful grounds & landscaping, great gym, great service, nice beach, lovely pools. We had nothing but wonderful service. I... More

Santa Barbara is a beautiful resort. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. We sat out on our patio/balcony every evening! The food was good...a little sparse at lunch at Medi. Shore restaurant was outstanding! We sat on the edge of the patio with a fabulous view of the ocean and sunset.... More

You won't find a more idyllic spot with a beautiful beach, gorgeous grounds, lovely pools and picturesque views. The staff are friendly and approachable and spare no effort to ensure your every need is satisfied. Wonderful food and lovely rooms. Excellent place... More

Distance from the airport: 40 min. This hotel/resort is not a walking distance anywhere; you need to have a car or take a taxi in order to leave the resort. The resort provides a shuttle to Willemstad ($22 round trip per person) Grounds: Stunning, very clean, beautiful layout had a very relaxing and peaceful feel to it. Weather: During out... More
