First, let me start by saying that we were BEYOND excited to get to Curacao and The Santa Barbara for our honeymoon after getting married in October. The reviews of the hotel seemed amazing - especially the sushi and restaurant and staying 8 days in the sun seemed perfect. But, we weren't aware of what was going to happen when... More

Two families, three rooms. One for the kids. Reservations made three months early and they could not allocate the rooms together. Almost one kilometer from the kids!! At the end, they could, but only after we complain and call our travel agent. Why do we have to fight during our vacations to get so simple things in a hotel like... More

After a tough and exhausting year in 2014, I was looking forward to a 12 relaxing and supposedly marvelous days at Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort in Curaçao. After reading all the excellent comments about this beautiful hotel I booked our family vacation trip. All comments were accurate except one, conventions and some big events can turn a real... More

I sadly arrived at the hotel at the same time as the most obnoxious group of Venezuelan Pfizer employees. That's one thing, but the fact that the hotel kowtowed to that group and didn't give a damn about the rest of the employees is where I have issue. And all the other non-Pfizer employees did as well. When a hotel... More

I had a wonderful time! The view was absolutely stunning, the food was great and the service was excellent! Employees were very helpful and absolutely kind, especially Sahir, Vanessa and Eloi. They made our stay even more enjoyable. A big thank you to all of them. Mrs. Henkel from Quebec, Canada.

First of all, we have been to the resort multiple times since the resort opened. The beach and pool are great for kids, the lobby and garden are very nice. The hotel is a bit remotely located on the island and any good place to eat outside the resort is at least a 20-30 minutes drive. The service and overall... More

The golf course and grounds are beautiful. The lobby and grand areas are 5 star, however, the guest rooms are just average. Don't waste your money on the premier ocean view room because you wont get an ocean view...most of the rooms look at the pool or the parking lot..or the canal that the boats use to get to the...

Pros: one of the nicest resort, extremely clean, everywhere you look it is gorgeous but... cons: all inclusive: the fridge in the rooms are empty and the staff suggest on paying and filling it up at the grocery store located at the pizzeria. They charge you for everything. The pizzeria place is not included in the package that is why... More

My husband and I enjoyed our week at the Santa Barbara resort. It is absolutely beautiful and the week we were there was very quiet.
