I cannot say enough about the staff, facilities, amenities and overall experience my fiance and I just had at the Hyatt Regency Curacao. The check-in at the airport, which included ice-cold water bottles and cold towels, was first class. The property introduction we got from Rufi (who helped us out numerous times during our stay, always remembering our name!), the... More

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! We'll be sure to tell Leah, Karina, and Justina how much you enjoyed their service. Great recommendation about the shuttle.

Very nice hotel with two nice restaurants, although I wouldn't advice anyone to go for the All Inclusive program. Both restaurants serve some very nice wines and cocktails. Also the breakfast of a good quality. I would advice you to rent a car and visit some restaurants outside the hotel, most restaurants take between 15-30 min drives (but it takes... More

From the moment that we arrived in the Hato airport the Hyatt staff bent over backwards to make sure that we were taken care of.

First trip to Curacao. The resort is beautiful and well placed in a very secure area. The resort is not complete, but they have done a good job of disguising the areas that aren't complete. The sun is intense, so overdo it with the sunscreen, you won't regret it. The dive/snorkel trip availability right on the resort was a great... More

Typically we like hotels that are no higher than a palm tree, and focus on the higher end. I think we are very well travelled throughout the Caribbean, and since we... More

My wife and I just spent a week at this Hyatt. We were originally booked for 5 nights, but American Airlines cancelled our flight out, so we were "forced" to stay an additional two nights. This one year old Hyatt is just beautiful. Everything is brand new, and the service is very good. If you are looking for a typical... More
