Sunscape questions

Hi everyone. A few questions I can't seem to find answers for:

Do they have pool floats? If not can you bring your own?

Do you need a power converter if coming from the US?

Is US currency accepted locally?

Is it safe to walk around outside of the resort?

Is there an email to contact the concierge?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi Dee, thnx for your interest in one of the hotels on our island :)

The hotel has their own pool floats and various other activities all around, and yes, you can bring your own pool floats as well.

You will not need a power converter. The whole island is provided with 110v/50-60herts, and in hotel rooms its standard to also have a 220/210v outlet.

After the local currency, the US$ is the second most used currency used on the island and accepted everywhere, next to the Euro.

The hotel lies at a excellent location, 5 minutes away from the city, and a 100m walk to 3 very nice beaches and a brand new shoppinmall/beachclub build. ( http://www.blvdcuracao.com/ ) It is perfectly safe to walk around.

There is no direct email for the concierge but you can always send an email to info.sucur@sunscaperesorts.com for more info or visit their website http://www.sunscaperesorts.com/curacao

I hope that I have answered all your questions satisfactorily.

Greetings,

Rico

We just returned from the Sunscape earlier this month.

I did not see any pool floats at the resort. We brought our own from home.

You will not need a power convertor.

American currency is accepted everywhere.

We walked down to Mambo Beach there is plenty of shopping there. We also walked to the Sea Aquarium. The resort also has day trips into Wimestead. We also rented a car and went to several different beaches. :-)

HMMM - we never brought either a converter or an adapter. Some of the rooms have limited US style outlets so we bring a strip to be able to plug in our stuff

We always bring our own floats and leave them for the next guest. This is one resort you will regret not having a float if you don't bring (or buy) one. Lovely calm water in front of the resort for floating at sunset with your favorite adult beverage (we love caipirinhas)

Thanks for responding. Great idea about the strip. We already have our floats packed and ready and can't wait to get there. Will definitely try the drink you suggested too!

Hello Cropsis..I am an American from Boston living on Curacao. Check out a company called American Standards. They service Americans and Canadians traveling here...coordinating car rental, airport transfers, etc. I already see you have these services coordinated...however, the " Friends of AM" program can recommend things to do with various tour operators and provide dicounts. Better deals than booking directly at the hotel. It's a VIP service..many include transportation or provide private pick up which will save you lots of money on taxi fare. Taxi are extremely expensive on the island and vary in price per company and charge for extra persons. They are American owned, opreated, but work with alot of local business and registered with the Curacao Chamber of Commerce. You can contact them once you get here to inquire about your excursion/activity discounts and transportation referrals at: 599-9-685-4029. Facebook: American Standards Curacao, Twitter: @ASCC, Email: americanstandardscuracao@gmail.com

Hope you find it useful...Bon Tardi (Good Afternoon)
