This hotel is centrally located between the marina and main street. The main shopping street down town Oranjestad. An upscale mall is part of the hotel complex. The main street area is currently at the final stage of a major renovation but is going to be absolutely beautiful. This did not bother our stay at all. The opposite happened; can't wait to be back next year to see the 'new' Main Street :).
The hotel has everything you need and expect from an upscale hotel. Friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the rooms and property struck me. The separation between the 'adults' only and 'general' access pools and beaches is something major resorts can learn from.
You have to try out the spa!
Their private island is a winner. However, it's very close to the airports main runway so you will hear planes take off and land.
Just loved it and recommend it to anyone!
