We stayed at the MVC the first 2 weeks in June having chosen it after reading all the good reports on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed for the following reasons:
Excellent wifi (no connectivity problems whatsoever for 2 weeks)
Excellent air conditioning
Very friendly and helpful staff
Balcony overlooking sea
Great location across road from beach
Sun loungers and beach towels supplied free of charge
The Continental breakfast ok and Tulip restaurant good and reasonably priced
Check out was early (10am) but a hospitality room was available for shower before leaving for the airport, and luggage was stored safely at reception
Bus stop right outside door – the hotel is situated midway between Palm and Oranjestad.
We arrived ‘after hours’ when reception was closed, but an envelope was left with the restaurant staff with instructions and key.
Only slight downside was our safe was very unpredictable – it sometimes took over 40 attempts at the PIN to get it open (we did report this fault, and maintenance quickly came to fix it – but to no avail!) – but this certainly did not mar our impressions of this great little hotel.
