“Great location disapointing accomodations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Wonderful friends of ours treated my husband and I to a quick getaway. We are all (hospitality) business owners in Aruba who needed some R n R..
They chose the Plaza based on its location and reviews found on trip advisor.
The location was great, walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, and the floating bridge. The hotel was run down, our room was very clean and I give credit to our maid considering what she had to work with. Our TV was old and small. We had to stand in front of it in order for the remote to work. The bathroom only had 1 very small shelf to hold toiletries. We had to request a blow drier. The hallways were dark. The pool needs to be re done, tiles missing and cement chipped on the steps and bottom.
At check in the front desk staff was not very helpful. We were given 1 room key and told that we had to drop the key off in a drop box before leaving the property. I have never heard of anything like that before. The casino was old and dingy. I could not find the "sports bar".
Our bartender for happy hour was very nice and helpful.
This hotel has a lot of potential to be a great property but unfortunately the owners have allowed it to become run down. I read in reviews that the hotel was recently remodeled but I did not see any evidence of that unless the reviews were written in the 70s. We had a great time in Curacao but we went out of our way to spend our days outside of the hotel property. .

The Plaza Hotel is the best location on the island. Historical hotel was recently remodeled. I had a great room with a beautiful view. Loved the casino and sports bar. Plenty of things to do: diving, shopping, exploring or just relaxing at the pool. Met the owners who were very friendly and helpful. Overall great experience.

A great vacation place! We had a tower room and the view was spectacular! The room was recently remodeled and was very clean. Throughout the hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great food.

Plaza hotel & Casino Curaçao was conveniently located. Walked to great shopping. Walked to the end of the plaza and excellent diving right off the beach. Food was great and what a view from our room. Room was clean and staff helpful. Will definitely stay here next time.

As I said before, location brings me back to this hotel!!! The pool has been redone and it is amazing. The plaza added a sports book which was wonderful to bet and watch the basketball finals. Internet is available in lobby and by pool....not very strong in room, but wasn't worried because I was on vacation. They also added the dive shop and was impressed with my dive trip!!! Everything in one location, peaceful dinners at variety of restaurants, amazing sunsets. All the improvements are worth price, can't wait to see what next visit brings. Thank you plaza hotel for the relaxing accommodations!

I've stayed here 3 times now and I know the rooms could use an update but location is wonderful. Right at the floating bridge, great views and staff friendly. Angelo is amazing....anything you want to do snorkel, motor scooters, bus tours Angelo will get it together for you. The restaurant has great food....wonderful breakfast buffet. Would stay again!

The Plaza Hotel is located in a beautiful spot on the island. Everything you need is in walking distance, which isn't a struggle because of the scenery. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are slightly outdated, but clean. The restaurant is delicious, but that doesn't make up for the old structure of the building. Although, you can tell that they are trying to update the building. Renovations take time, and they have begun to do some. The staff expresses great hospitality, and the owners are great, you can tell they want their guests to enjoy their time in Curacao.
