“Best Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Ive stayed at the Plaza and must say its the best location.
Th room needs some upgrading but the service was good. The food is excellent; breakfast is just awesome, breakfast chef he is just adorable.
I would recommend to my friends, and the rates are fine.. Forgot to mention, walking distance to the floating bridge, shopping areas and all other restaurants.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large nd sunny indeed with a great view of the Caribbean sea.

We travel to Curacao for two days. And we choose the hotel for it's location and reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel is very outdated. The owners needs to remodel it and fast. At the front office the staff is not so friendly. They told us to leave the room keys in the box. I never heard of that before. The bathroom is very outdated. The faucet in the bathroom was leaking the whole night. The air-condition was making noises. Towels are very old in the bathroom. When they came to clean the room they took the towels and didn't replace them. Front office told me that they will replace them after 5' o clock. That is no service!! I had to take a bad and there was no towels to step on when I got out of the bathroom. And the hotel charge above a $ 100 a night.I felt that I had been ripped off.

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!
