“The right mix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our recent stay at Ocean Resort was one of the best vacations I have ever had. The privacy of the condo coupled with the access to the local resorts made for an excellent combination of relaxation and access to shopping, dining or nightlife. This is an ideal location for people who do not want to be stuck within a resort hotel room, yet enjoy some of what they have to offer in amenities, such as the spa, guided trips, concierge services, restaurants.

Do not bother renting a car, unless you are adventurous and plan to explore the island extensively. We didn’t and had no problem in enjoying ourselves or getting around. A taxi to town roundtrip was $30.00, the resort offers a free shuttle to the local grocery store twice a day, there are bus services (which we did not try) and pretty much anything else was walking distance.

The service we received during our stay was excellent and we will return.

“Great vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

We are a couple from New York that stayed in Ocean Resort apartment D-5 for 2 weeks in late March 2013. We really had a great time and strongly recommend apartment D-5 to couples that prefer small, neat, well-equipped apartments over big resorts, overcrowded beaches, gigantic pools, cheesy buffets and too many people. The place is not very spacious and doesn't have the big Jacuzzi bathroom you might find in some resorts, but it has absolutely everything you need, starting with a comfortable bed, modern AC (bedroom only), fast (private) Internet connection, phone, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, parking space and that priceless private terrace and pier.

If you are looking to be entertained and party hard, this is not for you, but if you are seeking to run away from all the noise of your urban life, just to be left alone, relax and adhere only to your very own schedule, you will love Ocean Resort Apartment D-5. Needless to say that Jo and her team were super nice and very well organized, and that we strongly recommend Curacao and especially Hans Pleij's Curious2Dive for scuba diving.

Liked best: The small private deck with direct access to the Caribbean sea is just awesome!
Liked least: The worst I can say is that the AC didn't work when we arrived, but it was fixed quickly - therefore only a minor issue. And one day we had some really noisy neighbors that very much interfered with the otherwise perfectly relaxing atmosphere.

“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Perfect size rental unit for one or two. Quiet area yet close to beaches and activities.
Wonderful outdoor areas make this unit. Jump into the water or watch the dolphin trainings.

“Quality apartment, good for one or two. Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This is a winner. Beats all the hotels. The deck is what makes this the best on Curaçao. Your only risk is that you may have a large loud family in one of the adjacent apartments. I did. Still I would not hesitate to return.

“Great apartment for 2 in Curacao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We stayed at the Ocean Resort D5 apartment for one week in May 2011. After a very tiring flight to the island, the check-in to the apartment was friendly and quick. The apartment itself is very clean and furnished in a modern style. The kitchen is equipped with more than you will need during your stay. But the main reason to stay here is the terrace. It is just beautiful! Not only is the view amazing, the best thing is to jump in the water and start snorkelling in front of the apartment. The best surprise was waking up the first morning - we could see the dolphins swimming in the bassin of the Seaquarium... There was just one downside: Curacao didn't live up to our expectations, so unfortunately we will not return for another retreat.

“PARADIJS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 for a stay in January 2013
Google Translation

Fantastisch appartement voor 1 of 2 personen. Het uitzicht is prachtig op de zee, kustlijn van curacao en de dolfijnen. Elke dag vanaf de steiger gezwommen. Het koraal is zo te bereiken en heb hier fantastisch gesnorkeld. Het appartement is modern en in de keuken was alles aanwezig om lekker 's avonds te koken. Af en toe ook uit eten geweest, o.a. bij seaquarium beach op 5 minuten lopen dus super. Een hele goede locatie, heerlijk rustig maar als je vertier zoekt binnen 5 minuten lopen ben je in de drukte. Wij komen zeker terug.
