I have been to Curacao many times over the years for both business and pleasure. This year I went to Curacao with the family for an extended holiday. We rented a villa at La Maya Beach without knowing too much about it. Since it's not on or near the beach I was skeptical but let's stop there. This is the ONLY place you should stay in Curacao, unless you are looking for that quick, impersonal hotel stay. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. They were always available whether it was for a restaurant suggestion or to ask a question about the villa. Speaking of the villas, the units are very comfortable and specious with all the necessary amenities. The resort sits on what's called Spanish Water so it's not technically a beach like the rest of the island but it met the needs of our family when we wanted to spend a day at home. I can't say enough nice things about La Maya Beach including the two most important people there. I did suggest a better wifi system but then again this is a holiday location and not intended for daily work activities. I highly recommend it.
