I made a mistake thinking it is a good chain of hotels. I was SO disappointed!! I will never book again to any Howard Johnson!!
This hotel in Curazao was a problem from the beginning and every day we faced a new problem. I will list some important points to consider:
*All the rooms smell like "smoking rooms" (also the "non-smoking" rooms!) (we asked to change the first room assigned and we visited 3 more in same disgusting conditions). You can also find the same smell in all the corridors!
*The hotel was under mantenance so some floors were a mess and there were people working on corridors.
*Wi-fi connection free only in lobby and it had poor signal.
*The rooms had just a soft ilumination (it means it was not enough at night!)
*No refrigerators at rooms
*Street noise because of the bridge and because of the restaurants around.
*No shampoo on bathrooms. Just soap.
*No towells for hands. You have just 2 towels for a double room. I had to ask one more every day.
*No plastic courtain in the bathtub, so when you take a shower there were water everywhere in the floor of the bathroom (an innecesary mess).
*One day, we arrived from the beach and we had no hot water in the bathroom and shower! We phoned to the Reception (at 6pm) and she told us that many people were calling telling her the same, but it was too late to call for a mantenance person!!! Unbelievable!
*The tv in the standard room was old fashion and all the channels had bad signal (you cant see a normal image). So, you can't watch the TV.
*The room's carpet was dirty and had spots everywhere (it means they never cleaned it)
*The breakfast was VERY poor.
*The pool was small and not very nice. It also seems dirty.
*The location of this hotel is far from any beach. I think a better place to stay is near the "sea acquarium" beaches.
I will never back to this hotel or any other of this chain. It was a waste of money and a very unconfortable and unpleasant stay!!!
