I had stayed at the Royal Resort in Curacao 10 years back was so happy to come back again!!! Actually even better :) The staff helped make the trip...wether it was a room facing the dolphins everyday so my daughter & mom could enjoy from the Balcony, preordering groceries upon arrival since we had a late flight, making reservations at local restaurants or calling the driver Guido to pick us up & take us wherever we wanted - it was flawless & I thank you all!
The Resort itself is truly a GEM!!!! The pool is lovely to swim all day hang & watch Sunsets in the evening.
My favorite beach, hands down, was Jan Thiel & we rented a covered bed at Papagayo Beach Resort for $20.00US all day!!! The beach was so great for my daughter. No waves, no rocks or seaweed, easy entry...My mom loved relaxing in the shade & our waitress took great care of us. At nighttime we roamed around to the infinity pool & had dinner in the sand...A perfect day!
So many great things to say about the entire island...
