“Friendly atmosphere and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had a fantastic time at Jan Kok Lodges! Our apartment had a view on the beautiful surroundings and the flamingo lake. You don't find Jan Kok near the popular touristy places like Mambo Beach or Jan Thiel, but you find it on the countryside of Curacao and near the most beautiful beaches of Curacao, Cas Abou, Porto Marie and Daaibooi! A car is a must and Jan Kok Lodges offer these, which is perfect!

Because of the time difference we woke up at 7am everyday and enjoyed the view with a nice cup of coffee, the singing birds and the sound of the roosters of the farmers around Jan Kok. Our apartment was simple and clean and had all the things you needed to enjoy our stay. It's possible to cook your own meal, but why do that, there are enough restaurants to have a nice dinner in Willemstad (20/30minute ride) or on the road to Westpunt.

I would recommend this place to everyone who don't want to stay near touristy places and who don't bother to ride 5/10 minutes to escape to the most beautiful beaches of Curacao. What else do you need then a nice and clean place to stay, a fantastic view, great owners and 30 degrees everyday.

Thanks Frederieke and Jeroen!

I'm very glad we chose Jan Kok Lodges for the time of our stay in Curacao, and I will totally recommend it.
Location is very good, in the central part of the island, with two gorgeous beaches just 5 mins away by car. Yes, you need a car on the island, and Jan Kok Lodges offers great deals on that.
The apartment we rented had a beautiful panoramic view from our little terrace. There you can enjoy your morning tea while listening to birds, roosters, and even goats at times :) This place is total peace.
Kitchen has everything for you to be able to make your own meals (besides the products of course, but there's a grocery store very close). That's important, because it's not easy to find a good food place on the island (unless you are in Willemstad), and of course most of them are overpriced.
The apartment is simple and clean, and for an extra penny you can have and ac and hot water in the shower. Don't be discouraged, if you really need one of those- it is super cheap.
A very pleasant family runs this business, and they are really making sure you are having everything you need. Fredericka speaks fluent english, and was very helpful all along. She met us at the airport when we arrived and dropped us off at the time to leave, so we had no worries whatsoever.
And to resume- the price for everything Jank Kok Lodges offers, is more than reasonable. We couldn't be happier.
Thank you Jan Kok Lodges! Greetings from Texas :)
