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!
