“High potential once finished but allready great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed one week at this newest curacao hotel. They were still in the soft-opening phase which streches out for a couple of month now. The room was very nice, comfy bed, and pull-out leather couch, huge balcony, flatscreen TV, big fridge, fast WiFi, coffee-maker and a lot of storage room. The open bathroom and walk-in shower were very nice. From the balcony you could see the caribean sea and all the way to Willemstad. The hotel itself is very new, spacious, modern and stylish and the personel is very nice and helps where it can. Adjacent to the hotel is a supermarket, a car rental a huge fitness centre and a nice sushi place. To the beach and the famous Papagayo Beach Club it´s only a short walk. We enjoyed our stay very much and would come here again. The whole complex is not completely finshed and I wonder how it will be once it is.

This hotel is approximately 15-20 minutes driving to downtown Willemstad, the central shopping area. The hotel is beautiful and modern and very quiet. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with comfortable beds.
There is a very clean and well stocked grocery store connected to the property which also serves wine beer and liquor. A 4 minute walk will get you to a beautiful beach which is maintained by the property.
There is a learning curve to staying in your room however. Unlike every hotel room in the world that I have ever stayed in, you have to leave the room key in the slot to turn on the lights to your room. Also, in the the shower, there is no door to prevent water from splashing and puddling onto the bathroom floor. The pitch on the shower floor was a bit off. My wife slipped and fell in the bathroom and hurt her leg as a result.
All things considered, it was a very nice stay and we would stay there again.

We have been staying for a week at the brand new Papagayo Beach Hotel. What is a little confusing is that this hotel is NOT the same as the Papagayo Beach Resort, although it belongs to the same owners.

2 wings of this hotel were ready and to be honest; it has great rooms; large enough for us and our 1,5 year old in a baby cot. Nice shower, nice beds, great balcony and all at a reasonable rate. It is directly to the beach with all the amenities of the Papagayo beach resort. Only little negative point that the hotel bar was not ready at the time we visited, but by the time I'm writing this review it should considered done!

Room Tip: Rooms at road side can be a litlle noisier during weekends, but that is also fun to watch from the b...

Fortunatelly we were welcomed very unfriendly by another hotel owner just nearby. So we decided to leave and look for another place. We asked for a room at the Papagayo Beach Resort. There we were told that they have also a promotion in there new hotel, just a minute away. We knew the supermarket in the hotel building, because one week ago, when we rented a house and often went to the supermarket there. The hotel is still not yet fully completed, but there is no noise from the construction side. Because they have a so called soft opening, they had a special rate. As our flight from Aruba was quite early in Curaçao, they had no rooms available yet. But they gave us a bag with beach towels for the Beach Club, just a minute away with bar, restaurant and salt pool. Also a very cool place.

Everything very modern, the rooms have a sofa bed, balcony and walk in shower, white floors, bathroom is also all white. Very friendly staff, also in the Beach Club are children welcome. We are so happy we found this place. One of the better places in Curaçao.
