Normally I'm the kind of person that only reads reviews but doesn't feel a need to add my own opinion. In this case I like to make an exception as the hotel deserves it. Before my 6 night stay I had read some not so positive reviews but still decided to give it a try. I felt so happy we need! Not a moment we regretted chosing Kura Hulanda. The hotel setting is beautiful. Historic houses brought back to life. No room is the same and each corner brings a new surprise. The hotel is an attraction in itself. Our house was near the sculpture garden. It was well maintained and very spacy. The historic feeling continues inside although with some modern touches such as flatscreen tv, airco, fridge and tea making facilities. The hotel has two nice swimmingpools. The location of the hotel is excellent. Using the exit at the Kura Hulanda museum side (also worth a visit) it is a two minute walk to the famous floating bridge and there are plenty of restaurants near by. There is also an option three times a week to use a free shuttle to the Kura Hulanda resort at the Westpunt where you can use their private beach. Getting there is a 40 minute drive which also gives you the opportunity to see a bit more of the island. It was not very busy during our visit but the hotel definitely deserves better!
Points of attention for the hotel staff: putting a basket with towels near the pool so that you don't need to search for someone, check and refill tea bags in the room. Breakfast was not included and with $25 a bit too expensive in our view. And yes, there were indeed some leaves in the pool, but on a windy island like Curacao that is hard to prevent and we saw also cleaning attempts, so not a big issue.
