I chose to stay at the Marriott mainly because we had a great experience with the company during our anniversary trip to Curacao back in January of this year. I must say that I was glad that we stayed here. Everything about our five night stay was terrific. Starting with the hotel staff that was amazingly friendly and helpful. The gentleman at the front desk, Alex, made our early check in a pleasure. The room was sparkling clean and comfortable, the view from the patio door was not great but for the rate we paid it was understandable. The facilities and amenities are comparable with other similar hotels. The beach seems to get a bit crowded but we always managed to get lounges no matter at what time of the day we decided to drop by. The water is great and the artificial reef a few feet offshore gives plenty of snorkeling opportunities in a relatively safe environment. There are plenty of dinning choices within walking distance from the hotel. Walking north or south from here on W Bay road will land you in a restaurant. If shopping and dining is preferred a short walk to Camana bay gives you access to many shops and restaurants.
