We are Hyatt gold passport members and have stayed at a variety of Hyatt hotels. The Hyatt Regency Curacao is, without a doubt, the best experience we've had so far. The resort is brand new and gorgeous. It blends so well with the landscape and shoulders the Carribean Sea. They have a beautiful open-air lobby, and our our check-in was easy and pleasant. Our room was gorgeous and overlooked the hotel's private beach. My spa experience was fantastic; the spa is very soothing, and my therapist was great. There's no steam or sauna, but they've built in time for you to relax both before and after the service; each treatment room has it's own private veranda. So take my advice and get there early enough to enjoy it; you'll regret it if you don't. My husband golfed, and he said the course was both beautiful and challenging. We didn't put our 6 year-old in camp hyatt this time, but the recreation staff enjoyed keeping him busy, and with 2 pools and a beach, you can't go wrong! The food was wonderful, and we were happy to see they had a lot of kid-friendly options. We loved the gelato, and the chocolate bread pudding from the in-room dining menu is heavenly. We also played tennis, and the clay courts are well-worth the nominal fee. We did venture outside the hotel with the help of concierge and the rental car desk (very convenient!!); the snorkeling on the island is fantastic.
One other really cool thing about this resort is how environmentally-friendly they are. All the stone on the property came from the local quarry, they have convenient recycling containers, the lights in the rooms are room key-activated, and the pools are salt-filtered; no chlorine!!! These features scored very high with us as well.
I really cannot say enough positive things about this resort and its pleasant and accommodating staff. It was our first time to the island, we didn't want to leave, and we cannot wait to go back!
