Decent for meals

This area is good for restaurant selections. Shopping just outside the fort. Free parking near the Renaissance hotel. Somewhat better shopping area in Punda.

Love the surroundings. A great combination between the old and the new. Scenes at night are festive, but still with a little bit of glam

We've been to Curacao twice now and we love the village. It's a great place to grab drinks or have a good dinner. The fondue restaurant is good. Very slow, but good. And the fort is cool to see.

Coming off the cruise ship we were able walk right there. It was a great mix of history and newness. We walked through thr quaint stores and were able to climb the step that lead to the upper level of the fort. The view of the water was amazing. We got smoothies and sat in the couryard just taking it... More

This is a place very nearby the harboursite of big American cruise ships, for that reason a lot of days there are a lot of tourist. If you want the have a quite walk around you should be early in the morning.

Talk the walking history tour outside the fort - very interesting! We found the stores interesting but quite expensive. No one was willing to negotiate on anything!

We visited last year and felt a bit disappointed... This beautiful renovated fort is home to some of the more high-end shops and more expensive restaurants in Curacao. It's a bit like packing the luxury section of a cruise ship mall into something that - as an historical landmark - should be more affordable to all of the country's citizens,... More
