First and foremost it is not a hotel but a time share resort so expect some differences. Having that in mind we had a wonderful experience and nearly all our expectations and needs were met. If you don't want to walk further than a mile the resort has it all close by (though we preferred to drive a little further... More

What a beautiful resort. It is on its own island by the sea aquarium. Get a room overlooking the ocean and the aquarium. We sat out on our balcony ,which is very large, most nights watching the stars. How peaceful. We were in a one bedroom suite. Very spacious. It was only 2 of us but could easily hold a... More

Loved our stay at the RSAR! We had a spacious 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor with a lovely view of the pool area, the sea and Willemstad. Fantastic sunsets from the balcony. Pretty little beach along the channel between the resort and the mainland, very relaxing and wonderful snorkeling. Enjoyed the Aqua Yoga class and the cookout in... More

We recently visited Curacao and stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium. The resort is quite beautiful and offers large suites with the most awesome views of the ocean from the balconies. We spent lots of time there just relaxing and enjoyed watching the ships as they came in to Willemstad harbor. There's a nice beach and an aquarium and a... More

We recently returned from a week at RSAR which I personally found to be very relaxing indeed. The resort is co-located with the Aquarium, free admission to which is included in your package. First off, I found the facilities quite clean and decently maintained. The grounds were patrolled at night by a uniformed security officer who posted himself outside the... More
