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

"My-cation" as I refer to my annual stay at RRSA, is my time away from home.Curacao has become one of my homes away from home resorts. My three week units are facing the Caribbean Sea "ocean front".

Truely, this is a great location with excellent views of the ocean. The hotel provides no services other than cleaning. So, as explained in the description, we expected somewhat of a kitchen there.

We just returned and wished we were still there! The resort was small and intimate. It is exactly as described and pictured. The rooms were huge and every room had an ocean view since it was situated on an island. The beach was small and intimate in a lagoon. Perfect location.
