I just like this Hotel.. Maybe its the Minimalist design, but I found it very relaxing.. Its clean, staff friendly and all that, beach has lots to do as usual, but it has a very modern relaxing feel, with its LED floor lights in the room, which you can change colours as you please..

We just returned from a week at the Papagayo Beach Hotel and were overall very happy. The property, located at Jan Thiel, is very modern, perhaps minimalist. We had a ocean view room and indeed had a great view from the very large patio/lanai. before booking there we did look at the reviews here on Tripadvisor. Someone earlier had complained...

This hotel has a lot of beautiful buildings and the lobby area is stunning. Our room was clean. But! They say this place was supposed to be adults only. Not! The pools were filled with children from the attached beach resort every day. Often children would come alone. Then there were the parents who brought their kids from another area...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 new nights. The hotel and rooms are impeccable, very clean and nicely decorated. I don't give it 5 stars because the A/C did not cooled the room to my satisfaction. The restaurants, pools and bar are very good. You can have a great scuba dive just in front of the hotel, good scuba...

I' read a number of reviews about Papagayo Beach Hotel prior to my visit to Curacao two weeks ago ( June 16,2015) . I found several reviewers to be less than resourceful or otherwise unaccustomed to this type of hotel. First off comments about how costly everything is failed to take in to account the terrific, clean and well stocked...

Great Staff, especially Oscar at the front desk. Good location, with 4 or 5 good restaurants & bars within a very short walk. There's a supermarket with reasonable prices on the property plus a small casino. Beach is fine--not the best I've ever seen but good. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a fun vacation.

Let's just start with the good things: we arrived in the noon, were welcomed at the front desk and got a cocktail within 5 minutes. They had already "activated" our room and turned on the AC (so relaxing when you just arrive and have to get accustomed to the heat). A nice, Dutch girl brought us to our room (we...
