The BijBlauw is a great option to stay in the Pietermaai district in Punda: the historic buildings where the hotel is located are stylish and very comfortable for an unforgettable experience! The staff is super friendly and they made us feel at home !! Breakfast is a must in the hotel (and also at least try one dinner!) thanks for everything!!
Everything about BijBlauw was more than I could have expected: friendly, helpful owners and staff, an elegant, comfortable space, wonderful food beautifully presented, gorgeous view, and a nice little pool cooling down to boot. We stayed in the 2 bedroom flat for 10 days, two friends who both had to do some work, and it functioned perfectly for us. A great home base for daytime beach trips and great evening dining within easy walking distance.
So glad I came across this gem of a boutique hotel. Perfect getaway and location for my birthday trip. The staff was friendly from my initial telephone conversation throughout my stay. While not centrally located on a beach, the hotel is conveniently located and there are great restaurants in the surrounding areas. The entire staff was hospitable. I look forward to returning!
This hotel is just so perfect. The culture vibe in this part of the city, being able to walk to multiple restaurants in the evenings and walk back to the hotel was fantastic. There was one night, the ochenta bar next door had a party and it was extremely loud. I had a white noise app on my phone so was able to sleep through it. I thought I had paid for the breakfast ahead of time. However, it wasnt billed until the end. Had that been made clear I wouldnt have gotten it each day. They dont start serving until 8 am. Which is extremely hard when many tours start then or 9 am. You dont have time to eat and the service at all restaurants here isnt like america. I enjoyed the slow pace and experience of meals, but I wouldnt book breakfast here. They have a different menu for hotel guests. They were nice enough to package my stuff to go each morning, but it still took 30 min from start to getting the food. I would have preferred to be told the charges wouldnt apply until the end or just look at the regular menu and eat there when you dont have to rush off each morning because every morning we had something by 9 am and had to drive 20 minutes at least. Thats the only thing I would have liked to know before hand so im sharing it here. I would 100 book this place again due to the location, and people and comfort. The house keeping was top notch. Overall extremely happy. The need to have breakfast options available sooner for hotel guests or a form to fill out the night before so they have it quicker in the mornings for the added price you pay per meal. We found ourselves not enjoying the morning food and had we known it wasnt charged until the end, we would have skipped it and saved some money. The bed was comfortable, they could use a spare blanket in the room though for more warmth once you turn your ac and fan on. It was just a sheet basically to sleep. Maybe this is custom for aruba and curacao/other countries to sleep with just a top sheet. So a spare blanket in the rooms would be great. The front desk workers were fantastic and so kind. I would recommend this place for sure.…
BijBlauw is a delightful, stylish boutique hotel in the colourful district of Petermaii in Willemstad. It is run by a very friendly, courteous and helpful army of young women who went out of their way to answer my every need during my one-week stay. The seaside restaurant is also exceptional (the trufle risotto is to die for) and the service is outstanding. My only complaint would be that my otherwise perfect, very spacious sea view room somewhat lacked comfort as it has only à wooden bench and hard wooden chairs. One comfortable chair would be a welcome addition!
I've seen my share of hotels and boutique hotels but I am truly astonished that Bijblauw literally ticks all the boxes you desire of a place to spend your holiday. The rooms are stylish, the bed is comfortable, everything is clean, it's quiet, the restaurant is without a doubt one of the best on the island, the pool is intimate and relaxing, there's a great shop with a unique array of furniture and accessories and something that was seriously outstanding was the service. I am not exaggerating if I say that I've never encountered such a combination of kindness and capability. No question was too much or bothersome to them, they even helped me settle a situation with a car rental agency and even paid part of the cost as a gesture of good will. I was extremely surprised by the combination of all these factors. Hats off to an outstanding hotel! If you're wondering why to visit Curacao, staying at BijBlauw would already be a single reason to do so.…
I have been to Bijblauw 3 times - and each time it's a better experience. Aside from being super hip, it's a great location within walking distance to many (amazing) restaurants and bars. The staff is incredibly attentive with each person going the extra step in making sure guests are having a great time. Oh and the FOOD! Super delicious - fresh and clean! Can't wait to return!
This hotel, restaurant and bar has a perfect place at the water. You can sit on the terrace with the view over the ocean and ejoy really good food. Yes, is is not cheap but you know that when you decide to go there anyway-
Wonderful restaurant with seaview, nice decorated rooms, friendly staff. Located at Pietermaai, from there you can easily walk to the centre of Willemstad. Small pool, but a took a swim every morning.
We stayed at Bijblauw as a mother-daughter getaway to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. It was wonderful in every way. The hotel staff arraigned for a birthday cake waiting in the room upon our arrival. We stayed in two rooms during the course of our stay - seaside rendezvous and fiddler on the roof. Both rooms were beautiful. Very stylishly decorated, comfortable, and with breathtaking views of the ocean. We had breakfast delivered every day which was delicious and ate nearly every dinner at the incredible hotel restaurant (we loved it so much we kept going back for dinner). The boutique has wonderful items (we went twice and purchased several items). The hotel and restaurant staff are amazing. They took care of everything - advice on places to visit, they scheduled taxis for us all over the island, and we’re very friendly and helpful. We loved the entire experience and highly recommend this beautiful hotel experience.…
