I was on Curacao for workation… Working remotely with my company in California. I chose this place because it seemed like a good deal and I wanted to check out the city a little bit having spent so much time on beaches. Overall, The staff was friendly and helpful… But I got to be honest this hotel is kind of falling apart. Tried to open a window and part of the window fell off. Never got hot water to come out of the shower. The rooms are really dated and old and very dark… Basically caves. I could only do a few days here before moving on. On the other hand… It’s really close to the Queen Emma bridge and really close to a lot of things to see in the city… And admittedly it was pretty cheap.
The people at this hotel make you feel at home. The hotel itself needs some maintenance but the room was comfy, and I felt as if I was at a retreat although the hotel is in the middle of downtown. Would choose this hotel again for sure. Loved the authentic kriyoyo food.
The cook was amazing. The evening food of the cook (dark woman very kind ) and the service was amazing. suriname girl of the front desk was amazing. and the lady from HR too. The mister who was the waiter and helped the gust that stayed there very good was a dark guy around 1.80m. i think ihis name was sharlon. he was an amazing guy. the rest of the people are also amazing and kind. Andneomi was ind and hard worker too. I havo no remarks about this place. I would go and stay again. was amazing guys Bryan Heerenveen
At first sight it was really pretty from the outside. We booked two rooms and received one on the one side of the hotel, the other on the other side, which did not make sense because it seemed very empty. We arrived early and the lady at the reception was very nice to already let us check in to our rooms, the first room we saw had a very bad leak in the aircon and we asked for a different room, which the lady again helped us with, the second room was much better. We took a little afternoon nap as we had been awake since 4am to fly to Curacao. While trying to sleep we could hear the people in the rooms above us (sounded like they were moving furniture) when we finally fell asleep, a staff member from the hotel came in unannounced and without reason, when she saw us on the bed she said oh sorry and closed the door and left again. This made us feel like it was not safe to leave our personal things in the rooms, next morning we had the buffet breakfast which was mediocre. We only stayed one night, did not use the pools because it was full of leaves and dirty. It seems like it was once a very nice hotel, but not anymore, it's a beautiful location but was definitely not worth the price we paid to stay only one night.…
Securing a collection of two dozen historic buildings in various stages of restoration into a functional compound and running it as a hotel must be one of the greatest challenges a hotel operator could ever face. But, in our opinion, the staff at Kura Hulanda rise to the occasion. It is interesting, functional, comfortable and reasonably priced. Each room is unique. Ours was lovely. Special mention goes to Danielle at reception who went above and beyond in adjusting our reservation as our needs changed.
We were very optimistic about this property as we love historic settings and the combo of proximity to Willemstad and parking (so that we could explore the island) was appealing. However, the place is quite literally falling apart with chunks of furniture and bathroom tile tumbling down. The pools and grounds are poorly maintained, the wifi is non functioning, and the hot water in one of our rooms was never fixed. One of our tubs had the intimate hairs of a prior guest somehow permanently affixed to the ceramic and eight days of housekeeping did nothing to dislodge it. There were stickers in the rooms telling us not to drink the water (despite Curacao having a modern desalination plant). One can only assume that this was because the published stories of the hotel not being able to pay its water bill were true and caused it to use some alternate unsanitary source. The breakfast was mediocre and sparse, some of the staff quite unfriendly, and the AC in the rooms could not be adjusted. In summary, a beautiful setting with great potential but better avoided until new management rebuilds and refreshes it. …
Far from the best beaches you need to rent a car for access. Access to the commercial center in punda and otrobanda is easy, just a few minutes walk with good bars and restaurants. The hotel is divided into areas, I stayed in the Bolivar Pool, I do not recommend the room 237 (?), Upper level. The stair railing is broken in several places where there is a risk of falling. The place has a careless aspect to the details that make a difference to your stay, as well as an evening show in a hotel behind the room with electronic music that makes it impossible to sleep on Fridays and Saturdays. Do not stay in this area unless you like a lot of noise. On the plus side, the hotel provides a transfer to Kura Hulanda beach club in sabana westpunt a wonderful beach, don't miss it.
Was very impresed by the quick assistants and support before and during our stay. Please ask for the daytime Manager by the name of Danielle she is very good along with all the others . They actually clean the room every day and make sure all is well.
I cannot understand the positive comments - apart from a recent negative posting - about the Kura Hurlanda in Willemstad, Curacao. It is one of the worst hotels I have ever encountered and I have stayed in many hotels around the world. I stayed there last week because I was at a conference in Willemstad. Here are some of the problems: my room (and others I saw) was dark and let in hardly any natural light; the shower produced a trickle of water (and when I complained, the person who came to repair it agreed that it was a terrible shower and did nothing to improve it); the shower leaked and made the bathroom floor slippery and dangerous; the front door was extremely difficult to close properly; the two swimming pools were filthy and full of leaves. Breakfast was at best mediocre. This was apparently once a great hotel and is still very attractive on the surface. A local guide said that the hotel is now bankrupt - I suggest you avoid it.…
Good location. Pretty decent rooms. BUT air conditioning does not work well. Even thought at maximum fan speed + lowest temperature set-up, the AC just not cooling the room. I feel it's a little bit pricey.
