Recently stayed at the Kura Hulanda on a quick trip to Curacao. This historic hotel is set up as a quaint little village with all the amenities that one would find at a modern hotel. I enjoyed the ambience of the hotel and wished if I could have stayed longer! The staff were very friendly and professional and the hotel... More

We stayed at the Kura Hulanda during our fourth visit to Curacao and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience while there. Even though it is the low season, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful... thank you to the front desk who got us a car rental during our stay! Also... they have the most comfortable beds in Curacao!

We travelled all the way to Curacao from the UK for a special occasion, and the Kura Hulanda way exceeded our expectations. Such a beautiful, lovingly restored place - part of what's earnt Willemstad UNESCO World Heritage status. It's laid out more along the lines of a village than a hotel, with the rooms in separate lodges, along little winding... More

We made a last minute decision to stay here over the Marriott and we were so glad we did! We were upgraded to a suite for our honeymoon and the hotel is so full of character from the island because of the hotels history. It is less than two minutes walking distance from the main bridge and is very central.... More

What's not to love about this hotel? It's fabulous. We stayed 7 nights at room 261, close to Bolivar pool. Yes, there’s some street noise, it just adds to the local experience. All is said about the hotel in previous reviews, it’s walking distance to restaurants, it’s unlike any hotel chain you’ve seen. We loved receptionist Gina, who had excellent... More

We chose this hotel after reading the other reviews here and I'm so glad we did! . The layout is a bit hard to describe. I believe the hotel itself is part of a UNESCO heritage site with an attached museum. It's not really a hotel in the traditional sense but rather a small neighborhood arranged around a series of...

It's hard to actually describe or define this antiquated little complex, as simple as it is. It's not a resort; it's not a village per se, nor is it a hotel. One of the comments alludes to it being like an abandoned movie set, which is what drew me to it. That's somewhat of a half-truth: it was apparently taken... More

Great value hotel at the centre of Curacao's cruise ship stop. Price was great and the hotel was walking distance to most of the Willemstad attractions. Of course, the downside of being so central, is the booming music from the Iguana Cafe and other events, well into the morning. Everything was clean and well cared for but there are signs... More
