We booked 2 rooms - only on arrival to discover that the rooms we had ordered and paid for were downgraded to something simpeler. This was a 2 hours discussion until solved. The staff at the reception has an attitude, as has the chief of the breakfast restaurant - Indira. The rooms are spacious, however, I don't think a mop... More

This hotel / resort / golf resort is located next to the sea and the passage leasing to The Spanish Water, a large salt water body in Curacao. The location is former Phosphate mining company premises. This means that the premises were not developed for housing. This left the designers of this hotel / golf venue with ample space to... More

My wife and I went to Curacao for our 25th anniversary and stayed at the Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort. We did not buy the all-inclusive, but rented a car with the hopes getting away from the resort while eating at and exploring different parts of the island. As it turned out, this was a great plan! The Santa... More

We have never been to the Caribbean before and did not know what to expect, we opted for Curacao and what a great find. The weather, the tranquillity, the people all superb. We checked in late on a Monday afternoon, when we arrived we were greeted by the customary blue curacao and it was lovely. What we did not expect... More

This resort is beautiful, and I ate delicious meals which I will remember forever. The staff of the Santa Barbara is one of the best we met yet in the Caribbean. Ellie at the front desk, Kadia, Don and Glenn at the beach restaurant, Fritz at the Shore and the pool team are all great, smily and professional people who... More

Stunning resort with many amenities. Rooms are gorgeous and the lobby really is as spectacular as all the pictures indicate. Everyone is super friendly and the golf course (while being INCREDIBLY challenging) is just beautiful. Family really enjoyed.

I was initially reluctant to book this resort for a winter vacation with the boyfriend because of its relatively remote location on the island compared to most others and the fact that it wasn't near any entertainment/nightlife. However, we were totally blown away by how unbelievably gorgeous this place was from top to bottom. We were greeted with cocktails at... More
