Even, that the Price for Food&Drinks in the Hotel is too high (like everywhere in Curacao), the Hotel is great. Super area, perfect beach for Kids, with a lot of fishes, so Need to snorkel! But, if you want to go to Willemstad you Need a car, also to get there from the Airport. Which is much cheaper then taking... More

Visited this resort on a day pass off a cruise ship. The grounds were well kept, staff friendly. We didn't use the pool as we are beach people so we spend the day down on the beach. There were more than enough loungers and shade and people were not sitting on top of one another on the beach.

This resort has all the makings of a truly first class hotel. I want so much to give it five stars but I can't! The location and grounds are beautiful and the staff is friendly. The lobby/great room is stunning. The pool area is relaxing and chairs, umbrellas and poolside beverages are readily available. The views of the sea are... More

Nice property, quiet (for the most part)...spacious rooms. Nice views from the rooms. While technically a beach front property, you can't swim in the ocean due to currents, etc. ... it's pretty rough. But the property itself is gorgeous, well maintained and offers plenty to do. The staff at Splash Pool Bar could use some additional training...took forever to get... More
