As we stayed in this excellent accommodation for the 4th time, it is now really the moment to explain why we often stay here. This resort (you cannot only mention "hotel") is in our opinion the best accommodation as it feels like your second home where they know your name and everything is possible. We have experienced happy, smiling, interested...

What a great property! Lynette and Missy provided excellent service during our stay, always smiling. The food was great and the pools and lagoon provided a nice relaxing way to unwind. The gym had excellent equipment and an overall great environment to workout.

Our stay began with no hot water for two days. Loud music at night outside every night so if you came here for peaceful evenings you are at the wrong place. Staff unaccomodating. Had hot water one full day during our stay. Beach is on an inlet not the ocean. Would not recomend a visit here.

I purchased a day pass while on a cruise. This place is lovely. I had pizza at the restaurant and was delicious. The service at the pool bar is great. I was at the pool. So many chairs. Would go again.

This was our second visit to Curacao and the Santa Barbara. Our week long stay was very pleasant! It started with Brian taking our luggage and helping us to our room. Great job, Brian! The hotel hasn't changed from our first visit 2 years ago. It is still somewhat quiet and we love the seclusion from other parts of the...

We are currently staying here and are expected to leave Sat 3/18. Pros: The Santa Barbara is georgeous, well maintained, friendly staff. Its very secluded. If first time snorkeling, kayaking, diving, you can do it all here. If your experience you will find no adventure here. Mountain biking is a definate adventure here. Large long beach and swim area. Two...

Oh my! What can I say? If you have never been, then this trip is a must. It's only about 2.5 flying hours from Miami, Curacao airport is an easy one to get in/out because it is small, and quite efficient. The Santa Barbara hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport along a very scenic route, passing through one...

I stayed here in March 2017 for 3 nights. I thought the staff was all wonderful and extremely hospitable- they never said no, and accommodated every request! The room was beautiful with a nice balcony and chairs. My only complaint was very poor water pressure and very little hot water (only lukewarm). Maintenance was unable to resolve this issue. The...

It started with our OceanView room that they didn't have us in. That finally got fixed a day later. Then the fridge in the room did not work, so they replaced it but left the old fridge in the middle of the room for 5 days. Every day we would call or see concierge and they would say someone was...
