My sister and I stayed here this past week and loved it! The resort itself was gorgeous, spacious, and clean. Very calm and peaceful. We stayed in a suite in the bungalows and purchased the inclusive package so we were able to eat, play sports, and do other activities unlimited. The hotel staff were very friendly and made our stay... More

First of all, this is a beautiful property. Sitting next to the seaside with a cocktail in hand, you truly imagine yourself in paradise. Spotting local fauna was also a favourite pastime (those darn iguanas are always so hungry!) The staff is extremely friendly and they truly went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.... More

A few days "holiday" on our own Island. This resort has a lot to offer! Check out is always a bit slow. Check your bill, also or even when you are a local. Love the rooms and pool area with Splash cafe.

Excellent place to retire. Needed a place to get away for a few days with my family. Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort turned out to be the ideal place. The location is perfect. Nature surroundings, water sport facilities, gym, etc. Great!

Our daughter booked us into this place on our recent trip. What a gem. Remote (several miles to the nearest building). Quite (just the waves). My only regret is that our daughter planned some many activities for our long weekend that I didn't have time to play golf (several lovely courses surround this property)

This resort has the friendliest and helpful staff. They exchanged money for me, called taxis, gave me directions and answered any questions I had. When we arrived we were treated to an appetizer and a bottle of wine in our room. We had the premium ocean view room. Every morning we had our coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean.... More

This is a wonderful hotel, but you will need a car!!! The resort is a good ways out from town and any other sites. The rooms are large and well appointed. The staff is super friendly and helpful! The food is average and expensive. The hotel has a very small beach area.

The room was very beautiful, very clean and very comfortable! Although this resort is a bit out of town, we loved staying here. It was vey helpful to have Bounty Adventures on property as my husband went diving with them most days right from our resort and I enjoyed a kayak adventure and we both enjoyed another boat adventure.

I sure I can call this the best resort on Curacao. Lovely reception area, nice rooms, great pool, beautiful beach and setting. Love all of the activities offered. Shore is a gorgeous restaurant. The hotel took good care of us.

We stayed at here for 8 nights in July. The place is beautiful but it is DEFINITELY no 5 star hotel, barely even a 4 star hotel. From having to drag in our own luggage from the parking lot (the place is huge), and then waiting over 2 hours to get our room and not being offered anything to drink... More
