“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

This is a very nice place to stay. The beach is perfect right in the hotel and the hotel is close to everywhere. The stuff is nice and there is a bar in the hotel. The rooms were clean and very confortable. There is also a sport centre in the hotel. The only remark: the price for a dinner was arround 50 dollars which O found very expensive.

My wife and I stayed here on a short vacation. When we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and very helpful. Curacao is hot, so it was refreshing to be served a cold drink on arrival. However since we arrived at 1 pm, we could not check in until 4 pm !. We left our luggage and walked around, came back at 3:30 pm and the room was not ready. They stick to their 4 pm check in time. So if you plan to stay at this hotel, make sure you do not arrive too early. Breakfast was good, alot of choices, buffet dinner was even better and at reasonable cost. The location of the hotel was perfect walking distance into the historic side of Willemstad across the bridge and within locaton to alot of other restaurants. They have a very unique artificial beach pool on the second floor, you can spend you entrie day here, very relaxing with views of the large cruise ships docking at the cruise terminal and ships entering the canal.

Room Tip: Check in at 4pm, if you arrive too early, you will have to wait until that time. Plan ahead

Dear Rodney B,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your recent stay at Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino!

Our check-in time is indeed at 4PM and it is unfortunate to read we were not able to provide you with an early check-in. Upon availability we do provide early check-in. It is good to see you took the opportunity to leave your luggage and explore the Island a bit!

Thank you for all the great comments and we hope to see you back soon!

every time I come to Curacao I stay in this hotel. The hotel has a very nice lobby and the rooms are great as long as you do not get an interior room. The interior one are nice rooms but you need to have the curtains downs since on the other side they have a hall with the meeting area and you do not have any privacy. The infinity pool simulates an artificial beach that has a great view of the ocean. The staff is very friendly and always happy whiling and able to help you for anything you might need.

Room Tip: No interior room and no room looking to the baseball field since there is noise from the cars passin...

The hotel staff are very pleasant and willing to serve. The food is tasty, except the fish which needs more seasonings. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned excellently. The only drawback is that the pool closes at 7:00 pm sharp and the second floor lacks privacy and smells because of the high traffic of non-guests in Starbucks and the stale smell of ground coffee. None of the other floors have this smell or such high traffic, There could be more security at the entrance and there were too many non-guests with easy access to anywhere on the hotel compound.

When going to town AVOID THE STORE CONNECTIONS. They were very unscrupulous in their sales policy charging arbitrary prices as well as PnP which also seems a bit shady in dealing with non-residents. BE EXTRA CAREFUL. Shop around before purchasing from those stores and different branches have very different prices. I believe they charge based on how much money they think they can fleece from you.
But overall GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are smelly with high non-guest traffic .

My husband and I just got back from a 5 day trip to Curacao. We stayed at the Renaissance. the only bad side was the cigarette smell as soon as you walk in the lobby. We had a room on the 2nd floor and you could actually smell it all the way to the room. Once you went in your room you didn't smell it any longer. Such a nice place to stay but they really need to do something about that cigarette smell. Other than that I would give it a 5 star. The staff is very friendly. Very nice people in Curacao. I loved their man made beach it was one of the highlights of our trip. I was not impressed with the beaches on the west side due to the rocks. I would advise for you to take water shoes if you are planning on excursions to any of the beaches in Curacao. The beaches are beautiful though.

I've had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for over three months. Other than some minor issues all in all it's probably one of the nicer places to stay in Curaçao! The beach salt water pool has an outstanding view that rivals most beach views at other hotels. A full service bar at the pool so you can enjoy some great cocktails while enjoying the sunshine! The location of the hotel is perfect for walking to a bunch of different attractions. The refrigerator is rather small if you are spending much time there. It fits about a six pack of beer only. The food is good to the taste but rather expensive. The staff is some of the friendliest people I have ever encountered at a hotel. From the door men to the managers everyone always seems to be extremely happy to help you! I would stay at this place again with out a doubt!

Room Tip: I would ask for an ocean facing room! It's a little more expensive but you get a great view and...

This was a return trip and again a much needed week of vacation and SCUBA diving after a strenuous period at work. Our last trip was in November 2011. This trip, we had a ocean view room with a balcony. When we arrived, the hotel offered to upgrade us to a large suite, which was beautiful, but we declined figuring correctly: we really were not in our room that much. The man-made “Infinity Beach” is still exceptional and very relaxing. With the hotel at 85% occupancy, we hardly ever saw anyone, and as usual, there were plenty of beach towels and chairs (same as our previous visit). Again, this week, after a morning of SCUBA, we spent the afternoons at the beach. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. This trip we got to know the Infinity Club bartenders. We sampled the daily cocktail, but eventually decided to pay the cork fee and bring our own wine to the beach for the afternoon. As with our previous trip, we rented a car from Budget, but unlike last time, we had no issues with the car – either driving the 20 minutes from the airport (a very easy drive), or the 20 minutes to and from Ocean Encounters at Lions Dive and Beach Resort, which I will review separately. We found the food at the resort very plentiful and better than our previous trip. Based upon our previous trip, I did not sample the buffet; my wife had the buffet breakfast on our last morning and it was quite tasty. The resort also has restaurants throughout the Rif Fort area, so there are lots of choices. We ate and drank at Soprano’s and enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the warm weather (and a cigar or two). We did not go into the casino; it did have a rather dour odor of stale smoke. As with our last trip, there was always a broken monitor in one of the elevators. We ate at the Bistro Le Clochard , Ema –Tei and a new restaurant: Royal Dutch Cheesery. The latter is now our new favorite, which I will review separately.
