My mom and I went to Curaçao on a 3 night 4 day vacation deal and this was the hotel we selected. I was a little unsure because of the photos on their site and the reviews here on TripAdvisor but we were pleasantly surprised! This hotel is AWESOME. First of all, it is in the middle of town so getting around is fairly easy. We decided to rent a car our first day and the Budget rent-a-car is inside the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The casino is a decent size and even on a Monday night you can find a decent crowd gambling away. The restuarant food is delicious. Try the soup samplers (the pumpkin is my favorite!). The shops are all located in the Renaissance plaza which is all inside Rif Fort. All your shopping desires are also there... Deisel, Diamonds International, XOXO, Max Mara, Armani Exhange, the Bentley Jewelers whose name I forget, Swiss watchmakers...etc etc... and all this is inside the hotel complex. The beds are super comfortable. As for the rate, we got a steal, and noted that even though we didnt have a great view, we paid nothing next to the $612 max rate posted just below the emergency escape plans. Another thing, their is one issue of subterfuge: Infinity Beach isn't really a "beach" per se. It has all the trappings of a beach, sand, sun, and all but it is not like the ones on the other coasts, because the hotel is located in the harbor. Nonetheless, they did an AMAZING job of recreating one out of water directly from the Caribbean overlooking the harbor. I've never seen anything like it. Palms trees and all! Anyway, if I come back to Curaçao in the near future, I won't even consider another hotel. Nice job Renaissance.
