If you have the chance to stay here by spending a bit more money then you should, I decided to do this for our honeymoon and it was a great hotel.
The grounds of the hotel are well maintained and look great. There are 2 beaches (one is windier than the other), shopping plaza (with a great coffee place), a few bars and restaurants and all the places we tried were good.
It is walking distance into the main part of Willemstad, but the hotel has a free shuttle that will take you twice a day (once in the morning and then at 2 I believe). It is a warm walk and they are doing a lot of renovation along the way so it doesn't always feel safe once it's dark but we never had any issues. Most nights we ate in town, the resort has a pool bar, Blues Bar and a restaurant, there are also a few restaurants almost across the road.
The room was great, nice but small balcony and the bathroom was pretty modern. You can get your room cleaned everyday by the cleaning staff who are quite friendly or when you wish.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone coming to the island.
