Hotel is over priced and far below its ratings.
Rooms are clean and food is great, no more nice words to say.
Personnel not up to their tasks. Service doesnt meet their premium image. American tourist who expects service wont stay nor ever come back. When we entered our two bedroom suite, there was one bathrobe and three towels to start with - family of 4. After second request on second day of stay we finally got right number of towels and robes. Personnel messed three times our dinner reservations, etc...
If your interest is not Gym or beach, there is absolutely nothing to do in the hotel area.
When you leave the hotel area, there is no place to walk because hotel is located in the middle of lowest class suburb.

Many well advertised tourist sites and companys have disappeared in the wilderness. After driving around the island for a week, there isnt actually much to see, except bushes and cactus taking over and lots of waste and rubbish everywhere.
Downtown Willemstadt has a few blocks small area with nice staging for cruise ship tourists. If you walk two blocks further, reality shocks.
