“improvement !”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

It is a huge improvement to Otrabanda and a very nice entrance for the cruiseShips. It makes the walk over the Emma-Bridge to Punda. Very nice and easy.

“Great Shops,Restaurants, and Fun Atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We visited Rif Fort each time we went in to Willemstad from our resort. From the well-preserved fort walls, stone steps and the canons on display - to the variety of dining, shopping, and refreshment options - the Rif Fort was a fun place to "hang out" at the end of a day of exploring in Willemstad!

“History & Beauty”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We enjoyed walking along the fort along the water side reading about the history of the fort. It was gorgeous. It was cool to climb up the fort stairs to the second floor and look out along the Queen Emma Bridge and the downtown. There were no cruise ships to mar the view. We also stopped for some refreshing (overpriced) ice cream and sat along the wall enjoying the view.

“Great place to eat and relax”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Curacao should be congratulated with the fine job they did preserving and repurposing their historic fort and fortifications. The Riffort is charming, provides lots of diversity in dining, shopping and entertainment and is a really nice place to hang out awhile near the Punda.
