“Second time around...”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Riffort is a beautiful attraction in the heart of Curacao. There is ice cream, shops, restaurants (Sushi at Emma Tei), and even a casino at the nearby Renaissance.

“a walk in the fort”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Located on the otrobanda side it's a convenient stop during the day to browse around and refresh yourself with a cold beer or an icecream .
After five it becomes a happy hour village and once you are done sipping that cocktail the dining possibilities are great!!
Tell the bus driver to stop here for sure!!

“Lovely landscaped old fort area made into retail shops”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Right after you depart a cruise ship, like my hubby and I did, you walk through the Riffort Village. It is actually more quaint retail shops, ice cream parlors, outdoor cafe area than old fort. However, go up the old fort stairs to get a great view across the canal of Otrabanda. There are clean bathrooms here so keep that in mind when you are taking a walking tour of Willemstad.

“Great views of the city from the fort”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Great place to park for a visit to both the Renaissance Mall and Riffort Village. Excellent views of the harbor and city from the top of the fort. Quaint little shops inside but not as many as the Renaissance in Aruba.
