The transformation they did of the Rif Fort into what can be summarize as a "mall" was amazing. There is shopping galore, as well as some outstanding selections of restaurants. A very lively outdoor lounge is the place to be in the evenings. Be sure to check it out.

This place was very pretty but really touristy. It is over priced, and usually crowded when a boat is on the island. It has a few nice shops but if you venture out more there is more to choose from. It is definitely something worth seeing on a trip to the island but not a priority. Steak and ribs is located here and I Highly recommend it.

My husband and I honeymooned in Curacao and passed through Rif Fort early in the day, so most things seemed closed. We were happier that way, because we were more interested from a historical point of view anyway. We walked up the stairs and enjoyed the view, very relaxing.

If you are looking for the comforts of home, stop here! We found ourselves there several times, looking for breakfast at Starbucks and the renaissance, watching a movie and peeking in a few of the shops. This is where the mega cruise ships dock. The amount of patrons noticeably pick up when the cruise ship is docked, so check the cruise ship schedules in the local tourist paper that comes out daily and is likely available in your hotel. Also next door in the local baseball field. During our week-long stay it seemed there were 3-4 games. We peeked in, but there wasn't any commercial entertainment, so I expected I would get bored since I'm not obsessed with baseball.
