“FABULOUS HOLIDAY AT THE HOLIDAY BEACH RESORT!!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2011

We were a group of friends who stayed at the Holiday Beach Resort, Curacao in the month of May, 2011.

Prior to our stay we looked at Trip Advisor for reviews from guests who had recently stayed at the property. From what was read, a lot of it was negative. Despite this we threw caution out the window and prepared ourselves to experience the Holiday Beach Resort head on.

It took us fifteen minutes to get to the hotel from the airport. We hired a taxi from the taxi station and it cost $20.00US total for the four of us.

The ride from the airport to the hotel was pleasant and very scenic.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were delighted to see how beautiful the outside physical appearance of the hotel is.

Upon entry, the bellhop quickly gathered our ton of suitcases and took them inside to the lobby/reception area. We were then escorted to the front desk.

Check in was quick and simple and we were greeted by some of the most beautiful and charming young ladies. One of them who stood out most to us was Suzette. She was always smiling and pleasant and gave us all such a warm and hearty welcome.

We were given our individual electronic room keys and the bellhop further escorted us to the elevator to take us to our rooms.

Upon entry to the room, we immediately noticed how well appointed the rooms were. Each had two queen size beds and oh so comfortable!

There is ample storage space for clothes and personal belongings. AC worked well and the bathroom was clean and functioned well.

Chamber maids were efficient and cleaned our rooms and changed all the lines every morning. There was never an instance where we had to look for clean towels or request room cleaning service.

We were also given rooms which overlooked the pool and garden area. Very nice view indeed! Although we didn’t really have much time to go onto the balcony area, it was still nice that it existed.

The hotel has a pool, a huge one at that! And it was very clean during our entire stay. Pool towels are readily available and are quite plush! There is also a gym adjacent to the pool and the equipment was new and functioned well. The restaurant and bar is also not too far away from this area and this is where we had breakfast at $14.00US per person. Each morning we would go down to the restaurant, pay our money and enjoy a sumptuous buffet breakfast!

The Hotel has a Casino, games room and a convenience store. There is also a Denny’s fast food outlet on compound that serves delicious American meals. We ate there several times. The food is great! Ask for Carlos or Zulaika!

The hotel is very close to Otrabanda and Punda. It is about 10 minutes walk along a shaded path to the city from the hotel. We never felt afraid or threatened walking to and from the city/hotel. Although we didn’t really venture out too late, just to be careful. There is also a complimentary shuttle service to and from the hotel to the city at scheduled times during the day!

Shopping in Otrabanda/Punda is great! But the designer stores are quite expensive, especially the shops located at the Renaissance Mall. But the quality is fantastic and the options endless!

Overall, we had a wonderful time at the Holiday Beach Resort. We cannot find any faults that would warrant a negative comment.

Thank you to the management and staff of Holiday Beach resort for a beautiful holiday and we look forward to another visit very soon! Bon Beni!!!

Não recomendo nem para o meu pior inimigo se hospedar nesse hotel. Sujo, com quartos com cheiro de mofo, paredes com infiltração, tomadas sem espelhos com fios aparentes, fechadura da porta quebrada, vaso sanitários sujos e quebrados, banheiro deplorável, cortinas enormes e enroladas no chão e um cabo de vassoura para fechar a janela. O Staff oferece um atendimento péssimo, são rudes e não se importam com as suas necessidades.

I stayed at the holiday beach hotel for two month on a business trip, what a complete garbage dump.The hotels website says the their rooms are newly renovated, let me assure you this is not true. However they are working on the governors sweet, so expect to hear the sound loud of jackhamering echoing through your room starting at 8 am. til about 9 pm, i guess it's their complementary wake-up service. Internet that makes dial-up seem fast can be bought for 100$ a month (dont waste your money). ohh, if you like fast, and friendly service you are going to hate the hotels beach side restaurant. I think the staff likes to play the game if they dont look at you/ just ignore you maybe you will go away and they wont have to do any work. Take the hint and go somewhere else, there is alot better places to eat on the island that are cheaper and have better service. The one plus of the trip was the excellent scuba shop, staff is the best on the island and great deals on becoming a certified diver. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.If you want to dive stop by the dive shop have fun then go back to another hotel.

We did not stay at the hotel but went to the Veneto Casino there everyday during our vacation in Curacao. We felt it was the best of all the casino's on the island. The slots were looser. The penny machines kept us entertained for hours and we usually broke out even or ahead. The smoke wasn't too bad as it seemed better ventilated than the other casino's. The air conditioning was nice and cold too. The beverage's such as soda were complimentary and in the evening the beer was too, and they were served on a frequent basis. The ease of putting dollars right into the slots was far better than having to put money on a card with a chip as was required at two of the other casino's. We signed up for a players card and earned a few points which we were able to convert to slot dollars.
One of the reasons we liked the Veneto so much was the hospitality of the staff. We felt that the casino hostess Shakoen was probably one of the nicest casino staff we've ever encountered in our travels. She made us feel like we were really welcomed there. Can't say that for the other casino's. We will be back there the next time we vacation in Curacao.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and it gets worse every time. The beds are old and lumpy along with the pillows. The sheets are worn and stained, the bathrooms are a joke! Dirty, old, low pressure, sometimes you get scalding hot water, sometimes freezing cold, there is mold and ants in almost every room. The staff, for the most part, is terrible. Sometimes you will run across a good one, sometimes. The "Tanga Bar" is a little restaurant bar, the staff there is great, service is slow and the food, meh. There is a Denny's attached to the hotel, and well, it's a Denny's. Not like the states though, one day you'll get what you ordered, next day you won't. And they don't care. The pool is disgusting, I wouldn't even go in it. The beach is okay, but the entire hotel is a local haven, so it's always very crowded. The gym is a joke, not a lot to begin with and most is broken. The casino is okay, but I would go to the Renaissance up the street. The location is pretty good though; about a 5 minute walk to town and the cruise port. There are lots of shops, restaurants, a casino and a movie theatre there that are pretty nice.
