My sister was very ill and taken off a cruise ship to St Elisabeth Hospital in Willemstad. The port agent arranged for me to stay in Hotel Otrabanda, so I could walk to the hospital to visit my sister. I stayed 5 nights.
The hotel is an air conditioned, basically comfortable hotel with a small pool but no frills.
The open air restaurant was pleasant but the weather was too hot to eat outside during the day. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
The staff in both the hotel and restaurant were very helpful and spoke English. They went out of their way to make local telephone calls for me. One wait person often asked how my sister was doing.
One negative, I could not log on to their wireless internet in the lobby with my notebook. I think it was a case of their not having the newest technology. I had several younger (20 year olds) help me try to log on without success.
Because of this, I made several long distance calls (from my room) but the bill for these was only $22 US.
Overall I found this hotel more than just adequate. The staff made the difference in my stressful stay. When we were ready to go back to the US, we left about 5 am. The desk person even told us when our taxi arrived.
It is not a resort hotel but would be good for business visits.
