We just completed a 4 day visit to this resort and have to say it is one of the best I've stayed in. The service was outstanding, our villa was clean and very nicely furnished, and the grounds and beach were superb. We had our own car so getting around to restaurants and sights was pretty easy from this location. Although geared more towards couples and honeymooners, we traveled came with two teenagers and were treated warmly. Overall I would recommend Baoase as the hotel of choice when visiting Curacao.

Dear Dave, Lori Ann, Allison and Sarah,

Thank you for this five bubble review!
We truly appreciate it.

Great to hear that you received outstanding service during your four (4) night’s stay with us. Even though most of our guests are honeymooners we also love welcoming families and friends. I hope this means that you enjoyed your complimentary upgrade to a two (2) bedroom, two (2) bathroom Ocean Front Villa? There is nothing better than an extra bathroom when traveling with teenagers!

As for entertainment we offer complimentary in villa WIFI, snorkel gear, noodles and kayaks on the beach they can use, but of course the best entertainment is renting the car and exploring the island. Baoase is located 5 minutes from the city center and is easily accessible via the main road.

Thank you for your recommendations and we hope we get to welcome you back soon!

With kind regards from the entire team,

If you can afford it... This is heaven! The staff, amenities and property are outstanding. The restaurant is top shelf. Nothing bad can be said regarding our stay. Upon arrival, you are greeted by all the staff, given a tour of the facility (with an unreal refreshment!) and treated like royalty. Every person we met had a smile and was more than accommodating to our every need. What an outstanding experience!!!

This is one of the most exceptional resorts we have ever stayed at! We travel throughout the continental US and several of the Caribbean Islands and we discovered Baoase on tripadvisor. Checking in at the front desk sets the tone for your stay. First, an articulate and genuinely sincere staff member took us on a tour of the resort and our room/villa. You must get on line and look at the wonderful visuals 'outside' our room. Private beach, private cabanas, pampered service for food and adult beverages. When we entered the room, it was beyond fabulous! It was superb. From the full closet, the outdoor shower and bathtub, the outside dining table, and the path to the private beach---marvelous!! We will never forget the experience, and we will never forget the absolutely wonderful staff!! We have already set up our next trip to return. Nothing short of a fantasy.

Room tip: We stayed at the beachfront villa. You actually have your own pool! Not once did we even hear any outside noises.

Dear Kenneth and Patricia,

Thank you for taking the time and writing us two (2) reviews!

Great to hear that you enjoyed your complimentary upgrade from you Honeymoon Suite to one of our Beachfront Pool Suites. Our Beachfront Pool Suites were opened last year and offer truly exceptional views.

Amazing to hear that you received the full Baoase welcome including cold towels upon arrival, our Baoase Welcome cocktail and a tour of the resort ending in your suite.
On the beach there are enough cabana’s for everyone and the beach is never crowded. We hope that we were able to make your 32nd wedding anniversary even more special with our services and accommodations and look forward to welcoming you back!

Spent the minimum three nights here during our Curaçao honeymoon. Simply put I'll lay it out to you in pros and cons...

Pros:
Superb staff who at least seem to care for your every whim.
You could simply WhatsApp the front desk or concierge to set up reservations for dinner, car rentals, tours on the island, your checkout, etc.
Best man-made lagoon I have been ever seen, plenty of pretty aquatic life to explore. Superbly groomed beach.
Free checkout of snorkel gear, noodles, floaties etc.
The most comfortable palapa chairs my behind has ever laid upon.
Delicious and expansive made to order breakfast that is included in all lodging.
Perfect location of restaurant right on the beach (reviewed separately in Baoase restaurant review).

Cons:
Colonial Room-I question the value here. We supposedly were upgraded to the Colonial from the Banyan Tree Room, which is smaller in size. But the Colonial room was on top of the main office near the front of the resort. If you are a light sleeper be prepared to hear barking and howling dogs all night. Also the bed was extremely uncomfortable and felt like it needed replacing three years ago - it sagged terribly and was incredibly hot and shaky. The tall ceilings, although pretty, provided way too space for the small A/C unit to adequately cool and the room was always hot. First night of stay a cockroach crawled across the bathroom floor, staff sprayed the next day but you never want to see one of those. Paying over $500+ per night tough to see any value in the lodging.
We got forgotten about for turn down service.
Jacuzzi was broken in the main pool the entire stay.

In the end, I don't think my new wife and I would book the Baoase again as a resort, unless we'd convince friends to rent out one of their villas with us.

We learned in our travel guide afterwards that the resort sells daily beach passes at $50 each and we'd probably opt do that instead.

Room tip: Choose a villa!

Dear Stephen and Brenda,

Thank you for this second review!
We truly appreciate It, as detailed reviews like this give us another insight on our services and accommodations.

Great to hear that you received excellent service during your stay with us.
We offer guest relations services, beach butler service and complimentary breakfast included in your rate.

In regards to your accommodation we are very surprised to hear that the Colonial Room was not up to your expectations. I will make sure to discuss your comments with our Housekeeping manager and our Maintenance manager to make sure to address the above points. As always reviews make our services better and we appreciate your candidness.

We hope that we get a second chance to give you the true Baoase experience.

We went here July 2016 for our honeymoon and it was wonderful. It has a beautiful cover to swim in, a lovely restaurant, and our beach house was just perfect. the only downside is this resort's location - the resort isn't very close to anything else and I wouldn't recommend walking around after dark here (so youre either stuck in the resort or have to pay a VERY expensive cab fare).

Dear NikG108,

Thank you for taking the time and writing us this review.

Great to hear that we are able to help you experience a wonderful honeymoon! Our rooms, suites and villas are the perfect place to celebrate special occasions. Our resort is located between the UNESCO city center of Willemstad and Mambo Beach Boulevard. Both locations are just a 5 minutes’ drive away by cab or rental car. Cab fares are government regulated and start at USD 15 for max four persons one way and rental cars start at USD 45 per day. Either way there is plenty to do in the area such as clubs, beach bars, restaurants, café’s, beaches, shopping and local sightseeing.

We hope to welcome you back soon for your 1st wedding anniversary.

With kind regards from the entire team,
