My family just returned from a week long stay in Curacao at La Maya. It was just as we wanted - semi-private, away from the busy city, small enough we could get individualized assistance, great swimming pool for the kids, etc. If you are expecting something within walking distance of a lot to do, this is not your place. We appreciated the opportunity to get away from all of that. We rented a car (as you really should in Curacao) so we had access to the city but could also get away from it too when we returned to La Maya.
We really appreciated Annemarie's help throughout the trip. As we didn't have much knowledge of the island, we went to her for recommendations of beaches, restaurants, and other excursions; she helped book our snorkeling cruise, guided us with driving directions, ordered us pizza one night, and helped me find a bakery to special order a birthday cake. We weren't disappointed.
To address some other concerns - "there were mosquitoes": yes - everywhere on the island. Other hotels with outdoor living would have the same. "There was noise from other guests" - we didn't have this issue, but I imagine that could happen anywhere. "Rude couple": I didn't get that - quite the opposite actually, and we asked a lot of questions.
It was a clean, nice, modern apartment (with laundry!) that looked just like the pictures showed; I felt safe and secure with my 2 small children there.
I would gladly return and recommend La Maya to anyone that is looking for a quiet place to relax that is still relatively close everything.
