I stayed at this hotel for one night because a flight cancellation (by the way, never ever flight Dutch Antilles Express).
The hotel is located in a quiet area, in front of the sea (no beach there, just a boardwalk). It is rather far from the airport and there are not many places to go at a walkable distance.
The lady in the front desk was not polite at all, I gave her the voucher given by the airline in the airport, she barely looked at it, frowned and said "I don´t know anything about this reservation, you will have to pay for your room". After a while, she decided to call somebody to ask about our voucher and finally agreed to give us a room.
The room was just OK for a hotel this category. It was clean but smelled very bad because of humidity and WiFi signal just disappeared after entering the room. Bathroom was just OK as well, clean but with floor covered by water (which condensate because of humidity) and worn out towels. Shower is inside a tub, so you must jump inside, which is dangerous considering slippery floor and wet tub.
The hotel features an outdoor restaurant which we tried (there were nowhere else to go near the hotel). Menu was rather limited but meals where OK. We didn't try the tiny swimming pool.
I cannot assess hotel value, because our stay was paid by airline.
PROS: Quiet hotel, clean room.
CONS: Smelly and humid room, impolite receptionist, far from airport and downtown
I am not crazy about coming back to Curacao, but If I do, I will probably stay someplace else.
