I too had to stay here as courtesy of the InselAir airline. This hotel is absolutely grotesque! I can't even believe its considered a hotel!! I stayed at the Marriot while I visited curaçao and it was lovely and had an impeccable staff. At the Clarion however, the staff is extremely rude and it was honestly the absolute WORST hotel I have EVER stayed in. First of all, from the moment you walk in their is a horrendous stench of mold which can literally be seen with the naked eye in certain areas throughout the hotel. Also, apparently there is a Medical university located in front of the hotel which is loaded with students almost as if it was their dorm and I was just appalled as a guest to see some people from the hotel slashing the tires of the poor students because they didn't want them parking in the their parking lot. Regardless of the fact that they are students, they are still guests and It just goes to show the level of disrespect these people had at the Clarion. I felt so bad for the students. To top it off my room was dirty and I can honestly say EVERYTHING was old and broken. You can see that they attempted to put in some new items to cover it up but nothing was going to cut it. The only thing that will save that hotel is to tear it down and start from zero. Please, I literally beg you NOT TO STAY AT THE CLARION!! You will leave their traumatized!! Stay at the Marriot, Hilton or Floris!!
On a side note we stayed at the MARRIOT, my husband and I went for 2 weeks and it was absolutely great...I wouldn't say it was the best hotel ever but it was very clean, the food was wonderful, lovely staff and overall great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the Marriot!
