Stayed at Santa Barbara w/ my boyfriend for 5 days and do not have one bad thing to say.
The staff was extremely friendly, and helpful with reccomendations and tips for exploring the island. The grounds, including the pool and beach, are beautiful and well kept. Room & bathroom was definitely on the newer side, and kept very clean every day (note my standards are pretty high when it comes to hotel rooms). We did not eat much lunch/dinner on the property, but breakfast was awesome.
Although a bit far from the center of the island, the resort was not overcroweded and atmosphere was super relaxing and easy going. It was definitely a nice vibe to come back to after exploring Curacao's beaches each day. It is also worth mentioning that we were one of the few Americans staying at the hotel (and on the island in general) - a plus in our opinion.
Lastly, DEFINITELY reccommend renting a car if you are looking to leave the resort at all.
All that said, would 100% go back if in Curacao again. :)
