After our first stay in december 2020 we couldn’t wait to go back to this hotel. And so we went back in june for a week. Due to covid-19 the Blues restaurant and the Schooner Bar were closed, but refurbishment work was done. We already expected it to be closed and could see it turned out to be beautiful, definitely something to come back for. Our experience was once again great! All the staff were super friendly, the food and drinks were tasty and the room was thè best! We enjoyed the tasty cocktails at the beach an Mr. Hollander often has a short chat with you to check if everything is to your liking. We stayed at the new Beach Front Apartment, with a magical sea view. We saw dolphins swimming by once! We would also like to compliment the roomkeeping with the good friendly service. We are looking forward to come back to this hotel.

We liked everything about this beautiful hotel: - amazing beach - very friendly and helpful stuff - good location, only some walkings minutes to the city - offers free parking - good breakfast - the rooms have amazing views (garden+sea) - the standard rooms are very spacious (we stay there with our one and a half year old son and had a lot of space) - close to a lot of good restaurants

Overall, we had a very good experience at the resort. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The Pen restaurant was good for dinner but lunch items were less impressive. We traveled in May 2021 and were disappointed the Blues restaurant and Schooner bar were closed, but we understand the resort may not yet have the volume to support opening them. We loved our room that allowed us to walk out on to the beach. More equipment (i.e. another paddle board or sea kayak) for rental or a playground for the kids would have been nice. Snorkeling and the gym were great and the grounds were beautiful. The water was calm, teal blue, and crystal clear. The beach could have been cleaned up a bit better (my son picked up several cigarette butts). Nothing was particularly designed to be entertaining for kids, but there were many young kids at the resort in addition to couples, and our toddler had a great time. Not much night life for singles if that's what you're after. We had fun at the Seaquarium and at local restaurants within walking distance. Taxis were surprisingly expensive, not sure if we got ripped off, but everything else felt like a bargain coming from the NYC-area. JetBlue was an easy flight from JFK. Be sure to carefully follow COVID-19 travel instructions for going to Curacao and returning to the US. Thank you so much for a lovely vacation and welcome to your beautiful island and resort! We hope to return.
