In oktober we have spend some time on this beach. The beach was clean and in that time not so full of people. Like in most of the beaches in Curacao, you have to pay a entrance fee for the beach and in addition a fee for the bed (if you want one). The beach which is near to a... More

This review is about Mambo Beach in the evening. We went to have a drink and later dinner. It depends on the night, some nights are quieter than the others (Mondays really quiet) you will find a vibrant atmosphere with a lot of young people. It is really nice to chill the night away with a cocktail and good music.... More

Mambo beach as beach has plenty of beds, chairs, bars, restaurants, floating devices in the water to make your stay comfortable but has little fish and corals to view if you go out to snorkel there. One place in the water you don’t see many people is on the other side of the wave breakers(rocks) where the water is deeper... More

Too commercial, too crowded, too ugly and dirty behind the hotels, and why stay there if you dont have the feeling of being on Curacao there?

Kind of strange from an Americans perspective. We are not at all used to beach you must pay to use. So, after you walk on the beach and get settled in you will be visited by a lady that is charging to use the beach. After you pay her about 5 minutes later another lady will visit you and ask...

We rented a car and drove around the entire island stopping at just about all the beaches. Mambo Beach is highly over rated and here's why. This is a tourist trap with tourists who, let's just say ..... The beach is beautiful and it has a nice little row of stores but don't be misled, it is NOT a boardwalk,... More

My hotel (Trupial Inn) provided a free shuttle to Mambo beach. You need to pay to enter the beach and use the chairs. This is very much your average tourist beach with shops and hotels nearby. Nothing really negative to say but I'd recommend you head west to Porto Mari and Kenepa.

Little bit of everything. Shopping, food,Bars and swimming pools and swimming in the ocean. Bring your snorkel gear and swim out to the rocks and see all the fish. Chair rentals and beach access is $7 a person or 3.50 pp to access the beach.
