I went to curaçao in early April. I normally backpack, which I also did this time.

Staying at Poppys felt like...

Art and Frans were really helpful and friendly. The location is great - about 10 minutes walk from the Queen Emma Bridge, and everything you might need is around that area. Everything is clean and comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you need. A great budget option in Curacao.
