As a Americans, we are spoiled..you have to remember that what we consider average in USA, is considered great in Curacao...But you are in their sandbox, so suck it up! We were there to Dive and explore, not stay in a room...that being said, this is an older resort...the restaurant is not recommended, but the pool is lovely and has...

Stayed in a house for three days with two kids age 9 and 11. The houses are fairly big and with a functioning kitchen (Except there are no oven). The resort is situated above the beach with a seaview from some of the houses (fx from no. 5 where we stayed). There is a two minute walk to the beach....

I stayed in one of the apartments at livingstone for a few months whilst working in Curacao. Having previously stayed at the Hilton and Blue Bay I wasn't sure what else I could expect. Livingstone exceeded my expectations, the accommodation was large and had all the facilities you could hope for, including a huge balcony from which you can watch...

Great appartment. We booked an appartment with 1 bedroom and planned to have a third person sleeping in the living room but we got upgraded to a 2 bedroom appartment. Great location, great appartments, very helpful staff. Overall just a great experience.

It seems that every villa has a different owner, so also different furniture. Clean villa inside, but outside not clean at all (dirty windows, piled garbage). We had a big issue with the phone. Livingstone had removed all power supplies for the phone, so this could not be used. When I had a medical emergency, they refused to give me...

As a consultant my work takes me all over the globe. This has been the most exotic location that i have worked. Considering, i have mined iron ore on Mars, dug for diamonds on our Moon.....i'm kidding!! What can i say, there are some downsides (lack of bath mats, no AC in the main area of the apartment) but hey,...

We have stayed several times at Livingstone Jan Thiel in a pool side apartment, and we love the atmosphere in the park, the beautiful garden, the rectangular pool for our early morning swim sessions, the beach and supermarket at walking distance, and the bus stop in front of the park. Although the bathroom and kitchen facilities are somewhat outdated, the...

I was not in the Resort. We had some drinks on Saturday. We started with the happy hour and stayed for hours near the Zanzibar. Awesome ambiance. Its a pity that the acoustics were so bad that you couldn't hear the vocals of the live band. Was very difficult to enjoy the music. Very friendly staff.

Rented a Lagun apartment at Livingstone just a footstep away from Jan Thiel Beach. The service was great. Free access to the beach. Free high speed wifi. The apartments were very clean and roomy and the view from the balcony amazing. Dive shop on the premises. Small grocery store down the street, small casino and great restaurants on the beach...

Overall impression, not great. From check in to departure, the staff treated us pretty much like an annoying interruption of their personal time. The property is also showing its age. The shower in our 'bungalow' was old, tiny and inconvenient. The drains throughout were not working well. The living room looked like it had furniture missing, but the beds were...
