I stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort during my second and third stays in Curaçao. The location is beautiful and the views from our room and balcony were incredible. I was able to view the sea aquariums’ dolphin show right from my balcony! The rooms were very large and clean. The pools were large as well and never crowded. The location is a bit far away from the city center, but the hotel offers free shuttle service. As a guest, you also get free admission to the sea aquarium. I’d recommend staying at this hotel and curaçao in general during the summer months, when the weather is beautiful and they’re aren’t as many fellow tourist.

The moment we checked in, we were impressed by the friendly welcome of the staff. Our room was large and airy, clean and comfortable. The area was perfect for a fun weekend. Situated next door to the Sea Aquarium where we could watch dolphin and sea lion shows. Next door is Mambo Beach where, on Friday nights, there is a fun party atmosphere and not far from Jan Theil Beach where the party rocks on Saturday night. There is a small, calm inlet for snorkeling and swimming, as well as a little beach for sunbathing. Breakfast was served seaside, made to order, tasty and plentiful. All in all, quite a pleasant stay.

We take a tropical vacation every year, and this resort was our favorite! It's smaller and quiet, we always felt very safe. The best terrace we've ever had too! It's the best way to start the day...out on the Terrace with morning coffee overlooking the lovely pool area and ocean. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. You can snorkel off the beach area - just go under the bridge that goes to the parking lot - very safe reef area with a good selection of fish and coral being grafted. Enjoyed seeing the sea lion show at the aquarium for free three times. The only negative - the mattress was a bit lumpy. The decor was appropriate for the Caribbean.; limestone floors I believe.

The staff at this hotel is amazing. Always helpful and smiling. We stayed here 6 nights. The Room: The room is nice and big with a walk in closet an a big safe for your belongings. Our booking said 2 double beds, they were small, but we managed. Would have preferred a king size bed. The kitchenette worked but there was no heater for tea water, som had to use the microwave. There is no sink in the kitchen or the bathroom witch was a bit odd. The sink is placed between bathroom and kitchenette. The did provide us with soap, sponge and a cloth to do the dishes witch was nice. The A/C works well, but make a lot of noise. Unfortunately our room was on ground level facing the sea aquarium, so not the best view other than the dolphin show. We coulden't really use our very narrow balcony because we had a few rain showers witch caused at lok of water on the floor. Thee was no drain for the water. The hotel: In the hallway there is an ice machine witch is nice. You can drink the water from the tab without worry. You can do your laundry for USD 6 for washer and dryer. Soap is also USD 3 i recommend to buy soap in the supermarked witch is much cheaper. The pool area is really nice and quit the beach is really small, and you can't see the sunset from there. We stayed at the pool area most of the time. Happy hour at the restaurant is not really happy hour. A cocktail is USD 8 if you go to Hemmingway across from the hotel is more or less the same price all day long. However the cocktails at vi had at happy hour was really delicious. Surroundings: You can take the free bus to the supermarked, but if you dont want to wait for the daily bus or just missed it, there is a local supermarked 30 min walk from the hotel called Boulevard supermarked. We used this marked because a little walk is good for the health :-) We walked to Willemstad, it about 1 hour walk. You can also take the local bus for a few USD. A taxi is USD 20 each way. We also stayed 10 days at LionsDive Beach Resort witch was more or less the same price. Personally we prefer LionsDive even thougt there is more noise and no kitchenette. We stayed in the main building above the recption. The noice there was from birds and motorcycles on the street. But if you want a quiet place with a kitchenette this is the place to stay. I would recommend to get a room faving the pool, here you have the best view both pool and ocean.
