I am convinced that many of the "reviews" listed here are not from actual guests. As I write this, I am sitting here and looking at my surroundings in room A201 which is a two bedroom. From what appears to be beard trimmings around the sink in the bathroom, to dried crumbs around the microwave, to doors going onto the...

My husband and I honeymooned in Curacao from 26/08 to 02/09. I have posted a full trip report in the forum. We paid $38 US for a taxi from the airport. The check in process was simple. I remembered to ask for a hairdryer at the desk. Went up to the room - 202 B in building A. The view...

We stayed at the end of August and had a marvelous time. The staff was very helpful and the grounds were well kept. The kitchen was a little outdated and the stove is electric, but everything was in working condition. We had an apartment overlooking the pool and Caribbean Sea which was a great view. Every room had a balcony....

Two Couples shared a double room. The staff here is super friendly!! The rooms are clean and have most you would want in a timeshare. The resort sits between the ocean and lagoon. There is a number of restaurants located nearby plus the aquarium is here also. You receive free entry into the aquarium when you stay at the resort.

Royal Sea Aquarium Resort is a very well maintained property - with views of the Caribbean Sea from every room.  Be mindful that this also doubles as a "vacation ownership" property so don't expect toiletries and such.  The surroundings give you a relaxed and tranquil feeling so much that you will not forget you are on a vacay! Checking in was...

Stayed for one week in June 2013, which was our first time visiting Curacao. We loved the resort - it was never busy, always had a lounge chair on the private beach or by the pool. The location was great if you wanted to relax and not venture too far. I would have liked a beach facing the ocean, but...

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were especially lively during the resort poolside events. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit at the very end and the view was absolutely amazing. Only downfall was the new substation was a bit of an eyesore, the crane made it look a bit like it was under development, but it seems...

I have been coming to this resort for many years and usually all is good. However,this year the beach has very little sand on it and where there is no sand, it feels like rough concrete and can be painful to walk on. The Resort staff were advised of this but no response. Independently the security guard in his own...

This is a wonderful vacation timeshare. Most of the rooms face the ocean and each room is steps away from the private beach and swimming pool. Our room featured a king bed, with a balcony extending across the bedroom and living room. Rooms are clean and fresh and so are the grounds very well maintained. We brought some dry foods...
