We e-mailed the resort with our arrival information. They had a car waiting for us at the airport and champagne upon arrival. Also the refrig was full of food we requested. We bbq'ed several times as well as eating at their Restaurant All staff and management made us feel like friends. We are thinking of purchasing a second week here

The Royal Sea Aquarium in Curacao was a perfect location for our Spring Break Vacation this year (2013)! The location is beautiful and the amenities are wonderful. The resort hotel is located adjacent ot the Royal Sea Aquarium and guests of the hotel are admitted to the Sea Aquarium for free! We visited our friends at the aquarium each day!...

This is a lovely property. We checked in after dark and I was a bit disappointed to be in a first floor unit that seemed far from the ocean. The next morning we got a wonderful surprise when we opened the drapes and saw our ocean view! We were right by the pool and had a really nice patio. We...

Hands down the greatest resort on the island! My mother moved to Curaçao in July 2012 and we came in late March of 2013 to visit. She booked us at the Royal Sea Aquarium and I was SO impressed. Absolutely excellent service, the most amazing view possibly in the world, probably my favorite resort pool that i've ever been to,...

We have taken many trips to the Caribbean as a family - 6 adults one child. Have been to Aruba times as well as many other islands. This was an excellent location.

The hotel has nice amenities and is situated on a lagoon adjacent to the Sea Aquarium. The lagoon has a small beach and provides a protected area to swim in salt water, which is great for families with children. The restaurant on site is decent but a bit expensive. The rooms are nicely decorated, but the floor in our room...
