We really enjoyed this resort. Well maintained, friendly staff, beautiful beach, places to snorkel and see fish right off of the beach, comfortable rooms, on a large tract of land so good for hikes and long runs. Not too busy when we went. Would highly recommend it. Was a little off the beaten track, so really need a rental car...

Hotel is one of the top class at Curaçao. Good food, nice rooms and all the basics are excellent. Everything extra costs and the prices are reasonable but when added the local taxes on the top of it gets a bit expensive. Yoga and Pilates classes are great. Swimming is great, food (several restaurants) is excellent but in a way...

The cons... the food was very mediocre but was expensive, and they added a 16% gratuity on everything. I don't mind tipping for good service, but when I pay $60...

That was the review that my wife and I received from one of our excursion tour guides, during a separate private conversation. Of note, we went on a few excursions where we went to other resorts on the island to pick up fellow travelers/explorers, and we agreed that we stayed at the highlight resort of the island (it was a...

This was our 7th consecutive visit to Sta Barbara. Obvious from the title, we feel very much at home here. Hotel, rooms, service, beach, restaurants are all great. As is the golf course (we come to play golf and snorkle) the Old Quarry. A Pete Dye design that never ceases to amaze us and never bores. The condition of the...

The resort if secluded on a 5000 acre property with the old rock quarry. Upon arrival you are greeted by front gate security and then approximately a 5km driver back to the hotel itself. The resort has a gold course; bike trails; tennis courts and a marina that has a secure swimming area. It is facing the inlet right at...
