Its calm, clean, friendly staff, beautiful. I have no complaints !!! Its rare. The food is very good but a little pricey. We rented a car for...

The service at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort was great. The staff especially the front desk went above and beyond to meet our needs 24 hours a day. They were also accommodating in arranging our car rental and activities during our trip (even though it was a last minute decision). The room was clean and comfortable. The food and...

Reading the comments here, I asked for a quiet room away from the parties (apparently KIA booked the resort for a few days during my stay). I couldn't have gotten a much closer one to the music in the end. The Resort is way off from anywhere within walking distance or public transport so one should consider a rental upon...

We spent 2 weeks at the Santa Barbara Ressort and we really love it. It is an extremely nice resort with a wonderfull sandy beach, a big spacious pool and a wide garden with lots of Palms and bougainvillas. The rooms are spacious and well furnished and all with a little terrace. The staff is extremely friendly. The resort is...

The hotel property is very clean and beautiful. Well worth the price we paid because we went in the off-season so, no price gouging. Overall, we thought the estate was a good choice for what we enjoy --a beach vacation. However, the hotel is far from the real Curacao experience and therefore there are a lot of limitations with things...

Nice food, really nice beach (not so crowded like other beaches on the island), friendly staff, nice rooms... with a car, its the best you can get, i think. Good for couples, also gay couples, families and business trips. Beverages are too expensive - but water is free and the food is payable

The employees here was hit or miss. A few of them may have been friendly, but most of them that I encountered had the attitude that they didn't want to be bothered and could care less that we were guest.

This resort really was beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful and perfect for a relaxing vacation. If you are looking for a resort the has something going on every night this is not the place. There were sometimes events going on at night, but it was for corporate conventions or a wedding, so not just anyone could attend. We didn't...

Nice hotel. Service was good. Pretty view... food needs work. Only 3 restaurants in property. Every meal we had was over cooked an had no real flavor... not to sound like a food snob but I had a meat dish several times and it was very tuff to chew. The property is way outside of town and the 40 dollar...
