Our stay began with no hot water for two days. Loud music at night outside every night so if you came here for peaceful evenings you are at the wrong place. Staff unaccomodating. Had hot water one full day during our stay. Beach is on an inlet not the ocean. Would not recomend a visit here.

I purchased a day pass while on a cruise. This place is lovely. I had pizza at the restaurant and was delicious. The service at the pool bar is great. I was at the pool. So many chairs. Would go again.

This was our second visit to Curacao and the Santa Barbara. Our week long stay was very pleasant! It started with Brian taking our luggage and helping us to our room. Great job, Brian! The hotel hasn't changed from our first visit 2 years ago. It is still somewhat quiet and we love the seclusion from other parts of the...

We are currently staying here and are expected to leave Sat 3/18. Pros: The Santa Barbara is georgeous, well maintained, friendly staff. Its very secluded. If first time snorkeling, kayaking, diving, you can do it all here. If your experience you will find no adventure here. Mountain biking is a definate adventure here. Large long beach and swim area. Two...

Oh my! What can I say? If you have never been, then this trip is a must. It's only about 2.5 flying hours from Miami, Curacao airport is an easy one to get in/out because it is small, and quite efficient. The Santa Barbara hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport along a very scenic route, passing through one...

I stayed here in March 2017 for 3 nights. I thought the staff was all wonderful and extremely hospitable- they never said no, and accommodated every request! The room was beautiful with a nice balcony and chairs. My only complaint was very poor water pressure and very little hot water (only lukewarm). Maintenance was unable to resolve this issue. The...

It started with our OceanView room that they didn't have us in. That finally got fixed a day later. Then the fridge in the room did not work, so they replaced it but left the old fridge in the middle of the room for 5 days. Every day we would call or see concierge and they would say someone was...

I just returned from a week in Curacao and loved it. The hotel is beautiful and has everything that you will need. The rooms are spacious and nice. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. They are warm, friendly and happy to help make your day perfect. We had a great time. There are a few things to...

Ok...........Where do I begin?? Rooms were good. Very pricey. The facility is good if you're not planning on going anywhere while you're there. Otherwise, cab and rental car are you choices. Cab rides were over $100 to and from total. The golf course was OK. Windy, HOT (82 degrees), Windy, greens are not "full", windy, but there's no one on...

Great big resort, man made beach, but nice and good for swim, snorkel and SUP. Good restaurants, just need car to go to any place or you have to pay one of their tour as it is far away. There are boats living there to take you snorkeling or diving. Good for families and kids. Services and prices very good.

“There were two outside lights on the patio, presumably part of the overall hotel lighting design. The first night we found the glare interfered with sleeping with the curtain/shades open. Easy fix: used 2 of the seat cushions to block the light...problem solved! ”
