This hotel is great! Ive had such a relax time here. The beach is gorgeous and the 50 meter pool is such a great extra. Did my morning laps here and met some nice swimbuddy's. Some of the locals even took me for a morning training swim from the hotel till wet and wild. And after the swim having breakfast on the beach and enjoying the sun for the rest of the day. This is my perfect holiday. Being active but also relaxed. Thanks to the management and the staff and of course the locals for this unforgettable experience on this amazing island at this great hotel!

This is the best hotel in Curaçao for those who like to have it cosy, familiar and eco-friendly! Right next door to the Dolphin Academy and a great Dive shop so what else do you need? I really loved being here, loved the food in Hemmingway restaurant and enjoyed the whole vacation thanks to Lions Dive!

Room Tip: I had the old building which was no problem at all! It had a colonial style which I really liked!

Pluses-Very nice beach, nice calm water conducive for shallow-water snorkeling. Room was fine, reasonably clean. Close to town, shuttle to town and to a nice supermarket. Negatives-desk staff not well-trained or knowledgeable, food at Hemmingways including breakfast just adequate. You get very little help as far as orientation.

Room Tip: get a room on the beach(we were upgraded). There is free wifi-but it is not free to go to the seaqua...

Staff were rude, food was average, room was basic. Not many emenities, European power outlets were not mentioned at all on website or in telephone conversations with staff. We were charged for the in room safe even though we never used it. Will never stay here again.

Us: American Family of 4, kids age 7 and 10. 6th Caribbean vacation.

The pros: Great location with large beach areas protected by man-made breakwall. Plenty of seating seaside. Good off-beach snorkeling around breakwall. Resort offers three restaurants (Hemingways, Nemo, and Piazza). Nemo's is more upscale and more expensive, but offers very good meals. Piazza is more lite fare, but we found it to be rarely open. We could occasionally find someone to serve lunch there. Hemingways is in-between and offers buffet breakfast as well, right on the beach. Food quality is average and prices in USD are good. All staff were friendly and courteous and tried to be helpful. Room cleaning was acceptable.

The cons:
- Mosquito's and lots of them. They are everywhere and eat at you through the night. Bring mosquito repellent.
- Language is a bit of a barrier, as well as payment in USD (cash or credit) at some locations. The island is a Dutch island, and most locals and visitors speak dutch with some being bi-lingual English. English speakers will need to look past it, try to work through it, and have fun with it.
- Room was small and cramped for a family of 4. The oceanfront room, while oceanfront, did not allow access directly from the room. We didn't spend much time there so it wasn't a big deal for us. Beds were a bit uncomfortable.
- While the staff was great, the other guests were not. I found the other dutch guests to be generally rude (cutting in front of us in lines, not yielding walking room on sidewalks) and dirty (Leaving their garbage on the beach, throwing plastic cups into the water). Maybe it is a cultural thing I don't understand.
- Smoking is very prevalent and is permitted everywhere generally.
- Being a Dutch island, topless sunbathing is permitted and some guests do it, so be prepared.
- There were no resort activities geared toward children.

Other:
The adjacent Aquarium is fun, and the Dolphin encounters are great. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Families should go with suites or apartments. "Oceanfront" rooms are not worth the extra c...
