In 2016 I also spent my birthday here and again in 2017 and hopefully in November 2018!
Love the apartment has everything you need. The maid is wonderful and extremely friendly!
I would definitely recommend coming here while visiting Curacao!
For my 23rd birthday I stayed at Ocean Garden with my friends and boyfriend. We loved the view. Ocean Garden gives you a home like feeling! We had everything we needed and more!
My wife and I rented Apartment #2 @ building number 6 for two weeks. What a delight! The apartment over looks the cove to the sea aquarium so you can see the dolphins jumping. You also have a sunset view overlooking the ocean.
The owner Marcia and her daughter Amber ensure your stay is the best ever! They even did some pre shopping for us so we had provisions the first day! The apartment is fully furnished wth everything you need....spices, pots and pans, utensils,grill, coolers and a full kitchen. Both bedrooms have separate bath facilities and air conditioning. Maid service was provided every few days and what a surprise...Charin, the maid, was meticulous and even washed our clothes! The outside veranda has a table so you can eat your meals outside while watching colorful birds and iguanas.
The resort has both a large pool and its own private beach with lounge chairs, cabanas and a rinsing shower. We visited many beaches on the island during our stay, but you can’t really beat what is right here at Ocean Resort!
The resort location is ideal since the aquarium is only 100 meters away and you are next to Mambo beach that has restaurants, night clubs and even a Starbucks.
I can’t say enough about the apartment and resort. My only regret is having to write this review so more people know about it.....the secret is out! :)
We come to Curacao regulary and I must say, our stay at Marcia's appartement was one of the best places we stayed!!
The appartement felt like home, it was very luxurious and very clean. Also the view was stunning, you can see the dolphins from the terrace. You can chose between the private beach or walk to one of the beaches between Hemingway and Mambo. There is also a beautiful swimming pool. Thank you once again Marcia!!
Ocean Garden is a great place to stay and a far cry from a hotel room. The condo is as advertised and in a great location right next to the Sea Aquarium and Lions Dive Resort. It is a spacious 2 bedroom condo (although we only used one of the bedrooms) with comfortable living space, great kitchen and a comfortable bed. The highlight, however, is the great patio to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, a glass of wine in the evening and any meals you want to cook at home. Although not a direct ocean view, it is as close as it gets sitting right on the channel watching the sunset. The condo has all the amenities, including beach towels, sun hats and coolers as well as a fully stocked kitchen. If you plan on cooking, be prepared to pick up amenities such as foil, spices, oil, coffee filters, etc. as those are sadly missing from the previous guests.
When we made reservations at Ocean Garden, Marcia was an immediate resource for information from car rentals, diving locations, grocery stores and more. Her information was spot on and very helpful. Jan met us at the condo and showed us to the local mini- market for picking up immediate provisions.
Our trip to Curacao was intended as a dive trip and we couldn't have been in a better location. 50 yards from the front door was a dive shop for local reef diving, boat diving or renting tanks for shore diving. The dive shop, Ocean Encounters, was great! We were less than 5km from Willemstad to visit the downtown area, local restaurants and the floating market.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ocean Gardens to anyone visiting Curacao.
