We have just come back from our trip to Curacao with our two little kids (4-years old and 17-months-old). We stayed at the Blue Bay Hotel. The villa was very beautiful and spacious, but we had no view. The garden was nice and the veranda large, but the house was very dark at evening because the lamps are very low. There were many mosquitos. The villa was quite far away from the beach for a beach hotel, 15 minutes on foot, uphill on the way back, which is not easy with two little kids. So we were very happy to had rented a car! The beach is very nice, wide and with palms. According to us it is the best beach with hotel directly on it, even though the best beaches in absolute terms are further north (Grote Knip and Cas Abou), but there you don't find beach hotels, though! The personnel of the hotel was quite helpful and kind, even though not very warm. Our kid enjoyed the swimming pool a lot! We would go back to this hotel, but a bit closer to the beach, hopefully!

My husband and I stayed for a week in early February in a 1 BR, 1.5 bath unit in The Hill. Very spacious and clean unit with a full modern kitchen. We didn't have too many problems with mosquitos as others have mentioned. However, we kept our unit closed and ran the air conditioner when we were in the unit. Beautiful view towards the beach and the golf course. You can not see the beach from The Hill but you can see the water. If you're looking to stay on the beach you would need to book a room in one of The Ocean buildings. We toured the island and visited many other hotels and resorts. We liked Blue Bay the best and would return here again.

Magnificent sunset followed by a wonderful meal! Friendly staff and good service. The chef even shared a recipe with us. We will return on our next trip to Curacao. Great food for the price - quite reasonable!

We had a free update to an ocean view apartement (thanx to the fact that my gf had her birthday on the arrival day) and it was stunning...we did not expect such a spacious apartement....the balcony had a very nice set of lounge chairs and sunbeds. The kitchen was luxurious and very good equipped with everything you need...The beach was only a 1min walk away and very nice if you like to snorkel or just to relax with a few beers, cocktails and bites

This review is for the newly opened Garden bungalow and a villa. But first of all… the hotel beach area is super – nice surroundings, children friendly, there is plenty of space, but the bottom of the sea is rather rocky, so wear shoes or swim. Restaurant is reasonably priced compared to Europe. Service was slow… you have to ask waiters for the coffee that you ordered or even the bill again and again.

Garden bungalow:
Everything inside is new and stylish, however, we had mice (or rats?) visiting us!! So hide all your meals in the fridge if you stay there.
In our unit we found mice poo-poo in the kitchen and in one of the bedrooms. But the worst thing is that during the first night, mice (or rat??) came into one of our bags (Ok, maybe it was not completely closed, but still) and eat a few meals from unopened and factory sealed bags (unopened musli bars and dry bread) were bidden, small pieces of folium and paper lying around. We had 2 small kids with us, one of them crawling age - after this experience we couldn't put her on the floor.
We notified the reception the first morning; they said they would work on the issue. After several visits at the end of the day, pest control came and put traps, but we were not moved into another accommodation even though we requested, and nobody came to wash the floor altough we requested. The mice (rat?) had a meal from the trap, but didn't get caught that night.
Next morning we told the reception that we want to move today to any accommodation available (even small), as we cannot accept having mice inside. It took us several visits to the reception with no luck, finally we came there and stayed for 50min at the counter until they finally could move us. Funny enough, they had told us that they had no accommodation available at all, although after checking hotels.com I could see a villa was available. Well, 5min later we got a villa and were very happy to move away from the mice.

The villa:
Older style, things are "worn", but great terrace/balcony, dishes and other kitchen equipment are all in, location is max 5min walk to the beach, so very convenient. We were supposed to have internet in the villa, but there was no router. And we found the beds a bit uncomfortable. They were much better in the garden unit.

BTW - dishwasher tabs cost 1 USD pr. Piece at the reception, so put a few in your suitcase from home.

But anyway, surroundings in the whole complex are very nice.
