Curacoa, gem in the ABC chain
We recently stayed at this resort simply based on a desire to travel to Curacoa and what seemed to be a good off season value at what looked like a decent place to stay. Boy, did we underestimate the experience we would have. The resort is immaculately cared for by the most friendly hotel staff I have ever encountered. Literally everyone we talked to or even passed by had a smile and a cheerful greeting. Service was superb and in many cases exceeded any expectations. The front desk staff was particularly helpful to us. The food there was excellent and our rooms were clean and very comfortable. The private beach was perfect for our party and like everything else here, the beach itself was pristine. Be aware that the resort is fairly remote from other amenities but if you come here to unwind and know that Curacoa itself consists of a number of small beaches versus the long expanses of beach you'll find on other islands. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here so I won't. See for yourself.
Amazing! This place is delightful.
I spent my birthday here and had the best time! Thanks so much for the best birthday week. They completely spoiled me and made me feel like my birthday was a special to them as it was to me! They sung happy birthday our uo decorations and even gave me cake!
Most amazing staff on all points
the best service we've had in sometime now, maids, servers, front desk, pool and Spa. It's clear that the mgt team really cares about their employees and the guest at the same level. Food at Medi and Pool was excellent. Could not ask for a better experience.
My favorite R&R retreat!
Beautiful secluded environment with wonderful views and beach. I spent a weekend there on my way home from a meeting. Totally enjoyable and with all the facilities, had no need to get off the property. Also enjoyed the local entertainment at the restaurant. Recommended for anyone who is looking for a combination beach, recreation and rest and relaxation. Enjoy!
Best resort ever!!!!!
Visited your lovely island and resort from September 1st - 8th with 2 other couples. First time on the island for all of us. What a treat! We all loved the island but really, really loved the resort. I have travelled to many different islands in the Caribbean and stayed at many different resorts but have never experienced the quality of service, the level of friendliness and relaxing and nurturing environment we all experienced. The resort was very clean, very safe and for people with disabilities, very accessible. The rooms were lovely with a very comfortable bed and more than enough closet and drawer space. There were a lot hangers available (again not something I’m used to seeing at resorts). Everyone, and I mean everyone was so helpful and really pleasant about it. Lots of smiles and greetings from staff, everyday and all day. I am dairy free and restaurant staff brought me warmed almond milk every morning so I could enjoy my coffee. The fact that you even stocked it was incredible. This has never happened for me before even at 5+ star resorts. I am telling everyone I know who wants a great vacation to come and visit your resort. Thank you on behalf of me and my family for a truly great week!
