It was our first time in Curacao and we absolutely loved it! This is my kids favorite resort to date. It's secluded and about 20min form Willemstad but we didn't mind it one bit. I was able to run in the mornings with no hassle, the trail was 3miles long to the front gate and 3miles back, perfect for those who need to get their miles in on vacation. The pools and beach were also very nice and kept clean, never crowded! There are options for dinning but I must say it's expensive! I would recommend you buy the breakfast package and I believe they do offer an all inclusive as well. The breakfast buffet has a variety of foods to eat and plenty to keep you full for hours. So all in all this place was amazing!!
Absolutely Enjoyed this Beautiful Resort
First, I like to say this was our first time visiting Curacao and it will not be our last. We came with a group of six couples and we would all agree that this resort was a little far from town, but so worth staying at. The resort was beautiful and the rooms were clean and well kept. The ladies enjoyed the spa and the guys thoroughly enjoyed the golf course which was very nice. The breakfast crew at the restaurant were very friendly and the food and service was great. Tico took care of us at the beach bar and made the best Caprihinas. Mariam, our concierge accommodated our excursions. Overall this was a very relaxing and memorable experience. We will definitely consider returning.
Best Sunday Brunch on the island
Santa Barbara resort has THE best Sunday brunch on the island. A buffet with lots of choices. Today we had the best beef Wellington ever. Never had it before at the resort. It was very well presented and the taste was extra ordinary. The team is very friendly and service is great. Will come again. Also a large dessert buffet!!! Tasty!!!
Our 5th visit, and Curacao & Santa Barbara keeps getting better! Very highly recommended!!
My family just got back from our 5th trip (5 yr's in a row) to Curacao & staying at Santa Barbara Resort. Like most, I find value in browsing through reviews in order to make spending decisions, because they say these days that reviews are the modern day word-of-mouth! My family has traveled all over the Caribbean, and if you are looking for the ultimate getaway & value, rather family or couples, you will have a hard time beating Curacao's beautiful scenery, and Santa Barbara's 5-star amenities & amazing staff! From the General Manager Rob de Bekker, to so many others, I don't understand how they do it but our experience literally gets better every year! Very highly recommended!
Beautiful resort with excellent service
We stayed at the Santa Barbara Beach Resort for one week, in June, and wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms were extremely nice and the views of the golf course and ocean were spectacular. The resort is absolutely beautiful! There are several different walking paths with many different trees, flowers, and birds to look at. The beach area was very nice with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. We rented jet skis one day and had a fun time touring along the waterfront, with Anna Marie as our guide. We had delicious food at all of the different restaurants at the resort. What impressed us the most was the excellent service we had from all of the employees. Jurandy and Cerita greeted us with a smile every morning at breakfast. We always looked forward to seeing Jaymy and Suzy working at the beach bar or at the pool restaurant. They were so kind and went out of their way to get us anything we needed. Lize kindly remembered us every time we were at the resort lobby. A special thank you to all of the wonderful employees at the resort! This was one of our best vacations and we are looking forward to returning in the future!
