Relaxation!

Would recommend Wed, Mar 14, 2012
This was a beautiful hotel. The staff was very helpful and always greeted you with a smile. Patrick greeted us when we got there and gave a a quick tour of the hotel and then drove us and our luggage to our room (which was at the end of the resort). The staff after the first night always greeted us by name. The food was great and not over priced. The view from the room was beautiful. The only disappointed I could mention was it was cloudy for most of our trip (nothing that could be controlled of course)

Dining

Downtown had many quaint places to eat. I recommend going there at least once during your stay.

I went with a friend and our overall experience was very good. The beach and pool areas are great and the hotel staff is courteous and helpful. Our room was always well kept and clean and our beach view with the sunsets was beautiful. The best food we had was at Medi and my friend and I were both disappointed in Shore (the more expensive restaurant). You get a better meal and a better deal at Medi. Watch your check to make sure that they are accurate! (this is why my staff rating is low, I felt like some staff were trying to overcharge) My friend and I as well as some other guests we met were being charged extra (esp for liquor and wine and at the small goods shop on the ground floor). It became suspicious with so many people experiencing the same additional charges. Just double and triple check your receipts. I personally caught mistaken additional charges on two bills during my six day stay as well as someone not giving me back all of my change when I paid in cash. If you are adventurous and won't want to lounge all day you'll definitely need to rent a car. The cabs are insanely overpriced (100 round trip just to go 20 minuted to get to Willemstaad). The hotel travel desk does offer a shuttle into town for $12 round trip. Depending on the day you could either take the 8:30-2:30 trip or the 5-10:30 trip. There isn't much in the way of snorkeling around the hotel so i'd suggest either booking with a snorkeling tour or a scuba tour to check out the reefs. The hotel also has kayaks, paddle boards, bikes and paddle boats for a fee. All in all it was a great place to go but for me its not worth a second trip. One visit was amazing but I'll check out another island next time I travel.

Entertainment hint

If you don't get motion sick I would definitely recommend the Klein Curacao day trip. The island is deserted but beautiful and the catamaran we took had a great crew and a fun group of people on board. Bring lots of sunblock! Best of all the catamaran picks up Hyatt guests right at the Hyatt dock so you don't need to leave the resort to get on the boat.

Staff was extremely helpful, tending to everything we wanted almost before we could ask! Facility is very nice overall. We took a cab into Willemstad and had a nice afternoon. One thing about this resort, there may be some confusion about the walled-in swimming area. It does get up to about 6 feet toward the dock, so adult swimmers can and will enjoy it.

Excellent hotel but location is ok

Would not recommend Thu, Dec 1, 2011
This resort hotel is really good if you want to sit back and enjoy the island without really stepping out on the dirty roads and having to navigate the island using your rental car. The resort is completely opposite direction of airport. It is close to Ostrich farm and Jan Thiel but is really far from WestPunt, Airport. Even from downtown it can take a good 20 mins to get to resort's entrance. The resort entrance to hotel itself is a good 3 miles and it adds up the time in travelling. The staff is usually not that helpful in giving you local tips since they are mostly international staff from other countries and other islands. You will not get the tip on where to find the best Galina Stoba or the best local "SNEK" (snack joint) from the staff. The beach right in front has a lot of fishes and you can rent snorkel gear right here and enjoy the fishes. They also have Ocean Encounters which take you to deep sea trips. However, the resort is really pricy and all their restaurants serve good food, but it will be about $70 USD/meal for two on average without drinks or desserts. There is a 15% service charge for everything you eat or drink at any of the restaurants or the bar. Tax is extra. There is also a resort fee that you pay for your stay. its a nice resort..if you plan on just chilling there (they do have everything that you can want..including a beach side restaurant, nice pool, spa, 24 hr gym, international cuisine food, excellent golf), but if you plan on exploring the island..this is not that well located. I would get something in downtown.

Dining

Medi has the best cuisine out of all restaurants and excellent service and live music nightly. I would eat at Medi and SwimBar and avoid the overly rated Shor restaurant which is very mediocre.

Amazing vacation!

Would recommend Sun, Nov 27, 2011
Everything about the Hyatt is exceptional-their service is fabulous and the rooms are perfect. The grounds are beautiful and there are lots of activities on site including Ocean Encounters, which I also highly recommend. The beach is lagooned off, but if you swim out beyond the barrier there is some amazing snorkeling right in front of the hotel. The location is a little remote, but we rented a car and had no trouble navigating around other parts of the island and back to the Hyatt. The food on site is very good and doesn't seem to be overpriced so if you don't want to rent a car, you don't really need one-everything you need is at the Hyatt. Overall I would definitely recommend the Hyatt and plan to travel to Curacao again!

Money saver

If you do rent a car, stop at one of the many snack stands dotted all over the island. (These are the small buildings with the bars on the windows-you will see them everywhere.) They are basically concession stands and serve some pretty delicious treats, like curry chicken empanadas, for around $1.
