Would recommend Thu, Sep 10, 2015
Overall, hotel is in a quiet location and the price is very reasonable.. But if you can get over the following, it may be a right choice for you: 1. No wifi. The lobby has free wifi, but no wifi in rooms. 2. So-so restaurant. I never got sick, but the food is ok. 3. Lack of amenities. You forgot toothbrush? too bad. You have long hair and need extra shampoo and conditioner? You are not on a scavenger hunt. 4. It's in a desperate need for reno. Shows sign of aging everywhere.

We loved this place!

Would recommend Mon, May 4, 2015
We stayed at the West Point location but also had a great evening in the city, and we absolutely loved it all! While on the Punt, we enjoyed the abundance of birds, lizards and lush wild, but well kept gardens, as well as the Beach, snorkling and I scuba dove right off the pier. The locals were polite but not overly friendly until you get to know them a little. We will be back, as we absolutely loved this place!!

As Expected

Would recommend Tue, Aug 5, 2014
My goal was the best snorkeling and I didn't go wrong. The location is primo as is the beach and adjacent dive shop. The hotel is trying hard to recapture its glory. the staff was nice. They are still a little short on the infrastructure and maitneance (i.e a little painting, fixing some things, upgrading buildings etc), but it had no affect on my experience. I didn't eat at the hotel but bought groceries from the Centrum market in town after leaving the airport. We ate out one meal a day. Recommed: highly Fishalicious, second best Trio Penotti, next best Sol Food. Jaanchies was not very good food but great atmosphere. Since it is a "talking menu" ask for the price upfront. Got the iquana even though we didn't ask for it.

Nice gateway, but...

Would recommend Mon, Oct 14, 2013
... pretty much agrees with most of the other reviews. The hotel is remote which is what we were looking for. Great spot. Quiet. Beautiful. Fantastic skies. The most beautiful beaches with top world snorkeling/diving reefs - not too far with a car. Food and drinks are average and expensive. Staff is sub-average, unfortunately, and I don't have high standards. Even after a week there, with the same it was difficult to get a smile sometimes. Reception staff was very helpful though. Loved the wildlife there, but you may not... Birds all around, iguanas crawling everywhere. I even found a scorpion in my suitcase :-# Underwater is amazing: see horses, turtles, octopusses... did I mention fishes ? Anyway, get a car to stay there. For food, I'd recommend going to Sol Food #short walk) or the Bahia at Lagun Beach.

property and staff are great, but don't eat here!

Would recommend Thu, Sep 19, 2013
my husband and i actually wandered through a lot of the resorts on the island, out of curiosity, and as far as the property and ambiance are concerned, definitely felt we made the right choice with KH Lodge. reasons to choose: - you prefer some quiet on the sand to being surrounded by masses of humanity at all times. - artful rather than cheesy decor - spacious rooms are actually suites rather than generic this-could-be-anywhere plastic spaces - staff are very accommodating and professional. but i'm docking the KHL 3 stars for its food, which is: 1. exorbitantly overpriced, bland fare. $15 US for bread, cheese, and a couple of slices of tomato that had barely turned a pale orange-pink. so tasteless, even famished i could do no more than pick at it, and left 3/4ths of it on the plate. that was the worst offender, but the rest of the food did not rise much above that level. 2. the 12% service charge. this fee is added to all food ordered at the hotel, and it looks and sounds like tip, right? in fact, where tip is included at other restaurants on Curacao, it's 12%. but nope. the "service fee" is actually a resort fee. the money goes to the HOTEL, NOT to the staff. which means: a. the food is 12% MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE PRICE ON THE MENU, and b. what's even worse, this misleading labeling means that i bet a lot of people mistake the 12% for tip, and either leave nothing more or very little extra. that means the KH IS SHAFTING ITS WAIT STAFF OUT OF THEIR TIP SYSTEMATICALLY. we verified this information with the front desk, and were subsequently mortified to learn that we'd therefore only been tipping a couple dollars each time, as opposed to the 15-20% we thought we'd been doing. so, while on the basis of the property and (shafted) staff, i'd rate the KHL a 5, on the basis of its a) terrible & overpriced food and b) dishonest & unethical labor practices, i'd give it a 1. if you do decide to stay here, try the restaurants nearby instead: Sol Food, Jaanchie's... you'll eat much better, pay much less, and maybe even rest better.

We spent three nights and found the location to be amazingly spectacular. The resort is well laid out and the staff are friendly and helpful. We thought the food was a bit limited. My partner has dietary restrictions and we made it work but this is something that could be worked on given that the resort is secluded and not near much and a cab to downtown is some $60 (USD). All in all we had a great time and would certianly consider a return visit.

Just OK!

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 9, 2013
The hotel complex is very nice. Nice landscaping and location, awesome beach and ocean. The rooms are a little dated. A lot of dings on the furniture, worn out beds, dead bugs squashed all over the walls, broken shower head and an old TV. All acceptable, but not for a 5 Star Resort. The service was the problem. Upon arrival, we were booked into a Garden Villa far away from the ocean, despite having paid upfront for an Ocean view room. Only after complaining and long waiting did we get an Oceanfront room. About half of the staff was wonderful, very nice and helpful. The other half was the complete opposite: Unhelpful and seem to not care about the guests at all. This was apparent on some days in the restaurant. It was a hit or miss and you had to look out for who was working that day.
