NiCe staff, really old hotel

The rooms, pool and the rest of the hotel is really old and needs a lot of work and update. The staff is really helpful but there's nothing they can do about the lack of maintenance

Great location

The location was on the ocean in Punda and near the waterway where ships move past to dock at the inland harbor. It was an easy walk to shops, restaurants etc. The Plaza is an older hotel but maintained well and quite clean. It has a nice pool area as well. The maids were great but the reception and restaurant staff were quite laid back. I would happily stay at the Plaza again.

Food is quite expensive since everything is imported (no local production). Walk past the local fresh produce market (floating market) and there is a large building housing a number of local eateries (under one roof). The food is safe, good and inexpensive.

Enjoyable stay

Good location for my first visit to Curacoa. Rooms were sufficient. Staff friendly and helpful. Although I prefer "on the beach" locations, we did have a view of water and the ships coming and going to the waterway passage. Once out of the Hotel, only around the corner to the waterfront and shoppes. We also discovered excellent Restaurants nearby and out of the busier tourist area.

Leave the hotel and go around the right. Looks like a fancy version of a strip mall. We enjoyed the Drunky Fish and Fireside restaurants. Many others there also although we did not try these.

Clean- Great Location

It's exactly what I thought it would be. -An older hotel. The rooms were basic but very clean. The staff took great care of us and helped schedule excursions. We were also just steps from all of the downtown action. If you want "all-inclusive" amenities- pay A LOT more and go somewhere else. But if you want a clean hotel that's in a great central location for a good price- stay here.

Schedule excursions as soon as you get in town!! If you try to "wing-it" you may miss out on some great day trips!

Curacao 02/14

+ GREAT location in Punda, variety of foods can be found just around the corner (especially the Italian place when you take a right from the hotel, excellent food and great service!), nice little quiet beach nearby, famous Emma bridge around the other corner, walking distance to shops and Otrobanda, very quiet and peaceful place most of the time. We had two rooms and there was a door in between them so it could be opened up as a one big room - dirty windows you couldn't see through them, cleaning ladies would come when they wanted (Caribbean style I guess), and every other day there was a floor towel and every other day there wasn't. Expensive breakfast (15 USD), every Friday night quite loud disco / dj / band. Some of the staff were better at customer service than some other. In our other room there was no refrigerator nor tea making facilities even though they were the same price rooms ...but all and all an ok stay. You don't go to the Caribbean to spend time at the hotel room..
