Loads of Charm, a Little Rough on the Edges

Really enjoyed our stay - would recommend it and would return. There were a few issues to be aware of though -- the room we were in was a "deluxe" room which only had one, shuttered window, and did not have sufficient light (natural or otherwise). The room was relatively clean, and the grounds are extremely charming. We did not stay anywhere else in Curacao to compare it to, but the room itself would be akin to a two or three star room elswhere -- but the grounds and location make up for it.

Wonderful Location in town

We wanted to be in town, not on the beach, so we could walk and enjoy the city. We were not disappointed. You couldn't get much closer to the center of things. The Hotel itself, is lovely, with wonderful gardens, restaurants and strolling avenues as well as pools. A few nights a week the restaurant has live music, which was excellent--first rate. The staff was outstanding and so very friendly, they learned our likes and dislikes very quickly and were so accommodating and cheerful. Our only problem had nothing to do with the hotel, the temperature and humidity was a bit warmer than we like, but otherwise the stay was perfect.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The boat trip to klein curacao can be arranged through the front desk for a day trip. Worth every cent! Bounty adventures has the very best staff and the food was incredible! You even get to swim with sea turtles for the day!

Great location, wonderful ambiance, barely adequate room

I loved this hotel's location -- just off the vibrant waterfront -- as well as the Dutch-village design and courtyards, which are unique and give it European ambiance. The staff was courteous and helpful, especially the attendant at the front desk, who was invaluable in planning my excursions. However, my room, admittedly a Super Saver, was barely adequate. It was small, musty and had little storage space. It was nothing like the one shown on the Web site. There had obviously been a major water leak, as evidenced by stains on the curtain top and the ceiling, and the top of bathtub drain came off and never did go back on properly.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Dining alongside the Queen Emma Bridge is decent and reasonable, especially if you want to have a drink and linger for an hour or two. It is fun to watch the massive cruise ships entering and leaving the narrow harbor entrance. Ocean-front dining is pricier but generally worth the added cost.

Exceptional and unique

This facility resembles a small village located within the city of Willemstad because it is a wonderful restoration of a former residential area. It is quaint with a definite Old World look and feel. It has a natural outdoor ambiance in spite of its 'urban' location which is convenient for exploring around the harbor, shopping and dining in the Otrabanda and Punda areas. Many amenities including multiple restaurants, pools, gardens, museum, live music, spa, etc are located within the hotel-village. Rooms (houses) are unique, varied and individually furnished. We experienced top quality service with friendly, professional, well trained staff. This is a great place where we would love to stay again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Although it's nice to dine at some of the waterfront restaurants for their location, we ate at two of the hotel restaurants and found them to be high quality and good value.
