Kontiki Beach Resort Curaçao4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This place a small piece of paradise. We stayed for 10 days at Kontiki. The hotel staff is really friendly and willing to help. They were kind to us and attentive. The grounds and room were very nice. It's not a conventional hotel. The rooms are set up in huts, making your room seem more private. It has lucious vegetation throughout the grounds. The pool is saltwater and runs between the huts. It's something out of a movie. Taxi rides from here to downtown are $15. Same coming back. Double that for the airport. We enjoyed our stay at Kontiki and we would recommend this resort to anyone.
Well located (5 min by car to most of the nice spots (Mambo Beach, Jan Thiel, City center). The hotel is awesome, attention is good, room is pretty, clean, fancy and spacious. The hotel beach (Cabana Beach club is pretty good - and had a barbecue day which was awesome).
I used to think such rooms do not actually exist: parking lot views, construction site next door, and smelly bathroom. They do exist -- at Kontiki. Fair enough they moved us to another room, although after two days. Not a great start. Rooms are minimalistic to the point of feeling empty. Food is medium to low quality and way overpriced. $20 buffet breakfast for a youth hostel selection of cold cuts did not do it for us. But that seems to be their philosophy anyway: They will charge you for everything and right away if possible. After taking a $500 deposit (for a fully prepaid rate) they even asked for a $15 down payment on a <$100 excursion. That's a waste of everybody's time but exemplifies their approach to treating their guests -- like youth hostel kiddos.
I was there 4 month ago and I came back with the hole family 4 months later. The resort is exceptional. It was built like a natural park with lots of vegetation, pools made with stone all around the area, rooms made of wood and lots of nature. The white sand beach is just aside and the restaurant offers an excellent breakfast bar and restaurant. The Sea Aquarium is in walking distance and there is a small shopping place right on the beach. It is very recomendable for families with kids. If you have small kids, there is just one additional bed allowed per room.
Our stay at this hotel was very good. We have visited other Curacao hotels but have never experienced a better value for money. The hotelrooms are very clean spacy, nicely decorated and well equiped. The hotel exterior is well maintained and the staff is very friendly. As a guest of this hotel including the full service optoom, you can also make free use of the luxury beds of Cabana beach and the beautiful beachclub Mood, where the staff is also very friendly and interested in their guests. The direct acces to the beautiful beach was a perfect addition to our stay. Furthermore the hotel is located near Mambo Boulevard, which is very convenient and gives you the opportunity to make a nice walk or shop whenever you wish. Our next visit to Curacao will definitely again be with Kontiki Beach Resort!
The location, amenities, staff, food, and events were all absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend this location highly enough - the fish market on Fridays is definitely not something to miss, and the cocktails (particularly at Mood beach) were among the best I've ever had. The rooms are large, and all have balconies overlooking the internal network of lagoon-style pools, which were great! The hotel is a short walk from a cluster of great restaurants and from Ocean Encounters (a dive shop with plenty of options for total beginners and experienced divers alike). I recommend renting a car so you can easily see the rest of the island. Parking is easy and free!
on a very special spot on this island you can find a heavenly place, beautiful gardens en swimmingpools next to a white beach with blue water. Nice people surround you to make your stay unforgetable. Clean and nice are words that fits. But the noises from the beach could be a little bit less, music is nice but does it have to be untill 3 in the night? During the daytime it is very nice to be there, with lots of possibilities for drinks and food of a good quality. It is a place to tell your friends!
One of my favorite vacation place is kontiki😍Because of the people the water the beach the room a lot of restaurants serve good food and good service... everything👍🏽 Good service is good business Many many thanks to you all. Great job
I can be very short: As of minut 1 on the resort you forget all the daily topics which were the cause that you were counting the days to you're well deserved holiday. The staff is friendly, service is very good, housekeeping take their jobs serious ( it's really nice when you return form the beach or a day on the road and your room is cleaned, and organized again). In addition: the service at the bar and restaurants is very good as well. Ordering a lunch, snack of just a drink form your lounge bed at the beach is just perfect!
It was a very very great stay in Kontiki. The people of the resort were very kindly! The resort was more than clean (they clean 2 times a day). It was perfect located (just 2 minutes walk to the beach). The swimming pools were adorable and they looked also clean! It feels we were like in heaven! The breakfast was on the beach and you could eat whatever you want! We had to leave the room at 11.00 am, but we flied at 7.00 pm, so we had to stay somewhere. They said us we could take a shower if we wanted and put our luggage in a locked room, so we could swim in the swimming pool or go to the beach on the day we were leaving. It was very kindly of the resort and well done! Sometimes (the weekenddays) we couldn't sleep well because of the loud music on the beach. But even that, it was a memorable stay!!!
