Recent guest reviews
My girlfriend and i travelled to curacao for her book-singing and we stayed at the San Marco Hotel. Very well situated and good prices, the staff wasnt very nice but the freakfast was delicious we advice that it is just a place to crash if you are looking for something cheap. Good restaurants near by and can get a taxi quickly.
The location of the hotel was great. In walking distance of cafe's, fast food restaurants and the City. Breakfast was good, the ac from the room was good. But the bathroom was a little warm. overall good place to stay.
We thought they renovated the hotel but that was not the case. The rooms were too small and old. The water pressure was to low and no hot water if you plan to take a shower after 8 o'clock. The cleaners will not let you sleep in the morning because of all the noise they made in the corridors. And the front-desk employee where to slow and still do check-ins on paper. You can also forget about the breakfast is you want to eat something good in the morning. I only recommend this hotel if you are on low budget.
I liked the hotel, it is placed in Punda with nearby good restaurants. Breakfasts are rather simple but good enough, some improvements can be made, adding some choices of cold breakfast, ham or cheese for example
We booked six nights at the San Marco hotel, because of its centered place at Willemstad. Boy were we wrong. People at the desk were slow and didn't speak English very good. Room was little and very outdated (definitely not newly renovated as they claim!), bed was terrible!!! We rolled towards each other at night, because of the worn down mattress. Room wasn't clean. Sheets had stains on it, multiple days. Towels also had stains. Shower was small, temperature settings worked badly: either freezing cold or cooking hot. Faucet leaked and dripped water all day long, the air conditioner did too. Breakfast is fine for one time. It's the same every day and contains toasted bread, cheese, ham and eggs. We had breakfast three days somewhere else, just because it was basic and always the same. Only reason we didn't left the hotel is because we've spend all of our time outside at beaches and only came back to sleep or shower. If we return to Curacao we would seek a hotel outside the city center and we would rather pay a bit more for a better room and hotel.
The San Marco hotel is on a top location downtown has a good price range according tot the value they deliver. The hotel feels a little bit cold and there was no click with it. I don't mind because I just want to stay there for one night. But if you are a traveler and traveling alone this is not a hotel where you find easily new friends or getting contact with others. The hotel is located down town and just step out the hotel and there are several nice restaurants. I would recommend this hotel if you have a quick stop over in Willemstad and you want to have the ease access to the city center. About thirty minutes from the airport taxi fee around 50 dollar at night or early morning.
If Inselair left you hanging at the airport, and the only option for a night of sleep is the San Marco, go for it. For any other reason, avoid this place. It is a cross over between Faulty Towers and the creepy hotel in Barton Fink. The bread at breakfast tasted like paper, the waitress... Oh, there wasn't. But I must say that there are CLEAN SHEETS !
The room was good enough to spend a few days and the bed was comfortable. We did not get a good view from the window but the top floors looked like they have a view. The wifi connection was weak and the shower pressure was low.
The convenient location of the hotel is a plus as it is in the center of Willemstad. The price of the hotel was alright and is good if you are looking for a place to rest your head after exploring all that Curacao has to offer. However, the internet connection was slow and sometimes non-existent. I had better wifi from the "free curacao wifi" that was located around the hotel and center. The water pressure was really low, the roof leaked, the toilet paper was one ply and the towels even though they were changed daily always felt a little damp, dirty and cold. The hotel looks like its been around a while but I think you get a good deal for what you pay for. The Casino is on the first floor of the hotel but the crowd was old and the people in there looked sad. Better to spend the time on the streets than in the hotel or casino.
Nice people at the desk and close to the center of Willemstad. Hotel is a bit old but for the money not bad only thing the breakfast. Breakfast not so good just ham, cheese and eggs. Would we stay here Again? Just for one night yes...
