Just breakfast buffet could of been better. Omelet was over cooked, pancakes were cold

Unique hotel unlike any I’ve ever stayed at. Beautiful setting with gardens and pools around 4 room buildings. Right on beach with restaurants and things to do such as snorkeling and diving. Friendly, helpful staff. Curacao is a very nice vacation destination. Only issue is people are smoking everywhere-beaches, restaurants, buses, etc. Need to have some non-smoking areas for those of us that want fresh air on vacation rather than smoke. Would recommend Kontiki Beach Resort to others.

We loved this hotel! Spacious room with huge private wrap around porch that opened up to a walkway leading out to the incredible saltwater pools. Felt like we were staying in the jungle! Also great restaurants and beach amenities - connected to the Mambo Beach Boulevard so no shortage of things to do and see!

The saltwater pools, overhung with palm trees, outside of every room make this a very restful place to stay; the fact that the rooms are in small clusters with balconies, rather than running along an anonymous corridor, is also extremely pleasant. The staff is also friendly and quite helpful. I wouldn't give the food at the restaurant any extraordinary marks - it's OK, but no more than that - but it is next to a beach and there was a night of some very good entertainment. Altogether, a happy-making place to stay.

Great hotel, located 10 Minutes to the center of Curacao. All staff was very friendly except for the housekeeping staff, they were not so friendly and did the cleaning late or were with a bad attitude. The Wifi could be better at the rooms and the AC Could be located better so the air doesnt go on your face directly. Besides these everything was great!

At first when we arrived the area it is in didn't look appealing. Once we saw the room and the rest of the resort we were pleasantly surprised. The room is small but the bed is comfortable the place was clean. The beach area is nice, restaurants and bars onsite and right next door. Would recommend, something they need to work on is the service in their plces to eat.....very slow, otherwise the food was good and the wait staff very helpful and plesant.

Short walk to beach, shoppes and food. Had a few issues with "room deposit" still have not recieved my $100 deposit back.

We really loved this hotel and would definitely recommend it. The grounds and rooms are true to the photos. The beach was a little crowded; it's rather small for the number of guests but it doesn't matter too much. Being a full service beach all that matters is that you get a lounger, right? Rooms are spacious and the lagoon pools are beautiful. We went with the Full Service and received a beach bag full of goodies that you would find in a mini fridge. The public bus stop was right out front and would get you into town super cheap and fast. The food we ordered at the hotel was very good, except the buffet breakfast; if its not included, order a la carte. The staff at the beach & the restaurant were great & the bellboy was very nice. The front desk staff tried and they seemed nice, however, after confirming our airport pick-up no one showed up leaving us disoriented after two long flights. They did make up for it by covering the cost of our cab. The other thing we didn't care for was that, when we told them we would pay as we go for incidentals, they actually charged a $100 deposit on our credit card (not a hold) which they then never reimbursed even after confirming, once again, with the front desk when we checked out that we had incurred no charges and the amount would be refunded. I ended up having to email them when we got home and request the refund. While mostly well-meaning, I just think the frstaff lacked attention to detail. I would definitely stay here again, though!

The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable and big. The king bed is two beds joined together which makes it weird to sleep because there's a dent in the middle. The restaurant is not owned or operated by kontiki and the service is slow slow slow! They have some sort of agreement with the hotel so people can charge their food and drinks to the rooms. Some waiters forgot our orders or took forever (island time?). Drinks were weak as well. We had to send our drinks back twice because they didn't taste like any alcohol. Also, the beach is part of the hotel and you need to pay for the beach beds and some of the beds are falling apart. The day that we were leaving, when paying for the things we consumed ( drinks, food) the main desk didn't have an itemized receipt and had to call the restaurant for them to bring all the meal receipts, which was odd and took a long time considering we had to go to the airport. I think kontiki was opening their own restaurant the next day which will streamline this process. Overall, the hotel staff was super nice, the pools were absolutely amazing and never crowded. Beach was ok...

they played super loud disco music in bar below our room til 5am 4 out of 7 nights! ugh!
