We went primarily for the Delft shop and was amazed to find it in an historic fort. A few good shops but most tacky. Some superb restaurants and bar. Was saddened that the majority of this historic structure was destroyed for a shopping center.

This place had a lot of nice shops. It is clean and well maintained. Best about it for us is that it was decorated for Christmas. A great time to visit.

This fort has been converted to a boutique shopping area and restaurant collection. It is a good visit and a short walk to the bridge. If you are near mega pier, this is a great spot to see along with the mall and casino.

My wife and were cruising the Caribbean and spend a day in Willemstad, Curacao. After having been on a sightseeing excursion of Willemstad we explored the area near the cruise terminal while strolling back to our cruise ship. When we came across Riffort Village we spend some time browsing through the shops and the old fort. You can also enjoy... More

The Rif Fort is just across the Queen Emma Bridge and where most of the cruise ships dock. It's a quaint shopping area and enjoyable. Highly recommend the Delft pottery shop.

I thought this place was very disappointing. I expected something a bit unique and local in flavor and it's just a huge shopping mall, with enormous cruise ship parked outside blocking the view of the ocean if you go up to the wall of the fort to look out.
