This resort is located a stones through from the Lion's Dive bar that has live bands rocking your room Thurs. through Sunday. We could not sleep. The parking was a quarter mile away over a bridge and up a hill. The management had lots of rules as it is a Mexican based timeshare. It felt more like going to Catholic...

We stayed in a villa for 2 weeks. Great, quiet resort (except on weekend evenings when music from places across the lagoon can be intrusive). Staff friendly, rooms spacious with good A/C and well-equipped kitchen. Hot tub, kidney-shaped pool (~17m at longest), and private beach. Nearby gym for $25 per week. Some limited activities, daily shuttle to Willemstad, free daily...

Wonderful place. Great accommodations. It is close to food, close enough to Punda, right across from the best beach on the island. Snorkeling from resort is as good as upper island, (or better). Private beach where you can watch the fun happen at the beach bars, or walk 2 blocks around the water and enjoy yourself.

The grounds are spectacular and well maintained. Spacious rooms, with all the amenities. The problem is, it partly operates as a time share, and caters to American retirees. The restaurant is awful. The staff is very nice, but I had Frutti di Mare, which was basically supermarket seafood, with tomato sauce out of a can. There's a great restaurant nearby...

We had the most amazing presentation with dinner one evening at the poolside. The theme was carnival and the entertainers dressed in the Curacao carnival tradition. What a wonderful way to experience the culture and tradition of the most festive event of the year on the island.

Recently stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium resort. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The location was perfect for some of the attractions that we wanted to see. It is only footsteps from the resort to the Curacao Sea Aquarium. One of our reasons for selecting the resort was that we wanted to swim with the dolphins. On our...

Smaller resort, less people. The staff is excellent: friendly, helpful beyond normal, and very upbeat. The rooms were well maintained and cleaned and the accommodations were timely and available at our convenience. My wife liked it so much, she bought a peak week.

We stayed here a few years back,and it was great . Smaller but right on the beach and a little way out of town but was walkable even though we had rented a car for a few days. At that time we were right by the Aquarium and also a topless beach which we weren't told about until we got...

Spent a week at the Royal Sea Aquarium after exchanging my timeshare week with Interval International. Found the staff to be quite friendly and accommodating and most of the resort units to have terrific water views! The resort offered several very nice amenities such as free shuttle service both to town and to the grocery store which is most helpful...

My wife and I stayed here for a few days on our first trip to the island. It is definitely one of the better resorts. It is kept very clean and tidy. The private pools and beach helped make this special as you didn't have to deal with cruise ship tourists. Security was also very good. The views......WOW. The breakfasts...
