From the moment we stepped onto the property we knew we had found the right place. Our 2 bedroom Villa overlooked the Dolphin pools at the Curacao Sea Aquarium and the open ocean. The accommodations were top rate. Everything from the AC to the appliances worked great.

The resort is located very close to where I was diving and would be less than a 5 minute walk door to door at Ocean Encounters. There are numerous restaurants, bars and beaches in the area so you did not have to go far if you did not want to.
Shuttle service to the market or into town was great and even a bus ride into town was only $3 Guilders.

There are both fixed and portable BBQ's available for use around the property and one was delivered to our back door for us to do a couple of meals on.

There was never an issue getting a deck chair and the pools were clean.

Overall we had a great experience and would definitely go back in the future.

Weather not a problem good or bad. Staff is always fun and positive. Have been here 9 years now and it has been fantastic each and every year. We have never had any bad experience other than sometimes people "reserve" chairs and never use them.

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 school.
We love with the island of Curacao but would choose a resort with more local flavor next time.

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 shuttle to supermarket.

Recommend hire car if you wish to see the interesting parts of the island, or to go hiking, although a few walks are possible starting at the resort and going along to Jan Thiel Bay and beyond.

Free entry to Seaquarium a few metres away where you can see dolphin and sea lion shows. Dolphins often taken out to open sea especially Sunday mornings: great to watch.

Highly recommended.

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.

Room Tip: Choose Aquarium side, you get free shows and still see the ocean. Take the Sub trip, well worth the experience.
