If you are looking to have a pampered vacation of relaxation, beaches, wine, dine, sun, and fun, feel pampered, and have your needs attended to, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU. I was attracted to the hotel by the pics which exuded a hipster ambience and it did have that. But

A great, chic boutique hotel in Petermaai (the best neighborhood to stay in Curacao - walking distance to tons of great restaurants and the historic district, a short drive or kombi ride to beaches, still undiscovered by the cruise passengers). I can't speak highly enough about

I enjoyed my stay at the BijBlauw. It has shabby chic feel, but is updated enough to be comfortable. The reviews for this hotel were mixed, so I’ve listed my experiences below. Getting there- the only app that works properly to this location is Google Maps. Waze is useless here

I booked three nights here for my husband and I on our first trip to the island. I chose a three-room suite on the second floor, overlooking the neighborhood and it was beautiful. We could have stayed here comfortably for weeks since it had a full living room, kitchen, and

The hotel is in a good location for the centre of Willemstad. It's not a beach location as the oceanfront is rocky. You have to travel to the beach (nearest is a 10 minute bus/taxi journey). Staff are very pleasant & helpful. Room 4 (City View Suite) was spacious and

It's relatively close to nightlife but is simple lodging. I believe there are better choices to select that are more contemporary, especially in light of your 30th birthday celebration,

It is really easy to park int he area around. and yes. the hotel is perfect for a birthday...there are lots of lovely bars and restos very close...and the restaurant at the hotel is perfect. Gorgeous outdoor setting with waved crashing, great service and wonderful food. Getting a car is very easy...and very easy to park. There are fantastic beaches 1/2 an hour away on the west side--well worth the excursion a few times at least if you are there for a week.

To park free of charge, it´s on a spot on the street. But we found it easy to park, there were several spaces just in front of the hotel.

Thank you for your interest! Like mentioned, Avila beach is the best beach in walking distance (+/- 8 min.). For the other beaches, we recommend to hire a car or to take a bus. A car is the easiest way to discover the island and you can find the beaches within a 10 minute drive to an hour. A personal tour with a local guide is also an option. We work together with a local diving instructor, who can create a personalized diving trip. He knows the best places for diving. Next door you can rent snorkeling equipment. And last but not least; we have beach towels for you. Saves you an extra kg in your luggage, where you can put your snorkeling set! If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a great day!

Thank you for your question. Our Comfortable Medium is a room that has a living room and separate bedroom. So more spacious and cozy at the same time. If you can send an email to our info mail, we can send you some pictures so you'll have a better vision of this room. Looking forward to your email. Warm regards, BijBlauw

"Room 12 is small. The terrace is private and very large. not a panoramic view but saved our trip"
"My room didn't have any view, but that's fine - just go outside!"
"Rooms facing the street will be louder (obviously) from traffic, but birds are usually what woke us up in the mornings!"
"Go for the biggest you can afford. The suites are good size, but we saw other rooms in smaller categories that looked quite small."
"I stayed in a basic room which faced the restaurant area, and they even added an extra table for me to work."
US$115 - US$248 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
