Great facilities, but a remote location. Beach is separate from the open ocean. Very pricey to eat there unless you are on the meal plan. Go here if you want all inclusive. Dont if you want to explore the island and want to eat out.

The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort exceeded our expectations by far. We were fortunate enough to have read reviews by other guests before coming to this property, and wanted to give back to others that are thinking of staying here (something we don't usually take the time to do). This property is absolutely beautiful. The staff for the most...

The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort a solid 3 star resort for us, but considered slapping 4 stars onto this review in light of the great deal we got for our recent stay (we booked 5-6 months ago and got a great Black Friday discount on their web-site, meaning we got pretty good quality for the money.) We had...

We stayed here for 3 nights and I was sad to leave! Such a beautiful hotel! We hiked, amazing golf course, private beach.. I can't think of any negative thing to say. It was low season when we went so it wasn't crowded and it felt really exclusive and private. We had an amazing time!

Jaymy and staff run a highly efficient pool bar & eatery. The food is of the highest quality, the cocktails and bottled beer a special touch but the primary driver is the customer satisfaction and abiulity to remember your name. Highly recommended as Jaymy and colleagues are there to serve and ensure the best poossible customer experience. Chris - From...

Resort facilities are very high end with good service. Beautiful beaches, beach beds and clear water. However, due to inlet, flat. No waves. Very remote. $70 cab from airport. Only one non-restaurant near by. It's much better than resort retardants which were expensive and meh. Resort activities are passable (mountain biking and property tours). Would recommend going offsite for paddle...

Stayed here several times for weekends and events. Large hotel, very well kept and maintained, beautiful ground, nice beach and superb service all combine to make this the best hotel to stay on the island of Curacao. The hotel is a bit further away from the city then most hotels, but once you pass the main security gate the drive...

“We stayed in room 1316 which had an amazing view of the beach and ocean. For an even better view try and request room 1318 which had two balconies and even better views (not sure if there is a king bed in there which wouldn't work for a family of 4 anyway).”
