This quaint hotel has become our "home" on Curacao. Just completed an eight night stay; we see no reason to stay anywhere else. Location is convenient. Right on the ocean, short walk to downtown area, buses and taxis always available directly in front of the hotel, (Budget Car Rental also on premise), quality restaurants within walking distance. Snorkeling is fairly good right off the private beaches, especially just beyond the rock pier and ropes. We stay in the Blue Wing, (rooms on the pier) which provides a great view of the whole property and ocean with easy beach access. Our room had already been upgraded and as we were leaving, the rest of the Blue Wing was being upgraded.
This is a full service hotel, with plenty to do, drink, and eat, yet small enough that the staff knows your name and/or room number. Guests are diverse, with the majority being Dutch. Language no problem, as staff seems to speak all of them. If you are looking to party loud and long into the night, this place is probably not for you; but, if relaxation, romance, quality, and service is what you seek, this is the place. I do wish the Coffee Factory would open an hour earlier though.
