Alot of Tourists at this shopping area, its like a big outdoor shopping mall.

Its the first thing the most of the Cruise ship travellers meet when they come to Willemstad.

But its nice if you like shopping or relax with a coffe or beer.

“Try the ice cream shop with a real Dutch waffle....great Dutch treat!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Riffort Village is a upscale shopping/dining area near the Renaissance Hotel and Casino....good place to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere. However, the ice cream shop there is the best.....next door they are making real Dutch waffles....you order one in the ice cream shop and they make it next door and sent it over....then top with ice cream, fruit, chocolate, whatever and just enjoy this taste of Amsterdam. We have been to Amsterdam so went there looking for this treat...we weren't disappointed. Price was $20 for 2....not cheap but worth it. Nice outdoor tables to watch the passing scene, good service.

“Like being at an outdoor mall”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The transformation they did of the Rif Fort into what can be summarize as a "mall" was amazing. There is shopping galore, as well as some outstanding selections of restaurants. A very lively outdoor lounge is the place to be in the evenings. Be sure to check it out.

“Nice to see but...”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

This place was very pretty but really touristy. It is over priced, and usually crowded when a boat is on the island. It has a few nice shops but if you venture out more there is more to choose from. It is definitely something worth seeing on a trip to the island but not a priority. Steak and ribs is located here and I Highly recommend it.
