I own a home in Curacao so I visit often. My home is rented so I tried out the Plaza Hotel. I bought it as part of a package with a subsidy. I would not pay over 100 dollars a night for this place. The location is great. The security is great too. I liked the pool area and the young guy bartender was excellent. The maid was very nice. The room was a good size.
There are a lot of negatives which could be easily looked after. One, this place needs some ice machines- one on every floor, going to the bars for ice is a hassle. Two, buy some de-humidifiers so no mold grows on the ceiling in the halls. Three, the whole place needs some paint. Four, don't use older people who can't speak english as a bartender on off days. Five, happy hour should be 2 for 1 drinks like every other place, not just a discount. Six, make sure all the safes in the rooms work. Seven, buy new TVs in every room if you intend on being a three star hotel. I would also focus on fixing up the three main floors and worry about tower rooms later. I stayed on the second floor which was a good location.
There is a lot of potential here but the owner and manager need to spend some money before this place is totally run down. I would stay here again if the price was around $80. There is no way it is worth spending more unless there are a lot of these fixes mentioned above.
