“Well-placed oasis for independent travellers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Friendly and helpful staff (thanks to Flor Marie and the rest of the front desk staff for birthday arrangements including a cake that magically appeared in our room) who made us feel at home. Great to have a kitchen, tons of room (Royal Garden Suite, #33), private deck, lovely and uncrowded pool to refresh in the afternoons. Hip and happening place, yet remarkable quiet in the rooms. Wifi was an excellent perk, as were the plentiful beach/pool towels, and the Friday afternoon (1800-1900) happy hour for guests. Sjalotte, the onsite restaurant, was a lovely setting to look at, and turned out to be the place for the finest meal of our 10 days on the island.

Floris' location is really well-placed for a quick trip into Willemstad (5 minutes to drive and park on the Otrabanda, then head over to Punda via bridge/ferry), pop up the beaches (try Laguna, Kokomo, Grote Knip, Cas Abao) up the coast (we highly recommend NOT going SE of Punda), supermarket nearby. Beach wasn't so close, but we really wanted to be more out of the way (i.e., away from town), so that didn't matter to us.

Great stay at a mellow and right-sized hotel. Pampering like a big place with a small hotel feel. We kept feeling so lucky that we had chosen so well.

Room Tip: We were in room #33, which is an "end" room. Problem with that is the side door from the...

We staid 2 nights in the Floris Suite hotel which was good. It is a small scale hotel with generally friendly staff. We booked 2 junior suite pool rooms but on arrival we received 1 suite pool which was upgraded to a bigger suite and 1 garden. As we booked at the hotel website directly and have had received confirmation the hotel could not do anything else than admit a mistake, although they tried! Only after long discussion we received a small discount for this. On check-out a we were expected to pay almost 100 usd for both rooms together as extra charge for the room cleaning! When I questioned this I received an answer that this is normal in all hotels in the world...by accident I am a diamond member at the Hyatt and friendly told told the lady I stay very frequent in hotels for business and never ever I have seen a charge like this, my comments were laughed away. Don't get me wrong, I know cleaning staff is often underpaid and hence I leave often a cash tip for them. All with all the hipol is nice but expect to pay unexpected charges! There are many better value for money hotels on Curacao.

Dear EdwindG,

Thank you for your review. We feel that there might be some confusion on what happens to be Tax and service charges. All our rates, like all other hotels are rates without tax and service charge. Our reservation system also mentions this clearly at time of booking. We are glad you liked the hotel and found the staff friendy. Floris Suite Hotel offers a very high value for money that one does not easily find anywhere else. We certainly hope to welcome you back one day.

Visited for diner. Fine dining for a matching price. Perhaps not cheap, but certainly good. Menu is a bit limited, but the wines are excellent.

A nice secluded hotel with spacious rooms in a beautiful garden, a bit outside the mainstream tourist environment (one hour walk from centre of Willemstad). Good food and a very helpful staff, especially the reception.

Floris Suites is a wonderful hotel and we were treated very well. Our accomodations were very nice. The staff is very professional and courteous. They care about their hotel and the guests. The grounds are lovely and the kitchen amenities such as a stove, microwave, full refrigerator, place settings, were indeed a pleasant surprise. In our two night stay we experienced professionalism and warmth from the front desk to the bar to the dining room. It is a quiet venue away from the hustle and bustle of town life and the casinos. If that is what you like you will be very pleased at Floris Suites. The flat screen HD TVs and free wi-fi alone will bring us back to this property. If you go - be sure and say hello to Shariluska -- she very nice with smile.

This is a beautiful luxury hotel just a quick drive from Willwemstad. The rooms are beautiful, technology up to date, and there is a WONDERFUL restaurant on sight (to bad however, that some guests can't figure out that you do not go to a formal restaurant in ragged shorts and t-shirts). Plusses: The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. They are just awesome. The pool is quite nice. The decor is nice as well, though at times a bit sterile. On the downside, the private beach is so-so, with snorkeling, but not good snorkeling. That is a shame, in that Curacao is a diving/snorkeling paradise. Also, the feel is a bit...homogenized. No, you don't, thankfully, have the casino crowd there, but really, when you stay on the campus, you might as well be in the united states. There is nothing to remind you that you are overseas, and there is a beautiful island culture to explore. Kitchen facilities in the room were adequate, but sparse on utensils, silverware. This was our second time to the island. Last time we stayed in the more low key back Westpunt area. When we go back again, that is probably where we will stay, as we tend to be very self sufficient tourists, who rent a car, make our own meals, and love to explore. Still, none of that is the fault of Floris. Just a matter of different tastes. This is a great place if, for you, vacation is all about being pampered.

Floris Suites is a great hotel for those travelers that like to have great amenities without the casino crowd and even an ability to make a few of your own meals. it is located within a few minutes drive of Willemstad on a fairly quiet bay. For those travelers who are looking for a little more immersion into the local culture, who are self sufficient and not into the tourist areas, and want to make many of their own meals, the hotel might not be what they're looking for.

This was our second trip to Curacao and second time to rent a car on the island. Our first trip we stayed in the Westpunt area which is definitely more low key, away from the casino crowds and tourists and more to the liking of those wanting to dive and snorkel.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and after a few requests for pans and knives and other basic kitchen essentials we were able to make a few of our meals. The grounds are lovely and filled with lizards, birds and beautiful vegetation. Sjallots the hotel's main restaurant makes wonderful meals and there are plenty of places to grab drinks while lounging at the pool or in the lobby.

While they have WiFi on sight or room didn't get good reception so we spent a bit of time in the lobby catching on on things back home.

They are not located on the beach but they say they have a private beach just a short walk away with restaurant on sight. It is a small beach and it is open to the public who pay a fee to use it and eat at the restaurant, so it was very crowded on the weekend. In my opinion you will want a car to explore some of Curacao's many other beaches and snorkeling spots.

So overall I would recommend the hotel to those looking for a good vacation near the tourist hotspots and Willemstad. For those wanting to get away from those areas look at Westpunt. I would also highly recommend renting a car with GPS. It seems there is always road construction on the island and the GPS came in very handy for rerouting and especially for getting over to the sights east of Willemstad.

Room Tip: I would assume the closer you are to the lobby the better your chances of WiFi in your room. Those r...
