We stayed on Curacao for a total of 9 nights, and wanted to spend some time in Willemstad, and some on the beach. We decided for a budget option in Willemstad for our first 4 nights. The Ritz was in a good location for the proximity to the centre of town. That said, more nervous travellers may find the neighbourhood a little un-nerving. We walked every night with our teenagers to dinner and didn't encounter any problems, except at 11:30 one night we were told by a local that we shouldn't be out walking that late in that neighbourhood. The rooms were basic Ikea furniture, with a modern urban minimalistic ambiance. We had a room with two queen beds and an extra single. The single wasn't too comfortable for the kids. The bathroom was small for 4 people to share. I would advise the hotel to put a mirror in the room, so that the only mirror isn't in the bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with the basics. The grounds were very cool, with colonial Dutch buildings, sculptures and a cozy atmosphere. The staff were fantastic. The front desk people were all very helpful and accommodating, but I have to give a big shout out to our housekeeper. My son left his iphone when we checked out. We didn't expect to see it again, but she turned it in to the front desk. We picked it up a week later and left a nice tip for our honest housekeeper. All hotels should do their best to retain honest staff like her. Cheers.
