The amazing lagoon and the great people on staff made this resort an incredible escape.
First, I’ll start with the lagoon. The water is clear enough to see around 20 feet (or more) away. It’s teaming with fish and even has a few coral. Snorkeling around the lagoon kept us busy for days. As is typical at most resorts, they offer gear, but limit the amount of time you can keep it, so you might want to bring your own snorkel and goggles.
The beaches are a bit rocky in areas, but each beach area had at least one span that was completely sandy. You can avoid wearing shoes if you just keep a look out for that opening. The water itself is calm and clear, so getting in and out is very easy.
We didn’t have trouble finding lounge chairs on the beach or at the pools. Even at mid-day.
Our room was perfect - probably the best view in the resort. We were in the Royal Tower Room 2503, which was convenient to just about everything. Our room seemed to have been recently renovated, which was good. It had a kitchenette, which is unusual at an all-inclusive, but it did come in handy when we had to leave the resort at 6 am for an excursion. We simply packed a plate at dinner, kept it in our fridge and heated it up in the microwave in the morning. Just an FYI, some of the buildings in the center of the resort seemed to have more shabby rooms.
Now, as far as the staff, I’m not sure how they did it, but they knew we were Preferred Club guests and, boy, did they make us feel special. Everything was great starting with check-in. There was a huge crowd at the lobby desk when we arrived and up came someone who asked if we were preferred club. They whisked us into the AC, seated us and provided snacks. They sat with us to check us in. It was a nice “wow” experience.
Then they introduced us to Chucho from the entertainment staff, who then gave us a tour while the bellhops took our luggage up. It was nice because he introduced us to staff and showed us where we could eat right away. From then, the staff was spot on with customer service. Of course, there was the typical slow-ish service for food or drinks while it was being prepared, but nothing out of the ordinary for an all-inclusive.
The hostesses at the buffet especially stood out. They would ask us where we’d like to dine for dinner and make the arrangements for us. If you want to make sure you can get into the restaurants, be sure to upgrade to Preferred Club, because it did seem that there were lines at the specialty restaurants for the most part.
All of the restaurants were good. The Japanese hibachi was probably some of the best of that type of food that I’ve had in the Caribbean. The grill was good for both lunch and dinner. The seafood restaurant had delicious conch dishes. The Italian restaurant was good, but not a favorite. The International Buffet was a little smaller than some resort buffet’s, but it still had a nice variety and the food was tasty. At the Buffet, Daynalisa was always friendly and remembered us. Milagras was especially great and absolutely professional. She helped to make our trip special. One night she even stopped by to make sure we got our table ok and that everything was going well.
The industrial area was a bit more in your face than I expected (I guess oil rigs come in to the harbor for service or something). We could see the oil rig, passing container ships, and the cruise ships when they came in out in the distance from our room. I knew their chief income is oil refining, so I understand… it’s just unfortunate.
Also, be encouraged to explore Curacao. It was as safe as most US urban areas (read as, just be aware of your surroundings) and it was incredibly easy to get around by bus ($1.50 per person?!?!). Willemstad was a cute city.
One last tip, the ATM at the resort is Mastercard. If you need Visa or Amex, you'll have to take a trip into town (or at least the nearby gas station), so don't forget to bring your excursion cash with you.
