My wife and I just spent a week at this Hyatt. We were originally booked for 5 nights, but American Airlines cancelled our flight out, so we were "forced" to stay an additional two nights. This one year old Hyatt is just beautiful. Everything is brand new, and the service is very good. If you are looking for a typical Caribbean beach, or a loud party every day and night, this place is not for you. However, if you are looking for a place to relax, read a book, enjoy a nice pool area, and good food, this is the place for you. As others have mentioned repeatedly, this place is somewhat remote, which is just fine with me. We left the property one day to visit Punda on Queen's day, and I was glad to return to the Hyatt that evening. I played golf twice and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the golf course. The fairways and the greens are all green, with no yellow patches ; nice views too. The only negative about the golf course is the greens do not bite ! My wife and I both used the spa. It was difficult to get convenient times even though we called ahead. In my opinion, the spa is too small for this sized resort.
The rooms are very nice and spacious. When designing the rooms, I would have added a door for the bathroom for some privacy. This makes showering a little awkward. Our departure was very early in the morning. The shuttle bus picked us up at 4:45 am, and we were about a dozen people. They should have a room to offer their guests a complimentary continental breakfast, or at least some coffee, before they head for the airport. If you plan on visiting Curacao, you should definitely consider this Hyatt !
