We stayed here 2/10-2/14/13 for business. All the events were catered by the hotel and were top notch. We utilized the pool, beach, dive shop and all the restaurants. Shor restaurant was absolutely our favorite bar/restaurant with a dreamy view and all open air. The food & service was outstanding! We used the Bella Italiano little store for water, gelato & morning coffee. We went on a Catamaran "dive/snorkeling" trip departing right from the hotel marina. Some of the snorkeling ever. We saw an octopus, shipwreck and multitude of colorful fish. You can also rent masks/snorkels for $10 day (great for kids/parents) and snorkel right from shore at the little beach.
We had a room that had a limited (but beautiful) view of the ocean and the Shor Restaurant/Golf course. We loved everything about the room, the open concept bathroom, the wood plantation shutter sliding doors and room service cleaned our room promptly every day.
Keep in mind this property is VERY remote. We chose to stay in Willemstad for 3 nights prior to explore more the city life.
