My husband and I chose this resort because of its location - away from the main city and surrounded by greenery. We made the right choice. The hotel provided us with welcoming rooms and views. The resort was very clean - I even saw the leaves on the beach being raked to keep it pristine. The staff was very friendly...

We wanted a higher end hotel on the island of Curacao. We found it in the Santa Barbara. It is a beautiful resort with added benefit of a great location. It is a little ride from the airport, about 30 minutes, although you get to see a little of the country on the way so it wasnt so bad. Our...

Overall the resort is nice, but the good and the service is unbelievably bad. Who wants to sit and wait for fiod for three, yes three hours when you should be at the beach? Drink refills? Ha! Why have a beautiful resort and ruin it with such seriously bad and slow service??

Great resort, price is excellent, staff are all great. Golf is excellent and wildlife too! Nothing better! Food is excellent and hot. Nice to have hot water and room near the beach. Need a taxi to do any excursions, bus to town. Pam and Chantelle

Physically very nice resort but their operations are poor. For example, we reserved two adjacent rooms (for our kids) but were given rooms each in a separate building and "sorry we are full". Then four days later, when the adjoining room became free, despite being promised this room, we almost didn't get it because the room was not serviced that...

This was my second trip to this resort. I travelled here solo in 2012 when it was a Hyatt and did so again this year. The grounds are immaculate. The beach and pool areas are lovely and the rooms are still impeccable. The service here still continues to be the best I have ever experienced in the Caribbean. The food...

Very Beautiful. Off By itself. We did do all inclusive, and I had no issues. Lunch in Medi was disappointing. Service in SHORE was DEPLORABLE every time, with no apparent reason. Sea Traditions Spa Rooms were the ultimate, and worth the money and the "private" pool was exactly that many times.. most times we were the only ones there. The...

went there on my winter holidays. the resort is beautiful, rooms are spacious, clean, with a small terrace. Stuff is really friendly and helpful. You have to be patient, cause in the restaurants of the resort the service is really carribean style, not in hurry at all.. couple of times it took 15 min to get a coke at lunch...

Old Quarry, the golf course is challenging, unique and very beautiful. On certain holes as you gaze at the craggy landscape and huge cactii, you would swear you're playing in Arizona and then you turn around to see beautiful harbor and ocean views. Be sure to bring your international GPS watch or a laser range finder because the carts are...

I traveled to Curacao for the first time and was quite surprised to find this fantastic hotel. The staff was friendly but they do move on their own time. The rooms were very modern, luxurious and clean. The restaurant had a great selection of fine foods. The bar by the pool area was my favorite place to eat. The fish...
