Relaxing beachfront hotel

Very nice location on the beach not far from town. We walked to town in 20 minutes. Lots of nice restaurants just across the street. Beach on a man made, quiet cove open to the ocean. Staff generally pleasant but not all that attentive. You have to work hard to get their attention. Try to stay in the wing extending into the water. The odd rooms have the sunset views. Shower design was poor, water splashed easily into the bathroom. Good AC. Small fridge and coffee maker in room.

Beautiful, relaxing hotel, great location!

Don't expect a warm welcome when you arrive. People need to "warm" up to you.Good menu in the Pen but it needs to change more. Good breakfast and the people cooking your eggs make them with love and a big smile. A shuttle from the hotel can take you to Willemstad in 10 minutes. Accessible private beach with plenty of chairs. beautiful rooms with ocean view (could use a make-up/shave mirror). The frogs will sing until dawn, take earplugs if you need it quiet! Towels provided as well as bath robes. The only thing you need to do is to relax! Don't go after Christmas, it was chaotic and unpleasant.

Beyond compare

Where to begin? From the moment of arrival, unbelievable. Received a most warm and helpful welcome. The staff are THE most wonderful helpful people! Special mention of Indira, Riley, Jeroen, Bart, Elvis, Marleyson. All of these individuals genuinely care about your stay, your wellbeing and could not have been more wonderful.We did have an issue with the coffee maker in the room, which became comical after a while. After three attempts at getting us a coffee maker that actually worked, we gave up and just got coffee from the restaurant but would have to wait until 7 a.m. for coffee. BUT, having said that, the staff were never unpleasant about it. Quite the contrary..... They tried and tried to make sure that we were happy. Unfortunately, I think they just kept recycling the broken machine but as I said, we were not upset because they were trying so hard to make it right.Rooms are clean, neat, comfortable beds, and attentive housekeeping.We had dinner for two on the beach and it surpassed our expectations. Not only is it private and romantic, the food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. Just the right mix of attentive and yet offering us the privacy to enjoy the very romantic setting!The Schooner Bar staff are fabulous. Just so much fun and so very informative about the island, what to do, where to go.The beach is perfect! Ample beach chairs, never had one problem finding one each day.All we can say is BOOK HERE! You will not be disappointed!We enjoyed this resort so very much that we booked for this December again!

Relaxing Hotel

Good location. 5 minutes by taxi to downtown. We had a room on the "Wing" on the second floor. Nice wiew and the room was modern and comfortable. Breakfast is OK, bu they are not so fast to fill up. You have to ask for it all the time. Restaurant PEN is ok but not so much to choose from the menu. Blues Bar & Restaurant was much better. We liked the food there. Especially the ribs. The pool bra had really good food.Service is good and friendly staff. Very old hotel with serveral different houses.

Great location and wonderful beach

We really enjoyed staying in the blues wing! You had a balcony towards the water and could enjoy the sunset, iguanas and crabs right in front of you. The beach is wonderful with crystal clear water! The staff is friendly and really accommodating. You have walking distance to Willemstad which is nice if you don’t want to have all your meals at the hotel.The only things that could be improved is the breakfast buffet(way too expensive for such a meager spread) and that the service in all the restaurants are so slow! It takes an hour to get a simple sandwich for lunch.
