Beautiful place to get away and relax!

What a great property! Lynette and Missy provided excellent service during our stay, always smiling. The food was great and the pools and lagoon provided a nice relaxing way to unwind. The gym had excellent equipment and an overall great environment to workout.

Mediocre Property

Our stay began with no hot water for two days. Loud music at night outside every night so if you came here for peaceful evenings you are at the wrong place. Staff unaccomodating. Had hot water one full day during our stay. Beach is on an inlet not the ocean. Would not recomend a visit here.

Resort for the day

I purchased a day pass while on a cruise. This place is lovely. I had pizza at the restaurant and was delicious. The service at the pool bar is great. I was at the pool. So many chairs. Would go again.

Second Time Good!

This was our second visit to Curacao and the Santa Barbara. Our week long stay was very pleasant! It started with Brian taking our luggage and helping us to our room. Great job, Brian! The hotel hasn't changed from our first visit 2 years ago. It is still somewhat quiet and we love the seclusion from other parts of the island. We feel a rental car is necessary and travelled throughout the island to explore more snorkelling spots. Service in the hotel was excellent and breakfast omelettes were delicious! Our room was impeccably kept clean. Our only complaint was with the italian restaurant onsite. Apparently not an official part of the hotel. See review on Bella Italia. Should we consider a third trip to Curacao, Santa Barbara would be our choice and we would definitely recommend!

Top notch. Needs a price reduction

We are currently staying here and are expected to leave Sat 3/18.Pros: The Santa Barbara is georgeous, well maintained, friendly staff. Its very secluded. If first time snorkeling, kayaking, diving, you can do it all here. If your experience you will find no adventure here. Mountain biking is a definate adventure here.Large long beach and swim area. Two pools.Drinkable water is awesome here. They have there own desalination plant on the island.Cons:No bus route from hotel so unless you have rented a car your stuck.5.00 cup of coffee. $40.00 buffet. 12.00 for a chicken nugget sandwich. 10.00 for a bowl of oatmeal. Crazy prices. The cost of living is very high in curacao. Much higher than USA. Everything is imported as they have no food industry. Even a burger king will cost you 10.00 for a burger.Good diving spots on the west side is hour 45 minutes away.This is a expensive island.
