Open air, great beach but.....

Snorkeling is a good walk away and all you get is tired, not many fish, small area, don't bother. Beach is very nice. The grounds are very spread out and getting from place to place within resort is tiresome. Open air concept would be nice but it was very hot with no A/C accept in rooms. No water in lobby, must negotiate stairs to get to lower level for food, water, drinks, etc. Service in restaurant was as if forced. Wi Fi iffy in lobby. Expensive but not worth the cost.

excellent stay

great beach, spacious rooms, nice breakfast.we had room 1105 without sea or pool view, but we were situated very close to the pool and beach side. and our terras was on ground floor at quite area. really recommendable, as it comes at lower price. sea view we did get at breakfast or diner time on the terras of restaurant. So you would not miss it from your room.

Beautiful beach, everything else could be improved

My husband and I visited this resort at the end of October for some R&R. The resort itself, the grounds and the beach are gorgeous! The colors are just magical and you truly feel like you're in the Caribbean paradise. However, the resort is a bit isolated from the town and everything else. We did not rent a car as we really came here for relaxation and we ended up taking an all-day tour to see the island as well as booked a cab one of the days to take us to Punda for lunch, sightseeing and shopping. If you're more active or go for more than 5 days DEFINITELY rent a car or you'll go stir crazy. The three restaurants and the italian cafe are just OK. None of the meals wowed me yet the cost is like NYC pricing which I found ridiculous. The service was just OK as well. The cocktails are $10-$13 dollars which I found a bit pricey for an island and the cocktail hours are scarce. Also, they need to invest in bringing event entertainment to the resort otherwise you might as well go to bed at 9pm since there is NOTHING to do after dinner and you are at least 30 mins from the city. The convenience store they have on premises is ridiculously expensive (Sunblock - $26; bug repellent - $11; ugly, poor quality baseball cap - $33). Make sure to bring bug repellent. We were eaten alive and all of the restaurants are outdoors so it made dinners really uncomfortable! Something needs to be sprayed around the premises to deal with this issue. City of Punda was very nice, it was fun walking around and exploring! Overall, decent resort and interesting island but I would stay closer to the city if I ever find myself in Curacao again. I personally thought overall quality of food and service was much better in Aruba.

  • Carlos B :
Ideal Hotel for vacationing in Curcao

The Santa Barbara Beach and Golf resort is a first class establishment. You can just hang out and enjoy the crystal clear ocean with a kids friendly beach. Or after a few days of r & r, you can drive into Williamstat which 20 minutes away and have a great time exploring that area. Also the northern part of Curacao has pristine beaches which you must see. I recommend renting a car so you can enjoy the entire island.

Great views, awesome golf course, great value

Formerly Hyatt Hotel this massive Hotel located on the coast of Curacao has everything you need to spend a good getaway with your family or couple. Great selection of activities like snorkel, golf, fishing, beach sports. Great rooms, beautiful decor, and friendly staff. The only con would be that is located far from the city and the main tourist attractions of this beautiful island
