Sonesta Kura Hulanda Village and Spa
- What's Included
The hotel Kura Hulanda village and spa was a very unique experience. The hotel had a classic style with it's old style buildings, courtyards and rooms. I had the feeling that not only was, I located somewhere exotic but also in a different time. The place is very beautiful with sculptures and bright colored buildings. The restaurant was good and not too overpriced. Staff was very nice and helpful in all ways. The rooms were very nice but I did feel that they were more of a spot cleaning, than complete deep cleaning. The hotel fitness center, is functional but wasn't use much when, I was there. I was always the only one inside and I had to turn on everything when entering and turn off everything when leaving. If you need someone to watch over you when working out, they probably won't have anyone there. The Wi-Fi was spotty there coming and going for a hour here or there. I went one of my days completely without Wi-Fi. If it wasn't for these few negatives it would have a excellent rating from me. Also there is a excellent museum located on the grounds as well. I would recommend this place to travelers that want more of a feeling of Curacao and it's people.
We are here right now, it is a beautiful, authentic, historic site, with guest rooms interspersed among actual preserved buildings, as well as a lovely pool with waterfall, courtyard with attentive staff, museum and all within walking distance to all the best Wilemstad has to offer! A short drive to the distillery, the beaches, and only 1/2 hr to westpunt beaches and area. LOVE IT!
Great location in a historical setting (UNESCO world heritage) but expected more for the price paid and from reviews read. They advertize a free shuttle to Kura Hulanda Beach Hotel but we were unable to book as they only have 8 places on the bus per day, which is regreatable as one of the attractions of this hotel was the possibility to stay in the city but also go to the beach. Ended up going to Mambo Beach for 50 USD round trip plus beach entry and chairs (another 30 USD). The madero beach club at Mambo beach is excellent. Staff at the hotel front desk were not particularly friendly or helpful (check in was at 3PM, but only got our room at 5PM). Kura Hulanda Museum on site, but no discount for Hotel guests. Room was spacious but very noisy (on the main square). Overall, the Hotel is very poorly kept which is a shame taking into account its historical value and the prices charged.
I stayed at KH a few years ago and you can tell the hotel aged and is showing some wear and tear. The location, however, the is fantastic just a few steps and one is in town. The hotel also has its charm and I should say my room was quite comfortable despite lacking hot water. The F&B services are over priced for the quality offered. Yet I will stay here again on my next visit to Willemstad.
This is a very beautiful hotel with a very different style. I think there is about 60 rooms but they are spread out over many smaller buildings in keeping with the history of the old town center. Our room was huge with many older features but all the modern conveniences we needed. The only thing bad I would say about it was the steps going up to our room on the second floor were not in very good shape. Wooden and very worn, were not positive they would hold our weight with luggage etc. but they did. They have two beautiful pools although the one with the waterfalls was very cloudy and I did not trust swimming in it. Drinks and meals were good but we mostly ate in town. We ate for as little as $8.00 American for two to as high as $120.00. the $8 meal was the small local spot by the floating market and was one of the best meals. The $120 was one of the poorer meals and was at a casino close to the hotel. Most meals were about $30 - $40 for two and were very tasty tried many spots all through the town. Everything is within easy walking distance from the resort for the downtown. We did rent a car to visit some of the more private beaches. They are beautiful and would highly recommend it, snorkeling was very nice with plenty to see close to shore. We also went to the Aquarium it was nice if you have not experienced one before but much like others we had seen. The local beach by the Aquarium is a must to see and sit with a drink ordered from one of the beach barsOverall it was a great trip. Staff at the hotel were very helpful with all our requests. One last thing lol. They advertised an Easter special drink at the hotel bar it seemed a bit pricey but when we tried it found it to be well worth it. There had to be three or four times the alcohol in it that you normally would get and tasted incredible.
