Sonesta Kura Hulanda Village and Spa
- What's Included
We stayed here in a suite for one week in January 2017. The location is great. You can walk to the downtown area in a matter of minutes and have access to plenty of restaurants and shopping. We rented a car so we could visit the islands beaches and areas outside the downtown. Parking is free and there is lots of space available. The room layout was lovely and we enjoyed the bar fridge in the living area. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It would have been nice to have an extra towel or two in the bathroom- only one towel and facecloth provided per person per day and the living room lighting was terrible. Actually, the floor lamp in our living room didn't even work but was left as an art piece without a lightbulb. The wireless internet is also not great. The hotel is showing signs of age. Our shower would flood the bathroom floor every time it was used. The pool with grotto has chunks of fibreglass rocks missing. It appears an electrical fix was needed and wiring was left exposed. The pool water was merky and always had plant debris. It looks as if some of the trees have died around the pool and need to be taken down. We actually found the pool for kids to be great with almost no one ever there. We only ate at the hotel once - the museum cafe and after the server returned three times to make sure the order was correct and to tell us there was no mango available we ended up with one wrong order and taking over two hours for lunch. Staff were pleasant and helpful throughout or stay. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the downtown and are willing to over look a few maintenance issues this is the place for you.
The Kura Hulanda Hotel has been developed making use of a part of the existing old buildings in Otrabanda. The result is nearly nice. One can wonder through the narrow streets en the gardens which are filled with sculptures. It is a nice change to feel how it must have been in the old days. We have not used the hotel facilities. We only cruised the premisses.
The hotel is located in a number of old houses. The hotel area is nicely constructed with a lot of attention to small details. There are swimming pools, piazza style squares and some art. My room was on the first floor and only accessible through the balcony. Guests walking by can look into the room if the curtains aren't always closed. The room was clean with functional interior and it had a comfortable bed. But it is not a luxury standard one would expect from a four star hotel. The bathroom needs some update: the bathtub is very high, so perhaps difficult to climb into for elderly people, and the shower could be renewed. The staff is nice, but I asked for a wake up call and didn't get it. Wifi is free and stable. The location is good, it's only a short walk to the floating bridge and to the old town of Willemstad and the two little fortresses. I would return to this hotel, but on the other hand, it is too expensive compared to what guests finally get.
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from my stay at this hotel: I'd gone to the spa on a previous visit to the island, and at first glance I thought the facilities looked a little rustic. As I mentioned in a prior review, the massage therapist who ran the place put any doubts right out of my mind.So when I returned to Curaçao in July for a much-needed de-stress-ification, I decided to stay at the KH hotel. And I don't say this often but OMG it was a stay full of miracles.First: there was a beautiful antique four-poster bed with comfortable, clean linens. There was a desk and a plug and an internet connection. There was a clean refrigerator with nothing in it -- no one trying to sell me any kinds of $9 Mike & Ikes or anything, just a fridge. Amazing. And a safe. And did I mention the couch and the armchair yet? tl;dr: It was a beautiful room. Majestic, even.Second: the staff was very professional and very nice and this leads me toThird: the most amazing kitten came to greet me every morning when I drank iced coffee in the courtyard! If the kitten wasn't around when I came out for my morning coffee, the staff would literally go and find the kitten. It was wonderful to have a feline companion greet me every morning in Curaçao, like a little reminder of home. Fourth: The thing that made it all so completely almost ridiculously perfect was the giant soaking tub that I literally had to climb a little step-ladder to get into. This was exactly what I was looking for.And so I am writing this review now because I have just booked a second stay at KH in a week and a half! I am already stocking up on books to read in that perfect tub.
Actually stayed here back in 2015 but it doesn't let you go back that far. Just got around to writing. Stayed for six nights and loved it had a wonderful room and was able to venture out to the city for dinner and small things. The food in the resort is ok same price but better options outside the complex and I do mean complex with key gates and armed guards. Lol. But the city is beautiful and people friendly and complex is well maintained and clean overall a wonderful experience. And btw upon arrival you have to try the fresh fruit drink.
