Sunscape Curacao Resort Spa And Casino
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I are seasoned travels, having been to the Caribbean yearly since 1995. We traveled to Sunscape Curacao from April 7-14. This hotel is a true 4 star by Caribbean standards. Upon arrival, we learned that we were staying in the Sunclub (at the time we booked it just said deal of the day). Our room in building 8 was very nice - a king size, very comfortable bed with a sitting area and a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. The fridge was well stocked. The air conditioning was excellent, and the shower was always hot. All the employees were very nice but a special mention goes to Kenneth, our bartender at the Sunclub pool! What an awesome man who knows what service with a smile is. Another special mention goes to Bjorn, the waiter at the Bluewater Grill - very professional and made us feel so welcome. I know that all-inclusive includes everything but we always tip. I am amazed by the number of travelers who do not do this!The food at the buffet was good, but the food at the restaurants was awesome! We ate at Oceana, Bluewater Grill, and Himitsu. I highly recommend the Red Snapper at Oceana, and the ribs, crab cakes, and Filet Mignon at Bluewater Grill! The beach is quite nice. You can snorkel right from the beach - nothing spectacular but still enjoyable.Being that we have been to Curacao before, we did not do any side excursions this time; however, the Curacao factory is a great place to visit, and you should really see downtown Willemstad. We took the local bus ($1.50 US per person). Klein Curacao is also a nice side trip but the boat ride is a bit rough.The fitness center at the resort is okay - small, but has everything you need and the hours of operation are good.The WiFi works well in the lobby.We had a great vacation but I will mention the cons:1. We had to wait 2.5 hours to eat at Oceana.2. Kids were allowed in restaurants unsupervised. We witnessed a boy kick a pigeon in the buffet area. Kids should have to be supervised by their parents! 3. The casino is old and out-dated.Thanks Sunscape for a very memorable vacation!
The resort is not the prettiest, in fact, it is rather average to look at. Buildings are dated, but the rooms recently redone, though a little stuffy but still comfortable. We were by the adult pool, so it was a hike to get to our room, but worth it to be away from noise and children. The adult pool was nice, and it had a small bar right there. All staff we encountered were very nice, and were very helpful when our rental car's battery died; the staff helped us with calling a mechanic to get it replaced. The food was decent, nothing to rave about but good for an all inclusive. Parking was free, unlike other facilities which tack on a per day parking fee. There were other activities to keep you occupied, and town was close so plenty to do in the area, though road signs are horrible so it's a little hard to find were you want to go. What we really liked was the private lagoon area with a jetty to break the ocean waves and create a safe and calm place to snorkel. Flippers and snorkel gear included in package, make sure you take advantage! There is a public beach right next door, it is often pretty noisy and sometimes people 'sneak' over to the resort side, but usually there was resort guards watching.It was a nice vacation, but we won't be going back.
We just returned from an 8 day stay at Sunscape Curacao. We traveled with a large group (11 people) of all ages. The resort itself in nice. Rooms were large and clean. We stayed in The Sunclub area. The beach was lovely. We really enjoyed snorkeling several times every single day! We always were sighting new types of fish - best and most convenient snorkeling we've ever seen. It's better to bring your own equipment, as checking our gear for an hour at a time can be a pain.The water was always clear. The beach is rocky in places, but down by the Sunclub area, you can enter without stepping on rocks.The free kayaking and paddle boarding was also a plus. The "towel game" was annoying, as we had to get up early every morning to secure some shade.The restaurants/food were OK. The buffet was not that great, but none of us got sick, which is a plus. We enjoyed the seafood restaurant the most. The staff there were the best - very friendly. The steakhouse (which is the grill by day) has a beautiful ocean view. Japanese was good, and Italian was so-so. The biggest aggravation was trying to get seated! Only the Japanese accepts reservations. For the other 3 sit-down restaurants you either have to line up by 6:15 (first seating), or go back around 8:15! Nobody was explaining this, however, and until we figured it out, we were wandering around for 1 1/2 hours waiting for a table! There is not much entertainment here, so this can be boring for a hungry crowd.The staff overall were pretty indifferent. Not mean, just not as friendly as we are all used to in the tropics. Tipping did not seem to make a difference. Kenneth (Sunclub bartender) was excellent, as were the waitstaff in the seafood restaurant. Service is very inconsistent - sometimes good, sometimes not very good. Sometimes there was coffee downstairs at Sunclub at 8 am, sometimes not. Towels were there some days, other days they were not available until later. Some days we got the extra waters we asked for (and tipped for!) in the room, sometimes not. Sunclub is probably worth it if you don't pay much extra for it. Kenneth was great, and kept us well hydrated! The loungers on the beach were more comfy, and that part of the beach is quieter and not as rocky.Willemstad is a very interesting town. We just took a taxi there and back, as the shuttle fills up fast. Definitely worth spending a couple of hours there sightseeing and shopping. The floating bridge and flea markets were a hit with our family. We liked not having bracelets on for the week. The best part was the beach, and this is inevitably the most important thing for us. The snorkeling was amazing every day - this is what made Sunscape memorable for us. Would we return - probably not, but overall we had a great week in Curacao!
Stayed as a group of 4 April 2017. Rooms were not ready for 3 pm check in, however, it's island time so we took a look around the resort and grabbed some lunch. Stayed in the tower and thought it was a great location. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of towels, mini bar replenished daily however daily cleaning ran late most days. Anything we requested to be done was completed within reasonable time frame. Entertainment was throughout the day and evening started at 7 pm and 9 pm. LOTS of activities on this resort for all! The beach is nice and close to the pool areas. The snorkeling is OK but I think this is due to the break water Wall. The wall ensures safety so one can't argue about that. If you want to snorkel you have to go beyond the wall which is a risk or do an excursion. The food was great, really liked the Blue water grill. The service was wonderful. A little bit of a wait to get drinks as only 1 to 2 persons serving. No big deal as when you were served it was great, especially if Norma served You! Casino was interesting and the resort gave you 3 coupons to use. Took the shuttle bus downtown, wish it would run more than twice per day as it fills up quickly. The city is beautiful and the shopping is great. The vendors are friendly. I have to say I felt safe walking the streets and it was nice to see the cleanliness of the streets, restaurants, etc.what a great place to visit, I will be Returning!
My wife booked this trip 9 months ago. I have been reading reviews here for the past several months and was apprehensive about the trip because of some of the reviews. We went during a very busy time, last week, all rooms were booked.The resort was nice, the beach was beautiful, all the staff we meet were friendly. In short it was a nice relaxing vacation. The food was good (we ate everywhere but the Italian restaurant) I thought the trip was a good value for the amount paid. I have stayed at more luxurious resorts, with more elaborate dining options and paid more for that. I would stay at Sunscapes again.I had a chance to meet Chantilly and it is very obvious she is genuinely concerned that the guests have a good stay.Anthony G
