Kenneth the bartender was excellent, terrific drinks, always smiling and very accommodating. He always greeted everyone in Sun Club area. Although at times we had a large deluge of rain, Kenneth would just clean and dry everything and the bar remained open as if nothing happened.
We stayed at the Curacao Sunscape during the week of January 8, 2017. We stayed in a Sun Club room. Sunscape is an older resort that has been renovated. The room was spacious and clean, quiet, the bed was comfortable, the AC and safe worked. The mini fridge was restocked daily and contained four soft drinks, four beers, three bottles of water and a couple of orange juices. The free Wifi worked fine. TV included most US networks. The Sun Club pool was small but nice. Kenneth, the bar tender at the Sun Club pool was very good. Towels were readily available. Note that the Sun Club pool is not an adults only pool.Check-in at the Sun Club lounge was no faster than the regular check in due to the number of Sun Club guests arriving at the same time. The Sun Club lounge is located next to the regular registration desk and supplies a limited choice of snacks and drinks. It is not conveniently located in proximity to where the Sun Club rooms are.Food at the buffet was average in terms of selection and quality. Generally service was not good. It took a long time to get drinks such as coffee and orange juice in the morning. The same problem occurred at the a la carte restaurants. The food at the Japanese and Italian restaurants was good. The Japanese restaurant is the type where they cook your food in front of you. The food at the grill and seafood restaurants was just ok. The quality of alcoholic drinks varied depending on which bar you chose. We found the drinks to be the best at the Sun Club pool bar.The hotel lobby is small as is the lobby bar. There does not seem to be a place where people can mingle.There was musical entertainment at the main pool area each evening between 7 and 9. We did not take in any of the shows that started at 9:00 pm. My wife was disappointed that there was no daily aquasize in the pool.The best part of this resort is the lagoon area that exists between the beach and the man made breakwater. It provides a calm area to swim and snorkel. There are lots of fish to see on the beach side of the breakwater but no coral. There are more fish to see as well as coral on the outside of the breakwater. The resort will not let you snorkel on the outside of the breakwater if you are using their gear. There is a slight east to west current along the outside of the breakwater. Depth is about 20 - 30 feet. The breakwater is about 1,500 feet long and there are no breaks in it to allow you to swim back into the lagoon. I would start at the east end of the beach, swim around the east end of the breakwater and re-enter the lagoon at the west end of the breakwater. Beware of sea urchins along both sides of the breakwater and on rocks within the lagoon.The beach is white sand. The first 10 feet into the water usually has a sand bottom followed by about 20 feet of relatively small flat rocks (didn't see any sea urchins within this area). There is a limited number of paddle boards and kayaks to use. Snorkel gear is also available. There is a dive shop (Ocean Encounters) on the resort. You can take a 3 hour scuba introduction course and a five day certification course. They also offer diving and snorkeling tours.Mambo Beach Boulevard which is a collection of shops, restaurants and beach clubs is located a 10 minute walk east of the resort. There is nothing of interest within reasonable walking distance west of the resort. The resort does provide a morning and afternoon shuttle service to and from Willemstad each day. You need to reserve a spot on the shuttle the day before.Overall we had a good time at this resort.
As a seasoned traveller I would say to take these reviews with a grain of salt. I read lots and anticipated horror but found lots of greatness amongst the not so great. Let me start with the misses for me. The long line for coffee at the coco cafe everyday was annoying and unnecessary. Service in the dining room was definitely unpredictable at best. Sometimes you got a drink, sometimes you didn't, sometimes you were seated at a table with no cutlery and sometimes you had three people taking care of one table. Had a rough experience with one of the housekeeping staff who didn't want to change the sheets on the bed at the 1.5 week mark but we got past that. Now the food. This was just a people are describing. Awful. I stopped eating breakfast after the first week. The fruit is mushy and the same melon/pineapple options everyday. Omelettes were fine but the additions to the omelettes were leftovers and at times consisted of hotdog or peas and corn. Pancakes were inconsistently textured and had lumps or hard spots (weird). Pasta bar also frequently drew long lines as it was the only fresh made lunch/dinner item. Don't know what the burgers were made of but they're really bad! Kids loved the chicken nuggets and ice cream. On to the a la carte restaurants. The Japanese was just average but not entertaining at all. We were rained out of the Oceana (seafood) but the food was ok, Italian was delicious, If you eat at the Grill, go for the chicken sandwich and just keep your expectations low at the buffet and you'll survive. Some people who made my dining experience worthwhile were, AnaMarie, Solmaira and Jeanette in the buffet restaurant. The great: The kids club is fantastic! My 4 & 6yr olds begged to go there everyday and are still missing their teaches now that we're home. Much love to Marvette and Roxy who loved my girls for two weeks and are the primary reason that i'm considering returning again. The beach is heavenly with amazing snorkeling right off the beach and the water is calm and clear partially because of the break wall which makes for great, child friendly swimming. (take some time to feed the fish a little bread or banana from the buffet). Rooms were comfortable but lighting is bad (especially in the bathroom) and there are definitely room for updates. Highly suggest that you take the time to have a photo shoot done with "GI JOE". He's great and you can't beat the price. :-) If you need help at the front desk, see Sheneeda who was lovely and helpful and went out of her way to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. We went to Willemstad twice, once by the hotel free shuttle and once by public bus. There's lots of shopping at "tourist" pricing. Walked to Mambo and Cabana Beaches a few times where we shopped, swam and enjoyed Starbucks treats. Overall I would say that we enjoyed our stay. The positives outweighed the negatives and we really enjoyed Curacao.
If you're coming to this resort, book the Sun Club. If you book the Sun Club, spend your days at either the pool or the beach right outside your door. You cannot beat the service of Kenneth the bartender extraordinaire! He is professional, attentive, courteous, and funny! Not to forget his AWESOME beverages!! Go for the fun, stay for Kenneth!
All inclusive hotel is very nice! The dive shop is on property and picks you up at dock. Hotel is clean, bartenders are fast so no lines. Pool is on small side but beach is absolutely amazing. The reef keeps waves from crashing on to shore and makes for a fantastic oceans pool. So much to see below! Clear vis, DMs are very safety minded and all come from Ocean Encounters. Bus stop is across street from entrance and is easy to navigate downtown! This hotel is within walking distance of ocean encounters main dive shop, The Lions den resort and a boulevard of shops and restaurants.
