We were unaware that November is the rainy season (3/6 days of rain). The island is beautiful and the hotel was very nice. The food and drinks were top-shelf but we most especially appreciated the staff - Windell Van Lanten and Piet Isaacs were AWESOME! We've been to many Carribean islands and have NEVER experienced such caring friendly and kind staff! They both deserve major increases in salary and/or promotions. We enjoyed the "man-made" beach but were disappointed that the pool was closed during 1/2 of our stay. We did not have an all-inclusive package but thought the prices were reasonable, comparatively speaking. We would recommend this hotel and would certainly consider revisiting.

"Quite literally the best hotel I have ever stayed "
This is a beautiful hotel on the site of a old Plantation with secure access and truly the best views on the hole of Curacao.
The staff are the most pleasant and friendliest people you ever met, although that is also true of everybody else on the island of Curacao.
The hotel rooms are large and spacious with high ceilings, comfortable beds, great balconies and nice views.

This was my second visit to this resort. Property is lovely and the entertainment team is fantastic, as usual. The service received from the front desk, club lounge, bars and restaurant staff was great - thanks to Shoman, Marvienne, Nathalie, Stephany and Verona. Verona is the epitome of professionalism and I highly recommend that she be placed in customer services, her warmth and hospitality made a world of difference during both of my visits. She makes everyone feel welcome and her communication with guests was exceptional, her talent belongs on the front guest or in the concierge team. Marvienne was also outstanding, she should be a supervisor/manager.
On the down side, my room assignment was disappointing. After waiting a half day for check-in, I was given a ground floor room with a view of a fish shack, gully and stagnant water, no beautiful sea/ocean view in sight. A walk outside to the terrace and it smelled like fish, with the odour of the nearby eatery wafting into the room. This was quickly rectified by the superb front desk staff, who intervened to locate a proper ocean view suite on the second floor, overlooking the enclosed bay, beach and pool. Mary from Housekeeping was very helpful and efficient.
The worst service came from Louisa Thomas, one of the front desk managers. She seemed unconcerned, indifferent and uninterested in guests' wellbeing and comfort. Louisa could learn a learn a lot from the rest of the team and tone down on the attitude and angst.
