I chose this hotel because you are right where all the action is, next to lively Mambo Beach and the Mambo Beach Blvd shopping/dining/entertainment area. Also you get free admission every day, and multiple times a day if you want, to the Sea Aquarium. The hotel staff treats you like family, always having smiling faces and eager to help you...

Quiet place, very clean and comfortable. Pretty views, amazing sunsets! Staff is more than helpful! Snorkeling right from the beach but we rented a car and visited many beautiful beaches and snorkelled them all! We traded through Interval to get this resort and got lucky to go there! Would love to return one day!

Good snorkeling off of the beach. Wish the beach was nice sand kind of rocky. Liked pool and hot tub. Front desk people very helpful. We had...

Is everything I like in a vacation; quiet, clean, accommodating and reasonable. Stayed 11/14 thru 11/24. Second trip to Curacao in 12 months but first stay at RSA. Our room was perfectly located; first floor, end unit, oceanfront and about 10 steps to the pool. Very clean and housekeeping perfect. Daily housekeeping made the bed and switched out towels and...

Small resort, they only have 30 rooms. It's a small island, off the island. Amazing views and very private. It feels like your sitting at the end of the world but you can always walk down the beach to a party!

We trade in a time share to get here. On its own private island next to the Aquarium. The staff is incredible, you get free daily entrance to the Aquarium. We saw three daily dolphin shows from our balcony every day. Decent restaurants and beaches and shopping close by. One of our best trips ever.

If you want a place to sleep, this your place to be. It's ok for family's and the kitchen is very handy if you want to prepare a meal, especially when you have young kids. The building is ok but old. The staff isn't very professional, but some of them do their best to be at your service. The parking...

We have been coming here for 9 visits over 14 years. Super clean, small, quiet resort. Their staff are courteous and knowledgeable. The small, private beach at the resort is excellent with palm tree shade and crystal clear water. Several restaurants within walking distance. Best of all is the dive shop (Ocean Encounters) just across the lagoon.

Just came back from a one week vacation staying here as an exchange. What a delight! The 1 bedroom suite we had was wonderfully appointed and the housekeeping staff took care of maintaining its cleanliness. The kitchen was well set, the bathroom being separate from the bedroom was great for those who wanted to wake up versus sleep in. We...
