Our room was pretty basic, but the view was outstanding. We ate breakfast on our balcony watching the bananaquits in the palm tree while looking down at the pool and out into the endless sea. Housekeeping did a nice job, and I can't say enough about the staff. The office staff (especially Gabriel) helped us out on more than one...

I wasn't sure what to think pulling into the resort. You can not park close to the hotel and have to walk a good ways in. However, your walk takes you past the sea lion and dolphin enclosures - and I was smitten. Being able to stay so close (closer than your parked car) to the aquarium was a joy...

We traded our Cancun timeshare to come to Curacao and were not disappointed. The resort is small (30) units, but is big on service, views, atmosphere, and quality. Our unit was beyond excellent.

We stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort through a time share trade-in and had a wonderful one-week stay. We've spent time on other Caribbean islands but this was our first time in Curacao.
