Reviewed 15 March 2013

Did an exchange with Interval International for a week in March 2013. My husband and I got the small unit they offer. It was adequate, a larger balcony would have been a lot nicer, but we were right on the ocean, which is pretty amazing especially after leaving Boston with 15 inches of snow. We did not feel compelled to...

We just got back from a beautiful vacation. The location of the Royal sea Aquarium resort is excellent. Beautiful ocean view on 1 side, pool in the middle and lagune and beach on the other side and all within a couple 100 meters! The restaurant was OK. We ate the first night and did not return. The real problems we...

After 8 years visiting, the Royal Sea Aquarium has not lost it's charm for us. The view from the balconies is "to die for", the villas well maintained, and the staff courteous and helpful. We love the private beach and spend most of our days there. Can't wait until next year!!

My husband and I just got back from Curacao and wanted to give our review of the resort and the island while it was still fresh in my mind! We got off the plane and were welcomed with a sign by a JUST DRIVE car rental rep. They were awesome! So easy to deal with. But remember when you return...

We spent one week here in December and had a wonderful time. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. Can't say enough about the quality of the staff. The one bedroom we had was quite large, very clean and had a spacious balcony overlooking the ocean. The two swimming pools were also very clean. The fact that there are...

Four of us stayed in a 2-bedroom condo for a week. We overlooked the Sea Aquarium and the sea, so we were able to watch the animals playing at night. The balcony was very large so we could eat all our meals outside, and still had room for lounge chairs too. Inside, the condo is also very large. The furniture...

This is a beautiful resort that is out of the way (it is literally on its own island) but close to Curacao's main features and beaches. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If you prefer the feel of staying in an apartment/condo to a hotel room, this place is for you. The only negative was that the concierge service...

We stayed for 8 days in November.
