The stay was very nice and relax, Beautiful resort and high class. The food that was served was great and there were many options. The front desk staff was helpful. The pool and the view of our room was great. It is a long drive to get to the resort.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful. It's in a perfect location with gorgeous views of the channel and sea. The beach area is very clean and well maintained. The rooms are beautiful and spotless clean. In my opinion, the only area of improvement would be the dining. The are a few choices to select from. The service at the Shore left...

We have now been several times in the Santa Barbara hotel. It is promoted as a ***** hotel, which it certainly is not. It has all the means to be a five star hotel, but, as often in the Caribbean, after a certain time service and quality goes down. It is certainly not because of the staf in the restaurants....

We have been here several times and I am sorry to say that this time our holiday there was extremely disappointing. The staff does it s very best to make you comfortable but the food in Spash and Medi is not what you would expect of a 5 star hotel. The food in restaurant Shore is excellent, but it was...

everything is high end and plush. you want pampered, they have it. not a great place to try to be on a tight budget, but if you can handle 4 and 5 star costs, this is right up your alley and you wont have to pick and choose what to do. Medi is best for all dining, especially for morning...

Love the people on curacao. Everyone us cheerful and helpful. I would go back to curacao in a heArtbeat but would not recommend staying at Santa Barbara only because the food is terrible. We are not told meals are buffet except one night we had a coupon to their streak house restaurant. Believe me, no one was happy. One night...

The Hotel is modern and the rooms are very nice. What makes this resort is the friendly staff. Jaymy at Splash was accommodating, helpful, and wanted to make sure everyone had a great time. I regretfully forget the name of the bartender at night at the Medi bar, but he too was phenomenal. Missy does great work on the beach...

Great facilities, but a remote location. Beach is separate from the open ocean. Very pricey to eat there unless you are on the meal plan. Go here if you want all inclusive. Dont if you want to explore the island and want to eat out.

The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort exceeded our expectations by far. We were fortunate enough to have read reviews by other guests before coming to this property, and wanted to give back to others that are thinking of staying here (something we don't usually take the time to do). This property is absolutely beautiful. The staff for the most...

“We stayed in room 1316 which had an amazing view of the beach and ocean. For an even better view try and request room 1318 which had two balconies and even better views (not sure if there is a king bed in there which wouldn't work for a family of 4 anyway).”
