However service sometimes a bit sloppy (orders forgotten) and the general maintanance could use some more attention. Rooms spacious, but aain service sloppy with a non functioning ( and empty) minibar and llogical towel change. Terrace should be... More

We were only here on a day visit, but wow. Despite the unusual rain, we had a great time. So much to do. So much natural beauty. Such a thoughtful design to this resort. We loved it. This is one of the largest resorts (in total land size) I can recall visiting. Everything seems to have been done top notch.... More

The Santa Barbara really is the nicest hotel you can stay at in Curacao, albeit a bit removed from the rest of the island. The resort's expansive grounds have plenty to keep most anyone entertained for their whole stay. I would love to give it 5 stars, but the smoking, oh the smoking just kills the place. As there is...

On the plus side: - room was spotless and kept that way - every staff member I encountered was friendly and helpful; especially the front desk folks and the "doorman"; requests were dealt with promptly. - beds...

Their products smell great - everything has aloe in it, sourced from the island. By far my favorite part of the resort was Jaymy, who suggested I try their version of the Mudslide on my second day....a perfect... More
