I just returned from another absolutely amazing vacation at the Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort in Curacao, a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature's beauty. Here's my experience: Beauty: Santa Barbara's grounds were meticulously maintained (there are even signs posted along walking paths with interesting plant information). The resort is on the beautiful Caribbean Sea with water so...

Amazing resort, maybe the best on the island and I have tried many. The biggest plus is the beach that is just amazing, crystal clear and various shades of blue. The sand is snowhite. Breakfast is also very good and the breakfast staff is so great! loved them all. The resort is to far from everything for me and also...

***WARNING LONG REVIEW!*** Every year my husband and I take turns planning our anniversary getaways, so I take much care in choosing places that will appeal to both our personalities.

We had a very good time at the resort. We enjoyed the "grand" reception area as well as being greeted with chilled drinks. The resort has that wow feel starting with maticulately kept grounds with beautiful trees and flowers and amazingly beautiful paths to walk around. It wasn't over crowded and most of the time it wasn't an issue to...

From the moment we arrived and were handed a welcome cocktail, we were in love with this hotel. Everyone was wonderful, not just the staff. Even strangers said hello to each other in passing, which was nice. We weren't impressed with the wi-fi in the room, but that was the only concern and a small one at that. Hanging out...

To be short, this is a very good resort. Nice rooms with excellent bathrooms which supplied quality amenities and had a good amount of towels. The hotel is nicely located between a golfcourse and a small but fine beach. There are two pools and a waterplayground for kids. We did not took the all-inclusive but only the breakfast which was...

From photos, publicity, and a distance, the Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort looks immaculate and pristine. Up close there are some rather large flaws which colour the entire experience. Accommodation prices are far too high in these writers' opinions for the quality of accommodation and especially given that occupancy appeared to us to be quite low. That the resort...
