Travelling to the Santa Barbara beach and golf resort for our 25th wedding anniversary in 1 weeks time. My wife said I should learn to dive for this trip so I booked my class and pool here in Canada and plan to do my checkout dives in curacao. I thought it was going to be great to have a dive...

My Husband and I booked this resort mainly from reading reviews here on trip advisor. Firstly it is a bit out of the way. From when you turn into the gates of the hotel grounds it is still another 5 mins or so in a car. It is a very impressive reception area all open plan. We were met with...

This was a BEAUTIFUL resort and Gold Course. We went for a family vacation (all adult children). There were families there with younger children - not something I would recommend if the child isn't well behaved and relatively quiet. We went during the first week of March (before March-breakers) and it was very quiet and peaceful. Loud children would be...

I traveled with 2 friends to this resort this past week. First of all, the positives: the resort property is very beautiful, very nice landscaping, and an overall relaxing atmosphere that will suit many types of travelers. The sheltered beach cove is wonderful for wading/swimming, and they have activities (we saw a stand-up paddleboarding lesson, for example). It is convenient...

Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort provided a fun and relaxing and sun-soaked time for our family vacation. A short drive from the airport and BAM - we found paradise. Our family had pretty much given up on all-inclusive resorts after being continually underwhelmed in Cuba and Mexico so we did have some hesitations about coming here but were happy...

I traveled with a friend, and this was our first trip to Curacao. This resort is also appropriate for honeymoon, babymoon, coupes, singles, family, young, and older. There is something for everyone.

Santa Barbara in Curaçao has indeed set the bar when it comes to creating a feel of nobility and royalty if only for a 10 day getaway. My wife and I chose Santa Barbara as the location to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The location of Santa Barbara on the island is very much isolated from the rest of the hotels...

My husband and I chose this resort because of its location - away from the main city and surrounded by greenery. We made the right choice. The hotel provided us with welcoming rooms and views. The resort was very clean - I even saw the leaves on the beach being raked to keep it pristine. The staff was very friendly...
