An Ideal and Peaceful Place for a Quiet or Active Vacation

Staying at Acoya for 4 nights was far better than I expected. To start, the location is very ideal, with Acoya being only a 20 minute drive from the airport, 15 minutes from Willemstad, and very close to the aquarium, freezone and other big attractions. Many tour agencies (including Irie Tours) picked us up at the hotel and brought us back. Acoya even has free daily shuttle services to and from Mambo Beach, Downtown Willemstad and the grocery, which all made getting around Curacao very easy and affordable. Acoya is also far from busy main roads, so the entire resort is always quiet and peaceful.
Regarding the hotel services, all were exceptional. The staff can speak fluent English, Papiamento, Dutch, Spanish, and some German. Late checkout can be easily requested and is usually allowed, the concierge desk remains open until 10PM, all the hotel staff are extremely helpful, courteous, professional and caring, and the housekeeping is always on time and thorough in cleaning the rooms. Tours can be easily booked and paid for, taxis can be called and documents for travel can be easily printed at the front desk
The restaurants and bar are right next to the lake and pool and serve delicious food and desserts. At the resort, I usually ordered pasta, burgers, fries, ice cream and brownies for dinner - All of which were delicious. The 4 nights I stayed at Acoya even had live musical and jazz performances. Breakfast is served buffet style and includes delicious muffins, toast, croissants, eggs, hashbrowns, fruits, and more. Hot chocolate and coffee are easily available. All of the food was delivered in good time as well. I was highly satisfied with all the food options available and they were all delicious.
At Acoya, I stayed in a 2-bedroom villa with a living room, tv, kitchen, fridge, and 2 bathrooms. The room was very spacious and was close to the lobby. It was very clean as well. You can even request to have bottled water delivered to the room. There's also an outdoor balcony area so you can put wet clothes that you wore to the beach outside.
Overall, staying at Acoya was a fantastic experience. It satisfies everything you need at a cheaper price than staying in downtown Willemstad. My favourite things about Acoya included the proximity to tourist sites, Willemstad, and the freezone, as well as how easy it was to get around. I also loved how quiet, laidback, and peaceful the resort felt, as well as the food, pool, and how tours can pick you up at the hotel. I'd highly recommend staying at Acoya regardless of the purpose of your trip. Doesn't matter if you are visiting for business, wanting to go out everyday, or just want to stay by the pool, Acoya perfectly accommodates all travel purposes and is perfect for all ages and families to stay at.

The experience was severely affected by private parties and loud music held at the resort. Customers like myself wanting peace and quite at night were unpleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and understanding. The property needs some minor maintenance, but it was ok.
