    If you're looking to relax ONLY then this is your place. Otherwise they do not offer anything at this resort. The ocean/beach is closed off and protected so you can't really swim out. They do not offer anything in terms of entertainment. Everything is extremely expensive (2 iced coffees $16USD, yoga $40USD). They offer a shuttle to/ from town once a day at a price. It is an extremely expensive place to stay. The food was mediocre (buffet dinner was pizza every night) and VERY EXPENSIVE. Seriously nothing to do.

    Nice resort

    First a note about the staff because they are all great. Especially Jayme, Tico and Lisa. They were extra special in the way they were with the customers. They are always smiling and giving you the best service one can get. Thank you all a lot. The resort is big but not to big. The gardens are very beautiful and are well kept. Also the rooms are very clean en spacious. The breakfast is very good and there is enough choice for everyone. This is the only buffet so if you want to eat during the rest of the day you can chose from a menu in the restaurants. If you want to stay in the resort all the time you do not need a car and if you want to rent one this is possible from inside the resort. According to my husband the golfcourse was amazing. He started at 7 am because of the temperature. A minus for this resort was that they have parties on the grounds of the resort for groups outside the resort. So it happend a couple of times that there was loud music till late. We booked this resort because it was far away from parties and music and we wanted the silence so this was a little disappointing. But overall this resort is great; beautiful beach en nice swimming pools.

    Perfect getaway

    We stayed a short week at the resort and it was absolutely perfect. The fact that there were not many people in the first week of December was a real benefit. Everything was quiet and relaxed. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The food at Shore was a real treat but also a lunch at Bella Italia was highly recommended. Also very easy to be able to rent a car at the resort. The buffet style breakfast is not my cup of tea, but there are many other good options. The pool is clean, the hotel room is clean. It was perfect and we were leaving in a satisfied and totally relaxed mood. Highly recommended is also a snorkel tour at Epsilon.

    We stayed here for 3 nights after visiting the neighbor island Bonaire for 4 nights. This was a great hotel separate from the main town. There are a few restaurants with different styles for any picky eater. Although the food was good, they were quite expensive for being really the only options without getting a taxi to town. The hotel room was very nice with a comfortable king bed. Our bathroom was separated by a curtain which was odd but not an issue for us. The property is beautiful and has a nice beach with plenty of lounge seating. Highly recommend if staying in Curaçao!
