The best of Curacao
vrede99, Willemstad, Curacao
Thu Oct 19 07:36:39 EDT 2017
Santa Barbara is the best Resort in Curacao. It has everything you dream of. A beautiful beach, golf courts, spa, good restaurants, cocktails are wonderful. But the best of all is the service! Nice people that attends you as kings and queens!

Remote luxury

Even for an island this location is remote, which is fine if you want to get away from the hussle and b. They do have to improve upon the internet service. It should be free in the room. I paid for it one day and paid extra to use the high speed and up to 3 items connection and it still only aloud 1 ipad

Fantastic Honeymoon

We couldn't be happier with our decision to stay at Santa Barbara. Although it is a little bit of a ride from Willemstad, it's worth the trip. We were shuttled from the airport with other honeymooning couples who decided to stay at the Sunscape, which I found to be an odd choice, as the Sunscape is close to downtown, in a row of other hotels, and even has a casino attached to it. If you're looking for a quieter getaway, away from the hustle and bustle, then Santa Barbara is the place to go. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. Raygene, Rolly, and Shereka took great care of us at Splash and we kept going back, not for the beer selection, but for their company. We made dinner reservations at Shore and were delighted by the view, right on the golf course and water. The service was friendly and the food was outstanding. Advice: Beware of the Gelato shop on the resort. Gelato is delicious and addicting. Bug Spray is a must. Mosquitoes down there tend to leave welts instead of bumps. I WILL stay here again if I ever return to Curacao.

Golf!

This golf course is gorgeous and very challenging! I drove my hubby thru all 18 holes and we both thoroughly enjoyed this course, albeit quite challenging and vastly spread out from the resort. You have astonishing views of the ocean, the bay and gorgeous mountainous terrain. We brought a pizza from the restaurant with us and it was delicious. The resort is also gorgeous and we spent another fabulous day at the pool here later on in the week. You're quite isolated on this property, so be sure you've got a car to explore the island and go into town for dinner. 5 stars here all the way...

Quick getaway with the family

Because of the holiday of 10-10 on the island. I’ve decided to surprise my kids. We’ve stayed for 2nights here. They’ve enjoyed the beach and the pool. Only concern is that there is not enough shade near the pool. Made it hard for me to enjoy as well without going into the pool/beach.
