This hotel was wonderful. If you want sand surf and relaxation this is it. Staff are great. If you are going for a few days buy the all inclusive package. It is well worth it. Splash bar is awesome and food is very good. Bartenders Ben and Jaymy are the best! Bar manager Keiser is so so friendly. Weather in. Curacao is very consistent. Go and enjoy!

Beautifully in a League all its own!!

We just returned from an amazing visit to one of our favorite Caribbean Islands, Curacao. We stayed at Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort. This is a family resort in a league all its own. Measured in miles and not in acres, beauty is all around. Accommodations which include lovely suites and also villas with private plunge pools, are very well appointed including spacious balconies with breathtaking views. No matter what direction you are looking at, the scenery is gorgeous. From the magnificent palms trees to the marina, Soothing Atabei Spa, incredible pool areas and the most magnificent beach, your days and nights are filled with relaxation and time to reconnect with yourself. This is a quiet, very upscale resort with many different areas for relaxation. The golf course is magnificent. Being the marina is right there, it is very inviting to book a tour of your liking; from fishing to sailing to specific excursions. The staff here is wonderful. From the very caring and dedicated GM Rob De Bekker to all those in his charge especially Front Desk Ellie and Evianne to Michael who greets you every morning with his most amazing omelettes. Sunsets are unbelievable and makes every dinner experience unforgettable. If upscale, relaxation, golf, sailing, Atabei Spa, scrumptious dining, gorgeous beach and pools are what you are looking for, treat yourself a gift of this magnificent resort.

Great resort!

My girlfriend and I spent a week at Santa Barbara in March 2019 and had a great time. The property is beautiful, the food was excellent and the service was exceptional - especially Jaymy. I would highly recommend the property for an excellent and relaxing experience.
