Nice resort to stay near Mambo Beach
Awesome view of the ocean, great staff, a good pool that is open until 9 pm, a short walk to Mambo Beach, and very comfortable rooms. the only improvement would be to change the king foam mattress for a true spring mattress that doesn't sink

Did not like the lady on the reception
Everything was perfect. Except the day we were leaving i asked for two hours for late check out. Time for check out is eleven , and our plane was in the afternoon. The lady in front desk was not nice al all. Different to two guys that were there the day we arrive. Very nice both

Returning soon for more time to explore!
This resort has everything you need to enjoy the sea. My room was kept clean and had a dehumidifier that helped control the dampness from being on the ocean. Short walk to Ocean Encounters Dive Center, Sea Aquarium, Substation Curacao, and Olas y Copas Restaurant (open air and ocean friendly casual). Nice beach for bathing and snorkeling along the sea wall off Mambo Beach. Choice of pools and hot tub, too! Service was prompt and always friendly staff.

2/10 Poor

Stayed 1 night and immediately moved to another property. Curaçao been having blackouts which we weren’t informed about by staff. The property does not have generators for rooms they only have for front office. We were without electricity and a/c and wifi and then told to keep balcony door closed even though that was our only air because it would ruin furniture. Front desk called and was very rude about it even though they are sitting in a/c and said it’s policy but the balcony door sign said keep closed when a/c is on and that we didn’t have. They also don’t tell you till arrival that it’s a time share so if owners show up you may have to switch rooms. She said that it says that on Expedia and definitely does not.Night 1 tv wasn’t working only has 6 channels they have an option to rent a roku for an extra fee but they don’t have enough rokus for entire property. Was told maid service comes only on Wednesday and Saturday which is fine to me because I really don’t like people coming into room during my stay but Thursday during the day all of my belongings were moved all around the room just thrown in piles on dressers when I had them all in order by day I was wearing them. Staff just didn’t seem to care about no electricity, and didn’t care to accommodate in any way not even bottled water also if you would of bought groceries for stay they would of been ruined. Should not be listed as vip hotel.

We were lucky to visit several places, and always noted we were happy we stayed where we did!! The condo-style accommodations were perfect for our family. We overlooked the dolphin swim area and we're treated to lots of dolphin play! The terrace is huge! The private beach was awesome - actually private and never crowded. Snorkeling was great to see a lot of fish and marine life! Everything I read about the property didn't helpfully describe how close a lot of things are. There is only one restaurant on property - Ola's - but it has a lot of options and was delicious. Lions dive resort was literally a 3 minute walk and lots of options and a 5 minute walk to Mambo Beach with all kinds of options. One night we drove toward Jan Thiel Beach and ate at Tabooshh which was fantastic. Jan Thiel beach is a 10-12 min drive; and the town is a 10-min drive (the driving is not for the weak; and I suggest reviewing street signs ahead of going!) do yourself a favor though and rent a car! While the driving was a little aggressive and roads twisty, it made getting around so much easier and we were able to see much of the beautiful island. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our 6 night stay in June. The rooms were nice and clean although everything could be upgraded ( which I believe they were in the process of when we were there but did not interfere with our relaxing) we had a small kitchenette. Microwave, small Friday and toaster. Enough to enjoy breakfast/lunches instead of going out. Carrefour was a great grocery store, about 18 minutes away. The hotel did supply a cooler and snorkel gear which was great when we visited the beaches. Only Kokomo did not allow outside drinks. The onsite beach is excellent enough to enjoy snoring right there! Easy 5 min walk to all the other resorts and restaurants. We're vegan and the onsite resort restaurant accommodated our requests very well. Overall would definitely recommend and return.
