8/10 Very good

Many kind people on the property to greet me and help with any questions. I came at a very quiet time which (late June) which I appreciated—practically didn’t see any other people. The property could use some maintenance and extra cleaning in areas, and jacuzzi did not heat up. Great location to accessing downtown Willemstad. Overall cleanliness of the room was excellent. Access to the Ritz beach pool was a huge plus!

Nice property very quite and relaxing... I think in they need to stare that you're getting continental breakfast instead of saying breakfast included.. The pool is very clean and relaxing, staff are friendly and professional..

The hostel is very nice and it's good that you can use the facilities of the hotel, like the pool and the bar. There is security in the property 24/7 which made me feel very safe. The GM Fazl is a very approachable guy and made everything possible to make my stay very comfortable.

Like: friendly staff, clean, great location, interesting history of being a former ice cream factory. Not like: inconvenient shower facilities (no place to put clothes and undress or dress in shower area). Breakfast is overpriced.
