The Best Hotels In Curacao
By: Fiona Tapp Contributor Travel, Forbes.com
Sister island to Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao’s idyllic Dutch Caribbean shores attract many different types of visitors. From large groups on family vacations looking for a convenient beachside location and the little extra amenities that make it a bit easier for travelers with kids to solo or more adventurous travelers interested in independently exploring the island.
Whether you choose to stay at a guesthouse or private rental or splash out on a more luxurious all-inclusive hotel, Curacao has plenty of accommodation options to welcome you year-round.
Here are some of the best hotels in Curacao:
Best For Families
The Sunscape Curacao Resort Spa & Casino
The Sunscape Curacao Resort Spa & Casino is a great choice for families with its large recently renovated rooms, some with very convenient kitchen facilities. Children are welcome to attend the Explorer Kids Club which offers fun activities and events every day of your stay. There are also four swimming pools and a section of beach with a seawall, creating a calm oasis to safely snorkel, play and swim. Be sure to enjoy every all-inclusive little extra like coffee at the cafe and ice cream available near the main pool in the afternoon. And if you want to explore the island, a daily complimentary shuttle bus will take you into Willemstad and then back to the hotel again.
Best For Romance
Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort
For those looking for a secluded and intimate retreat, the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort delivers on the romance factor. The property set on 2,000 acres of private shoreline is the perfect spot to reconnect with your someone special and just relax. It also makes an excellent choice for a honeymoon or babymoon vacation. And if you are an active couple, there are more than enough activities on offer to keep you both busy, such as golf, diving, and kayaking.
