Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Overall a good upscale resort and nice facilities. Although the all inclusive plan is crazy expensive ($150 per person per day), there are limited food options in the resort. The resort is also far away from the main areas so going out to eat is not an option unless you have a car or want to pay $40 each way for a taxi. On the other hand, the service, well, typical laid back to almost non-existent. You have to beg your servers or look for them or fetch them to get some attention. They want to be a 5 start place but the service is more like a 2 star hotel.

Review:   Fantastic. Gorgeous. Nice people. Family friendly. The beach is one half coral/rocky/no seating, and the other half public/lounge chairs/man made/sandy. Both are beautiful. It's peaceful even when it's crowded.

Review:   The 4 star plus resort. Santa Barbara is a spot anyone looking to visit Curacao may stay. We drove through other resort areas and the beaches do not compare nor does the quite atmosphere. The facilities are good, service is top-notch, and the beach is phenomenal. They have several restaurants. Thank you to the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort staff for making our stay in Curacao wonderful. The beach is so safe to swim and snorkel and the water so warm. Choose our breakfast very carefully as it was expensive but lots of choice and if you like to eat a lot... It would be worth it. Pool is good. It's a pet friendly resort.

Review:   Disappointing. Beautiful views, lovely estate. But the poolside bar was understaffed, the golf course restaurant was understaffed, the check out process was understaffed. The property is an hour drive from the airport which is inconvenient as well. The icing on the cake was the added service charge, hospitality gratuity, the added porterage gratuity (which we did not use) hotel tax which added 70-80 dollars a day! Zero consent was given and we did not have time to review the bill before departing for our flight. I would not recommend this resort.

Review:   I arrived unprepared. Any smoker who travels often knows to bring cigarettes with you on vacation. I forgot to pack them. The resort happened to be out of cigarettes. This was not boding well. I went to the front desk with an ill temper and spoke with Mr. Angelo. He spoke with me calmly and arranged for an employee, Rudolph, to drive off resort to purchase me cigarettes. Amazing. No one made a big deal about it, they just were ready to assist. 30 minutes later they were delivered to my room. Wonderful, wonderful service!
