We enjoyed our stay, but i think your restaurant and bar area need to step it up compared to other resorts.

Ocean front/view rooms with kitchens. 2 great pools, one is gradual entry, hot tub and great beach area. Property is small which is perfect with kids. Other guests and staff were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. The restaurant attached to the resort is also very delicious. Mambo beach is also very close and an easy walk away.

I need to start with a couple of quick shout outs. Expedia! Thank you for offering VIP properties with great benefits like free room upgrade! Natalie! Thank you for taking the initiative to help us get that room upgrade! More on that later. Blanca! Thank you for showing us so much love and compassion, all the while, making sure we and other patrons at the onsite restaurant were well taken care of and felt welcome! On to the review. The resort is close enough to Willemstad for a quick visit but far enough away to feel, literally, like you are on your own private island with water completely surrounding the area with the resort and aquarium. There are one lane bridges connecting the resort to the main land. Convenient, short walk to a couple of restaurants and marina where several snorkel, scuba, and party boat tours appear to leave from. The resort makes it clear "they are not a hotel" and appear to have timeshares there. All that this really meant as far as we were concerned was no provided shampoo, body wash in shower was, and no room service. Other than that they seemed to be full service, had onsite security, and kept the property very well maintained. i booked a Jr Suite. I would not do that again. Pay a little more or hope to get the Expedia, VIP FREE room upgrade. The Jr Suite was small, not well lit, and had a tiny balcony. The 1 Bedroom Suite, fabulous and very spacious! Snorkeling was great! Would recommend!
