Best Relaxing Vacation Getaway

The service at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort was top of the line. The staff went above and beyond to met our needs 24 hours a day. They also had a great birthday setup for me on arrival to my room. The room was very clean and was cleaned everyday there after. The food at the restaurants was beyond our expectations. If you want great service and a places for rest and relaxation this is the place for you. It's extremely secluded the perfect getaway.

RELAXATION

Santa Barbara is beautiful resort. Very relaxing environment. Food is a little pricey. Service is great depending on who is your server. Some were very slow and not very responsive. Shereka was a server that we had and she was very attentive to our needs. She was always smiling and helpful and made our trip extra special. Maurice took us to get coconuts and we got to drink the coconut water. We really ejoyed that experience. Rolly makes the best drinks so go to Splash when he is there. So if you want to have fun and laugh make sure you request these people because they will make your trip awesome. We got to swim with the dolphins and that was best experience. So definitely try that. The room was very comfortable. I went with a friend but is family friendly too. I would return with my family.

Good Deal if you Catch it on a Deal

The resort was very nice and well appointed. They sometimes slack on service but they mean well. The restaurants are nice but charge a 16% service charge (not bad) which is the tip. If you do not get the all inclusive package, things can get a bit pricey. Breakfast is $23 USD per person and is ok. Its a good ol American spread with an omelet station. In room internet is $16 per night for up to 4 devices, $5 per night for one device. Free wifi on the grounds. There is no infinity pool or swim up bar but the grounds are very nice. This is not adults only. There are only 2 restaurants, a casual Italian pasta and pizza shop that also serves gelato that closes at 11. The store is very expensive. $5 for a bag of chips and the only bottle water they sell is San Pelligrino and Acqua Panna. The resort is about a 30 minute drive from Willemsted so renting a car is not a bad idea from the airport. Its an easy drive from town and driving is not threatening here. They also do rent cars from the hotel for about $50 per day and parking is free. Taxi to the city is $50 each way from the resort, so it makes more sense to rent a car if you want to get out and about. The resort is huge, it takes at least 5 minutes to drive out of it! I would stay here again. I came in early June, which is the off season and it was very quiet. Nobody was there! Very nice and friendly place, but rent a car and stock your own room with snacks!

Try Boca 19 resturant !!!! Delicious !

Resort is just to far from the local action , cultural stuff , and exciting things to do - resort is huge we were in room at one end and beach was at the other so specify you want to be close to beach when booking. Staff is excellent - so polite and helpful !! Nicest people really A few I would like to mention by name Rudolph the bell hop or bell man is great for recommending places to go etc - just a very nice and very helpful guy Jayme at the splash bar - great bartender makes great drinks he knew our names from the first day in passing and seemed like he knew everyone when we would stop back by throughout our stay - Another very good guy Aonther things is I would recommend going all inclusive for your stay here - stuff is very expensive at resort - ex. Bottles water 5 dollars We Enjoyed our stay overall - again can't mention staff enough - but place is to far away from stuff to enjoy - an island the way it should be spending time on beach etc not majority in rental Cars or cabs At one End of resort is a place to eat - you must try Boca 19 great resturant - best tomato soup ever - fish caught fresh daily - and get the mango mojoto

What's to Love

Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort offers a huge variety of activities and amenities on-site. But don't miss a chance to get out on the water for snorkeling and scuba diving.

 

What We'd Change

At more than 27 acres, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort can be tiring to navigate, but sometimes the staff will chauffeur you in a golf cart.

 

Why You Should Go

Old Quarry Golf Course is quickly becoming a top Caribbean course and is well worth the visit. From Atabei Spa to scuba lessons, there's something for everyone!

Hotel Description

Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort: All-In-One Fun

Are you ready for a luxurious getaway that offers uncompromised service, expansive views and luxurious amenities that'll make you feel like royalty? If so, the posh Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort is where you want to be! This upscale Curacao resort is set on 27 pristine acres and features a 1,500-ft beach that stretches between the Caribbean Sea and Spanish Water Bay. If you're looking for a great place to tee-off, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort lets golf enthusiasts swing the day away at the resort's 18-hole championship course designed by Pete Dye.

Of course, the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort has more than just great golf. At Atabei Spa, rejuvenate with a massage, facial, wrap or scrub in the chic treatment rooms, or schedule a session with your significant other in a couple's room. And to get the full benefit of Caribbean sunshine, you can opt to enjoy it outdoors.

In addition to golf and spa services, guests enjoy the added convenience of a marina right at the resort. Why not take a catamaran to Klien, the small nearby island known as "Little Curacao?" You can make arrangements for a scuba trip to Boca Tabla Sea Cave. To add to the fun, the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf has three pools and a private beach, where you can stretch out on a complimentary lounger to gaze out at the sparkling azure sea.

Family-friendly, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort features fun for the little ones, too! At Camp Arawak, kids ages 3-12 can learn and play with archaeological excavations, sea discovery expeditions and even nature hikes that bring them up close and personal with iguanas!

After a busy day of tropical activities, your family can sit down together for dinner at SHORE. This open-air restaurant serves up juicy steaks, as well as the fresh catch of the day. During the day, SWIM Bar & Restaurant serves casual, Latin-influenced fare and cocktails, poolside. End the day with a Caribbean-themed martini and a cigar at SHORE--the perfect accent to an exceptional place.
