My favorite beach. The smallest, but best for snorkeling. Nobody was there. Sunset near our hotel

Would not return to this property

The power went out early on 8/17 and was not restored until late in the evening (with a generator that should have been implemented prior to dark). Instead of the property placing us into another room as we requested, we were told to wait with no air conditioning or lights. After discussing with the staff how inappropriately the situation was handled, we were given vouchers for breakfast. In addition, the sister property where the beach is located (approximately 45 minutes away) was very rocky and not worth visiting. The shuttle bus driver was almost 45 minutes late and our beach time was not extended because of his tardiness.

Outstanding package value!!!

Quaint restored Dutch Village feel...upgraded us to large suite opulently furnished...great Willamstad in town location...walk two blocks to swinging bridge and Punda shops and restaurants...Great slave museum in the village itself...staff could not have been any better, especially Aaron at front desk and Daryll for anything else...we spent most of our time touring the dozens of small beaches all over the island in a very reasonable rental...this is our second trip to Curacao with the Kura Hulanda property and staff being the magnet that drew us back...great pool with waterfall was undergoing maintenance...we enjoyed it on first stay...

Great choice for those wanting more than beaches o

We chose this hotel as we did not plan to spend all of our time on the beach and wanted to have some human interaction with the locals and get some local flavor. I believe that we made the perfect choice. The hotel is a very well conceived reconstruction of an old city neighborhood right in the down-town area. All the rooms are unique and do not give the impression of your average modern hotel where the architect's brief foresees all rooms being without surprises or differences. In the Kura Hulanda, you cannot possibly mistake being in Curaçao. While on a guided tour of the island, we had the chance to see many other resort hotels and all had the same non-descript appearance, where the guest could easily imagine themselves to be somewhere else. Since we decided against an all-inclusive package, we were also very appreciative of the fact that there dozens of top-notch restaurants and casinos within short walking distance. A last benefit is that the Kura Hulanda has a daily 45 minute shuttle service to their sister resort located on the beach. You can therefore readily enjoy the beauty of an exclusive isolated beach for the day before returning to the city for the evening. The pools at the Willemstad hotel are great for relaxation but not for swimming.

Living History on Curacao

This is a hotel unlike any other, on a Caribbean island with a very unique personality of its own. Comprised of beautifully restored Dutch Colonial buildings surrounding a mansion, the hotel offers all of the usual amenities: two swimming pools (comfortable but not large), several restaurants as well as a highly individual Museum of Slavery which is informative and totally appropriate to its location. (The Museum was built surrounding a 'Kura Hulanda' or Dutch Courtyard where slave auctions were once conducted.) A stay here is a step back into the history of Curacao. While this hotel doesn't offer direct beach access it does provide a shuttle service for its guests to nearby Blue Bay Beach, where there are opportunities to swim, snorkel and dine. While the Kura Hulanda may not fulfill all of the expectations of a five star hotel, it is definitely worthy of a vist.

What's to Love

The Sonesta Kura Hulanda Hotel & Spa is perfect for a beach vacation; it's an oasis in the city with a world-class spa and 20 minutes from the beach.
 

What We'd Change

The beach is a 20-minute ride, but this place has so much in such a great setting, chances are you won't even miss the sand.
 

Why You Should Go

This hotel feels like a Dutch village surrounded by tranquil luxury. The spa is divine, and the waterfall-fed Eco Pond is perfect for romance.

Hotel Description

Sonesta Kura Hulanda Hotel & Spa: Experience Caribbean Excellence

Unwind at the Sonesta Kura Hulanda Hotel & Spa, a boutique resort that combines the luxury of a spa with the history of a restored Dutch Colonial village. Located on the Otrobanda side of Willemstad and recently featured in ABC's "The Bachelorette" television show, the hotel provides the ultimate in tranquil opulence. Wander along cobblestone pathways among restored 17th- and 18th-century architecture. Relish the quiet of a traffic-free getaway amidst charming lanes and garden courtyards.

Wash away your worries at the hotel's two pools, each tucked within a garden courtyard. Experience a two-level Eco Pond grotto pool, waterfall-fed and lined by natural rock formations. More traditional in style, the Bolivar Pool also features a children's pool and comfy teak lounge chairs. Sit back and relax while the kids enjoy a play area with swings, a slide and a trampoline. Need a beach fix? A 20-minute ride gets you to Blue Bay Beach, where you can unwind in complimentary lounge chairs by the surf.

There's no shortage of exceptional dining options at the Sonesta Kura Hulanda. From an indoor or outdoor breakfast at Astrolabe Observatory to Indian and Asian cuisine at Jaipur, a wealth of choices is right outside your door. And when you're thirsty, head over to Jacob's Bar in the village's central square for cocktails and tapas.

A stay at this luxury hotel isn't complete without a trip to the Santai Spa, internationally and locally known as a destination in and of itself. Marble-lined locker rooms and showers greet you as you begin your spa experience, and you can enjoy signature services both indoors and out. Try the Turkish Foam Massage, it relieves tense muscles and leaves your skin supple and soft.

End and begin your day in the comfort of a meticulously designed guest rooms; each one is furnished with hand-carved furniture, antiques and original art.
