Vacation To Relax

We arrived at The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort on April 7, 2018 & stayed for one week. The resort is extremely clean and beautiful! The rooms were large & also, very clean! The food was fabulous too! There is a restaurant beside the resort called 19 it was awesome! The only down side to this place it is far from town so you would want to rent a car because, taxi are very high. The car rental place are NOT great people as we rented a car on Sunday to go into town only, to pay $100.00 for a car rental to find out the town was closed on Sundays. The could have told us this, and they would not refund us any money or give us a discount. The customer service at the resort could be improved as we called room service and front desk several times with no answer!!! The restaurants are a little high in price. They always seemed to be out talking. We also felt safe at resort & in town. Overall it was good.

Beautiful but remote

Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to stay with everything you need but 30 minutes by car to Willemstad. A car rental is a must and there is one at the resort. Perfect for kids with a protected swim area and day camp. Lots of good restaurant options, great breakfast, golf, dive shop, excursions that leave direct from there,etc. If you want action, go to the music clubs downtown, Mambo Beach, Avila, etc.

Thanksgiving in Curacao

First the bad, Great price at Cheap Caribbean, but right after fulfilling my payment ban! Log into American airlines... all remaining seats on plane are $30 to $50 each! Arrive at MIA Airport $5 for baggage porter, arrive at Curacao $20 for simcard your phone won't work without a local card unless you want to pay exorbitant prices. Arrive at rental car center Bam! $17 per day for car insurance (I recommend it its hectic driving there), Want to use your lap top? It's $45 for full access for 3 days at the Santa Maria Resort, tip for luggage carrier $5, have a BBQ dinner at hotel $94.00 for two! Start to see how the cheap is whittling away? Also our room was at the very end of the resort on the 3rd floor no elevators on except near the main desk so its either 3 flights of stairs every day or walk about 730 feet to the elevator. My wife has a bad knee so neither option was good, so I ended up carrying everything all the time. Gas in Curacao was about $1 per litter, or $4 per gallon, most of the attractions were far from the resort so we traveled over an hour each day. Other than that, wonderful climate, nice people, great food, awesome beaches and plenty of them. Lot's of of good food, places to snorkel and dive too. No issues with our reservation whatsoever. When we got to the hotel we were greeted with 2 Blue Curacao Drinks... what a treat! This was our 4th trip with Cheap Caribbean .com and plan to continue using them. Will just watch the details closer.

Worth it!

We only stayed for four nights but it was all worth it. In comparison to other Caribbean islands I've been to, this is by far the best one. Excellent weather, well manicured grounds, remotely located (a plus and a minus), and decent food. I will come back when I need the perfect getaway. Truly Paradise!

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.
