From shops and historic walls from which to view the city, bay and bridge to night time entertainment, restaurants and places for the kids to be amused this certainly is worth an afternoon And or evening

It's a designer brands type outdoor mall with a few resturants, bars/cafes and souvenir shops. The fort itself gives nice views of the city and bay. There is also a multiplex there in case you want to catch a movie.

We have never been in a fort this beatifully done. Love how they keep the stone architecture while adding in modern flare. The shops are high end with lots to chose from. The cruise ships are closly docked to this place.

Area is very cool and beautiful place but built to serve the cruise ships that come here. Same shops you would see at most ports.

Super use of the old fort for shops and several restaurants. There are stairs and an elevator to the ramparts of the fort. Walk through to the cruise ship port or to the Renaissance Mall Free washrooms available also

A Typical tourist attraction servicing the cruise ships. The development is integrated in a part of the old fortress protecting the harbour entrance. Bit of a mediocre development.

The Riffort Village is a recent large scale development in Willemstad Otrobanda, nicely in style of the old city and with a very luxurious Renaissance hotel with articial beach and infinity pool. There is also extensive free covered parking. It is almost literally a tourist...More
