The resort is located 30 min from the airport, 10 min from Willemstad and next to the beach. Rooms are excellent, clean and a lot of space. Personnel is very helpful. Swimming pools are amazing and clean. We had a great time at Kontiki Beach resort!

This place is like nowhere else I have stayed. The rooms and the grounds are romantic and private. It has the most beautiful grounds of any hotel I have ever stayed at. However, the noise level is insane Wednesday through Saturday. If you are a deep sleeper or a night owl it isn't a big deal. If not, expect to...

The grounds of the Kontiki are beautiful. Very tropical and nicely done to provide privacy. Very nice how the pools meander throughout the facility giving solitude and scenery. Rooms are spacious and comfortable; lower floor rooms have direct access to the pool while upper rooms have a great view and vaulted ceilings. It's a short walk to the beach which...

Rooms and grounds were perfect! Pools we're pretty but it would be nice to have a fresh water pool too, especially with children. None of the rooms are very close to beach. Have to walk through restaurant area to get to beach which is very clubby.

The Hotel has beautiful gardens (you feel like you are in the jungle) with very nice pools. The room is spacious and has all the amenities you need. Location is super direct access to the beach and just a few minutes walk to the boulevard with shops and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Our family vacation was great at the Kontiki Resort in Curaçao. The resort is convenient and adjacent to a number of restaurants, beach tiki bars, shops and nightclubs which is great since we didn't rent a car. We had 3 rooms and always felt like we had the place to ourselves, although the resort was completely booked. Sitting on the...

The resort is very nice and zen, staff is very friendly but the service needs improvement. Not sure if it is this particular place or the whole island, but the staff are forgetful. You order something and you have to call and remind them at least 3 times before you can get it.

Lush and attractive grounds make this an attractive resort. Nice large rooms, well appointed. Restaurant overpriced, service issues, and food just ordinary. Good beach area and adequate chaises and seating areas.
