This resort was just what we're looking for. Beach access, attentive staff, not overcrowded, reasonable amenities. We really enjoyed the location being a little outside of the town, but easy access to restaurants and town via the public transportation. We had execellent meals on the resort at both the Sunday Meat Market and the Friday Fish Market where you can...

don't even try to go before checking time. I travel around the world, always getting my room at least 1 hour before. We went to the beach, saw the cleaning ladies talking infront of the room (ours)instead of cleaning the room.. we had 2 room.

The resort is gorgeous... need to work on some minor tweaks for cleaning staff and bartending staff to be more responsive. The front desk staff is very helpful and willing. there's an interesting relationship with the Cabana Beach, which is not technically part of the resort, but they have cooperation agreement for the guests, like serving breakfast by the beach,...

We loved our stay at the Kontiki Beach Resort! The property is like a hidden gem compared to all other resorts in Curacao. Even though the resort was full, we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. Beach was great too - definitely suggest doing full service.

Wonderful location of this hotel. Nice rooms with great beds where we slept well most nights. (Except those evenings when there was a party on the beach) Friendly staff and good cleaning. Only the breakfast which was not of top quality.

Yes - you're right - this hotel is right on the beach, but bear with me..... Let's start with the positives. The Kontiki compound ( I think that is the best description) is lovely, with beautiful cabins surrounded by stunning tropical gardens and interspersed with natural-looking salt water pools which are great for cooling off. The rooms themselves are well...
