We stayed here last year and enjoyed it, so it was a no-brainer to book here again.Unfortunately, we were its last guests. Employees informed us that the owner decided to open the hotel only to long-term vacationers, such as a month or longer, and the hotel was effectively closed when we arrived. We were grateful that the owner honored our... More

We prearranged a late arrival and were met by the night watchman who escorted us to our apartment. Finding the hotel was a challenge as there are so few road signs in all of Curacao and we got lost twice before we found the hotel. There is very little parking but we were assured that it was safe to leave... More

Beautiful Boutique Hotel, very well located in Punda, Willemstad ... Staff-Owners really nice, very welcoming ... Only one issue: the taxi transfer I asked for, failed, and I almost lost my flight. Please pay attention to these issues. Other than that, I truly recommend this hotel

The rooms are clean and have everything you need. The hotel is also close to the city (5 minute walk), where you can shop, eat, drink and enjoy!

“Apartments are in the courtyard and are quiet and simply decorated; rooms in the mansion appear to have more atmosphere. The courtyard rooms have easy access to the beautiful pool and garden.”

“Room 4 is a large, airy, bright studio apartment. At this writing, it is about to be renovated. Be extremely careful walking down the steps to the attached veranda when the porcelain tiles are wet! The manager has told me that on my complaint they will be applying anti-skid strips. We were told by long term temporary residents that the large, beautiful suites at the front of the main building can be too hot. I'd ask if the air con has been modernized.”
