Had the Lamborghini in a pita, not impressed. Ground lamb was overcooked, almost hard with fries for naf 22.50. 2 burger plates for friends who agreed that they weren't up to Willemstad or Fabiano's standards and 1 person couldn't get over being charged 50 cents extra for one small onion slice on the burger. The burger meat was thin and seemed previously frozen, with a processed cheese slice to boot.
Mojito was mainly ice, puzzle find the rum, 2 sips and that's about it for naf 11.50. Since all the food appears to be pre frozen or processed, we're very surprised at any good reviews. Bring a sandwich here and you'll love the beach.

As long as you are not too adventurous with what you order; i think you will be happy. A Burger for example is hard to screw up here and has been pretty consistent.

Playa Porto Mari is a comfortable beach. We enjoyed snorkeling along the long shoreline. The man-made reef structures allow for seeing a variety of fish.

After a great day on the beach, and great snorkeling, we went to the bar / restaurant. Service was friendly, but not very attentive. The drinks were fine, after the order right. My wife had grilled shrimp, which were ok. Not too filling, even for my light eater wife. I had the Red Snapper, which was a nice sized fish for one, but was cooked to death. The saddest part was the bar closed before sunset!

My wife and I have been to Curacao 5 times now and we always make sure we go this beach a couples of times during our two week stay. It's nice beach. They do charge for chairs and entrance fee , but it's well worth it. The best snorkeling is to the left looking out to the water. There's also a double reef straight out for divers. There's a good bar and restaurant onsite. Bathrooms, outdoor shower for a quick rinse off. You won't be disappointed spending the day here.
