Help--Marriott or Hilton?

Jump to last reply

My husband, daughter (7) and I are headed to Curacao in a month, and can't wait--we were there in August 2005, but now return as certified divers, and are excited to explore all Curacao has to offer.

On our last visit, we spent a day at Playa Kalki and the newly opened Kura Hulanda Lodge, and vowed we'd stay there if we ever returned--however, travelling with a 7 year old, especially when we'll want to spend a few days diving, requires a certain level of amenities for kids that I don't think the Lodge has.

Therefore, I've narrowed it down to two--the Hilton or the Marriott. The cost differential between the two is minimal, so I now I just need advice: which has larger standard rooms (I have elite status with Hilton, so the possibility of an upgrade is there)? Are the executive level rooms at the Hilton larger than standard rooms? And probably most important--which has a better kids club? Do the activities keep the kids happy and engaged, or is it really more babysitting? Were those of you who used either kids club satisfied with the level of supervision, and were your kids happy?

A million thanks!
