Trip Report Trip report: Curacao

Jump to last reply

My family and I had a fantastic time. We traveled with our fifteen year old, and her two best friends. We stayed at the Marriott, and I really don't have a bad thing to say. It was a lovely resort, very clean, very safe. We even got a room with an ocean view and didn't request one. I would be willing to answer any questions for anyone. Here are some highlights: snokeling off the resort was great, the girls went kayaking and had a great time. We went into Willemstad one morning to shop and that was nice. The girls got massages, and their hair braided, they enjoyed that immensely. Lots of relaxation, sun, the pool area is great, and right off the ocean which I found particularly wonderful because usually you have to choose between laying by the pool and laying on the beach, but we were able to have both the sound of the relaxing waves and the pool to dip in to cool off. The resort food was good. I would saying the poolside food was better than the average pool food. The on-site restaurant, Portofino, was delicious (Italian) food. Room service was good, especially their soups. They also have a delicatessen, "Voila", which had great sandwiches on bagettes or croissants, and excellent pizza. They also had hand dipped ice cream, and several other items to snack on.
Again, I would be happy to answer any specifics, all in all, we had a lovely time. Thanks again to all who responded to my earlier posts, thanks to you we had a terrific vacation. :) T.
And p.s. Anyone who saw my post about having 'notarized letters' giving permission to take the kids out of the country, we did need them. Thanks again.
