Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino Review

The four gabled buildings of this downtown resort are painted in colors that seem to mirror those of Punda across the harbor and fit in perfectly with the historic surroundings. The resort complex is right in downtown Willemstad in the historic Rif Fort. There are numerous high-end shops within the complex, a multitude of eating places, and distractions galore, including the large Carnaval Casino. Rooms are large and bright and feature floor-to-ceiling windows—many rooms have great views of the ocean and the harbor. Lots of hotels now feature infinity pools, but the Renaissance has gone one better with a second-floor infinity pool complete with beach. This realistic white-sand beach (with palm trees and a beach bar) slopes into a saltwater pool that blends visually with the real ocean behind it.

    Exquisite hotel, awesome location

    I went to Curacao in June 2012 and stayed at this hotel. Though a bit far from the airport, it's location is superb. Great views, great atmosphere and right in the middle of everything. Highly recommended. It is within walking distance of the local markets, tourist shops, attractions and all of the tour buses and services pick up from the hotel. The grounds were flooded with iguanas though which is the national animal for the island so you can't escape them if you go outdoor around shrubs, trees etc. They even had amazing restaurants close by and a movie theatre. The only negative was the food absolute not tasty at all. Either too salty or just badly seasoned. This is the story of the whole island though, tasty food is a rarety. Enjoy the hotel and I highly recommend this wonderland.
