We consider ourselves fortunate to have been to Curacao and to have stayed at the Marriott as it is the best choice of hotels. The grounds are beautiful and extremely clean. The service is outstanding. The food and drinks were good.
Make sure to rent a car even if it's just for a couple of days and drive around the island. We stopped at a local liquor store with our friends as we wanted to try a certain beer. The person working there started opening up beers and snacks which worked out well for us! We stood there and drank and ate and talked and when we left we were told there was no charge! We met all kinds of locals who came in and visited with us for awhile, including some teachers and other business people. It was really fun!During our stay we visited Fort Nassau, the seaquarium, went shopping, etc. There are many great places to eat - The Blues, Hook's Hut, Jaanchies, Bistro Le Clochard and the Wine Cellar. The Marriott does have some entertainment at night down by the beach bar. We really enjoyed sitting out on the patio at Bistro Le Clocahrd for drinks,as well. We enjoyed the charm of the Cas Abao beach in the West of Curacao,although the Marriott has a nice big beach.

We cannot wait to go back again!

Marriott has beach buffets sometimes, they are quite good and not expensive. The only meal we were disappointed with was in Portofino's in the Marriott.

The beach is very nice, it's a bit rocky immediately infront of the Marriott but if you turn right and walk to the end it is sandy.

Other beaches are Knip Beach and several others in the west end of the island. The concierge at the Marriott was very helpful in recommending local restaurants ie those not mentioned in guide books, can't remember the names anymore but they were located in Willemstad on the seafront.
