Curacao is our favorable island.After stay in Sunscape resort spa & casino this time we chose ALL INCLUSIVE Santa Barbara beach & golf resort. As a former Hyatt Regency hotel you cant have any complains about location or building class. It is perfect .Beautiful sand beach with every time clear and warm water. Thousand colorful fishes in water surrounding your lags. IT IS PARADISE for children and parents, If only not a hotel management !!! If you book ALL INCLUSIVE package, like we did, your vacation trip become a hell !!! In restaurants, bar, beach kiosk - everywhere you have to sigh a charge bill. WHY ? - allegedly for intern purpose. Nowhere in Caribbean we do have experienced such hassle. More over as ALL INCLUSIVE package we got a bill at the end for almost 500$ USD, with wrong address on it. At reception, agent Quiomy, and next day Janice promised to cancel wrong charges, but nothing happen until now. We complained yesterday online,from Canada, no response from management. We hope that our issue will get fixed, because we want come back to resort again. We holy recommend, still, visit Santa Barbara resort, especial family with children.

Be prepared: This hotel is remote, farther away from any of the attractions. The security entrance is at least 4km from the hotel. You will need to rent a car. We seemed to have arrived during a slow period, as occupancy was somewhat very slow and barren. I would be surprised if they were even 30% occupied, and there was a corporate event that came in during this time frame. Overall, the bed/rooms are average and comfortable, a little firmer than we're accustomed to but still comfortable. The staff were pleasant. The food at Shore and Medi were disappointing! I do not understand how other reviews rate the food as "fantastic" or "very good". It wasn't awful, but by American standards, I would be certain it would rate as mediocre at best. Breakfast at Medi was uneventful and severely overpriced for what you get at a standard buffet. Dinner at Shore was extremely disappointing. Ordered duck breast and I am fairly certain it was defrosted in the microwave making it extremely tough to eat. We sent it back. The evening special was mahi-mahi and it was overcooked, making the fish too dry. The small beach is located on the north end of the resort and is somewhat sheltered in a cove and sectioned off from the boat thoroughfare by a pier. The sand is clean and water clear, but there is no beach vibe. It is so sheltered that the only waves coming in were from the boats passing by to the open waters. Water is calm and would be enjoyable for smaller kids and without headache to the parents of undertows and high waves. There are sections in the water (closer along the length of the pier) that is probably waist or chest deep/high but overall, shallow. The resort's beach chaise were awfully uncomfortable - it is wicker with no cushions, so laying on them was barely tolerable. Beach towels are a bit worn but available. Wait staff and service on the beach is limited and drinks were overpriced and weak at best. This is a resort I would not revisit.

Had another great experience at the SBR. They now offer free high-speed wifi all over the resort, which is a plus. Room service was very attentive. The staff at Shore Restaurant treated us very good and the food tastes great.

We had a nice relaxing stay at the resort. Nice beach, friendly staff, excellent rooms. The pool was neat and we enjoyed the beach very much. Breakfast is very nice and good selection of food. Dinner was however not so perfect, alas the 4 stars.
