Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort has all that and more to offer. It was our first time and hopefully not our last visiting Cura├žao. Our stay was tremendous, waking up to the birds singing, waves crashing and sun shining was like paradise. From check in to check out the staff were extremely helpful and always smiling. The beach, pools, lobby, rooms and restaurants were all so beautiful. We stayed in the Sea Traditions suites, the rooms were very clean and comfortable with great views. All of our waiters and waitresses took very good care of us, two in particular, Raldney from Shore and bartender Jaymy from Splash. They were both so friendly, with a great sense of humor and outstanding memory. I wish we could have stayed longer, it was hard to say goodbye and come back to reality aka: work and snow!! All in all I would definitely recommend Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort to anyone and everyone.

The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort ticked all the boxes for me: quiet location (there was only (loud) live music on Sunday and Wednesday evening, but it stopped before 9 PM), sandy beach where you can enter the water with bare feet (no watershoes needed) and a great sea view from my balcony. It's isolated but that's what I like. If you want to go to town, I heard it costs $40,- one-way. They have a shuttle service but I don't know how much it costs. It was clean. The weather was perfect too. There were a couple of things I didn't like but they were minor: - I didn't like the airconditioner. I had to call reception every day to have it switched off because when you open the balcony doors the system is reset automatically and I don't like sleeping with airconditioning. Sometimes I had to call them twice because after 30 minutes the airconditioner still hadn't been switched off. - The spa automatically adds a 15% tip and 6% VAT on top of the price they show you when you book an appointment, but I wasn't informed about it then. I didn't find out until I had the appointment when they made me sign a document that I agreed with this. I like to decide how much I want to tip myself and I'm not used to seeing prices that don't include VAT. - The Medi restaurant gives huge portions. I don't like not finishing my plate but it was too much every time. The food is quite expensive. I had all inclusive but you have to sign receipts every time you eat anyway. I recommend not having all inclusive. The portions are so big that you can eat breakfast and dinner and spend less money than what you pay when you pick the all inclusive option. - When I went out for a meal at Shore (great food!) the waitress asked me why I ate alone. When I said that I like to travel alone, she said, "Noooo! Why? It's sad." People who are single also like to go on holiday and I don't like it when people act like it's something to pity. Of all the people there, she was the only one who said anything about it so it's not too bad. In Mexico and Egypt I was asked several times by the people working at the hotel if I wanted them to be my boyfriend and that fortunately never happened here. Overall, great hotel and I would return here.

The Santa Barbara Resort is a spectacularly beautiful place, with large grounds and gardens, a nice (if artificially made) beach, and easy access to a marina with water sports activities. We stayed five nights and had a very nice time. But, man-o-man, it's quiet here. Only one nice restaurant, Shores. Highly recommended, though. Sit at the bar for the best service. One OK buffet restaurant, best used for the breakfast buffet, and one pool bar. Food at the pool bar was surprising good. The staff everywhere was awesome, and really contributed to the vacation experience. Our room, ground floor with garden/cactus view was nice, but not 1st class resort quality. More like a nice upscale brand hotel room. The resort is WAY out on the quiet end of the island, which I'm sure a lot of people like. There is a car rental desk on site, and renting a car and driving around is really easy. Driving tip: There is no grid system of any kind for roads here. To get anywhere you really need a navigator using a GPS map app telling you where to go. Overall, a really nice place. But, if it's resort action you crave, this is not your place.

really nice beach resort, very good service and perfect rooms. Good and friendly service at the pool and overall. Good and well serviced breakfast and a nice golfcourse near by. The only thing it would recommend is give quick free wifi all over the place and also in your room, now you have to pay for it.

The staff were all wonderful, from the front desk people, to the restaurant staff, to the bell boys, to housekeeping! Every one was nigh on cheerful to answer any questions we had, and to help us with any problems (of which there were very few, if any). The view from the resort is amazing, and the golf course views were even better! The private beach is a nice commodity, as you really feel at home with only you and your other Santa Barbara residents allowed to use the beachfront. I highly recommend the catamaran snorkeling adventure also, Ms. Anna Maria (sp?) was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable. The food at the resort is fantastic; ranging from a breakfast buffet that will knock your socks off, to the bar food from Splash, to the laid back attitude of Bella Italia, to the beautiful views and succulent tastes up at Shore. The room was also top notch, with a few available plug converters in our room, flat screen, lovely bathroom/shower, comfortable bed, soft sheets and pillows, very clean, and with an awesome view of the resort! I would highly recommend the spa also, they took very good care of us, and really worked to make the experience as pleasant and soothing as possible! Overall I would say our stay at the Santa Barbara was the best vacation experience we've ever had, bar none! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone traveling to this beautiful island, and would encourage everyone to try the Blue Curacao drinks offered upon arrival - they're deadly and delicious!
