We were here in 2014 but it’s still one of the best holidays ever. The resort is beautiful, has the most friendly and helpful staff, the food was great and everything is included. If I had to mention one ‘bad’ thing it would be that you definitely need a car if you were to leave the resort and go to more local areas. For 1 day we booked a trip and visited the Blue Curaçao factory, dolphin academy, and some public beaches, but the best beach was definitely the private beach at the resort itself. It is clean, quiet and you get the best service, so all you have to do is lay down and relax - which for me is what a holiday is all about.

Nice and clean beach. Good food. Nice music. They have to fix the freezer. The beer was not cold enough. Some waiters have to be teach better manners. A plus for lady @ the frontdesk and for Angelo. Bart tenders @ shore was very good. 😉

This is a beautiful resort very big and great food and amazing staff ! I can’t say enough about the staff. I was taken care of like a queen. I have some good issues and it was all looked after. I had my glum pancakes and bread available and anything I needed it was provided. All staff greets with a smile and with a warm welcome. Thank you to head Chef Chris who made sore my gluten free food was available. I have so many to thank ana mention. Johnathon who made me great pancakes and sweet Paulette at the omlette station always so happy and beautiful smile. Miss you !

Our first time to Curacao and we were really looking forward to the trip. Had booked Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort for 4 days through our airline. Check In time 4pm. When we arrived, we were advised that they needed to make a room change because the AC in the original room was not working, and it would be a few more minutes. We took this opportunity to grab a bite at Splash and tour the resort amenities. A short time later, we were advised the room was ready. Very nice gentleman escorted us to our room. When we first walked in, it seemed wonderful! Great Ocean view, beautiful wood trim, very large bathtub, nice large closet. Within minutes the smell of mold and mildew was prevalent, so much so that we had to open doors. The headboards of the two queen beds (wood frame, leather padding) were both torn. More disappointing than anything, the room was filthy. Seemed as though the surfaces, such as tables, dressers, counters had not been wiped down in a week. The floor was equally as bad. After just a few minutes our feet were black with dirt and sand. Even the sheets on the bed were gritty.The next morning, as we were leaving, we politely asked if the room could be cleaned thoroughly while we were gone. Upon returning, you could see wipe marks on the floor, however, it wasn't any better.The next day, we came back at 5pm and the room hadn't been serviced at all. They came at 6pm, while we were getting ready for dinner. When we returned to the room that evening, it appeared they had serviced the room, but in reality all they did was make it LOOK like it. Additionally, the safe in our room was a continual problem. Security came three times to address the issue and implied we forgot the code. No. Its hard to forget 0000. The pool is extremely small considering the number of guests. And each night after sunset there was a local dog, black lab, swimming in the pool as if he belonged there. We were not interested in swimming after seeing this. There is no Beach, its more of a sandy area, contained by the marina dock. We live on the east coast of US and have visited several beach resorts. We were expecting a real ocean beach. Overall, our biggest complaint is the lack of cleanliness, in the room, in the pool and even in the restaurants. Cleaning should be top priority in a resort like this. I will say that the golf course appeared very nice. We did not golf, but it seemed acceptable.
