The resort is located in a beautiful location, the property is kept immaculate, the staff could not have been nicer. I would return without a doubt!

Had a wonderful time at the Royal Sea Aquarium. The resort is beautiful, and very clean. Staff is wonderful and very accommodating. The absolutely only negative is the lack of shampoo/conditioner/soaps that are generally provided by resorts. Will go back again.

Amazing

We had a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and a beautiful view of the ocean and setting sun. The room was comfortable and provided all our needs The Restraurant had many selections and also gluten free choices. Being so near the Sea Aquarium was fantastic We learned about corals and sea animals The shows were entertaining but actually swimming with the dolphins was a memory we'll never forget The staff couldn't have been nicer

Excellent location. Directly on the water.

Pros: The appearance from the outside, is everything you expect to see on the inside. No disappointments.....
Cons: The parking. It was a bit inconvenient..
Location: Everything was ALWAYS just a few miles away. Even if you don't feel like driving. You can walk and shop, eat, party, relax on the beach.
Very relaxing and peaceful. The only noise you might hear, if your doors are open, is the ocean. The resort had some rules, and it was nice to see that everyone who stayed there, followed them. Every evening I would sit on the beach, and wait to see the sunset. It's the most amazing sight!!!! We wished we could have extended our vacation, but had to get back to reality😩. I would definitely take another trip to Curaçao, and stay at The Royal Sea Aquarium👍👌❤️😀
