Just stayed here one night. It is different, clearly an individual hotel rather than some chain. So if you do not want to spend tons of money and can handle a laid back atmosphere, I can recommend this place. Pros: * very attentive staff * nice big and very clean rooms * good bathroom * good a/c * conveniently located...

I settled on the Wave since I wanted to be able to walk around the main downtown of Willemstad. Upon arriving at the hotel, I started to have second thoughts about staying here since it shared the property with a really run-down hotel called the Pelikaan. I started to uncomfortably remember my cab driver's warning about not wandering around the...

We tried to book this hotel online but did not receive any response. Since it was Christmas we assumed they were full and booked another hotel. Then we saw the charges on our credit card (double the amount we had even requested) from Wave Hotel. When we spoke to the manager they tried to say it was our fault and...

We stayed in a large new (or renewed) room with a little balcony facing the hotel reception and parking lot. Bed was comfortable and A/C was very nice. The breakfast is available in four different combo options and is served in a very simple cafeteria across the reception. Wi-fi didn't work the first day of our stay, but the others...

I visited Willemstad in late December 2012, and wanted to stay with a locally owned hotel close to Anna Bay and the historic part of town (Otrabunda). The Wave Hotel apparently is new because few locals I encountered knew where it was located. Once I found it, it was indeed quite close to the Anna Bay waterfront but was definitely...

Nice and clean. Good AC. Nice tv and comfortable bed. Good distance to the maincenter, just a couple of hundred meters to the famous moving bridge. Nice staff, though a little confused from time to time.
