We chose to rent our villa in the Royal Cancun this year and spent our week at this lovely resort in Curacao. If you are looking for a small, but spectacular Caribbean resort on an island with amazing restaurants and beautiful views, not to mention colorful snorkeling, this is the place for you. The entire staff at the Royal Sea...

We stayed at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort through a time share trade-in and had a wonderful one-week stay. We've spent time on other Caribbean islands but this was our first time in Curacao. It is the largest and most developed island we've ever traveled to and had a nice downtown area that was great for shopping, eating, and site-seeing....

We traded into this resort through II. Our unit, a 1br with full kitchen, doesn't have the best available view, but still had a great view of the main pool and the Caribbean beyond.

Royal Resort is a resort you would want to visit if you want to relax but still have nightlife close to you and family friendly activities around you. From having the Sea Aquarium right by the hotel and also have MAMBO and Wet and Wild in walking distance. Great rooms and beautiful views.

We are a family of four and the suite was perfect for us. The resort provided us with a crib and a high chair for our baby at no extra cost. The fold out bed worked well for our older child. The kitchen was well equipped with all the things you may need for a short stay. Our room was...

The Sea Aquarium is a time sharing system that was not informed to us in check in. In the middle of our stay, we had to lose time to change rooms unnecessary.

The Royal Sea Resort is very quiet and relaxing. The pool and beach area were not crowded and had plenty of areas for either sun or shade. I appreciated that they did not allow personal music in the public areas so we could enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Our 2 bedroom second floor villa had a large wonderful terrace...
