We booked six nights at the San Marco hotel, because of its centered place at Willemstad. Boy were we wrong. People at the desk were slow and didn't speak English very good. Room was little and very outdated (definitely not newly renovated as they claim!), bed was terrible!!! We rolled towards each other at night, because of the worn down...

The San Marco hotel is on a top location downtown has a good price range according tot the value they deliver. The hotel feels a little bit cold and there was no click with it. I don't mind because I just want to stay there for one night. But if you are a traveler and traveling alone this is not...

If Inselair left you hanging at the airport, and the only option for a night of sleep is the San Marco, go for it. For any other reason, avoid this place. It is a cross over between Faulty Towers and the creepy hotel in Barton Fink. The bread at breakfast tasted like paper, the waitress... Oh, there wasn't. But I...

The room was good enough to spend a few days and the bed was comfortable. We did not get a good view from the window but the top floors looked like they have a view. The wifi connection was weak and the shower pressure was low.

The convenient location of the hotel is a plus as it is in the center of Willemstad. The price of the hotel was alright and is good if you are looking for a place to rest your head after exploring all that Curacao has to offer. However, the internet connection was slow and sometimes non-existent. I had better wifi from...

This place rates among the worst I've ever stayed in. The pictures are not realistic in the least. Floors in the room were filthy. Bathroom was no better. Mold on the ceiling and so much rust on the shower head that the water just dribbled out.

The hotel was comfortable and located in the tourist center of Willemstad. It was also easy to access taxis that took us to other parts of the island. Overall, it was a very good experience. There were a couple of downsides, however. Some parts of the room (such as the hot water handle in the shower) needed minor maintenance. Also,...

Good location. .close to stores and pubs. Be careful at night...desert streets and homeless. Park your car in the corner of this hotel...after 06pm to 08am is free. Iguana Cafe is amazing....happy hour every day....double drinks.

The hotel over all is nice, little things they have to fix like the bathroom doors but over all i liked it. It is in a good location in the center of everything. Staff is friendly the price is good, the lift is tiny but it does the job. We had breakfast included and it was standard food everyday which...
