We recently visited magical Curacao, over Christmas, and after numerous other visits to the island, we decided to opt for a different experience and to be located in a different area of the island, and we were extremely pleased with every aspect of our stay! We booked directly with the resort and communicated via Whatsapp with the office staff and the communication was great! We arrived late at night and the security guard had our key and info as far as various aspects of the unit that we were assigned to. It was on the 2nd floor, beachfront ( well worth it!! ) and contained two spacious bedrooms, each with balconies, along with two and one half baths, a complete and fully stocked kitchen, with anything needed to prepare meals if you so desired, and included a dishwasher, stove top, oven, microwave, and a full-sized refrigerator. There was also a washing machine, which really was wonderful with wet beach towels and clothing. No dryer, but a drying rack that was large and we would lay out our wet laundry and in the sun, it dried quickly in the sun on the balcony. We did not have housekeeping while there, so we did have to wash our towels, etc., which was no problem. They do have an option for it at an additional cost if wanted. There was a large den and dining area, along with a very nice large balcony with table and chairs, plus a sofa and chairs for relaxing! The beach is literally a matter of feet away from the property ( and directly below the balcony) and the snorkeling right there is incredible with very easy access into the water! The property is located on a peninsula so it is very private and there is a security gate with guards on duty 24/7 who screen people coming and going. The accommodations very spotlessly clean and the staff was wonderful! We never even used the pool, but it seemed nice. There were plenty of restaurants nearby, as well as stores for groceries and other supplies, and it is only a short distance to downtown. Wifi was also very good and free. For anyone looking for a wonderful place that provides total relaxation and to get away from the usual crowded resorts, I would highly recommend this property! We would definitely consider staying again on our next visit to the island!

This was my third time staying at Palapa so that alone should say a lot! I arrived after hours so everything I needed was left with the security guard and I met up with Yamillett later on during office hours to officially check in! She was absolutely wonderful and was eager to help you with any concerns you may have had! The unit I had was spotless and having stayed at the property before, it already felt like I was home!! The location is perfect with restaurants within walking distance as well as spot right next door to rent out jet skis and other boating trips! At night it is so peaceful and quiet, apart from the sounds of the waves of the ocean....doesn't get any better than that! I'[m already looking forward to returning for a 4th time.....I always say if it isn't broken, don't try to fix it! lol Thanks again to you Yamillett and your staff for making my time there so wonderful!!

We stayed in Palapa 21, which has a beautiful beachfront location. Steps from the door is the pool with gorgeous views of the bay. The condo is very well appointed, with two bedrooms, one with a king and the second with two double beds. Each bedroom has its own three piece bathroom. There is also a powder room off of the dining/living room. The kitchen has everything you will need, including a blender to make your island cocktails and a dishwasher to clean up after. There are folding chairs and a beach chair, as well as a cooler to pack for your beach days. If you have children, there are sand toys and two Kickboards. There are plenty of bath/beach towels, but no wash cloths, and only two hand towels for all three bathrooms, so I used a beach towel in the third. There are only two dish towels, and one dish cloth as well, but there is a washing machine and a drying rack so you can launder yourself during your stay. There are two waterfront restaurants/bars within a very short walk. The unit has A/C in both bedrooms and the main living area, but we used it in the master bedroom only, as we didn't need the second bedroom and we enjoyed opening the sliding glass doors completely while we were home, to enjoy the warm breeze and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. I highly recommend this unit.

We had a two bedroom unite, with a very well stocked kitchen. Two big bathroom and one powder room our view wasn’t great as we looked at the next building beside us. The beach was very rough and small we never used it. The swimming pool also small and when we checked in was not very clean. We never used it either. I felt very safe there and was close to two very good restaurants. Staying here you would need to rent a car to get to beaches.
I would gladly rent here again

Unit 21 first night okay, second we had roach visitor's coming out of the sofa and on the bedside lampshade. Fridge stopped working all of our food was ruined ($229 worth, Austin said she would refund, still waiting). Hair in shower, popcorn on floor (we didn't eat popcorn. Austin wrote a poor review regarding us on Airbnb because we complained about the roaches, the fridge, the hair and the popcorn. Phone time with my husband she said was 30 minutes for a turn by turn to get to the condo, not true, once she told us the name of the resort we went right to the condo. Also the pictures are very deceiving, the is a barge looking out of the patio door that you don't see in the pictures for Unit #21. I would not recommed this place. Austin was very rude to my husband, she would say one thing and not follow through. Also keep an eye on the electricity that you use!!!!

We liked the location very much. It's close to water, to Caracasbaai beach, scuba diving (Curious 2 Dive), and wind surfing/paddle boarding. The apartment itself was great as well, plenty of space, very clean and comfortable.

This resort is good for families. There are two good restaurants in walking distance. Our fridge and microwave did not work. Knock on the contact door for assistance, and no one came to help. No phone number to call at the premises, only the wifi information. Also, the resort is not close to downtown. I sent an email on Saturday and still have not heard from the resort contact.

This property is in a fantastic location for good food and water activities. It was clean, well appointed and had great staff and security.

We had an ocean front room that had beautiful sounds of the waves and nice breezes. Having A/C in all rooms along with a washing machine made everything special. They give you a reasonable allotment of utilities and we only went over it by only $2 per day average, even though we did laundry daily and ran the A/C all night in our bedroom. The swimming pool was on the small side, but had fabulous views. Our master bedroom Jacuzzi did not have water working and that should have been observed by the housekeeping before we arrived. We did ask about it and they offered to send a maintenance person to look/work on the problem, but we did not want any work done on it while we were there so we declined.

The security staff was always friendly, watchful and helpful. The office managers Yamillette and Raquel were always professional, helpful, friendly and cheerful. They also answered all advanced email questions promptly. Our first day on the Island, the electricity was down for the entire area and Yamillette apologized many times over it while we were checking in. It was nice that she showed so much sympathy for us even though it was not any problem that she created. She also made our check in process nice while showing us to our room.

Don’t miss out on two very fine restaurants nearby and within walking distances. “Pop’s Place” and “Meat Fish.”
