The pros: - so many waterslides, pools, splashpad areas, giant inflatable waterslide, bumper cars, carnival ride, playgrounds - if you have young children, they will NEVER be bored here. They will not whine that they are bored. That is worth the price! - rooms were cleaned daily - A/C/maintenance issues dealt with immediately - wristband room key (but big clunky safe key to hold onto haha) - huge room with separate bedroom and huge double size balcony - ice cold A/C in both rooms. We turned it off whenever we weren't in the room, but it cooled off almost immediately when we returned - fresh pool and room towels whenever you request - free shuttle service (Pirates Bay; Willemstad; Porto Marie; DaaiBoii) - also most places you can bring your own drinks/food so stock up at the resort and bring a cooler and your excursions are free or minimal fee for a sunbed - staff are friendly and always return a smile - food was fairly good tasting. Pizza, A la carte restaurant, and BBQ meals were the best. - lots of drink options, but mostly too much syrup and not enough alcohol - robot bar was so fun - tons of free sun beds at every pool (resort seemed mostly empty when we were there) - no getting up at 5am to reserve a bed The cons: - resort and pools often don't look super clean, in part due to all the lush tropical foliage, which is constantly dropping stuff in the pools, and the iguanas, which are awesome to see but love to poop right next to the pools. I never saw anyone cleaning the pools all week. The chemical levels seem good though (water clear, smelled clean, and gentle on skin) - the water pressure in the slides is humorously low - like if you are an adult you should expect to pull yourself down with your arms. Drop slide was not running all week (probably not enough pressure) - the slides/splashpad only run between approx 10am and 5pm. This is way too limited, especially given the limited buffet hours, the shuttle times, and the lack of any other entertainment - there is literally no waiter service anywhere at the resort, even the buffet - I've never been to a resort where you have to get all your own utensils, drinks during meals, water, coffee, anything. A bit inconvenient when you have a small child and can't easily leave them alone at the table. - food is exactly the same everyday at breakfast. Lunch and snack bar offer the same options everyday. A bit of variety at dinner. Minimal labelling so not great for vegetarians or any food allergies. Not a lot of choice for vegetarians but I never went hungry - buffet times are limited but there are snacks at other times (mostly breaded & deep fried) - no entertainment, games, activities that we saw - water heating for showers depends on the sun - only an issue when there is a lot of rain - which there was some days we were there. But its 1000 degrees out, I didn't mind a cooler shower - no ice machines anywhere and I felt like I was always begging for ice Would I go back? Maybe. The #1 thing I wish management would change is the lack of waiter service in the buffet. They have tons of staff working and clearing plates anyways, and a lot of the time they are just standing around waiting. It just made for a less relaxed vibe to have to keep taking turns getting up and getting ourselves stuff every meal. Two additional suggestions: the pools could be cleaner and most of the activities (inflatable slide, bumper cars, ride) seem to run during the early afternoon - so if you are gone on a shuttle you miss them by the time you get back - keep the activities & pools/slides open later! We are used to 4/5 star resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, but this was nothing like that. If you expect that, you will be disappointed and annoyed. If you go with the flow, enjoy the perks, and roll with the cons, you will have an amazing time at a very budget rate! …
We booked this because it was cheaper than getting just a hotel in the area. We were pleasantly surprised. The place is quite Dutch, which we enjoyed. The drinks were good, food was good. Although not a huge buffet, but everything tasted very good. Things do shut down fairly early so if you want food past 9, maybe bring some snacks as the pizza bar is not open past 9:00pm. Nice family resort. Rooms-very nice and clean. The apartments are beautiful and spacious. The slides were fun and great for kids. Bumper cars are fun as well! Some of the pools could use some work, and there are a few things that look a bit tired. Staff is very pleasant. Definitely hope to come back with the family one day. Over all- because we got a good deal it was perfect for us. If you are looking for a fun place with clean rooms and decent food with the kids, this is the place to go. Thanks Kunuku, hope to see you soon!…
We had a perfect stay at kunuku. For us the service in the restaurant was great for 2 persons with celiac disease. We will definatily return to kunuku for an other stay in the future. The Staff was very friendly
First time curaçao. But I love this resort. No high buildings but more a small village feeling. Nice staff, enough choice in food and drinks. Clean and peaceful. Best resort for families with kids at all ages.
Our first family trip to Curacao. Good services and really nice hotel rooms. The kids 18 months and almost 3y liked all pools and improved their swimmingskills. Some aspects at the resort needs improvement. We might visit Kunuku a second time ;)
Second time at Kunuku. Major difference Since 2018. Higher price, lower service and Quailty. New management has a huge challenge to improve quality, service and variety in food. Rooms should be cleaned more often and management must bring the nummer of staff in line With number of guests, Also in The weekend when to much Additional day tourists are On The resort.
A great resort in Curaçao. With seven swimmingpools and a lot slides. The food at the resort is very good. People are Nice and the Location is good. Perfect for families with kids but also great for couples and older people.
Nice, clean cared for resort. Our room was a spacious nice clean room. The food was delicious and hot, the choice of buffet was limited though, this could be more extensive. Animation in the evening could be more extensive. We also reported this to the manager (a new manager had just arrived). Very friendly and helpful staff, always ready to help if needed. We had a nice vacation at Kunuku Aqua Resort.
Very clean, beautiful resort. Friendly staff, good food and would definitely recommend with children Especially the pool and the fair every afternoon were really nice Also good food and delicious cocktails
There was good stuff and bad stuff, I will admit. The problem is that the good things were the convenient location and placing of the building, having a gym, a self-serve store with basic goods (tampons, chocolate, sunscreen) at prices that were quite economical. Having slides and rides on the premises (bumping cars and another one), but when it comes to services, it's a big no. (some employees try to do their best but are mainly locals who can speak more language) First of all, the front desk clerk(Dutch) just gave us the flyer with information about the hotel. No one showed us the way to our room or carried our luggage. Our room was on the 3th level and there was no elevator. I had to carry the luggage all the way. The TV channels had only Dutch channels, no kids' or movie channels. The hours for breakfast, lunch and dinner are quite limited. If you wish to nap or do some other activity at that time, sorry you just missed it. The doors will automatically close but some snacks will be available at the pool bars. I asked an all-inclusive guest for a burger that I saw someone else eating. They told me that it was only for guests eating. We had on 2 different occasions food that had gone bad(potato salad and sushi). It was so bad it stinked. There is no supervision at the waterslide. Adults and kids use the same slide and a grown man just slides and kicks my kid in the back. Employees chat on the phone and forget to stop the rides. And the most important reason not to go there is RACISM. I wanted to do zumba in the pool. When I went there, no other guest was paying attention to the instructor (one Dutch lady with her kid did try though). She kept talking to the Dutch or white guests, ignoring me. At the end, she wanted to take a picture and kept calling the other guest to take a picture. Dutch is spoken to invite the crowd in and some instructions are in English or are mentioned in English once in a blue moon. Besides me, I saw Spanish speaking for the whole week being ignored or received bad service.…
