Reviewed 30 November 2017

My wife and I stayed for three weeks in this hotel in November, the location was terrific. Hotel is part of a complex which includes the Rif Fort. In the fort there are shops and several restaurants. We ate at several of the restaurants and all were good to very good. From the hotel you can walk through the fort and out to the a square where you can find more restaurants and the Queen Emma Bridge which is an experience itself. The bridge is a mere 5 min walk from the hotel.
One of our favorite features of this hotel was the man made beach which is an infinity pool. It's about 200 feet long, very warm and calm as there is a seawall. Next to it there is a freshwater infinity pool. Mostly every midday we would return to the pool to cool off. Curacao is warm and humid! There is bar service at the beach, its is a bit pricey, Mojito $11 US.
Another nice feature of the hotel;if your a coffee drinker,is there is a Starbucks on the second floor. To access the beach you walk pass it, a bit strange walking out to the beach via the second floor. There is also another Starbucks across the street from the hotel. There is a coffee maker in the room and the coffee supplied is quite good.
Our room was an Oceanside balcony room, the balcony made our stay! It was a fair size with two chairs and a small drink table. In the evenings we sat and had a drink listed to the waves, and watch ships come and go. (Cruise Ship port is very near to hotel).
Service at the hotel was good, the "Navigators" were terrific, helped us with Car Rental and provided advise as to where to go and what to see.
We can't comment on the dining in the hotel as we never ate there.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: would recommend a balcony and if at all possible on the fourth floor.

Wonderful hotel in a great location! Bar staff (Girainey, Shuzensly,Nick, Monique and Luis) are amazing! They are friendly, professional and carry the hotel brand. If Marriott loses then, this hotel will suffer! Restaurant pretty good although they had some coffee issues (pot broken, had to import from second floor) first couple days. Glad I get to go back soon......they are my home away from home.

We are still here ! Can’t wait to come back!Me and my friend came to Curasao for the first time.To tell the truth, we were amazed from the first moment. Great selection of meals, friendly stuff, location - right in downtown. Lots of activities around, like museums, island tours, snorkeling. Great casino, very clean. Interior design is modern and stylish. Bed and pillows very comfy, room is very neat and clean. Free Wi-Fi.Lots of shops, local crafts. The best vacation ever! I highly recommend try massage and facial, body scrub and feet massage right on the beach. There are two estheticians: Sara and Ann Maria, they are doing miracles with your face and body. Every morning we go to breakfast and Roberto( Nautilus Restaurant) is greeting us by our names! Cute!
Highly recommend this resort to everyone.

We (myself and two girlfriends) had the pleasure of staying at the Renaissance Curacao Hotel for the last nine days. Upon arrival to the hotel, we were greeted by our exceptionally friendly Bellman, Arlone, whose friendly smile and kind gestures, continued to welcomed us day in and day out. Making our check-in process not only smooth, but easy and quick was Kimberly. She educated us with information about the island, while also providing us with a map of must do attractions. Our room was perfect; everything you’ve needed in a hotel room- from cleanliness and aroma, to Wi-Fi and luxurious linens.

Luckily we rented a car, which allowed us to explore the island, from tip to tip, based on the recommendations we received from the Renaissance staff. Cheers to Nick and Giraniney, our engaging bartenders from the Blue Bar who never failed to welcome us back to the hotel from our day of adventuring. They were always so sincere in inquiring about our daily undertakings. Their engaging conversation always help to bring our fun filled days to relaxing end. Kudos to Piet (Pete) who never failed to make us laugh with the wonderment of his flare and his kind personality. A special thank you to Gilberto the bar manager, who went above and beyond to ensure we were never left needing for anything… including a wine key to open our own bottles of wine. Finally, but most certainly not in the least, to Elisabeth, Ruth, “GG” and Shuzensly, thank you for always welcoming us with your beautiful smiles and for your true generosity and curiosity.

Everyone at the Renaissance contributed to providing for us an unforgettable vacation in Curacao.

With love,
Brooke, Michelle and Tanja

Walking distance to town, shops and a fort. We took the all inclusive but also took a tour and did some snorkeling. Awesome trip.

We ate most meals in the hotel's restaurant, The Nautilus, when good food and desserts were tempting. Dinner service from Piet made the evening fun and entertaining. I will send him a pin from home. He wears a vest full of them. Thanks, Piet and other staff.

My wife and I travelled to Curacao and chose the Renaissance hotel due to it’s location close to restaurants and shopping. The most interesting thing about the hotel is the friendliness of the staff. Their concierge (navigator) service by Shekina and Riangelo was absolutely amazing. They even presented us with a wooden hand painted personal sign and a book of copies of paintings by local artists. The hotel was spotless and everyone went out of their way to make our holiday very enjoyable. The sand pool was something I had never seen before and it is worth your while to stay there just to see what can be accomplished. Sheila, the lady who books tours in their business centre came looking for us throughout the hotel to tell us she had managed to put together an island tour. I don’t know anyone else who would have done that.
