We visited Curaçao for a week and were very sad to have to leave. Curaçao is beautiful with so much to offer, and our stay at the Renaissance made it ten times better!
First of all, the location is great. It is right in the city of Willemstad for easy access to countless shops, restaurants and bars. It was only a short walk across the bridge to get there. We had a rental car to explore other parts of the island, and the hotel has free parking everyday which was a wonderful surprise!
Second, the infinity beach/pool are great and extremely relaxing. Yes, Curaçao does have amazing beaches around the island, but it was nice to have this as another option (we did want to drive to a beach everyday). This is a man-made beach, but this is a city/port area so that is an added bonus given the great location you are in.
Third, the staff was extremely pleasant, fun and helpful throughout the week. They provided countless recommendations and always followed up about what we did that day. They even took the time to teach me Papiamento (local Curaçao language)! Special shoutout to Girainey, Monique, Ruth, Luis, Angelique & Leo for all their hospitality and lessons! Would highly recommend meeting them for any of your needs during your stay.
I do not agree with many of the negative reviews about this hotel, but I cannot speak to their experiences. If you want to explore the local culture AND relax then I would choose Renaissance. Even local friends of Curaçao agreed with our decision to stay here!
