We rented an ocean-front four bedroom villa with a pool for four friends. The house was as promised and a very convenient walk to the grocery store, and restaurants/shops.

Was a little disappointed in the beach area as it was actually a beach pool (think pool with sand) than a straight walk into turquoise water as you'd get elsewhere. With that said, we spent all of our time at our villa pool watching the ships sail by.

Taxis from this location to Willemstad are pricey so if you plan to go out and about more than once or twice, definitely rent a car.

We are only on our second night here and so far we are very happy with the location & accommodations. We spent our first 4 days in Curacao at an all inclusive resort and were ready for something a little quieter and more upscale. This place does NOT disappoint. We are staying in a three bedroom 2 bath condo with a gorgeous view. We are with 5 minutes walk to the grocery and several restaurants, most of which are right on the beach. And speaking of the beach...it's a series of small beach areas with plenty of chairs, restaurants, bars, and areas where you can walk into the water. We walked all the way down to the end, where there is a small restaurant and bar called Kokos. You can pay to use their loungers and they will bring drinks and food to you. We plan to walk back down tomorrow to try a different area of the beach.
The complex of Boca Gentile is very nice, clean and upscale. There is a security gate where everyone must check in, and we have seen security in the area of the beach as well. This is NOT a place to visit if you plan to have wild parties, but it's a great place to relax and grab a tan.

We rented a "Hilltop" apartment with our family of 4 (kids 20 and 18).
Very nice place, very roomy and clean, great kitchen, big fridge and freezer, good airco.
Porch is nice with a pool 5 steps away (shared with 12 apartments but always very quit).
Top floor would be ideal since you have a direct view at the sea. We were at ground floor but there we could enjoy the well maintained garden. Parking space near the house, security guards at the gate around the clock.

Room Tip: At he apartments try to rent a top floor location for a great view at the sea

Great appartement. Very nice terrace with a great view. The hostess is also very nice and very willing to help. We've had contact a couple of times and she responded almost immediately.
Supermarket is nearby and open every day.

Super villa, excellent facilities and everything you would want. Only criticism is that photos suggested access to the sea via steps but in reality the steps don't make it and it's too dangerous to just leap in. All in all a great place to stay.

Great stay in a beautiful villa (S13) with breathtaking views over the sea and a private pool. The house is tastefully decorated and outside and inside blend in really well. Would definitely recommend this place.

We rented a 3 bedroom villa in Boca Gentil. It was directly located at the ocean. With a infinity pool the sight from the deck is breathtaking.

You spend some more money, but the quality is for Curacao very good. You can stay in that house with 3 couples if necessary. It is close to Jan Thiel and Papagayo Beach. There is a supermarket around the corner and several restaurants.

Room Tip: When you can get a house near the ocean... it's so nice!
