Definately not worth the money!

Posted Aug 13, 2012
Pros: The quality of the food cooked by the kitchen staff was excellent whilst expensive. The location is lovely and very suitable for honeymooners/couples.
Cons: Portion sizes very small. Constant confusion amongst staff having to repeat everything twice and staff keep clarifying and then making mistakes.
Location: Very secluded location with man made beach. In the centre of a busy residential/commercial area though so that was a bit of a surprise to us.
The customer service in this hotel is very dissapointing particular reception staff, especially when you consider how much you are paying per night for accomodation only! Several things got confused by staff and mistakes occured; with wrong meals being ordered, a trip they booked was booked for 5 people instead of 2; leading to an embarrassing sitn when the tour operator was clearly dissapointed by the loss of revenue. I requested to see another villa whilst I was there incase we wanted to rebook different accom in the future - it took over 36 hours to come back to me and they only acted on this after I said I was dissapointed. Th shower in the 3 bedroom villa did not work fully ie the steam function, dissapointing as this was supposed to be an added luxury feature. We were told initially they were waiting on a part to replace the faulty part and then told that none of the steam functions in the showers in any of the villas worked so this explanation did not stack up and we could not understand why, if this was the case, it had not been sorted sooner. The outside light to our pool entrance did not work, only half the lights on the patio wooden decked floor worked and we got the overall impression that maintenence is not a priority. We also had the only pool closed for cleaning which was understandable but it was closed 4pm to 1.30pm the following day and the alternative pool was the hotel owners pool and it was dirty with stacked up furniture we were not allowed to use!

Peaceful oasis in Curacao

Posted Nov 22, 2011
Before going to Baoase, we stayed at the Kura Hulanda hotel for 2 nights in Willemstad due to availability at Baoase. It was a good experience to have the 2 aspects of the hotel stays. Baoase was a little oasis in the middle of a residential area. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. We got great advice on a restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We had to flag down the serving staff at times to get another item or bill, but that may be more of an 'island time' thinking than inattentiveness. The villas and grounds were always clean and appealing. There are plenty of places to lounge - your villa, the pool, the lagoon, the 3 sections of beach, the dining area or the bar. Our villa was nicely appointed with rich colors and clean lines, and comfortable furnishings. The grounds had a lot of plants and statues making it look like it's been there for decades. The villas were close together but didn't feel like you were on top of each other. And they're laid out so you're not looking into any other's living space. I'm not sure that there's any reason to select beach front versus beach view (we had a 3 bedroom ocean view), as the plantings and layout give you more of a 'view' than 'front' feeling anyway (none are directly on the sand). You will need a car or transportation arrangements to get around to sightsee on the island. I would HIGHLY recommend Baoase to anyone traveling to Curacao, even for a visit for lunch or dinner if you do not stay there.

Baoase, werkelijk fantastisch

Posted Dec 26, 2010
Eigenlijk zijn er geen woorden voor. Baoase is een ongelofelijk mooi resort. We zijn al op veel plekken en hotels geweest, maar dit is echt en hele mooie plek. Baoase is een belevenis. De villa’s zijn mooi, comfortabel en luxueus, ze zijn van alle gemakken voorzien. Zoals bijvoorbeeld een eigen zwembad voor de deur. De inrichting is erg smaakvol en de kamers ademen allemaal een eigen sfeer terwijl het toch allemaal als een geheel aanvoelt. Er is een mooie baai aangelegd waar je heerlijk kan vertoeven. Ieder plekje geeft een ander uitzicht over het resort of over de Caribische zee. Gezellig om aan de bar te zitten, er wordt een overheerlijke cocktail voor je gemaakt. ’s Avonds heerlijk dineren onder de sterren met de warme temperatuur van Curaçao en je voeten in het zand, romantischer is nauwelijks voor te stellen. Het eten is werkelijk heerlijk. Ook als je weg bent geweest en komt terug door de poort van Baoase, komt er een deken van rust over je heen. De vriendelijke en behulpzame mensen van Baoase maken het resort helemaal af en laten je het beleven. Het is echt uniek.

heerlijk oord om te relaxen of voor honeymooners

Posted Jun 10, 2010
Het luxe resort ligt buiten Willemstad maar de stad zelf is goed te bereiken per voet (overdag) of met een taxi. In de buurt heb je tevens een supermarkt als je een keer in de villa zelf zou willen koken. Het resort is een oase van rust in balinese stijl en het is echt een paradijs op aarde. We komen graag weer terug en het personeel doet echt alles om het de gasten naar de zin te maken. Bij zonsondergang genoten van een heerlijke massage met daarna wijn en sushi op een intiem gedeelte op het strand wat heel romantisch voor de gasten wordt ingericht. Als je op het strand ligt wordt er regelmatig gevraagd of alles naar wens is en kun je van alles bestellen. Het eten en de bbq die we hadden was ook fantastisch, de koks en bediendend personeel is heel flexibel en waar je trek in hebt wordt voor je gemaakt, men houdt niet vast aan een standaard kaart. ook het ontbijt was heerlijk, kortom veel keuze en alles supervers. We hebben een dag een jeep gehuurd bij hertz en het eiland verkent wat goed te doen is. Het heerlijke van de ligging is dat het rustig ligt, je komt er heerlijk tot rust en de drukte van de stad is op te zoeken. Doordat het resort kleinschalig is ervaar je geen drukte ook al zit het vol. Het hotel krijgt van ons een dikke 10! Ingrid & Martijn

An Awesome Resort

Posted May 12, 2010
The villa is so beautiful. The resort does not have a lot of rooms so it is very quiet. The views in all of the villas or suites are spectacular. The chef - Rick is awesome. From the minute we arrived we felt very special. The staff caters to every need. The outside shower in one of the bathrooms in the villa was wonderful. The decor of the entire resort is beautiful. This resort is beautiful and should be a 6 star!

Our 1st visit to Curacao

Posted Mar 24, 2010
The hotel is beautiful, quaint and very intimate. We found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating. The restaurant/bar service was courteous but a little slow for our taste. I think being from the US we are just more used to the service staff in the restaurant catering to our needs without being prompted or having to flag them down. The suites are luxuriously appointed but fairly small. I think some of the issues we experienced were more due to the newness of the hotel and the staff not yet being fully trained.

Can´t wait to go back

Posted Feb 24, 2010
My husband and I stayed at Baoase for 5 nights in february, 2010 in one of the three suites. The experience was amazing, we had all the beach and pools for us because the hotel is small so there were only three more couples there, The service was excellent, we had all the personnel taking care of us, the cheff coocked for us every day in the restaurant of the hotel, the room was a dream, the hotel in general lovely. I deffinitively would go back if I had the opportunity.
