Beautiful Accommodations

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Everything, even the iguanas!
Cons: I thought the lunch prices were expensive, but the breakfast was reasonable.
Location: We enjoyed the Harbor Club, a short walk away, and Willemstad is only 15 minutes away. Also, the tour drivers will gladly pick you up at the hotel.
The Marriott is open to the ocean breeze and beautifully landscaped. We were a little concerned about a virus carried by mosquitoes that is spreading over all of the islands, but the Marriott sprayed at night while we were sleeping, so mosquitoes were not a problem. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the grounds beautiful, the rooms comfortable and clean, and the architecture/landscaping unbeatable. The food was pricey, but we did receive a $50 daily credit, which helped. We enjoyed the walk down the beach to adjacent hotels/restaurants, also. The drinks were outstanding, and there is usually a daily special. I highly recommend this hotel and would love to go again! Also, the beach is sandy, which is not always the case in Curacao. I especially enjoyed the dinner on the beach one night during our stay, and the entertainment on weekend nights. There is a casino available for those who are interested in gambling, and a free shuttle to town that leaves at 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Comfortable Beach Resort but service lacking

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: It was a standard beach resort. A couple of staff members require praise for their cheerful disposition and stand out from the rest.
Cons: Quality of service, improvement in attitude, attention to customers and timeliness, improved job knowledge.
Location: Nice location and close to town; but taxi is main mode of public transportation for lunches and dinners if you don't rent a car. Fares do add up.
We had mixed feelings about our stay at the Curacao Marriott. The reception was courteous and friendly upon arrival; our room, an upgrade was spacious. Some of the staff were helpful but others bore an expression like they did not want to be there---indifference barely begins to describe it. Service at the Portofino was definitely below par (and getting a drink at the Beach bar, Sea Breeze (?) was definitely not a breeze!) whereas the prices for items were on the high sidemore than $10 per drink if mixed drink); also a 15% service charge is tagged on everything. At times, items in the menu were not available and staff encouraged the buffet rather than a la carte; some of the waiters and waitresses we had at dinner were poorly informed on the menu and could not answer questions; one night it took us more than an hour to get our meal (for three people). We were frustrated and did complain to the restaurant manager and gave some suggestions for improving attitude and service quality. The following day, we were directed to a taxi ride for dinner out in town by a staff member at the front desk and got charged a time and a half posted in the lobby for that ride; when I complained to the reception about it the next morning (to a different staff member), they contacted the driver who came and returned part of the charge that day with an apology and an explanation he was not thinking straight. Anyway, I for one will probably go to a different resort the next time.

Awesome

Posted Dec 22, 2014
Everything from the hotel, to the staff and distance to the airport was great! Hotel is located right on the beach and also has a small area closed in for peaceful swimming in case you have children. Hotel is kid friendly and as a first-time traveler with kids, it made everything that much more enjoyable. My family and I would definitely come back.

decepcionante

Posted Dec 20, 2014
Pros: atendimento da recepção muito bom, a lojinha do hotel é boa e o pub junto ao lobby tem cardápio limitado, mas é bom.
Location: o caminho do aeroporto para o hotel, como por toda ilha é muito mal sinalizado, chegar ao entardecer foi meio complicado. não há atividades.
quarto escuro, ar condicionado barulhento, sujo, com formigas, colchão velho, saíamos às 9, 10 h do quarto, a camareira só passava lá pelas 18h para dar uma "esticada" no lençol e retirar o lixo. salao do cafe da manhã cheio de moscas - evitamos comer tudo q estava exposto, além de frutas insossas. academia razoavel com 3 elipticos, 4 esteiras, 2 bicicletas, 1 aparelho tipo "crossover" e 2 bancos + halteres. bar da piscina lento, pela primeira vez vi um bar da piscina em q os funcionarios nao servem na piscina (pode ser politica do hotel, mas é estranho), poucos guarda-sóis.

Excellent hotel, aménagement piscine mer exception

Posted Dec 17, 2014
Cons: La nourriture qui est vraiment pas a la hauteur de l'hôtel.
Excellent hotel et séjour très agréable,chambre très confortable, spacieuse avec un très bon lit et oreillers de duvet, le seul hic, c'est que la nourriture ne soit pas aussi excellente que le service et la gentillesse du personnel.

Not bad

Posted Dec 7, 2014
Overall our stay at this resort was pretty good. Not much to complain about about this Marriott. My boyfriend and I escaped the snow & rain in NYC to come here for a few days in Dec. Spent a lot of time at the resort - lounging by the pool, the beach, the swim up bar and ate at Sea Breeze and Portofino. We were pretty lucky with the weather - cloudy at times but mostly sunny. Checking in, the front desk was great & helpful. The agent who checked us in forgot some papers to hand us at check in so I guess sent someone to go into our room while we were gone and leave it on our desk. But overall the front desk agents were very helpful making us dinner reservations, calling us cabs and answering any of questions. Housekeeping was so-so. The room was very clean during initial check in however our daily service did not include changing sheets and pillowcases. Also never stayed at a hotel that did not include complimentary water bottles in the room? How else would I make the coffee given to us in the room? Regarding the food and restaurants - Sea breeze was great, good food, good drinks ( a little weak but tasted good), but a bit pricey - Portofino- honestly i would not bother, way too pricey and the food was mediocre at best. I highly recommend going into town (Willemstad) to eat - food is a hundred times better and also worth your money. The resort has free shuttles going into to town twice a day - VERY useful because the cabs otherwise are way overpried.
