very laid back and friendlyPosted Feb 7, 2015 on Hotels
We arrived in the late afternoon and were given a free upgrade to an apartment suite. The hotel was filled with mostly German tourists. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite was very comfortable and clean, but there was no maid or towel during our five day stay. The hotel is charming, painted in vibrant colors. The pool was spotless. The restaurant had very good local food reasonably priced, especially at breakfast. Many outsiders came for meals. Service was island style, one customer at a time. The hotel is not right on a beach, but several are a five minute walk. Were were there to snorkel, and the best beaches, also very sandy, were a 5-10 minute drive. Best were Santa Cruz, Lagun, Kleine Knip and Kenapa. We rented with Alamo/National at the airport for $37/day. The drive to Westpunt was about 40 minutes, and very scenic. We visiting the capital for shopping and sightseeing, as well as two nearby national parks and a local landhuis. We generally had breakfast and lunch at the hotel, and ate out most nights. We best liked Sol and Tres Pinotti nearby and De Bruyer Cafe in Williamsted.

Quaint quiet gem.Posted Jan 3, 2015 on Hotels
Quaint hotel, great staff and location for the area. Food was good at restaurant. Rooms were efficient and clean. Beds and pillows were hard but we managed. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

Convenient location at a fair pricePosted Mar 13, 2013 on Hotels
This is a good and more affordable alternative to the more expensive "water front" options, the location is excellent if you want to stay on the west end (which is highly recommended). The restaurant was a bit disappointing, the food was OK but they had no white wine when the special was grouper, and they said they couldn't make any cocktails. The swimming pool didn't look very inviting, but then, who needs a pool when you have a beautiful beach just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel? The kitchenette was very handy and we cooked most of our meals after we managed to find a mini market open. Friendly staff, overall a good experience that I would have no problem recommending for those who are not seeking extra comfort and amenities.

Unique Part of North Curacao Island.Posted Jan 31, 2013
Pros: The Hospitality and the Food
Cons: Poor Ventilation when AC is off.
Location: West Punt, Curacao
Rancho El Sobrino was a pleasant place to meet local people and watch the spectacular sunset from your western room window, see the wonderful views at West Punt Village from the restaurant overlooking a picture perfect bay below with fishing boats offering fresh fish for sale. In particular at Rancho El Sobrino was the excellent food and ambiance of an open air restaurant and balcony with a wide variety on the menu. The food was beautifully presented by the young chef, served with a smile by young waitresses who spoke several languages fluently. The reception staff and owner were especially impressive with their attentiveness and hospitality. The clean pool was a joy to youth with its water slide and cool water. It was a positive experience at an affordable price !

A good option for budget travellersPosted Jul 31, 2011
I chose Rancho El Sobrino based on price and the fact that there were limited kitchen facilities so I could self-cater. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the place had a lovely family feel about it. The place is a bit tacky and wouldn't suit a luxury traveller, but it was simple and clean and down-to-earth. There was a fridge, toaster, kettle and sink in my room, and a restaurant on site. However, there are no shops within walking distance, so if you are planning to self-cater you either need to have a car or go shopping beofre you leave Wilhelmstaat. There is a small swimming pool, but there is a beach within walking distance, so I didn't use it.

Curacao abseits genießenPosted Sep 5, 2016 on Hotels
Generell war es sehr fein. Aufgrund der Nebensaison waren wir fast alleine. Bis auf einige Kleinigkeiten im Großen und Ganzen ein schöner Aufenthalt.

Struttura tranquilla e graziosaPosted Aug 30, 2016
Ottima posizione, comoda alle spiagge, camera semplice ma comoda, letto ottimo, cucina essenziale ma sufficiente. Ho apprezzato che la struttura sia di proprietà di famiglia locale e sia a basso impatto ambientale

Tolle familiäre kleine Anlage für RuhesuchendePosted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Die Lage und Ausstattung (Deko, Einrichtung etc.) der Anlage, das freundliche Personal, die vielen Vögel im Garten und die Ruhe.
Cons: Nein. Das Rancho el Sobrino soll auf jeden Fall so bleiben, wie es ist!
Location: Die Anlage ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Vom Hotel aus können zahlreiche Strände erreicht werden. 2 Nationalparks in der unmittelbaren Umgebung.
Hatten ein schönes Studio mit komplett ausgestatteter Kochzeile (ein paar mehr Pfannen und Schüsseln für kochbegeisterte Gäste wäre schön) und einem Balkon mit Meerblick und andere Sitzmöglichkeit mit Blick auf den Pool. Zimmer geräumig und sehr sauber. Die Reinigung der Zimmer (1x/Woche) ist völlig ausreichend. Dies gilt auch für das Wechseln der Handtücher, da 2 Sets pro Person zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Die Anlage ist sehr schön gelegen und hübsch und geschmackvoll im karibischen Stil eingerichtet. Auch der kleine Pool ist zur Entspannung und Abkühlung nach einem langen sonnigen Tag bestens geeignet. Das Personal ist sehr sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das schöne Restaurant verfügt über eine abwechslungsreiche Küche, ist jedoch nicht ganz so günstig. Für Ruhesuchende und Naturliebhaber ist diese Anlage ein kleines Paradies. Wer Animation braucht, ist hier fehl am Platz. Ein Mietwagen ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen: dies gilt sowohl für den Besuch der umliegenden Strände als auch für die Versorgung mit Lebensmitteln (der nächste größere Supermarkt ist ca. 10 km entfernt). Für alle Tauchbegeisterte: Tauchschule gleich vor Ort
