I visited the hotel with my wife in early June. The hotel is clean, with a nice garden, as well as the beach and the sea. Rooms are cleaned daily. There are a lot of animation programs during the day and also in the evening. If someone is looking for quieter accommodation, I can recommend Seagull rooms. The diet is good, although it is sometimes long waiting for service. There are good ice creams, but only from 12:30 to 15:30. The dispensing point is somewhat secret, it is a small window between the main dining room (Café World) and the Italian restaurant Da Mario. We visited the Ocean Fish Restaurant once (it was a disappointment), twice the Da Mario (I can recommend salmon and appetizer with Parma ham). We liked the best at the Grill bar on the beach. We were there three times and tried almost the whole menu and we all liked it a lot. Also, the service was more attentive. And the seaside atmosphere with the sunset view is unrepeatable. The big advantage is the possibility of a free trip to the capital city Willemstad. Certainly worth a visit. The hotel staff is very helpful.Unfortunately, some except native Spanish have only a limited knowledge of English.
The beach was beautiful very clean and well kept. The food was not good but not awful, my husband and I left the resort many times for a meal. The entertainment during the day/night was great and overall the staff was pretty friendly. Due to the quality of the food,
I wouldn’t stay here again We also stayed at the tower, there was music right outside our room at Club Mambo until 2 am most nights - very difficult to sleep.
The Sunscape Curacao has three pools, one with a swim-up bar and another entirely dedicated to family fun. The beach is great for swimming, and the adventurous can take advantage of complimentary windsurfers, kayaks, sailboats, paddleboats and snorkeling equipment. The daily schedule of events includes activities like sumo wrestling, bouncy boxing, body painting contests, beachside parties, afternoon tea, rock climbing, pool, meringue and reggae classes, and fashion shows. Kids will also love the flying trapeze and trampoline clinic.
Curacao is known for its scuba diving, and there is an aquatic playground made of old cars and equipment a short boat ride away. Breezes Curacao offers free basic instruction, with one shore dive per day. Additional shore dives, boat dives, night dives and certification courses are available for an extra charge.
Back on land there are lighted tennis courts for night play, bicycles, table tennis, and beach volleyball. The fitness center at the resort offers treadmills, an elliptical trainer, a stepper, a stationary bike, free weights, and a variety of machines. Or, pamper yourself at the spa with a massage, facial, body scrub or take advantage of the steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi.
Use of the resort's Kids Club and Teen Club are included with your stay and have supervised activities throughout the day. The program runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and again in the evening from 6:30 until 9 p.m. Activities include pool parties, sandcastle building, scavenger hunts, story time, finger painting, nature walks and arts and crafts.
Breezes also has the largest casino on the island, with 270 slot machines, black jack tables, poker tables, and roulette. There is also a disco, but it's off-limits to kids except for special parties hosted before regular operating hours.
There are three restaurants, two snack bars, and five bars.
Jimmy's Buffet is a casual restaurant for everyone and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snacks daily.
The Scotch Bonnet is open for lunch and snacks through 6 p.m., which include hotdogs, hamburgers, French fries, BBQ and ice cream by the beach. The Superkids Snackbar offers light snacks and refreshments for kids throughout the day, as well.
For a night out, Mom and Dad can enjoy their choice of the Munasan, a beautiful Japanese restaurant with gorgeous views. The restaurant is open only for dinner and requires reservations.
Pastafari, an Italian restaurant with a variety of pastas, dishes and wine, is another great dinner-only spot. Reservations are required, as are collared shirts for men.
