first off. I give this place 3 stars. Service all round was slow and poor. Norma at the main bar was the best. Always smiling and remembered my drinks. Employees at the buffet and grill were nice, some would forget what drink you wanted and would have to remind them that you ordered a drink. Waited an hour at the grill to get a burger meanwhile people ordering to go were getting there food within 10 minutes. The maids were horrible. Took 3 days to get my room done and that was me complaining that it hasn’t been done. If you’re in need of towels(they’re very cheap with giving towels) in the 2000 building, on each floor at the exit of every staircase is the towel storage so I just opened the door and took what I needed. Food was really poor and bland at the buffet for dinner, would recommend going to the grill because the food was actually pretty good. Da mario’s wasn’t the best either and the hibachi was so boring it was the worst I’ve been too. The food was good but if you’re there for a show don’t bother. Only 1 guy actually made it fun but the others were so disinterested. However The beach was beautiful, water crystal clear but some areas have rocks so just walk a little further down so you don’t step on them. Free shuttle to Willemstad, which is a lovely town. Michelle at the front is sneaky so beware, she promised a special 25th anniversary banner plus champagne in our room TWICE. didn’t get anything. The free 200$ credit is a booklet of 10$,20$ and 40$ off for spa and tours. Not 200$ straight. Casino is run down and the slots are way outdated. I’d say 20/30 years old with locals in there as well but they don’t bother. They have beach volleyball, soccer and bocce but they just put out the equipment and let you use it. They have scheduled times but they’re their from the morning till evening for you to just go and play. They don’t really push the activities. Beautiful island but a shame the resort wasn’t up to standard. Only place with A/C is da Mario’s, casino and the shop(which is totally over priced 80$ for goggles and snorkel). 3 minute walk (resort says 10 but if you’re from New York it’s 3)to mambo beach which has plenty of shops that are much cheaper so don’t waste your money in the shop. Rusty elevators, dirty floors and walls I just wouldn’t stay here again. This place is 3 stars at most.
Overall, it was a great stay and this was our first trip to Curacao and immediately fell in love with the island upon arrival. When booking our trip, we were not too sure where to stay, so we read a lot of reviews on Trip Advisor and did some research about places, and stumbled upon Sunscape. Felt that the price was reasonable for being an all-inclusive and offered the perfect amenities for our trip. However, upon arriving, my wife and I were a little underwhelmed at the property as a whole. The beach/views/water were AMAZINGLY beautiful and our room was great, but the property as a whole was dated and did not offer the "WOW" experience that we had hoped.
We ate at all 3 of the restaurants on the property and they were all delicious.. once you finally got a table. Just seems that there was a lack of structure in running the restaurants. There was never a hostess and you had to stand around and hope someone would come take your name down. The best food and most attentive staff was at Oceana. They did a great job of making us feel welcomed and ensured that we had everything we needed during our dining experience with them.
Drinks. We have stayed at numerous all-inclusive places and we understand that you may not get the high shelf drink items; however, their liquor selections were not good and it took an upwards of 30 minutes to get your drink at times (again, due to lack of structure). Understand that they have to accommodate for large crowds and constant turn around for travelers, but I would have hoped for the price that we paid, there would have been a little more variety in both beer and liquor selections. Also, the wine. Do yourself a favor and just do not drink it.
We enjoyed our stay here, but there is not anything that would bring us back to stay at this specific location on the island.
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.
