The resort has 333 rooms and suites, all of which have a balcony, terrace, or patio. Room choices include king bed, two queens or a double bed. The two-bedroom suites sleep six and have bedroom suites have a king-sized bed in each room and a pullout sofa. These suites are ideal for families, as they have a living room with another pullout, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Gardenview Rooms have a king or two queen beds and offer views of the garden.
Oceanview Rooms has a king or two queen beds and a lounge chair, with a view of the ocean. (View could be a sliver, depending on locations.)
Oceanfront Rooms, of which there are only 32, feature views of the oceans with king or two queen beds.
Jr. Suite Oceanfront rooms also overlook the water with a king bed. There are only three of these suites.
Jr. Suites Oceanview provide some sort of ocean view with either one king or one queen bed and a two-seat sofa.
Two-Bedroom Suites feature a king bed and one pullout sofa in each of the two bedrooms. The living room also features a sleeper sofa, making this suite good for six people.
Sunscape Curaçao has nice beaches with clear, blue water right in front of the resort. There is excellent snorkeling (wide varieties of fish). There were plenty of beach chairs and cute huts for shade. The pools & pool decks were always kept nice and clean. Food was nice and flavorful at the restaurants. There was a wide variety of options for food at sunscape, which is nice for picky eaters. Sometimes food was relatively average at the buffets for breakfast and lunch, but other days it was good. The staff is all very friendly and likes to keep everyone engaged in activities. The night shows were average. I upgraded to an “ocean view deluxe” room, and did not have the best view of the ocean.. so I’m not sure I would spend the extra money on that if I come back. Some of the rooms are older and could use some updating cosmetically, but the air conditioning and appliances worked great! There is a newer section of sunscape that apparently had nicer, newer rooms... so maybe request that. They offer a “sunclub” membership which was for access to a private beach/ bars and should have nicer rooms... but I heard multiple people complain that they didn’t think the sunclub experience was anything different than the regular one (so maybe save your money and don’t do that??). There are plenty of things to do & excursions to book if you’d like. I loved Curaçao overall and hope to be back.
My wife went to Curacao while attending college in the states almost 35 years ago. After being married 32 years, we decided to revisit her fond memories of Curacao. We chose Sunscape Resort & Spa and we were very happy to have met some wonderful people on and off the resort. We love all inclusive resorts and are excited to see how the new Dreams resort looks after it opens next month.
The most notable part of our trip was meeting Chris Theo and his wife Irina Galan at the AMResorts UVC members club. Two of the nicest people we have ever met during our travels around the world. Chris & Irina helped us learn all about Curacao's island life and what AMResorts and UVC have to offer. Our trip turned out to be one of the best islands we have ever visited. We will definitely return to Curacao someday.
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.
