We go on vacation to relax, have fun and see new things in the country we are visiting. We therefore always look for a special place to stay that has an exceptional ambiance, things to do for and the kids and with the convenience of home. For the last 8 years we have visited Curaçao yearly and we have stayed at many different resorts, but our stay in this condo at La Maya was by far our greatest experience!
It all started with warm reception at the resort by the owner who got us settled down quickly after a 10 hour flight . She made us feel welcome, showed us around the place and explained everything we needed to know to start enjoying our vacation right away. She know the island very well and could give us some great tips for some of the spots only the locals know.
The appartment is clean, spacious, fully equipped, comfortable beds and has a extraordinary view on the Spanish lagoon. You can open the sliding doors and connect the terrace to the living room in the evenings or just enjoy the fully airconditioned living room when it's hot outside at noon. One of the lounge seats on the private beach was my "office" in the early morning where I checked my e-mail or just enjoyed surfing on the internet with a seabreeze and a cold beer. The kids would spend hours playing in the two swimming pools or building sandcastles on the private beach. The kids could splay around the facility without us having to worry about their whereabouts since the resort has a private entrance and is located in a nice neighbourhood.
Curaçao is a small island so from east to west everything is very well accessible from the resort. My advice is to rent a car so you have maximum flexibility to drive around the island without being dependent of public transportation or taxi's. There are good restaurants close to the resort e.g. I had the best crispy Roman pizza just 2 minutes away at a place called Il Forno! But there are many more good places to drink and eat in the Janthiel area just 5 minutes away.
Three weeks past without inconveniences nor any issues of any sort. We had a great time and met some nice people while on the island.
I can highly recommend this condo to anybody visiting Curacao who seeks comfort and convenience of home, exceptional ambiance and a hassle free stay. Next year I hope to stay here again!
