Curacao Spring Vacation
Submitted: March 18, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
I would recommend this rental to others. I found that the owners were helpful and friendly, and the care takers were great. Anything that we needed, they helped us with. Marazul Dive Resort is about 35 minutes from town (down a narrow and pot-hole filled road), so we had more time in the car than I had anticipated. After traversing the entire island, we were extremely happy to have selected this resort. Unfortunately we didn't know until the last day that the snorkeling was great right off the resort - we would have spent less time traversing the island. Our favorite beaches were also close (Cas Abou and Porto Maria), Shete Boka is amazing and right down the road, the sunsets are beautiful, the mountains surround the town, and the grounds are very well maintained. The unit was comfortable, fully stocked with cooking utensils, and met all of our needs - although it did get a little tight with 6 adults and one 2 year old - who is a whirlwind of energy! However, most of our time was spent outside - including all meals on the patio. The windows in the unit are older and difficult to open but we just left the doors open to get a nice breeze through the condo - and closed them at night to reduce mosquitoes. I wish that we would have asked for grocery delivery the first night as we got in late and nothing was open so we survived on airplane snacks for dinner. We had breakfast at the hotel next door. It was $25 USD per person but it was all you could eat - some interesting things but the pancakes were amazing as was the pulled beef dish. Be sure to eat at Meisje's which is Westpunt - crazy good sangria as well as amazing food and service. Sol Food was also good - the steaks and fish is what I would recommend as well as the amazing brownies. We are very happy that we stayed here and just wish we would have relaxed more onsite during our stay.
