This unit is perfectly sufficient to look after up to six people. I am only reviewing the unit rather than Curacao which we love or the grounds which you get for free with any of the units at Ocean Resort. We are part of a group which have 3 units rented at Ocean Resort so we are able to compare these as we make comments about this unit.
The unit is sparsely furnished and could use more or different seating in the living room for 6 people. It really only fits 5 at this point unless you pull in a chair from the balcony. Note that there is no inside table so all meals need to be eaten outside.
As noted in the pictures which are relatively accurate as to the current condition and furniture, the bathrooms are a single sink bowl. This makes it difficult to spread out your bathroom stuff like you might at home. There is a ledge in the bathroom where you can put things but the location is unfortunately directly over the toilet.
The bedroom furniture looks older and is the bare minimum needed. If you have traveled a bit, you will understand this next comment and know that it is not really a complaint - just level-setting before you get here: the beds are the infamously hard ones you find on vacation rather than the plush top that North Americans tend to have at home.
This is a full 3 bedroom which will sleep 6. The other units we have are a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom which would only sleep 5.
This is a top (2nd) floor unit which allows you a peek a boo view of the ocean which is a nice plus. By contrast, the lower level units have much larger patios which allows for lounge chairs within your own space rather than needing to go to the pool or beach to lie down but do not have a view of anything.
If we had not seen some of the other units here we likely would have rated this as a 4 to 4.5 star but when you know that there are units that have been updated then you know what this unit could be with a little more TLC.
The grounds are excellent and the location is walking distance to about 10 restaurants. Curacao is a spectacular island and in the area, Ocean Resort is the winner for quality overall despite my suggestions on how to improve this unit. (We have stayed at other places in the Sea Aquarium area so we know which resorts are the best around here.)
