A jaunty pastiche of Curacao’s candy-colored harborfront, the sprawling resort is like a Crayola explosion, both inside and out. Bright gabled buildings, towering palm trees, high-end boutiques and cozy seating areas dot the grounds, while the public spaces embrace the more-is-more maxim with gusto, favoring chandeliers and clashing fabrics and textures wherever possible.
Bed and Bath
As you’d expect from the Marriott chain, the rooms are uniformly dressed and meticulously clean, but won’t excite design buffs. The clashing color scheme extends from the carpets and walls to the curtains and bedding, and ocean-facing guestrooms add a shock of Caribbean blue through the floor-to-ceiling windows. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, fierce air conditioning and colorful tile bathrooms with over-tub showers, Aveda toiletries and vanity mirrors.
From the much-hyped infinity beach pool and the stretch of boutiques (including Mont Blanc, Armani Exchange and more) to the five bars and restaurants and the on-site casino, the Renaissance Curacao excels at brain-off-bliss-out entertainment. On the dining front, it’s high Americana at the Infinity Beach Bar, where all good things come in a basket, while the Xquisit is upscale European, with one of the most extensive wine lists in town. Learn about the real pirates of the Caribbean at the 19th century Rif Fort— a UNESCO World Heritage Site ideally situated on hotel grounds.
How to Get There
We are staying here at the Renaissance.. at first the system was down so we couldn't check in. But later in the night at 10 we had our room. I nice suite room. Michelangelo was so great to us. The breakfast staff was friendly...even the room attendents were friendly to us. Its sooo amazing staying here.
My family and I stayed at the Renaissance for one week and it was fantastic. Kudos to hotel staffs Roland (doorman) and Stephanie (waitress). They courtesy and professionalism epitomizes great customer care. Kudos also goes out to the doorman that was cross training in the kitchen (forgot his name). Besides the great staff at the Renaissance, the infirmity pool is awesome. The infirmity pool area is made to resemble the beach and over looks to the ocean. You get the feeling of being at the each when you are in the infinity pool however if you want the feel of chlorine, there is a regular pool nearby.
Besides the pool activities at the hotel there is also a casino where you can go after a day of chilling at the pool or shopping at the nearby stores.
The only negative is that I do not believe that housekeeping sweeps or mops the floor once you are checked in. The floor in the room is tiled and gets very sandy/dusty after two days especially if you visit the pool area often. The mattress is also hard and can be uncomfortable.
All in all, I will definitely recommend the Renaissance Curacao Resort for your next vacation or staycation.
This hotel is amazing. From the scenery, the central location, casino, amenities are to the beautiful staff. I decided to travel to Curacao solo after no one could go with me and decided to stay at this hotel after weeks of debating where to stay and this was the best decision. The staff welcomed me like family. Everyday all day they asked if i was ok and if I needed anything. I never felt like a solo traveler during my entire trip they became friends and family by time I left in 4 days.
I was greeted with an entourage singing Happy birthday in their native language not only once but twice second time in the casino when it took wind again it was my birthday. I didn’t mind because the fruit cake was amazing.
The entire staff is amazing. But a special thank you needs to go to: Frensel bell boy
