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 were on the ship and decide to have lunch afther walking around at this beautiful place. Great hotel, clean, friendly staf and at a perfect location. We had lunch at the infinity beach. What a wonderfull place. Amazing service and most of all the tuna salad and burger nicely served by chef jef and the beautifull lady kimberly. Surely recommend this wonderfull place. We can't be more satisfied.
We have traveled the world extensively for leisure and Business and we have to say the people of Curacao and staff of the Renaissance hotel are the most personable and pleasant we have ever met. The hotel was clean, well kept and within easy access of all Willemstad and Curacao had to offer. From checkin to checkout the entire experience was wonderful. Alexis the bellman greeted us with cold water and a genuine smile. Fayola at the blue bar made excellent drinks and pleasant conversation every night we were there. Sheila at the excursion desk was very helpful in planning our entire stay. She went above and beyond to help us make the most of our time. From booking excursions to making dinner reservations she made sure our entire stay we t off without a hitch. Would recommend meeting up with her at the beginning of your trip and plan on spending at least an hour with her to get your entire trip planned. Would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to stay in Curacao.
From the moment my sister and I entered the Renaissance Curacao we felt so special. It was our birthday celebration. I am a Gold member and I purchased an ocean view room. They upgraded us to a Majestic Suite. Amazing room, breathtaking, huge and so comfortable..2 bathrooms, shower has jets, jacuzzi, extremely comfortable bed, huge balcony with a table, 2 chairs and a lounger.
Hotel : spotless, clean and modern. Great location, close to many stores, restaurants, bars, ice cream shop, casino
Beach : a sand bottom infinity pool and a freshwater pool located on the 2nd floor, beautiful and so relaxing, plenty of lounge chairs, soft sand. Starbucks is also located on the 2nd floor
Internet service : very good wifi service
Nautilus restaurant: the breakfast : everything is fresh and absolutely delicious. Worth paying for cold food buffet or all American breakfast buffet.
Staff : Shekina was wonderful. She contacted me before I traveled to introduce herself as my navigator. She paid attention to every detail of our stay. Upon arrival she welcomed my twin sister and I with balloons and nice gift bags with treats..She also arranged a bottle of champagne to be delivered to our room. She handed us vouchers for a free welcome drink by the pool. Riangelo, another navigator wrote such a nice message for our birthday on a pretty card. Shekina gave us lots of advice on things to do during our 1st visit to Curacao. She also helped arrange a tour of west side beaches. She went out of her way to make our birthday memorable. All staff are so friendly and helpful ( Arlone, Shannon, Roland, Shekina and Riangelo.
Food : I do recommend eating Curacao local food out side in Punda : fried grouper, whole red snapper ) try seaside terrace and eating in the market , inexpensive and fresh food
Overall, I highly recommend Renaissance Curacao.. beautiful property, excellent location, amazing, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful infinity pool, nice man made beach.
The hotel is just amazing. The ‚pool‘ - at least it is like the beach is more than amazing! The people over here are really really nice and also the people that are working here. Just found one of the best and sweet person here! Blue bar (in the hotel). Her name is Fayola. Best Barkeeper I’ve ever met... and I travel a lot. !!!
100%!!! Some question or wish .. just ask her! Thank you!
We just stopped in here to try their casino and didn't last long. They deal a strange game of black jack where the dealer doesn't take their last card until everyone has played their hand. Nothing wrong with it, just different, in that the dealer never has to look at a hole card, because they don't have one. The place was very clean, but eerily quiet. The dealer had nothing to say, and no smile for the entire time we were their. Just changing money and chips, no personality. Not a lot of action in the casino, but we were there early, so maybe it picked up after we left.
