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
Fantastic salt water infinity pool beach, which is so much more impressive in person than in the photos. You really can't get the effect until you're there. While there are amazing beaches 45 minutes away, those locations are fantastic if you just want to be on a beach. This combination of the huge salt water infinity beach and location right in town was perfect for us. The rooms were standard fare - very nice. What really sold it was the location and beach together that made it absolutely the right choice. Very glad we were there, especially after visiting some of the big resorts well out of town.
we strolled into town every night for lunch and dinner, with the fun floating bridge just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Drinks by the hotel beach in the afternoon made you feel like you're right on the water, and had the added attraction of watching the boat traffic head in and out of the very close harbor.
A very good hotel, with excellent facilities and super friendly staff. We enjoyed it very much, good breakfast, free parking, free Wi-Fi, nice pool and gym.
Located just a few minutes walk from all the places you need to go to in the touristic part of willemstad.
The only disadvantage is the events hosted in the hotel atrium which can be a bit noisy, but even that didn't degraded our stay. So, it's very recommended.
We stayed here for 5 nights it was perfect, the room always clean and beautiful deco, breakfast Amazing the kindness of the staff from the door man to the room key keepers specially Jaqueline and Margaritha they will always give us a good night chocolate and water ! We are inlove wirh this place and last but nos least the breakfast are absolutely delicious!! Beach pool view = Paradise
This is our fourth time at this lovely small hotel located on a private beach in the Rif fort in Curacao. We almost never leave the property ,it is so relaxing. So different from resorts where your room is miles from the beach and the dining room , everything here is a 3 minute stroll. The people who work at the hotel make it a special experience from delightful Piet in the dining room to beautiful Jennifer at the beach bar. Their friendliness is genuine and they all love their jobs.From playing with iguanas while eating breakfast outside to enjoying a coffee in the Starbucks to sampling the delicious themed buffet dinners, it’s the best. On the beach you can always get a lounge under a palapa in the shade or bake in the sun. I’ve been to resorts where you had to fight for a beach chair, but not here. The beach is always spotless and the Infinity Beach club has a great menu all day that you can enjoy without moving from your chair. I recommend this resort to anyone who wants to chill out and vacation hassle free.
We are from Curacao and like to eat breakfast and dinner at Renaissance. We didn't new that the prices changed. It is to expensive now. You cannot eat everything for that price but we liked it. I would like to thank wereline for the nice service and the extensive information. We came to celebrate the birthday of my husband. He was very surprised by the birthday song and enjoyed it. Wereline is a nice person and suggested us their Christmass dinner. We will think about it.
