The Ritz Studios
What We Love
- Spacious studios in colorful Curaçao, minutes from Caribbean beaches - includes breakfastEating breakfast poolside before jumping in for a wake-up dip
- Strolling into town to experience the local culture
- Visiting beautiful Mambo Beach, where the white sands and turquoise waters will take your breath away
From its early days as an ice-cream factory to its current incarnation as a studios-only abode, The Ritz Studios has long been a place to enjoy colorful Curaçao and soak up some warm Caribbean sun. The property has been thoughtfully renovated into loft-style accommodations, but hints of its industrial past and traditional style – think charming pastel palettes and colonial sculptures – remain.
Situated in the capital’s quiet historic district, with its own mini market, street, car and scooter rental, Internet café, and launderette, the complex feels like its own tiny village (albeit one with a picture-perfect, palm-fringed pool). Should you wish to explore a real town, Punda and Otrobanda are just a five-minute stroll away, offering shops, restaurants, and beaches, where you can get a taste of the local flavor.
The spacious loft-style studios are filled with sleek, modern furnishings. The fully equipped Superior Queen rooms include a kitchenette and bathroom.
The complex includes an on-site restaurant serving breakfast daily from 7:30 to 10:30am. The poolbar is also open, serving refreshing drinks.
The complex is located in a quiet part of Willemstad’s lovely historic district, within short walking distance of charming towns, local restaurants, nightclubs and shopping spots. Mambo Beach is a five-minute car ride away.
How to Get There
Shower with cold water, almost no light in the bathroom, outside space (semi-open) shared with mostly smoking people, no private balcony or terras. Kitchen things broken and/or not working. Very dark room, like in a basement. Location not very nice, especially for woman when you want to have dinner elsewhere. Pool between walls. Positive: spacious room, and good cleaning.
We stayed there for 8 days ..has been a wonderful experience. Especially the staff is super friendly and alsoways willingness to help the guests.
It is not a 5 star hotel. You shouldn't expect that given the rate pay for a night stay. But it is worthed every penny. It is also in walking distance from the inner city of Willemstad, Pounds etc.. you save lots of money on the expensive taxi's on the island.. beter to rent a car or use public transportation.
But I would recommended Ritz Village hotel. For a wonderful stay. And don't look for details that you will find 8n 5 or 6 star hotels. it's not fair to judge them on this details.
So we got the loft one the biggest size, with ocean view and balcony. we got nada.they said sorry buy picture is old. worst part about it they didnt even offer US the room we booked even at a higher rate. also a/c sucks. no place to put soap in shower, not a singular ammenity item either. from soap to ear buds..etc
