Travel By Bob had the opportunity to experience some of the highlights of Curacao and one of its resorts, the all-inclusive Sunscape Curacao Resort.
Resort: Sunscape Curacao Resort
Travel Dates: August 14-18, 2018
We arrived at Curacao International Airport (also known as Hato International Airport) on the afternoon of August 14th on American Airlines #2739 from Miami. The flight from Miami is a little under 3 hours and ours was a very smooth flight over the Caribbean. As of this post, Curacao Int’l Airport offers non-stop flights from three U.S. cities– Charlotte, New York City-JFK, and Miami. With the renovations currently taking place at the Curacao Airport, I am expecting the number of flights to increase in the next few years. Customs and immigration are a breeze. You can even speed up the immigration process more so by completing an Online ED Card. If you do not complete the online form, you will receive the printed version on the plane prior to arrival.
The entrance to the resort is very unassuming and the lobby is very modest compared to most other all-inclusive resorts in Mexico or the Dominican Republic. The rooms at the resort provide comfort and are more than enough for most guests. Food, drinks, and service at the resort are excellent. Bartenders and servers throughout the resort are very friendly and eager to keep your drink full. We enjoyed meals at the World Café Restaurant (buffet), Oceana Restaurant (seafood), Da Mario Restaurant (Italian), and the Bluewater Grill (grilled specialties.) The Bluewater Grill Restaurant was my favorite: the ribs, chicken wings, and steak were all excellent. If you like seafood and fish, I strongly recommend the Oceana Restaurant. The World Cafe Restaurant was great for breakfast and lunch. The resort also features a coffee bar with fresh-made coffee, cappuccino, espresso, donuts, and other pastries. The beach and location are two great features of the resort that can’t be understated. The beach at the resort features soft, white sand and crystal clear turquoise blue water. The breakers keep the waters calm. For those looking to explore outside of the resort, Downtown Willemstad is about a 10-minute bus ride from the resort. Downtown Willemstad is a must-visit. It’s Amsterdam meets the Caribbean. Tons of shops and restaurants fill the downtown area. Visitors can easily spend a day or two exploring this area. Overall, I enjoyed Curaçao and all that it has to offer. The Sunscape Curaçao Resort is a great place to stay. It’s a very comfortable, clean, and friendly resort. I look forward to a future visit.
