Have Clothes, Will Travel
We have absolutely loved every Sandals and Beaches experience we have previously had. The service and food are always top-notch, and the resorts themselves are spectacular.
This post is sharing absolutely everything you need to know about the new Sandals Curaçao and whether we recommend staying here. I’ll be covering everything in this post… the good the bad, and the downright ugly.
The gentleman who greeted us and took our bags was incredibly kind and attentive, as was the gentleman who brought our drinks. However, the woman who checked us in greeted us by going over a few points. #1 was NO smoking in the rooms or on the balconies or we will be charged some really big fee.
I would describe the general vibe here as being an “unwelcome guest at someone’s home.” Here I felt like I was constantly being a burden to the staff when ordering food, drinks, services, etc.
Not a Great Experience – Vincent’s and Butch’s are the 2 restaurants that require you to make a reservation when you check in. However, because we had such a weird check-in experience, we weren’t able to make reservations until the next day…even though my husband had asked repeatedly if he could make the reservations while we were doing the check-in process.
My husband’s deep tissue was far too hard and his masseuse was using his elbow at times to get even deeper. It seemed more like Rolfing than a deep-tissue massage. My husband was in pain for days after this one.
Eating at the different restaurants around the resort was SO hit and miss in terms of food quality… service was consistently pretty bad everywhere, with the exception of Gatsu-Gatsu and Stranded. We did have good luck at both of those restaurants.
