We used this hotel as a quick overnight between Bonaire and Miami. The hotel is in a great city location in what looks like the historic district and within walking distance of the coast. The hotel is an old monastery with the room doors right off a central enclosed court yard. It is not the Marriott, but it is nicely restored- love the historic charm. The staff was very friendly and accommodated us in our very early checkout. We did not get to try the breakfast, but you ordered what you wanted the night before instead of buffet style. Hotel staff arranged all the taxi service for us to and from the airport and gave us a nice welcome drink of sweet tea on our arrival. The beds were comfy, the shower hot, and the price was reasonable....all you could ask for. We would stay there again.
"For couples and young people (Deluxe Ocean view)"
I have to start by saying that I had 5 amazing days in this hotel. The staff is amazing, they really made an effort to make us feel extremely comfortable. The food was definitely better than I expected but the drinks were just good. The wines were good, others not so good. Just two options for beer was kind of disappointing. However, Amstel and Polar were really good beers. Activities at the hotel were really cool, specially V-ball if you find good players. The sunset is beautiful and if you have the opportunity ask for room 2503 or similar, the view from my room was fantastic.
If it is in your budget rent a car for one day and head out to Westpoint and visit all the beaches on the way back (Port Marie, Knip, Lagun, Cas abao). In Lagun walk the stair up to the top of the right hill and take a nice drink on the bar with an amazing view. If you have the equipment do some snorkling on these places. I rented the car in El Alamo in the Lions Dive because it was cheaper than others (There is one renting place at the Sunscape, Hertz, and I did not know it until I got there, lack of info I guess). There is no transportation from or to the hotel, at least in my package from Expedia; I heard the hotel changed that recently, which meant that I had to pay 40$ per trip on taxi, keep that in mind. Go to the Boulevard close to the hotel it is very nice. All the services in the hotel were really good.
It was an amazing option and I would recommend it blindly to anyone
"Great hotel near the other resorts and dolphins!"
We had a great deal, $90/night. Our room overlooked the dolphin academy, which meant we get to watch the dolphins as much as we wanted from our room! This place is also right across from the rest of the resorts, which was great for shopping, resting, quick bites to eat, and for drinks.
Normally we don't stay in resorts; we usually like being near areas that aren't so heavily touristed, but the deal was too good to pass up.

Excellent house reef, perfect diving from shore or a short boat ride away
Lovely staff and fantastic service for food and amenities
The hotel is made up of cabins spread out over beautiful well-cared for grounds. They've been recently renovated, so look new. Very pleasantly surprised that the two beds we requested were queen size and comfortable. Our room had a fairly large fridge, a microwave and a coffee maker with a good supply of coffee. Lots of ice in the ice machine by the office.
Don't know about the shuttle, it was definitely nice to have a car and not be tied to their schedule (the shuttle to town and to the beach is once a day, leaves the beach at 4). The hotel is walking distance to a small mall (Zuikertuin), and there is a large grocery store (Mangusa) on the way to the best beaches with amazing fruit salads.
With a car the location is great. Head north on the ring road to the beaches, head south on the ring road to get to town. The hotel has lots of parking. When coming from the airport there is a sign at the roundabout to get to the hotel, otherwise it's very confusing at first.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! Americans be warned though, since Annemarie and Marcel are European they have chosen couches and beds that are more of a European style- meaning the couches are very small (think more like Ikea) and the king size beds are actually two twins beds pushed together (so the middle of the bed is VERY uncomfortable and the mattresses themselves weren't very comfortable either). There is also the fact that the washing machine, dryer, and refrigerator were all in Dutch which did pose a few problems for us, but we figured them out eventually. Otherwise we loved everything though! The location was great, the facilities were gorgeous and exactly as pictured, and we had a wonderful time!
