We stayed in Garden view Rm 150, which was very nice because the deck was very private and full of local wildlife because we faced thick natural brush. The room is also one of the closest to the lobby/bar/beach. The resort is gorgeously natural and secluded with just enough beach for the guests (which was fine because there were few non-guest visitors since we were 45 minutes from Williamstaad). I was surprised that the bathroom was not airconditioned (but we dressed in the room so it wasn't a problem#. The food at the resort was good, but not inexpensive. There are few places nearby. We loved Sol Food #right up the street, but only open Fri, Sat Sun [get a reservation]) and didn't enjoy Jaanchies. Didn't get to try Rancho El Sobrino. Beachfront grill @ resort was nice, but is not every night. We didn't experience any of the slow food service others mentioned, but we ate @ 7 or 8.
We didn't need beach shoes, but there is a lot of coral close to the beach. Snorkling is right off the beach to see 10-15 colorful fish and some live coral.
Service was always good, but certain employees were terriffic. Hank is the man.
Evenings were beautifully quiet.
"Wonderful hotel, great amenities, attentive staff"
We chose not to take the all inclusive option to give us more freedom to experience Curacao (which has an excellent array of restaurants)
Staff were wonderful, fluent in 3-4 languages and always willing to help
We're divers so it was great to have the Ocean Encounters company right on site (prices are steep especially if you're paying for equipment rental 50$/day but probably comparable to other companies on the island) - their staff was very attentive and the dive experiences were wonderful
The hotel itself has a nice private beach and a beautiful pool area
The food at the Bella Italia restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced (especially the pizzas!)
Medi also had nice options but be prepared to pay at least 60$ pp with drinks (and up to 50$ pp for the bfast buffet!)
Shor was an utter disappointment if you're not going as part of the all-inclusive option because the prices are steep and the food is mediocre at best with tiiiiny portions...so when you're paying full price, it's quite upsetting
You absolutely need a car because the drive from the plantation gate to the hotel itself is about 15 minutes and the plantation is about 30-40mins from the city of Willemstad
Staff are soo helpfull and kind! Very smily, they are there for us, mainly staff bar so sociable!
Hotel is really clean, spacious room as appartment as it said Floris "suite".
Close to the beach, easy shuttle to get the town.

What a wonderful experience. My husband and I were amazed with how welcoming and accomodating the staff was. The location was beautiful and we were so overjoyed that our room was only spteps away from the beach. The front desk and room service surprised me with a happy birthday cake as we arrived to our room. Chris, our waiter at the restaurant was so helpful about where to go and even taked to the Chef to make us our favorite meal that was only served on Thursdays as our last meal on a Tuesday! Delicious clams! We loved it so much that we will be back and recommend it to many of our friends!

We really enjoyed the lovely grounds and beautiful buildings. Having the museum on the same grounds was also very convenient. The staff was very helpful and friendly. All the wonderful and interesting sculptures around the property were very special. The pools were very soothing and done in a very natural way.
