This sprawling, immaculate 350-room luxury resort draws both couples and families with its lovely spa, tennis lessons, kids' camp, and three pools. With an 18-hole golf course and meeting rooms, the hotel is also popular with business and corporate guests. The wide, white-sand beach and protected swimming area are also highlights. Though it enjoys a quiet location with natural beauty, the Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort is far from town and no other restaurants or hotels are anywhere close by.
As one of the few fully all-inclusive resorts on the small island of Curacao, Sunscape Resort is a popular pick. This large 341-room upper-mid-range resort is a great family-friendly option, with many games and activities available for teens and kids, from soccer and kayaking to movie nights and even a rock wall. Its rooms are colorful and updated rooms and the central location is close to shops and nightlife. The tradeoff for these features and convenience are the crowds, which often pack the beach and pool areas.
