Although Curacao is considered to be a Caribbean island, the re sort did not even bend (let alone cater) to Caribbean clientele--very disappointing. Also, transport to town was outrageously expensive ($22 US/person return...we were not comfortable with riding the bus); Even though the food was very tasty, the Medi restaurant dinner menu choices were very limited; there was no free wifi in the rooms; we were charged for beach towels; there was always an extremely long wait for food in the 3 restaurants. We felt like hostages on the compound because we wanted to experience the night life in Curacao but the resort was not very accommodating...offered no suggestions, and basically advised us we were on our own.
We were there to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday from 7/11/14 to 7/17/14. The resort is absolutely breathtaking...beach is beautiful; security gate was a plus; every staff member we encountered was extremely outstanding, especially at Medi: (MaryAnn, Jonathan the Chef, Mark, Duhty(?), Angela, Karen(?), the cleaning crew--including the groundsmen); the little cafe with the gelato, etc; food at Medi was excellent (albeit limited); loved the live entertainment on Tuesday night...would have loved another night of that!
