    Gezellige plek om te verblijven op Curacao. Lovely place to stay on Curacao.

    The houses are quite outdated and could do with a renovation on the inside.

    Livingstone is a very nice and cosy resort with a shared swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The houses are build and colored in typical Curacao style, which makes the holiday experience even better. The houses are partly privately owned and partly owned by a travel agent. Only downside is that most houses are quite outdated and could do with a renovation. De location Jan Thiel Beach is perfect. Jan Thiel has all the necessary facilities for a great beach holiday, including beach beds for various prices, nice restaurants (not to expensive), supermarket (Dutch Albert Heijn-which is quite expensive), car rental service, shops and a marine harbor close by (Spanish water) with again more nice restaurants.

    Nice, spacious room but it needs maintenance

    The maintenance in this hotel needs improvement. The door handle was loose and issues closing the door from inside. They came twice, but problem was not solved. Room had other issues, not clean, rusty water tap and ventilator not properly attached to the ceiling. They never cleaned underneath the beds.. The breakfast in the restaurant was ok, but very basic and we had a BBQ dinner buffet style once, but meat was lukewarm and not tasty, so for breakfast it is better to do shopping at the local AH supermarket and there are plenty of dining options on the beach.

    The rooms were nice and lots of space. The pool itself was great. The fact that car park was right next to your own entrance door.

    This is a well kept resort, five minutes to the beach in a good location.

    • Stayed 17 nights

    It would have been nice to have some basic supplies such as one roll of paper towels,one dishwashing tablet etc. They provide nothing. Our first room (39) had a view of the public toilets. We were fortunate to be able to change our location. Work crews used the designated parking for guests. The shower has it own heater. You could not have hot water and good pressure. If you increased the pressure, the water went cold. It would have been helpful to know that this is a predominately Dutch resort. In 17 days we were the only English speaking guests.

    The apartment was exactly as pictured. The location and neighborhood were excellent. The grounds were well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a good response to our problems. Room was cleaned and linens changed even more frequently than we expected for a 17 day stay. There are several very good restaurants in walking distance. We did not eat at the resort . The restaurant and bar had few customers.

    We traveled with two kids. The location was perfect: close to the beach and to restaurants. The beds were comfortable and the two bedroom villas had the room we needed. The kitchen was fine but it would have been helpful if basics like salt, pepper, dish detergent.... were provided.

    The rooms were very basic with poor quality linens. The staff was a mix of friendly but not accommodating to requests for help. The grounds had bits of trash strewn about and the entire place seemed worn and a bit unkempt.

    Close proximaty to the Jan Thiel beach and fantastic location for the New Year’s Eve celebration.

    The air condition in the bedroom made occasionally some strange noise. In the living room there was no air co but just a fan in the ceiling which was quite loud as it needed to be kept running at max speed in order to get some cooling.

    The staff are very friendly. The apartment is nicely furnished and the kitchen well equipped. The wi-fi worked well and fast. Bed was comfortable. The safe in the room was big enough to hold a laptop. The pool area was nice. Parking was always available as there was a parking slot for each bungalow.

    Points for improvement: the max capacity for the airconditioner is 17 degrees and therefore you have to leave it on the whole day to keep the desired temperature. they should offer the possibility to have more than 3 pillows on a bed if asked for. Modernize the furniture.

    The receptionist was very kind and professional. The apartment was cleaned every 4 days and was left spotless. Overall very kind and professional staff. They have a very nice restaurant where you can enjoy delicious meals every evening in case you would prefer not to leave the resort for an evening. Great swimming pool but also if you prefer the beach you will receive a green card for free entry to the beach (beach loungers not included). great stay for families with kids.

    Comfortable beds, great service following the hotel's mission "I want to spoil you". Felt greatly treated throughout the whole stay, actually extended twice. Don't miss the happy hour at the pool, where you can sit in the comfy water and have a cool beer or glass of wine. Also, nice wellness area
