‘Dare To Explore’ Hilton Curacao

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014


I stopped by to check out some changes and here’s what people were talking about.

The Spa is now called Living Well Health and Beach Club.  The guys can drop the young ones off at Kidz Club and unwind from golf or water sports at the Spa.

Word around the resort is that they have some cool new treatments especially for men.

You now have a choice of decked out Guest Rooms, classy Suites, or posh Executive quarters.  All have private balconies.

That’s a great spot to keep the party going with views of the Bay or the island.

Head’s up!  Suite and Executive dwellers can grab a complimentary Continental breakfast in the executive lounge plus appetizers and drinks after sunset.

They have a Business Center that was equipped to handle every workaholic’s challenge.

If you’re on the run you will appreciate the quick and casual Beach Bar and Grill.  Nearly on the water, great views, tasty dishes from local to international and don’t forget to try the tropical cocktails.

If you want to liven up your party make sure you check out the theme nights.   It’s seriously unforgettable fun and usually with live entertainment.

It’s really cool that in-room dining has been extended to 1:00 am.  Beef burger and a beer works.  But so does Lobster Tail, Tiger Prawns, Scallops, Smoked Salmon, Mussels, and Clams.

It’s insane what you can have delivered to your balcony after midnight.

I had a chat with a member of a wedding party.   There were over 50 guests at the wedding and the party continued by the pool and beach into the wee hours.

Lots of fun to be had by all.


I’ll keep the sand warm and beer cold until you get here!

The Hyatt became The Princess and then The Santa Barbara.

The Breezes Curacao became a Sunscape.

Habitat Curacao closed and the Lodge Kura Hulanda may get new owners.
