Anyone Considering Curacao?

Recommended Posts

I haven't been able to find much on the boards about Curacao. We've been considering the Sunscape Curacao Resort. The prices are great (we really wanna keep our guests cost down) and no hurricane season! Seems like the perfect destination!

 

If you been to or are considering Curacao...let me know your thoughts!!

This sounds like a beautiful destination.  I have never been but we are looking into going for our Honey Moon.  I know there are limited flights to fly out there in the summer but I'm from Toronto so maybe it's different for you :)

I have no experience either, but my bridesmaid had her honeymoon there for 2 weeks. I can find out what resorts she stayed at though if you would like! Good luck and happy planning!

I visited Curacao a few years ago. Some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen and amazing snorkeling (and obviously diving, as well, but I don't dive).

 

One place you might check out is Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club. We drove by it and it looked amazing. When you look on the map it looks really far from town, but the island is very small. We pretty much drove the entire circumference in half a day. The Kura Hulanda Village & Spa is in the centre of town and is the most unique resort I've ever seen. It incorporates historic buildings and really transports you back in time. However, it is not beach front. We also walked around the Renaissance hotel area. It's adjacent to the old town, so is a great location for exploring outside of the resort.

 

We stayed at the Hyatt, which appears to now be the St. Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, so I don't know if service levels, etc. have changed. I was there running a work event, so I didn't get to relax much (never set foot on the beach), but everyone there seemed to enjoy it and staff/service was amazing. So was the food.

 

Note that there are fringe areas around Willemstad that are pretty sketchy. It's definitely "3rd world". But within the main town center it seemed fine.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
