A good place to stay! Papagayo resort is a very good value place to stay. The chalets are clean and fully equipped. The staff is helpful, and there is an excellent restaurant on the premises (far better than others we tried in Curacao). If you like a condo style place, this is it.
Didn’t want to leave! We stayed at Papagayo for five days. I recommend the resort for anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable, and surprisingly private base for exploring Curacao as well as for just decompressing. A short walk takes you to Jan Thiel Beach where you can enjoy the Caribbean, swim and snorkel, and even have a restaurant meal.
This place is paradise. The architecture is beautiful: half Sumatran, half Caribbean bungalow, all in impeccable taste. Everything is understated, nothing tacky. Our bungalow was amazing, with sunset views of the sea. The wrap around veranda with hammock was great for reading, and for kids playing, all surrounded by a manicured tropical garden.
