Excellent stay at Blue Lagoon Ocean Resort

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and I can honestly say the best part of our week long trip was the time we spent on the porch over the lagoon. The water is amazingly clear and there is nice snorkeling right along the edge of the lagoon. You also have access to Mambo Beach which is a strip of beach bars and restaurants and less then a 5 minute walk from the condo. AC in the room was nice for sleeping at night, during the day you get a nice breeze throughout the condo if you leave the sliding door open which keeps it comfortable. Our favorite beach bar nearby was chill beach bar and grill, they have a fun happy hour on Fridays. For lunch we enjoyed Sea Side Terrace which is reasonably priced, has a nice view and is about a 10-15 min walk from the condo. I would recommend checking out Jan Thiel which also has a nice beach and restaurants. If you are staying for more then a few days either rent a car or become acquainted with the bus system as the cabs are very expensive and do not have meters. Our favorite beach was Cas Abao which is roughly a 45min drive. Overall the trip was amazing and when we come back we will most certainly be staying at Blue Lagoon again!

Perfect location. Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo Jan 12-20, 2018.

It is everything the pictures show and so much more. You can see beyond the lagoon directly to the ocean and see these beautiful cliffs of the coastline. The lagoon has great snorkeling, but if you venture just outside of the lagoon into the ocean (on the seaquarium side) it is STUNNING. Tons of fish and beautiful corals. We also swam down the lagoon the other way to Mambo beach. It felt like there was so much to explore and all just outside our door. And seeing the dolphins jump and play...just awesome! We had planned to do some snorkeling and maybe scuba diving excursions but had the best water right outside our door so we felt no need. There was a pool float and snorkel gear so we spent 90% of our time right on/near the lagoon and dock. It felt like our little slice of paradise.

The apartment had everything we needed. Kitchen was nice and we thought not using air conditioning during the day would be hard, but that whole wall opens up and you get a great breeze.

We were not looking for a very active vacation so we did not rent a car. We had a hard time figuring out how to get to the grocery store (lol) but did get there and there is a free shuttle service that the grocery store pays for them to pick you up. Ask about it if you need!

Mambo beach is a short walk away. Maybe just a few minutes and you’re at one restaurant. A few more and there are many restaurants and stores. We ate dinner out every night at a different restaurant on Mambo beach (8 nights) and there were still plenty of options.

The owner and Jacobien were great and easy to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip.

We used US dollars most of the trip. No problem. We did an island tour to taste iguana and blue Curacao (and more) it was nice.

Overall: amazing place to stay. Entertainment is steps away if you want, or just relax and enjoy that wonderful lagoon if you’d rather (or both!).

We also walked the cliffs to Jan Thiel beach. It was about 35 minutes and HOT. But so worth it! It felt like we just stumbled on this whole new world (that many other people had too). I would suggest to NOT follow the main path and venture off it and stay near the water. We did that on the way back and with the breeze, the walk was much more enjoyable. Plus, we got some stunning pictures of the beautiful coastline from that walk!

My husband and I plan to be back

Blue Lagoon Resort

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo at the Blue Lagoon Resort this past January. We found the condo immaculate and the living space a nice size. Jacobien and her husband, onsite managers of the condo, were helpful and informative; they are wonderful people. Despite their best efforts, however, issues exist. For example, the electrical circuit in one of the ceiling lights would not stay on – unless my husband or I tapped it by standing on a chair. There are no lamps in the living area which made the space rather dim in the evening. The television is new but the old TV wall bracket is still on the wall. The rungs of the ladder getting into and out of the lagoon are slippery and covered in algae. My husband and I found them dangerous and would strongly suggest that they be replaced with ladder steps rather than rungs. There is no air conditioning and no ceiling fan in the living room/kitchen, and there were a number of days and evenings when the room was uncomfortably warm. The bedroom does have air conditioning but no ceiling fan. We would have preferred to open the windows at night but there were no screens, and Jacobien felt it would be safer to keep the windows closed. This is unfortunate. The owner had said that there was a grill for cooking but in fact there is a grill plate next to the gas stove in the kitchen area; using it resulted in a messy time-consuming cleanup. In terms of location, the condo is across from the commercial Sea Aquarium where they train dolphins to jump on command for crowds of onlookers; that did not appeal to me. In addition, the Sea Aquarium blocks most of the view of the ocean; instead, sitting on the deck, you often see and hear the Aquarium staff vacuuming and cleaning their site. However, the deck is right next to a lagoon which provided easy access to swimming and snorkeling. The Mambo beach area, steps away from the condo, is noisy and crowded. Better beaches are north of Willemstad.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, Thank you kindly for taking the time to write a review and sending your feedback. We will take this to heart and use it to improve our services. Our feedback on the mentioned issues to get a full picture: There are plenty of lights in the open kitchen and living area. They are on a dimmer however which you can turn up and down to get stronger lights. The kitchen is equipped with a grill plate for grease free grilling. An extra table grill for outside use is in the kitchen cabinet together with an electrical extension cord. On Curacao we make use of the trade winds to cool our houses besides the airconditioning in the bedroom, usually only used during the night. Important reason for this is the extremely high cost for electricity on Curacao. There is a doorstopper on the front door to make a comfortable flow possible. Standing fans are also in place for extra comfort. From the deck and terrace you have free view up until Jan Thiel Bay over the lagoon and ocean. Next to the lagoon is the Curacao Dolphin Therapy and Research Center, not the Dolphin Academy. The Dophin Academy area is at the other (ocean side) of the Seaquarium Parc. Dolphin shows are therefor not in sight or hearing distance of the condo. Dolphins are trained and therapy is given on the lagoon side. When property's are frequently rented especially in the high (christmas) season we sometimes need some more time to get things fixed. We will always do our utmost to take care of things asap although that is sometimes a challenge on a Caribbean island moving at a slow pace. Maybe the location was not suitable for your needs and the rural and quiet area at the West side of the island would have been a better choice. It is a bit dissapoiting to receive a 3 star review amidst all 5 star reviews over the past years but definately a strong stimulance to work hard to get other issues fixed. So thank you again for taking the time and staying at Ocean Resort Blue Lagoon.

Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was in an ideal location with shopping and restaurants just a short walk away, snorkeling and swimming off the private dock and within minutes (by car) of downtown Willemstad and the beautiful less populated West End of the island. We enjoyed the diversity of activities and wish we could have stayed a few days longer to experience a little more. The catamaran ride out to Klein Curacao was one of our favorite things aside from just hanging out at the villa and enjoying our own little piece of paradise!

Josie, the property manager, was amazing! She was super easy to communicate with and answered all our questions and took care of any issues that arose!

Extraordinary! Paradise! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fabulous the location is perfect if you need a little activity it is walking distance right next door at Mambo beach. We grocery shopped and cooked for ourselves most of the time in the very well appointed kitchen. Snorkeling right of our own private dock was as good as the hour drive we took for snorkeling as well. Swimming in the Caribbean every morning from sipping my morning tea then stepping right into the water! Can't imagine there could be a better place to stay in Curacao the pictures while beautiful do not do it justice. The property manager Maria was very helpful our entire experience was wonderful!
