Having a view of the incredibly blue waters of the Caribbean sea that you can enjoy to your liking can be an important factor in choosing the right hotel. Quite a few of Curacao’s hotels, resorts and villas are located right near the beach, as, for example, Avila Beach Hotel, Lions Dive and Beach Resort or Lodge Kura Hulanda.

Rentals

Those aiming for more space and/or privacy can always opt for a rental. Whether it will be an apartment, a bungalow or a villa, it’s totally up to you.
