Hotel Kura Hulanda
Beautiful Lodge By the Sea
Wonderful location, service, amenities, and diving. Away from the hurly-burly of town. Highly recommended.
Directions: At furthest northwest point of island-Westpunt.
Great Location in a Colorful Capital City
Beautfully created / restored property on Otrabanda side of Willemstad. Excellent service, cleanliness and a myriad places to discover within the compound. Two swimming pools, including a grotto with a waterfall; a great choice of restaurants within the complex and nearby. Modern tiled room and quite private and quiet. Safe parking for guests. Awesome slavery museum on the property. Hotel provides free transport to sister location at beautful Westpunt town and to nearby beach/bar resort for sunning, lunch, drinks, snorkeling, and swimming. I saw my first hawksbill turtle while snorkeling there.
Unique Quality: Authentic dutch caribbean atmosphere. Friendliness of several Dutch students working as interns; relaxed and safe environment right in the heart of Willemstad's Otrabanda side.
