Curacao Marriott Beach Resort and Emerald Casino

This 248-room resort (formerly the Sonesta) is Curaçao’s only AAA four-diamond resort, an elegant resort filled with a Dutch Caribbean style. Cool lemon walls contrast with chile pepper-colored roofs, all framed by stately palms. The property is a veritable oasis on this dry island, just down the beach from the desalinization plant (the world’s largest), where unsightly smokestacks distract slightly from the view but don’t interfere with the enjoyment of this beautiful property

We especially liked the low-rise, open-air quality of this resort, starting with the lobby, where you’ll arrive to a view over a cascading fountain across the palm-shaded pool and out to the sea. Every room includes either a balcony or patio (ask for a ground floor room for direct beach access) and at least a partial view of the ocean.

The hotel has many family-friendly features including a year-around children’s program, babysitting services, roll-away beds, and cribs.
