Best known for its beautiful UNESCO World Heritage sites, alluring beaches, and year-round good weather, there’s lots to love about the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao.

Ready to find a great place to stay? Check out this list of the best all-inclusive resorts in Curaçao.

From family-friendly resorts to luxury boutique hideaways, there’s a fantastic all-inclusive option to suit every vacation style.

This colorful Dutch Caribbean Island has historically offered a distinctly European vibe. Especially in its accommodation offerings.

But that’s changing. Recently, Curaçao has begun to embrace the all-inclusive vacation concept.

Maybe it’s because of the increasingly easier airlift, improved infrastructure or targeted marketing. Whatever the reason, Curaçao has recently captured the attention of North American visitors in a big way.

These travellers are keen on no-stress vacations where everything from dining to activities to room are wrapped into one price. There are no surprise costs.

Over the past two decades, I’ve stayed in several Curaçao accommodations while writing for My Curaçao Guide, Fodor’s guidebooks, A Taste for Travel and other publications.

Out of the many places I’ve stayed, here are my choices for the best all-inclusive resorts in Curaçao (listed by travel style rather than rank).

I’ve also included lots of insider tips to help you enjoy the best Curaçao vacation at whatever resort you select on this colorful Dutch Caribbean island.

1. Sandals Royal Curaçao

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Couples.

Sandals Royal Curaçao, the behemoth adult-only all-inclusive brand, made a big splash on the island when they opened in the summer of 2022.  

After reimagining the former Santa Barbara Resort on the southeastern end of the island (Google Map), Sandals Royal Curaçao launched their all-inclusive program with unlimited food and drink at eight restaurants and 13 bars, 24/7 room service, and even a food truck park.

The all-inclusive plan at Sandals Royal Curaçao includes gratuities, water sports and activities such as night-illuminated tennis courts.

They also added many ‘firsts’ unique to the Sandals brand here. The most spectacular first is the uber impressive split-level translucent seafront infinity pool.

Equally impressive are the new Awa Seaside Bungalows with private plunge pools, and the Kurason Island Bungalows set around a heart-shaped outdoor pool.

Guests opting for either of these ‘butler suites’ also get complimentary Mini Coopers for island explorations.

The complimentary coaster bikes and golf shuttle service are easy ways to whisk around this massive resort. Also new is a dine-around program credit (on qualifying stays) to explore off-property restaurants.

Although the location is rather remote – nothing is within walking distance – complimentary airport transfers are included.  

Extra Special: The 18-hole  Old Quarry Golf Course next door is widely considered one of the Caribbean’s best golf courses. 

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Plan a visit to Serena’s Art Factory where you can make your own local souvenir version of the “Chichi” giant sculpture at Sandals.

2. Mangrove Beach Corendon Curaçao All-Inclusive Resort, Curio by Hilton

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Groups.

Yes, it has a very long name, but this 399-room resort has a lot to offer.

Sandwiched between an urban mangrove forest and the cruise jetty furthest from downtown (Google Map), Mangrove Beach Corendon Curaçao All-Inclusive Resort, Curio by Hilton is out to please travelers of all ages seeking fun in the sun.

Families will appreciate the waterslides, dedicated kid’s pool, teen arcade, and swings in the sea.

Adults will enjoy the fitness center, chic lounging pool areas and elevated adult-only cigar and rum bar (though extra charges apply.)

Romantics will appreciate the few upscale split-level presidential suites with plunge pools on their balconies.

But don’t expect many spots for couple solitude here. Group fun galore is the vibe.

Mangrove Beach Corendon also sells day passes so common areas are often full. But it’s lively and fun.

Their nightly entertainment shows are first-rate.

Personally, I was very pleased with the excellent quality of food at all 10 of their restaurants and dining options.

The main buffet and goodies at the patisserie bar were standouts.

But I was disappointed that snorkeling equipment is not part of the all-inclusive program. You must rent it from the dive operator.

Extra Special: There’s an adorable little stand-alone driftwood art shop on the beach where you can take an artist-led class and create your own unique souvenirs.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Curacao’s new city park, the Rif Mangrove Park is right next door. Be sure to take a guided tour of this diverse ecosystem by foot or by sea kayak.

3. Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Beach Lovers.

Now part of the Hyatt Inclusive Collection, Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino brought their signature “Unlimited Fun” offerings to this property in 2013.

And today, I consider it to have the best all-inclusive resort beach in Curaçao. This stunning triple cove stretch of white sand with aqua waters kept calm by a man-made breakwater has a special place in my heart.

It was the first place I ever snorkeled over 25 years ago. I’ve been hooked on tropical fish finding ever since! 

Tucked away on the southeast coast and a short drive to the best of Willemstad’s downtown attractions (there’s a free daily shuttle), its location can’t be beat.

It’s right beside Mambo Beach Blvd (Google Map). a trendy complex of dozens of shops, bars, and restaurants, on yet another beautiful beach, and also walking distance to the Curaçao Sea Aquarium.

Though this all-inclusive Curaçao resort is family-focused with its excellent kids’ club, Core Zone Teens Club (ages 13-17), and rock-climbing tower, there are adult pursuits like a casino, a nightclub/sports bar, and a spa.

And the Sun Club level has an adult-only pool area. Food, cocktails and drinks are available from 8 restaurants, 4 bars, and 24/7 room service.

Extra Special: Adventurers will enjoy the fab guided snorkeling tours outside of the breakwater and the intro to scuba diving course in the pool with a same day dive off their house reef.

They’re well worth the extra cost.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Sunscape is a pioneer in reef rebuilding. Certified divers can help DiveCuracao with their project to grow a new coral forest offshore.

4. Dreams Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Multigenerational travel.

Now part of the Hyatt Inclusive Collection and tucked away on Piscadera Bay (Google Map), a historic fishing spot and pirate’s haunt, Dreams Resort is Curaçao’s best all-inclusive for multigenerational travel.

I’ve enjoyed stays at Dreams Resorts from Mexico to Panama, and this one channels their easy-going multi-vibe atmosphere. Though not adult-only, it has enough upscale accommodations, activities, and romantic escape spots to satisfy couples.

Opt for the Preferred Club level for sexy swim-out suites and adult-focused areas. The casino, spa, and nightclub are also great adult options.

Families, older adults, young singles, and small groups are also well served here. There are great kids’ clubs, numerous activities around three pools, and nightly entertainment, too.

And a well varied choice of food and beverage options are included at seven restaurants and four bars, and 24/7 room service is included.

The sandy spots aren’t broad here, but the waiting turquoise waters are exquisite and there are overwater piers and rafts.

Snorkeling is excellent, and equipment is included in the all-inclusive experience. In all, it’s a great place for a family vacation. 

Extra Special: A new Tex-Mex brewpub restaurant and sports bar, though not included, looks very cool.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: CARMABI , the island’s non-profit environmental protection foundation is next door. Their Marine Education Center is worth a visit.

5. Zoëtry Curaçao Resort & Spa

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Couples looking for a unique, boutique experience.

Now part of the Hyatt All-Inclusive Collection, Zoëtry Curaçao Resort & Spa took over the little Floris Suite Hotel of 72 rooms just off Piscadera Bay in 2021.

Over the years, I’ve stayed in many Zoëtry Resorts. I’ve always appreciated this brand’s ‘Endless Privileges’ very high-end, all-inclusive offerings focused on health and wellness, Zen style escapism, five-star food, beverage, and luxury service.

I also appreciate the fact that each of their unique boutique resorts like to offer guests something unexpected. Zoëtry Curaçao doesn’t disappoint.

This hotel has always been known for its lush tropical pool area with a private elite club feel. And it’s still lovely.

But I found onsite food and beverage outlet options to be somewhat limited. But there’s a twist.

Zöetry guests have full access to all the amenities at Dreams Resort (above) as part of the all-inclusive price.

And Dreams is a few minutes away by complimentary golf cart shuttle.

They also shuttle you to their own Zoëtry beach nearby, since the hotel is not oceanfront. But there’s another twist.

I noticed a collection of what I can best describe as large stand-alone ‘pods’ on their beach’s seaside cliff.

These will be luxury self-contained suites with private butler service. They’ll be very romantic for couples!

Guests staying in these ‘pods’ will enjoy three distinct resort experiences for the price of one!

Once these luxury pods are operational, I bet Zoëtry will become Curaçao’s most unique all-inclusive boutique resort for couples.

Extra Special: Their wine cellar room is available for private dining (extra cost).

🌟 Insider’s Tip: This brand is family-friendly but the ‘pods’ will be strictly adults-only.

6. Papagayo Beach Hotel & Resort

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Young professionals and party-people.

Jan Thiel is an entire stand-alone neighborhood and community of villas, hotels, resorts, entertainment venues, and activity centres on the southwestern part of the island.

Though this area is very popular with Dutch visitors and families who typically prefer to self-cater, Papagoya Beach Hotel & Resort (Google Map) there now has an all-inclusive package option.

Guests at either the deluxe villas or the modern apartment-style hotel complex can now avail themselves of the numerous food and drink options onsite via an identity bracelet.

Families will enjoy the private beach, seafront infinity pool, and quiet zones during the day.

But note that the Papagayo Beach Club next door is a hot spot at night.

The high energy vibe makes this Curaçao’s best all-inclusive for young professionals and party-people. 

There’s also a casino, a shopping plaza and a spa.

Extra Special: Jan Thiel Bay’s collection of clubs and bars next door are famous island-wide for their beach parties and Saturday Happy Hours.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Don’t miss the Pasawá Box Eatery, a short drive away. It’s a trendy new hotspot featuring an al fresco bar and ‘village’ of food trucks made out of shipping containers decorated by local artists.

7. Kunuku Aqua Resort

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Large families and groups with children.

This surprise off-radar all-inclusive resort (Google Map) is secreted away in the interior kunuku (countryside) and is now a Trademark Collection by Wyndham.

While this water themed resort is not on the sea, it’s an aqua park village surrounded by five swimming pools and seven waterslides.

It’s a children’s fantasyland with amusement park rides like bumper cars, too.

Enjoy all-inclusive food and drink at five dining outlets, including one with a very cool robotic bartender.

Accommodations include an eclectic range of 24 apartments and 189 rooms, some with kitchenettes.

Free shuttles to stellar spots like Porto Mari Beach are a bonus of an all-inclusive stay here. (Credit: Michele Peterson)

Some suites can sleep up to 6 people (plus a baby), making this Curaçao’s best all-inclusive for large families and groups with kids.  

Yes, it’s out of the way.

But free, regularly scheduled shuttle buses are available to Daaibooi, Porto Mari and Pirate Bay beaches, and to downtown Willemstad, too.

This Curaçao all-inclusive resort is also a good launching point for exploring the beautiful green spaces and National Parks on the island of Curaçao. Don’t miss hiking Mount Christoffel, the island’s highest summit.  

Extra Special: They offer day passes if you’d like to invite off-property guests.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Be sure to visit the nearby wild flamingo sanctuary in Jan Kok. Pick up a rental car on site.

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Luxury honeymoons and couples’ getaways.

Never designed with all-inclusive in mind, but now offering some comprehensive everything-included plans, this elite little oasis is the darling of visiting VIPs, celebs, and jetsetters.

Tucked away in its own gated idyllic sanctuary on the sea (Google Map), yet only 10 minutes from downtown, this splurge-worthy boutique hotel is perfect for honeymoons and romantic getaways.

Baoase features 23 units in a mix of deluxe suites and private villas, many with their own private pools. Honeymoon suites have their own on-deck whirlpool baths.  

The vibe is distinctly Bali-Zen with tropical gardens surrounding a serpentine swim-out circuit. The small beach – though manmade – is a delightful oasis.

Crystal clear waters lead to separate seafront hangout piers with serene lounging nooks.

The all-inclusive plan at Baoase Luxury Resort offers daily breakfast, 3-course à la carte lunches and dinners, premium spirits and wines, as well as beach cocktails and bites at their two onsite dining spots.

You can also opt for in-room dining and a personal server is included for the entirety of all-inclusive stays.

Extra Special: Book a couples massage at the beach gazebo for pure bliss.

🌟 Insider’s Tip: Baoase Luxury Resort also owns a small yacht and luxe speedboat for curated boat trips and island tours.

9. Renaissance Wind Creek Curaçao Resort

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Culture fans and history buffs.

The rainbow-coloured colonial style Renaissance Wind Creek Curaçao Resort directly behind the historic Rif Fort now offers plans that include food and drink at Renaissance-operated outlets.

Its central location right in the middle of the island’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites makes it Curaçao’s best all-inclusive resort for culture fans and history buffs.

You can spend days exploring downtown Willemstad’s delightful neighborhoods on foot and visit many museums

Plus don’t miss the very special pumpkin pancakes at the Old Market (Plasa Bieu). It’s a worthwhile walk for truly authentic local food.

All that downtown touring can get hot, but their unique man-made infinity beach on top of the seawall is the ideal place to cool off.

It also has whirlpool areas, outdoor spa offerings, and a fabulous beach bar included in your all-inclusive plan.

Their ultimate all-inclusive package (minimum 4 consecutive night stay) includes: unlimited premium brand spirits, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner (room service for lunch and dinner, too).

Best All-Inclusive Resort in Curaçao For: Groups and events.

I visited the Curacao Marriott in 2019 to witness the major rejuvenation of this historic resort (Google Map). The more than $40-million makeover was impressive.

But their grand al fresco lobby spilling onto a gorgeous seafront hospitality and leisure expanse has always been impressive.

It’s always been a favourite place in Curaçao for big outdoor weddings for locals and visitors alike. And now, with a more glamorous oceanfront swimming pool, it has become even more popular. 

A new botanical garden zone also adds to outdoor hosting options. Indoor, they have Curaçao’s largest ballroom which can host up to 850 guests.

Since they’ve recently added packages with food and drink at all their new dining areas, this is definitely now Curaçao’s best all-inclusive resort for big events such as destination weddings.

The Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort offers 336 rooms and suites. There’s also a new adult-only lap pool and a children’s club.

Their ultimate all-inclusive plan (available until April 2024, although it might be extended) includes buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at their four unique onsite restaurants.

While not 100% all-inclusive, this luxury hotel offers full-board packages that include three meals a day. Note: typically, alcoholic drinks are not included.

This legendary Grand Dame was built in 1949, making it Curaçao’s oldest operational hotel.

Updated with a wealth of modern amenities, it enjoys a central location in the district of Pietermaai, a 10-minute drive to downtown (Google Map).

It’s also where the Dutch Royal Family stays when visiting the island. 

Though this luxury property has an impressive pedigree, it’s not pretentious. The vibe is laid-back on its private double-cove beach.

Choose from three distinct wings of spacious guest rooms. There are deluxe 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, modern studios, and an adult-only wing on its own overwater pier. 

They offer full-board here. Although alcoholic drinks aren’t included, there’s a well-stocked mini-market onsite with fine spirits and cold beer.

Free daily shuttles downtown make it easy to pick up supplies.

While not 100% all-inclusive, this first-rate Curaçao hotel offers full-board packages that include three meals a day. Note: typically, alcoholic drinks are not included.

Not on the sea but set around its own nature lagoon and stellar water circuit near Mambo Beach Blvd.(Google Map), the elegant ACOYA Curaçao Resort offers enticing full board options.
