The Marriott Curacao is Reopening

Have a Dream Getaway, at affordable rates

Remember the good times we had at the Marriott Curacao during the North Sea Jazz Festivals?

The most fondly-remembered year was 2013, when his Purple Highness and his amazing band members went swimming with the caliente chicas from Aruba, all day, all night.

I can tell stories.

That was so unforgettable.

The following years we though the hotel was a bit frayed as we were crunching Hummus and veggie sticks for lunch at the pool bar, the selection of edibles was limited, but we all swore to be back once the big reno project wraps up.

Then Louella returned to Aruba, the resort sold, and closed September 16th, 2016, or perhaps it sold first then closed and the project said to take 18 months, took almost three years, but guess what??

The beloved resort is opening October 21st, under the Aimbridge Hospitality flag, for a very soft pre-opening sneak peak, with a special rate for locals.

You read it here first.

That’s a fantastically affordable price tag. Remember it’s a pre-opening sneak peak, so you should expect water in the pool and palm trees, also 324 lovely rooms, but perhaps there will be some work still ongoing.
