A Solo Traveler’s Experience at The Royal Sea Aquarium Resort Curacao

I received a media rate from the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort Curaçao in exchange for my honest review. For more information on the sponsored post and/or affiliate link policy, please click here.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen photos from my solo trip to Curaçao. My hotel choice was the Royal Sea Aquarium Curacao. The Royal Sea Aquarium Resort Curacao is about 20-30 minutes from the airport and is a quick drive from Downtown Willemstad.

Room at the Royal Sea Aquarium

I stayed in their Junior Suite with two double beds, television with cable, a small seating area, mini kitchenette (microwave, coffee maker, utensils, and mini-fridge), bathroom with a bath and shower, vanity area, and outdoor area with seating steps away from the outdoor pool. The room was decorated with paintings showing different monuments, traditional homes and the people of Curaçao.

Amenities and Activities at the Royal Sea Aquarium Curacao

Guests have access to a private beach and pool areas on the resort. A free shuttle to Punda every weekday at 9 AM and pick up at 3 PM. If you do not want the pickup, you can take a taxi or bus back to the hotel. I took advantage of the shuttle and chose the bus option. It was a 15-20 minute drive and 3 Netherlands Antillean guilders (about $1.60). There is also free shuttle service to the local supermarket to pick up food and drinks for your room.  Complimentary access is also given to the Curacao Sea Aquarium next door.

The Royal Sea Aquarium Curacao has pretty much something to do every day for guests. Activities for the week included a BBQ, karaoke, airbrush tattoos, yoga, and more. The resort is also walking distance from the Mambo Beach Blvd, an area filled with restaurants, shops, bars, and nightclubs. The resort was very quiet in the evening so it was nice to experience Curacao nightlife.

As a first-time solo traveler, I loved the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort Curacao. The front desk staff was always available for a quick chat, arranging transportation, or answering general questions.  I LOVED the ocean views by the pool area. At any time of the day, I had the opportunity to walk by the ocean side for a potential swim or enjoy the breeze sitting on the rocks.

    Wow you went alone? Go you!!! That’s good though you don’t have to worry about coordinating time to meet someone else’s scheduling. Looks like a lovely place to be, glad you got some time away

    Sounds like a great place to visit whether you’re with friends, a significant other or by yourself. Nice to hear that the hotel staff was so kind and accommodating. I’ll have to add this to my list of places to go.

    Wow that looks absolutely beautiful!! I’m not sure if I could do a solo trip myself I’d be nervous being in a place that I don’t know anyone. Kudos to you!!

      YES! Everyone I know asked why I just didn’t go to Aruba since it’s their sister island, but I’m so happy I went here instead. I’d go to Aruba, but another time. lol
