I cannot say enough good things about this experience! I was hesitant to book because I didn't know what to expect but it was the best day on our 7 day cruise. From the moment we were picked up to the moment we left the resort - it was fantastic! The staff was friendly and the food/drinks were amazing (try the fish tacos!). The beach and pool were incredible and we found lots of options for seating both in the shade and sun. Truly, I can't recommend this experience enough! You won't regret it - it's worth every penny! I hope to return with my family for a longer stay in the future. - Molly, April 23, 2019


We took this excursion in March, 2019, while on a cruise ship Port call. There entire experience was well coordinated... From the people who meet you at the pier, to the driver, to the front office staff... Everyone was great.The drive to the resort is about 30 minutes each way, so be prepared. The resort itself is fantastic. The pool area is beautiful, and the beach is beautiful, with Crystal clear water. When they say "all inclusive", they mean exactly that. When we had lunch, there were no menu restrictions. Including options that had $35.00 prices lunch was fantastic.This was the best all inclusive we have ever taken. Trust me, just do it. - Jim, March 19, 2019


We were in Curacao for a day while on a cruise ship and decided to go to the Santa Barbara Resort. What a great day! The resort was not crowded so we had our pick of the wonderful chairs/umbrellas, day beds or hammocks. The pool was beautiful and the staff was fantastic. Drinks were always available and we loved the food. We would definitely come back again! - Lori, Jnuary 14, 2019


My fiancee and I booked a cruise for Christmas in the Caribbean. After booking excursions in almost every port, we did not find anything in particular we wanted to do in Curacao. Someone on an online forum had suggested to look at resortforaday.com so we did and found the Santa Barbara resort in Curacao. The best value!! All inclusive, and they do mean ALL inclusive! Our hands were never without a drink, and the bartender made us anything and everything we wanted! The food was amazing - we enjoyed a delicious lunch poolside and relaxed under the sun. I would highly recommend this for anyone, and if you go and Jaymy is bartending, just ask him to make you a Jaymy special!!! - Amanda, January 11, 2019


I was a bit skeptical at first booking this excursion since it was my first time. Me and my family all booked it and behold as we disembarked the ship we see a woman with the Resortforaday sign and were relieved. We waited for our driver about 15 minutes then we arrived about 20-25 minutes later at Santa Barbara. It was breathtaking from the moment we arrived until we left. We checked in quickly, got bracelets and told where all the facilities were. The food and drinks were delicious. The beach and pools were amazing. I will definitely go through Resort for a day for my future excursions while I’m cruising. The tour should be minimum 6 hours. - GD, November 29, 2019
