    I am just trying to get advice for our first trip. How far is the walk to everything from Curaco rooms. Where would be the best tower to stay. We have all liquor included, Breakfast and lunches, 100.00 dinner credit (didnt want to be tied down to the Radisson). Looking to relax during the day and some nightlife.

    We never ate dinner at the Radisson so can not comment. There is just too many nice places---all within walking distance from the hotel.

    Gilligans was very good for lunch for the days we decided to sleep in and forgo lunch. (that is where we spent our 100.00 credits)


    A few times we took a bus or took a cab to go elsewhere

    Is there really a bad tower at the radisson. It is all walkable.

    WOW- how did you get all that stuff? Free alcohol drinks?? Im impressed.

    here is our view from the Curaco towers- top floor- even side.
    the odd side will be the garden view.

    Hey cjrohrer21! Don't worry about the distance 'to everything'! The walk from the Curaco tower is nothing for my 60 YO+ legs.... I've never had to pack a lunch! It's about 2.5 minutes to the lobby and 2 minutes to the pool area! It's also closest to the parking lot and Laguna and not far from the casino! Take the link below to take the satellite view of the Radisson Resort..... the green roof at the bottom of the Radisson Resort is the Curaco tower! We alson book with Player's Choice this year... hope they are OK! My match play coupons don't look like too official! Now it's my time to recommend to you the Sunset Grille for a fabulous dining experience!

    My Mom stayed at the Radisson a little less than 6 months after having hip replacement surgery.

    She balked at first about having a room in the Curacao Tower, but, like Serene, seeing the view she had for paying for a standard room, she was thrilled. The walk to the beach was a bit more for her but she just took her time.

    The other bonus was being close to the parking lot and having Bully the taxi driver pick her up there to take her to dinner and not have to walk all the way to the main lobby in the Aruba tower.

    The Radisson is now offering choices on meal plans, including day "all inclusive"

    They are extremely reputable and we have always found them to have the best pricing on the Radisson (and Westin as well).

    Arubalisa, That's good to hear about Player's Choice! They were a very good deal! We got 200 drink credits, spa credit of 25, some other stuff, breakfast buffet each day and 100 match play coupons. Did you get match play and were the coupons OK? Mine seem a bit flimsy.... Thanks!

    Arubalisa,
    I just spoke to the Radisson who said the Curaco will be going under going "refreshment" and will be unavailable when we go in September. They said maybe I'll be in the main building, should I push for the Bonaire?
