The standard electrical outlets in Curaçao typically supply 110-130 Volts at 50Hz. However, it's important to note that our hotel predominantly uses 220V outlets, which require the standard European plug. Before your trip, we recommend checking if your devices are designed to operate at both 110V and 220V to ensure compatibility.
While we do provide plug adaptors for your convenience, we recommend bringing your own if you already have one. This will help you easily connect your devices to our outlets without any hassle. We want to ensure that you have a seamless and enjoyable stay, so feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns regarding electrical requirements.
Curaçao's standard outlets provide 110-130V at 50Hz, with a two-pin 'Type A' plug, similar to those used in the United States. However, our hotel primarily has 220V European outlets. Please check if your devices support both voltages. We have plug adaptors available, but bringing your own is recommended. Any questions? Just ask!

No worries, our sunny weather is a daily delight! Unlike other Caribbean islands that face heavy rainfall during certain months, we're fortunate to enjoy consistent sunshine year-round.

Whether you're here for diving or snorkeling, you'll be treated to excellent visibility no matter the season. Plus, being outside the hurricane belt means our vibrant marine life remains unaffected by seasonal changes. So get ready to soak up the sun and explore our pristine waters without any weather worries!
