Living”stone” It Up in Curacao

Livingstone Resort Curacao

Athena and I have inspected every aspect of Livingstone Jan Thiel Resort in Curacao and the verdict is in – this place rocks! From the over-sized room and the enclosed patio to the luxurious pool and the luscious surroundings, the Livingstone is family-accommodations at their best.

This four-star resort is centrally located in the Jan Thiel Bay with over 100 beautiful villas and apartments. Our villa is equipped with a full kitchen and a separate living area, air conditioning in the bedroom, and a spacious veranda. It’s surrounded by a tropical garden and offers privacy in all directions. Athena’s favorite aspect of the villa is the closed off veranda. I could easily leave the door open and she could play outside without being able to venture off on her own. We played on the veranda during the day and in the evening. The refreshing breeze was exactly what we needed after a relaxing swim. I love the separate living area. When Athena went to sleep in the evenings, I could watch television or write without disturbing her. We both reveled in the massive king bed and even managed to sleep in yesterday morning. The entire villa was a breath of fresh air.

Tropical flowers and plants filled the resort and created a sense of serenity and privacy. As we strolled around the gardens and side streets, it was like stepping into a simpler time where the only worry was when should we go for a swim.

From the moment Athena opens her eyes until she falls asleep at night, she is dreaming about swimming in the pool. She might say “pool” 200 times a day. Needless to say, the Olympic size swimming pool was used often during our stay.

Additional services offered at Livingstone include: a baby sitter service, car rentals, internet, a mini market, laundry, housekeeping, a bar and restaurant, and a beach and facilities. While I didn’t need the baby sitting service this trip, it’s definitely a great service to have in my knowledge base for next time. I did make excellent use of the internet, as you can see, and I ate regularly in the restaurant. With a full kitchen in the villa and a supermarket across the street, your options are not limited.

Our stay at Livingstone Jan Thiel Resort was an unforgettable experience. It was pure relaxation with an obvious focus on comfort, service, and relaxation. What a perfect introduction to a surreal country filled with endless beauty.

  1. Looks fab. I love having a villa or flat when we travel with kids. Makes life/napping/eating/living so much easier for the fam. Glad you have a great time.


  2. What an amazing place!! I love the idea of having a four star resort that is perfect for families. My nieces and nephews would love the pool and having a place to write or relax while they sleep would be perfect for my extended family. Lovely work, once again.


  3. Nice digs, I’ve been to Curacao once before, but on a cruise, so I didn’t get to see much of the island. It looks like it’s a bit remote, but I suppose with all the amenities there you don’t really need to go anywhere else!


    • I worried about traveling alone with Athena but with lots of planning and a little more down time, we’ve been making it work well for both of us. We do activities for me and activities for Athena, but most things make us both very happy 🙂
