Wonderful view and location

  • 5 of 5

1st impression was WOW! The view is overwhelming & the outdoor living space is a wonderful bonus. We spent most of our daylight hours down at Jan Thiel Beach but did enjoy several sunsets right from our balcony. Overall, the area right around our apartment was quiet and peaceful, but towards the end of our stay, a couple large groups moved into neighboring apartments and that's when we discovered just how badly sound echoes throughout that complex. lt didn't ruin the week, but the tranquility was gone.

The neighborhood is very clean, quiet and safe. We walked at night several times with no issues. This is a gated community with a security booth at the only entrance. Once the guards know you, they don't require you to show your pass card, but it is nice to know they are so diligent.

Walking down to the beach area was easy, though hilly. Snorkeling at the beach was very nice, & the loungers at KoKo's at the far end were the most comfortable. You do have to pay for those loungers but the servers will bring you food & drinks & run a tab for the day.

Our only complaints about the apartment are minor but still items that I want to mention:

* The coffee maker is a senseo, requiring single serve pods and makes the weakest coffee EVER. Had I known about the coffee situation, I may have brought my own pods, but brought ground beans and had to make due with using filters to make pods, which meant weak coffee. Blech!

2) The apartment was only stocked with 2 rolls of toilet paper for the two of us for the week, meaning we had to buy toilet paper. Also no kleenex or paper towels in the apartment. We arrived with full-blown colds and would've killed for kleenex! Had to go buy that & paper towels too.

I know these are small items, but every other condo we've EVER rented was stocked with at least 1 roll of paper towels and some spare rolls of toilet paper, & the ability to have it restocked if needed. That was not really an option, because apparently any restocking for trash bags or toilet paper comes out of the deposit...seriously! Small things like that can make or break a decision to return to a place. The ice maker was not working properly, which staff was aware of. We had to chip frost and ice from the front of the ice maker several times to be able to close the freezer completely.

Overall, a lovely vacation, we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, Thanks for your great review and tips. I will take care of situation of toiletpaper and binliners to put some extra rolls at the start of the holiday. About refill of this articles and facial tissues we have to let you know that we don't have hotel facilities and also not "hotel pricing" . We will think about the situation with our manager if we have to improve on this point. We never had this complaint before. Best regards and hope to see you ever again at MaBoJo Peter

Found my heaven

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this fabulous first time trip to Curacao. Customer service seems to be Peter"s (owner) priority, as he was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. Also Luisa the on site manager was such a dear. She had a small load of groceries waiting in the fridge upon our arrival:)

The apartment itself, WOW! It's gorgeous with the huge deck overlooking the ocean, where we spent a lot of time watching ships pass by. It is so quiet at this end of the resort, perfect for relaxing. This is a very high end gated resort community, with all the amenities (beaches ,restaurants, grocery store, casino) only five minute walk away.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone! We sure did not want to leave:( Peter can we come back NOW??

A note to fellow Canadians: exchange your money at the airport because there is only one bank branch that will exchange CAN $s (MCB bank). Oddly enough RBC branches there wont exchange our money. Whaaaat....right??

Marvelous place for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We say thanks for the opportunity to book Majobo for our short stay, as we only were there for the Marco Borsato show. This place is great and we had a terrific time. Also thanks to Luisa, she is kind and pleasant. We shall surely recommend Mabojo to others. Although it would have also been nice if there was a microwave or toaster oven at the appartment. Overall thumbs up.

Marvelous place for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We went to Curacao especially for the Marco Borsato show and stayed at Mabojo - Boca Gentil. We would highly recommend Mabojo. It is just the place to be. The service from beginning (booking) till the end was fantastic. Compliments to Peter. Last but not least, also to Luisa, she is very nice and pleasant. We really really enjoyed our short stay. It was like 'Heaven'. Although it would have also been nice to have a microwave or toaster oven at the appartment.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lucil for your review. Assume the show of Marco was great and we are a bit jealous, while we are also big fans. Thanks for your tip for microwave, in july we will organize one when we are there. Toaster and oven we have in the kitchen. Hope to see you again at MaBoJo.
