    About Breezes Curacao Resort, Spa and Casino

    Breezes Curacao Resort, Spa and Casino is the first super-inclusive resort in the Southern Caribbean. This beautiful resort is located in the tropics on the island of Curacao. Curacao is just 12 degrees north of the Equator and has a warm, sunny climate year round. African culture beats like the rhythm of a proud and festive heart throughout the island of Curacao. Although the island is a mix of nationalities, African descendents make up the majority. The Afro-Curacaoan people have established rich cultural traditions that have been embraced by both natives and visitors alike. African influence can also be seen in the language of Papiamentu, now the keystone of Curacao communication. There are other areas of culture impacted as well, such as food, religion and spirituality. These African traditions, introduced in the late 1600s, continue to influence Curacao to this day.

    The Breezes resort comes to life with its own 1,500 feet of private, white sandy beach and crystal clear waters. Guests enjoy wonderful accommodations, all imaginable water sports, and a variety of dining options ranging from Japanese cuisine at Munasan to the never-ending Jimmy's Buffet. Of course, like all Breezes resorts, everything is included in the price and tipping is not allowed.
