3 events going on at the Kura Hulanda properties in the following week:

Wine tasting at Astrolab in collaboration with the Wine Factory.
Time: 7-11 pm

German couple Heinrich and Steffi’s wedding is taking place on the premises of the Hotel, the ceremony starts at
5 PM,
followed by a cocktail reception and dinner for their 35 guests at
7 PM
(let’s assume you have their permission to use pictures for social media purposes)

: BBQ on the Beach, starts at
4:30 pm

What status updates would you post on the various social media platforms over this week?

1) Determine which platform you would place the update on (ex. Facebook, Twitter etc.).

2) Fill in as many updates as you think are optimal (there is no minimum or maximum amount).

3) Will you include photos? Indicate which updates will include images and describe (shortly) of what the image would be.

"The Kura Hulanda Hotel is a charming property in downtown Willemstad, the location is very central and the architecture is just lovely. We were welcomed warmly at the reception upon arrival, the staff was very helpful and friendly – so was everyone we met on the island! Our room was huge, with two queen sized beds, a beautiful open bathroom with a stand-alone tub/shower, floor to ceiling French doors/windows throughout, a TV, safety deposit box, hairdryer, plenty of closet space, bathrobes, large towels, and so on. We explored both Punda and Otrobanda by foot and used their shuttle service to travel to the Lodge on the west side of the island to go snorkeling at their private beach. The next time we visit Curacao we’ll definitely combine our stay with a couple of nights there as well, such a unique hotel experience!"
What is your response to this review?
We had a very disappointing stay at the Kura Hulanda Lodge, from the terrible service in the restaurants to the moldy rooms that don’t get thoroughly cleaned or even look like they have gotten a lick of paint in years. Aside from the service in the restaurant being slow every time we went for breakfast there we were required to clear our own dishes from the table before sitting down. It took forever to get what we ordered and we had to ask for everything multiple times before getting served. This is definitely not what I would expect from a location listed as one of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” – Kura Hulanda and Curacao will NOT be seeing us again.
What is your response to this review?

Dear sir/madam,We will be arriving on Sunday April 28th and staying at your hotel for 1 week. We would like to book a group appointment for manicures, pedicures and massages for 5 people at your spa on Monday April 29th. We are flexible with regards to the time of the appointment, as long as it takes place before 4 PM as we will all be heading to an event that evening. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best regards, Helena
