The hotel is in a very nice area and the pool has a great view. However the standard room is a bit disappointing because the view is on buildings and above the nearby dive centre. The staff are welcoming. For the quality of the room I would expect to pay less. If you can afford it, I would recommend the rooms with terrace overlooking the sea.

Hi Emma,

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your stay with us. We are glad to know that you enjoyed our infinity pool and our location next to the ocean and within walking distance to many of Willemstad's must-sees.

We have four different room types ranging from our basic yet comfortable Standard Rooms to our luxurious Superior Deluxe Ocean View Rooms. I am sorry to read that you were a bit disappointed in your room. Had we know this before, we could have maybe accommodate a room move for you.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience with us.

Minuses

When we arrived we were given the wrong room..thank goodness it was quickly resolved . After 12 hours of travel it's not what you want. We dealt with Hotels.com,
So not sure what happened.

The King bed is actually two twin beds pushed together with a topper on top. We didn't realized it until I fell through.

The outlets are not American current so we had issues until that evening when we finally got adaptors.

Overall we were very happy with our stay.

The staff makes the place great!

Hi EaglesMom,

We are very thankful that you shared your kind review with us and other travelers.

It makes us happy to know that you enjoyed almost all of our services during your stay, and that our location in our lively neighborhood and next to the ocean fit your taste! We are just a short walk from many restaurants, cafes and downtown Willemstad so ideally located if you are looking for a base to discover the best of Curaçao!

We're proud to know that our staff were able to make your stay pleasant and memorable and that you enjoyed your room. We will make sure to pass on your compliments to the rest of the team.

We truly hope, despite this small discomfort with the outlets, that you will choose us again for your next trip to Curaçao!

This place is amazing. Some friends and I stayed here on a dive vacation. We had arranged everything via email and the responses were fast and made everything very simple. They even arranged for a rental car to be delivered at a specific time so we could dive around the island. Every single staff member had a smile on their face and was super friendly - you couldn't walk by without them greeting you and asking how your day/dive was.

We had booked individual hotel rooms, but a week before our arrival, they emailed asking if we would like to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. Of course we accepted and it was perfect. My single complaint about our lodging was that the wifi did not reach into the apartment and we had to sit on our beautiful deck overlooking the ocean to use the free wifi (I know, poor us).

Everything at the front desk went so smoothly, it didn't require a thought. They were so friendly, we were almost making up excuses to go talk to them!

The restaurant was great - right on the beach with the waves literally crashing over the wall right in front of you. The food was quite tasty, though it did take a while to get served. Make a reservation for dinner though - it seemed like it was a local favorite too so the tables do fill up. Even breakfast took over an hour from sitting down to getting out. This is a bit long when you're trying to get out to go diving. Because of the length of time it took, we only ate at the hotel one morning and then started stopping at mini-markets for breakfast on the way to the different dive sites. Perhaps a "diver's menu" could be put out that would allow people to eat quick and go.

I want to specifically mention that the chef took the time to prepare some fresh lion fish I had speared that day.

We did not spend any time at either of the pools, but the infinity pool looked like an amazing place to relax.

The dive shop was also awesome, but I'll leave a more detailed review under their page.

We stayed at the Scuba Lodge for the second time now and just like last time we really had a great time. The location of the hotel directly at the ocean is just perfect, the whole staff is extraordinary helpful and friendly, problems are solved easily and without complications, the food is delicious and rich in variety (we especially enjoyed the Indonesian satay!), the place is overall clean and tidy, the rooms are comfortable and the views from the ocean restaurant and the infinity pool are spectacular. So for us there's sure no better place to stay in Curacao and we will definitely come back again!

The fact that you booked your 2nd stay with us is one of the biggest compliments we can possibly receive and we are really grateful that you shared your experiences here on TripAdvisor!

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed our location next to the ocean, our friendly and helpful staff, and the food in our restaurant. We're proud to know that we were, once again, able to meet your expectations. It is great to read that you also enjoyed the Indonesian satay which our guest chef Ronald Añes prepares every Sunday between 4-7pm at the lounge next to our restaurant. We'll pass on your compliments to Ronald!

We were guests for five days and we went to Curaçao to dive, so had a lot of diving stuff with us! Always had to hang something in the bathroom so it would dry.
Reception was always great with us. They look happy to serve and solve our problems. And we did have some issues during our stay: a car noising the alarm during the night, the ar conditioning leaking and almost flood the entire room, and we left our cel phone charger in the room after checkout. Although problems happened, reception was always supportive and everything was solved and we were very happy with the solution. Loved the ocean view in the restaurant, food was delicious (best red snapper we had in the whole island), great to have towels clean and soft that we could change every day if we want!

We did have a wonderful stay at this lovely hotel!
