Lovely place with very helpful young dutch staff. The restuarant is very surprising...dont be fooled by the small facilities, the chef puts out a lovely meal. The diving operation is good...we went to snake bay (no snakes) and had a great dive led by Dan....also a young dutch guy. We stayed in a std room which had aircom and fan.... More

Scuba Lodge is more a small-scale hotel that also facilitates diving instead of a stay-over for divers which the name may suggest. The attitude is still what you expect of a divers stay-over: laid back and welcome feeling. The staff is easy approachable, friendly and well trained. The hotel is well maintained, which is on Curacao a continuous job due... More

We spent 8 nights at Scuba Lodge during our first visit to Curacao for diving. I guess we should have learned the definition of "boutique hotel" before booking because we expected a bit more. The bad - the room was small by American standards and lighting was sparse. Shower only in a small bathroom, and only a small sink area... More

I stayed with my mother for three nights at room 2, our room was ok (noticed they just have one room with an ocean view) with a complete and clean bathroom. I needed a different mattress or a little bed or a pad because I had a back ache but they told me that nothing else was available so I... More

You don't have to be a scuba diver to stay here. I was there for my honeymoon and boy was it romantic. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and I wasn't expecting to eat there almost every day. Great location, great view. I only wish the pool was heated.

We stayed in hotel room 15. This was the only room with an "ocean view". It actually had two large side windows that you could look out of to see the ocean. It was also nice because it was at the last room on the second floor and had a small table and 2 chairs right outside the door. I... More

For just one night i was able to stay in Curacao last june. Thanks to tripadvisor i chose for the scuba lodge. At the airport a friendly taxi driver was already waiting. At the reception an even more friendly employer welcomed me. Unfortunatly the room i booked was not available but a better apartment was provided. I realy enjoyed that... More

When we got to our room late since our flight did not land until 8:00, the air conditioner did not seem to cool so well. We gave it a chance to cool off which never happened over night. The next morning, after coming right over to look at the problem, she immediately saw it was clearly not cool in the... More

I enjoyed my stay here but I don't understand how this place has such high ratings. I can appreciate that they have probably built this place out of decrepit buildings which is admirable and the location is very convenient to town as well. But they have a bit of work to do if you ask me. First of all, our... More

We booked an Arke (Dutch travel company), package after reading reviews of this place. We were sadly dissapointed. Don't get me wrong it's not bad, but it's nowhere near as good as some of the reviewers seem to think. The rooms in the lodge part are very basic. Adequate but no more. I cannot comment on the suites as I... More

Thanks for taking your time to write a review, we really appreciate it. I am really sorry your stay was not what you expected it to be. We do really understand that you didn’t like the reconstruction of the pool area during your stay. Sometimes we need to take some time to improve certain areas to create more comfort for... More
