I have used four other hotels/accomodations in the past and this hotel is overall the best one on the island.
Nice rooms but do not accept a room on the first floor (a friend had his laptop taken on the first day by someone who entered the room by shaking the door so the security pin fell out). Safe in the room must be used to safe guard your lap top etc. Portofino rest. was excellent, beach bar for lunch was boring after a few days with a limited menu, go the Deli in the lobby for a nice selection. Breakfast was a low point, waffles felt like a hockey puck, oat meal like cream of wheat, cornbeef was mush. Needs improvement. Hotel did a great job with mosquitoe abatement fogging daily. Excellent staff, very helpful.
Diving is ok but no where near the experince etc of Habitat. We did mostly beach dives on the West end where the diving is great. Check out Alice in Wonderland, Playa Lugun, Jerimi and Varsenbai.
As a seasoned diver I am not sure I will return to any of these Dutch islands because of the Holloway disappearance. Locals think these things happen anywhere, next time, I will spend my time and money in Mexico or Costa Rica.
