“If you are going for the diving you have to consider this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We try to dive Curacao once a year and the best diving is on the west end. The east end of the island is the city of Willemstad which is where the airport, big hotels and cruise ships dock. So if you need it big and busy stay in Willemstad. But.....if you want to get out of the city and spend some time relaxing and diving then consider All West. It is built right on the ocean and all apartments, studios have decks or balconies with a stunning view. All West also has a large breezy tank room to gear up and take the stairs down to the beach for shore dive. Or, get a package that includes a rental car or truck and take off for one of the many great shore dives on Curacao. All West is one of the closest lodging options to Go West Divers and it is real easy to create a package that includes lodging, boat and shore diving. The rooms at All West are simple and great. The WiFI is secured with a password. There is no TV there so be prepared to eat, sleep, dive and dive again. All the restaurants nearby are locally owned and great. We usually go into town to the supermarket and buy what groceries we will need and then have dinner at Sol Food or Landhuis Misje, both just minutes away. But you will need a car and All West can fashion a great lodging, diving, transportation package. But is not just a great package that keeps us coming back, it is Louis the owner and his staff. He is available to his guests 24/7 and has demonstrated this to us on several occasions. He takes care of his property and his guests. He even came and gave us a wonderful local bread on Christmas morning. When was the last time the owner of your other hotels did that?
So we will keep coming back, not just to Curacao, but to All West Apartments and Go West Diving.

We stayed for 6 weeks at All West and everyday was a perfect day. Coming to All West since 2007 we never got disapointed, it's getting even better every year.
Everything fits perfect for our holidays, the rooms, the car, the beach, the housereef, the people...

Just perfect.

Room Tip: Appartment A has a perfect view

Location is perfect if you want to dive a lot or explore the side of the island with nature. Dive setup is great. Definitely rent a car and go shore diving all around the area (although the reef in front of the hotel and the reef in front of the dive shop are probably the best on the island). You don't really need to do any boat diving, except for Watamula and maybe one or two other locations. The view from the balcony is AMAZING - sunset over the ocean!

The apartment is fine, not luxury, but fully stocked if you want to cook (buy food on your way in!). There are a few decent restaurants nearby, but not enough to go to every day without getting a little bored.

On the downside, the futon in our junior apartment was not comfortable to sleep on, and you have to pay extra if you want the apartment cleaned (would be nice to get in cleaned once in the middle of a one week stay). We had a clocked drain, but someone came up immediately to deal with it.

Also, almost no bugs! (At least in August).

We just got back from a 10 day stay at All West. Alex picked us up at the airport at 9:30 pm on Saturday. We asked about groceries and he took us to a store so we could get a few things for the morning. The store was closed, but Alex knew the owners and they were still there at the store, so they opened up for us.
The set up in the apartment is perfect! We stayed in a jr. apartment which had a bedroom, sitting room with a futon, full kitchen and bathroom. You also get a car or truck to get around the island which is a must! You have to drive to get groceries and get to the dive shop at Go West for boat dives. All of the apartments have a beautiful view of the ocean with a balcony perfect for watching sunsets. The house reef was spectacular and we did many dives there. Go West Diving is great for the boat dives and everyone there was very friendly and accommodating. The reef outside of Go West is also terrific. If you are going to Curacao for diving, I would highly recommend All West! The only things I would suggest for All West:
1. Put a microwave in the kitchen
2. Put an outlet in the bathroom
3. Put a clock in the bedroom (so you can set an alarm to be up in time to get to the dive shop for the boat dives!)
4. Offer a regular cleaning service. You can't stay in a beachfront apartment for 10 days and not get cleaning! I would think every 3-4 days, at least offer to mop the floors and clean the bathroom. We had to find someone to ask for fresh towels and toilet paper. We found a broom, mop and bucket on the balcony, so we cleaned the floors ourselves.
Also, the beds are twin beds in the jr apartments and studios, so you have to ask to have the beds strapped together and remade with full sized sheets. I had requested this before we arrived, but we had to spend 2 nights with the beds pushed together before we found someone to ask about strapping the beds.
I like the fact there is no TV, but they have free wifi.

The restaurants I would recommend are Sol Food, (Sunshine, the owner, is from New Hampshire and is fun to chat with!) Landhuis Misje, and Kura Hulanda. We also had a good experience at Jaanchies, but it seems that it is hit or miss there. Don't go to El Rancho Sobrino!

This was our 2nd stay at All West.. I loved sitting out on the patio and watching the ocean. One day dolphins played all day in the bay, what a treat. We had a one bedroom on the ground floor and it was quite nice. They did forget to turn on the hot water, but my husband figured it out. I do wish they had maid service one day a week, that would be nice. We were here on a scuba diving trip, I would recommend renting a truck from All West. The weather was hot! Loved our stay!

What a place! We were picked at the Airport by Alex. He told us everything we needed to know about the island and the apartments. We stayed at the unit F. Top floor 2 bedroom apartment with huge bathroom (jacuzzi and shower). Our package included a pick up truck which was awesome. Very comfortable for our family of 4 + child. Everything about this place is great:
-huge apartment with fully equipped kitchen,
-fantastic house reef, Little Alice,
-gear room, where you can pick up your tanks, rinse and dry the gear. The staff is really nice and helpful. You barely notice anyone is there. We felt at home. We will come back one day.
