We stayed at Scuba Lodge for 5 nights. On our last 4 days, a lockdown was imposed - this still allowed the restaurant/bar to remain open for hotel guests. Also the pool could be used without restrictions. The staff really went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay during the lockdown! We (as well as the other guests) each received a complimentary upgrade to better room categories (since the hotel was not fully booked). We moved from our double room with kitchen to a beautiful and large suite (living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, large balcony with ocean view). The suite made the round-the-clock stay at the hotel gorgeous and it felt like pure relaxation instead of lockdown. But also for a "normal" stay, the simple double rooms are highly recommended - pretty, simple and everything needed is there. Even without a private balcony, the hotel offers enough places to make yourself comfortable in the beautiful, associated garden. The food in the restaurant was very tasty and varied. In addition to the pool, there is a very small beach section, from which you can get into the sea (over stones, recommended with shoes) - here you can snorkel. A diving school is also there, but we could not try due to the lockdown. The staff is super polite, good-humored, attentive and very helpful. Especially one employee at the reception makes the impression that she likes nothing better than her job and makes you from the first minute in the best mood and vacation mood! The hotel is in a great location. Many sights can be reached on foot. Overall, a hotel where price-performance ratio absolutely fit and which would have deserved more than the three stars.

We stayed in the Ocean view room with fantastic seaview and a big balcony where we enjoyed our breakfast every morning with the sound & view of the ocean. Nice ocean view restaurant and pool. A big thanks to Dalies for her great service and the biggest smile. Nothing was too much trouble to help with all our requests. Great location in Pietermaai close to many nice restaurants and the city. Hotel rooms are split over different iconic Curaçao houses which makes it unique and cozy. We look forward to coming back!

Scuba Lodge is a big property in the center of Willemstad, more exactly in the party area of Pietermaai. They have multiple buildings with gorgeous spacious apartments, equipped with all you need and with a great view on both sides,whether you have one facing the ocean, or the colourful buildings on the other side. They also have two pools areas where you can relax, one with a great view to the ocean and a more peaceful one that has also some shadow from the palm trees. My favourite place from Scuba Lodge was their little beach terrace with vintage furniture, palm trees, bougainvillea and dim lights. That place is magical and if you ever go to Curaçao, you most definitely have to stay there and enjoy one of their Sunday’s barbeque parties. The atmosphere is amazing!

Our family of three absolutely loved our stay at Scuba Lodge. We had a spacious 2-bedroom apartment with a big terrace overlooking the sea. Every morning we'd sit out on the terrace to have breakfast while watching the huge waves tumbling beneath our feet. After a day of exploring, we would return for a swim in the infinity pool (which we often had all to ourselves) and watch sunset. The pool was an excellent spot for catching the epic sunsets of Curacao. We also slept very well here -- I loved being lulled to sleep by the sound of the crashing waves. We also really enjoyed eating at the restaurant at Scuba Lodge -- there was always an endless flow of people coming in to eat, whether at breakfast, lunch or dinner time. The breakfast box was amazing, with generous portions of yogurt, granola, eggs, and bread. Dinner at the restaurant during sunset was even more amazing -- the food was excellent (though pricey) and the ambiance was lively. Another thing that we loved about Scuba Lodge was its location. It's located in the colorful, hip Pietermaai district, within walking distance from beautiful architecture and great restaurants. The popular Nieuwestraat is nearby and the heart of Willemstad is just a 10-min walk away. We felt like we had everything we needed surrounding us. All in all, I highly recommend the Scuba Lodge to families and couples who want to be in the heart of Curacao and right next to the sea.
