The staff were wonderful, the apartment perfect and only steps from the sand! We enjoyed the pool and Dive City bar and pizza . The scuba staff were knowledgeable and friendly & my husband and daughter had great experiences on their dives. If you want a centrally located hotel where you don’t have to get a car but you want to dive this is your spot ! Can’t wait to go back !!

The hotel is great! Location is very good, walking distance from the town and in the middle of the island (so good access to north and south). Delis gave us an amazing warm reception and always helped us with our questions. The rooms are good, clean and modern. The hotel is a nice old style colourful house. Nice sunset view from the pool

Based on a previous review, we booked the Habaai Room. While it is indeed private, the privacy did not alleviate the other problems we experienced with the room. The furniture is sparse, old, dirty and uncomfortable. The balcony/porch consists of a huge table for 6 and unusable filthy furniture. The apartment has gorgeous dark hardwood floors - but unfortunately whoever painted the ceiling failed to put down a drop cloth and there are splatters of white paint all over the floors and the furniture. Really? The kitchen is nicely appointed (although no toaster), and the bathrooms are nice with plentiful storage. In order to access this room, you must go up 2 flights of steep, winding staircases. Since you are not offered help with your luggage, it is challenging, to say the least. If you have balance or spatial issues, this is not the room for you. One of the bathrooms smelled like a sewer and the smell permeated everywhere. When I mentioned this to the front desk, although they seemed aghast, nothing was ever done about it. Aside from room issues, Scuba Lodge nails it. It is a 10 minute walk to Willemstaad and within walking distance to many wonderful restaurants. The on site restaurant is also quite nice and the staff is lovely. The pool is small and can get quite crowded. There is another pool but it does not face the sea. The picture you see on their website of a couple beachside on lounge chairs beside the restaurant is misleading. City Beach next door has dozens of lounge chairs lined up so close they are touching. That said, I never saw it very busy. City Beach restaurant is a gem with amazing pizza. I would definitely return to Scuba Lodge, but would request a different room.

I have to agree with you our pizza is amazing and I am glad to hear you will come back to Scuba Lodge. I would even dare you to book our Habaai Room again. I am well aware of the painter who ruined the beautiful floor in this apartment, but I have good news. Our new sanding machine just arrived on island and with travel being down due to COVID-19 we have plenty of time to get this room back in shape. We'll be ready for your return, promised! PS: if you book directly there is free pizza upon arrival!

We transferred to Scuba Lodge from Floris because Floris was a gross misrepresentation of what they show on their website. Scuba Lodge is absolutely great! The hotel consists of 5 restored buildings dating to the 1800s or so. The room was very comfortable, mixing old and modern, and the balcony overlooking town was a great touch. The staff at Scuba Lodge is very helpful and friendly too. The hotel has a nice grotto pool that is quiet and shaded, next to the bar area is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. The lodge is located within walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants, no need for a cab. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Curaçao!

It’s a nice place to stay in. Location is good as it’s nearby the bustling area. It’s also close to great restaurants. I would say that it has one of the best views during sunsets. You can never go wrong with this place because the staff members are friendly and multilingual; the rooms are clean and comfortable. Their restaurant is also good! I highly recommend this place.
