The Scubalodge is the premier ocean front boutique hotel in Curacao. Made of in total 5 monumental buildings, every room and apartment are different! And so is the staff! With a very relaxed and personal atmosphere guests are like staying with friends! Relax in one of the two swimming pools, in the ocean in our house riff and enjoy a cocktail at the Ocean Bar. Scubalodge has a PADI Dive School and shop and the well known breakfast basket and weekly barbecue! Laid in the "quartier Latin" of Curacao, many restaurants and bars are walking distance, as is the city centre, the cruise terminal and all musea and shopping center. Explore the real Curacao in Otrabanda, the "pontjes brug" and the fruit and local market. Or take your rental car and explore the Island and all of its 70 beaches!!! Scubalodge, welcome!

We stayed in the most beautiful room (Suite with Ocean View, worth every cent!) for a week and had a fantastic time. The whole staff (reception, restaurant, cleaning ladies, dive shop) is super sweet and helpful. Speaking of the restaurant: words can’t even express how delicious the food is! We ate ourselves through the menu during that week - you absolutely have to try the Rib eye Burger, the chocolate lava cake and the BBQ (every Thursday night). If you fancy some drinks you can head to the bar or walk just a few steps to City Beach 88 and enjoy a bucket of beer (must try: the delicious pizza and their gelato!) with some music! The Scuba Lodge is perfectly located to explore the island‘s beauty. It was super easy to rent a car, the ladies at the reception organized everything

Thank you for your amazing 5-star review and sharing your experience with other TripAdvisor users! We're happy to read that you enjoyed your visit to Curaçao and your stay at Scuba Lodge. Our oceanfront restaurant is open daily from 7:30 AM till late in the evening but there are many other restaurants within walking distance if you want to try other places as well (such as the pizza at City Beach 88 indeed!). We work together with InMotion Car Rental who bring their rental cars to Scuba Lodge and can pick them up here as well. We hope to see you again someday!

Scuba lodge is located in the central pietermaai district. The area itself is run down in places, but the hotel is quite lovely and clean. It was our first time in an boutique hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The restaurant offered great food (although food prices on the island were on the pricey side). The dive shop offered a one of a kind trip which was well priced. Just be aware that it is very expensive to cab anywhere on the island, but you can take the city bus which was very easy for $2 to go to Mambo beach. Mambo beach has more of a touristy feel. City beach is right next door, and has good pizza, but again, pricey drinks. We didn't always feel comfortable swimming here due to the strong rip tide. Our room faced

Mats, Daan, Remy, JP, all great. I can speak mostly to Mats and Daan, as they were my instructors (and the best in Curacao). Also Ilsa and the help at the reception desk couldn't have been better. Perfect! The bar/restaurant was overpriced, especially since when we ate and drank there, we were never greeted with a smile or hello. Not a good experience. After 4 times, we took our business elsewhere in town.

My friend Pati and I just spent a fun 1 ½ weeks in Curacao staying at, diving with, and renting a car through Scuba Lodge. Thank you Lodge representatives Eugennia and Gea for answering my avalanche of questions so quickly, completely, professionally. Thank you, too, for arranging rides to/from the airport; both drivers were excellent. The Lodge facilities were beautiful, but, unfortunately, we didn’t get to enjoy them as much as we might have liked, maybe next time! We are divers and so were out early and back late most days. However, we relaxed our final full day, and the ocean view from the pool and restaurant was stunning. And we loved the room. After a long day of driving and diving, it was so comfortable to return to our freshly cleaned, air conditioned room with a firm

As a summary I would say it was a good stay for almost two weeks but with som flaws bringing the grade down. Our room was not that high up on the scale but it was okay. A good bed, a fridge, coffee maker and a safe. What we needed. The toilet was not that fresh with paint coming of the wall. Cleaning was really good but way to early. No chance of getting to sleep in if we wanted our room cleaned. Almost like they cleaned the room in order of numbers, not who had checked out first. After a while we could talk to the cleaners and they came later even if we had the no cleaning sign so we wouldn’t wake up to early. The hotel has a lot of divers that go on day trips. So for us we always got a pool seat. The seats are few but the most comfortable I’ve met world wide. Sea side
