Dead? Maybe peacefully quiet. Diving ?

Just starting a new post. You might wait for weeks or months for additional posts on Bonaire, or San Salvador Bahamas but it doesn't mean anything...other than it's not Jamaica or Punta Cana.

That said, we also are looking at Breezes, this Spring, and are looking for comments from divers who have been there. Good boats? Dive team? Sites? Overall impression?

Thank you for the future imput. We've only been there once for a day of snorkeling, but our friend won $50. at the Casino before we left. That and the blue and orange liquor bottles we took back.

Willemstad, Curacao

well the Sunset Waters and the Lions Hotel are very different hotels. So they both cater to different people. But ofcourse, if you're not very picky, then you'll like both.

But I'd say Lions Dive is very Dutch oriented, while Sunset waters is more American.

Sunset waters(SW) is an all inclusive hotel and has a casual and natural feel to it. The hotel is very quiet and eco-friendly. diving is good there and they have their own dive boat aswell. The ocean view rooms have breath taking views and at night you can even hear the ocean from your room! in adition you are also close to all the other great beaches of the west side of the island (Banda 'bou). You need to rent a car to get around the island though.

The Lions Dive (LD) is located in the more developed area. It's about in the middle of 3 hotels, Royal resort Sea Aquarium, Kontiki Hotel(sp?) and Breezes. The difference between the LD and the SW is that the LD is a tipical 4 star hotel on a long beach. So if you want be be able to go to a restaurant that is not on the premises, go to town often, or like some nightlive, the LD is a better choice for you. Although i havent stayed at this hotel, i've heard nice things about it.

sorry i didnt know much about the Lions Dive, but I hope this was still a bit helpful to you. Hope you have a great time wherever you decide to go!
