“Small hotel with very friendly personal service”
Reviewed September 14, 2009

We stayed in this small family run hotel for a week. The hotel has a very laid back Dutch atmosphere (The majority of the staff is Dutch). Don't come here for amazing looking rooms, pools or sandy beaches. Come here for very friendly personal staff (with lots of knowledge of the island), cheap diving (it's in the name) and very good local restaurants in the vicinity (the staff can direct you). Ideal if you want to explore the island, dive and enjoy Willemstad and it's excellend local restaurants

The hotel is located in the Pietermaai, near Punda. The area is a little run down, but a lot of development takes place and it is suppose to become the new "latin quarter" of Willemstad. It's small (about 20 rooms) and it has diving written all over it. The hotel has a very small beach and a pool, but if you're interested in beach, either go to a resort or hire a car and visit one of Curacao's beaches. Pietermaai also has a large number of good restaurants away from the main area. It's where the locals eat...

Scuba lodge is ideal for diving. It's owned by former dive instructors and although it doesn't run an active dive school or operation, diving is easily sorted. The hotel has a lot of equipment and you can dive every day at very reasonable prices (incl. gear). You often just dive in little groups and all dives are shore dives. You decide where you want to dive.

We had a great time at Scuba lodge. The pool and beach where a bit of a disappointment, but the great service and excellent diving more than made up for it!
