The staff, the room, the amenities, spectacular! We will go back. And cant wait to do so.The food from their resturant was unforgettable. The pool along the sea was so great!!!! In walking distance to shopping, resturants, (but why would you) and bars, (again why would you).

Wife and I stayed two nights, Christmas 2019 at Scuba Lodge. Very nice hotel just a 10 minute walk from the downtown riverfront which made it the best location. Very friendly and helpful staff assisted us with anything we needed. They have a restaurant and bar in the back with an ocean view that had amazing service. Excellent place to stay and I will be returning again in the future.

Room tip: Choose the ocean view rooms if you can.

We LOVED the Scuba Lodge. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment (yellow building) over Christmas.
It was perfect in every way. The staff at the Scuba Lodge are amazing. So kind and go above and beyond for you.
We did not want to leave and will definitely be returning here.

We enjoyed the hotel a lot: friendly staff, wonderful food, a very nice terrace at the seaside for breakfast etc. We had the Chobolobo room downstairs with a small kitchenette (2 induction plates) and a private back terrace. That terrace was a bit disappointing because it was not really private and it was not very cozy. Besides that, the pipe of the kitchen air exhaust is next to this room and makes some (not very loud) noise from 7 o' clock till 10 in the evening. The room itself, the beds and bathroom are excellent. Cleaning is done daily with new towels etc.

Unfortunately, the infinity pool was closed (announcement came only that morning) for maintenance a few days before we left and there was no compensation. Only by accident we found out it was possible to swim at St. Tropez next door. That was not communicated to the guests unfortunately. The 2nd pool was a good alternative as it was never crowded.

We went to a lof of different smaller beaches to snorkel and swim. Especially Director's Bay still has beautiful coral and Tug Boat is absolutely wonderful because of the loads and loads of different fish.

So, all in all: we would most definitely recommend Scuba Lodge if you like a smaller, homely hotel in Willemstad within reach of the sea.

Special thanks to all employees: you are doing a fantastic job!

Room tip: The rooms at the sea/pool side at the back are more quiet. Coffee cups for the machine in your room cost almost $ 1 at the reception desk.

We stayed at the Scuba from December 1-8. There was a change in management on December 1, and there was definitely lots of progress throughout the week. For the first few days, restaurant/bar staff appeared to be confused and nervous, and there were ongoing issues with the new system that was implemented. By the end of the week, all staff were smiling and providing great service, and the system issues were ironed out - it was great to experience.

Our room was good. It was a standard room on the second floor, not fancy - but clean, with a very comfortable king size bed and a good shower. We reported that our air conditioning was not working very well, and it was fixed that same day.

Food options were excellent in the area. There are many restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance. We chose to eat at the Scuba a couple of times, and it was quite good. Unfortunately we missed the Sunday satay night, which we heard was excellent. The Scuba also has happy hour every day from 4-5, and it is 5-6 next door - we definitely took advantage of that! Lots of local bars to choose from as well, with several within a 5-minute walk.

Regarding activities, we found lots to keep us interested during the week. It's easy and inexpensive to take local transportation to a beach. We chose Mambo beach, and had a good day - and there are many other good options. Walking to the city is easy, so we explored alot on foot. For planned excursions, we did an island tour, and also a tour of Hato caves and the ostrich farm - we enjoyed them both. When we wanted some R&R, the pool at the Scuba was a great, relaxing option.

This was the first time down south for us that wasn't an all-inclusive, and we really enjoyed our week. We would definitely consider going back to the Scuba. Kevin and Yoka, all the best to you, and we are definitely looking forward to seeing the results of your planned improvements!
