My week at All West Apartments was one for the books.
My husband and I and two children (5 and 13) spent a week and it was just wonderful.
The apartment had all your basic necessities for cooking i.e pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, utencils etc...
The stairs leading down to the beach really aren't a big deal, once down there you can just go snorkeling with the sea turtles off the shore or walk out and go shore diving.
There are great restaurants around and plenty of markets for food and drinks.
The rooms are clean and welcoming,and all the rooms beautiful ocean view.
I reccomend this location for families and divers.
And finally, you will never see a more beautiful sunset.

We couldn't agree more about the sunset! Just when you think you have seen THE BEST ONE EVER...the next night seems to top that one. There is something special added to the scene I think by the small, colorful fishing boats in the mix. We're so glad your family enjoyed their stay and shared your thoughts with others! Thank you.

My Wife, her sister and husband and I stayed at the All West Apartments and dived at Go West Diving for 10 days/9 days diving. Went in 2nd week of September. Weather was a bit warm but it never rained and winds were nice. Diving on the West end of Curacao was beautiful and less crowded than the busy East end of the island! The reefs were in good condition and the fish population was amazing to see. Any day we dived, we were the only ones diving. No crowds!!
We did morning dives the entire 9 days on the boat and several afternoon boat dives. Shore diving in the afternoons and several twilight/night dives from shore in front of All West Apartments. Reef goes down to about 90 feet. Lots to see along the reef and back towards shore there are always lots of turtles!
All West Apartments were definitely the best option in the area. The view from the apartments is beautiful and the sunsets are incredible!! Apartments were clean and everything was as advertised. Very nice to have a locked equipment room to clean and store or dive gear! We used the truck rental the entire stay and made a few trips back into Willemstad for groceries and to see the city. Prices in the stores are reasonable especially for being an island. Make sure you visit all the local small restaurants! Especially a little spot called Sol Food. David & Sunshine run a great little place right there in Sabana Westpunt near Go West Diving.
5 Stars! We’re definitely going back to All West Apartments!!

We have already been at All West 6 times - every year, before our trip, we think it might be for one last time and then we would go discover someplace else in the world. And each time we decide that's it's the best place to be and that we will return. The incredible views (the crystal clear turquoise ocean, the turtles, the amazing sunsets,...), the cozy and well-appointed apartments, the relaxing quiet and atmosphere, and of course the great diving right in front of the apartments are for us the perfect combination. And being greeted by Roxy with a "welcome home" is just lovely.
We will be back next year. And the year after that. And so on....

Room tip: we love the junior apartments on the first floor - great views, and a nice breeze!

We spent 8 nights at the All West Apartments on a Drive & Dive Package. Things we loved: lots of room in the apartment, basic kitchen cooking facilities, handy & secure tank/gear room, good size balcony overlooking water, great house reef (nice for night dives that the ocean side of the apartments are well lit), and it is just a short drive away from Go West Diving & another great reef. A few things 'not so good': wifi only good in bedroom but too weak in living/kitchen area, no microwave in kitchen, balcony roof not solid (on our particular unit) so would leak when raining, bed mattress was rather hard so I ended up having back problems that week.

We cooked our breakfasts & most lunches, but chose to go out for dinner most evenings. There are enough restaurants in the area that are a short drive away (just have to keep track of which ones are closed which evenings) and we found them all to be good. For food shopping we found it best to get your supplies in closer to Willemstad to have any selection. Even for a few items you have to drive a ways.

The reason for the lower rating is because i came close to cancelling the package because I couldn't get any feedback or invoice one week prior to arrival even though I had initiated the reservation a month and half before.

The context, I made an inquiry via their info@gowestdiving.com email and after an initial quick response and settling on a dive/stay package only, that's when the communication went downhill.

After filling and submitting their reservation form, there was still no confirmation after a week.

As it turned out, i had been routed to the European reservation person, when i called the US reservation desk to see where things were, Yvonne was really helpful, i got an update within an hour. Unfortunately, she informed me the reservation hadn't been processed yet and since it had gone through the European office, they couldn't assist me further but that I would get an update from them soon.

Just having to contact different offices every 2 weeks or so to get an invoice or confirmation on a reservation just doesn't seem like good customer service. And when it's a week from your arrival date and it's still not available, it can be a bit stressful.
Add to that some questions were left unanswered from two separate emails.
To be fair, both the US reservation desk and the dive shop were really nice and responsive even though they couldn't do anything, the communication problem was with the European office.

Apart from that, the studio itself was quite nice. It was clean, comfortable and as advertised, very convenient to get to the diveshop.
The terrace in the back is really big, ocean-front and cozy but since i was the last one on the block, the top of the outside wall had very visible barbwire which
made it less pleasing. The stairs from the terrace do give direct access to Grandi Beach which sees a lot of tourist coming to swim with the turtles but since it is also
where fishermen sell their fish, you do see quite a bit of fish carcass under the pier. And note that the neighbour keeps a dog outside that i could hear
barking every night so if you're a light sleeper, be warned.

My experience with the dive team at GoWest was much more successful, i wrote a separate review for that.
Lloys, Floris and the rest of the team run an efficient, relaxed and fun dive shop. I had a great time diving with them for 4 days.

Would i recommend this place? If you want a clean, comfortable apartment close to the dive-shop, sure, but avoid the European agent and just get a hold of the US reservation desk or go through the dive shop directly, you won't need to chase around as i did for followups.
