Our first trip to Curacao and while we are not divers, we wanted something out of the way and relaxing with great snorkeling. Lagoon Ocean Resort is located in West Punt, on the far west end of Curacao. About 30 minutes from capitol Willemsted and the airport. One of the Dutch Antillies Island (Aruba, Curacao & Bon Air) Curacao seems to be more lush and less arid than Aruba. We hear from travelers that Bon Air is the best. Lagoon Ocean Resort is located on a natural Lagoon that provides close snorkeling and scuba diving fun (just down the steps from the units). Lots of fish easy to see just a few feet out so even a dog-paddler like myself saw tons of beautiful fish, urchins, coral and schools of fish. The units are one, two, three or studio and they overlook the lagoon and the ocean. While we are very happy with our studio apt. The idea of sitting on my balcony and watching the sunset over the ocean is very appealing. Other than a noisy dog across the road, very quiet. Peter & Tia operate the Baha Resort, bar & restaurant next door and have management responsibilities for the Lagoon Ocean Resort. They were very helpful and it is evident the staff works hard to keep the resort clean, friendly and fun. We rented studio apartment 7-C from owner Mark Downey. Mark was equally helpful and stayed in touch with us from deposit through departure day. I get the impression that all the unit owners are committed to keeping the place excellent. The pool is always clean and surroundings/huts/chairs in good order. Across the inlet is Lagun Blau Resort. Looks similar but not the same quality. We ate out (see my reviews of restaurants) and cooked-in. The fish and vegetable market in Willamsted is wonderful and easy to negotiate with the Venezuelan peddlers who bring their wares to Curacao via boat, tie up downtown and sell off the side or in markets. We would highly recommend the Lagoon Ocean Resort as a peaceful, natural get-away. A rental car is an absolute necessity if you plan on seeing the island. Tomorrow we are hiking Christoffel Park and will have a review of that experience.
