Lions Dive & Beach Resort Curacao
Ranked #4 of 32 Hotels in Willemstad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 November 2012

We stayed at the Lions Dive Resort because it was the official lodging and sponsor of the Amstel Curacao road race. One of the guys in our party actually entered the race so staying here was a no-brainer. What we got was fantastic. Race convenience aside, the snorkeling right off the beach was awesome. Going on the outside of the rocks was best (with plenty of cut-throughs to get back to the more serene--but less clear--lagoon). With several restaurants to choose from and well-appointed rooms that were meticulously kept clean (even the sand!), the Lions Dive was a great choice. We rented a car while on the island but the Resort offers a free shuttle to Willemstad (a must visit). Easy access to any point on the island from Lions Dive, the snorkeling, several pools, including an olympic lap pool, and the many food and beverage options (reviewed elsewhere) make this Resort a wonderful choice.

Located on a great stretch of beach with a sheltered bay for swimming. Great food at Hemmingways beach bar + Mambo, the 2 on site restaurants. Book a sea view room. Great beach snack bar next door. Free shuttle service to Willemstad is very handy. Beautiful gardens and entire hotel is so clean. Very child friendly with a shallow kids pool.

The view from the main restaurant is absolutely spectacular. You are basically dining in the ocean. This hotel was it he preferred hotel of the Queen of England, and is definitely worth visiting.

20 minutes from the airport with no traffic!

Curacao was my first stop for 6 days and followed by a stay for 6 days in Bonaire. The staff in the hotel was super and offered a lot of help without asking. They also gave direction for visitis in Willemstad and beyond. The restaurants gave the possibility of different options : snacks at the Hemingway-bar or great fishdishes at the Nemo. The service "and" the food at the Nemo was excellent. The breakfast was really very good as a buffet with a great display of different sorts of food. The beach was clean, more then enough sunbeds and daily fresh beachtowels. The rooms were super, clean and realy cool.

We've been to Lions Dive for 10 days and enjoyed it to the max, although we were exploring the island most of the days we did enjoy our stay on the beach and beach bar Hemingway and its friendly bartenders. The beach is clean, the sunbeds are comfortable, the water is very nice. The water is clear and just fine if you want to hang around the resort, have fun on the beach and snorkel a bit. For some amazing snorkeling I'd go to different beaches/bays like Director's Bay, Porto Marie. From Lions Dive's beach you can walk to the beaches of the other resorts in the area. We had a lot of fun at Hemingway at night and enjoyed Los Compadres, the Cuban salsa band that plays on Sunday nights twice (I wish we could've enjoyed it all more but our vacation ended hehe). We had breakfast and dinner at Hemingway once or twice and didn't really like the dinner menu. Felt very Dutch and most of the things were fried.

The room was clean and fine. The shower curtain was a bit dirty. We had our room cleaned and fresh towels every day. The people at the reception are very friendly. The entire resort is able to use the free WiFi-service, although it's a bit glitchy you are still able to check some e-mail or surf the web a bit. If you'd like steady internet, you'll have to pay.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room away from the reception. It tends to be a bit noisy in the early mornings w...

Fine snorkeling right at the hotel... which is what I look for. Just on the far side of the rocky breakwater that protects the beach. The water was clear, except after there was a lot of action on the beach. The underwater scene was free of garbage. The snorkeling did not really compare to the excellence of my daytrip to little curaco, but for twice a day and ease of access, i was not disappointed.
Friendly Bar.
As a strict vegetarian (vegan) there was not much on offer at the hotel, a good mango salad at the hotel across the channel from the beach, a decent chinese meal at a classic joint inland, a good thai meal, and an excellent indian restaurant downtown. The Indian restaurant, Tandoori Heights had enough variety and tastiness that I could have eaten there multiple times :) tho as other reviews have mentioned, service was slow (but good).

We stayed @ Lions Dive's Apartments (sleeps 6 pax), enough room, comfortable, ground floor, right in front of the pool, kids loved it. The rooms are spacious and modern, clean and up to date. Pool restaurant was very expensive and the food was regular. We did some grocery shopping and had everything inhouse for breakfast and lunch and in between snacks. We preferred to have dinner at different restaurants. Seaquarium is very close to the property but does not give free entrance anymore like it used to do (a disappointment for us, cause we counted on that). The rooms are Wi-Fi (very useful). All in all a very nice place to stay and relax. Make sure to have sprays for bugs (because of the gardens there are lots of bugs in the morning hours and evening hours).

Room Tip: ground floor gives access to anywhere in no time.
