Excellent service-staff is very friendly. Dalies and CJ are excellent workers at d reception. Highly recommended for divers who wants to dive, tour n relax. D divemasters in Ocean Encounters are very good-especially Danko.

This was our second stay at the Lions Dive and our third trip to Curacao. The Lions Dive is a good location if you want to stay at an ocean front hotel in Curacao but still be close to Wilemstaad. Generally we had a very nice stay. The rooms were clean and the view was terrific. The staff was nice and we had some great meals at both on site restaurants. They do play music until later into the night and it is definitely a family resort so there are a fair number of children. They are still doing more construction (this time next to the hotel) which is good for the economy but not so great for guests trying to relax. The new pool looks great and the hotel has been kept up very well.

The only thing that was disappointing was the quality of the water and reef. It was clear that the man-made reef had trapped years of swimming residue which had polluted the water. On our first stay approximately 4 years ago the water was nearly clear but this time I could not see anything until I left the blockade. There was a thick layer of sunscreen residue on top of the water. It still looked pretty from a distance but up close the damage was clear.

The beach and water bothered me so much that we decided to go visit other beaches in the area. That's a great thing about this resort - it's close to a lot of stuff yet you don't need to leave if you don't want to.

We stayed at Lions DIve for 5 nights. We arrived on a Sunday and were happy to find a Cuban band at Hemingway that night, and a huge dance party with a live band down the beach at Mambo's, The rest of the nights were very quiet however, which is its own sort of nice. We loved the beach, the Mohitos at Hemingway are the best, and dinner at Nemo's was excellent all three times we ate there. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we will be going back again with our kids next year.

Room Tip: We chose the ocean view, and would definitely do so again. The sunsets are fantastic.

A mixture of local and tourist people, verygood music (live band), many dancing, bar should have more bartenders it can be quit crowdet, and you can sit quietly to , surroundings are surpurb, the band stops at 2200 for not to dustrurb the people in the appartments, the following DJ slows down for the rest of the night... I had a great evening !

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!
