I spent six days there with my wife. We had just been in quite a busy days in Florida and this place was a little getaway after all that. We spent days in nice and breezy infinity pool and ate on premises most of the time. Town center is within walking distance and absolutely beautiful beach-club, Saint Tropez next door. Surroundings in town side are pretty rough but it seems like there are beautiful places behind the rustic fronts. Staff has tried to create relaxing and beach-like environment and they have succeeded well. All staff are super friendly and breakfasts are very good even if they are a bit pricy. Few more things to do like board games and stuff would be great. However, if you are into diving or planning to try.. this is a five star place to you.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

We had been looking forward to our stay for months and the Scuba Lodge delivered, big time!

We stayed in the President suite which was a 3 bedroom/3 bath apartment (Yellow Building). This apartment is flawless. Top modern kitchen/living room and bedrooms. We even had a washing machine, which came in handy.

We loved hanging out in the big patio overlooking the gardens and the ocean. This will be your favorite spot.

If I would give any feedback to the hotel it would be installing an AC in the living room/kitchen (Ac is only provided in the bedrooms).

If you are looking for a big impersonal hotel, this is not for you. This is however a 5-star experience for anyone looking for: unique location, personal attention, home-like comfort, and great food (and drinks, of course). All rooms are cosy, though we spend little time in there. Why should you when the courtyard is literally sitting on the ocean. The villas are superb and very reasonably priced. The Scuba Lodge staff is so friendly that it is more like you are staying with friends. For those who like to dive, and there are many, the dive instructors and divemasters are outstanding in the provision of personal attention and care. And the food is some of the best on the island, with very accommodating chef and managers who go out of their way to make the customer happy. This place is just great and we are definitely coming back.

I and my friends had a great holiday stay in ScubaLodge. Curacao itself is an oasis of Europe in the Caribbean. ScubaLodge staff members were very easygoing and helped us a lot. Once we returned back from town late night and guy from the evening staff gave our room key to the security guard, who recognised us in the darkness, was very polite and friendly and passed us our room key. Breakfasts were delicious and not pricey. Dinner menu list is not long, but very convenient - something for everybody. Pietermaai is a nice colourful area, very relaxed though. Just a 10 minute walk from Punda and Otrabanda. We would definitely stay again here, when in Curacao.

Learn some dutch, before going there - everybody will be happy to hear you trying to speak it

Room Tip: If possible, choose and book the ocean side lodge rooms close to the ocean terrace pool. Amazing vie...

Arrived at Scuba Lodge late at night because of a cancelled flight, after having spent a week's holiday at Avila Beach. Were looking for a place to stay and our daughter had heard that SL was a nice spot. The staff was very welcoming and offered us their last beds, which were situated in one of their apartments. It was a pity we hadn't found out about this treasure before we booked our holiday to Curacao, otherwise we would definitely have chosen to stay there.
As I said earlier the people working there are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home, offer great service and think pro-actively. Our dinner was delicious, a hamburger freshly grilled on the BBQ on the beach. Breakfast is a treat, served in a picknick basket.
I'd recommend this place anytime!

Stayed for a week in a two bedroom/bath apt. on top floor of the green building - huge. Wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean. Can't say enough about the staff - amazing group of young people who know the island well and go out of there way to help you. Great bar and restaurant. Walking distance to town. Love this place!!!

Room Tip: Spend a little bit more and get an apartment - great privacy views.
