My husband, 14 year old boy and myself stayed at Marazul for 10 nights. It is on Westpunt far away from everything. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back. The location is perfect if you are a diver or snorkeler and if that is really all you want to do. If.
you are looking for nightlife,
shopping, restaurants, etc. Then this is not the place for you. The
apartment we stayed at, E2, was
perfect for the three of us. The
complex has a pool, internet, a pool
and access to the water by stairs
by the cliff face. There is no sandy
beach but there are many beautiful
ones nearby. If you stay there you
do need to rent a car. The main grocery store is in willemstadt, about 30 minutes away. No convenience stores within walking distance. Also, get Skype and use it as your phone, a lot cheaper than cells or global phones. The place is very peaceful, virtually empty during the week, lots of families during the weekend. As for the electric, it is prepaid, so you have a limited amount. If you are gone during the day or just leave the windows and sliding door you will probably be okay. Truth is we are kind of spoiled so we needed to get an extra 180 kWh. Tommy, the property keeper, is very nice and will take care of you. He does not have an office on site, but you can contact him through e-mail or by phone. If you need extra electricity, don't wait until you are running low since Tommy has to go to the town of Barber to buy electricity, call when you are down to 60 or 70 kWh. In the 1 bedroom apartments you are allowed 20kwh but we used about 30 per day, again that was us, others may find the 20kwh allowance more than enough. Make sure you buy paper towels, toilet paper, plastic trash bags, soap, laundry detergent (there is a washing machine on the premises, and a line for drying clothes) enough for you own use and some for the next guests. There is a mid week clean up for stays longer than a week, so make sure you hang up your towels after using, there is no daily maid service. There are not many restaurants around so we cooked most of our meals. The place is heaven for divers and snorkelers. We would definitely go back.
