Scuba Lodge & Suites
Ranked #2 of 32 Hotels in Willemstad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2011

The room was tiny (also due to the baby bed for our daughter) and basic. The pool is very small. The lodges are located close to the neighbouring hotel which means you don't get a view unless you have the one room that's above the bar. Breakfast was basic but nice. At night there are security guards outside in this area (october 2010). Pietermaai Smal is an upcoming area with some nice restaurants.
We stayed at Scuba Lodge for the diving which was a little disappointing (Bonaire is much nicer). The 'house reef' means climbing down some rocks which is tricky with the surf.

A large group of us stayed at Scuba Lodge for a wedding taking place in Curacao. Each part of the experience from booking to checkout was seamless and stress free. The staff are all intelligent and fun; the rooms impeccably cleaned daily by wonderful ladies; and the location in Curacao idyllic.

I can't think of a better place to stay on the island.

Really enjoyed our time at Scubalodge - amazingly laid back place with very friendly young Dutch guys and girls running the show. Room on top floor had lovely ocean view, very clean and well appointed. House reef left or right from the steps was awesome - nice diving! Staff were very helpful and fun. Highly recommended for divers - not sure what others do when they go to Curacao! Nice restaurants nearby and walkable. Breakfast on the terrace really good. Lovely BBQ - get Tom to do more cooking!

My husband and I stayed at The Scuba Lodge for one night and really enjoyed it.
It is like staying with friends. Rooms are spacious and decorated nicely. Staff is very friendly.
The Scuba Lodge is located right on the water and in town, what makes it so unique.
When you're in your room, you can still hear the sound of the waves.
There's a good selection of restaurants and shops close by at walking distance.
It's a great stay for families and business people as well!

This is a cute small inn in Curacao that is run by a handful of young adults from Holland. Rooms are basic and cute, very clean and have a few extra touches that are nice. Room breakdown: safe (not quite laptop size), mini-fridge, nice private front porch, AC controlled in room, nice comfy beds. The grounds are lush with plants, albeit casually tended to and great pool. You can walk right into the ocean with 2 nice reefs to the left and right. The extras included a very tastey BBQ, a cute bar where a cold beer or cup of coffee could be ordered up as well as a light snack. Yummy breakfast baskets were convenient for us. Cons: small-ish bathrooms but workable, friendliness of staff is great but for english speaker you may feel a bit left out and not sure if you are interrupting or catching an actual break in the conversation and construction all around the lodge. Big Pros: nice Dive Shop on site, house reef, sitting at the bar / eating breakfast and enjoying the ocean right there, very clean rooms, yummy and unexpected BBQ, friendliness of Lodge Staff.
