Just back from 8 wonderful days at the Scuba Lodge and I am homesick for it! We were treated like loved family members by all staff - absolutely beautiful and kind people! The hotel is charming, quiet, casual, welcoming, relaxing - just amazing. Lots of beauty for your senses - landscaping, pools, flowers, birds, the Caribbean sea, sound of the...

I stayed there two times, four nights in total - location of the hotel is excellent - very close to Punda, by the sea. Local restaurant serves very good food. I am travelling a lot and so far this is the place with the friendliest staff I have ever met!

The Scuba Lodge is the perfect place to stay in Curaçao. The hotel itself is comprised of adjacent buildings directly on the water. The rooms are very clean and modern. The hotel is a short walk to downtown (floating bridge, cafes, museums & shopping) in one direction and the gorgeous Avila beach is a short walk the other way. The...

The hotel is small which means that staff will know you and knows what you like. The service and attention is great and the staff is very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal.

We stayed 8 nights in Curacao and first 4 nights at Scuba Lodge. You can´t go wrong with this beautiful, small boutique hotel! It is difficult to explain it, but it just got it all: very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, good location, delicious food and the beautiful rooms!

We stayed at Scuba Lodge in early April 2017. The hotel was nice - we didn't stay at the hotel very often but we had breakfast in the morning and drinks at night most days. Very convenient - easy to walk to Punda / Otrobanda with great restaurants all around.

This was a nice hotel for the final night of our holiday. It’s about 10 mins walk out of the centre of Willemstad on the sea front in an area undergoing redevelopment (Pietermaai) – there are many similarly refurbished buildings along the road in the same “Dutch Caribbean” style – all painted in different colours – all very photogenic. Very...

Excellent location, 20mins from the centre of Willemstad in the historic Pietermaai district. Lovely traditional buildings, and rooms are spacious and well appointed. If you can get a room on the ocean side, they'll be quieter and more relaxing. But if you end up with a road facing room, the traffic noise from the plentiful boy racers and dustbin carts...
