I always intend to write reviews when I return home and forget. But not this time! Scuba Lodge and Suites was one of the best parts of our trip to Curacao. Traveling with my best friend from college, we wanted to place to stay that was centrally located (so we could get to the action), but NOT your run-of-the-mill hotel- boring! We found all this and more at Scuba Lodge. We rented one of the renovated, modern apartments that from the outisde maintained it's classic Curacao charm, but had all the modern upgrades we've come to appreciate. It was luxurious, with amazing ocean views from our private deck, and an awesome infinity pool. The pictures were right on.
When we arrived, we were greeted by 3 handsome Dutch gentlemen (one being the owner) who said the first item of business was making us a complimentary cocktail of choice and enjoying the oceanfront bar. Nice! That was the best intro to this laid back boutique hotel. From there, the service never stoppped. We had the option of prepared breakfast basket we could enjoy there or in our apt. They provided us with maps, great places to eat and go out, shopping, etc. They have a full service dive shop and those handsome Dutch gentlemen are also the dive masters and are always excited and ready to take you diving anywhere. There is a house reef right out front which is really nice. One night during our stay, they organized a group dinner/cookout and it was a great chance to meet the other travelers at Scuba Lodge (and try to learn the Dutch language!) By the end of our stay, I felt like the staff and the other travelers were now a part of my extended family. I HIGHLY recommend Scuba Lodge and Suites for anyone looking to experience the essence of Curacao, have an awesome time, and make great connections. Singles, couples, groups of friends or family would enjoy this location.
Many thanks to Tom, Dan, Joshua and Yvette for such a great week! Can't wait to come back.
