My husband and I spent a week in this condo. I loved staying at Marazul Dive Resort. It was quiet, clean, safe. The grounds are attractive. I loved the pool, which was attractive and very well maintained. The caretaker was easy to find and helpful. People were friendly. The view is lovely and we got to see lots of attractive birds and iguanas on the property. It's easy to get to and there's lots of beaches, snorkeling and diving very close by.
The condo itself is perfect for a couple. It has a pull out sofa (which is comfortable to sit on) but I think it would be too crowded for 2 couples. 1 or 2 children would probably be fine. It was clean and well equipped. I personally loved the location by the pool. We used the washing machine for 1 load and that was useful to have.
We only used the AC in the bedroom at night for sleeping. We did most of our cooking at the condo, but with the breezy conditions, it didn't get too hot with all the louvres and screen doors providing good air circulation. I heard that there's little wind in August and September, so perhaps the AC on the ground floor would be needed then.
We shopped at Centrum twice, which does have bags (even though we brought our own, so don't panic if you forgot shopping bags). We also bought fresh tuna one afternoon at 2 beaches north of MDR, which fed us for 3 meals, as we had to buy a minimum amount.
For non snorkeling activities, we visited the 2 national parks, which are super close and were nice to see. Also very close was Tula Museum. We hiked up Christoffel Mountain. We visited Hato caves, the flamingos and before coming to MDR we spent 2 nights in Willemsted, also worth a visit. Willemsted could easily be done as a day trip from the condo as it's less than a 40 minute drive away.
Communication with the owners was easy and they are helpful. I would highly recommend this condo for those looking for a quiet place in an excellent location, and who are self sufficient (this is a condo after all, not a hotel).
