Travellers' Choice
The Scubalodge is the premier ocean front boutique hotel in Curacao. Made of in total 5 monumental buildings, every room and apartment are different! And so is the staff! With a very relaxed and personal atmosphere guests are like staying with friends! Relax in one of the two swimming pools, in the ocean in our house riff and enjoy a cocktail at the Ocean Bar. Scubalodge has a PADI Dive School and shop and the well known breakfast basket and weekly barbecue! Laid in the "quartier Latin" of Curacao, many restaurants and bars are walking distance, as is the city centre, the cruise terminal and all musea and shopping center. Explore the real Curacao in Otrabanda, the "pontjes brug" and the fruit and local market. Or take your rental car and explore the Island and all of its 70 beaches!!! Scubalodge, welcome!

Scuba Lodge is my kinda hotel! Botique, unique atmosphere, friendly staff, family vibe, not corporate, great views, close to resturants & culture life of Pietermaai. Not too busy or crowded. Good resturant (new reno/De Hereen is much better than old resturant!), nice infinity pool and city "beach". I was lucky enough to "Work from Home" in Curacao and I made Scuba my home for 2 months. Very comfortable, staff took great care of me and offered support. Some complications arise but that comes from life on an island. This is NOT the place for folks who like HOTELS, meaning hotels that are all matchy matchy like a Marriott. This is for folks who want to experance a more local feel. These are old mansions that have been renovated. It is a great starting point for adventures in Curacao. Easy drive to Mambo beach, walk to Avila, or use the city beach if you can bave the waves & rocks for close beach access. Hop in a car to expore the best beaches on the west end (you have to do this for just about any hotel anyway). Best resturants are within walking distance and you can walk to Punda or Otrobanda. I have stayed here a few times and will do it again.

Thank you so much for your kind words and the 5-star rating you have given us! We are honored that you have stayed with us several times before and we can't wait to welcome you again. We're proud of our historic buildings that were built in the 1800s and have been renovated without losing their historical feel and original features. Did you know that over the years our buildings have been used as residential homes, office space, a brothel, and eventually a boutique hotel? If only these walls could talk! At Scuba Lodge, heritage and hospitality go hand in hand and we're happy to know that you have enjoyed our unique and authentic atmosphere. We like that you have pointed out our location! Our guests have often mentioned that our hotel is the perfect base to discover the best of Curaçao. We're right next to the ocean (we even have our own little and somewhat rocky beach) and are just a short walk away from touristic attractions such as the Queen Emma Bridge (pontoon bridge), Plasa Bieu (Old Market), and De Handelskade. Please know that you're always welcome, whether you're looking to "work from home" or simply want to vacation!

The hotel itself it’s nice and the view from the restaurant is pretty good. But don’t go there if you expect to enjoy some fresh air or some privacy. The rooms are located one after the other with a common walkway where you could basically see inside every room. On top of it you don’t have windows but you can just slightly open the blinds on the door (from which people can look inside your room).The light inside the room are very dark and so all together it gives you a sense of claustrophobia while being at the seaside you should enjoy the fresh air and light. Not recommended.

Thank you for staying with us, and for sharing your feedback with us and fellow Tripadvisor users. We are glad to read that you enjoyed our hotel and the ocean views from our restaurant and public areas. But we are disappointed to read some of your other comments. Several of our standard rooms are indeed located next to each other, with a shared, large balcony offering a variety of seating arrangements that make it easy to socially distance yourself from other guests. But we also have standard rooms located on the ground floor (that are facing the garden pool, and have a small private porch) and standard rooms that are located on the ground and first floor of the adjacent, pink building. We would have welcomed the opportunity to rectify the problems you had in your room while you were staying with us. Due to the pandemic, we were not fully booked and we would have offered you a different room if you turned to the reception with this request. Did you know that we have 4 different room types, ranging from standard rooms to superior deluxe ocean view rooms? If you prefer more space, privacy, or comfort, we can ensure you that you would have had a better experience in one of our other room types. Our most luxurious rooms have a private balcony facing the ocean, letting in lots of fresh air and natural light. We also have 11 spacious apartments with one, two, or even three air-conditioned bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, and private balconies and/or porches available. We hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you on another occasion and would be so grateful if you could advise us of your arrival dates once you have booked and we will ensure that you have a lovely room!

We stayed here for a week and everything was perfect! The amazing staff. The convenient location, 10min walk to the famous ponton bridge and plasa bieu. We had a beautiful spacious room with modern fully equipped kitchen. A Squeaky clean room everyday we returned to our curaçao home after a day of sightseeing and scuba diving! It’s super convenient to have in-house scuba diving facilities! Not to forget the amazing infinity pool to view the sunset with your loved ones. Thank you Dalis & Daan for making our holiday super special. We hope to come back again😁👍🏻danki

We had to cancel our trip a few times because of covid-19. They did everything to adjust to our changes in our plans. Finally we had to ask for a refund (of a non-refundable rate). We will do everything to, one day, go there. Their integrity and honesty is very valued. Good luck Raymond

We stayed in scubalodge for 12 days. The lodges are verry big and verry nice. You feel the history of the building in every room. The infinity pool has a beatiful view. Everything is superb and the hostes and staff is so friendly and helpfull. We were treated like kings and queens. This is the best place to stay on curacao!!
