Comments This was our second time to Habitat and by far it is one of the best kept resorts for divers. The rooms are comfortable with a large veranda to hang out after dives, and dry gear. There is a frig, stove, pots/pans, and utencils. I would recommend getting a second floor ocean front room. you can leave your french doors open all night and enjoy the sounds and breezes coming from the ocean. Ants can be a problem, keep all food put away. They provide each room with a can of bug spray. The restuarant is open at 6:00am with a good variety for breakfast. Standard fair for lunch and supper. We stopped at the grocery store in Curacao before getting to the resort, loaded up on fruit, cheese and deli meats; and ate lunch on our veranda. Went into town and ate several times.
The diving - Two boat dives a day. The DM were helpful especially Tuki! He knew where to find the little stuff. Seahorses, Arrow crabs, Flamingo Tounges. Every dive was great. Boats were on time and well maintained. We were with a large group so most of the time we had the entire boat to ourselves. I would recommend Curacao and the Habitat highly.
