Comments Just returned from Habitat Curacao and Easy Divers operation. This was our second time at this location and it is only better than the first. The dive operation could not be better. They treat you like a certified diver. Boats were excellent condition, with great staff - available to help you if you would like. Divemasters were good guides and allowed you to stop and look at stuff if you wanted while they continued. We had some beginner divers on the same boat. We didn't have to stay with them and could dive our own profile if we liked as long as we were prepared to get back on the boat at the alloted time. With the visibility at 80-120+ we had no problem staying within visible range of the group, yet we had the freedom to dive whatever safe profile you wanted.

Their shore diving set up could not be better or easier with their 24/7 approach. Well equipped dive shop, great staff, never had a 'light fill' on a tank. The easy access steps were great for us old timers.

The accommodation was good the first year but recent small improvements seem to be adding ammenities to the room comfort. Food and bar was good. the Bar-b-que and pizza nights were great value and fantastic food. We had a plan that included buffet breakfast and it was always ready in time as noted with enough time to still get to the boat for the morning 2 tank dives.

Great service from the hotel, nice people every where. Definately a quiet place to go if you like diving and resting around the pool.

Coral was as healthy as I have seen in the carribean. Saw several patches of new staghorn coral growth in several dive locations so here is hopeing that it is on the return at not only this island.
