Super diving!  Morning trips of less than 30 minutes brought us to a
variety of sites every day.  The reef is as healthy as anyplace else I've
seen.  Curacao's strength is its rich and interesting coral and sponge
formations -- Mushroom Forest is unbelievable!  Lots of small critters. 
Very little in the way of big fish or pelagics.  Every afternoon we dove
the awesome house reef, although they do offer afternoon boat dives. 
Leisurely surface swim of about 80 yds to the reef which begins in 20' and
slopes steeply downward.  There's a resident octopus, turtle, two frogfish,
and lots of other life.  We dove it six times over four days; we saw no
reason to rent a car to do other shore dives.  The night dives on the house
reef were pleasant but a bit disappointing.  There was not much activity on
the reef and there was very little life under the dock.
Divers are given great freedom -- dive whenever, however, and with whomever
you want.  (For boat dives, bottom time is limited to one hour.)  This was
great for us, but beginning divers could have used more direction.  Dive
briefings were short and contained more jokes than information.  There was
very little explanation about the boat procedures.  A divemaster was on
every dive, but was always the last one in, and most did not point out very
much on the dive.  Crew put the tanks on the boat, but divers carried their
own gear, set up tanks, and switched tanks during the SI.  You could store
gear in a locker by the dive shop (bring a small padlock).  No Superior
Producer dives -- can't dive it when the cruise ships are in and it is too
far away.  Dive shop was well stocked and not expensive.
The resort was very attractive and the rooms were pleasant, if a bit small.
 We shared a Lanai with another couple -- two separate bedrooms and
bathrooms with a shared outdoor LR and kitchen.  Service was typically
Caribbean -- listening, nodding, apologies, but very little action. 
Internet/email access for $4 for 15 min.  Game room was not really
functional.  Great pool.  Overall, fairly quiet, despite its size.  Food
was great, with a nice variety.  Sandwiches and entrees from $7 to $23. 
Free shuttle into town, but if you go for dinner you have to take a cab
back -- about $40.
