Comments I am frankly bewildered by recent negative comments by others. I found Habitat Curacao staff to be uniformly competent, accommodating, and friendly. E-mails with questions to dive shop operator (Anna Marie) prior to trip were answered promptly and thoroughly. Staff in restaurant were prompt and friendly with service, even though the resort was very busy during our stay, including at least 2 big groups that sat together at every meal. Even staff doing pool and landscape maintenance said hello. We arrived late at night; desk clerk helped us with our luggage to second floor. The dive briefings were thorough; the only restriction was back on the boat with 500 lbs. psi. Shore diving was excellent. Rooms were clean, well-maintained. Ask for a second-floor room to get BIG balcony and breezes. We had planned to eat out of the resort, but found meals at the restaurant to be fresh, prompt, well-prepared, and varied. We'll go back.
