This was a great trip to Sunset Waters Beach Resort and Sunset Divers on
Curacao for our group of 19. The group has been making at least one trip
every year for the past 15 years and all agreed that this was among the
better and relaxing overall trips. Sunset Waters Beach Resort and Sunset
Divers combined to make it so. From picking us up at the Curacao Airport,
through the housekeeping and dining room staff and the dive operation,
service was excellent, personal and generally consistent. The resort's
General Manager, Jim Hunter, is a hands on and available manager that does
everything possible to please his guests. The accomodations were very nice;
rooms right on the water with balconies. They are in the process of
replacing the air conditioning system and that will take care of the modest
need for additional capacity. When maintenance problems did arise, as they
will, they were resolved instantly. The pool and pool bar was very popular
in late afternoons. Food was varied, and with a very few exceptions, well
prepared and nicely presented; several great buffets with the balance being
individual menu service. All beverages, including standard alcohol brands,
were included and the wait staff was always prompt and pleasent. The resort
provides free shuttle service into town. Now to the diving: we had use of
their largest dive boat (Day Dreamer) and it was very roomy, had two
boarding ladders and was quite stable and fast. Typical trip to a dive site
was 10 to 15 minutes. There was always one divemaster in the water and very
often, two. We saw very little in the way of "big stuff" but the
small fish were very plentiful in variety and quantity.  We saw spotted
eagle rays on two occasions, the biggest lobsters and morays that any of us
had ever seen (no exageration!!), a large black seahorse and on the house
reef, a frog fish. Great dive sites included Mushroom Forest, Black Coral
Garden, Sponge Forest, Hell's Hole, Lost Anchor and Porta Marie. The house
reef was quite good and easily accessible. Unlimited shore diving was truly
available and worthwhile. Although we generally try to go to new places
every year we will not hesitate to return to Sunset Waters and Sunset
