Comments Been diving Curacao every three months for the past year and half.....the shore diving is GREAT.....the resort has been steadily going downhill.....our last visit in November we found conditions down right DANGEROUS......Broken tile steps.....sagging docks......alage on rails and steps making entry and exit slippery. Lockers in poor condition, the majority of them broken....
Guest rooms are being renovated....but still in poor condition, air conditioning not working "most of the time".
Restaurant was once good.....now you can expect to order a item and another item is substituted.....example crab, shrimp and fish platter......no crab, when asked where the crab was the response was "we never have crab"...the charge did not reflect the absence of crab.............
Management (both Hotel and Restaurant) does not seen to care........the steps were broken on our visit in July and still broken in November......
It was once a wonderful resort....would love to see it as it was.......
Shore diving is still great....great home reef.
