We stayed at SWBR for 10 days last winter. If you read enough boards on the place, you will see there is a common comment about being a bit tired and the food is decent, just not outstanding. We found the place to be lovely and food satisfactory, but depending on your level of expectations, I could understand this common thread. To me, what makes the place outstanding is the staff, headed up by the manager, Jim Hunter. Suffice it to say, anyone there will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. If you have any special needs, or a quibble that is a concern, they will do whatever to help out. One guest had a medical problem while on island and Jim drove her once himself and arranged hotel transportation another time, gratis. We did an all inclusive and this is the way to go. The dive op (although run separately) and hotel will bundle a package. I had no problems with the dive op- some DM's more personable but again, they were always trying. Ditto on the comment about the rinse tanks- they say they are changed daily but some missing gear from our group turned up a couple of days later...in the bottom of the rinse tank "emptied daily". Other board posts comment about how they set up their nitrox tanks- possible dual function with air but with two or maybe three dives daily plus any shore diving (included at N/C with dive package or $10 if diving a la carte), there were few nitrox users while we were there, thus zero chance for confusion. The dive op claims by having this dual set up, they can cater to a higher demand for air or nitrox on any given day without owning excessive tanks... To me, it was a mute point since they had plenty of "air tanks" and enough nitrox tanks too, but I could see how this is a problem if there would be big influx of nitrox users- that number would just have to be most of the divers at any one time demanding nitrox. Again, a concern but a bit of a mute point... We dove Caso Abo, Harry's Hole,Santa Cruz, Lost Anchor, Pelican's Beach, Third Generation, Watamula, Mushroom Forest, Hell's something or other, Sponge Forest, Mako 2, the house reef, and Porta Maria. My top picks were Mushroom Forest ( a well known signature Curacao site), Watamula ( a $50 surcharge but worth it if you at all like corals), Porta Maria (a different dive profile than the usual ones found on Bonaire and Curacao- slanting wall starting at 30-50 ft down to 90). Other than my top picks, all sites were decent, just not outstanding (Cozumel is my standard for Caribbean diving)- lots of nice corals, small critters, and small marine life. My wife loved the house reef she could shore dive- well marked, easy entry, simple nice diving right in front of the hotel. Some hotel guests hired another dive op to take them to a wreck right in the harbor in town- they said it was most worthwhile but they might not allow diving there much longer because of the cruise ships. Ask if that is the case once you get there. We would go back and I strongly suggest that area of the island based on feedback from other tourists we met. I'd give SWBR a big thumbs up if your expectation is not a lux place. Food service is rotated in an order off the menu format and buffet with 2 special beach side nights in the course of a week. This repeats exactly the same way after one week. Some form of musical entertainment every night as well. They do provide a daily shuttle service to town with a set time itinerary. Enjoy your stay!
