Comments My non-diving wife enjoyed Habitat Curacao. She felt the room was clean and well maintained. The air conditioning would freeze you if you set it low. Main desk service was excellent. I would rate the other staff as not particularly good on service which felt slow at times tho the job did get done. The store had strange hours too in terms of buying extras. You had to work around this.

If one is expecting a 5 star experience, don't come here. If you can be a bit flexible with the staff and accept a laid back attitude, you will have an excellent time.

Steaks were excellent. Some of the "local" recipe foods were not so good. Ice Cream was Excellent.
