Comments We booked Curacao because our trip to Dominica was cancelled, and it turned out to be an excellent choice! This was our first trip to Curacao (three female divers). We chose All West Apartments and Go West Diving based on the reviews, and were not disappointed.

The apartments are perfect. Priced right, roomy with nice decks right on the water. They are clean and well maintained. A pickup truck came with the apartment, so we didn't have to spend extra time or money renting a vehicle, which is a HUGE benefit.

Going to Curacao, staying at All West Apartments and diving with Go West in March, 2019. Your report was excellent, and I look forward to my trip, staying for two weeks. Please email me with any other tips you may have at info@craigskeyboards.com. Craig W.

you'll absolutely love it! Check out the local restaurants in West Punt - they are all excellent. And if you like fresh tamarind, there's a tamarind tree literally across the street from the apartments - just walk out the door and you'll see it.
