Please take a look at what some of our customers had to say about our hotel Lions Dive & Beach Resort
Page:  2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
This is the first time ever we went back to a place we have been to before i.e. to Lions Dive. Why? Because it is just perfect! Where can you snorkel just right on the beach? Everything about the hotel is very natural and tasty; right on a beautiful beach, with low palm trees, no plastic feeling as white plastic chairs or textile parasols - instead wooden chairs and palm leaf sun shields. The beach is not too crowdy, neither are the pool areas - there is room for everyone. The food is excellent. Only the prices are a bit too high. A small supermarket with the most neccessary things at the boulevard "next door" would make the spot totally perfect! A trip to Klein Curacao (picture attached) is recommended! I am sure we will be back a 3rd time!
My husband and I enjoyed our 8 day stay in late February 2014. Staff at the hotel were uniformly helpful and cheerful. The room was comfortable, and the air conditioner pleasingly quiet and reliable. We were impressed with the cuisine, which was better than other all-inclusive resorts we have used. We visited during Carnaval, and we thought the Mardi Gras parade was a hoot. Both those in the parade, and those watching the parade, were having a very good time. We\'ll be back !
Ein perfektes Hotel fuer traumhaftes Urlaub. Wir sind eine Woche im Januar gewesen. Wunderschoenes Zimmer mir Meerblick, drei Restaurants, Fruehstueck am Strand, Hotel direkt am Strand, 50m Swimmingpool, Ozeanarium in der unmittelbaren Naehe, Sportmoeglichkeiten - z.B. Jogging mit Hoteldirektion - perfekt.
Sehr schöne Anlage, durch die Wellenbrecher auch sehr schöner Platz zum Schnorcheln. Eigentlich machen wir nie zweimal am gleichen Platz Urlaub, aber diesmal könnten wir schwach werden.
Im Sportpool sollte eine Bahn dann auch wirklich zum Bahnenschwimmen freigehalten werden.
Man sollte nicht mit "Privatstrand" werben, wenn man nicht darauf achtet, dass auch genug Plätze für die Hotelgäste freibleiben. Es war durch andere Gäste einfach zu voll. Zumal diese oft gar nichts davon wussten, dass es sich um einen Privatstrand handelt und nicht zum zahlen aufgefordert wurden...
Sehr gemütliches, bodenständiges Hotel in traumhafter Lage, sehr schöne Anlage, gutes Essen für den europäischen Geschmack, sehr hilfsbereites Rezeptionspersonal. Zimmer zweckmäßig eingerichtet, nicht allzu groß, nicht luxuriös.
Zeitweise sehr stark frequentiertes Buffet beim Frühstück.
Positiv zu vermerken ist, dass bei Veranstaltungen am Strand die Ruhezeiten exakt eingehalten werden.
Estivemos comemorando nossos 20 anos de casados no Lions Dive e foi tudo maravilhoso!!! O atendimento, nossa suite, a comida, a praia. Não temos nada para reclamar!!!
A facilidade de acesso ao mergulho bem ao lado do hotel também foi muito boa porque pudemos fazer tudo com tranquilidade!
It was our Honeymoon trip and we're so glad we picked this hotel :D, the staff and everybody was sooooo nice/friendly/helpful just great!
The beach, our room with a wonderful view where always clean. We enjoyed every day we also had a rent-a-car for 4 days so we could see more of this beautiful island more gorgeous wild beaches.
The hotel had a great sport program running/biken/swimming and everything was free also the gym :)....
They had a free shuttle bus everyday to willemstadt and a grocery store thats fantastic......
We really had agreat time and again thanks for everything and we can't wait to come back
Friendly and helpfull staff. Beach was clean with great swimming. Crystal clear water with great snorkeling right in front of the hotel. Room was clean and confortable with a terrific view. Free shuttle to town and to the grocery store. Resort provides an orientation meeting with many suggestions. It was well worth the effort to rent a car and explore the other end of the island. Spectacular beaches amongst the cliffs with beautifull aqua colored water.
My wife and I were part of a dive group (Scuba Venture) that stayed at Lions Dive the last week of March /first week of April 2012. The resort and accommodations were very nice, the weather warm & wonderful and the diving fantastic. The dive staff, dive masters and boat captains are all first rate. We will come back again. WE are looking forward to a return trip and/or moving to Curacao.
We enjoyed our first visit to Curaçao quite a bit and were largely satisfied with Lions Dive -- which has strong points and a few challenges.
--> BEST ASPECTS: Ideal setting on a clean, ample-size beach with walk-in snorkeling (superb, thanks to breakwall with submerged plant growth that's a fish magnet). Plenty of adjustable loungers with cushions, thatched-roof palapas, wooden huts. Kid-safe wading areas, food/drink service, seaside massages/manicures, a few nearby shops, short walk (beach or roadside sidewalk) to popular seafood restaurant/club (Mambo Beach).
--> OTHER AMENITIES: Twice-daily free shuttles to supermarket and downtown. Public bushalte (stop) right outside driveway for convenient access ($1 USD) to downtown and popular Jaan Thiel Beach (highly recommended). On-site car rental (National/Alamo). Free terminal to print boarding passes. Three Internet terminals ($5 for 30 minutes).
--> DOWNSIDES: No tour desk/concierge.Inconsistent staff at desk, where check-in was handled w/out warmth or responsiveness to questions.Bus question later stumped 1st clerk. Housekeeping poor (floor stayed sandy, shower soap dispenser unfilled 2 days, past guest water bottle under bed). No hair dryer until requested. Snorkels/fins provided for fee, though site promotes snorkeling.
--> OFF-SITE: Next-door Sea Aquarium is free to Lions Dive guests and well worth at least two visits to see dolphin, sea lion and small shark-feeding shows. (Swim with dolphins for a fee.) Walk along curbed road (5 mins) past nearly adjacent Breezes Hotel to Sea Side Terrace + adjacent Surfe & Turf small bayside restaurants for value and friendly proprietors/staff. This is beach food as it should be served! Ask for homemade pica (hot) sauce if you dare.
--> DAY TRIP: Book a 90-minute ferry to Kleine Curaçao, an uninhabited island with pristine, broad beach, sea turtles visible to snorkelers, an abandoned lighthouse and a photogenic, rusting shipwreck on shore. Go with The Mermaid ($95 USD), which serves tasty continental breakfast and barbecued buffet lunch in its own beach structure (indoor bathroom). It also has beach chairs, small shelters, free snorkel masks, ultra-friendly crew.
A rival operation (Pelican) sails there with a catamaran that stays anchored offshore for snorkeling, with lunch served on board. It promotes open bar, but our crew provided complimentary beer and rum/cola.
