Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A small group of Americans from Pennsylvania and New Jersey are proud owner of this unit.
Owner purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Owner chose Curaçao
This beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit is owned by a group of Americans who fell in love with Curacao and specifically this unique property. The people, the climate and the crystal blue water are reasons we love the island. The view from this unit is unlike anything else you'll find on the island and why we bought here.

Great Place to stay but a bit insolated from Town
The people were easy to work with and everything was great as far as cleanliness. Location was great and the views from the porch were unforgettable. Diving and snorkeling from the laguns and beaches in the north end were awesome. That said, the distance to town was pretty far and we only make one trip to check it out. No need to leave the north end if all you want is secluded beachs. Playa Lagun was nice but the beach was small and very little shade to sit on the beach and enjoy. We ended up going to other beaches most days. Richard at the dive shop was the best, really enjoyed friendly helpful nature. He pretty much led us into the right direction for diving. Dive shop is set up very nice with rinse tanks and storage available at the shop. Drive right up to the shop, load and go.
Now for a few minor issues that keeps me from giving 5 stars. Kitchen was really difficult for cooking. No real oven (although we knew this going in) and limited on cookware. Surprised there was no beach towels or even soap in soap in the bathrooms. My biggest complaint would be the fact that you get charged for air conditioning which for us was not an issue for us because we left windows and doors open all day. The issue was many of the windows and even the sliders has no screens which meant that flies and other insects were free to come and go. If you are going to charge for AC, at least have good screens on the windows and doors. One time we even has a bird stop by for a visit.
Great location and great snorkeling
This is our second week-long stay in this home. It has beautiful views of the bay (Playa Lagun) and a wonderful opportunity to have local fauna (Venezualian troupials, bananaquits, brown throated parakeets, Iquanas) visit you as you sit on the patio and enjoy the views of turquiose water and sunsets.
This home (Lagoon Ocean Resort #16) has three bedrooms and three bathrooms but I would recommend it for no more that two couples. The kitchen is well-equipped, and there is a local minimart about a ten minute drive, in Barber. For a full supermarket, though, you'll have to drive about 35 minutes to Centrum supermarket.
Great snorkeling by walking down the steps to the beach, or visit my favorite snorkeling beach, Klein Knip, which is about an 8 minutes drive from Playa Lagun. There were lots of green turtles in Playa Lagun during our stay. The largest one sleeps in Lagun Bay overnight.
Great trip! Family of 5 first time to Curacao. Great location for northwest side of island beach/snorkel trips. Lagun was great for snorkeling itself, too, and just right down the long staircase. Drank probably way too many smoothies at Bahia which was needed.
Kids loved the 10 yard step to the pool during downtime, as did we.
Simple check-in, check-out.
Next time we'll utilize the grocery service on arrival as it could have saved us a bunch of time the first morning.
FYI, check out the fresh baked bread service as well.
We have just nothing but good to say about this place. We will come back some day for sure.
The view, the ocean, the snorkling, everything is amazing.
Thank you! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your time in Curacao.
Snorkeling is great here!
We stayed in this bungalow with our friends for 9 days. It can comfortably hold six people because there are 3 bedrooms, each with two twin beds, as well as three bathrooms, each with a shower. We were a group of four people, however.
The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can stock up at Centrum supermarket in Willemstad, about 35 minutes away, and prepare your own food. There are also two nearby restaurants. The onsite restaurant, Bahia, has good food. We didn’t care for the food at the other restaurant which is just off the public parking at Lagun Beach.
The resort had mostly Dutch guests during our stay, though there were Americans as well. The management, father Peter Koster and son Ben, are friendly. The resort is quiet and well—run.
Keep in mind that there are “garden view” and “ocean view” bungalows. This particular bungalow has a beautiful ocean view. You can sit out on either the 2nd floor or 1st floor balconies and enjoy the ocean view by day, and the stars/planets at night.
There is a coin operated washing machine and dryer on premises.
That being said, the resort is located off the beaten path. It is a 35 minute drive to the fully stocked Centrum supermarket in Willemstad. Alternatively, there is a decent minimarket (Centro or Centru Minimart) located in Barber, a 10 minute drive from the resort.
I would recommend this place for avid snorkelers. You can walk down the resort’s private staircase which leads you directly to the beach, and snorkel each day. The water is calm, and this is a good place to go for new snorkelers, as well as experienced onces such as us. Similarly, you may want to try night snorkeling because the water is so calm, and the lights from the resort help you find your way. For snorkeling at night, you will need to bring or rent a dive light. If you don’t love to snorkel, I would recommend you stay at a more centrally located resort in Curacao.
Finally, I should mention that about 10 minutes away is Playa Grandi (also called Playa Pescador) where you are guaranteed to see sea turtles. The local fishermen discard portions of their catch into the sea, and this has led to the turtles making that beach their home.
Great time !
This is a great place to stay if you love to swim and Snorkel. Nice and Quiet too with no cars in the background. The deck is a ten !
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your trip!
