The Island of Curacao has many wonders to enjoy. Take in the most beautiful sunset you'll ever see, snorkel before breakfast, dive right from our beach, teach your children to swim or eat at one of two restaurants located at Playa Lagun. All of these are at your fingertips from Lagoon Ocean Resort. The waters are calm and the sea life is abundant. The climate is warm, yet our trade winds keep you comfortable. Curacao is located outside the hurricane belt just east of Aruba in the Caribbean where it never rains for very long.
This unit sits approximately 20 feet above sea level and less than 10 feet from its edge. It features a second floor Master Bedroom Suite with private bath, loft/sitting room and two sets of sliders to a large terrace which provides a breath taking view of the sea and sunset. Granite counter tops have been added to enhance the beauty of this exceptional unit. No matter where you look, the view is nothing less than spectacular. Leave the windows open and fall asleep to the sounds of the sea. Lounge in the pool just outside your door or walk down the steps to Playa Lagun. A dive shop is located at the beach below us for your convenience. Christoffel National Park and Shete Boca are about 15 minutes away. Take a 35 minute drive into Willemstad and window shop or take a walking tour that highlights the beautiful Dutch architecture. The Aquarium with its Dolphin Academy is a favorite for the kids.
You are sure to run out of time before running out of things to do and see. We have a Residence Manager on site to attend to your needs and ensure a carefree stay.

A small group of Americans from Pennsylvania and New Jersey are proud owner of this unit.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2006
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.
View...View...View and proximity to the beach. Two restaurants are available at Playa Lagun.
My husband and I traveled with our ten month old baby and my mom. We also had my brother come for a couple of days as well. The condo was huge and we all had our own rooms and bathroom. The living area was nice and we loved having a kitchen.
The view of Playa Lagun can not be beat! What a gorgeous view from the downstairs outside patio and the upstairs HUGE patio. The pool was right out the back door as well as the outside shower which was great to wash off our snorkel equipment.
The condo is in a great location to Bahia Bar and restaurant which we enjoyed for many meals. The staff and food are excellent! Not to mention the unbelievable view!!
The stairs leading to the beach were convenient as we snorkeled each morning and evening in the Lagun. We have snorkeled and scuba dived all around the world and we would have to say the snorkeling at Playa Lagun is top five. We saw turtles, octopus, crabs and tons of fish.
If you are looking for a nice size place for your family, great snorkeling and a even better view this place is for you!!
My husband and I took our daughter (12) and nephews (9 and 7) to Curacao for their first real snorkeling vacation, and we could not have been happier with this rental. The pictures cannot convey how gorgeous it is, and how close it is to the dive shop and restaurant right next door. The beach is a quick walk away and down some stairs, and you can actually watch the kids from the condo -- I was able to let the older kids go to the beach by themselves because I could keep an eye on them from the condo patios (there's one downstairs and one upstairs). The dive shop rented us lights for one night swim, and during the course of our week we saw squid, eels, cuddlefish, parrotfish, goatfish, and more.
There are two national parks nearby which we explored by rental car. We also took a snorkeling trip off a boat through one of the other local dive shops, and saw sea turtles and a sea cave. Overall, the water and sea life were fantastic. We also went shopping in Willemstad one day. Nice waterfront, good ice cream for the kids.
We did a lot of self-catering, and the car was essential for our grocery runs as this rental is on the north side of the island, about thirty minutes from the larger grocery stores closer to Willemstad and/or the airport. It would have been nice to have had a blender, some more Tupperware for storage, and some large bowls for salad/cut fruit. There's only one large bowl. And I wish I had known before our first grocery run that there were no paper towels or soap; make sure to bring your own.
I would absolutely recommend this property. It's a beautiful location for a good price.
Place was as described and as indicated in the photographs. We had a good time staying here. We spotted dolphins and a turtle during our stay.
We would come back to this place!
Our stay was excellent. This was a beautiful location & everyone loved staying right at the edge of the bay. We found Lagun to be the best of the 6-8 beaches we visited while snorkeling. Although we didn't see any turtles in Lagun this particular week, and only briefly saw one at Jeremy, the corals + number and variety of fish at Lagun make it a hidden gem. We were surprised by the contrast between Lagun & the beaches down by Willemstad, and hope Lagun stays the way it is.
The rest of the vacation was also an enjoyable adventure - the languages (Dutch, Spanish, Papiamento), driving up/down the island with relatively limited maps & markings, using the buses, hiking Christofel, the local food & bakeries in Willemstad, ... . The "supermarket" at California was a good place to get groceries during the week (- the other Tokos were just a surprise). Thanks very much for the opportunity to stay at your place!
There were 6 of us; even with the bus, the car was rather essential. A bit more coordination up front could have been more helpful - like the address, condo number, where to park to register and check-in upon entry (since the vehicle gate out front is locked) - but everyone was especially friendly and a local visitor let us in and got us started.
This is a great location! I don't have anything negative to say because I will return with my family. We are avid snorkelers. I rented a car, and we snorkeled other spots as well. We didn't eat out much because we like to cook. We went to the main supermarket. I was impressed with the foods they had like American foods. The owner sent great directions, and Ben, Peter the caretaker's son, greeted us before we could get out of the car. Peter and Ben will help you with any problems and directions. Thankfully, we didn't have any problems. We only cooled two bedrooms and bathrooms at night and in the early mornings. Our electricity bill was around $63 for 7 days. I thought that was good. It was nice and cool. The island breezes cooled the middle of the condo enough for us. There was an air conditioner you could use for the middle. We had plenty of clean towels. No one had mentioned the condo had a safe. I was glad we had a place for our extra cash. You can use American money on the island. Just take smaller bills like twenties or less. This was my second trip to Curacao, and I preferred this instead of an all inclusive. I was not there for parties but snorkeling and good fellowship. The locals are friendly, and it's a safe island to rent a car. I have been several times to Mexico and Jamaica. You can't beat the snorkeling in Curacao so I don't know if I will ever go to other Caribbean islands again. Another good thing is Curacao is not in the Hurricane Belt and doesn't get much rain to spoil a trip. I just returned and am ready to go back. We met a couple who told us about Captain Goodlife at Santa Cruz. The captain will take you to a cave to snorkel and then a black sand beach with a sunken ship to snorkel for $20 per person. Well worth it. The trip lasts around two hours. Santa Cruz is not far from Playa Lagun. Sooo peaceful and beautiful!!!!
This is one beautiful place with an awesome location. Minutes to the sea and seconds to the pool. The view is breathtaking. The sunsets can only be fully appreciated sitting on the upper or lower veranda as photos don't do them justice. The evenings were quiet and the area felt very safe even outside the gate. We enjoyed our vacation tremendously in Curacao. Lots to see. Diving and snorkeling right outside your front door... and if you want to try scuba diving, lessons are available right at the office. We did it and what an experience. Fresh catch of the day can be bought from the locals right at the beach. The condo was accommodating with all the supplies we needed. Every bedroom had a designated bathroom. This property has had many improvements done since the fall as was explained to us and there were a couple of issues that had to be addressed while we were there but that didn't take away from the enjoyment we had visiting this Island. Should we plan a return visit to Curacao we'd have no problem staying here again.
