Andrea and Chris Wait purchased this Townhome in 2010
Why Andrea and Chris Wait chose Sabana Westpunt
We have been vacationing in the Carabbean for many years. The island of Curacao however, is the only one that kept drawing us back for repeat visits. Initially we were staying at the 'hotels' near the city of Willemstad. Without fail, we always found ourselves making daily trips to the Westpunt side of the island. The beaches, mountains, diving, north shore boca's and relaxed pace are all splenders that are unrivaled elsewhere on Curacao. We finally asked ourselves, why are we staying in Willemstad....Westpunt it the place to be! So for our next trip we researched villa's in Westpunt, stumbled upon Marazul and ultimately booked a stay. The moment we walked into the resort, we know we found something very very special. The next day, we learned that 2B might become available for sale. The thought of actually owning an oceanfront villa in the Caribbean consumed the balance of our vacation. Until now, the idea was only a dream. But Marazul was different, we felt at home. The day after we returned to Charlotte from our vacation, we contacted the potential seller, and ultimately made the purchase. We had found our dream come true and hope to share it with you as well. Apartment 2B in Curacao is the place 2B.

Great stay in Westpunt!
Great location in Westpunt. Wonderful, gated resort walking distance from restaurants and house reef for diving. Excellent communication with the owners when making last minute changes for arrival time. Highly recommend!
Great stay, great place to dive
Overall, everything is pretty much as advertised. The place was very nice, the grounds were as advertised, location was great for our dive trip and the diving on the house reef was excellent! A couple of notes: The upstairs toilet was running and the owner stated that they were working to get it replaced ASAP. We couldn't get the WIFI to work, but there was a cheat sheet with other nearby WIFI passwords and we found one that worked fine - I notified the owner. There was a note in the unit that indicated if you used the AC 24/7, you might run over the electricity limit and have to pay extra. We ran the upstairs unit only for about 8 hours a day, so I don't expect we bumped into any limit. Overall, if when we return for our next dive trip, I'd stay at Marazul over any other place due to the house reef and this unit would be a top pick.
Our family of four, two teenagers, had a relaxing and fun filled vacation at this beautiful Villa. Chris gave us amazing information before we ever arrived… To help plan our snorkeling adventures. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen… Which is very well stocked. Our kids loved swimming in the pool as we would cook supper ... and we enjoyed hearing their laughter! We only went out for dinner lines… And it was to Sol Food. We have two celiac‘s in our family… And the owner, Sunshine, is very knowledgable and it’s great ... including the view!
One evening we walked out of our villa a few steps… Down the stairs of the cliff… And hopped into the ocean for a little sunset snorkel!!! The Villa was clean and it seems like they thought of everything… Including a laundry basket and ice packs for lunches.
The power did go out a couple times… But it always came back on and I think that’s just an island thing! We felt 100% safe And peaceful. I loved waking up in the upstairs bedroom… And hearing the wind blow… Watching the palm trees… And the fisherman coming in on the ocean. I wish our family could have stayed another week!
Great stay, great snorkeling
Had a great time at Marzul Dive Resort. Very nice property overlooking sheltered waters of Westpunt. Lots of birds and iguanas. Great views and sunsets. Really nice snorkeling with lots of fish and beautiful coral along the cliff edge; even saw squid and a turtle. Unit 2B was very nice and clean. Kitchen is well equipped with range top, toaster oven, microwave, fridge, pots, pans, and dishes. Do bring your own shampoo, none was provided. This unit is directly next to the pool, which on the positive side means your 4 steps away from the pool and lounge chairs; on the negative side the resort is family friendly and the pool got busy, especially in the afternoon with lots of kids playing, so its can get crowded and noisy; usually from 3 to 6 pm during our stay; otherwise pretty quiet. Also the upper balconies around the pool basically can see one another, so not very private. WiFi router in unit was not working but site manager provided passwords for adjacent WiFi access points. Overall great location to get away from the crowds and explore the natural side of Curacao.
Villa was just as described! Best vacation we’ve had in awhile and the location set the tone for our stay. Grounds are well kept and staff was very friendly. Educate yourself about the culture and plan ahead for things like the grocery store or mini-market. Food can be pricey but the owners provide you with a great list of restaurants and things to do. Sol Food restaurant is a must as well as Go West Diving.
Well kept very peaceful can swim in the ocean or in the pool, close to beautiful beaches and very close to great dive shop go West which is less than 5 min away, diving is excellent this end of island looking for a peaceful getaway this is the place. Even so only. 40 min to Willemstad for a night out and shopping take your credit card great watches.
Caribbean seafront (ocean front), divers paradise. Located in Marazul Dive Resort, Westpunt (Banda Bou), the quiet mountainous side of the island. 2 minutes to Alice in Wonderland and Ocean Encounters West dive shop- just voted top 100 dive shops in the world. Very short walk to Playa Forti beach, and close to many top beaches. 5 minutes to Shete Boca National Park and Mt. Christoffel National Park. Beautiful House reef on site. Several restaurants very close to the resort
