Any fish?

Jump to last reply

I have gotten some great responses, thank you. Is there alot to see from a shore snorkle at the marriott? Any fish, etc? Just trying to decide for the entertainment value underwater? Is there an outdoor restaurant at the marriott? How close is Mambo beach from The Lion's Dive Hotel? Any info would be helpful.

    I can answer some of your questions. Q: Is there alot to see from a shore snorkle at the marriott? Any fish, etc? I'm a diver, so we dove the Marriott house reef, but we were pretty shallow (<35 ft.) so you'll still see alot. The thing about Curacao (compared to the FLa Keys for example) is that the coral and plantlife is bountiful, but the fish are just ok. That's the opposite in Key West & Key Largo, where the sealife is amazing, but not much coloful or interesting coral. You'll see fish, but the brilliant colors in Curacao will be from the plant life. .............Q2: Is there an outdoor restaurant at the marriott? All of the restaurants at the Marriott were outdoors (the only indoor restaurant is the Emerald Grill Steakhouse and it was closed for renovations when we were there in Nov 02.) The Palm Cafe was serving breakfast only while we were there. It was outdoors with a covered roof. Casual, but nice...that's where the breakfast buffet was. It seemed very popular. Voila is an indoor gourmet deli, but had 4-5 tables set up right outside in the open-aire lobby. Again, it was covered, but very open & breezy. Just lovely. We had dinner one night at the Italian restaurant, Portofino. Excellent service and yummy entrees. We ate indoors, but there was also a lovely outdoor patio with tropical plants with white lights that overlooked the illuminated pool area at night. Quite pretty. The last restaurant at the hotel was Seabreeze Bar deck. The Seabreeze bar itself offered casual fare at lunchtime and their wooden, platform deck offered something a little nicer (overlooking the waves hitting the beach) after 6pm. The deck restaurant didn't have its own kitchen, but shared the kitchen facilities of the breakfast only restaurant, The Palm Cafe. Hope this helps.
