The young man at the desk couldn't have been nicer about my predicament. In fact he helped book me into another resort so I could shower. Loved the food and bar. 3 days without hot water/soap for showering even after repeated requests. A refund/credit would have been in order however no comp was offered. I moved to Divi Resort for the remainder of vacation. Towels were frayed and old. Pool closed at 6 or so.
Really mellow, in-town location near all the excellent restaurants. No pool but the super helpful service-oriented manager, and the excellent breakfast, more than compensate. Very very clean rooms and excellent beach and restaurant recommendations. No pool, but we knew this.
(Hotel Employee) was very accommodating he made us tea and herbal shots to help our cold while in Bonaire and his location. He even went to the pharmacy for cold and flu medicine for us. Wished I felt better to fully enjoy the location the food was very g
Great location, nice rooms Ac unit leaked in room, no equipment rental return after hours so we could not night dive before we left
While it's not a luxury hotel, buddy dive is a great experience. I have now made the trip several times with a local dive shop here in town and you couldn't ask for a more relaxing vacation. DO NOT MAKE THIS TRIP UNLESS YOU ARE A DIVER!!! The diving is wonderful and extremely convenient. There are over 100 dive site on the island and all are amazingly beautiful. I have only done a few boat dive which are easy if you intend to go to a reef that is a little hard to access. The rooms are adequate and cleaned everyday. Personel are extremely friendly as everyone on the island. Breakfast is offered buffet style every morning. Remember there are no cows on the island so the milk is powdered. I recommend the fresh omelets they prepare for you. Lunch is usually eaten at the resort. Burgers are great and the chicken pita is very good. Most dishes have a rather ethnic flavor. The best part is dinner although the place fills up fast and that is the Lion's Den restaurant. Amazing fo...
Food was acceptable to poor. Because most restaurants are outdoors, insects made the dining experience unpleasant. Bring bug spray. Recommend going to local grocery store to stock up for quick meals. Room has refrigerator, stove and oven. Although there were several bait traps for roaches in the room, we saw none. Bonaire has fantastic reefs and coral formations, however, marine life tended to be small. If you enjoy beach diving, Bonaire may be for you; however, if you enjoy boat diving, I recommend another location. Resort offers only 1 boat dive a day (subject to availability) and there are few outside boat operators to engage for additional boat diving. Because of unusual currents around Bonaire at the time, visibility in water for diving was okay during the day and poor at night. Wireless internet service in the room rarely worked. Because suite had only a 5 gal. hot water heater, showers were luke warm at best, but rarely were cold. There is no room service. Because ti...
The relaxed atmosphere was perfect. Small, intimate and private. With the best view!
The warm and personalized welcome (pick up at the airport) you receive. The fact that you always have a contact person (Rashka) ready to help if case of any kind of problem. The friendliness ... Finally, we booked the standard studio but were offered the possibility to switch to the bigger room with access to the common kitchen and living room. An offer we took and didn't regret!! No remarks at all
The staff was very concerned in give us the best ! They helped us with a lot of tips of activities and restaurants. A very distinctive place with a great view of Bonaire!
Not much we liked! Long list of NO likes; dirty room, kitchen falls apart, light fixtures broken, air-condition did not work, no one to call, phone did NOT get answered; we left after an hour; hope to get my money back; Bonaire has a lot of other nice places, at the end not this one!
