Camera rinse tub on board every boat; rooms have plenty of plugs for
battery charging, etc.  Depending on where room is located, it can be a
distance to carry a heavy rig down to the boat!  House reef is ALWAYS a
great dive for any photographer.

We stayed in the brand-new deluxe oceanfront junior suites and they are
gorgeous.  Rooms are spacious and well-furnished.  Every room has a
king-size bed with pillow-top mattress and queen sleeper sofa.  There's a
large desk with flat-panel TV and plenty of room to charge batteries,
change lenses, etc.  Every room has a wet bar with
dishes/glasses/silverware, a medium-sized refrigerator, microwave &
coffee maker.  Each suite has a private patio with sun loungers and a small
table/chairs.  They are located right next to the steps leading down to the
gear storage area/Nitrox fill area and dive boats.

Dive boat staff are always accommodating and requests for specific dive
sites have always been granted.  The water temp reached 86 degrees for a
prolonged period this late summer/fall so there is some coral bleaching
going on, but the water temp is dropping back into the normal ranges and it
appears the hard corals are starting their recovery process.

We saw eels, turtles, eagle rays, some barracuda and large schools of
creole wrasse and tangs cruising the reefs.  All in all, Bonaire is a great
value with top-notch Caribbean diving.
