best photos ops on any dive trips to date.  There were times we never

The great side is Bonaire is so relaxed, so independant and so free to dive
at your own pace and so many diverse opportunities.  The bad side would be
to know 4 people would have to share 1 bathroom in the bedroom of the other
couple.  You want to know your travel friends at that point. :) There were
problems with the Nitrox testing equipment at Carribean Club and we tested
5 tanks the first day to find 3 with enough air to dive.  After that, we
used Buddy's drive and dive card and picked up all our tanks at the regular
Buddy's shop. We had problems of not getting to eat at the resort the first
couple nights, but after talking to Ruud, things settled in great and the
food was fantastic.  The drinks were some of the best on the island and the
staff was good.  It appeared there was a learning curve in the waitering
staff. Overall, the resort was fantastic for not being directly on the
water and I would definately take the calm and peacefulness of it again. We
will be returning in December of 2007
