UW Photo Comments Rinse buckets on boats, but once they were filled with P&S systems, the big rigs had to sit out. I kept mine on the forward bulkhead away from sloshing around in the rinse bucket.

Comments 9th time visiting Bonaire, and the 7th at Divi. Even though it is one of the older properties on the island, they try very hard to keep it up to standard. While we were there, they were expanding the restaurant area, patining was going on, and there were workmen doing basic maintenance chores as well. Front desk staff very helpful with dinner reservations in town, and all phases of check-in and check-out. Restaurant staff really friendly. Rooms are clean, but a bit dated...who cares, anyway...we're there to dive! Serge the dive ops manager does a great job with scheduling groups and individuals for their diving days. Large signup board outside dive shop. Very informative briefing on diving Bonaire once you arrive. For those who have been there before, a little boring, but i always pick up some little detail each time. Resort is very close to town, less than 10 minute walk. Car rental right on site, but reserve a car before arriving on island. Can't wait to go back.
