1The resort was located in a beautiful area- although the grounds were
unkept. I wouldn't spend the extra money on a grand suite because it was
just a very large room with too much unusable space.  If we were to do it
again we would get a villa. The food was very good but the service was
extremely slow " Bonaire is the home of the 3 hour dinner".We
learned to ask for the check when you received your entree.  Toucan Dive
was very good , the boats were great  and the divemasters would leave early
if you wanted a popular dive sight in order to beat the competition.  Salt
Pier was by far our best dive, we spotted numerous scorpionfishes which was
a thrill for me.But what made the trip for us was the Aqua Kids program
which my 8 year old daughter loved.  She pointed out fish while snorkeling
that I couldn't even identify thanks to the fish identification class. She
learned Sassy, went to the donkey sanctuary, and took a boat ride to Klein
Bonaire to search for turtle nests and dolphins. My wife and I could dive
without worrying about whether my daughter was having a good time or not. 
She even came home with a list of Dutch words to teach her classmates.  For
that reason alone we will probably return.  None]
