Eden Beach Resort - very nice facilities, great beach bar (Bongos), and
fantastic dive shop (Wannadive Bonaire).  I used the city center dive shop
location rather than the resort location because I was taking Advanced Open
Water Certification, and it wasn't offered at the resort during my time
there.  I hadn't been diving in too many years to admit... but instructors
were awesome, made me feel completely at home and comfortable.  Kind of
like part of the "family".  They were very good at not pushing if
you weren't comfortable with a particular dive, but were very supportive
and encouraging.  There was one day with heavy surge that made for
difficult entry/exit, but otherwise the weather was fantastic.
I found Bonaire to be a great place for new/inexperienced divers.  I was
amazed at the reef health and diversity, even though I've heard from other
sources that they are declining.  The only thing I wish I had known is how
much I was going to enjoy diving again so I could have booked my stay for
longer!
