Comments Our 4th visit to Buddy Dive Resort in the past 3 years. We make Bonaire and Buddys an annual pilgrimage. Resort staff are friendly and helpful. Accomodations are adequate and always clean and comfortable. Dive facilities and staff are excellent. The diving is superb with healthy reefs with loads of small critters. The people of Bonaire are polite and friendly and seem happy to have you visit their island paradise. Local restaurants have good food at reasonable prices. Meal choices run the gamut from Whataburger, KFC, and Subway on the simple side to Cappricios and Richards on the elegant side. Our personal favorite is the Rib Factory which is located on the second floor of the Kralendyke shopping area overlooking the harbor. A great location to catch the sunsets and enjoy a great meal with friends and family reflecting on another day in Divers Paradise.
