Comments The resort has a full dive facility with drive thru air, their fleet of vehicles, restaurants, pools for kids, and a good reef off the back of the property. The security is good and we felt safe at the resort. Most of our diving was along the sites out side of the property. Bonair is recovering from severe coral damage. I don't know the cause but the recovery appears in process. We had great experience with the reefs, staff, and Buddy Dive program. The property is worn and maintenance is an on going thing but the diving is the main event. And they have lots of rinse tanks for your gear and an ease in the flow of the use of their tanks, nitrox, and diving. It was very relaxing overall we had a mellow dive vacation with our family, and grand kids that learned to snorkel.
