Comments Inexpensive resort; clean and comfortable 2 room suite with balcony, but only bedroom is air conditioned. Kitchen was well-equipped. Owner on site, continually making improvements to facilities, was friendly and helpful, but quirky.
Divemasters were competent, but some were not very helpful, and one was very cranky and unhelpful, but good at finding critters.
Set up, carry, clean, and rinse your own gear. Dive boats have no shade, no seats except for the sides, and no place except the floor to set up your tanks. Get in by backward roll, and out by use of a difficult to use side ladder. We understand and appreciate that owner wants to keep prices low, but boats could still be made more diver-friendly.
Water clear, fish life prolific--Bonaire is still divers paradise on this, our third visit. Saw lots of seahorses, but night dive at Salt Pier was disappointing.
Restaurants are excellent and fun, especially Richard's, still our favorite.
Bonaire supermarkets offer wonderful variety of foods for our breakfasts and lunches.
