Comments The great side is Bonaire is so relaxed, so independant and so free to dive at your own pace and so many diverse opportunities. The bad side would be to know 4 people would have to share 1 bathroom in the bedroom of the other couple. You want to know your travel friends at that point. :) There were problems with the Nitrox testing equipment at Carribean Club and we tested 5 tanks the first day to find 3 with enough air to dive. After that, we used Buddy's drive and dive card and picked up all our tanks at the regular Buddy's shop. We had problems of not getting to eat at the resort the first couple nights, but after talking to Ruud, things settled in great and the food was fantastic. The drinks were some of the best on the island and the staff was good. It appeared there was a learning curve in the waitering staff. Overall, the resort was fantastic for not being directly on the water and I would definately take the calm and peacefulness of it again. We will be returning in December of 2007
