You are joking right water temp 78-79 Bonaire in July? Did you do shore or boat diving? How many dives a day? How many people on the boat? Does the shop have Nitrox? Any issues with crime on the island? Did you do the All-Inclusive or try other restaurants?
By Ronald Bailey in VA, US at Oct 14, 2015 18:24 EST  
responding to rskuhn: Was there in late june/early july. Water temp was as stated and confirmed by three different gauge thermometers. Did shore and boat dives, mostly boat dives. Nitrox included with all inclusive/dive package. Only ate at the hotel restaurant. No need to go any where else for food unless that is your "thing". Average number of divers on their large boat ranged between 8 and about 15. Never felt crowded.

Addition comments to rdkuhn: Had no crime issues at the hotel. Safe in each room. I feel that the grounds are generally secure. Did two boat dives a day. I might add that I have been to Bonaire many times and I and others that have been to the Plaza Resort feel that this is the best deal going. Hope theses comments answer your questions.
