Vincent and Caroline were wonderful hosts! Very friendly and lots of great advice! Nice rooms with everything you could need. Extremely well set up for diving! This is my 3rd trip to Bonaire and first time staying at Coral Paradise. I will never stay anywhere else again! This place was perfect for us! You will find communication superb and we were also emailed a list of restaurants which made making reservations a breeze! And most nights we didn't even make a reservation and had no trouble finding a table somewhere. Thank you, Vincent and Caroline, your hospitality and genuineness made our stay perfect at Coral Paradise!!
Awesome place. It was our first time on Bonaire and Caroline and Vincent made the diving experience relaxing and comfortable. They’ve truly thought of everything to make the guest experience go smoothly. Very kind and helpful. Nice accommodations with plenty of kitchen supplies. All is impeccably clean. A great place to stay! Thank you Caroline and Vincent for being wonderful hosts!
Vincent and Caroline were amazing hosts! Very friendly and lots of helpful advice (that I wish we’d heeded a bit more). The place is just north of town, very convenient although really I guess you’re never far from anything on Bonaire. Nice rooms and extremely well set up for diving.
We recently had a great time in Bonaire, which is the right place to be on vacation during Covid time. You need to have a negative PCR test to enter the country and another after 5 days. So it is pretty safe to be there. Coral Paradise is the ideal lodging, because you have your own kitchen and you do not have to go to restaurants all the time, if you want to limit contacts with other people. Rooms are spacious and you also have you own terrace or patio in the shade outside where you can rest and enjoy the fantastic Bonaire breezy warm weather. Caroline and Vincent do everything possible to make your stay comfortable at their resort, which is perfect, quiet and small. They make you feel at home.
Owners Caroline and Vincent were simply amazing hosts! Pre-trip communication was seamless, despite all the wrinkles we had, and once we arrived they were friendly and helpful in any way we needed. Absolutely a charming couple! I tried really hard to think of something when they asked for suggestions to improve the place, and came up with nothing! The set up for cleaning, storing and drying dive gear was top notch and very well thought out. They provide guests with a BCD hanger and a wetsuit hanger, and empty orange juice jugs to use as fresh water showers while on the road. There are two rinse tanks for guests to use, and inside a gated area there are separate vented “lockers” for each room, as well as a large rack for hanging wetsuits and booties in the open air. Having been in places where my gear never dried the entire week, this felt absolutely luxurious! Tanks were delivered daily and stored there as well. It was so convenient that the same key opened the dive storage area, your room, and the back and front gates! The rooms were cozy and each had a nice big covered balcony/patio opening onto the pool with a table and chairs and lounge chairs. We were on the ground floor and felt very safe. Each patio also had a long clothes line (and clothes pins) with an outdoor fan so your towels, swimsuits and rash guards could dry as well! The kitchen was so well equipped that, except for our meal out the first day, we were able to enjoy the remainder of our meals at Coral Paradise (or snacking on the road between dives)! In room dining/snacking allowed more time for diving and, for those of us nervous about passing the Covid test to get back to the USA, helped to avoid exposure! The bathroom had soap and shampoo/conditioner (if your hair is like mine bring your own separate conditioner), and a great storage drawer so you don’t have to junk the place up! They had a wonderful little “library” in the office where you can take/leave a book, and a few items for sale-although no postcards. (Ok there’s my small complaint! Lol) The property was clean and well maintained. Maid service was more than adequate at every other day. Parking was convenient and seemed ample for the size of the property. The property is not right on the water but you can walk with your gear to a nearby site—probably no more exertion than doing 1000 Steps. 😉I’ve only stayed three places on Bonaire, but Coral Paradise was just lovely and I highly recommend it!!…
