Strategically located, it's the perfect starting point for visiting the island. Dive shops, the city and the very beautiful southern area of the island are very close. The neighbourhood where the lodge is, is also very nice. The Italian owners are super nice, helpful and friendly and place is well kept, clean and comfortable and the kitchen outside is a...

Gold food, enough for everybody. Service is fine. The variety of the menu is good. Nice place outside but inside is good too. Must go there! Better make a reservation to be sure that there some space left. Parking is no problem, but you need to have a car to get there.

For our third visit to Bonaire, we chose to stay at the Seadonkey Lodge of Erida and Roberto and it was so far definitely the nicest place to enjoy our holidays. They really put a lot of effort in making the lodge as comfortable for their guests as it can be, looking after every small detail to make you feel...

We stayed there feb 2015 when they were just open. What a beautifull place with so much eye for detail. The owners, an Italian couple were very helpfull and this place was the reason we never left Bonaire (while we initially planned to stay a couple of days in Curacao as well). The beds were perfect, just as anything else....

I stayed four nights at this B&B, spending my days mostly snorkeling. The best part of Sea Element lodge is good overall value for money. Location: The location is a quiet residential (not touristy) neighborhood with very little traffic, so you can sleep windows open. Still, barking dogs can cause noise. It is located several blocks from the oceanfront, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We opened the Seadonkey Lodge in January 2015, after we had bought the former Lodge (Seaelement Lodge). We did our best to renovate and improve this wonderful place, and we hope you will enjoy your stay here! Our lodge is in Belnem, a quiet, beautiful residential area near the Ocean. It is surrounded by a lush garden of palms, banana trees, bouganville and native cacti where you can relax and enjoy the famous Bonaire breeze. We are well located to any activities you may wish to enjoy on the island and we offer the Turtle Studio (up to three people) and the Donkey Studio (up to two people). ... more   less
