Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

After a very long trip we were excited to finally check in to our 3 bedroom unit,D-17, only to be saddened by the hot, musty and run-down unit. A/c was off when we arrived and a bit difficult to figure out how to turn on. Living room a/c unit that we paid extra for was locked, which we had to...

Excellent on-site managent. Great facility. Disappointed that AC in living room was an extra charge. Maid service was through and left our unit spotless. We would stay at this unit again.We really enjoyed the screened pourch.

Great location, easy access to all the dive sites. Condo was amazing Allowed us a late check out. Would have been nice to have housekeeping crew come more than once in 9 days. Good security on the property at all times

My wife and I stayed at Sand Dollar A4 in April 2017. I just can’t say enough positive things about this condo, the owner’s communication and the property manager’s support. The condo was spotlessly clean, spacious for a studio, furnished with seemingly new furniture, a comfortable bed and very well equipped with everything you need. The owners even provide a...

We stayed in E-11/it had everything you could want in a condo-clean, well equipped kitchen, good location/free wifi/free access to the dive dock. You will need transportation to the restaurants, town, other dive sites, windsurfing.

Thanks for the post Claire. Thanks for mentioning transportation needs. This is exactly why we include rental trucks from Avis Car Rental in our packages. Bonaire deserves to be explored tip to tip and no better way to do it than with a well maintained truck!

Reviewed 10 April 2017

Great location, clean, friendly close to water and minimal bugs besides mosquitoes. Would have liked a bigger beach area but the access to the water was superb. The studio condo was the right size for me, with room to entertain friends. The fully tropical decor was calming and the kitchen the perfect size, thanks!

Having bugs and being a Caribbean Island go hand in hand, but Bonaire is lucky that our arid environment and steady trade winds seem to keep most of the creepy-crawlies at bay! You mention the beach...we are careful not to use the word "beach" in our marketing messages because we don't want our guests disappointed. When it is mentioned at...

Love this place, have returned for years. Sand Dollar has one of the longest ocean front properties in Bonaire, small beach and two excellent ladders into the turquoise blue waters of Bonaire. All the fish you want to see snorkeling are out in front and there is a scuba dive shop and dock for dive boats...perfect set up. The rooms...

Thanks Diverdebbi for the post and repeat visits. If you've been coming for a while, you'll know that the list of fish species being seen out front continues to grow. Bari Reef is up to 408 fish species now - at least 50 more than were spotted less than 10 years ago. At least 100 of them visible to snorkelers...

The complex is basic but it has all you need. So sufficed kitchen utensils, dishwasher, microwave, stove with oven, AC (free in bedrooms), TV, safe, toilet and shower/ bad per bedroom etc. Remarkable were the extras such as free beach towels (deposit need), regular cleaning (no end cleaning against extra cost) and you can park your car at your apartment....

Thank you ArnoJa - we'll make sure the good folks at Eddy's and Breeze's N Bites are aware of your post as well. I see you appreciated the ability to park directly in front of your apartment. That isn't something people often think about when planning a stay, but it sure comes in handy when you are carrying your groceries...

Perfect location for snorkeling as one of best spots is right off the resort steps. Dive spots nearby as well as Dive Friends locations. Very nice rooms with friendly, helpful staff. Will be doing this again.

Glad to hear you will be visiting again. A suggestion for your next visit - try a night snorkel. If you have a light great (or want to rent one) just put on your wet suit (and we suggest some protection for your arms and legs) and off you go. It is one of the most amazingly wonderful experiences in...

GroovyM you are a detail person I can see! Thanks for pointing out the specifics. Our reservations staff do our best to decipher what might work best for each guest - do they want upper level or lower, screened in porch or open, etc. but it always helps if the guests know what their choices are as well. So thanks...
