A group of four of us stayed in the Sense of Sea penthouse July 3 - 10, 2021. The apartment is gorgeous, beautifully appointed, and well stocked with cooking utensils. We loved the location because of the water view and the proximity to amazing restaurants. The only downside to the location is some downtown noise from traffic, but we considered that a minor inconvenience. Daphne went above and beyond to provide personalized service, including pre-stocking the fridge and pantry with our favorite items. We highly recommend Senses and will definitely stay there on our next trip to Bonaire!

We stayed for 9 nights (in the 2 bd 2 ba ocean view apt) and loved every single one! The hotel is beautiful (even better than the photos) and is located in an amazing location — with easy walks to food (It Rains Fishes, c’est la vie, Cuba Compagnie, capriccio, Het Consulaat, the Cantina, Number10, and the BBQ place right next door Bobbejan's is also delicious etc etc). And it is located right by the water, with very easy access to the water taxi to Klein Bonaire. Parking was also very easy (we had a pickup truck). Eva, Jur, and the cleaning staff were absolutely amazing and helpful in every single way possible! They lent us a cooler and snorkels which really come in handy. The apt itself had a kitchen with all the amenities you’d need (we made some meals and it had all the necessities) as well as a great espresso machine. Mini splits in each bedroom. Highly recommended!

SENSES is a relatively new hotel in Bonaire. It is not just a new hotel but a new, modern construction as well. It is an excellent combination of "apartment" and "hotel," so it functions great for groups/families with the combination of shared spaces (e.g., kitchen, living room, terrace, etc.) and private bedrooms and bathrooms. It has a fantastic, quick concierge service that provides recommendations or will book transportation, restaurants, and activities for your trip on your behalf. The staff couldn't be friendlier, more responsive, and more welcoming and take care of their guests. The location is quite central to town, so you are within walking distance of the ocean pool, shops, and restaurants. They are right across from Epic, which has catamarans and water taxis to take you on excursions ranging from beaches to snorkeling. The hotel has great views from the upper units of the ocean and sunsets, an on-site pool, parking, and a well-stocked drinks fridge. If you prefer to cook at home instead of eating out, you will enjoy the kitchen which comes with dishes and flatware.

On a whistlestop tour of Bonaire, I stayed in various hotels but SENSES was hands down my favourite by far. From the moment I stepped into my apartment, I was blown away. There is such incredible attention to detail and I loved the decor, the colour accents and the service I received was impeccable as well. My penthouse apartment had an incredible view of the water and I loved the interactive touch screen mirror in the master bedroom. Like everything on this property, the pool area was just fabulous and the property is conveniently located in the heart of Kralendijk. Thank you for an incredible stay, I'll be back!

I can’t say enough amazing attributes for our incredible stay at Senses. First of all the owners Anne and Marcel are one of a kind. We were personally greeted by Anne and gifted wine and an appetizer upon arrival which was very welcoming after a long travel. Not only did she have groceries delivered and put away for us before we arrived but she also made us a dinner reservation that night so we wouldn’t have to worry. They were available whenever we had a question, even making other reservations for us or setting up the water taxi to Klein Bonaire. The hotel itself is GORGEOUS. We stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse which was huge. A large living room with vaulted ceilings full kitchen and large patio overlooking the insane turquoise waters of Bonaire. The 3 bedrooms were spacious and inviting and I’m still dreaming of those beds and linens they were so comfortable! As for location this hotel is in the heart of it! We loved that we could wake up in the morning and walk to a coffee shop or dinner in the evening as well as markets for any essential items. The water taxi was directly across from the hotel in the marina which was wonderful! Driving anywhere on the island only took 15 mins at the most. We absolutely loved our stay at senses thanks to Anne and Marcel and can’t wait to get back to the incredible island!

It was a last minute decision to try this gorgeous new place, and what a wonderful decision it was. From my first inquiry I was super impressed with the prompt, detailed answers I received from Daphne, the Hospitality Manager.

Not only was our apartment a dream, with lovely furnishings, lots of internal & external space, but the locaity on the waterfront and the proximity to lovely restaurants was superb.

All the extra perks such as airport transfers, free water taxi, snorkelling gear, bicycles that were on offer made this holiday such a delightful experience.

The pool area was delightful, but make the most of the free water taxi to Kleine Bonaire. This little island has the best beach in Bonaire and is only a 15 minute, fun boat ride away.

I cannot praise our stay at Senses enough. Daphne's attention to detail and her kindness in making our holiday special were outstanding.

I will definitely be recommending Senses to all my friends and family ( though secretly I will always want a vacancy for my family to go, and good reviews may spoil this - haha).

Most comfortable bed we have EVER had in a hotel. Friendly and personal service Nicely equipped kitchen Gorgeous modern European interior design for the apartments, and all fixtures and furnishings were top quality Off street parking was available for our rental car Located on a busy street but noise was never a problem (we were on the side facing the water.) AC was quiet and powerful but is only in the bedroom . Living room gets rather warm in the afternoon due to western exposure but gets better after sunset Owners are new (the property is also new,) and said they are considering the possibility of adding light filtering shades Owners are very responsive and easy to contact Highly recommended. Very good property and easy to walk to many restaurants etc

Traveling around the world I have stayed in many hotels but never experienced a level of hospitality as in Senses. From the moment you arrive at the island until you depart you feel welcome. Eva and her team do an amazing job. The hotel itself is as wonderful. Truly a boutique hotel with its own philosophy, all centered around making you feel comfortable. The location is centrally in Kralendijk close to all the restaurants and bars. We definitely can recommend Senses. We will go again.

Senses is a boutique hotel on the northern side Kralendijk, Bonaire. The rooms are modern and quite comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating as well. The location is great if you’re diving or want a lot of great dining choices within walking distance of the hotel. We plan on returning when visiting Bonaire again.
