We really liked this hotel !!! It was really small with only about 9 rooms which was great! The rooms are a really good size and have everything you might need for your stay! The grounds were lovely and the lizards very friendly. You get a free breakfast which is nice and the Lizards will help you eat it! You...

I read the other Tripadvisor reviews and decided to book Sonrisa. It is a well built, everything works, clean facility. Because it is small, all the guests talked to each other and I made some nice friends.

This is our fourth time staying at the Sonrisa. We love the place!!! It's quiet and the staff especially Jacqueline and Sonia are exceptionally good at what they do.We go down there to windsurf and we have always gotten an apartment and share two connecting roooms. All of our rooms are always well cleaned and the grounds are immaculately maintained....

Sonrisa is a lovely small hotel on a quiet street in Kralendijk. We had a great room with fast (free) wifi, a fridge, comfortable bed, etc etc. Restaurants, supermarkets and dive school are all within short walking distance. So far, a sweet and lovely place. But then, Jacqueline (the owner) creates the real difference. She is very warm and welcoming,...

The owner made me feel welcome from the moment I checked in 'till I left. I will defenitely come back to stay at Sonrisa! I have been working in a South American country. I was able to have a nice break at Sonrisa.

In the past, my husband and I have primarily chosen big name resorts for our trips. But in Bonaire, there are no big names so rather than go with a big resort we chose this boutique hotel. I am very glad I chose Sonrisa based on others' reviews. As others have mentioned, Jacqueline makes you feel very welcome and will...

This will be our third visit to the island and we look forward to seeing our friends Jaqueline and Roger again as well as the other friends we've met met while staying at Sonrisa. My wife and I are avid windsurfers and Sonrisa is truly paradise for us. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are comfortable and the free breakfast...

My family and I stayed at this lovely boutique hotel for a week during September 2011.I would thoroughly recommend anyone travelling to Bonaire to consider this hotel. The hotel itself is small with good sized rooms. Everything was spotlessly clean and a nice breakfast was provided each morning. The grounds of the hotel are very well kept and there is...

We had an excellent time in Bonaire, mainly because we had a great stay at Sonrisa. The room and grounds were nice and clean and the service was great. Thank you Jaqueline for a good time and friendly service.

Sonrisa is a great choice in Bonaire. Its more like apartments than a hotel. The location is a few minutes from downtown Kralendijk and the airport. The entire place is gated which is nice in Bonaire. While I personally didn't care of the hardness of the beds the people I was traveling with loved them. The pool is a wonderful...
