Great Location

In late January 2014, my wife and I took our 6-month old daughter to Bonaire. We'd previously been to Aruba and Curacao and wanted to complete the 'ABC islands' trifecta. This island had the best diving by far and is much more reserved and 'untouched' when compared to Aruba. Our hotel met expectations since we were looking for something family-friendly that met our budget, which also provided an on-site dive shop and close location to town. It was a relatively short and safe walk along the waterside road to the town where we found different restaurants to try each night. My wife and i took turns diving each day while the other enjoyed time with our daughter in the pool or ocean. There is no sandy beach, per se, but rather a concrete sea-stone pier, but it was still a blast. There is a small casino on premises if that peeks your interest. We didn't realize this was an option until we arrived and spoke to other guests, but there are hotel food plans available. May need to directly call the hotel to make package arrangements. Breakfast buffett costs $14.25 per person and a lunch meal averages about $11 without any plan. Might have been cheaper to seek a meal plan. Still, it was worth it and we would go back. The hotel won't blow your socks off with the luxuries of a 5-star hotel, but it surely provided my family with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We'd go back.

ok for the retired generation

The hotel was probably really good about 30 years ago. It seemed very dated in many ways. The paint on our patio was all peeling off. There is no beach here but very nice views. The dive shop with Alvin and Serge was superior...very attentive, flexible, remembered our names, very personal. The casino was very smoky and the waitress staff in the casino very rude and insulting. If you want to gamble, go to the other casino just down the street. They could use more parking spaces. If you go to Bonaire for a week, having a rental car is a good idea. It is a very relaxed island but not a lot of extra to do if you want night life.

Try some of the small Asian bar and restaruants that look like a hole in the wall...very good food and great prices. They are local. Also, pick up some food and beverages at the big grocery store for the room and save a lot of money. Also, the mangrove kyack tour was worthwhile.

Diver's hotel

Perfect hotel for divers that want super easy diving. You can easily walk to town. Rooms are decent but nothing fancy for sure. Scuba diving was pretty amazing and the BEST part of the hotel was the crews at the dive shop and on the boats!

family vacation - grand parents, parents, children

Rooms were right on the water with very easy access to swinmming via a dock. There is limited beach access, but snorkling is great right from the hotel. Food was very good and reasonable. Walk down town. Access to diving, snorkeling, and other water tours was at the hotel. We had a great time. Hotel staff were very nice. Pools were well maintained. Everyone had things to do.

It was all good!

Very nice resort. Staff was quite pleasant and helpful. The three restaurant/bars are located side by side on the waterfront. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Was very quiet the week I was there so there was no waiting lines at all. There is no sandy beach to speak of, but swimming and snorkeling is done off of a jetty. A long travel day and requires some effort to get there from Boston, MA but it was worth it and I would recommend staying at the Divi.

Nature's Paradise

Great for snorkeling and diving or totally relaxing. No sandy beach at Divi Hotel. Breakfast package was well worth it. Caring staff. Short walk to town. Great restaurants but pricey. Could rent a car and book side trips right at the hotel.

Great for Scuba Divers and everyone else too.

I've been coming to this hotel for years and I still like staying here. The rooms have been updated in the past couple of years. There are several pools for kids and adults. The food at the Chibi Chibi restaurant in the hotel is good. The breakfeast buffet at Calabas is nice as well. It's a short distance to town so if you don't want to dine here every night you can go into town on foot or you can find good dining around the corner and some other places two blocks from the hotel. There is a good dive shop on site for scuba divers and they have their own small beach. It's very close to the airport but not too close.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It's an easy walk from this hotel into town. There is a good restaurant at the hotel and many more with in a short walking distance. Another good thing is that there is a convenience store that sells everything around the corner from the hotel. Also this hotel has a casino on site as well as a well stocked dive shop.

Dive Vacation

The room was comfortable. The restaurants/beach bars were nice, as well. The BEST thing about this hotel is the dive shop and pier that goes straight out to the reef. You can dive any time of the day and go right off the pier. They leave tanks out for you and give you a locker. I did not appreciate arriving at 5:30am (after an overnight flight) and being told in the outdoor lobby we had to wait until 2pm to check in. That is something that needs to be dealt with. While I was taking a nap on the couch, another person came up and told me she had the same experience the day before. The worst part of this hotel was the woman working at the Hertz car rental. She was incredibly rude. We had questions and every answer she gave began with a big sigh and an eye roll. NOT professional AT ALL. The car rental service was the biggest inconvenience I've come across in a long time. Aside from those logistical things, the hotel was great and we enjoyed our trip.

Rightfully unpretentious

I have been traveling the world for 35 years and stayed in some bad hotels, but I never stayed in a hotel this bad. The service was nonexistent, the best rooms were barely those of a 2 star hotel and the staff was bordering the unpleasant. It sad because, for an Island that lives off tourism, they aren't doing anything to develop it.
