The apartment was big and with nice terrace. They have a nice swimming pool and good dive center. The food was delicious and the people working there very friendly!! There is good entertainment by the private beach and the beach bar. It is a place for all type of travelers.
Spent two weeks at Eden Beach our seventh visit to EB. Our last visit was 2014. Many changes since then and all for the better. It is like a new resort. The staff was very helpful and quick to solve any issues. The resort is very small which is good that everything is close and convenient. But a pain when the bar is hopping late. The rooms are very nice and have most everything you need. The few plugs are US and European, neat trick.
We stayed in the apartment. It is 2 floors, 2 bedrooms (1 king bed 2 twin beds), 2.5 baths (1/2 bath downstairs), front porch with seating and a table. Our room was located in the closest building to the beach, had wonderful views. Rooms are modern and clean. Restaurant and bar beachside and food is great. Hotel itself is central to everything. Small grocery store down the street, large 10 minutes away. Airport 10 mins and city center 5 mins by car. Hotel beach is great for snorkeling and scuba diving. Plenty of mosquitos in Bonaire, bring lots of mosquito repellant. We went during Christmas and New Years. Eden Beach had a live band, DJ, fireworks, and food and drinks for NYE. It was spectacular. Bonaire has plenty of things to do and you can arrange all activities with the activity coordinator located at the hotel. Also there is a full onsite dive center for beginners or experienced divers. Would highly recommend!!
We had app 504. Every cleaning and new towels. Great big beds. The building is well maintained. The appartements are located almost on the beach. With a terrace in front of each appartement you can sit back and enjoy the sunset from your own seat.
Room had no fridge, hair drier, coffee/tea facilities or safe. The in room literature said that we could not recharge iPads, phones, toothbrushes etc, however, our friends, who lived on the island said this was incorrect and that all round two pin sockets were standard Europe sockets and we could recharge all our equipment with adapt or plugs, which we had.Biggest problem was lack of fridge. We were told we could upgrade but the next grade, another 20 dollars a night were unavailable as they were being refurbished and the next grade up would cost almost double the original price. It would have been cheaper to buy a fridge! However, the room was a reasonable size with a large bed and plenty of storage space. Cleaners were very good although we had problems getting 2 large and 2 small towels - usually we had three towels and once only two! I got fed up with complaint and began to feel it was personal against me. In addition, on arrival, we were required to take our luggage up three floors without a lift. My husband is in his late seventies and I thought he was going to have a heart attack. My luggage was carried up by the the lady on reception. On leaving we requested help. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the beach bar staff were very good.
Over the last few years I've stayed in this place a number of times. Spacious rooms, nice location and good service is what brought me back to this place. However times have changed. Rooms the size of a shoebox? Check! Nice view of a concrete next door building? Check! Big AC right in front of the room that makes loud noise all night long? Check! Shower that is more often cold than hot? Check! Internet that works occasionally and completely stopped to work halfway our stay? Check! Horrible smell covering the hotel terrain? Check! Unnecessary early checkout around 10AM while new guest only arrive after 19PM? Check! And the worst part; does the staff seems to care and is willing to resolve any of the above? Certainly not. Good luck with running the hotel but this regular guest will find a different place on the island on my next visit.
We spent 3 days in Bonaire, coming from Aruba for a chance to experience the island. I booked Eden beach for the location to the pier to Klein Bonaire which is a $15 ferry ride. This place was packed, but as we later found out it was not from actual guests but from cruise ship day passes. We got there around 11:30 and told us our room won't be ready til 3. We went and had lunch at the Spice beach bar which was awful, we returned after lunch and our room was ready. We were taken to a very dismal remote room with barely any of the neccessities. Stay away from room 236. No safe, no fridge, no hair dryer, couldn't charge our ipad because of the electrical sockets not being compatible. I found out at check out that you had to request the hair dryer and electrical converter. The shower didn't drain and by the time the 2 of us showered it almost overflowed. It took about 2 hours to drain.The bed has 2 flat pillows and 2 god awful decorative pillows that never get washed. As well as a comforter with stains on it. The welcome letter tells you how expensive it is to use the washing machine and water so please reuse the towels- but you are charged a daily fee for electrical fees. The beach towels never seem to be washed and ready so we ended up using the same one for 3 days. The staff is very nice and the cleaning ladies have to haul all the fresh bedding up 3 flights by hand. Also the resort was at maybe 20% capacity but they would not think about putting us in a better room. This resort is all about the diving and I get that. But a few upgrades would be appreciated.
Great accommodation! Very nice personnel, but front desk...mmm not much, we had a little incident where they were not flexible, and didn't offer another solution. The main purpose of our trip was to scuba-dive and I extremely recommend the place! After being diving all day you may want to rest at a nice-comfy-relaxing place with great food and nice environment. People at Wanna Dive (diving center) were great! and willing to help us on everything. unfortunately that little incident at the front desk made me rate this place as Very Good, they could have bring us an Excellent experience if they were a bit more condescending.
Stayed 3 nights in a one bed room apartment it was fantastic really big with dinning room living room fully fitted kitchen and lovely bathroom the resort has a village feel very clean and well kept the all inclusive was fine food good nothing special but plenty full drinks are good the bars are small but where ok could be a bit full in Summer free bus in to old town really good we had a taxi back 3.50 euro and the staff very good overall the hole weekend was brilliant
To start off, it is a 3 star resort and if you take that in consideration it is fine. Located nice on the beach overlooking klein bonaire (which you need to visit and bring your snorkling equipment or rent it!) The rooms are ok, the bathroom is basic but clean! The locks on the doors are not good and due to the fact that it is an open resort i did nog like to leave things in the room. Breakfast is not cheap but good! If you want a relexed holiday do not stay here. If you di not mind the buzzz all day and part of the evenings you would like it here!
