Eden Beach Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loved this place! Great people and good food at the sand bar and in the restaurant. Its the very place where you catch the ferry to Klein Bonaire, and where the best dive operation (Wannadive) is located on site. The two bedroom condos are perfect- clean, spacious, and with a wonderful complete kitchen (and view). We stayed for one week and thoroughly enjoyed the entire time. Only problem was the WIFI kept going in and out- but they said they were going to fix it. You get the combination to the dive locker and can get tanks of air whenever you please! There is a real beach at the resort, something other resorts in Bonaire do not have, and there is good snorkeling (if thart's all you are doing) right at the pier. Plus, the ferry to Klein Bonaire is also at the resort's pier- and great snorkeling and beaches are 10 minutes away on Klein (little) Bonaire. Would go back in an instant. The island is a paradise!

I've stayed here twice and both times it was super easy and the staff were great. It's a chill vibe and a safe place to relax after long days of diving. I'm a solo female traveller, so that's important to me. The food is good and I love the hammocks on the balcony rooms. They're perfect if I want solo time instead of being on the beach, even though the beach is never too crowded. Edwin (their massage therapist at the spa) gives the best back and shoulder massage I've ever had. He's fantastic! It was the perfect thing to have booked for the day after I arrived and I was sore from traveling. The rooms with the little kitchenettes are great and the grocery store is just down the street. I always rent a bike for the week, so it's easy to get to. This place is easy and reliable. Not fancy, but always clean and that really matters to me. I'd recommend it for sure.

We were recently in Bonaire for a cruise port of call, and just wanted a beach with facilites to have a stress free day. Eden provides this and then some. The service was excellent, food and drinks great, and the prices were very reasonable. We would definitely return for another trip.

This was our second trip to Eden Beach Resort, and the decision this time to upgrade to a two bedroom apartment was a good one. For our first trip, we selected a one bedroom, which was really just a hotel room with an outdated kitchen. We are not divers and Bonaire and all the hotels cater to divers, we go because it is quiet, peaceful and generally not very crowded. This year, there were cruise ships in port six out of seven days, but while other reviewers did mention cruise ship passengers at the resort, they were not there in large numbers. The water taxi picked them up at the dock and dropped them off, and in the middle of the day there was much more activity, but in general, the hotel handled it very well. There was one day when service was tough to get, lunch took about 30 minutes to arrive and bartenders, and beach servers lost track of things. The water is pristine, and the water taxi is located right at the resort allows you to come and go to Klien Bonaire snorkel there or right in front of the hotel. Since there are no beaches on Bonaire, the beach area is just that an area with trucked in sand, chairs and a bar. Expectations are important for Bonaire, just remember this is a divers paradise, services, and accommodations are catered to divers. Some complaints about Eden, about two years ago a beach club opened next door and on Friday nights the noise is significant, techno/dance music. The service at the bar is average, it depends on who was there, it was clear that the bartenders were soccer fans, and when they had a game on, the game got most of the attention. It was actually comical to watch, people trying to get there attention and simply just being ignored. The hotel itself is average, the outside is designed nicely, the inside they have let slide. For example, or refrigerator did not work, we went to the lobby, explained and they said no problem, we are on it. The next day we had to go back and remind them, but again it is Bonaire, not NYC. The rooms were clean, comfortable, the bathrooms were new, and the mattress is of good quality.

We came to Bonaire to dive. Chose a smallish hotel, size we prefer that had diving shop on site. We paid $220 US per night - room only, more than hotel, probably a 2/3 star, is worth, as the bar and pool looked reasonable for hotel size. NOW...Imagine our surprise and disappointment to discover each day a 3000 to 4000 people cruise ship docks in town. The hotel allows beach seats and use of pool to criuse people at a cost. They bring them in large buses. They stay the day. Also you can stay anywhere else on island and use hotel's facilities for $10 US a day. They also held a Dutch Comedy Show on an assembled stage on the beach one night. The seating was approximately 200. These people paid $30 US. SO now both day and night is being ruined. So what are we paying for? A basic room that's quite old. The bed is reasonably comfortable. Pillows need to be upgraded. Bathroom towels old and scratchy. I'd use for cleaning rags at home. We had no hot water for 2 days..this they did fix and a dripping bathroom tap that they tried to fix. Didn't! Said they return but didn't. They provide no coffee or tea in kitchenette. There was no shampoo in bathroom and soap slither so small..why bother. Luckily I carry my preferred brand. Diving fairly good. I'd suggest before staying on island you find out if your hotel rents out it's facilities to the cruise ships, which arrive daily.

Just returned from a week long dive trip staying at Eden Beach Resort. The resort has everything you need including WannaDive on site. We had a 2 bedroom apt. with 2.5 baths, kitchen and lovely covered patio. Service was excellent as well as friendly and helpful staff. Pool, lovely bar area, restaurant, own pier and nice resort reef. Access to tanks any time of day for shore diving. Don't hesitate to stay at this resort in Bonaire.

We visited from the cruise port and rented some chairs for the day and enjoyed the bar area and beach. Have to say, bar service could be improved and hotel isn actually losing money. We had to flag down a waiter to order drinks (were Wanting to spend money at your resort) gave the waiter our order and he forgot about it, had to go find him and he apologized and then took 30 mins to get 1st order this all took an hour. We would of spent more money had someone been willing to serve us. Waiter seemed very overwhelmed with the amount of people he had to take care of. Was just him and a bartender at bar. Your missing out on $$$ ... overall we really enjoyed our time there. Would look into coming to just stay there for vacation possibly.

This hotel is dirty. When you look around, they haven't taken care of it. There's piles of dirt and dust in most corners. The pool was ... Some kind of green/brown shade. Definitely didn't attract me to get in. The room was so incredibly moist. The walls and windows were wet all the time. And it smell so bad like mildew. It was disgusting. I couldn't even sleep at night due to the heavy mildew smell. The breakfast buffet is really limited in options. Definitely not worth the price. They don't have toiletries in the room. 1 type of soap in a dispenser and you need to use that to wash your hands, hair and body. Efficient but not comfortable. Our double bed room was provided with 2 twin beds. I suddenly felt like I was back in college sleeping on tiny beds with a roommate. At night, only half the hotel had lights. The other was just completely dark.... You are NOT getting your money's worth at this place. It's more like a motel quality place.

First it should be noted that Bonaire is not a luxury location - We were very comfortable at the Eden Beach Resort. We were only able to obtain a standard room on the second floor. One group of friends had a king suite and the other group got a condo type room on two levels with two bedrooms. All of us were comfortable in our spaces. Our room was very neat and clean if a bit small. The shower was GREAT! Considering we went to Bonaire for diving (as did 99% of all other tourists) we did not spend much time in our room. The pool was nice and the Spice Bar was a frequent hang out for us. Drinks and food were affordable, food menu was a bit boring but good. Service was somewhat slow, but that seems to be common among every establishment on the island. Just have to get used to living on Island time! The main restaurant had a good menu and Ensley (sp?) was wonderful to us! Such a nice group of employees there! On our first night I tripped over some broken pavement (also common throughout the island) and landed on my nose. Once news travelled to the staff I was immediately approached with offers of assistance. They called an ambulance to come check me out. Every day I was approached by managers and staff and asked about my well being. They were truly concerned (and not like in the US where they were just worried I would sue) about me! The general manager even came in just to speak to me. She checked on me daily as did the bar manager and many other staff. There is an onsite dive shop for any rental needs you may have, they provide weights, a wash station, outdoor showers, gear room to hang your wet suits and BCs, and unlimited access to air tanks round the clock! The dive shop closes around 5:30 but each guest is given a code to access the key to open the tank storage area - no waiting to pick up tanks - EVER! Early morning dives and night dives are never a problem. The dive shop offers boat dives two to three times a day and I can highly recommend taking them. They will load your tanks on the boat and assist with any set up you need, also will help you into gear and out of gear before and after the dives. Cost is $25 per trip - well worth it! There is loud music coming from the Coco Beach Hotel next door on the weekend that goes quite late so bring some earplugs if you have trouble sleeping in noisy places. There are no elevators and you may have to carry your own bags depending on the time of day you show up and staffing.
