I have been coming to BONAIRE since 1977 before Sanddollar was built and stayed in another hotel. But, when I saw the units and what they offered as to size, convenience to shore diving (Bari Reef), facilities in each unit and how owners try to maintain their units, plus Sanddollar has the largest water frontage on the island. All of...

Stayed for a week at the Sand Dollar Condos as part of a package deal with friends. Great location, right on the beach in front of Bari Reef. Great diving right in front of Condos. There is a dock on property which uses Dive Friends Bonaire as the operator for the dive boats, rental gear, locking gear storage, tank refill,...

This location has great access to a dock using Dive Friends Bonaire for easy giant stride or stair access to the water. The condos are well apportioned and the staff is friendly. If you come in January/February the weather is nice and the water is warm. The rooms are good size.

I won't disagree with you about the weather being nice in Jan/Feb - but I do have to point out that in Bonaire, it is usually ALWAYS nice. Being at 12 latitude, our weather is fairly consistent, with seasonal changes much more moderate than northern Caribbean locations. So come whenever you can, and enjoy!

Great place, diving was easy simple and affordable, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful, and the diving was the best. Spent a week there last year and cannot wait to go back this year.

If you haven't been back yet this year then I think you will be very pleased to hear the diving is now easier then ever, since Dive Friends Bonaire took over the facilities and dive dock from Bonaire Dive & Adventure. Now divers/snorkelers can enter the water via the dock, dive ladder, or walk in from the small sandy beach...

I have been here multiple times for dive vacations, the service is prompt and courteous. Located right next to a dive shop for an easy vacation. Condos are clean, well stocked, and well decorated. Very easy to cook out of.

We stayed at D19 at Sand Dollar on a previous trip. But, we were always troubled by the fact that one of the bedrooms is not accessible from inside the condo. You have to go outside on the porch and enter through another door for that bedroom. This caused a problem to us as we had to decide which couple...

We always do our best to place guests in the units requested whenever possible. We can't guarantee, but generally speaking we are able to accommodate specific requests. Especially in cases like this, where what would be a benefit to some who are looking for a privately accessed 3rd bedroom, prefer one that is more tied into the main condo. We...

This was our second time staying at Sand Dollar Condos. We stayed in different units each time and both have been great. We had nice views of the ocean from our stay in F12.

Thanks Eileen for the kudos. We are indeed lucky to have the expanse of waterfront we do for our snorkelers and divers. You know just after you left a new species of hermit crab was discovered on Bonaire. Not just new to Bonaire - but a brand new species all together, called the Candy Striped Crab.

We found the accommodation to be very comfortable and fully furnished. Two bathrooms and a bedroom with king size bed. Views of the ocean from all rooms. Steps that take you down into the water, a shower to wash off the salt water after you come out. BUT....I will NEVER come back here to this island because of the horrible...

Dear Sally: We're so sorry to hear the celebratory atmosphere on Bonaire surrounding the new year was not to your liking. Not everyone who lives here enjoys it either, but asking the Antilleans not to enjoy their fireworks would be akin to cancelling the 4th of July in the US – where the fireworks generally go off before, on and...

We stayed here as a family of three. Our unit was particularly outdated, but the resort overall is also. The pool wasn't open when we were there, but I wouldn't have swam in it anyway. It was dirty and small. The restaurant was closed early and didn't offer many options. We ate at Buddy's next door. The reef was amazing...
