We have been staying at Sand Dollar for several years and it has never disappointed. The condos are comfortable and well appointed. I would also note that we have not found the mosquitos we have encountered elsewhere on Bonaire . Perhaps the best thing about SD is the staff. They get a five. Always friendly and helpful. I don't know...

Dear Lee and Susan: You made the day for many of the staff who were made aware of your post. Most have been with us for many, many years, and put their heart and sole into their jobs. So nice for them to see it recognized. We're also glad to hear the comment about the mosquitoes. We’d like to take...

We came to dive and Sandollar condominiums did not disappoint. Very accommodating, very convenient. We would come back! Love the 24 hour access to multiple tank exchanges on the island. I would recommend to divers.

Thanks Tammy for your post. If you loved the access to the tanks before, you will be even happier to know that guests of Sand Dollar now have access to the tanks on the dive dock and use of the dive dock previously managed by Bonaire Dive & Adventure. Dive Friends Bonaire took over this facility with BD & A...

Do not ever stay in F-14, it is terrible, in terrible condition. Not a penny spent it on since it was built. The owner should be ashamed and this unit should not be rented at all until it is updated and repaired. I would recommend that you insist on seeing pictures of the unit you will be staying in or...

We regret we were unable to move you to one of the more updated units, of which they are many. There was no refusal to send you pictures of the unit, it is just not something we generally do since we not guarantee specific units. The Manager has however instructed the reservations staff go ahead and share pictures in the...

Great dock for diving and boat dives. Close to food pool and plenty of diving. Rented a car from Avis low cost vehicle with air is all you need unless you want to buy a car. Lots of yard art such as donkeys, goats iguanas and flamingos. Very friendly area

Went to Bonaire on my 1st dive vacation, coordinated by DivePoint Scuba of Stevens Point, WI. Very reasonable, comfortable, and an excellent location for accessing the various dive sites. Don't expect the 5 star experience of Carribean all-inclusives (remember, you're here to dive) but the personnel at Sand Dollar and Dive Friends made me feel at home and like a...

Just North of the town center. You definitely need a car to stay here and get around (and you want one anyway with all of the short diving). Had a very nice one bedroom with a full kitchen. Bathroom was clean and up to date. There is a point for you to jump in the water for snorkeling here. Would...
