I've stayed at Sand Dollar 3 or 4 other times because its location is just right for us, the snorkeling, both day and night is fantastic and for the most part it is kept in good condition. We stayed in B5 which we were told was just renovated and it was in good condition with a comfortable master bed and...

Thank you for being one of our valued repeat guests. The owners of B5 would like to thank you for the nice note and bottle of wine you left them thanking them for your enjoyable stay! That was a unique gesture and they were very touched. We cannot imagine who told you that the owners had cut back on any...

Agree with GusW's review of the resort and definitely with sandybaham's review of E11. This is a condo resort, and while Sand Dollar management assured us they have guidelines for each condo, they are obviously only in a position of influence with the condo owners. They were never quite able to explain how units are assigned...we were unable to switch...

Thank you for your very thorough posting. As you mentioned in the post, E11 has been sold, and the new owners will be removing it from the rental pool in April so that they can completely renovate the unit. You also note that room requests cannot always be honored. This is indeed true - no property can 100% guarantee your...

We have found Sanddollar to be the perfect fit for our Bonaire vacations. On our trips, we are looking for the best diving available, clean accomodations, a peaceful atmosphere, and a way to conveniently prepare our own meals if we like. You can't beat the diving available at Sanddollar and while some units are dated, we have found a favorite...

Our thanks for the nice post. I do want to point out that guests booking with our reservations offices or with their favorite travel agent can request units with a screened in porch if that is their preference. The majority of the units do in fact have screened porches, so accommodating this request is not hard. Luckily for those who...

Great diving from the pier! Use the dive shop next door; experienced and well stocked. Dive masters were excellent! Condo was spacious and well equipped. Plenty of room and the kitchen had everything required.

Ok the scuba and snorkeling were amazing but the "resort" had a crappy swimming pool, no activities, music or swim up bar. The restaurant was only open a couple of nights. Furnishings in the condo were dated. Staff was nice, friendly. WiFi was spotty. Not luxurious.

Dear Beckini: We are glad to hear you enjoyed the diving and snorkeling at Sand Dollar on your recent vacation, but do regret that your expectations of the property were not in line with what Sand Dollar is all about. We have been very careful NOT to market Sand Dollar as a “Resort”, specifically so our guests do not expect...

The location was good, water and dive or snorkel access good. The condos are a crapshoot tho, Out of 4 couples ours was the only one that was bad as far as comfort and amenities, the others ranged from OK to very nice. We stayed in E11, miserably hard bed (I slept on the sofa for 2 weeks, not very...

The management at Sand Dollar is working diligently with the owners of the units on the level of standards and creating some uniformity so that all of our guests get an equally comfortable, well-appointed unit. However, since each unit is individually owned and decorated, there will always be some level of differentiation. This we welcome, as it is the individual...

Here is the story that makes my review "terrible". The unit we had, was on sale and during our stay a couple wanted to see it. I didn't object, because the manager approached me and asked. It didn't collide with our schedule neither - we were diving that time. The problem was next day - we were not diving and...

Bonaire is in the final stages of completing a new sewage treatment system that is piping wastewater from the many commercial properties all along the seaside, (whereas in the past we all utilized septic tanks) and the project has not been without issues. It was critically needed for the future health of the reefs and island in general, but we...

There is one complaint that we had with this complex. THE LACK of a nice pool and Eddy's Restaurant which are advertised as on site amenities.

Convenient location on the water just north of town. We rented three units for seven people and the decor and quality of the air conditioning varied greatly. The front desk was friendly and helpful but the pool was murky and housekeeping (2 times/week) was basic. If you are looking for a luxury stay go elsewhere, but if you go to...
