Experience Bonaire and Buddy Dive Resort. An unhurried, unspoiled natural paradise offering spectacular sunsets, gentle breezes and crystal clear, turquoise waters. Buddy's is a resort where you can DIVE DIVE DIVE, take part in a multitude of activities or just sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. At Buddy Dive, we're known for our casual atmosphere, personable staff, spacious accommodations and a dive operation that has something for every diver: comfortable boats, complete rental and retail center, exceptional staff, and a unique "Drive Thru" with a two-lane air/nitrox fill station. No matter which apartment you are staying in, you're never further than a giant stride away from our popular and lively house reef which is perfect for diving and snorkeling, day and night.

I wanted to answer my own question, after spending 8 days there. My studio as perfect for me. There is a little dining table for two in the kitchen, and another table for two outside on the patio. There was a window in the bedroom (I think it was #610?) the kitchen as not unusually tiny, and it had everything I needed to do some cooking and keep some good food ( go to the big Dannish supermarket, well worth the trip and lots of great produce, even organic foods!). They did not provide paper towels in the kitchen though, so I had to use their towels for a spill....
If you feel that you'd like to have a cough to hang out on, then you would need to rent the one or two bedroom units.
I felt very safe, though I did keep my door locked to be careful. Had to rig a small towel in the window of the shower, for a curtain, as I realized that other rooms had windows from which someone could look in to mine, if I showered with the lights on!
I met lots of very friendly people, no trouble finding buddies to dive with.
