I joined a group of divers traveling to Bonaire and stayed in unit C9 with another couple. This first floor unit had newly tiled bathrooms, small kitchen (range, refrigerator/microwave and dishwasher which all worked well), living/dining room and a screened porch that faces the water, Furnishings are plain but very comfortable.

Management has put in new landscaping in several areas and the overall grounds are pleasant.

A Dive Friends operation is adjacent to the property, as are two good restaurants.

We stayed in Unit A1. Great location whether you are a diver or snorkeler. Grounds kept very nice. We snorkeled everyday in front. Night snorkeled too! Eddies Restaurant is on sight for great dinners.(Music on Tues/thurs). To the opposite side is Breeze and Bites which is decent as well. We preferred Eddies. Small sandy beach area. Nice location if you are looking for sea glass.

Stayed: January 2018

Luckily at Sand Dollar, no matter which unit you stay in you are only steps away from the water and restaurants, but glad to hear you enjoyed A1. Hope you had luck finding sea glass! Always a fun pastime.

When we arrived at Sand Dollar Condos, we were placed in F-15. It was terrible. Everything (appliances, fixtures, decor, bedding, etc.) was old, worn, and dingy. Other than an upgraded bathroom (with no outlets or places to hang towels) it appeared nothing had been done to this unit in many years. If this was where we stayed for our 5-day vacation, I would have rated Sand Dollar condos 1 star.
After our first night, we went to the main office and told them we were really disappointed with the accommodations. Fortunately, they happened to have another unit available, F-11. That afternoon, they moved our bags to F-11. What a difference! This condo unit was clean and newly renovated. It was nicely decorated, appliances were new, and it contained everything we needed to enjoy the rest of our stay.
The resort itself was perfect for us. It was quiet, directly on the water, and had excellent snorkeling and diving right off the property. My husband is a SCUBA diver and he was extremely happy with the dive company (Dive Friends Bonaire) on site.
The staff at Bonaire is friendly, efficient and helpful. The front office supervisor, Rugia, was a pleasure to work with.
There are good restaurants on site, and others nearby. Offsite, we highly recommend Koraal rooftop terrace for dinner and Between 2 Buns for breakfast and lunch.
Overall, we were so happy with Sand Dollar Bonaire that we plan on spending two weeks there next year. We already gave a deposit....to reserve unit F-11.
Note: I would have rated this condo complex 5 stars if we had stayed in F-11 from the beginning.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a newly renovated room.

There are a few easy snorkelling entry points on the property, one them is a stairway with the bottom steps submerged. So easy. There are at least three fresh water showers right at the entrances to the sea. D17 got slagged a while back. Not any more. It's got new tile floors throughout, including the huge patio. The kitchen has granite countertops, a new ss sink, subway tile backsplash, and a new exhaust fan with lamp. The two bathrooms are stone, tile, granite and glass gems. Ask for a lower floor. The patios exit straight to the beach. Unless you like climbing stairs a lot. Once you get all the drapes pulled aside and the windows and patio doors opened up, the unit is bright and breezy. A/C worked fine in all the rooms (we tried them all out but after a few hours we shut them off. We used the one A/C in the bedroom at night). Two decent restaurants are literally a few hundred steps away, and a very popular deli is a very short walk away. The pool is perfectly fine but rarely used (so much snorkelling and diving to do) and has sun and shade areas at all times of the day. The entire site is super quiet and stunningly private. I'm sure everyone could find something not to their liking about the place, or their paticular condo unit (they're all furnished by independant and understandably, happy owners) but the few little glitches we enountered aren't worth mentioning.

Love your TripAdvisor name - reminds me of one of my favorite vineyards! D17 did indeed get an overhaul, as did many of the units in 2017 with more owners scheduled to make updates in 2018. Hope whatever glitches you did encounter were reported to the staff so we could fix for you? At all hotels and resorts, things can occasionally go wrong. So if at any point you feel something is not right, we really do want to know right away. This gives us an opportunity to correct the situation and enhance your enjoyment of your stay.

Oceanfront with easy access to the gorgeous Bari reef right in front. For divers, the new operator Dive Friends is efficient, clean and amazingly thoughtful for guests. (I love the little wagons to bring gear back and forth to the pier or your unit!) For snorkelers this is heaven with a protected reef right in front where we see turtles and incredible variety of fish. There is a small sandy beach with easy protected access to the water, as well as access from the pier. A ladder at the pier or concrete steps make returning easy and safe. We are in a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit, D - 11, that was recently and beautifully renovated. The kitchen is very modern, with stainless appliances and European style full extension cabinets. Bathrooms are also modern with great hot water. The screened in porch makes indoor/outdoor living comfortable and seamless. There is also a large swimming pool on the property. Internet is fast and seems to have plenty of bandwidth, with individual to this unit password protected access.

Room Tip: The condo units are individually owned. Some, like D-11, are recently renovated. Others are still in the 1980s.
