Hotels in Bonaire

The resort is great for those serious about diving (and even those who aren’t). The 77 rooms are actually small apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units, most with a full kitchen or kitchenette.

The hotel is like staying at your fabulous wealthy uncle’s villa—except he’s out of town. Four of the five breezy rooms face the brick-lined pool; breakfast is from 8 to 10 a.m., and the front desk is staffed until noon; after that, it’s all yours.

The 10-room inn is run by a young Dutch couple, Martin Franken and Nicole Roomer. It’s not much to look at from the road, but there’s an inviting pool in the courtyard, lounging space under the thatched-roof bar, and bright rooms accented in yellows, reds, and greens.
