Our number one priority is the well-being, health, and safety of our guests and team.

Social distancing will be enforced, meaning all team members and hotel guests always keep 6 feet or 1.5 meters apart from each other. Hotel employees have been instructed to refrain from physical contact with guests and each other (i.e. handshakes, hugs). Hand sanitizer stations will be placed in all public areas including staff areas. All employees will be provided with proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) if necessary. All employees had to follow a COVID-19 safety/cleaning training. All employees must wash or sanitize their hands after any of the following activities: using the restroom, sneezing, touching their face, cleaning, eating, smoking, drinking, accepting items from guests, taking a break, and before a shift and throughout the shift as needed. Signage has been posted throughout the resort and the back of the house to maintain heightened awareness among our team members and guests. To remind everyone of social distancing rules, proper hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette and avoidance of face touching. Employees are instructed to stay home if they do not feel well and are instructed to contact a manager if they notice a coworker or guest displaying symptoms or complaining of a cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, sore throat or other known symptoms of COVID-19.

To ensure this standard in the “new normal” we have taken the following steps: All windows will be open to air out the room while cleaning.

What to see

Some of the most memorable creatures you can find on Bonaire are hawksbill, loggerhead and green turtles. Getting a closer look, you may be fortunate enough to spot a seahorse camouflaged in the reefs. Angelfish, tangs, sergeant majors, creole wrasse and butterfly fish also make the reef home. The fire corals, tube sponges and giant sea anemones that cling to the rocks are a surprising sight. Remember to look and not touch! Although Bonaire is not known for bigger fish, you might see some near the wrecks. Large tarpon, barracuda and several, good-sized groupers make their homes in the sunken structures.

Resort Description

Delfins Beach Resort Bonaire is located on a 200m long stretch of coastline in south-western Bonaire. 

Turtles, shrimp, blue spotted eagle rays, frog fish, octopus and many more creatures are regularly spotted on the resort's house reef. The clear warm waters are easily accessible from the shoreline in front of the resort. 

The white-washed apartments are situated directly on a white sand beach. Each has access to sunloungers and the largest pool on the island, which is also a wellness mineral pool.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the open-air restaurant or have a drink at the pool bar with a palm leaf canopy. 

Sustainable use of materials, environment-oriented applications, and efficient construction methods were employed in the recent construction of the resort. 


How to get there


  • Fly into Bonaire International Airport. 
  • The resort can arrange a private round-trip transfer for you for an additional fee (advance notice required). 
  • Alternatively, you can arrange a rental Jeep - this is advisable if you are boat diving (these depart from a nearby pier) or want to explore a plethora of alternative shore diving sites around the island. 
  • The journey will take around 10 minutes by car. 


  • Having checked out, the resort will transport you back to the airport (advance notice required, additional cost). 


  • Boat dives depart from a nearby pier, and you will need to get yourself there either by taxi (roughly $15.00 one way) or rental car - only shore diving is possible on-site at Delfins Beach Resort
  • Please note that your first two dives will always be shore dives in order to ascertain your buoyancy skills. As a result, you may be unable to join the boat dives on your first day if you have not left enough time in your schedule to complete your buoyancy dives the afternoon prior. Please take this into account when pre-booking the quantity of your boat dives.
