Resort Description

All condominiums are self-contained, featuring private porches or balconies facing the ocean and the nearby island of Klein Bonaire. Interior windows and doors are fully screened and porches and balconies have lounge chairs, seating and tables.

There's an on-site management team for your convenience and all units have their own personal WiFi connection for security and speed. There is one digital safe per unit, large enough to accommodate most laptops and small cameras.

The on-site dive center, PADI 5 Star Dive Friends Bonaire, is easily accessible from all condo units and offers a full service dive-dock, drive-up tank station, rinse tanks and gear storage available 24/7.

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.

Dive Friends Bonaire @ Sand Dollar, in continuous operation since 2002, is a PADI IDC, recipient of the Green Star Award and a 100% Project Aware partner.

The dive center is conveniently located between Den Laman Condominiums and Sand Dollar Condominiums (at the roundabout north of Kralendijk and provides a handy spot for accessing the great dive sites to the north of Bonaire.

The island is renowned for its shore diving and Dive Friends Bonaire offers a house reef for you to enjoy, in addition to regular boat access to Klein Bonaire, the flat, small, uninhabited island off the central west coast of Bonaire.
