    Perfect holiday apartment in Bonaire
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveler
    • One-Bedroom Apartment with Ocean View
    • Stayed 7 nights
    • Submitted from a mobile device

    There wasn't anything I didn't like. On a couple of occasions there was limited hot water for the shower, but considering the hot weather I wasn't too fussed.

    The owner, John, was extremely friendly and helpful throughout my stay. The apartment was fairly modern and had everything you would want, minus an oven (but who needs an oven on holiday?). The ocean view apartment had a nice balcony with a lovely view of Klein Bonaire. The location was perfect, with a 5 minute drive to the centre and 1000 steps (in opposite directions).

    We loved our stay at Divers Paradise very much. The appartement with ocean view on the first floor is perfect. It has a great veranda with comfortable sofas and the rest of the appartement is spaceous, comfortable and clean. The bed sleeps perfect and the bedroom is equipped with an airco which suits for the whole appartment. The appartement is located close to nice beaches in a quit part of Bonaire about a 5-10 min drive from Kralendijk by scooter or car. What makes this place very special is the owner John and his dog Luna. John is a very friendly and helpful guy and a terrific diver. We consider him as our friend. We took some diving lessons from him and he made us enthousiastic for this new world under water. Thanks to John our stay at Bonaire was perfect! Nienke and Menno Kielman.

    Nothing really- having our own space at a very reasonable price without all the restrictions of a resort. Not on the water (but ocean accommodations in Bonair are very pricey)and if we had not booked late, would’ve preferred an ocean view.-maybe- nice to have no stairs.

    Having an’outside room’. John the owner was great offering beach chairs, a cooler and information for the area.

    Very warm and instructive welcome. John has actually been waiting for us - plane has been delayed. He equipped us with snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and very practical map of Bonaire. The apartment has been spacious and clean - cleaning 1xweek. The location central in Bonaire, however you need a car. John assisted with the rental. Car parking in from of the door to the apartment. Well equipped kitchen. All good.

    Diver's Paradise offers everything you need for a fun and enjoyable dive trip to Bonaire.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • One-Bedroom Apartment with Garden View
    • Stayed 15 nights

    You will need your own transportation to enjoy your stay in Diver's Paradise.

    Diver's Paradise is a winner for divers looking for the most bang for their buck for their dive vacation or outdoor adventure on Bonaire. Easy to find and conveniently located to most dive operators and many of the resorts on the north end of Kralendijk, it is well positioned for diving any dive site on Bonaire. Clean accommodations with a full kitchen (no oven) with a comfortable bed configured to your preference (either king or two twins) and a sleeper sofa. Like many other apartments on Bonaire, Diver's Paradise offers a common fresh water rinse tank to rinse your gear after diving. Features that Diver's Paradise offers that we have not typically gotten in similar properties on Bonaire include attached enclosed private wet and dry storage for scuba tanks and equipment. As the utility room/storage room is located on your covered porch, and is lighted and drained, it can double as your own changing room to keep wet stuff out of the apartment for the street level (garden view rooms) All the rooms also have attached private off street parking located right in front of your apartment so there is no need for jockeying for the close parking spots like at most of the other apartments and resorts. One less headache when you are coming back from a dive and just want to quickly get stuff rinsed and stored and nap or grab a bite to eat.

Nothing was too much trouble and he was very helpful and full of advice and recommendations - where to eat, good places to dive and even sight seeing on the island. in the planning of the trip John was fantastic. He helped recommend dive centres (dive friends was spot on for what we wanted) as well as organising car hire (Bonaire rent a car - another spot on recommendation).

    Internet service was sometimes down or poor - but that could have been island wide! Internet service improved a lot when John installed an extender for me. One other small niggle was that I didn't have hot water for most of my stay (though with the hot climate, cold showers were kinda welcome!). It was fixed by the end of my stay.

    Nice large, clean, quiet apartment, separate storage for dive gear, individual parking space, well equipped kitchen. Very nice owner: very friendly and helpful, and there to fix any problems when they were encountered. John even brought me some Thanksgiving turkey dinner on the night of my arrival so that I wouldn't need to go out for dinner! It was good turkey too! Thanks John!

    First of all we have to mention the very friendly and deeply commited manager and owner in one person called John. After a kind welcome after 9:30pm he showed us the very clean appartment and recommend some places to get something good to eat and drink at this late time of day and helped us out with some coffee and power-adapters. Everything inside the appartment was clean and smelled fresh cleaned. The appartment has comfortable furnitures and well equipped kitchen area with all you need. The fridge was clean and filled with fresh cold caribian water. There are 2 aircondition systems, one in the bedroom and one in the living room which works quiet. We slept very well in the new american beds and the appartment was very quiet and good isolated. We went snorkeling and diving most of the time and manager John was always helpfull, never in a hurry and recommend some of his favourite places and dive/snorkel sites on bonaire. He also borrows me 2 of his with personal notes painted books about dive and snorkel sites Bonaire. There is a small private "diving equipment drying" room outside infront of the appartment which you reach over the private patio. The appartments are fresh renovated (John took the appartments over 6 month ago) and located next to the most beautiful reefs we have ever seen. You find dive bases in close range to the appartmens. If you only do 1-2 dives a day we recommend GoooDive base with fair prices (12$ tank and weight or 19$ unlimited refill a day or 95$ for unlimited diving for 6 days) and modern refill station/tanks. Bonaire is definitly a divers/snorklers paradise ! During our 4 week holiday we stayed at 4 different appartments and we liked this one most. If the mosquitos like you use OFF Deep Woods 25% DEET and nothing will bite you. We never met such an open-hearted and helpful manager before.

    Shortly after booking this apartment, John contacted me asking if there was anything he could help with. He answered many questions and even dropped by the local dive shop to gather more information for me. The facilities are perfect for divers, with a storage area right beside our parking space, which was adjacent to our suite. The property is very close to "Dive Friends", which offers a 10% discount to those staying at Divers Paradise. John stopped by a few times to see that all our needs were met. We were surprised that the hot water from the solar system was still available up to 10 PM, so that exceeded our expectations. When John asked what improvements we would like to see, we were hard pressed to think of any. When my BCD broke, John loaned an essential part to me and saved two days of diving for me. We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay at Divers Paradise.
