We stayed at Coral Paradise next door and used the diving facilities at Captain Don’s for a week. Captain Don’s motto is “total diving freedom”. They are set up really well for shore diving or boat diving. I give them a four-star, because they are not really set up for inexperienced divers, which was my family at the time. They... More

Just returned from a 10 day holiday at Captain Don's and can't praise them enough. Staff were all really helpful and the dive staff went above and beyond to help us out. The tank system was brilliant just pick up and go. The house reef was excellent and I'd reccomend the night diving there too! Not too far from town... More

Awesome, freedom diving. Truly grab and go system they have, no need to sign or anything. Food is pretty good, and it's close to many other places so one has variation. Bonaire diving is all pretty shallow, but still a lot to see because the whole island and it's waters are protected.

So far, I stayed at the hotel twice. Since I was on the island for business both times, in can't rate the divinig facilities. The suites are excellent. For just a few dollars more you get a microwave, nice spacy room and a beautiful ocean view. The regular rooms are not as good as one might expect. A little shabby,... More

Diving freedom is truly embraced at Captain Don's Habitat. The diving is wonderful, the dive masters are awesome and the accommodations are pleasant. Over the years, the Habitat has undergone many changes for the better and the staff remain as friendly as always. The accommodations range from a 'typical hotel room' surrounding the pool and sand volleyball court (have never... More

Spent a week diving while staying at Captain Don's Habitat. It was set up very well for diving. The dive operation is set up very well; and our boat captain for the boat dives was great. The restaurant was very nice. The rooms are nice for diving. The room I was in was two bed, two bath with a kitchen.... More

We were in Bonaire the last week of February 2014. We booked through Maduro Dive Fanta-Seas. They took care of everything-room, Nitrox,boat dive set up, rental truck. Excellent job!! We went as 2 couples and we rented one of the Villas on the north side of the complex. Our accommodations were exactly as described. We had housekeeping everyday and they... More

The best thing about this resort is the dive team and dive facilities. The tanks are grab and go, making this a truly divers' paradise operation. The doc also directly leads to the reef, with an underwater rope tied with bottles as an underwater guide to the resort diving dock. The rooms are your basic dive flare, which are adequate,... More

No their furniture is not in the lastest style, but this is absolutely marvellous for diving and snorkeling! You'll find happy people here, enjoying the pool, the great beds, a fine American breakfast & a super sea as you step straight from Captain Don's Pier into the coralreef. I found myself swimming in what felt like an aquarium in a... More

We are snorkelers, not divers, so cannot comment on the diving facilities. We weren't expecting luxury, but the room (deluxe ocean view) was grimy and badly in need of renovation. The worst thing about the hotel is the front desk staff...they were unable or unwilling to help with any requests for information or assistance. They couldn't even check our return... More
