Cap Don's has been a Bonaire staple forever. It's showing a little wear here & there but overall it's still an excellent dive resort. Their motto of 'diving freedom' is true. They treat you like adults who know what you're doing & don't have a lot of rules & restrictions which was exactly what we were looking for. If you... More

We have been visiting Bonaire since 1993 and have always stayed at Captain Don's Habitat. At least 10 visits, maybe even 15. The rooms are always comfortable and the staff friendly. When we stayed there a few weeks ago we found that our usual ocean view room had been renovated. A completely new bathroom and a wall mounted TV as... More

I just returned from another stay at Capt. Dons Habitat, my favorite place to stay while visiting Bonaire. The week was incredible, as usual, and was my 4 th time staying here. This was my first time staying in a 2 bedroom bungalow. The room was clean, large living area, great outdoor covered space. The diving from shore was wonderful,... More

The diving was amazing! The dive masters and staff ( Roger, Martin, Captain Crunch, etc) know this region well, and they'll take you to the best spots with lots of sea beings to see: sea horses, puffer fish, box fish, tarpon, octopus, spotted eels, moray eels, cuttlefish, turtles, barracuda, shrimps, nudi bronchs, etc. at the resort, it's one of the...

My Husband and I dove with Habitat for 10 boat dive. We also did 2 shore dives off the dock at Habitat. They have lockers available for gear with an area to hang your suit. I don’t believe anything would dry if left in the lockers. We only left our fins, regs, mask, and weights the rest we took back... More

Spent a week diving the whole island if Bonaire, and found that some of the best diving was off the end of the dock. First time to Bonaire and I absolutely loved it!! Captain Don's is a great place to stay, if you want to dive. The facilities are a little dated, but the staff was excellent. Took a couple... More

Please read this entire review before drawing any conclusions--it is truly a mixed bag. The "average" rating is based on a combination of my dive experience (both February and August, 2014), and the accommodations (August, 2014). If I were rating the dive experience only, it would be a 5 star "excellent" rating without question. If I were rating the accommodations/service... More

I've been to Captain Don's 3 times already. Its really geared toward divers. I have never had a bad experience with the staff and always find them very helpful. I found it strange to read reviews with people who had much different experiences. The rooms are not the best when it comes to how in shape they are, yes some... More

Just got back from Captain Don's. It was a great experience. The room was clean with a very nice view. The staff was nice , all the dive masters were very good, and the dive shop was set up for easy diving. Unite Airlines lost my luggage with my dive gear, the dive shop let me use all their gear...

This was my first time at Capt. Dons and Bonaire. My new husbands second time, he was here about 20 years ago. Our room was beautiful. The only complaint I have is that we made coffee every morning and when I requested more I was refused! House keeping was fine but when I went to look through the phone book... More
