We stayed in the black durgon Inn for 8 days (march 2013) . This bed and breakfast is price/quality the best you find on the island. You get a clean and nice room with daily breakfast for a very good price. The sea-front breakfast area and garden with jetti is amazing. You can rent dive gear for a very reasonable... More

We just returned from a scuba dive vacation to Bonaire, staying at the Black Durgon Inn for the first time. We decided to stay here based on other TripAdvisor comments. If you need a fancy room at a place with lots of frills and hand holding, the Inn probably isn't for you. But if you're looking for a value hotel... More

Before our trip I did some research on the Black Durgon Inn and read many positive comments from previous guests. Many of the others that were there were repeat guests. We too enjoyed the smaller intimate atmosphere which they provide. Although we aren't divers we still enjoyed the snorkeling right from their pier. There's not much better than sipping your... More

I have just returned from a family trip to the Black Durgon Inn, where I have stayed over 30 times in 11 years. It offers basic accommodation which is very clean, each room has air conditioning and en-suite shower and toilet facilities. The diving facilities are excellent, with 2 house reefs just off the end of the jetty. The breakfasts... More

My girlfriend and I went on two weeks vacations to Bonaire the past February. We actually stayed at Divers Paradise which is a complex of apartments also managed by Black Durgon’s Inn one block away from it. Therefore, we also had access to Black Durgon facilities. The apartment was great! It was very clean, neat and simple. The kitchen was... More

I ditto the previous reviewer (SofiaReiziger) so I won't go into many details. We've stayed at the sister lodging, Diver's Paradise Apartments, just a short but nice walk down the street. We will continue to go back to Black Durgon as we find it extremely convenient & affordable for diving. The grounds are very well kept, clean and beautiful. Al... More

This is the best small and inexpensive hotel to stay, especially if you are a diver or snorkeler. The ocean in front of the Inn is full of fish and Small Wall is just a few kicks away. We have stayed numerous times at Black Durgon Inn during the last 10 years. It is an ocean-front resort. The bedrooms are... More

Black Durgon Inn is a wonderful place to stay for someone who loves the ocean, snorkels or dives. It isn't a luxury hotel, so don't expect it. The owner is fair and honest. He will make sure you are safe and take care of your diving needs. The dock is a magnificent place to dive off of. Even if this... More
