I've stayed at Den Laman twice in the past year. One stay was in the two bedroom seaside deluxe apartment on the ground floor, and the second stay was in an oceanfront two bedroom (Tuna room). The ground floor deluxe unit is large, clean and impressive. It boasts an enormous porch and patio overlooking the beach and ocean. The sunsets... More

We’re working on getting some new pictures taken of the Seaside Deluxe unit – nothing we have does this incredible unit justice! We’ll load those and new pictures of all of the units on TripAdvisor once our scheduled photo shoot is completed. Otherwise - it looks to me like you hit all of the topics TripAdvisor readers would need to... More

One of our first impressions when entering our room at Den Laman was, "This kitchen is nicer than ours!" The rooms are spacious, very clean, and seem to be all newly updated. The location is easy to find, right off of a roundabout north of Kralendijk. There's plenty of parking and having Bonaire Dive & Adventure on the property makes... More

Dear "D.A": Thank you for your post. We hope our kitchens didn't make you too envious! They are lovely and do indeed make cooking that not easy to find breakfast meal a snap. That being said on your next visit be sure to try Between Two Buns, the deli located in the mini mall adjacent to Den Laman? They have... More

I waited many years to write this review. I have now stayed at Den Laman 10 (yes that's ten) times since 2009 so I think that I have a fairly good impression of the operation - especially as it has evolved over time. The service with the staff makes you feel like you are part of a family. They have... More

Read the reviews, pretty accurate, although I note Total truck rental has always done right by us. Nice sturdy trucks, pleasant staff. Den Laman has great modern apartments, lovely views and very helpful staff. We've had a side view (some ocean) and front (all ocean). The front was lovely, but it gets warm in the afternoon, so we might go... More

I travelled to Bonaire and stayed at Den Laman from January 11 - 18, 2014 for the purpose of diving. The condo I had was called a studio ("flounder") but it had a sitting area and a bedroom, as well as, kitchen facilities. The view was partial ocean which was quite nice when sitting on the balcony. The condo was... More

Loved this condo. Dive center right on premises. Restaurant had great food. Excellent location. We booked the studio without oceanview for two nights then upgraded. Huge difference! Pay for the oceanview. It's totally worth it.

We chose for Den Laman for our first trip to Bonaire for diving convenience, security/safety, and the ocean view. We had a great stay; it was so nice to have the Bari pier and BDA facilities nearby. We stayed in an ocean front one bedroom. The onsite Peruvian restaurant is fantastic - we ate a dinner and lunch there. We... More

One of best aspects of this lodging choice was its location. We are snorkelers, not divers, and were able to see some amazing sea life swimming just a short distance from the tiny “beach” outside the Den Laman. The divers we spoke with who were also staying there confirmed there was much to see just a short distance from shore,... More

This facility is awesome. Last time we were in Bonaire 6 years ago we stayed at Buddy Dive. We were in Buddy's older section where only part of the facilities were air conditioned.
