We stayed for 1 week on Bonaire at Captain Don's Habitat. While we are all experienced divers I was disappointed in some of the dive crew in that they did not help divers on and off the boat, into their heavy equipment etc, without asking and then sometimes without a lot of grace. Some of the divers were older and... More

This resort is very well known on the Island especially with divers. A lot of apartments, some of them have Sea view. For me this is a must if you stay on an Island like Bonaire. We had a junior suite with a view on the Sea and klein Bonaire. The staff is friendly and correct. The breakfast is great... More

Captain Don's Habitat was one of the best resorts I have ever dived at. The rooms, and amenities were VERY nice but the selling point for me would be the dive shop. They went above and beyond to ensure that our group was safe and well entertained.

Captain Don's is an ideal resort if you would like to have a relax vacation with diving freedom. You can dive whenever you like, wherever you like. Boat dives are leaving 3 times a day. It is nice to rent a car and also explore Bonaire itself. Bonaire is a beautiful island. Also for the people who aren't diving the... More

The people are friendly, the rooms are clean, and the facility for diving is set up perfectly. Renting gear is simple and priced well, though the food at the restaurant is expensive. Or room had a kitchen which we used frequently, but don't count on a microwave. We were a family of four, traveling with a group totaling 16, and... More

Came with the wife along with a dive group of 18. We upgraded to a ocean view junior suite. The room was very comfortable with a nice porch to enjoy drinks or coffee and look upon the ocean. The bathroom was not luxurious but adequate. The rooms were clean and the maid service was very good and timely. We really... More

Tried a bungalow for this semi-annual stay and it was just right for 3 divers. Unit was very clean (thanks to the maid) and everything worked. Big porch for gear drying and meals. Not too much of a walk to the dive boats.

I have visited Don's twice, both times were incredible. The rooms are nice, comfortable, and private. Services provided are excellent, and easily accessible. I would reccomend this to anyone, not just scuba divers.

Although there were certainly non-divers on the property, this is a hotel that is really geared for divers. The rooms are perfectly fine, and most patios are oriented to the pool area. The pool itself could be a little larger and nicer. The dive operation is very good, with a friendly staff. I'd prefer if they did double tank dives,... More

I booked this resort based on a friends experience and I would probably book again if I were to return to Bonaire. The prices were fair and the grounds were nice. I have never been able to book an ocean view room at a 'decent' price - this was fantastic. (As a side note - a lot of the resorts/places... More
