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

I was with a group of twenty-five divers who stayed at Captain Dons in February 2015. The resort is excellent for divers! The dive masters were very helpful and friendly. The boats go out three times a day and every effort is made to accommodate the requests of the divers. The food at the restaurant is good and the rooms... More

I went with my two sons to Captain Don's on a trip organized by our local dive shop, along with 25 others. Some of the group had been going for 20 years to Captain Don's, obviously liking it. I had read some of the negative reviews here and was a bit concerned. But we had a great trip. The resort... More

My 6 days diving at Capt Don's exceeded my expectations in almost every way. My room had been recently modernised and was great. Very nice en-suite; comfortable bed; and big shaded balcony. The wifi in the room - and at most places in the resort - was quite good, especially if you were a little jet lagged and woke up... More

My sister and I were fortunate to have visited Bonaire 2 times in 2014 and both times we were customers of Habitat. The resort is perfect and has everything needed to have a great vacation. Their staff is very friendly and accommodating. They work very hard to ensure their customers are comfortable and have a good time. The restaurant is... More

Wow, been going to Don's every couple of years for awhile now. Was always one of our favorite places. Found out that Don actually passed away in 2014. Not sure if that is why, but the difference in the resort is striking. Other have commented on the rude staff, from the moment you check in (just rude, ignoring you etc)... More

this is probably the best hotel in Bonaire for divers: you get a pretty good choice of boat trips to all diving spots in Bonaire and Klein Bonaire : every day you may have three trips at 8. a.m. , three at 11., and again at 2p.m., of course depending on the number of divers having signed up. Snorkelers may... More

Close to the crystal clear seawater of Kralendijk this is a perfect place to stay. Very private with it's nice bungalows and villas. Very good service and personal attention. Especially for divers with all the facilities. The place divers would like to be in Divers Paradise Bonaire

We recently spent 16 days at Captain Don's. The rooms were nice and well maintained and the reef just off its beach is superb. The restaurant is convenient and the food was not bad, but we ended up going out for most of our meals after we got to know the town a little better. The problem at Capt. Don's... More

Just got back(Jan 31st) from staying at Captain Don's Habitat for a week of SCUBA diving in Bonaire. Room was real nice, along with restaurant and bar. The dive operation was pretty good. Good boats for diving from. I would recommend they re-vamp the lockers for holding your SCUBA gear so air can flow more freely, but not a big... More
