Second time here on a dive vacation with a big group and we'll be back. The junior suites are nice...ocean view, king size bed, intermittent wifi. Great breakfasts daily with omelets/eggs to order by the friendly cook. Bartenders and dive shop staff were always friendly and funny! Diving right off the dock was great. Nice reef with plenty to see... More

This's place clearly was superb moon's ago, but now has lost it. Currently scruffy and ill kept and shoddy. For example You go to reception to pay your final bill the night before an 0600 departure. The receptionist says that's $3.75. Your mind goes "What?" Sweetly you ask about four dinners, numerous coffees etc?? Oh she says you have to... More

We have stayed here on business now eight times. The bungalows are really tired. They are clean but late 80's. The Oceanside rooms are much better. I must tell you the staff are hard to work with. Service is not a highlight.

I'm thinking it used to be better when capt Don was alive. We had a group package and they shorted us boat dives, the tanks leaked due to bad o rings and overall bad maintenance. The head guy at the dive shop was extremely difficult to wirk with, the restaurant added an extra $80 dollar tip to one of my... More

This is NOT the place to stay or dive. My wife, some friends and I were there for a full week. The bungalow had roaches inside and out - large roaches. I The diving was good, the dive staff left a lot to be desired. For our very first dive of the week, the Divemaster took us DOWN current on... More

I'm told by friends that it has declined since Captain Don passed. My complaints are minor. The room was cept clean, but shower gel ran out. I mentioned it to the front desk after housekeeping was finished with the room. When I went back to the room, they filled it with shampoo. This was corrected the next day without having... More

Bonaire is a place where you stop and enjoy the moment. The water is perfect turquoise, the dive masters make sure you spot the all the amazing sea creatures. Your dive buddy is likely to be a writer or an oceanographer or a retired Dutch business tycoon. This is the place for people who truly love the natural beauty of... More

Two Thumbs up! I recently returned from my trip to Bonaire. This was my first time there and I had heard about the freedom to dive whenever you wanted. The resort was a short drive from the airport and very easy to get to. We were welcomed by a friendly staff. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Special thanks... More

An excellent place to stay in Bonaire with expert dive staff, fine facilities, a dedicated house staff and an excellent restaurant-Rum Runners right on the property. that serves a fine breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms and cottages are well maintained and updated I would highly recommend Captain Don;'s Habitat

Good but not “Great” While I didn't read all 300+ reviews of Captain Don's on TripAdvisor, I would say that the 20+ that I did read were pretty much spot on. The reviews are true and accurate: - "Captain Don's is a diver's resort" - "The rooms are nice and well-equipped" - "The dive operation is seamless" - "The restaurant... More
