We did not stay at Captain Don's, however, we did have one of our best dinners while on the island at their restaurant and judging by what we were able to see of the hotel I would have rather stayed at Captain Don's than where we ended up staying and plan to make a reservation at Don's should we ever...

I've just returned for a week at Captn Don's. For years I've heard of Bonaires reputation as a diving destination must. It is true. The hotel was just perfect for a relaxing time, either by the pool, the bar or just in the room. We have an upstairs room over looking the pool and ocean. The food at the restaurant... More

I've been coming to Habitat since I got certified in 1992. I've been back a few times with just a few people and a few times with very large groups, so I've seen them from a number of different perspectives. First, the diving. They are GREAT. The boat dives are excellent - if you want to follow the dive master... More

Cap Don's has been a Bonaire staple forever. It's showing a little wear here & there but overall it's still an excellent dive resort. Their motto of 'diving freedom' is true. They treat you like adults who know what you're doing & don't have a lot of rules & restrictions which was exactly what we were looking for. If you... More

We have been visiting Bonaire since 1993 and have always stayed at Captain Don's Habitat. At least 10 visits, maybe even 15. The rooms are always comfortable and the staff friendly. When we stayed there a few weeks ago we found that our usual ocean view room had been renovated. A completely new bathroom and a wall mounted TV as... More

I just returned from another stay at Capt. Dons Habitat, my favorite place to stay while visiting Bonaire. The week was incredible, as usual, and was my 4 th time staying here. This was my first time staying in a 2 bedroom bungalow. The room was clean, large living area, great outdoor covered space. The diving from shore was wonderful,... More

The diving was amazing! The dive masters and staff ( Roger, Martin, Captain Crunch, etc) know this region well, and they'll take you to the best spots with lots of sea beings to see: sea horses, puffer fish, box fish, tarpon, octopus, spotted eels, moray eels, cuttlefish, turtles, barracuda, shrimps, nudi bronchs, etc. at the resort, it's one of the...

My Husband and I dove with Habitat for 10 boat dive. We also did 2 shore dives off the dock at Habitat. They have lockers available for gear with an area to hang your suit. I don’t believe anything would dry if left in the lockers. We only left our fins, regs, mask, and weights the rest we took back... More

Spent a week diving the whole island if Bonaire, and found that some of the best diving was off the end of the dock. First time to Bonaire and I absolutely loved it!! Captain Don's is a great place to stay, if you want to dive. The facilities are a little dated, but the staff was excellent. Took a couple... More

Please read this entire review before drawing any conclusions--it is truly a mixed bag. The "average" rating is based on a combination of my dive experience (both February and August, 2014), and the accommodations (August, 2014). If I were rating the dive experience only, it would be a 5 star "excellent" rating without question. If I were rating the accommodations/service... More
