We first came to Capt Don's in 1994 and loved it. We had come back every couple years or so between dives to other locations in the Caribbean and had decided this was the best spot. On a recent trip (2007) we concluded that the place had passed it prime and it was time to move on. On a whim,... More

My wife and I just returned from a fantastic week at Captain Dons..The ocean View room we has was big, clean and had a wonderful view..The diving is about a convenient as it gets..We had lockers on the dock level. A very easy walk to the dive boats and the shore diving dock. The dive operation was wonderful. We enjoyed... More

Captain Don's is the perfect place to stay for serious divers who enjoy a top-notch dive operation and friendly staff. Although it does not have many resort ammenities, Habitat was definitely a dive resort which caters to serious divers. I stayed their on my first trip to Bonaire, and found that everyone else who was diving at the resort had... More

We just spent a lovely 2 weeks scuba-diving in Bonaire. We stayed at Captain Don’s Habitat, as we often do. Our first trip was in 1998 and little has really changed on the island or at the resort. We’ve been in an “Ocean View” room by the pool. It has not been updated in the time we’ve been coming here.... More

I came here for a week with my sister - who is a certified diver. I am not. This is a place for divers as they are set up for all kinds of dives and allow a lot of freedom for divers to go where they want. They have all the equipment and novice divers can learn a lot. There... More

We have stayed here several times for family scuba vacations, and have enjoyed it every time. The hotel rooms are very nice, but the cottages are better. We prefer #1, but they are all great. Highlights include a nice pool and patio area, with quick easy food and snacks. The made to order small pizzas are perfect, and became our... More

Stayed in one of the new ocean front deluxe junior suites next to the dive shop and it was excellent except for the light bulbs in the end table lamps. They are as bright as a night light. If you want to read in bed, bring a head light. The bed was very comfortable and grab bars have been installed... More

This was our fifth visit. The dive staff was extremely professional, knowledgable and above all friendly. There were a number of older divers on the boats this trip. The staff were patient, helpful, and cheerful in helping people in and out of the water. I keep seeing new things every time. This year, I really noticed cleaning stations closely for... More

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
