Captain Don's prides itself as the home of diving freedom and it lives up to the name. 24/7 shore diving and a choice of boat diving packages that includes two-a-day and three-a-day (Extreme Diving) packages. Diving off the dive dock is literally as easy as falling in the water and you are treated to a house reef unparalleled in the... More

I've been to Captain Don's twice now, and each time it gets better. The staff is never changing, they're upgrading a lot of the rooms and facilities, and the diving really is some of the best on the island. They have unlimited shore diving packages as well as boat diving packages. The house reef has some interesting sea life, coral... More

Captain Dons makes boat diving very easy. The dive staff with one exception Dive Master Simba are nice but not real interested in the divers experience (i.e. looking for interesting dive life). The person who handles the Nitrox tanks is Rude. The Rooms are all different I understand they are privately owned some are in better shape then others ours... More

While staying in the cabana area we were robbed while we slept early on the morning we were to depart. They came in a window that did not lock & took a laptop, dive computer & regulator. They knew what they were looking for. We could not make a police report without missing our flight so one was made in... More

Dear Mr/ Mrs. Neeld, I am the General Manager of Captain Don's Habitat. I was very surprised to read your review as we have had no previous correspondence regarding this matter. I have checked with all of our front desk and management staff and none have been approached about a theft in any of our rooms nor has anyone had... More

While Captain Don's may not be the Ritz, it is perfect for divers. The dive staff is super easy-going and the layout of the resort is ideal as everything is directly on the ocean. Diving is easy with the boat times pre-scheduled as well as the availability of diving off the pier. It was awesome to see many of the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights prior to moving to our Villa and it was great! We got in late on a Wednesday night and the front desk service was a little...um....well, clipped and possibly tired (I have to agree somewhat with Brett H's review). We got through the check-in process and moved into a 2-bedroom cottage which was just perfect.... More

The accommodations are fine and diving access is great. We had some confusion with the front desk over what we had paid for through the booking agency. They would not call them to resolve the matter. Instead, they directed us to call (at our expense) through our room phones.

We have visited Captain Don's on two different occasions and were equally impressed! From our Jr Suite with private balcony (2nd floor) overlooking the ocean to the dive masters to the late night desserts. This is the ONLY place we will stay while in Bonaire! We were lucky enough to meet Captain Don in 2013 before passing away and then... More

Just returned from another wonderful dive trip in Bonaire the week of 20Jul2015. This is my third trip to Captain Don's and I can't imagine staying anywhere else while on that island. The staff there are so incredibly nice! From the folks to the front desk, to the housekeepers, to the gal in the gift shop…. they make you feel... More

This was or first trip to Bonaire with myself, my wife Rachel, and my 10 year old son Cooper. It was incredible. We were blessed to have Neto and Jason as our divemasters and they were more that we could have asked for. On top of showing us all of the cool critters on our 12 boat dives they were... More
