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

This was my 5th stay at Captain Don's Habitat. Just returned yesterday and already planning for next year. As always, the diving was very good, the staff friendly and professional and the accommodations excellent. We chose the 10 boat dive package and made 2 boat dives every morning and either a shore dive somewhere else on the island or right... More

Just came back from Captain Dons Habitat Resort in July 25th 2015 for a diving week with friends. Roger the manager was awesome to work with. Any question he would answer promply. I did have a regulator issue he fixed on the spot. The dive shop staff was extremely helpful with dive site questions and also gave tips to see... More

This was our first dive trip to Bonaire and stayed at Cpt Don's. The resort was everything it was advertised as on their website. The rooms were comfortable and the AC worked well. Having two queen sized beds was wonderful. We stayed in a Deluxe Ocean View and really enjoyed the patio with amazing views. The Wifi is there but... More

This was a group dive trip, I shared with another female diver/friend. The accommodations were adequate once we were moved to an updated room. We had some issues with the maids which were resolved once we brought it to the attention of the operations manager (dive shop/resort). The diving was great, boat and shore alike. The location is super. The... More

In June a group of us went to Bonaire for a week of diving, well it was supposed to be a week. Our flight was delayed and we ended up getting to the resort after 58 hours of travel. The manager and the staff at Cpt Don's Habitat did everything possible to make our shortened stay as fun and exciting... More

Super convenient, helpful staff, great home base to do unlimited shore diving. Food is a little expensive, and the wifi never worked, but hey, we weren't there to look at the internet! Most definitely would recommend

We had a very nice room at Captain Don's. Ours was a deluxe junior suite - balcony facing the water. Room had small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. We had friends, though, that got stuck in a different kind of room, old and not renovated, moldy, etc., so be sure request a renovated room. Overall we found most of the... More

We stayed for 1 week on Bonaire at Captain Don's Habitat. While we are all experienced divers I was disappointed in some of the dive crew in that they did not help divers on and off the boat, into their heavy equipment etc, without asking and then sometimes without a lot of grace. Some of the divers were older and... More

This resort is very well known on the Island especially with divers. A lot of apartments, some of them have Sea view. For me this is a must if you stay on an Island like Bonaire. We had a junior suite with a view on the Sea and klein Bonaire. The staff is friendly and correct. The breakfast is great... More
