First, the view of the ocean from every condo on the property can't be beat. The property itself is nice with lots of sitting areas for looking out over the ocean. The house reef is wonderful and super easy access for snorkeling or diving. However, the condo we stayed in (B14) was in major need of a facelift. The condo... More

We stayed in F1 from 6/6/14-6/25/14. The welcome upon our arrival wasn't very warm, in fact, it was a tad non existent. We got there after 830pm and the office had already been closed with uncertain instructions or signs as to what to do to get our room key. But fortunately there is a security guard on the premises and... More

It sort of strange because you are basically staying at someones house but quickly it becomes yours. Staff is super friendly. Dive shop and reef right there so it doesn't get much better than that. Close to town but not too close. my only complaint was that the shower didn't drain well but that was just in ours. I'd stay... More

Staying at the Sand Dollar Condominium Resort is more like staying at a friend's house than checking into a hotel. We stayed in a one-bedroom, corner-apartment, condo (B4) that was large, clean, and beautifully decorated. There are separate air conditioners for the livingroom/kitchen area and the bedroom, so we were always comfortable. The couple who owns the condo left a... More

Compared to its neighboring properties, this "resort" falls short. Capt Dons and Buddys appear much nicer. Nicer grounds, much more well maintained, real restaurants on premises, and housekeeping more than twice a week. I do not understand how Sand Dollar justifies its cost when compared to neighboring properties. On the positive side, it is on Bari Reef and several of... More

In the two weeks time I was there, I enjoyed so much of it, except I admit I didn't try the on site restaurant, where the pool is also located. I did watch many a tennis match on the grounds, but didn't use the court myself. The maid service came through once that I was very unimpressed by (it was... More

This was our first trip to Bonaire and we picked the Sand Dollar based on reviews and location. We stayed in A16 which was a one bedroom condo. The resort was really nice. The room was as I expected. This is not a 5 star hotel but that is not what I expected. It was clean, very comfortable, and well... More

We rented directly from the owner, Mitzi (see VRBO) and were here April 19-May 4. This studio condo unit is at the far side of the complex,but you can easily walk to the Dive Friends office on site. The condo is very comfortable for two and has a well furnished kitchen. The owners even have binoculars to watch the parrots,... More

If you are a diver, this a great studio condo. The dive shop (Bonaire Dive Adventure) is about 25 steps to the side (but insulated from any noise/traffic) and the ocean is about 50 steps in front of you. There is a small patch of sandy beach right in front that is great for catching sun, reading or taking a... More

Condo rentals and most are very good and some not so much as some people in our group didn't like the ones they had..ours however was great. Look over the layout carefully if you want to do a lot of shore dives on the excellent house reef as some of the units are a far walk from the shore entry... More
