we stayed at the Sand Dollar for 9 nights end of May beginning of June. We stayed in condo C11, and it was perfect on the ground floor with a screened porch and Air Con. The condo was extremely comfortable and decorated and furnished very tastefully, and very spacious.The kitchen had all appliances and utensils. The owners had left a... More

Sand Dollar was a great place to stay. The people were so nice and accommodating. They helped with anything we needed. The location is perfect, near the best places to eat with a great dive right out front. The dive shop, Dive Friends, was helpful and very convenient. I've been to many places in Bonaire and this was by far... More

And this is by far one of the nicest reviews we have had! Not sure what we could add to it other than to say we are glad that after staying elsewhere on Bonaire, you found us. Each property here offers something a bit different and so all of the condo complexes and resorts understand fully the importance of matching... More

For the second year on our dive trip to Bonaire, we stayed at the Sand Dollar, as part of our diving package. While the facilities aren't new or fancy, they are comfortable and sufficient. The staff members are friendly, helpful and efficient. The outside areas are very nicely maintained, and the beach area is breathtaking. We are looking forward to... More

So glad to hear you enjoyed your first stay enough to come back for a second year and are planning a third trip. That is about the highest compliment we could ask for! Far from being new, Sand Dollar was the first condo development on the island. Luckily this means we got ahead of later development and were able to... More

We stayed in Sand Dollar Condo A-11 as part of a larger group of 30+ divers. The referral was from our local scuba shop - Woodbridge Scuba in northern VA (USA), who take annual dive trips to Bonaire. The Sand Dollar staff were casual, discrete and helpful. the studio was very well equipped, comfortable & quiet. The onsighte Dive Friends... More

We love Woodbridge Scuba! Your group has been coming to stay with us for years and we always enjoy having you all in house. It sounds like you took full advantage of what Sand Dollar offers on property. It is a fine balance between offering amenities such as the dive shop and restaurant and still work toward creating an atmosphere... More

Stayed in unit D-11 from 5/16-5/23 2015. 2 bedrooms. One with king bed and the other had 2 twin beds. Kitchen was small but adequate to cook meals. Modest decorations. Only complaint is shower heads are high pressure mist with no way to regulate pressure. Big plus being close to the water and an easy entry for SCUBA Diving.

Just as an FYI - all of our Two Bedrooms units have a king bed in the master and two twins in the second bedroom – which we can convert into a king as well with a mattress topper if requested. High pressure mist doesn’t sound quite right so we will take a look at the shower heads in the... More

F-21 is indeed a lovely unit. All of our condos are privately owned and furnished, each with their own style and appeal. When you chat with our reservations representatives (just call the toll free number) we are happy to discuss what it is that appeals to you most and work on finding the unit that best matches up. We cannot... More

I’ll warn you ahead of time this is a long trip report, the first part will be about the resort and dive shop and the second half will be about an emergency situation that occurred while diving and how Dive Friends rose to the occasion.

There is a yellow stone near the beach at Sand Dollar Resort, saying "Bari Reef". There is an access to this entry, and we tried it 2-3 times. 3rd time around when exiting the dive site, we were questioned by a Dutch lady, apparently the manager of the adjacent dive centre. She told us that access was not allowed, and... More

Dear Diver: Since 1999 the entrance to Bari Reef – the official yellow stone marker placed by STINAPA – has been the access point that is not only south of Sand Dollar but also south of neighboring Den Laman. The yellow stones are quiet easy to see as they lead you off the roundabout and lead you to the vacant... More

This is our 3rd year at Sand Dollar (we rent thru VRBO) and will return again. Clean, convenient and always nice to enjoy Bari Reef even when the winds are up.
