The Sand Dollar Condominiums were more than adequate accomodations for the purpose of our trip, which was to spend as much time underwater as possible. The rooms were clean and airy, the AC and fans worked well, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and plenty of room to dry out wet gear. My dive buddy and I were... More

Thanks for your post. Yes drying out the gear on that last day is always rather a sad operation isn’t it - as it really signals the end of vacation! But it will actually dry quite nicely inside the condo though as the A/C and ceiling fans really whisk away the moisture – sometimes more so than when being exposed... More

Quite dated but clean.the good location made up for what was lacking in the inside. Ground unit could easily be broken into.the dive shop on site was fairly helpful and reasonable.best thing was the nice reef out front. The "aquarium" was full of fish. Even a seahorses nearby!

We’re glad you enjoyed the reef. Our house reef (Bari Reef) is rated #1 in the Caribbean by the REEF organization in terms of species richness – over 390 species of fish recorded to date. Makes for a pretty nice “front yard.” I would like to state for the record that ground floor units are not easy to break into,... More

Other reviews mentioned that condos vary a lot in quality. I can't comment on that, but we requested a condo with an updated kitchen, since we planned cooking ourselves the whole time, close to the dive shop, since we planned diving as much as we could handle, and with a screened porch, since Mosquitos are not our friends. We got... More

The variation in the condos is becoming far less as so many of the owners have upgraded their units, but it does help us to know what you are looking for in terms of a unit so you get the most enjoyment out of your stay. Ground floor (like B5) or second floor; screened or unobstructed open concept; close to... More

We have stayed at this property the two times we have visited Bonaire. Choose a room on the second floor if you want a better view of the ocean and to have a great breeze through the rooms. Both of the condos we stayed in had air conditioning in the bedrooms, but not in the living spaces. This was not... More

The trade winds are lovely blowing through the condo’s are they not? We are thankful that the developers laid out the complex the way they did, so that all of the buildings can take advantage of the breeze – which you can feel quite well on the ground floor as well. We have as you mention just finished upgrading the... More

Our first time on the island and we were very happy with apartment C4 which was a 2 bed 2 bath second floor unit of a good size and with a screened balcony. It was booked through Sand Dollar who were very helpful in matching our requirements. The unit was well fitted, had comfortable beds and came with all the... More

We hope your sunburn is fading but not your memories of your enjoyable vacation with us. It sounds like you made the most of your time and really got to know our island.

Had another wonderful month at b7. Enjoyed the new living room furniture and made a pot roast in the crockpot. Thanks Louis and Eileen. Outside, there was a seahorse in 12’ of water in front of the aquarium for the whole month. My first seahorse! There were also a couple of frogfish around. Joined the Monday rum punch party at...

A month away from the cold of Minnesota – nice! And very accommodating of the seahorse to be within snorkeling range. They are very territorial, so if left undisturbed are quite happy to stay in one general location. Always a treat to see. Glad to hear you enjoyed Dee’s night snorkel. Not enough people think to snorkel at night and... More

I've stayed at Sand Dollar 3 or 4 other times because its location is just right for us, the snorkeling, both day and night is fantastic and for the most part it is kept in good condition. We stayed in B5 which we were told was just renovated and it was in good condition with a comfortable master bed and... More

Thank you for being one of our valued repeat guests. The owners of B5 would like to thank you for the nice note and bottle of wine you left them thanking them for your enjoyable stay! That was a unique gesture and they were very touched. We cannot imagine who told you that the owners had cut back on any... More

Agree with GusW's review of the resort and definitely with sandybaham's review of E11. This is a condo resort, and while Sand Dollar management assured us they have guidelines for each condo, they are obviously only in a position of influence with the condo owners. They were never quite able to explain how units are assigned...we were unable to switch... More

Thank you for your very thorough posting. As you mentioned in the post, E11 has been sold, and the new owners will be removing it from the rental pool in April so that they can completely renovate the unit. You also note that room requests cannot always be honored. This is indeed true - no property can 100% guarantee your... More

We have found Sanddollar to be the perfect fit for our Bonaire vacations. On our trips, we are looking for the best diving available, clean accomodations, a peaceful atmosphere, and a way to conveniently prepare our own meals if we like. You can't beat the diving available at Sanddollar and while some units are dated, we have found a favorite... More

Our thanks for the nice post. I do want to point out that guests booking with our reservations offices or with their favorite travel agent can request units with a screened in porch if that is their preference. The majority of the units do in fact have screened porches, so accommodating this request is not hard. Luckily for those who... More

Great diving from the pier! Use the dive shop next door; experienced and well stocked. Dive masters were excellent! Condo was spacious and well equipped. Plenty of room and the kitchen had everything required.
