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

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

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.

We had 2 couples so we rented F-21 and it was by far a amazing unit. 3 bedrooms with private AC and slide doors to outside with 3 full baths, they locked out back bedroom since we did not need it and it was better on price per night The tile work in the showers along with full tiled walls... 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. We arrives April 28th, there were five of us staying in D-18, the condo suited... More

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

We just stayed at the Sand Dollar April 11-18, 2015. It was our first trip to Bonaire and it was amazing! We have already booked again for next year. The F-21 condo at the Sand Dollar is undoubtedly the nicest property at the resort. It has 3 beautiful bedrooms, 3 beautiful bathrooms, 4 TVs, CD/DVD players, air conditioning, WiFi, an... 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. This has been our base since we first came to Bonaire to snorkel. The accommodations are nothing fancy since this is an older resort but the unit we stay... More

not a fancy place, but has everything you need...a kitchen, an open-air porch, hooks to hang clothes out there to dry, nice bathroom...and BEST of all, walking out the back door to the best snorkeling for hours on end every day and gorgeous sunsets on the patio every night...you can walk to several different dive shops and restaurants and town...

We love the Bravo but of course can’t claim any kudos for our location. For that we can only be extremely grateful, and happy that our guests can enjoy the benefits of our “geography” as much as they do! Our thanks for being our guest. More

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
