This holiday was great - very quiet, laid back and casual but everything at hand and very convenient. Spacious clean apartment, good showers, good beds, good aircon in bedrooms with fan in sitting room- which I liked, as we were comfortable at night but not hermetically sealed into the apartment. Truck had cosmetic scratches and dinks, but not old and... More

Great place to pick up a few boat dives and pick up tanks to shore dive all week. Nice rooms everything was clean and well kept. Morning mill was only ok. Manager party was fun but I drank to much. Dive crew was professional and helpful and kept us safe and sound.

We went here on an RCI exchange. Our 1 king/1 bath/full kitchen was clean. Bed was fine as long as we didn't try to sleep in the middle where the 2 mattresses met. The shower was a ridiculous partial glass enclosed set up that always left the floor wet. The balcony door was next to impossible to move and the... More

Our local dive shop recomended Buddy Dive, so we decided to try it for our first trip to Bonaire. Our communication with them prior to the trip was smooth and timely. When we arrived at the airport, we very quickly found the bus to the resort. Based on what we saw, they had a very effecient system. They marked our... More

If you are a fellow SCUBA diver, that's the place you want to be. I had a wonderful experience at Buddy Dive. The rooms were perfect, clean and practical. Their dive installations are great. You have your breakfast, walk 1 minute to the deck were all your gear is safely stored and start your diving day. Or you can just... More

I had a 2 week dive-vacation here in april/may 2015. The room was normal (airconditioning, small safe + fridge - which was more than in some places I stayed). The diving was perfectly organised - either by boat (enter your name on a board for a reservation), by rent-a car (don't forget your driver's license), or shore dive (just grab... More

Great diving; great staff. Spacious rooms. If you love diving, this is the place to be. One of the best sections of the reef is just steps away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is my 5th year going to Bonaire and Buddy dive and I plan on returning next year.

I Loved this place to have Unlimited Diving! We went with our local dive shop for this trip. With it being a small island everything was close. You will have to rent a vehicle to drive around to different dive sites if you don't want to dive in the same place. There is always full air tanks ready to go.... More

My family enjoyed a fantastic stay at Buddy Dive. We stayed from July 18th to July 26th, 2015. My 16 year old daughter got her Open Water dive certification during the stay. Her instructor (David) was wonderful. My wife had not dove in some 16 years but got hooked again on diving while there. I have been diving since 1993... More
