We booked to windsurf and Sorobon seemed the ideal place to stay. We were not disappointed as Jibe City windsurfing was minutes from our room. The hotel offered all we needed, the rooms could do with a little bit of sprucing up but with the proxiity to the beach and the constant wind it must be a full time job.... More

The choice to book SBR was the sandy beach just in front of the cottages. With the sea just a few steps away, it is a perfect combination. The cottages are simple. Could have some upgrading, especially the bed and kitchen. No A/C in the living room area, but there is a A/C in the bedroom. There is a nice... More

Situated on Lac Bay, SBR is perfect for a relaxing getaway in the sun. It's quite remote, but I would highly recommend anyone to get a truck to explore the island anyway, there's so much unspoilt beauty to enjoy, and hiring a vehicle let's you discover it. Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted, given some island tips accompanied by a... More

We had one week holiday early March 2014 in Sorobon. I did read the reviews before we came. I can confirm that most (if not all) of the negative critics is either untrue or not relevant. This hotel is just what you expect: immediately on the beach, simple but nice rooms, nice wind to cool down, correct food. If you... More

This is not a high end resort so adjust your thinking and allow yourself to relax. If you are into windsurfing, snorkeling, diving , or swimming you will love Bonaire. Most of the rooms here are actually set up like suites in small attached 'chalets'. The bedroom had an air conditioner so sleeping was blissful at the end of a... More

SBR is quite remote, so unless you hire a car (recommended - all the usuals are at the Airport) or intend to spend a lot of time on-site, you could end up spending a lot on taxis. The beach is a delight, and the Lac bay shelves very gently to waist depth max right out 500m or so to the... More

Sorobon beach resort is about a 15min drive from the airport ($20 each way) and about 20min from Kralendijk (could be $25 unless you get cab 37 who was super nice and only charged $20). If you're looking for top notch accomodation, this is not it. But if you just want to relax and be in a peaceful setting, you've... More

When we arrived at Sorobon it was already very clear to us that this place was not maintained at all!!! The resort was literally falling apart! The houses were painted but in a very low-budget way, the kitchen inventory very poor and after we smelled the cupboards we decided not to cook at all! Nobody taking care of the grounds... More

When we first arrived, 1st impression was "a bunch of huts on the beach which could still be kinda cool.. Then we entered the cottage that we were assigned. No A/C in the living room area: Yikes.. !!
