Our stay was in the Parrot Fish room- second floor one bedroom. Very roomy living room (opening to balcony and ocean front), roomy bed room, small bath room, and well-equipped galley. No noise from the floors above or below. (Only noise was from the occasional power outages that happened during the wee hours of the morning- everything beeps when the... More

One of the benefits in staying in a property that caters to divers is that most everyone goes to bed early and sleeps soundly after full days of diving! The power outages are not a normal occurrence on Bonaire – at least not in comparison to many Caribbean Islands. When they happen during the day – well we just look... More

We recently returned from our 12th stay at Den Laman. The updates to the furniture made our bright and airy condo, even more inviting and really drew in the gorgeous views! The hospitality was superb. Scuba diving couldn't be easier with the onsite dive shop. We are in the process of planning our return and we have only been home... More

What can we say except thank you twelve times over, and one more for next time? Look for even more improvements on your next visit! Our new restaurant will be opening by the middle of April and we’ll have breakfast service again! More

I used Hotels.com to book the 2 room apt. at Den Laman. This meant I could use Paypal and it's no interest 6 month loan. There was only me and my husband but we like having an extra room for it's bathroom to put certain dive equipment in, and because 2 room apts always seem to be bigger and nicer... More

Please don’t listen to your husband…we are ALL for your extolling the advantages of Den Laman all you want! We’re glad you had a good booking experience with hotels.com. That is a great option for guests who are not looking for the add-ons we include in our Drive & Dive Package – such as the diving and a nice shiny... More

The location is easy to get to and at the far end of town so it is quieter. the rooms are clean and a good size. Our had a bigger fridge than I have at home with water and ice dispenser. Excellent restaurant on site. the Staff are helpful and the views are great.

Your comment about the refrig made me smile! Our Managers are Dutch – I (marketing & PR) am American; our condominium owners are also a split of Dutch and American. Needless to say, the refrigerator size and more importantly the ICE MACHINE, reflect the American influence. Americans have a love affair with ice that bewilders most of the rest of... More

This was our second stay at Den Laman with the same great experience. Super convenient location. Excellent dive shop on site and Bari Reef as the house reef. Nice small hotel with a friendly staff. Very modern finishes. This trip we stayed in the first floor Marlin two bedroom. Absolutely huge condo. Very large bedrooms with firm king beds and... More

Love the “5 bubbles” rating! Clearly written by a diver – and a rating we want to get on your third visits to us! Unfortunately the design/type of windows and doors we have does not allow for the addition of screens. Should the time come for replacing the fixtures in the future we would most definitely consider a different design.... More

Office staff were very helpful and friendly. Cleaning crew did nice job, stayed in ocean front single (Flying Fish) , nice and roomy, bed was not very comfortable to me but my partner liked it (too hard), beautiful views of ocean and coast from porch. Really liked that the Condo was just outside busy part of town, not much noise... More

The front office staff is fantastic. The cleaning team is terrific. The apartments are well furnished and comfortable. The internet is good, not great. The co-located dive shop is excellent. The restaurant (when it's open) is delicious. I'd happily stay again.

Dive shop on site, with secure gear storage and 24/7 access, very convenient. Private dock with a great reef right in front. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suit on the first floor. Large condo, with everything you needed. Indoor/outdoor patio. The only negative here is that people would sometimes walk through. There really wasn't anyplace on the grounds to... More

We apologize that we were having trouble with the key card system for the Blue Marlin unit during your visit. The system is being changed out and the new card key system functional shortly.

We stayed here for one week and had a great time. The front desk workers were very helpful and friendly. The attached dive shop was perfect for our needs. We did 6 boat dives and 5 shore dives. The reef off their private dock offered great diving to include turtles, eels and a sea horse. Tanks were on the dock... More

We’re pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the “small size” aspect of Den Laman and Bonaire Dive & Adventure (and the seahorse – lucky you to spot one!) As mentioned we do not have an elevator, but our front desk staff does try to assist guests in carrying luggage up to their rooms. If we have multiple check... More

We stayed here for the second time this year and had a great time again during our three weeks. While diving is our priority (see review of Bonaire Dive & Adventure (BDA) located on site) we also value somewhere comfortable where we can relax 'at home'. And, as we'd prefer not to eat out every night for three weeks, having... More

We will take immediate inventory of pots, pans and glasses in Balloonfish as they should be consistent with our other units. Apologies that they were not.
