Hotel is small, with approximately 8 rooms and pool, but is very cozy, friendly, and clean,. It is located 5 minutes from airport ($10 taxi ride) and a 10 minute walk to downtown. Thanks Viktor for making our stay a very pleasurable experience and your help with obtaining us a rental car, taxis, advice about places and things to see... More

This was our first time in Bonaire and we were so lucky to find this little Oasis. Large, c!ean room overlooking a small well landscaped courtyard and pool. Viktor was our host/breakfast chef/activity assistant and a great help during our week long stay. Good value and walking distance to town and restaurants. We will definately return!

We booked the Sonrisa for one night so we could catch an early flight out of Bonaire last Sunday & the place was close to the airport. This is not a hotel, but more of a hostel/apartment with a small, but nice pool. Viktor was our host, gave us our keys to the room & the front gate & helped... More

We stayed at the Sonrisa for 2 weeks in January 2013. After spending time in this wonderful hotel, it was hard to go back to Canada with the -30C temperature:)Jacqueline was an excellent host and provided lots of great conversation and laughs at breakfast. The breakfast included fruit, pastries, yogurt and granola and a sub sandwich as well as coffee,... More

Life has run away with me since staying at the Sonrisa in June 2013. However, the memories linger on. The Sonrisa was a perfect destination for those of us who do not like to stick to schedules but like to chill out. No pressure here. Our comfortable one bed roomed apartment was a good size, very clean with decent furniture... More

Our 4th stay at Sonrisa was even better than our first. We stay in the 2-bedroom apartment, which has a master bed/bath and a second bed/bath with 3 twin beds--perfect for our 3 kids. Jaqueline, the owner, thinks of everything. Well-stocked kitchen (and an excellent outdoor grill), full sets of towels and beach towels, a wonderful pool, a wet cell... More

Sonrisa Rooms and Apartments certainly lived up to its reputation of being the number one hotel in the city of Kralendijk. This delightful boutique hotel is a beauty and is located within a short walking distance of several large grocery stores, a convenience store, downtown where there are many restaurants to choose from for dining and small beach areas to...
