We have stayed at the Sonrisa multiple times before, probably 6 or 7 times. We missed last year as we waited too late and no rooms were available for our travel dates, so we made reservations early this time. The last several trips we had stayed two weeks but were trying three weeks this time, so we opted for the... More

The friendliness of the hotel manager was so welcome. Breakfast (included) was terrific. They have an omelette to die for. The location is close to the airport and fairly close to restaurants downtown. The Island is fairly easy to get around on and the people were, all-in-all, very friendly and enjoyable to be around. We would return in a heartbeat.

I made a reservation for this hotel 3 months ago for a trip my family is taking next week. Today I get an email from them stating that due to a computer error they accidentally overbooked the hotel and had to cancel my reservation. They said they were sorry. They made no attempt to find other accommodations for us, or... More

I booked this Boutique Hotel for a 10 day holiday with my wife. We were given an upgrade to an apartment at no extra cost. The accommodation was perfect for our needs. Comfortable beds, cooking facilities, refrigerator, 2 large comfortable settees, TV (which we didnt use) and a balcony. Victor - the manager - couldn`t have been more friendly and... More

We stayed 3 nights at Sonrisa. I would not call Sonrisa a hotel I would say this looks like a hostel. Viktor gave us a spacious room on the first floor with balcony and view to the pool. There is a big living room and kitchen with appliances. As long as our staying was short we did not cook there.... More

We really enjoyed our time at Sonrisa. Highlights were the delicious and filling breakfasts and chatting with Viktor in the mornings, enjoying the evening breeze, and the close walk to downtown and convenient location. Housekeeping needs to do a better job - the balconies were filthy, and would otherwise be a very nice place to hang out, eat meals, etc..... More

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.

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!
