Amazing Boutique Hotel. Me and my girlfriend loved this place. Viktor was super nice and curtious!!! Breakfast was great as well. I wouldn't stay anywhere else other than the Sonrisa! We are planning to go there again in January!

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!

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

My wife and I are staying here now and it is a nice place for the value. You can walk here from the airport, about a 15 minute walk. They gave us directions for the walk and we made it no problem. The rooms are nice and clean with a nice big bed and a big shower, hot pot in... 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
