“good friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We arrived at the apartments to a very warm welcome.We were shown to our room which was very clean and well equipt.We were also shown were we could rinse our diving equiptment and were we could keep(hang) it.We found the bar a very social place even with us being the only Engish people . Martin was extremely helpful when we asked about dive sites which was much more than we could say about the dive centre that we had been booked with.The dive centre was Wannadive who we would not recommend to anyone although some of their staff were ok ,others were rude ,surley and very unhelpful.Nevertheles thanks the Djambo and the great diving we had a wonderful holiday and would definately go back.

After 10 years away I finally made it back to Bonaire. Looking for a new place to stay I came across Djambo. It is very well thought out for ease before and after your dive. The rooms are colorful and spacious. The scuba room secure and is set up perfectly to rinse and hang your dive gear at the end of the day. You do not have to leave the property at the end of the day to have a cocktail. It is right outside your front door. The four owners are helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Djambo and will return here my next visit to Bonaire.

Room Tip: There are only two larger apartments. I rented one of the two bedroom apartments. They both had a...

Djambo is a very nice place to stay: good appartments (bed, kitchen, bathroom are all ok), small so a personal atmosphere, only a couple of 20 appartments located around the pool, friendly owners, bar where people sit and drink something before going to dinner, walking distance to the center,...

this was our 2nd visit on bonaire. this location is just perfect.
the furniture, facilities are in very good conditions, because of
the 2 owner-couples which are really looking to their things.
Liselotte, Dick, Ingrid and Martin are allways around to clean,
repair, cutting plants, cleaning the pool...........and of course
at 5:30 the are opening the Bar "djambar" !
the rooms, bathroom, the open kitchen was just the right thing
for us as couple........ we love this place and how it looks now -
we've to come back ! ! !

We have just returned from Bonaire after spending a week diving. Djambo was a great place for us to stay. It suited our needs, a nice clean modern apartment with a big open air kitchen area. All the apartments are situated around a swimming pool with sunloungers and shady areas. There are good facilities for cleaning the diving kit and a room for storing it. The owners who live on the premises were very friendly and helpful. The location of the Djambo was very convenient for us, a 5 minute drive from the supermarket and fifteen minute walk into town where there are some very good restaurants. Djambo is a great place to stay and we would recommend it to others.

Tip you do need to bring some mosquito spray, and a hair dryer if you dont want 7 bad hair days like me ha ha!
