“Very modern and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2006

Just returned from our 3rd trip to Bonaire, first stay at the DenLaman - beautiful condos with state of the art appliances and TV/DVD. The ocean view condos are exceptional! Security is excellent - you will fell very safe here.
The restaurant is excellent - try the Barracuda.
The only downfall is that there is no beach or beach chairs for sunning/resting/napping.
Diving is convenient and excellent (lots of fish).The entire staff is very helpful and friendly. Boats are small and require a back roll into the water.

  • Liked — Modern / Brand New
  • Disliked — No beach chairs
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring a beach towel for head for the beach down the road
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2006

Just got back from Bonaire. This was my sixth trip to Bonaire and my first stay at Den Laman. The condo was beautiful with an ocean view. The dive site in front of the condo was excellent. There is a restaurant at the Condo that is very good however your meals can not be put on your room bill. There were six boat dives included in my package. The boats were filled every day. The boats are very small. There was no place for your gear. After reaching the dive site you were handed a tank and had to set up your gear on the floor of the boat. There was no room to put on your gear until someone got in the water. So trying to get your gear on was difficuilt. Therefore I only went on one boat dive the entire week. The shore diving was excellent.

Den Laman is worth it.

We are diver's who dont like to stay in dives... if ya know what I mean. Den Laman is anything but a dive. The condos are pracitcally brand new and immaculate. Tile floors, stainless stell appliances in the kitchen with cherry colored cabinates, LCD TVs with DVD and surround sound, and a great view from our second floor 2 bedroom/2 bath oceanfront room. Sunsets every night! Don't let the word condos scare you away... there is NO ONE pushing time shares here!!!

We reserved a package that included the room, rental car(4 passenger truck with tank rack for shore diving), and unlmited shore diving (Nitrox is free, with a week long air package). The price was competitive with all the bigger resorts on the island. That being said... I would have paid more to stay there.

Incredible diving is right out the back door. Bari Reef, the #1 rated reef in the Caribbean is a stride away. Sea horses, octopus, frog fish (others found them I dod not... grrrr) and anything else you want. It's there, you just have to find it. Bonaire Dive and Adventure is on site. Secure gear storgae is available as well.

The condos are just north of the capital, and centrally located within the countless shore diving oppurtunites.

Hilde, the manager, was great!! Always helpful should you seek her out. You may just see her heading down to the dock to snorkel after she is done working for the day. She runs a top notch place... shame that very few know about it yet. But with service and accomodations like that it will not be unknow for long.

More than likely, if you are reading this... you're a diver. If that's the case... book it. You wont be disappointed. I'm already trying to figure out how to go back ASAP.
