20 year old condo resort community clean and comfortable. We rented A16 a one bedroom condo for 6 nights and it was nicely furnished with just about anything you would want for an extended stay. There is Eddy's restaurant with a nice pool located within the resort as well as a dive tour operator. The location of the Sand Dollar... More

We stayed in Unit A-8 for two weeks. The Sand Dollar was great. It was our first time in Bonaire and we really appreciated having the overnight security and helpful front desk staff. The unit is situated to perfectly capture the trade winds. I think all the units are designed that way. The cross breeze is strong and absolutely lovely.... More

Sand Dollar is a condominium and as such each unit may have different level furnishing and modernization. We stayed at unit E11 and it was fully renovated and well appointed. Don't let the name Sand Dollar Resort fool you, I wouldn't call it a typical resort with manicured ground but instead it has very low key and relaxing atmosphere and... More

We've been staying at Sand Dollar since the early 2000s and will continue to stay there whenever we visit Bonaire. The property is located right on the water and is the perfect place for divers when you have to be on the surface. The staff are friendly and keep the property in great condition and the rooms clean. There are... More

Been going to Sand Dollar condo's for last 20 years. It is still a great reliable option on Bonaire. Nothing fancy but condos are clean and have nice space in them. Each unit is individually owned so home owners can decorate and units can be a little different. All units have full kitchens with appliance, and air conditioning in the... More

Decent and comfortable accommodations but not fancy which you don't need if you are there to dive. Each unit is owned by an off site owner and managed by the resort. First unit we were in we refused to stay in because of a urine smell in one of the bedrooms. The management promptly moved us and explained that they... More

Dear Joe: We do apologize that your vacation started off on this wrong foot. We were not aware, nor did we note what you describe as a urine smell, as we would never knowingly allow a guest entrance to a unit with a questionable odor. However we’re glad the new unit you were moved to better suited your taste. I... More

This is my 9th stay at Sanddollar. Not a place for someone who wants hotel amenities as it is condo units. Allows great freedom to come and go and very laid back. Very clean and each unit is decorated by the owner, so décor will vary from room to room. The restaurant adjacent to the Sanddollar is called Eddy's and... More

We actually changed how we marketed the property about 6 years ago, including changing the name from Sand Dollar Condominium Resort to Sand Dollar Condominiums so guests would have a better understanding of what we are NOT.
