We have travelled to this property 3 times now. We come to Bonaire for the snorkeling. The entire island is very safe, we rent a truck and make our own excursions. Most resorts on the island are not all inclusive and is a main reason for choosing Plaza Beach. The resorts on Bonaire are also much smaller than resorts on other islands. You might think that the small size of an all inclusive resort would lead to boring food choices. That statement could not be further from the truth. Plaza Beach changes the food choices in their brand new dining area daily. It is almost like eating somewhere new each day of your trip. Because you dine in the same place everyday, you are greeted by the same smiling faces serving you each day. The staff at Plaza Beach truly seem to enjoy themselves and the guests. Truly Mike

We stayed 8 nights at the Plaza Beach & Dive Resort. We arrived on a Saturday evening. Upon arriving at the airport we had to wait awhile for transportation, even though we had it arranged. Think the van left, but the people at the airport were very helpful and contacted the resort. Check in went smoothly. You have to take all your luggage and walk to find your own room, which we’ve never encountered before staying at a resort. We stayed in the Grand Suite Ocean View room. The room was fairly large, with an amazing view. We were on the second floor. The air conditioner didn’t work very well, but we were given a fan a few days after arrival, which helped a lot. Even though rooms are somewhat dated, the bed was extremely comfortable. Our room was cleaned daily. We did have to contact the front desk several times for more towels and soap. There is a refrigerator in the room, but no beverages are provided. You may want to bring an insulated mug to fill with water, as water bottles are not provided. When we would go to eat or to the bar, we would get our mugs filled. You may also get canned soda at the buffet to take back to the room. You also have to go to the front desk, to exchange your beach towels daily. We really enjoyed the food during our stay. You need an evening reservation for dinner, and each night has a theme for the food. In addition to the buffet food, they usually have something they grill each evening when you go into the buffet. We enjoyed the morning breakfast too. The seating area can be extremely hot as it is outside open air. We may have lost a few pounds sweating some days. We ate at the pool bar a couple of times and the food was okay. We are beach people and my husband loved snorkeling from shore. We brought our own snorkel gear. It is rocky getting into the water from shore. Also, make sure you bring water shoes. We didn’t have a problem finding a lounger on the beach, but it got extremely hot even with the shade. If you want a drink, you have to go to the pool bar to get it. Once again, we used our insulated mug to keep our beverages cold. The pool area was nice and it was hard to get a lounger with shade. Much cooler hanging out at the pool, but definitely more busy. The pool bar gets crowded, and they also provide food. A few days kids were yelling and screaming in the pool, which wasn't the resorts fault. There were actually few children there the week we stayed. We took two excursions while at the Plaza Resort. We highly recommend using Private Guided Tours Bonaire. We took an island tour, which was truly amazing. Kirsten customized the day for us and we learned so much about the beautiful island of Bonaire. So many great places to stop and explore, and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Posada Para Mira. We also did a half day snorkeling excursion, which was another highlight of our trip. The sunsets at the Plaza Beach & Dive Resort are breathtaking. In the evenings we would go to the pool bar and enjoy a couple of drinks. It is beautiful at night. There is really no night life, but we were always so tired at the end of the day after spending our time in the sun and snorkeling. The resort is popular for divers. There was construction going on during our stay, but we really didn’t notice. Upon leaving early in the morning, we had to lug our suitcases to the front to catch the van back to the airport. We had an early flight so it was dark, and the front desk was closed. The van showed up on time and got us to the airport for departure in plenty of time. We would recommend the Plaza Resort to others. It will be amazing once all the construction is complete. We love exploring and traveling to different destinations, but we would consider returning to Bonaire and the Plaza Resort.

Bitterly dissappointing The day before we arrived informrd that Ocean view rooms suffered electrical issues, would be accomodated at nearby hotel with golf cart to travel back and forth to enjoy all amenities at Beach Plaza Sounded like a reasonable attempt to accomodate to unforseen conditions so proceeded to travel - BIG Mistake! Courtyard Marriot rooms clean but cramped, had to keep curtains closed all day as direct sun into room, too hot to sit outside, no shade Several days of long hot walks to and from parking lot, 4 min drive to Beach Plaza, lug all your stuff back and forth etc On 3rd day did get a room at Beach Plaza on lagoon side, at least daily travel hassle is over. Suprise in morning - guests coming out of the Ocean view room same as we booked ?! Told still problems with most of those rooms - not true - saw occupants in 14 of 15 suites... Reason for our booking not being honoured were inconsistent and insincere. Three days in the Marriott hot box and golf cart rental in NO way make up for the loss of Oceanview room. Particularly bitter when you see others enjoying it.

Sorry to ready that your stay did not turn out what you had expected. As we had an electricity shortage in the rooms we unfortunately had to come with an alternative close by the Resort. We applogies for any inconvenience caused and hope despite the 3 day alternative solution, that you have enjoyed your time on Bonaire.

Plaza is building new apartments and facilities. That is great. But putting customers in unfinished rooms is far beyond acceptable. Having 2 rooms without curtains so you have no privacy is just plain bad. And they think they can fix that by giving you a simple letter when you arrive. All other issues we addressed to the staff didn't seem to get any compassion. I can tell the staff is unmotivated after all they customers start complaining about the unfinished rooms. I would not advise getting an appartment on the Laguna untill they advertise them ass fully finished.

The Plaza is always making improvements. The new dining facility is over the top. The buffet was always full of options. The diving staff is top notch. They are all professional and go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met.

I don't even know where to begin. My experience at the Plaza Beach and Dive Resort Bonaire far exceeded my expectations. The room was beautiful and comfortable. I especially appreciated the double sinks and "water closet", since I was traveling with a friend. The staff was so friendly and accommodating that there were actually tears when we left. I had the privilege of celebrating my birthday in Bonaire and the staff, especially Luz, went out of their way to make it special and memorable. We opted for the all-inclusive package and the food was always delicious, with different offerings each evening. The dive staff at Toucan Diving made me feel like I was at my local dive shop. They were safe and professional, yet unbelievably friendly. I simply can't say enough good things about the Resort and hope to return in the not so distant future.

Nice Resort with everything you need. The Hotel rooms are big and the beds are very comfortable. There is a cool Diveshop with Diveschool. Perfect for beginners and certified divers. The restaurant and beach bar are great to chill and have a drink.
