This was our 5th visit to Buddy dive and we had such a great time. This time my husband and I went for a week alone and then our family of 6 adults and 5 small children came for a week. We stayed in 2 of the 3 bedroom condos and they were really nice. The entire staff made us feel so welcome and accomodated our needs with the kids. The front desk staff was amazing (and I had a lot of requests including lost locker keys, cribs, cars). Charmaine was so helpful as was Marly. The housekeeping took great care of the rooms even though it was pretty chaotic in our 2 condos. The food is always good in Blennies and the breakfast. Manuel does a great job and I am sure he is always there! The diving is, of course, amazing. I do find that trying to schedule the boat diving is a little difficult, esp with a large group. You pretty much have to be standing at the board when they erase a boat and post a new one. We figured out the system but it was not possible to get the boats we wanted. It was nice to see so many familiar faces in the dive operations. Danni, Guen, PePe area always so much fun to be around. We also especially enjoyed doing the Ostrocod dive with Laurent. He is a great divemaster . Also, Nikki is a blast. So, thanks for accomodating our crazy family and making this vacation exceptional and fun. Can't wait to see you again.…
Many thanks to the gang at Buddy Dive in Bonaire. I had a terrific experience in the classroom and on the open water dive. The result of my great experience is that I WILL recertify and dive again in the near future. I also met some great fellow divers that have become friends.
If you are using Buddy Dive for boat dives be warned that if the analyzer for your Nitrox tank gets blown out onto the water you will be responsible for the loss. On our one trip the analyzernwas hannded to me and when I opened up the air to analyze a burst of air blew it out of my hand. I take full responsibility but would have liked to have been told AHEAD of time that the cost of replacement would be added to my bill. Suggesting to Buddy Dive that this information gets passed on PRIOR to using the analyzer. Checking out and being told that the 157$ charge was because of that was a huge disappointment. Communication is key! Not a good ending to our dive trip.
Have stayed here twice. Comfortable. Restaurants better second time. Dive service is pretty good. Dive Buddy’s House Reef is amazing, especially for night and early morning dives. Octopus, tarpon, stingray, lobster, turtles seen
This is the 5th time at Buddy Dive! Always great staff, food and accommodation. The rooms are really good and clean. We have visited both restaurants and we will certainly go back! The food is really nice and well prepared! We also have two kids who had the best Holiday ever! They are enjoying the pool and facilities at the resort. So we were able to relax 😁. We want to thank Buddy Dive for the experience and will come back next year!!
