Excellent place, nice staff clean rooms. Good food at blennies! The best place for diving, and diving tours. Good cars for hire. The drive and drive they have is superb for independent drivers. Diving equipment up to date and in good shape! Great snorkeling at the “house reef”! Will be back again!
Resort and diving were absolutely amazing. Shore diving can be challenging at times, but if u wait a bit or find a different entrance you are good to go. Boat dives were fantastic. Grandson dropped his weight belt almost of the guys on our dive went into action to help fellow divers out. We were able to retrieve the gait belt and no problem. We kept grandson from shooting to the top. He was 12yrs old amd handled the situation calm as a clam. We would definitely go to Bonaire and Buddy Dive again. We have dove a few other countries and reall prefer Bonaire. The easy shore diving is our favorite place to dive. Soany dive sites and each of them so very different. Thank you Buddy Dive for a fantastic time. PS: we love the dive and drive package.
We had stayed at Buddy's in 2018 and came back again. We were traveling with my father and his friend who have stayed at Buddy's more than I care to admit or even know (10? 15? 20? Times). If you want diving freedom this place is great. Boat diving, a wonderful house reef, drive up tank service, car rental was included with our room and tons of close by shore diving. We also did a nitrox course last visit and this was well run. The rooms are clean, air conditioned. We had a nice kitchen with a stove, microwave, etc. We had a great balcony for hanging out our wetsuits and such. We had a two bedroom and it was spacious and comfortable for the four of us. The only thing I would comment on is it is not as easy to book online as other places. It requires some email back and forth. Not a big deal, but just a heads up if you think you can book your stay with one click! Overall great and I'm sure we will be back! …
Walk out of your spacious apartment, pick up a tank from the stock at the dock and within 10 minutes you are at 10 metres in crystal clear water on the reef. This really is as good as diving gets. Our package also included a pickup truck so we could go and dive anywhere on the island as well as 6 dives of a boat. Simpy the easiest diving I have ever done.
Buddy dive is focused on diving. The setup with the dive shop and the fill up shop make for diving this amazing island very easy. The rental equipment was in good shape, and the staff friendly and helpful. Just don't go there to schedule spa treatments. I would like to be able to give the diving part of the resort five stars, but the lodging is a little old, and a very noisy place to stay. We did have a clean room, with plenty of hot water.
