My kids learned to scuba here- honestly the two times I stayed here are probably my best tropic memories of my vacationing/adventure life time - Scuba is fantastic and the Inn is perfectly peaceful- Al is the best host ever

This was our second stay with Al at the Black Durgon, First time was January 2011. We are on the island mainly for snorkeling and to sit back and relax in a laid back location. The Black Durgon hit the mark on all of this. The snorkeling right in front was excellent with many fish, turtles and rays. One morning... More

My girlfriend and I went back to the Durgon. We stayed in December of 2010 too... this site is one of the best for diving and snorkelling on the island. We saw so many sea turtles... the abundance and variety of fish and creatures is amazing... birds too! Doris is there in the morning to make you a great breakfast...... More

Just returned from another stay at the Black Durgon Inn and had a great time. There are fancier places to stay on the island, but none have a better host or location. Al offers a great value. I would not consider staying anywhere else.

We stayed in the black durgon Inn for 8 days (march 2013) . This bed and breakfast is price/quality the best you find on the island. You get a clean and nice room with daily breakfast for a very good price. The sea-front breakfast area and garden with jetti is amazing. You can rent dive gear for a very reasonable... More

We just returned from a scuba dive vacation to Bonaire, staying at the Black Durgon Inn for the first time. We decided to stay here based on other TripAdvisor comments. If you need a fancy room at a place with lots of frills and hand holding, the Inn probably isn't for you. But if you're looking for a value hotel... More

Before our trip I did some research on the Black Durgon Inn and read many positive comments from previous guests. Many of the others that were there were repeat guests. We too enjoyed the smaller intimate atmosphere which they provide. Although we aren't divers we still enjoyed the snorkeling right from their pier. There's not much better than sipping your... More
