I grew up on Bonaire in the sixties. This unexpected 6-day trip to Bonaire was my first since 15 years. The Black Durgon Inn, and my lovel room with a view were just perfect for me. Al is a gracious host, who can put on quite a spread for breakfast, while at the same time understanding the importance of coffee...

This was our first trip to Bonaire, and it will not be the last. We were fortunate that a friend recommended The Black Durgon as a place to stay. It's a peaceful little oasis, a secret tropical garden facing the ocean. And the snorkeling, right off the dock, is fantastic; we found none better anywhere else on the island. It's...

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......

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.
