Had the pleasure of staying in the Upper Level of the Villa Makoshi in this dive resort, great accomodations, well supplied kitchen, great bathrooms, and nice porch. The only thing missing is an ocean view but you look down on the palm trees and the pool, they are super safety conscious, lots of security features, never felt worried at all,...

Stayed here for a week and really relaxed! Villa was all they said it would be but for a little glitch (to me anyway). I like Caribbean breezes but not all the windows had screens. But if you like air conditioning you're in luck. Roy was very accommodating and pick us up at the airport with our INCLUDED truck! Nice...

If you are going to Bonaire for diving you really need to consider Perla Boneriano. Two couples rented Villa Chikitu and were very comfortable, each having the same size bedroom and a bath with double sink and shower. (Although we were issued plenty of towels at check in we had no wash clothes, a problem that was corrected when the...

My husband & I stayed @ Perla Boneriano, for 2 weeks in January. Located in the Hato neighborhood, you are very close to Kralendijk. Rent a car and you are close to everything. We rented Villa Chikitu, which is really a very nice vacation lodging. The pictures don't lie or oversell. In the past, we have paid less and gotten...

A bit too expensive in my opinion but spacious apartments with nice swimming pool. About one mile from Kralendijk Kaya Grande. Opposite to buddy dive a nice place to start your diving holiday. Can't stay without a rental car on Bonaire. (Try easy1rent car rent)

We stayed at Perla for two weeks in January, and this enclave of about six villas is great. The owner was fantastic, the on-site manager was fantastic, and the accommodations were fantastic. This place had everything we crave-value, space(envision a small home/large apartment), location, quiet, comfy beds, and, give us a break, lots of hangers. Savvy visitors to Bonaire will...

One word is enough to sum it all up: Fantastic. My wife and I stayed in the Olivia ground floor apt for three weeks over the holidays. It was our first time at Perla, but our third trip to Bonaire and Gijs provided the best accommodations and service we've ever had on the island - hands down. We would stay...

We had a great time from Christmas to New Years. The host, Gils, was very prompt and accommodating. We traveled with a baby, and the management provided a crib for us. Having been to Bonaire many times before, the positives about the place are: 1) Nice well-manicured aesthetically-pleasing grounds 2) Well-appointed rooms and a nice breezy deck. 3) Very close...

This was our second time staying at Perla Boneriano while in Bonaire and we had a wonderful villa experience once again! We are recommending it to all of our dive friends who travel to Bonaire. We rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa (Chikitu) that was large enough for our family of four. This is a beautiful, gated property, with...

We rented one of the Villas at Perla, and found it to be an excellent choice. The location is close to town as well as to food nearby (Eddy's, the restaurants at Buddy's, and the restaurants at Don's) plus Buddy Dive treated us as if we were resort guests and outfitted us fully. The rooms are spacious and clean, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perla Boneriano consists of seven luxurious Caribbean-style villas, divided into 12 apartments, all situated around a beautiful pool and lush garden and within easy walking distance of that incredibly blue Caribbean Sea. Everything you need for your vacation is within close range of your villa: a tennis court, various shops, dive operations, dive sites, internet cafe, supermarket, restaurants, (beach) bars, a bank and much more. All the villas of Perla Boneriano have several ecological features: solar hot water panels, LED-lights for the pool, solar-powered evening lights, septic tanks to store re-usable water for the garden.
