My husband and I spent a week in Bonaire, staying at Djambo. I booked the dive package, with a truck rental and unlimited air. The trip started with some problems- we arrived quite early on Sunday morning and no one was at the airport to meet us. Small drama about the car company.. We waited over an hour for them to pick us up to get our truck. The staff at Djambo refunded the money we spent on a taxi to get here, we got a truck- problem solved.
The layout of the hotel is nice, essentially a big courtyard with the pool and small outdoor bar in the center. The rooms are quite basic, outer room with sliding doors with a simple kitchen, deck chairs and dining table and chairs. The bedroom has A/C, but they do charge you for electricity if you go over a certain amount. Large walkin closet, small adequate bathroom. The shower has no door or curtain, so we often found water all over the bathroom, spilling out into the bedroom. And the tile floors are quite slippery. The linens were supposed to be changed and the room cleaned midway through our week long stay. They made up the bed, but didn't change the sheets. There was squashed mosquito guts on the side of the sheets, would have been nice if they had been changed, as promised.
Most of the guests during our stay were Dutch or German. It didn't lead to the socializing post-dive conversations that I hoped for. All in all, it was a pleasant stay, central location within walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. Bonaire is really a lovely place to visit. Bring sunscreen and bug repellant and fabulous diving awaits.
