We had a great time at Djambo. Dick & Liselotte and Martin & Ilse are the owners, they're very friendly and one of them is always around to answer your questions (they live on the property). The rooms are very spacious, have a great kitchen and are super comfortable. We were on the second floor and had the perfect caribbean breeze... My husband I especially liked how the room was set up, with the bedroom being able to shut off completely (if you wanted to turn on the ac at night) and the kitchen/dining/living area being more open air with big sliding doors that overlooked the pool/courtyard.
I believe that most of Djambo's customers are from The Netherlands, but I would highly recommend Djambo to Americans. Especially if you are an American who prefers a smaller boutique hotel, rather than an all inclusive or a large resort.
One other thing that we found really great about Djambo was that they offered a dive package, which was the room, the rental of a four-door truck and unlimited tanks through a local dive shop, Dive Friends. Djambo's location is also great for diving. They are just south of town near all of the great southern dive sites... But they are still close enough to the city center for a walk downtown to eat...
Other details to mention... the pool is great, large and SO refreshing after a day of diving. And it's so fun to sit at the bar with a drink and chat with the other guests and the owners.
