Rooms were large, bright and very clean, with lots of nice furniture and a pleasant patio in front. Be sure to ask for one of the rear apartments, the front ones are subject to road noise. The view is nothing much, but you don't go to Bonaire to hang out in a hotel, do you? No hot water, which is not as serious a problem as you might think, after a day of snorkeling in the sun the cool, almost lukewarm shower was very refreshing. Might be a different story if you dive.
The staff is a bit of a problem. They are friendly enough, and keep the place clean and the bed linens changed, but communication was a bit shaky, and we had to wait a day or two to get the propane tank connected so we could use the kitchenette, which was very basic.
Location is the strong point. You're right across the road from the Eden Beach Resort, which has Water Taxis to Klein Bonaire, and Bari Reef which has great snorkeling and diving right off the beach. Buddy Dive and Don's are right up the road, and two of the best restaurants on Bonaire are within walking distance. Downtown Kralendijck is 5 miniutes by car.
