This place is nice and located right он the beach. It has a dive shop & a small restaurant attached to it. restaurant is crappie and the food is suboptimal. The dive show people are flexible and very accommodating. the apartments depend on who is the owner. Somw rooms are nice

We used Sand Dollars in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and were very pleased so we used them again in 2018. This time we stayed for 2 weeks. We stayed in D17 (just remodeled). Sand Dollars offers condos with 1 or more bedrooms. The condo we used this year had 3 bedrooms, one with a king

Dear DiveShop2016 We apologize if there were issues with using the pool after 6:00 pm. There is no curfew on when guests can use the facility, but you do share the facility at that hour with folks coming in for happy hour and dinner. We will also pass along your comments to Dive Friends and request they bring in more 2 lb weights (a must!!) and an additional analyzer. We're super sorry (and surprised!) to hear about the unexpected $500 deposit at Dive Friends? We (Sand Dollar) do our best to pass along as many details as possible in the Trip Planning document that we send all of our guests. However the Sand Dollar Reservation staff were unaware of this policy, so this is not something we have disclosed. So thank you for bringing that to our attention. We will update our documents to avoid any unpleasant surprises in the future!

We stayed at Sand Dollar in 2 different condos that we rented through VRBO. They were in beautiful condition with excellent views of the Klein Bonaire and the ocean. We dove right in front of the condos during the night and day. The staff in the office was professional and

Which building is building C?
A is the furthest south, nearest the Dive Freinds dive shop. F is the farthest north nearest to Buddy dive. C is pretty much dead center. I like the A side best just for quick dock, dive shop access, but it is all good,

Hello Janet M, We're pretty flexible, and A-11 works well for us: screened in porch. No Hammock, but multiple hammock chairs with a beautiful view.

Are there many gluten free options for food?
The island has a very modern grocery store which stocks just about anything you want - even though the labels will be in Dutch! But you shouldn't have trouble finding foods that are gluten free. And there are so many restaurants to select from with diverse menus, so you should be all set

Is there vegan food available?
Yes, most of the restaurant can prepare vegan food for you on request. If you make resrevations on time they can do it even better. Let us know if we can help you making your restaurant reservations.
