We stayed for a week in April 2018 at the Sand Dollar Condominiums. We had a 1 Bedroom condo on the second floor with screened porch (D16). It was very spacious with a huge bed and newly renovated master bath. The rest of the unit is a bit dated but in good condition with full kitchen and stocked with all the gear you need to cook if you want to do that on vacation. The view is gorgeous looking over the grounds and water. Friends Dive Shop is just next door and sooooo convenient for shore diving right behind the complex on Bari reef. The dive shop staff is very helpful and easy going. They also have other shops on the island and you can exchange tanks at which ever one you happen to be near. We were able to swim, dive and snorkel right off the back of the property via multiple entry sites with steps. We could also sun bathe or sit under a shelter right on the water with paved walkways and resident iguanas! The property is located just far enough from downtown to be quiet and private but just a short drive to shopping and many restaurants. The staff were welcoming and very nice. We had no problems with the unit and would come back again.

Thank you for posting your review. You noted the renovated bathroom, so I wanted to mention that 2017 was the year we asked the individual unit owners to collectively focus their efforts on upgrading all bathrooms. It has made such a difference! We hope you are able to come back and enjoy the property again in the future.

This trip was like my previous four trips to Bonaire, wonderful! The Sand Dollar staff and condos were great. I always know things will be as advertised at the Sand Dollar, love this place and people!

Room Tip: Clean and well kept!

We spent a week at this seaside hotel. The room we stayed in was clean but a little run down. The bathroom had some cracked tiles. They do not provide shampoo so bring your own.
The kitchen had all the pots, pans and plates for you to cook your own means.
Housecleaning came every other day.
We had very little contact with the staff.
The TV was non-functional but this didn’t detract from our vacation as we spent most of our time diving and hanging out with friends.
The room AC worked flawlessly as did the WiFi.
Our package included a simple buffet breakfast but you can order off the menu and pay for more fancy fair.
The room had a safe that functioned adequately after we figured out that the adhesive tape fix on the locking mechanism need some shoring up.
If you are a SCUBA diver, the hotel has a dive shop and a dive site right off the beach on its property.
Altogether, we enjoyed our dive vacation.

Great unit. Everything you could possibly need is there. And as in all units at the Sand Dollar just a short walk to the steps going into the water. The owners of the unit were very helpful with tips and suggestions for restaurants, things to do and locations for different sites for snorkeling and what to expect when you get to each site. Everyone at Sand Dollar and Bonaire for that matter is very friendly.

Room Tip: F10 well furbished and everything you need is there. Wonderful view.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. The people on Bonaire are indeed, very welcoming and friendly, something you don't always find on Caribbean vacation islands. Because Bonaire developed slowly, with the local people prominently involved, there isn't that feeling that foreigners - be they European or American - have taken over the island. Thank goodness! So our local population enjoys sharing their island and making our visitors feel welcome. We hope to see you back again.

Great location..easy access to everything. Restaurants nearby and Dive Shop across street. Dive Friends is adjacent and very convenient, including dock. Comfortable beach. I don't think you can do better for the money for a condo in Bonaire.

We do our best to ensure that we offer the best value for the dollar possible while still offering amenities beyond the "standard" condo complex. Glad you enjoyed it thank you!
