Divi -right decision

Jump to last reply

My husband and I snorkel and I also dive. We booked a deluxe oceanfront room at Divi Flamingo for January. In shopping around I liked the prices and (for the price) the looks of Eden Beach and Sun Oceanfront Apts. Has anyone stayed at any of these three places? What are your experiences? Is Divi worth the extra money? We would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    I would personally go back to the Divi Flamingo in Bonaire anytime. I had an oceanfront room, and altho they are not deluxe like the Ritz, they are right on the water, AC works, clean and spacious, and near a pretty pool. You are only 6 block walk to town with all the restaurants there. The dive shop at the Divi is well run and takes good care of you. I travel solo and always had good experiences on their dive boats. Obviously in apartments, they are cheaper because you don't have the hotel amenities - can also save money by cooking, but I don't want to cook on vacation. Divi does have some timeshare/kitchenette rooms if you do want to cook.

    Don't expect long wide beaches in Bonaire - they don't exist. The Divi actually does have a small beach for sunning. The diving is easy and not too expensive. The one warning I hear consistently is, if you rent a car, don't lock it and don't leave anything in it - petty theft from rental cars is apparently common. Get a waterproof pouch and carry your money, etc right into the water with you. However, I felt safer walking in Bonaire alone than on many islands - saw no panhandlers or street people, everyone was friendly and said hi, and a number of good restaurants right along the main drag in Kralendijk, so I never rented a car - altho I might the next time just to see more of the island.
