Bonaire's first hotel catering to divers remains a favorite, with a PADI five-star dive center offering more than 20 specialty courses. For a slightly higher price than a standard room, studios offer a full kitchen and much more breathing space. Villa suites have spectacular ocean views; downstairs units have massive patios. Rum Runners restaurant serves excellent brick oven pizza. There's little nightlife here other than the usual post-dive chatter before bed. The beach
is tiny but fine for shore dives or snorkeling, with mesmerizing reef formations 90 feet from shore.
