Fodor's Expert Review Golden Reef Inn

Kaya Den Haag 7, Hato, Bonaire

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This low-rise lemon-sherbet-hue complex offers comfy rooms and a genuinely intimate feel. Though it is not directly on a beach, the facilities of nearby Eden Beach are available to guests, and diving expeditions leave directly from the hotel. Cozy rooms are homey and offer a surprising range of amenities, from complimentary breakfast supplies in the fridge to a nice supply of reading materials. Owner Liz Ginocchio takes pains to ensure that guests are comfortable and even takes care of airline arrangements and car rentals on behalf of arriving guests. Her stated policy is "guests first, paperwork after."
