"relaxing hotel with some reservations"
Dive vacation. Nice grounds. Quiet, relaxing. 15 min drive north of main square in Kralendijk. Get a room that has a.c. in the kitchen area as well as bedroom! Chocolate melted in kitchen-no AC, no screens on windows during rainy/mosquito weather in Nov 2014. Dive shop very helpful esp Bart and Theresa. When we stayed breakfast staff service was helpful […] but evening service lacking--possibly because we only ordered soft drinks and fries? Some guests were more tended to, maybe because they ordered more? Our itinerary specifically stated free airport shuttle transfers (plural). On our departure, the taxi driver said we owed him $30. We paid him. Not sure if he ripped us off or we misunderstood. It was 6:00 am so hotel office was closed. Fair warning: settle this in advance! It was a decent place but next time I think I'll try staying South of Kralendijk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Caribbean Club Bonaire"
Your Review Caribbean Club Bonaire Big accomodations, with a kitchen in a room and another one being the bedroom+bathroom. Air conditioning in the bedroom. There is also a porch where we can have a dinner. Good breakfast with french type bread and fruits. The restaurant is open until night. The included WiFi works only there. The mosquitos were very […] active in the restaurat area at night during my stay. In the last day, a product was being sprayed around the hotel to kill them. You can walk to the shore from the hotel and use a stair to snorkeling or diving (no beach). The front desk is also a dive shop. If it is your first visit to Bonaire, it is not so easy to find the hotel from the airport without a GPS. But having a car in the island is really necessary. A laundry in the hotel would be helpful.

"Great staff, perfect place to stay!"
The staff helped out in so many ways! They arranged a wedding cake for my wife and my anniversary and helped me keep it a secret until the perfect moment. They went above and beyond with the diving and general resort experience. Thank you in particular, Sven, Niek, Bart, and Steffie - you all were great!! The resort is right by the water and a decent […] dive site. For further sites, the rental trucks and abundance of free air tanks makes it a perfect dive resort. Our room was upgraded for free from a studio apartment to a spacious 1 bedroom cottage with a porch using the Run of the House deal! Beautiful location and quiet for relaxation. We would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Strategically Located in Central Part of Island"
The stay was very nice, with the beach and dive location just within walking distance from the resort. Staff was friendly and nice. Rooms were big and comfortable. The happy hour specials at the bar were awesome. The computer at the restaurant was broken though so that was a bummer since I did not have a device with WiFi. Also, the office closes a bit […] too early but thankfully the security guard addressed my needs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to stay in Bonaire"
What a beautiful setting. Our room was just perfect, the food in the restaurant (their cheeseburgers) were fantastic. It is a little ways from downtown but we loved the privacy. Lots of birds to watch and the ocean view was incredible!Genuine Expedia guest review
It's very quiet, relaxing, and people were great. If you are looking for more activities go to Buddy Dive, an affiliate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great if you are a diver"
Good location with pretty much everything on site. Be careful when things are closed because most things were closed Sunday and even the Monday I was there. Food was average so best if you go into town and I wouldn't do the meal plan.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Eveything divers & snorkelers need."
Everything divers & snorkelers need in a beautiful garden setting. Quiet grounds with even a rinse tank and lockers for your gear. Kitchenette had basic supplies. Nice porch with a big table and several chairs. Really enjoyed the pool overlooking the oceanGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great base for snorkeling and exploring Bonaire"
We visited Bonaire off-season and so the island was not-overcrowded at all and the hotel was also pretty empty, which we loved. We arrived and departed in the middle of the night, both times it was dealt with in an uncomplicated manner. The hotel is a little away from the city center and the majority of other hotels. The advantage is that its less busy […] and you are very close to a lot of great snorkel spots in the north. When planning your tours, keep in mind that the road north is one-way (after Karpata). As anywhere on the island you will need a rental car/truck to get around. We got the car right through them. It was in great shape and we had no problems with it. The room was clean and we had a great terrace right out front. Room service came every second day, but that was fine with us. The newer pool has a great view towards the National Park where you can watch the sun set. The staff was friendly at all times and they have great Bonaire adventures on offer (Mangrove Tour, Cave exploring etc.) They also pair up with buddy dive to provide divers with fresh tanks etc. Also helpful, lockers for wet diving/snorkeling equipment. Their restaurant offers all three meals, we only tried their breakfast and dinner. Sometimes you have to ask, since there is no buffet when not many guests are around. But the food was good and the staff was welcoming and helpful. Dinner was great, too. Overall, it's a great spot and would book it again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was quiet and very laid back which is exactly what we needed. The staff was very helpful and kind. location was exellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was decent, somewhat run down but the staff were great, it was very close to a very good diving/snorkeling site, the food so-so, happy hour a bit arbitrary on prices and some amenities missing. However, we were there for the water, not to sit in a hotel room so it more than met our needs. Nice to have the kitchenette and the three pools were […] great for getting rid of the salt water. Excellent view from the one pool. Overall, happy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice place - good value"
This hotel may be a bit out of the way but if you rent a car it's not a biggie. The studio is really nice. It has a nearly complete kitchen, a seperate large bedroom and a large veranda. The internet wifi worked well. I would have liked a large flat panel TV instead of the small old fashioned set but that's the only negative. I've stayed in a number […] of the less expensive hotels in Bonaire over the years and I would rate this as a best value for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Karibisches Flair - aber zu teuer"
Wir hatten ein Meerblickhaus. Tolle Aussicht - auch auf den Pool, welcher Gott-sei-Dank nicht so sehr besucht wird. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet:Gasherd, Großer Kühlschrank, sogar Geschirrspülmaschine, WifI, DVD. Gebrauchsanleitung für das elektr. Gerät fehlte, so dass es etwas schwierig wird. Spannungskonverter für 230 V Geräte. Wenn man es […] am Preis misst sollte die eine oder andere Ecke etwas sauberer sein, obwohl alle zwei Tage gereinigt wird und der Müll geholt wird. Die Gartenmöbelpolster sind fleckig und man findet vom Vorgänger Badehosen darunter. Die Aircon ist gut macht aber dann und wann Geräusche, aber mann sollte beim Schlafen das Ding ohnehin ausschalten. Die Dusche ist schön gefliesst und sehr geräumig. Klasse nach einem heißen Tag. Den Frühstückaufpreis kann man sich getrost sparen. Zwei Wochen die gleiche Auswahl und zu wenig fürs Geld - selber auf der tollen Balkonterasse frühstücken und abendessen ist besser und hat Flair. BBQ am Sonntag ist ebenfalls überteuert. Und man muss immer wieder erinnern das etwas ausgeht oder fehlt. Die einheimische Restaurant Crew ist mehr mit quatschen beschäftigt. Für Taucher gibt es ein eigenen abschliessbaren Trockenraum und Reinigungsbecken. Super. Und direkt davor einen Parkplatz. Lichtblick ist die Dive Station. Gute Ausrüstung. Flaschen Flat und bleibt keine kompetente Auskunft schuldig. Danke Pete und Brat. Obwohl die Lage und das Konzept, sowie die Hütte selbst toll ist bleibt sie dem Preis etwas hinterher.

"Hyvä hinta-laatusuhde sukeltajille"
Kaikki sujui hyvin, ongelmia ei ollut. Henkilökunta erityisesti sukelluskeskuksessa ystävällistä ja auttavaista, buffetmuotoiset aamiaiset hyviä ja runsaita. Muutamina aamuina aamiainen tarjoiltiin pöytiin, joka ei ollut yhtä hyvä. Huoneet perussiistit ja -varustellut. Voisimme hyvin palata samaan hotelliin tulevilla matkoilla.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A divers paradise"
Service was first class - from everybody from reception through restaurant, cleaning and divechamp Nils. It is outside town, but it only takes around 15 minutes to go just about anywhere. If you are diving this place caters perfectly for you - if you are not, then it is also a great place, but you definately need a car. Pools are clean and nice - […] one with a view of the strait between Bonaire and Klein Bonaire. We actually spotted whales from the pool terrace one afternoon! Breakfast is excellent. If the buffet is a little empty, then you just ask for what you want. Accomodation - we were in a new apartment 112 - was absolutely perfect. Even though we were in the third row we still had a view from the terrace. Beds were fine and kitchen was fully equipped. If you are going to Bonaire to dive - then I highly recommend to book the dive package at this place including free air, rental car, accomodation and breakfast. You won't regret it - I wanna go back right now! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Has almost everything you need"
12/21/14 David E Bridgewater, New Jersey
First there is one thing this hotel does not have; close access to the town. As long as you get that, the hotel offers everything you need. The rooms are very spacious. We had a single bedroom with very large bathroom, walk-in closet, and in a front room, a kitchenette and a living room area large enough for lots of dive gear. The room also comes with lots of furniture on an outside wrap-around patio not shared with anyone else. We had the LEAST expensive room - the others had much more space! The breakfast is included and is great with the staples as well as stuff cooked to order. The dive shop is full service and can even arrange non-diving trips. The staff was super helpful in every way. The room comes with a truck so no rental at the airport and the shuttle service was very welcome. It is a close walk to Oil Slick so nice night dives. Wifi was spotty but was good most days. Super place and a great price.
This place is fantastic for all type of people visiting Bonaire; divers, couples, families. Good location with great diving/snorkeling spots close by. You must rent a car or scooter to get around the island.
"Great Time, Good People at CCB"
11/05/14 Debbie P Naperville, Illinois
CCB staff was great to us! Very friendly and helpful. When we first arrived to CCB we thought it was too far out from everything, but after a couple of days the decision was made that it was worth the 20 minute drive to town. There was no congestion and crowds and it was quiet and peaceful. Diving was good all over the island. The North side for diving was very nice, however entering the water can be tricky as the beaches were very rocky but the diving was awesome! The South side was easy entry and once again awesome diving. A side note, check the "O" rings before going to your dive site. Have some extra "O" rings in your spare kit. Keep all your replacements as Buddy Dive will give you replacement rings. It was fun seeing the random donkey here and there. And the goats, lots of goats! Bonaire is an awesome diving vacation. CCB is a nice place and we plan to stay there again.
"Nice, but they need to sort out some issues"
10/18/14 Pseudonym99 London
We went to Bonaire with a group of 16 Brits and stayed at the Caribbean Club on an unlimited shore diving package that included car hire, unlimited tank refills and breakfast. The hotel itself was nice - the rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff friendly and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the patios and used them extensively to socialise. Cleaning was a bit of a problem as our floors and bathroom weren't cleaned seemingly ever. Also, the bathroom consumables (soap, shampoo, toilet paper) weren't refilled until we asked. The pickup truck provided as part of our package was old, very poorly maintained and held together by rust. The drivers seat of the first one they gave me would randomly fly into the backseat. The second truck's headlights failed while were driving back to the hotel at night and we were forced to use the hazard lights to get us back. When I complained the staff seemed to think that I was using this as an excuse to get an upgrade. In the end, I was simply given another poorly maintained truck that didn't have as many issues. I complained to the manager about this he seemed genuinely concerned though he certainly wasn't willing to offer any kind of discount or otherwise take responsibility. The other guests in our group suffered similar issues while other guests, we noted, were given much newer trucks leaving some to speculate that we were being singled out. The tanks were another problem as the 'O' rings regularly caused us issues which lead to frequent trips back to the dive shop to switch out tanks. Easily done, but annoying when you had to wait for your buddy to run back. Again, we complained, and while we they listened to our concerns nothing was done about it. As a side note, if you've got a DIN connector on your regulator, make sure to bring an adapter as the island uses Yoke valves exclusively - the hotel charges $10 per week for this. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Caribbean Club, though I'm not sure we would return.
"Third time guests"
09/25/14 Rick_McNutt Harriman, Tennessee, USA
August 2014 was our third trip to Bonaire and our third stay at CCB. We booked the shore dive package including room, breakfast, airport transfer, truck and unlimited Nitrox through Bonaire Pros. Direct flights from Atlanta on Delta are now available on Friday and Saturday. We were met at the airport by Stanley as usual. He keeps that minivan spotless but could stand to lose a few of the air fresheners. Check-in at CCB went smooth as usual. Note: Buddy Dive provides the trucks and now requires you to take out the additional insurance due to having new trucks. We requested an old truck and waived the insurance. The room was great. Having a full size refrigerator with a freezer and ice maker was nice. Dive lockers and fresh water rinse tanks are located next to the parking lot. Tank room is next to the dive shop and available 24 hours a day. Buddy Dive also stocks the tank room and we did have a couple of times this trip where we had to drive to Buddy Dive because they let the tank room at CCB go empty. Breakfast was good every day whether the buffet was open or the kitchen was preparing plates. Good strong coffee! We love the northern dive sites and CCB is the best location to access them. Don't let the other comments about CCB being remote worry you. The drive to the other end of the island takes only 25 minutes and the peace and quiet is wonderful. Looking forward to our next trip to Bonaire and CCB.
"Good for North Side Diving"
09/17/14 JJFriday White Marsh, Maryland
This is a good place to base yourself for diving the north side of the island if you're OK with feeling a bit remote and 15 minutes away from town (and just about anything else). We originally booked a cottage but upgraded to a penthouse for a waterfront view. Penthouses come with dive lockers next to a fresh water tub and parking lot which is really convenient. Even the penthouses are pretty basic and bare looking but the balconies and views make up for that. Overall, a pretty good value.

We had a very good stay at this resort!!!!! Very friendly staff!! Thank you for the wonderfull stay! We would definitely stay here again next time! Thank you very much for our wonderfull stay in the loverly resort!
"Excellent value for the price!"
08/04/14 Somarha Seattle, Washington
I just came back from a 7 day dive vacation in Bonaire with friends and we all stayed here. The hotel operators were fantastic and so kind. All of us bought the "run of the house", but my room was the only one to get upgraded. The only negative to the resort would be the slow service in the restaurant, but maybe it was because it was the low season and the kitchen literally has only one cook so that when 15 people suddenly show up hungry, they literally can't meet the demand. All of the workers were gracious and accommodating. I don't think I have ever felt that I have received the value I received here for the price. I will definitely come back and stay again. However, I will be sure to pay for the upgraded suite with the full kitchen so that I can cook much of my own food.

Just when you think the Caribbean Club has reached a great level of service.....they come forward and surprise me again. Barbara and Remmert are working hard to make this a customer friendly resort and bringing it to near awesome status. I like the peace and quiet of a small resort...but this always feels like home when i stay here New staff always brings a training period...but the people here have stepped up their game and are doing a great job! House keeping is good....cooks are awesome...the dive staff is fantastic and front office people are fun and efficient! The wait staff are stepping up under new leadership...and Carissa as always makes things very comfortable. Live music is part of the barbeque every sunday and is okay.....a little less loud for me would be great. The spacious dining area allows you to move away from the music. At breakfast..always keep your eyes peeled for the warm fresh cinnamon bread and croissants!! Fantastic!! :) If you dont see what you want at breakfast or dinner...be sure and ask....the staff is very accomidating to meet your needs if they can. Staying 2 weeks in july was very comfortable and i was very pleasantly surprised to be upgraded from the cottage we reserved. If you want the best accomidations....request the deluxe cottage when you make your reservations. I am excited to return to Caribbean Club to see what new and awrsome surprises and improvements they have come up with!! Thank you again to Barabra and Remmert for a great holiday at the resort!!
