“Generally good”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Pleasant, well organized, attractive resort with many activities for individuals and families. Food good but not great, often with long waits. Bar staff delightful. Daily room cleaning poor to acceptable. Dive operation very good. Dive staff helpful; dive masters skilled, responsive and fun. Good access to swimming & snorkeling, though there is no beach. House reef a great plus for diving and snorkeling.

Great week with dive group and dive staff Endro and Orlando. Healthy reefs and lots of fish.
Good food and as we were a group we had the added luxury of ordering for lunch at breakfast....this saved time and allowed those who wanted to make the afternoon dive without rushing.
Also seems to be a locals hangout on Friday evenings.
Great for sunset viewing, too!

This is our 30th year to Bonaire and DIvi Flamingo and Divi DIve. Our vacation is always spectacular thanks to the hotel staff, dive team and the amazing people of Bonaire. The new manager and assistant manager have exciting plans for renovations for the property and the rooms. We can't wait to see them beging to unfold.
The diving was awesome. The boats are in good shape and we were able to dive near and far without any problem except the wind:) Serge, the head of the dive operation runs a tight ship assisted by the dive shop staff, dive masters and instructors. It is first class in every way. Folks we meet have gone other places and they were blown away by the ease of diving and the quality of the dive sights. Divi Dive is a gem!!!

Room Tip: Studio rooms are the best with a small kitchen. They all face the water. Other rooms are very nice...

The resort was very organized and made sure that all of the arrangements for my dive club happened as planned. We got a very complete orientation by Alvine on the first day at the dive shop and a dedicated boat and crew for the week. The breakfast buffet was very good and plentiful and the food at the Chibi restaurant was also very good and reasonable compared to most of the restaurants in town. They helped put together a barbeque party on our last day at a very reasonable cost which made out late day there very memorable. Overall, the dive operation run by Serge was excellent and the hotel was very good.

Room Tip: The rooms had good size refrigerators and the hotel is only a block from the BV Sunshine store which...

Our group of 8 lady divers and 2 snorklers spent last week at Divi Flamingo and had a great time. We had breakfast and lunch included in the package. Reception staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful.
ROOMS: We had an ocean view room which was literally on the edge of the surf, and was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view of the sea and killer sunsets. Two in our group had a studio looking out on one of the pools, which had the advantage of a screened-in porch, a sofa, 2 roomy closets, and a kitchen with a large fridge and gas stove. But it didn't have our spectacular view!

The dive operation is well-run by Manager Serge (who seems to always be there!). He was wise and helpful and went out of his way to help me with some equipment problems I had. Our Divemasters, Luis and Rood, were good underwater guides, informative about various Bonaire topics, and entertaining with their clever jibing each other. The scuba lockers are right on the dock which is so superior to most places where you have to lug your gear back to your room at the end of each dive day. The system for shore-diving is convenient too, with the tank -shack located in the parking lot so you can pull right up to it.

The breakfast buffet was good with omelet-pancake grill for make-to-order. The lunch is menu-order in the lovely colorful open air restaurant. The waitress staff is fine but we all were exasperated at how slow the kitchen was at producing our lunch orders. It was bad for divers who finished the morning dives at noon and only had an hour and a half to be back at the boat. Always had to rush to eat as it took so long to get food. When it finally arrived it was delicious. Try the ceviche which is a meal in itself.

This was my 4th dive trip to Bonaire, having stayed at Sanddollar, Buddy's, and Plaza. I will choose Divi Flaningo for my next trip. Proximity to town is an additional advantage. ALSO WIFI no problems.

Room Tip: Ocean front if view is most important, studios if you want a kitchen.

This was our 4th stay here, with the best dive operation we have ever encountered. Serge does an amazing job running the dive op, and the dive masters are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We always ask for Luis, and will add Enrique as well to our favorites. Everything is meticulously organized, and everyone is willing to go out of their way to exceed your expectations. We have travelled to many places to dive, this will always be our favorite spot, and we will return every year. It's like visiting old friends..... how nice to be remembered.
Resort location is perfect, easy stroll to restaurants and town, and the views are spectacular.
