Divi Flamingo Beach Resort and Casino

Reviewed 24 August 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Divi Flamingo Hotel for the first time over ten years ago. We returned. We then decided that we liked everything about it, and actually bought a timeshare on the property. The location really is as good at it gets: right on the water, just south of Kralendijk, the center of activity (read shops and many excellent restaurants) on the friendly island of Bonaire. "It's just a six minute walk from downtown." Just about everyone told us that, and it's absolutely true. It's also even closer to At Sea, voted the Caribbean's best restaurant in 2013. At the Divi, we appreciate the hard-working staff who keep our accommodations, I.e. landscaping, housekeeping, linens, restaurants, pools beautiful and clean. When we had a problem with our room phone, the maintenance person came twice, the second time to be sure it was working. When there were still problems, he came back in the evening after his scheduled work time when the next island phone company technician was available to work on an outside line. The office staff, activities folks...everyone is most courteous and solicitous... and fun! A five star diving shop is located at one of the resort's four docks for water entry. My husband and I don't dive, but have been welcomed as snorkelers when they have room. Also the Woodwind Sun Sail and Snorkel service docks on a Divi pier. It's been rated #1 snorkel operation on the island for several years... and it comes to our front door! In keeping with Bonaire's appeal to water types, the island has little night life. The Divi however does have a good restaurant (full bar). Some nights as well as daily breakfasts, service is buffet-style; all locations on the water. And I can't forget the full-service bar near the coral beach, with quick food from the restaurant available. Divi also features a casino, but my husband and I aren't gamblers. I've hesitated to write this review for many years, simply because we'd like to keep the Divi a secret. It's unfair though to all the people who make the island's original resort a wonderful, refreshing vacation spot. We've already got our flight and room reservations for next year.

Room Tip: There are both ocean-front and garden rooms in the hotel. My husband has stayed in both and reported...

The best thing about the Divi is the rooms are right on top of the water. You can spend the whole vacation on the balcony to view the ocean. We took a boat ride straight from the pier of the hotel. A protographer a with us and took pictures underwater when we were snorkeling. Best trip yet.

Room Tip: Go for the ocean view.

We've stayed at the divi flamingo several times now and are always equally delighted. Of course we'd be happy in a tent on that shoreline but the divi is simple, basic, clean and the dive operation can't be beat. The lockers right on the diving pier are super convenient. We didn't eat at the resort this time except the breakfast each day, unless you count the food we picked up at the Sunshine grocery store a block away and and ate for lunch sitting on our terrace between dives. Unless you opt for a timeshare rental, spring for the waterfront if you can. The view is unbeatable. We're counting the days until we come back --though we understand they have been taken over by a new company and are terrified that they are going to destroy everything we love about the place. Please, anyone who visits after the transformation takes place, let us know!!!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and feedback. We appreciate your loyalty to our hotel and are very glad you come back year after year. We wanted to make sure you knew that the Divi Flamingo has not and is not planning to change companies. We do have a new General Manager that started this past June and he was hired by Divi Resorts. We have also begun a refresh of the hotel which is a renovation project that will only improve our public areas, landscaping, pools and guest bathrooms. We have made some changes already like the start of a beach in the grass area in front of the Casino, new signs at our entrance and a painting and refresh of our entrance gate and Dive Shore Station. The renovation will make the hotel more fresh and will give our guests more places to relax in the sun and more updated pools to swim in.

I hope this clears up any misunderstandings regarding the hotel's future. We are very excited about our renovation and look forward to our return guest's, such as yourself, feedback when it is complete.

Thank you again for your comments.

Kind regards,

Melissa Hilgers

It was a very nice place to stay - diving was very good and very easy. The restaurants were all good although the service at the bar was slow at times.
Rooms were neat, clean, and comfortable - a very nice laid back resort at a reasonable price within walking distance of Kralendijk.

We love the Flamingo resort. It is everything we are looking for. Great location, good food, nice staff, within walking distance to town, great diving, boat diving at it's best, Serge and the Dive staff really know what they are doing. This was our 22nd. year going to the Divi

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!
