“Nice bungalow”
Reviewed 12 September 2010

We stayed here for two nights. The room had a bed with mosquito net, air conditioning, tv wifi and kitchen area, which was all very well set out.

As part our introduction we were told about the local shops and about use of the air conditioning and guides when to use as we could incur additional cost if we used the air conditioning too much - as electricity is expensive on the island, we did also have the eletric trip out due to having the air conditioning on at the same time as the kettle..

The room we had was just located at the edge of the complex, which was next too the road - but this was not a problem as there was not a lot of traffic at nights.

We did not hire a car / motor cycle for the two days which made it very difficult to get in and out of the main town. We did try and hire whilst we were out there but all the places we tried either had no vehicles available or had a minimum hire period of 3 days.

We walked to the town, but this took us a good hour and was hard going due to the heat.

Hello,

My husband and I stayed 10 days at Bamboo Bali Bonaire. What a great place! We rented the Java bungalow. Everything was perfect. The owners are really nice and thoughtful.

When you enter on the site of bamboo bali, it's incredible!!! The trees, the flowers, the decoration, the common living space, the sofas, the bbqs, It's perfect.

The first morning we had a meeting with Sebastian, one of the owners, and he told us a lot of things about the island. It was a good start for us. He also took care of all the diving rental and car reservations for us.

At the end of the 10 days, we were very sad to leave our bungalow and the Island.

We would like to go back at Bonaire and for sure, we will rent another bungalow at the Bamboo Bali Bonaire!!!

Thank you to Sebastian and his parents.

An excellent establishment in fantastic gardens with large air conditioned rooms and the surprise of a small kitchen are and large fridge. Its not on the beach but only a 90 second walk to the coast and snorkling. Very friendly family who own and run the lodge... they kindly picked us up from and dropped us off to the airport at no extra charge.

The hire jeeps are basic but cheap.

We negotiated a rate for 3 nights as they state 7 nights minimum.

My husband and I enjoyed a weeks stay at Bamboo Bali Bonaire, August 7-14, 2010. The hotel is exactly as it appears on their website - BEAUTIFUL. After arriving on the red eye from Houston at 5:30a.m., we were greated by a gentleman who drove us to Bamboo Bali. There, Sebastian was up early, showed us to our cottage and gave us a brief tour of the resort. Our cottage was stocked with light breakfast foods, juice, etc. There was also a bottle of wine for us to enjoy later in the week. The cottage itself was impeccably neat and clean. The bed was one of the best I have ever slept on, especially in a hotel - the pillows were very nice also. The owners have installed a water heater for warm showers although you won't always need to turn it on. There is a programmable safe to use for money, passports, etc. Although the resort is always secured as well as your room, it is nice to know your passport is safe. Vera Anno and Sebastian secured our rental truck and dives before arrival. This was our 5th, and I believe, our best trip to Bonaire. Bamboo Bali is a wonderful place to stay on Bonaire. Highly recommend!!!!

My wife and I just returned from a week in Bonaire where we stayed at Bamboo Bali Bonaire. This was our fifth trip to this island and first stay at BBB which was by far, our favorite lodging both on Bonaire and in all of our travels. Sebastian, Anno and Vera were very accomodating, even greating us at 6:00 a.m. when we arrived. Their hospitality did not end there. It even went so far as to pulling our rental truck from the loose coral after I burried it to its axels at a remote dive site. Talk about full service!

The rooms were very clean, private and perfect for Bonaire. Also, the way this resort is set up, we felt very safe and secure. To the extent their website has photos, they are a true representation of how the resort appears. There is no photoshop or weird angles for an optical illusion. The reason BBB looks like a tropical paradise is that it is a tropical paradise.

Always after leaving, we miss the island. Now we miss our friends. This is only temporary. We will gladly return and cannot wait to stay and Bamboo Bali the next time as well.

We stayed here for our Honeymoon from 8/7-8/15 and it was absolutely wonderful ! The family that owns the resort is very friendly and helpful with anything you need. My husband and I needed a cooler for when we went over the Klein Bonaire and they let us borrow theirs without a problem. The rooms were very clean and the beds were so comfortable i don't think I've slept that good as i did while down there. The only thing that we didnt like (but ended up not being too much of a problem) is that they are trying to go green so they give you a certain amount of energy you can use for the air conditioner during the week, so you have to turn your air off during the day and then when you come back to your room turn it on. It usually would take about 45 min to an hour to start cooling down, so what we did was turn it on and jump in the shower and by the time we got all done it was starting to cool down in there. Other than that it was fantastic and would highly recommend staying there.

Just returned from a week in Bonaire. We had a blast! The diving was great but at the end of the day, we always looked forward to our evenings at Bamboo Bali. Our hosts, Anno and Sebastian were very hospitable and made every effort to ensure a pleasant stay. It's a great place to unwind, very peaceful, serene. The landscaping is beautiful and the cottages, clean, comfortable and inviting. Amenities were great, wi-fi included. Best of all was the private patio and hammock to kick back and relax.
