We stayed 10 days in bungalow #1. And we will never do that again. The house is like a jail. all windows and doors have bars, which constantly have to be closed when you are out or during the night. There were no chairs to sit or lie on in the garden so every day we had to drag heavy furniture out and in to sit outside. On a Saturday afternoon three gardeners entered the garden with chainsaws and machetes to remove some big trees and beautiful cactusses, the habitat of many big iguanas. With all the noise and damage around the home we did not feel on holiday. My complaint to Bonaire Exclusief was commented as "an incident". But the incident repeated monday morning at 8.30 am with the same gardencrew, now to remove a hedge with the neighbours.
The common swimmingpool is a mess. Lots of droppings of iguanas are lying on the tiles around the pool and drain into the swimming water during rainfall. And we had some heavy showers these days. Nobody seems to look after the hygiëne of this SWIMMINGPOOL.
The service is poor. For wifi has to be paid.....(!?) and it could not be reached with our modern tablets in the house, so you had to go outside in the back of the garden or to the swimmingpool to get connected. No change of bedlinnen in 10 days. The servant, who did not pick up sms-messages which we had sent because of a late arrival did nothing with my remarks on the gardeners and the dirty swimmingpool, but was willing enough to criticize us on the chairs outside, which had caught some drops of rain. On checkout we made spic and span appointments about the time to return the keys. Nobody I have waited for half an hour afterwards, then left the keys somewhere hidden in the porch. No, Bonaire Exclusief is not exclusive, it was a disaster.
