“#1 on the island”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

just returning from 2 weeks on Bonaire, from what was our 5th trip to the island. Bridanda, in our opinion, is the place to stay. New, modern, well-located, friendly owners. A dive couple in our 50s, the studio was our only option, as we booked a little later than we had planned. The room was perfect, in fact, when we stay again, we will likely book the studio again...we looked at the one bedroom and felt the studio best fit our needs. The two bedroom suite was really, really nice, should you wish to travel with more than 2 people. We had a package, with an AB Rental Truck and Wannadive unlimited tanks. Danny and Danielle, the owners/operators, are charming, knowledgeable and accommodating. On-site bar/eating area. All in all, we highly recommend it!

Bridanda is centrally located just north of Kralindijk, but set off the main road about a quarter mile. The complex has free standing buildings centered around a pool, along with fantastic landscaping that makes your room feel private.

The price is competitive for what you get - living quarters, a kitchenette and batch. My dive buddy and I shared an efficiency. It was a bit cramped / claustrophobic, but would be great if you were on a romantic trip (we weren't). Ours had a mini-fridge and a full-sized stove / range. There was no microwave. Our room was serviced twice during our week-long stay (they even did the dishes!). We left the windows open during the day, but at night the air conditioning was effective in cooling the room.

If you're mostly looking for a place to sleep and to lounge by the pool at the end of your day, Bridanda is perfect. They also have rinse tanks and a storage room for your scuba gear.

Manage your expectations: Bring your own shampoo, conditioner and soap, as none is provided. The bathroom is small and there is no shower curtain, so our floor was constantly wet. Make sure you keep the screen door closed, as mosquitoes can be a problem. The air conditioner does not have a thermostat, so it runs at whatever setting you chose before going to sleep - we never did find the right setting to get a consistent, comfortable temperature at night. We noticed the owners socialized / conversed with other (Dutch-speaking) guests, but we really didn't view them as a resource. Unlike similar places we've stayed (e.g. Inns or B&Bs), they didn't engage with us.

Nearby: A drug store is nearby along the main road. Between 2 Buns and Eddy's are two restaurants within walking distance - and we'd recommend both. There is a (new) big grocery store on Kaya Industria (south of town center) where you can stock up on all of your groceries.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a 1 bedroom. The efficiencies are pretty small.

A little bit late with the review…sorry!
Last November we had a great stay in Bonaire at Bridanda Apartements and hope to come back again!
We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow which is ideal for 2. The accomodation is well appointed and stylish and you have everything you need. The bungalows are scattered around a nice swimming pool surrounded by palms which make a relaxing sound when the breeze is blowing.
The resort is new and very clean. We didn‘ t even expect but every 3 days linens and towels were changed and the apartement refreshed.
Danny and Danielle were very helpful and suggested a good restaurants selection to have dinner in Kralendijk.
We can definitely only recommend this resort !

It is really depends on what your goal is. Me and my body came to Bonaire for diving, hiking and as it turned out for windsurfing. I cannot say anything negative about this place. Nice, small, quiet and well maintained it served our purpose to have a good rest after busy day. Bridanda has pool and room to dry out your equipment. It is not on the beach but it’s not a big deal. We left it in the morning and came back later around 11 p.m. We rented studio which was plenty enough for two people. Beds were small, single. It is only one complaint from me. I like to have them at least queen size. Everything else was just fine. I would recommend this place to friends.

My wife and I stayed at Bridanda in December and couldn't have been more pleased. We stayed in a 1BR bungalow which was modern and well appointed with all the necessary amenities included. The property is absolutely beautiful in a secluded location but still close to beaches, diving, and restaurants. The complex contains a beautiful pool, large dive locker, and an on-site, well stocked bar. Again, we couldn't have asked for more from the property and were extremely pleased with our choice.

Last but certainly not least, our review would not be complete without a thank you to Danny and Danielle. They were great throughout the whole process from booking our trip until our departure. They had an uncanny ability to be available when we had questions and were helpful in every way. They couldn't have been more friendly and we appreciate their hospitality and for sharing their beautiful apartments with us. Definitely one of the best vacations we have had the pleasure to enjoy.

Sorry for the late review. We stayed at Bridanda in Sept of 2012, absolutely loved the place. Bungalows are very clean, new and well furnished. Had the necessities that you need to stay in Bonaire for a prolonged period of time. It's also good to know that the apartments are environmental responsible. Danny and Danielle have incorporated many sustainable features into the building of the apartments. Love the fact that they are doing what they can for our environment. We will be coming back soon.

Thanks,

Brian and Adrienne.

We stayed for 2 weeks in Bridanda apartments to escape our busy lives and to find a relaxed time. The apartment looks clean and well furnished and are situated around a nice garden with pool and lots of palm trees. The apartments are placed so you have good privacy by using plants.The complex itself is conveniently close to the town´s city center, however a car is needed to get to it (you need a car anyway on the island). The owners gave us a warm welcome and during the day you have a lot of company of the lizards. What you see on the website is exactly what you get!
