Belmar/Buddy Dive Experience

Jun 25th, 2019

We recently returned from a very enjoyable trip to Bonaire and Belmar, although it didn’t exactly start out that way. We booked/prepaid directly with Belmar a Grand Deluxe 3 bed/2 bath apartment along with 5 days of 2-tank morning “valet” boat dives, a fairly new dive package offered at the Belmar property only. Prior to booking, we contacted Belmar by phone several times to be certain that if we booked this package they would provide valet diving even if we were the only ones booked (3 divers, 1 non-diver), that they would not mix day divers or cruise ship divers with valet divers and that we would not have to travel to another location to obtain these services. However, during the dive briefing the afternoon of our arrival, it became clear that our “valet” dives had never been scheduled by the Belmar reservation agent and we were not listed on any Buddy Dive boats that week, valet or otherwise. There is no resident boat at Belmar, only Buddy Dive’s smallest boat can pick up divers at Belmar, and their boats at their other properties were apparently fully booked. We were understandably upset and contemplated turning around and going home (to California), and having our money refunded. But Stephanie, the manager at Belmar, assured us that she would work this out and provide us what we booked. That is exactly what happened. Stephanie and her staff arranged for us to have Buddy Dive’s small boat all to ourselves all five days (they picked us up every morning at Belmar, set up our gear, guided our dives, provided towels, beverages and snacks, rinsed our gear, and stored it at Belmar). We would like to thank not only Stephanie, but the dive professionals at Buddy Dive who made this happen and made our trip so enjoyable: Richard, William, Flavia, and Vanessa. We had a great time and we truly appreciate the extraordinary customer service Belmar and Buddy Dive provided for our small group. Although Bonaire is primarily a shore diving location and that is what most divers who visit Bonaire want to do, Belmar’s valet diving service is a great alternative to shore diving and we urge anyone who hasn’t tried it, and isn’t on a strict budget, to give it a try.

Lost count on times we went here... :-)

Jun 11th, 2019

My family has come to Bonaire since 2000, where my daughter was. Small resort very personable treatment. Run by Stefanie. She helped me many times to get the most out of my stay. Also kudos to the counter staff and the dive staff. (nice house reef) They know you, they know what your preferences are. They like to come with solutions to make your stay better. Makes you feel welcome. The apartments (only 20 or so) are well maintained and comfortable. You will find everything you need to cook up a great piece of fish you buy at the fish market.(haha, I think I can cook with the best of them!!) but seriously, you can buy super fresh fish, sit on your patio or balcony, have a wonderful meal with a killer view (a lot less expensive than a restaurant). All apartments have an ocean view. Ground floor has patios, 2nd floor has big balconies. Since it is small, it is very safe. I always left my scuba gear right on the patio to dry. This time I was with my 88 year old mother handicapped in a wheel chair. They measured the doorways for me to make me rest assure that the wheelchair fits through the doors. Matt, the maintenance person suggested to bring a ramp for a small thresshold to go from the apartment to the patio. That is what I mean, they look to make your stay the best possible. You go Matt! :-) Did I mention, they pick you up and bring you back to the airport, that is just 5 minutes away? Great place to get your feet wet Thanks to you all for another great stay in Belmar Bonaire TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Another relaxing visit to Belmar

May 10th, 2019

This was our 4th trip to Belmar, 5th to the island. The units are clean and quiet. We were on the ground floor just steps to the dock and the SCUBA tanks. The office staff were always very helpful and pleasant! Even passed out popsicles one afternoon! The Dive staff was wonderful! Always happy to answer our questions. The only con for Belmar for me is the parking, it is a challenge most times and it seem the traffic on the road has increased along with the speeds. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Perfect location

Apr 7th, 2019

Just spent a week at Belmar Oceanfront apartments. This was the first time my husband and I did any diving without an instructor to guide us. Flavia, from the dive team, was incredibly helpful!!! She gave us great advice and some really good dive site tips. She’s also very sweet.....when she found out it was my birthday, we came back to our room from diving to find a bottle of wine. ❤️ The apartment itself was nice, very roomy with everything a diver could need for drying and storing equipment. The whole place needs a little TLC, but the location, for us, was absolutely perfect. A quick 5 minute drive to town and so close to all of the great southern dive sites. We did 1 boat dive from Buddy Dive center, which is a sister property to Belmar. It was much more crowded and didn’t feel as welcoming. If we return to Bonaire in the future, we would definitely stay at Belmar again. The front desk staff and dive team members were absolutely the best!!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Love Belmar

Mar 29th, 2019

So, just returned from three weeks in Bonaire and stayed at Belmar. We have been traveling to Bonaire for many years to dive and there isn’t a better place to stay on the island. We love the accommodations and absolutely love, love, love the staff. They are the best ever. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
