wonderful dive resort

Jul 21st, 2019

Rooms (condos, really) are clean, comfortable and well-suited to a diving resort...not too fancy, but completely functional! The resort is nicely maintained, with two pools, two restaurants and an on-site dive shop. The staff is very friendly and helpful. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great Dive Resort. Best in the world?

Jul 6th, 2019

Buddy Dive is neither a super simple resort and neither sophisticated. I would say it has all the amenities you’ll need at a affordable price. Nice and spacious room and bathroom. AC works well and, at least in my room, the WiFi was very reasonable. Attention: no room service, so keep your room in order. This is obviously a dive resort, so you’ll breathe Scuba! Breakfast is very good with many options and an omelette station. They also have a nice place for lunch and dinner (BBQ Friday’s night). Another restaurant on site is a bit more sophisticated and serves a wider variety of entrees. The Dive operation works well. Every diver, regardless of their certification level is required to go through a “test dive” at the hotel reef (beautiful) before doing any other dives - kind of annoying for experienced divers and you lose a half-day of diving... Boat dives fill up quickly and you need to sign-up. I rented a pick-up one day and hired a DM to show me two very cool shore diving sites. Pick-ups are great, but be sure you have a dive buddy. When diving from one of there boats, be sure your tank has 3000 PSI, once they normally do not and you need to change. On their behalf, they do carry spares. DMs are all very friendly and always willing to help. All in all this is a great dive resort, but with some flaws so I’m not sure about being ranked #1 in the world. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great restaurant

Jul 5th, 2019

Lovely food and service. Pity we didn't go with bathing suits as we could have had a dip in the pool after lunch. Particularly loved the decor and ambience in the restaurant, with it's wonderfully designed thatched roof. Airy and delightful. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Fabulous all around!

Buddy Dive Resort is my favorite resort in the whole wide world! Every service area, from the front desk to the dive shop on the dock, are outstanding. The Lionfish Chowder at Blennies is excellent! We stayed with a group of 70 divers. Never felt crowded. Spectacular diving. Cannot wait to go back. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Buddy Dive does Scuba diving the best.

Jul 2nd, 2019

On one of the dive boats, the discussion turned to other dive resorts on Bonaire. Three people said they tried another dive resort and went back to Buddy Dive. In my opinion, this is because Buddy Dive does the little things better. You have a broken BCD, their Dive Shop fixed it for free. You want a couple extra O rings for a shore dive, the guys an the tank station hand you a couple. Once when my wife had some problems with her buoyancy they had a woman dive master accompany her on her next dive and the problem was fixed. The breakfast buffet and restaurant on the premises are top notch. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
