niche boutique hotel…if you want a peaceful relaxing and romantic place to stay while in Bonaire. We went primarily as a dive trip, our first to Bonaire.
The 2 superior cottages were already booked for the week we went, but the deluxe cottages were still phenomenal and the two jacuzzi hot tubs by the common pool were always empty when we wanted to use, so essentially like a private tub anyway! The 2 communal Weber grills were also great for cooking dinner a few nights. We still had a romantic private dinner at the communal table each of the several nights that we cooked, since the property even when full still only has a few guests (and no kids it seemed). Kitchen well-stocked with coffee-maker, utensils, Tupperware and pots & pans.
Bonaire also has many top notch restaurants and our favourite was Sebastian’s (book way ahead if you want a table on the water).
We had a Scuba diving package with Dive Friends Bonaire which has multiple tank drop off and pick up locations across the island with closest location Hamlet Oasis right across the street from BBB. WannaDive is probably excellent too but we went with DFB mainly due to a friend’s recommendations.
Cold beer in the fridge on arrival & personalized welcome sign on your cottage, coolers to borrow for packing a lunch for a day of diving, and large bathroom with shower to use on your last day after check-out if you have a late flight out and communal sitting area for reading were all most appreciated touches.
Debbie was very helpful before our trip regarding whether we needed help with car rental or scuba booking, and good places to go hiking. Anno was super helpful with any questions we had on site.
2 areas on site also to rinse and store dive gear.
Bonaire seemed like a very safe island (we kept our doors unlocked and windows cracked on our rental car anyway without valuables in the car while diving). BBB seemed extra safe with guest key entry to the premises.
There are other accommodations on Bonaire with more convenient house reef/pier/dive ops on property, but the luxury, attention to detail and peaceful surroundings of BBB made it a very pleasant stay for us. You need a rental car (preferably pickup truck) either way to get to and gear up for the various dive sites. Bonaire is a small island, so almost everything is a short drive away (including the Chinese grocery store up the street for convenience or the huge Van de Keel grocery store closer to the airport on the south).
We would be more than happy to stay again on our next visit to Bonaire.
