We stayed in Unit A-8 for two weeks. The Sand Dollar was great. It was our first time in Bonaire and we really appreciated having the overnight security and helpful front desk staff. The unit is situated to perfectly capture the trade winds. I think all the units are designed that way. The cross breeze is strong and absolutely lovely....

Dear Mike: We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your first time at Sand Dollar and on Bonaire! How great you got to see a turtle on your first plunge! For as long as anyone can remember, there have always been a few juvenile hawksbills that patrol the shallows in front of the resort. They are some...

Sand Dollar is a condominium and as such each unit may have different level furnishing and modernization. We stayed at unit E11 and it was fully renovated and well appointed. Don't let the name Sand Dollar Resort fool you, I wouldn't call it a typical resort with manicured ground but instead it has very low key and relaxing atmosphere and...

Dear JC: Thank you for bringing the resort concept front and center. We actually changed the name from Sand Dollar Condominium Resort to Sand Dollar Condominiums about 5 years ago – dropping the use of the word “Resort” – so that people would better understand what we are – and what we are not. Between what we have within the...

We've been staying at Sand Dollar since the early 2000s and will continue to stay there whenever we visit Bonaire. The property is located right on the water and is the perfect place for divers when you have to be on the surface. The staff are friendly and keep the property in great condition and the rooms clean. There are...

Dear Carolyn: We strive to acknowledge all of the comments posted by our guests, but rarely do we see one that presents a better overview of Sand Dollar than we could have done ourselves!

Been going to Sand Dollar condo's for last 20 years. It is still a great reliable option on Bonaire. Nothing fancy but condos are clean and have nice space in them. Each unit is individually owned so home owners can decorate and units can be a little different. All units have full kitchens with appliance, and air conditioning in the...

Thanks for being such a loyal Sand Dollar guest and for your nice post. Also for pointing out to our guests the benefits of having choices in dive operators.

Decent and comfortable accommodations but not fancy which you don't need if you are there to dive. Each unit is owned by an off site owner and managed by the resort. First unit we were in we refused to stay in because of a urine smell in one of the bedrooms. The management promptly moved us and explained that they...

Dear Joe: We do apologize that your vacation started off on this wrong foot. We were not aware, nor did we note what you describe as a urine smell, as we would never knowingly allow a guest entrance to a unit with a questionable odor. However we’re glad the new unit you were moved to better suited your taste. I...

This is my 9th stay at Sanddollar. Not a place for someone who wants hotel amenities as it is condo units. Allows great freedom to come and go and very laid back. Very clean and each unit is decorated by the owner, so décor will vary from room to room. The restaurant adjacent to the Sanddollar is called Eddy's and...
