Please note I did not stay at Buddy Dive, only used their dive shop, boats, rental shop etc. The resort overall is pretty good, but not great. I would rate it a typical assembly line dive operation. They have a few boats, all big, each with a crew of at least two, sometimes four. It is definitely a "get you in get you out" type of operation. People were mostly polite, but sometimes a bit curt until you get to know them, unlike a lot of places on Bonaire where the default is on polite and ... Read more

Had a fabulous time with great service and amazing facilities. We had access to nitrox on demand and the flouresent night dive was just wowser! Never seen coral look like that ever Great opportunity to participate in the coral foundations activities and was part of a team that transplanted coral cuttings. Thank you to the buddy dive team - great holiday made possible by them.

Recently returned from a week long stay at the Buddy Dive resort in Bonaire. We travelled with a group of 10 and split two 3-bedroom apartments. The rooms, pool bar restaurant, and service were all first-class. The single complaint I have about the resort is the low quality of the Wi-Fi service. Where you are on the resort, or what side of the building your room is on, will greatly affect the quality of your service.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo.when we got in they had apparently had just painted and stained the condo. Besides the smell of fresh paint and stain the condo was clean and most of the curtains had been put back up. The dive shop and staff were great. The drive thru tank pick up and return was fantastic.overall the stay at Buddy dive resort was good. The breakfast buffet had fresh fruits and pastries also an egg station that was staffed by a very nice lady. I would recommend this resort for all ... Read more

When you arrive you will get lots of keys- room, safe deposit, truck rental & dive locker, so would suggest bringing a ring or lanyard to put them on. We had a one bedroom with twin beds on the ground floor. The AC was in the bedroom & we were next to stairs so you can hear people outside but it wasn't that noisy. Our AC wasn't working one night & stayed in 2 bedroom which was nice, big, AC in bedrooms & living area with nice balcony, door to room at top stairway leading to this room only, so ... Read more

I would love to give Buddy Dive four or five stars: this is the second time we've stayed here, the dive operation is top-notch and the accommodations and on-site restaurants are also good. Unfortunately, I've spent my entire trip when not diving struggling with their WiFi. Two days it was just out entirely, the rest of the trip it's been sporadically available from our room and not at all from our bedroom. We've had to camp in the restaurant or at the front desk to get reliable WiFi and even the... Read more

We stayed a week in a 2 bedrooms apartment with a limited ocean view and swimming pool view.. We found things that we really liked, but we also found things that needs improvements.. We dislike..: - The fact that we need to rush to register for boat dives.. The boats are up to 16 people and get full quickly. - The service on the boat is not as good as others diving resorts .. Like Compass Point in Grand Cayman. We need to do all.. tanks setup etc.. Each boat dive you pay is single thank.. E... Read more

A full service dive resort with their own boats, scuba shop, and nice comfortable rooms. Some improvements need to be made to bring me back again. First the maintenance on the dive boats. Our group was assigned the dive boat Red Tide. Smaller 28 ft boat that had some problems starting. We were all on the boat and the engine wouldnt start. taking a scuba diving weight and pounding on the starter is not the recommended way to start the engine. Finally help was called and a battery starter was brou... Read more

We stayed here for 2 weeks in March, 2016. Just a terrific place to stay for diving. Did their dive and drive package and the drive through tank fill makes everything so easy. We had a 1BR apartment that was basic but clean. The breakfast every morning that is included is wonderful. The staff was universally wonderful. I'd rate them a little higher if they would put a little more money into the apartments-they vary quite a bit in quality. Ours was just fine, but another couple we traveled ... Read more

This was our second time at Buddy Dive and again we weren't disappointed. The staff is great. They're always friendly and accommodating. The restaurants are good and convenient without bloated resort prices. The best part of course is the diving. From a quick orientation to flexible boat schedules to the most convenient drive through for tanks, BD is truly a diver's paradise. We also took our 1 year old and couldn't imagine a better vacation with her. The convenience afforded by BD let us be f... Read more

We stayed for a week in a 3 bedroom condo. The condo was nice, but not exactly what I would call luxurious. It was perfectly acceptable for a week long dive trip and had all the amenities you could want. Housekeeping was great and kept our space nice and clean. The dive shop and pier were great and the dives we took from the pier were surprisingly nice We did 9 boat dives with Buddy during the week, and all the boats we took (Little Buddy and My Buddy) were nice and clean. The dive masters we h... Read more

I am sorry to report that there was/is a THIEF at Buddy Dive, Bonaire. I recently spent two weeks (4 June - 19 June) at Buddy Dive with friends. This has become an annual event for us and we have always had a good time. I noted that between last year and this year several renovations were completed. One such renovation was the addition of lockable dive lockers. This should have caused a light to turn on in my head and prompt me to ask the question, why go to the expense of adding lockable locker... Read more

We enjoyed our time at Buddy dive. It was so easy to rent a car with the room to do shore dives around the island and to do boat dives at the resort. It almost felt like a summer camp for divers! Blennies has pretty good food by the water. Ingridients restaurant was fabulous!!! I would go back again.

We stayed at Buddy Dive in May 2016 for the third time. This time we brought two friends with us. The diving was awesome as always and the facility now has lockers for gear storage. The dive through staff is always a highlight. They are friendly, offer tips and remember me from previous visits. The staff at the dock is great also. They provided an "O" ring for my husband's computer transmitter for no charge and did so quickly and with that trade mark buddy dive smile. The food is okay at Blennie... Read more

The reef in the backyard is so nice, you really don't need to go to many other places. The dive staff is very helpful and we plan on going back. Also, don't sleep in too late as the breakfast buffet is a great way to start a diving day. The locker system is a good idea and lets you leave you stuff very close to the water. They might want to add a fan down there to help stuff dry out a little bit better. The room was nice with a great working A/C and a view that can't be beat. Overall we we... Read more
