We have visited Bonaire many times, stayed in hotels at first, but once we discovered Bonaire Ocean Front Apartments we never looked back. We stayed in various 1 BR apartments both downstairs (direct access to the pool) and upstairs (private balcony) and were lucky enough to stay in the Penthouse a few times with it's ginormous balcony and spectacular sunset views.
The very first time we walked in we were concerned about the lack of AC in the living room, but that really never was a problem: just open the doors. The AC in the bedrooms is icy cold. The kitchen is more than adequate for a vacation stay. Most apartments are privately owned so the interiors vary quite a bit with some interesting tropical colors.
There is a small dive shop on the premises so getting tanks and rinsing gear is very convenient. You can also make use of their bigger sister locations.
The best thing about BOF Apartments is the LOCATION: on the northern edge of Kralendijk with dozens of restaurants and shops in walking distance, and right on the water so you just put your dive gear on and walk in the water for a great dive.
There is private parking with a gate that is locked at night. To sum it up: the fact that we come back time after time says it all.
