Diving vacationPosted Jul 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great stay at Bonaire Fun apartments. It was two blocks from our dive shop (Dive Friends), and within a ten-minute walk to the downtown area with restaurants, shops, supermarket, etc. The patio and roof area were great for having food and drinks, or for reading. There is a local cat who patrols the area and is very friendly. We loved his presence while outside. The staff were very accommodating and were able to point us to a local fisherman on the block who sells very inexpensive, freshly caught fish. Overall, great experience.

Be very careful-place not helpful in an emergencyPosted Jan 3, 2013
Pros: Place was very clean.
Cons: Owners were not at all helpful when we needed them to be.
Location: Looks ok, but this place is target for car theives and fair amount of noise by locals with fireworks and barking dogs.
We checked in on 12/25/2012. No other cars in the parking lot. We had a Toyota Yaris. No mention was made to us that there had been at least 2 prior incidents at this location. Sometime on the night of 12/26/2012, our rental car was stolen. We discovered it the morning of 12/27 about 7:30 AM. When we reported it to the apt. complex, they did not want us to go to the police. I asked why we would not contact the police and they said that the rental agencies were used to handling this issue. We went to the dive shop to return a tank and they told us to go to the police and they drove us there. When we got to the police, another guy was there to report his personal Toyota Yaris had also been stolen. We filled out a report and walked back to the apt. complex. Upon return, I asked the owner if there were security cameras on the site, his response was, "Why would I?". I told him that the police had asked us a couple of times. He almost yelled at me, "That is not proof.". Then he asked what kind of car we had. I told him a Toyota Yaris & he said it is always that car, usually a battery or tires, not the whole car. The apt. complex did nothing to help us in a very stressful situation. The owner was only worried about how it was going to affect his business, not at all how it affected us who were on vacation to have 'fun'. Avis brought a replacement vehicle &they told us that if they had known we were at Bonaire Fun Apts., they would not have rented us this car.

Good hotel for an affordable price.Posted Nov 25, 2012
Nice hotel for an easy stay! The room had everything I needed. It was in walking distance to the center of the city and from the price perspective it was very convenient.

Bonaire Budget VacationPosted Mar 26, 2012
Pros: It was budget friendly, very safe, and the location was great for access to snorkeling.
Cons: There was a slight odor of urine in the bath room.
Location: You can walk to town and snorkeling sites. It worked out great.
These apartments have a good location even though they are not right on the beach; you only have to walk about two blocks to a great snorkeling site. We saw most the same fish there as we did at the other sites we visited. We were in a studio apartment that was very adequate for our needs. We cooked most of our own meals and were able to get some great fresh fish from the a fisherman just a couple of houses from the apartments. You do need to bring some matches to light the four burner cooking plate. These apartments are very secure and we felt very safe our entire stay. These are apartments so you need to bring most of your own essentials towels, plates, cups, silverware, and pans for two were provided.The sheets are changes once a week and fresh towels are provided twice a week. There was a coffee maker that was great along with the air conditioning. You need to bring insect spray as the mosquitoes are very active especially at night. Conservation is stressed with the water and air conditioning because of the high cost for both. The people that run the apartments were very accommodating and helped us get a rental car delivered. We purchased dive socks to access the water. There are few sandy beaches; most are corals and the socks provided foot protection. A visit to grocery stores can help with meal and drink costs. The apartments are budget friendly. If you are looking for luxury you may want to choose some place else but they worked out great for us.

Fun Apartments - BonairePosted Feb 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
Our stay at the Fun Apartment was very nice; we loved the location just out of town. The apartment was very clean, no noisy neighbors. i could have used heavier pillows or maybe two. The bathroom and toilet were just fine;hot & cold water.The kitchen have sufficient cookware; it's also roomy. There is a fridge but no micro-oven( needed)

Very good value for the money.Posted Jan 15, 2012
Pros: location, staff, quietness
Cons: uncomfortable to hang out in the room
Very quiet and well-maintained; great staff and good location. Two criticisms: absolutely no comfortable place to sit and the vague odor of mildew on linens--I know that's tough to deal with in the Caribbean, but it's a bit off-putting.

Cheap, comfortable and cleanPosted Sep 26, 2011
Roland and Irene are genial hosts, the apartments are clean, comfortable and well priced. Located just 2 short blocks from the beach and convenient to multiple good dive shops and excellent restaurants. They even have an outdoor tub to rinse your dive gear. Would go back.

Simple, Clean, Safe, EconomicalPosted May 2, 2011
A luxury hotel it is not. However, for those on a smaller budget, it's a very good value. The building has character and the owners, who live next door, are friendly and helpful. Small, quiet, peaceful. Being able to eat some meals "at home" saves time and money--alot of money. Cornflakes for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch allowed us to enjoy a nice resturant dinner on the water each night.
