Have stayed at Buddy's, Sand Dollar, and Captain's several times a piece but looking to try something different. Think I have it narrowed down to BOA or Belmar. Can anybody do a heads up comparision for me. I also read somewhere that BOA had vouchers for daily breakfast at It Rains Fishes, anybody hear of that? It's nice to have ready breakfast in the am b4 heading out.

I think Bonaire Oceanfront is the best location on the Island. The views are unobstructed. It is within walking distance of everything and the units are well stocked and have airco,cable and WIFI. Plus Buddydive has a onsite dive shop.

It Rains Fishes no longer serves breakfast...so doubt that part's still valid.

Robert..I've personally stayed in both (along with many many other places on the island) ..IMHO No contest between the two..Belmar in my book!

Belmar: nicer facilities; far from town; close to southern dive sites; more coral on reef

We have stayed at BOA at least 5 times in the last 7-8 years. Have never had a bad experience. Great location, reasonable rates, good service. WiFi can be iffy. If we hadn't bought our own place we would be staying at BOA again this year.

I agee with Deb. The rooms at Belmar are nicer, more upscale than BOA and Belmar is right on the ocean.

you should try the house on the south side of belmar you can use the dive shop next door , in my opinion the house is much nicer and bigger as well as less expensive .Its called dream bonaire just google dream bonaire ,the caretakers name is ron (great guy)

I say cheers for Rob & Chrissy! I suspect they don't have disagreements as to what place is better.
