We stayed at the Sand Dollar years ago when we only had a week at a time. We have rented houses for quite a few years. Now we are staying 3 weeks. We checked out the Sand Dollar last year and were surprised to learn that there are no clothes washers available. I guess one can use the laundry service that the Sand Dollar provides. Has anyone used this? Is it convenient and reliable? I don't want to use my vacation hauling clothes to the laundromat in town!

We're staying at Sand Dollar the end of March. A3 and A4 are outstanding studios. Housekeeping was great. Feel safe, especially with the nighttime security. We've stayed at several different locations on the island over the years and are now "hooked" on Sand Dollar. The studio apartments are perfect for the two of us and with Bari reef, BDA, & Chat & Browse so accessible, it's perfect for us. Generally we stay for 2 weeks and I wash the necessities in the sink and hang them out to dry in the ocean breeze.

We stayed at S$ in B7 Christmas before last and loved it. 2 bedroom. AC, TV, hardline internet connection, safe, full kitchen. Very clean and well decorated.

Right upfront, I will say that I am very prejudiced-we own A4 Sand Dollar mentioned above(thanks for the nice compliment). We have stayed at Sand Dollar many times over the last 12 years(both before and after we purchased our unit). It has always been very pleasant-the location is perfect-far enough away to be quiet, close enough to get anywhere quickly. the amenities are close-bank, groceries, ice cream, Chat n Browse(internet cafe),restaurants and shopping. The house reef, Bari, is always full of fish life and easy entry/exit either from the pier or a small sandy beach. The dive shop is 75' from our front door.

Yes Cory there are a lot of individual owners that put there units for rent on their own. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them. However, I have used or been in contact with several owners and it has been a pleasure dealing with them. Sanddollar is a great place to stay. As mentioned earlier, Bari Reef is probably the best reef in Bonaire. If you would like to PM me I would be glad to give you the Info your looking for.
