Carib is timeless (meaning the positive feedback in the archives is still accurate). Bruce runs a wonderful establishment and it is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from the hordes yet still have oceanfront dive access. The rooms have all the amenities you need at a very fair price. I had no complaints the time I stayed there.

Carib Inn doesn't offer nitrox (unless that has changed in the past year). We like the resort so much we always try to stay there anyway, even though we go without our geezer gas. -Nancy

+1 on the positive comments about Carib Inn. I've not actually stayed there, but I stop in every trip, and more than once Bruce has saved my bacon and my trip! The lack of unlimited nitrox has kind of been a deal breaker for me, but love everything else.

Nancy and Tom,

Just one more comment re: nitrox. No, they didn't have it when we stayed there, so we just got air thru Buddy Dive. Not a huge deal, since we dove all over the island so hitting up the drive thru at BD was not a big deal, since we were driving around anyway (and the island isn't exactly huge). The only downside is that since we didn't get our air thru Carib, we couldn't do boat dives with them. (But we don't boat dive generally in Bonaire anyway, so it wasn't a big deal for us.)

Not having Nitrox right at Carib Inn will not slow you down. Do your dives through Buddys. They have 4 sites to pick up tanks from north to south and you can even do the drive-thru at the resort. You will have to drive by at least one Buddys site to get to any diving, so it's on your way.

There are several places like Harbourview on Bonaire. I have stayed there and discovery point many times . Once we discovered Bonaire I have only been back once. Check with sunbelt realty.
