first time in Bonaire

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with 2 other couples. Resort was very upscale compared to other resorts on other caribbean islands we've been to. Clean rooms. Staff for the most part very friendly and helpful. Pools clean! Lion's Den Restaurant which is now part of Buddy Dive has excellent food! Bella Vista Restaurant has good food also. If you use wash cloths to bathe, you may want to take your own - resort doesn't provide them.
