I couldn't figure out how to use your website or I'm pretty sure you're required to use a travel agent to book. Please update this, it's an unnecessary step that most people don't want to do anymore, or just make your website better. Crew was ok, although the boat left as a guy was running down the ramp to board and his gear was already on board and we were telling them to stop. Turns out the crews watches were fast and they basically ditched that guy knowingly. Maybe rethink that policy. Lastly, and most frustratingly, there are no cameras watching the pier area and there are apparently thieves around. I had an expensive camera taken out of the wash bucket on the pier. How can I ever go back to a resort if something that important is so vulnerable and unsecured? The people at the front desk weren't really any help, and it feels like there is no one in charge to really talk to or anywhere to escalate these matters.

Finally ! After 3 or 4 reschedule/ cancellations ! In my past trips to Bonaire I would stay at the condos a few doors down from Captain Don's. I was looking for a new place on this trip and a local dive friend recommended Captain Don's. I'm very happy that I took her advice. Everyone at the resort was very nice. Everyone at the shop was very nice as well. The house reef is excellent. I normally only do shore dives, but this time I did a few boat dives. I had a great time and enjoyed the sites. The boat crew was excellent. As most people do , I rented a truck and did most of my dives around the island. The tanks were available in the morning and the lockers were convenient. It's a well run operation. Traveling these day is a bit stressful with taking test before arriving and before departing. Captain Don's arranged the return test at the resort which was helpful. I made a mistake with my contact information. The lady (I didn't get her name) working in the office late in the day was kind enough to help me correct my error with the testing service. I regret not getting her name, but I'm very appreciative of her help. I think next time, I will tryout one of the ocean front rooms. I look forward to many returns.

Great place to sit with friends have dinner, and a drink. The views of people night diving near the shore are great. The staff was friendly, and let us take our time to really enjoy the ocean breeze as we drank our wine.

This was my first dive trip and it will be hard to top. The staff here is friendly, professional and fun. The dive shop and gift shop are fantastic and the grounds are gorgeous. The cabin that we stayed in was perfect, 2 bedroom, 2 baths and a well stocked kitchen. It was quiet and had a great porch
