iPhone Stolen From Room

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 4, 2011

Our iPhone was stolen off of the bedside table in our room while we were out diving. The only person with access to the room was a member of housekeeping. Other than the front door which was equipped with an electronic lock, the room was secure.

After 27 years of diving all over the world we finally made it to Bonaire!
It offers some of the best diving anywhere and without a doubt the best shore diving !
We had Friends who did not dive and needed the high end resort for the kids under 9. They chose the Harbour Beach as money no object. The plaza is older but has a great beach, great dive shop with a pool right on the beach. The food was good the hotel is on the south side of town close to the best shore diving on the island. The air condioning worked great in our large 2 bedroom full kitchen suite. At a cost of $3000 less than Harbour beach for 7 nights in a only a one bedroom we were fine and could enjoy dining downtown every night! The kids had their own room,
tv and privacy. Plenty of room for dive gear. Easy walk to the beach for
sunset cocktails. Oh great refrigerator to keep the beer and wine ice cold.
Cleaning service every day and gated parking. It is 15 years old but they
are beginning an upgrade at this writing 4/10. The package included 6
tanks of boat dives for two divers, open water certification for out kids,

great SUV with tank rack and leather and unlimited shore diving. For over
$400 per night less than a one bedroom it is the way to go if you don't need someone filling your ice bucket like Harbour.

Unique Quality: Pool was great and right on the beach. Great bar on the beach.
Shore diving right on the beach. If you love to dive you have to go to Bonaire.
If you want value without going to the low end the Plaza offers it.

Directions: Just South of town near the divi casino.

Our stay started badly when we were not met at the airport by the hotel even though a transfer had been included in our package - not great to be hanging around at 2 a.m.

Breakfast the next day was an equal disappointmnet - $15 each and they did not have any milk for coffee. I complained to the Manager about both the lack of milk and lack of transfer and was told - it would be investigated and things would get better.

By 2pm that day things had deteriorated further - the bar was out of bottled water and coca cola. There is simply no excuse for this regardless of the fact that the hotel bang on about being on an island and some supplies are scarce - the supermarket 15 minutes walk away is well stocked.

The final straw was getting food poisoning from a meal in the Banana Tree. Needless to say we were disappointed and felt well and truly ripped off. We stocked up on food from the supermarket and did not give the hotel the satisfaction of taking another penny from us.

The rooms are of a good size if you opt for a Grand Ocean View but make sure you get an upstairs one if you still feel the urge to saty here. The bathroom is also big but not the luxury advertised on their website.

Keep all valuables locked in the hotel safe - even though you have to pay a couple of dollars a day for the safe key it is certainly worth it.

Standard rooms look like a down level accomodation block and the area smells of sewage. The grounds consist of a few plants between buildings (there are 200 rooms on just 12 acres) and a rather nice inlet between the accomation and the main building.

By the way - I never did get an apology or explanation from the Manager as to why we had not been met so obviously no compensation

Directions: Walking distance from the airport - watch the planes fly in over the beach!

Plaza

by written on February 25, 2003

Plaza is probably the largest place to stay on the island. They got both rooms and condos and everything you could possibly need is on the premises - restaurants, bars, fully functional dive op, exercise room, health spa, internet access, a convenience store, and even a casino. Of course, there's also the pool and a nice sandy beach with plenty of loungers in the shade under the palm trees.

Unique Quality: There aren't many things at the Plaza that I found fault with. The food was very good, no matter which restaurant at the resort we ate at. The service was great as well, all around. Rooms were kept clean and cool (we stayed at the condos, but I'm sure that regular rooms would be much the same). Landscaping was very nice. Perhaps the only thing that could bother someone there is the occasional slowness in getting things done. But then again, you're likely on Bonaire for a vacation, so you should be on island time anyway :)

Directions: Right next to the airport, South of Kralendijk
