Casa Iguana blew me away! Such a beautiful home! The apartment is outside of the busy area but still convenient to activities and commerce. The view was spectacular and the diving right behind the apartment was great. The rooms were relaxing and comfortable and the outside deck facing the water was priceless. The manager, Mariette, checked on us and made sure we knew all the ends and outs of the island. She even left a cellphone with her number should we need anything.
The Belmar dive shop is next door which makes getting tanks extremely easy for shore diving. The price is comparable and they have a special for 1 week diving, unlimited tanks. I believe the convenience factor out weighs any discount elsewhere. Everyone in the shop was so helpful and nice. I had a problem with my dive regulator and they took the time to help me out.
The restaurants on Bonaire are outstanding! I did not read any reviews about the food on Bonaire, but we were never disappointed.
The people on Bonaire are so nice and never seemed put-out with silly tourist questions. Everyone made you feel so welcome to their island.
We did get a little lost getting to the apartment upon arrival. The directions were spot-on from the owners, but it probably had more to do with the 4 people in the truck trying to give directions! We arrived after dark and you can get turned around pretty easy. Once I turned my phone's map on, we arrived quickly. The next morning when we went driving around, it was a bit embarrassing how easy the drive should have been. All I can say is try to limit the back-seat drivers input, if possible!
We had the most relaxing vacation here at Casa Iguana and we are already planning our next visit.
