About Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire

Buddy Dive Resort is located on the popular scuba diving island of Bonaire in the Caribbean ocean. The islands' closest neighbors are Aruba and Curacao. With divers in mind, they designed 11 modern buildings with 1,2,or 3 bedroom apartments and 1 bedroom studios. As a result, the apartments have full kitchens, bathrooms with showers, furnished living areas, and large balconies or patios. The studios have a smaller kitchen besides a  separate bedroom, and small patio. However, most of your time will be spent scuba diving, enjoying the poolside bar, or relaxing at the raised sand beach.
