We had a thoroughly wonderful 7 days at this lovely hotel! Our room was similar to a small apartment with a bedroom separate from the living space. It's very hot in Bonaire, but the A/C units (and ceiling fans) did a wonderful job of keeping our space cool and comfortable. The king size bed was very comfortable (it even had a small bed in the room as well for those traveling with children). The bathroom was very functional, with a very spacious shower. We took advantage of and really enjoyed the pool, which looks rather small in pictures but was actually a decent size. Viktor and Miranda were excellent managers/hosts, making breakfast each morning and patiently answering all of our questions! Even prior to our stay, Viktor provided great communication via email. The hotel is situated a short walk away from the ocean, and close to restaurants, bars, and downtown. We never had to drive to a meal, unless we wanted something further out, and there's even a local delivery service that will bring food from most of the local restaurants! There was plenty of parking for our rental car, and the courtyard is walled and gated. If we ever find ourselves back in Bonaire, we won't hesitate to book a room at Sonrisa!

We found Sonrisa to be a nice place. The manager (who checked us in and cooked breakfast) was very approachable and had some good discussion. Our room was of a good size, clean and comfortable; however, there was no soap/shampoo for the bathroom and the air conditioning was moody. Also, we experienced some noise from the car service station next door in the early morning. Breakfast was taken under a substantial pergola alongside the pool. The hotel is located about 10 minute walk from the town where you can find shops, bars and restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay at Sonrisa. It is located conveniently - minutes from both the airport and downtown. While most of the island can be covered easily with rental car, this is one of the few locations you can get by without one (there is parking if you do rent). We had a nice clean room and the staff were great. We met the owner and had great experiences with everyone else. We woke up every morning to complimentary breakfast (which was excellent) and made in front of us.

The saltwater pool was very refreshing and had enough area for the guests, we never felt crowded. We were able to walk to every restaurant we wanted to try and made some great friends at the resort. We went scuba diving with nearby/affiliated buddy dive, who drop off tanks daily if you choose to rent a car and dive independently.

Will return for another trip!

What a great find! We had a wonderful time during our stay over New Years. From a warm welcome to our lovely accommodations (huge 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen/living room) plus outdoor seating. I can't rave enough about this place. It is a short walk to town which means all the great restaurants are at your finger tips. The staff went above and beyond with recommendations on places to eat, what to see on the island, finding us a rental car plus dinner reservations! We aren't divers or windsurfers so being close to town was perfect for walking along the waterfront to shopping or eating. It is a very safe location with a lovely pool area and breakfasts were most enjoyable. We loved the conversation at breakfast learning more about the island. I look forward to our next trip to Bonaire and would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Request a room overlooking the pool area.

We spent a week at the Sonrisa on our dive trip. We had a fabulous time and would stay there again in a minute. It is easy walking distance to downtown and there are several supermarkets close as well. They were there waiting for us when we checked in and the personal breakfast in the morning is outstanding. The three times we used the pool we were the only ones in there which was great. We only saw a few other couples during our time and no children which was great! The air conditioning in the room was fantastic and the wifi worked well. There was an issue with the electricity one night due to some storms, however Victor was there to fix it immediately. For the price, you can't beat this hotel. We are hoping to return soon!
