"Perfect accommodations in Bonaire"
Sonrisa certainly lived up to its reputation of being the #1 hotel in town. This small, safe, hotel is a beauty & within a short walking distance of grocery stores, downtown & small beach areas for diving or snorkeling. Jackie, the owner, and her staff are delightful, friendly, and very helpful. Jackie warmly welcomed guests, shared useful information about the island and assisted in making arrangements. Our basic style room was great & all we needed - clean, tastefully decorated and quite spacious. The mature garden & saline pool area is exquisite. In the garden you will certainly see the 2 pairs of beautiful, camera shy, green parrots who reside under the roof tiles. Each morning in the palapa coffee & a light fresh breakfast is offered (a bun with meat, yogurt, fruit, sweets, and granola). Several times, we took advantage of the guest BBQ & bought salads, meat, and vegetables to enjoy “dinner in” a few times. Guests in the basic room who want to BBQ should bring plastic plates, knives, forks, spoons and sml. paring knife.
We stayed at Sonrisa from March 19-29. 2013 & loved it. Bottom line, we highly recommend this wonderful, small conveniently located European/Caribbean style Boutique. Thank you Jackie and Nim for making our much needed vacation very special!
