Kralendijk hotels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and for those who want to stay at Bonaire's original beach resort, the recently revamped Divi Flamingo figures among the top lodging options. The rates at this iconic Bonaire resort are more than reasonable, and you might win enough money to pay for your comfortable room at the popular onsite casino. For travelers who are looking for a more upscale resort experience, there are some other beach hotels near town that are worth considering. There are also some cheap hotels in Kralendijk for those who want to save their money for other things. Vacation rentals and villas round out the choices for lodging in Kralendijk, and since the area in and around town is home to the bulk of Bonaire's accommodations, it's where many tourists look to base themselves.
Harbour Village Beach Club
For travelers who want to enjoy luxurious Kralendijk accommodations, the Harbour Village Beach Club (pictured) is the hotel of choice. In fact, this hotel arguably tops the list of Bonaire luxury hotels. As is true of the Bonaire hotels in general, the Harbour Village Beach Club isn't a sprawling lodging complex. There are only 30 guest units to choose from. These guest units are tastefully decorated and come in the form of deluxe rooms, enticing beachfront suites, and alluring premier suites that boast full kitchens. Standard amenities that can be found in all of the guest units include air conditioning, ceiling fans, cable TV, iPod docking stations, in-room safes, luxury bedding, and complimentary bath products. Coffee makers and hair dryers are also provided, as are cozy robes. Outside the rooms and suites, guests will have an array of facilities to take advantage of, and the strip of private beach beckons with its soft, white sand. Among the facility highlights are an excellent restaurant, a pair of bars to satisfy nightlife enthusiasts, a spa, a dive center, a handful of tennis courts, a marina, and an outdoor pool. The Harbour Village Beach Club can be found north of Kralendijk, and the walk into town takes about twenty minutes.
Travelers who are interested in the upscale Kralendijk hotels can save some money by passing on the Harbour Village Beach Club and staying at the Sonrisa Hotel instead. This small hotel offers both rooms and apartment-style units, all of which are clean and relatively well equipped. WiFi internet access, air conditioning, cable TV, a safe for valuables, a mini fridge, and coffee and tea facilities figure among the standard amenities in all of the guest units. The apartments offer added space, and they are also equipped with kitchen facilities. Both the rooms and suites have modern décor. The overall facilities include an attractive outdoor swimming pool and a pool patio area with lounge chairs. As is true of many Bonaire hotels, the Sonrisa Hotel can help guests arrange diving excursions to sites such as the Bari Reef. Island tours can also be booked at the hotel, and if you feel like staying closer to town, it's just a short walk to a good public beach.
Sand Dollar Condominium Resort
If you are interested in a vacation rental, but you also want to enjoy the hotel experience, then the Sand Dollar Condominium Resort might be your ideal lodging in Kralendijk. All of the privately owned condos at the Sand Dollar offer plenty of space, and they also feature balconies with ocean views. The full kitchens are another amenity that guests can take advantage of, and the cable TV can keep you entertained when you're not enjoying the resort's general facilities. While the Sand Dollar Condo Resort doesn't sit on a sandy beach, it enjoys an oceanfront location. Guests at the Sand Dollar can also swim in the hotel's small outdoor pool, and the pool bar is open daily. Other facilities that help to make the Sand Dollar Condo Resort one of the best Kralendijk hotels are the bar and grill, the day spa, and the convenient mini-mart. Bonaire visitors searching for a good, three-star dive resort should find the Sand Dollar to be a good fit when it comes to lodging in Kralendijk. The dive packages that the hotel offers can help you maximize your time on the island, especially if you're just enjoying a quick visit before heading back to Curacao or one of the other Caribbean islands close by.
There aren't a ton of cheap hotels in Kralendijk, but that doesn't mean that budget-minded visitors will be out of luck. Found in the center of town, the Hotel Rochaline offers seventeen rooms that are very well priced. While they might be relatively simple compared to the rooms at some of the other Kralendijk hotels, the rooms at the Hotel Rochaline nonetheless have good amenities. A private bathroom is standard, and other amenities that guests can expect to enjoy include cable TV, air conditioning, a telephone, and a balcony or patio. When you're not relaxing in your room at the Hotel Rochaline, you can visit the onsite restaurant. You can also book a scuba diving excursion at the hotel's dive operation. You might be able to find cheap hotels in Kralendijk that offer lower rates than the Hotel Rochaline, but it's hard to beat the overall value.
