I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone. Great service, hospitality was off the chart. A real slice of paradise! A very friendly environment, like being at home. Rooms and grounds were very clean. I can't say enough about the staff and their willingness to please us during our stay. GREAT HOTEL!!!

Great small hotel. Emailed ahead of time to ask questions. Viktor (manager) was awesome. Offered to pick us up at airport. Upgraded our room for no additional cost. Rooms were perfect. Great breakfast cooked by staff each morning. Viktor was very accomodating. Room service each day. Pool was awesome for a cool dip after a long hot day and beautiful... More

Stayed here at a One Bedroom Apartment in October 2014. It's a small hotel with a nice pool and very quiet location. The living area is spacious, has a good kitchen facility with all utensils at hand. And a nice balcony. Bedroom also spacious, bed a little hard, but ok. Bathroom has a shower. AC works good and silently. Not... More

The hotel was beautifully laid out with a lovely courtyard and pool, our room was just steps away from the pool and it had a nice porch that we spent the evening on. The only thing we could not figure out was the air conditioning, which we could not turn off when we left the room. Otherwise we had a... More

Loved Sonrisa! Easy going, clean, great A/C, nice privacy, but easy to meet others if you want to, give discounts to windsurfing at The Windsurf Place or for SCUBA with VIP Diving. We took advantage of both of these discounts and both outfits were well run and excellent. The breakfast was made to order and Karoline did a great job... More

Probably about our 8th or 9th time staying at Sonrisa and we will return again. The rooms and furnishings are modern and comfortable, the beds are very sleepable, the grounds are well maintained (by Roger, the owner/gardener) and the pool area is delightful to relax in and around after a day of windsurfing or snorkeling. On top of that, Viktor... More

As a repeat customer of The Sonrisa Boutique Hotel, I must say that it is one of the best value for the money.

We are talking about a simple hotel, no luxury and that possibly needs some improvements, but the location is very good, it does cover all the basics that someone into diving needs and it has Viktor the manager that is always happy to help and makes the bests breakfasts which is a big plus! I would definitely stay here again... More

The Sonrisa is located very near downtown Kralendijk and in walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. We had a relaxed stay at the Sonrisa for 3 nights and were treated with great breakfast every morning. If you plan to go for dives or other activities during the day it is a real good hotel to stay.
