Bruce Bowker's Carib Inn
Bruce Bowker's Carib Inn is a resort
dedicated to the needs and requirements of travelers who want a diving vacation. By
focusing on diving, specialized personnel maintain quality throughout the resort. Although
diving is featured at the Carib Inn, many guests come just to relax and enjoy Bonaire.
All employees in the dive shop are PADI certified instructors. This gives every
customer the best possible commitment to professional instruction, advice in equipment
purchases and any diving topic. The Carib Inn offers exceptionally good prices on all
equipment sales but does not compromise on quality. A large selection is available from
nationally known brands.
Carib Inn also has the highest return guest percentage on Bonaire and one of the best in
the Caribbean with some month's being 100%. Also the average occupancy on a yearly basis
is well over 90%. This is achieved, not only through an honest value for dollar pricing of
its rooms and diving, but also excellent service through personal attention to all of its
Bruce Bowker, the owner and resident manager of the Carib Inn, has always dedicated its
entire program to the guests and what they want and need. Bruce has always kept an honest
advertising campaign. "I never advertise more than I can offer. I prefer to advertise
less than we have so people are pleased when they see what they get." With such a
high return, the Carib Inn guests feel at home with their friends from last year.
The Carib Inn has only nine rooms with no plans for expansion. Bruce has said that
bigger is not always better. Its current size is easily managed and easily maintained.
This creates a unique niche in the resort business on Bonaire for the vacationer who wants
a small dedicated resort. The Carib Inn's guest list is made up of people who desire
exactly what the Carib Inn offers.
Generally the dive resort business has a high turnover of workers. Most of the Carib
Inn staff have been with the operation for over 6 years. From the maids who clean the
rooms to the instructors on the boats, guests come back to the same staff year after year.
This is another reason why they feel at home.
