My wife and I chose this location based on reviews in TripAdvisor. This hotel has great ratings and deservedly so. Sitting right on the beach, one can snorkel or dive right from the beach if you want to. Just about 10 meters off the property and you have a dive site that looks like you went out in a boat....

We were so pleased with this condo hotel that words won't do it justice. It felt like a true paradise. You could live comfortably for quite some time in these fully-furnished, large, clean apartments. The kitchens have modern appliances and the balcony of our unit overlooked the the most clear, turquoise ocean you'll ever see. The hotel also threw in... More

We were very surprised how large the living area was in our apartment. Not sure why they call it a hotel because they are fully furnished condos with full-size side by side fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser, full size stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, dishes and pots and pans. We didn't eat in much because the restaurants are plentiful... More

We just returned from a week long diving trip to Bonaire, staying at the Bellafonte Chateau de la Mer. This hotel is wonderful, small and quiet, with a lovely little dock/sun deck jutting out into the incredible turquoise waters of the island. The Bellafonte sits right on the water, looking west, and the sunsets are special. We spent much of... More

What an incredible place! The spacious suite was immaculate and decorated with style. The private balcony gave us the perfect place to watch the sun set over the ocean with a bottle of wine. I am a timid snorkeler and I was able to just walk down the stairs and see fish immediately, even under the dock! Yuri was knowledgeable... More

We had 10 days in a senior suite in floor 2. It was very spacious and had a large balcony overlooking the pier and the sea. We loved our stay here and loved the feel of the island the moment we stepped out of the plane. It is close to the airport but the flights do not interfere at all.... More

I can not say enough about this hotel. First, the staff, especially Yuri, were amazing. The room (205) overlooking the ocean, was perfect, roomy, and beautiful. We sat on a 25 ft balcony and watched the sun set each night. It is located minutes from the airport but with so few flights in and out each day, we were not... More

The Bellafonte is a building individually owned condos run as a hotel (ie maid and concierge services) located in the Belem district on the water with a wide long dock for relaxation and water entry.
