Couldn't recommend more highly if you want a relaxed place to stay in a beautiful location. Don't come here if you want a resort with all the amenities. Rooms are big and nice. No pool but who needs one with the jetty providing easy access to crystal clear water and great snorkeling. Staff are wonderful!!! Advice: You will need to... More

This is a small hotel that is conveniently located just across from the airport and a 5 minute drive to town. It's central location is a great base for exploring all sides of the island. The rooms are spacious, immaculate, well appointed, and nicely furnished. There's a shared locker for dive equipment, a fresh water tub, and an outdoor shower.... More

My Partner and I stayed at the Bellafonte Hotel for two dreamy weeks. Every member of their staff from the lovely women who cleaned our suite to Yuri the manager did everything in their power to make us comfortable. I have to make a special note of Sheila, who went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate us.... More

We stayed in unit number 102 for a fabulous week in Bonaire. The condo was a great location on the first level, private patio, close to dock, pool, outdoor showers and lounge chairs. The Bellafonte isn't large so there aren't lots of people mingling around; a family feel and employees friendly and helpful and will make reservations for you. Unit... More

This was our annual windsurfing trip to Bonaire and after staying in budget accommodations for the last 25 years we decided that this time we would treat ourselves and stay at Bellafonte. Friends had stayed there over the years and always raved about the place. We were not disappointed. When we arrived we were advised that due to a problem... More

Absolutely terrific place made even better by the utterly top notch staff. Bellafonte is the only place I ever stay on my annual 2-3 week windsurfing trips to Bonaire, and I have stayed there about a dozen times now. Under normal circumstances, you can count on having a perfectly wonderful, relaxing stay at Bellafonte, and for me it is without... More

My wife, four year old son and visited Bonaire in January. As usual the snorkeling, diving and restaurants were excellent. We used to stay at the Divi but with the problems they have been having the past few years we looked for a new place to stay. Pros: The Bellafonte is a very nice property.
