I was at Bellafonte during Christmas holidays. And we had a great holiday! The Staff was very helpful, gentle and smiling, the apartment had all the Services and amenities that you can expect from a luxury hotel, high Speed wi-fi too (that was a big surprise!). The hotel building is amazing, the dock on the light Blue water is something... More

We stayed in a senior suite and loved it. Great staff who is there around the clock to help you with anything and everything, from lost luggage to places to explore or booking activities. They make your trip easy and are there if anything goes wrong. Highly recommend!

We stayed here for 5 nights Dec 25-30, 2014 and our experience was excellent!! Staff went above and beyond even waiting for our late flight on Christmas night at 11 pm. Rebecca, Sheila and Sara were really accommodating. We got the senior suite and adjoining studio and basically it was a 2 BR condo with a kitchen. Loved being on... More

Was hesitating betwee 3 and 4 stars. What I liked: staff were lovely and very helpful (Rebecca, Sheila, Sarah). Place is clean and has a nice set up. Location very conveniant (tho you need car/bike/scooter). Bed was super comfy. We weren given snorkel gear to borrow on check in, which was nice. Much appreciated was the late check out, which...

I've been going to Bonaire for 10 years - scuba diver. This Christmas holiday we stayed at Bellafonte. Even before we arrived we were pampered with assistance from the staff, especially Rebecca, who quickly answered questions and assisted in making arrangements for rental cars, dive boats, and nitrox tanks. The trip was excellent, the room was fabulous, and I can't... More

Our second trip to Bonaire and first to the Bellafonte. The best part of Bellafonte was the staff. Sarah, Sheila, and Rebecca were all great. When we checked in on a Saturday afternoon, we noticed the A/C in our bedroom of the senior suite was not blowing cold air. We notified the staff and the next day (Sunday) they had... More

First and most importantly, the Bellafonte was absolutely fabulous. The service beats some of the most expensive resorts that we have ever stayed. Many, many thanks to Sarah, Sheila and Rebecca who were there from several months ahead of our visit to giving tips as we were leaving. This was our first trip to Bonaire and my wife and I... More

If you travel to Bonaire you need to realize that probably 95% of the people who go there go for diving or other water sports. Everything revolves around diving and water sports. As other reviewers have stated, the Belafonte is 5 minutes from the airport and 10-15 minutes from downtown. We had a third floor, two bedroom suite with a... More
