It was not the first time on the island of Bonaire for me, my husband and our kids but it was the first staying at Bellafonte. We decided to book Bellafonte because it is in the perfect position for diving, windsurfing and Kitesurfing and we had a great experience with the nice and professional Staff that helped us booking diving,...

This hotel is more like home away from home. The staff was professional and service oriented. All you need to do is ask, and you shall receive. The front desk will book dinner reservations for you, call you a taxi, and help you find the perfect dive center. We used VIPdiving. They were excellent. There is a safe place to... More

This is by far the best place to stay on Bonaire. We are coming every 6 months for over 12 years and can't think of anything else. Rooms are well maintained, outside settings are just gorgeous, everything is scuba divers friendly and the stuff is simply amazing.

My husband and I stayed in a senior suite for one week in January. The layout was fantastic - a huge living area with sofas at one end with doors opening onto the balcony, and a dining area and kitchen area ( fantastic fridge freezer) at the other end. Leading off from this was a bedroom, again with doors onto... 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
