We have been to Bonaire many times, and this was our second stay at Bellafonte, and will never stay anywhere else when we come back. We are experienced divers and have been all over the Caribbean and will tell you that this is the nicest resort we have ever stayed in. It is right on the water and especially convenient... More

Everyone on staff was extremely friendly and always available to help! We were upgraded because it was our honeymoon, and there was chocolates,flowers, and champagne ready for us upon arrival. The best part of our suite was the kitchen (which we used often) and the gorgeous terrace porch. We probably spent more time on the porch overlooking the sea than... More

There are not many places to stay in Bonaire. This place is fabulous. The king and queen of Holland stayed here a fews weeks ago. It's a little over a mile from town so you need a car. it's very close to the airport but we didn't have any noise from the planes. The rooms are beautiful. We woke up... More

The property is amazing and very upscale. In fact apparently the Dutch royals stayed here just prior to this trip. Accommodations and staff could not be any more helpful and friendly. Not to diminish the property, but the absolute best thing was the help from the travel professional from Caribbean Wyndance (AKA Caribbean Wind and Sun). Ann's AMAZING scrambling with... More

We spent our family holidays in this wonderful location. The new management is making a big difference and the units have undergone new refurbishment. The staff is kind and helpful, the view is astonishing. We really love this place and enjoy coming back.

We have now been to this hotel twice in the past two years. Our experience each time – with the room, the property, the ocean front, and the staff (from Sheila and Rebecca to the cleaning staff) – has been, well… quite nearly perfect. The first time we were by ourselves. The second time we returned with friends. They had... More

Loved staying here for our second trip to Bonaire. This is not really a hotel. It is apartments with great concierge service. The apartments are beautiful and well appointed. Efficiencies have no ocean view. Junior suites have great views but are quite small. For true luxury the senior suite or larger is needed. The setting is quiet and lovely. It... More

Nice place to stay in Bonaire. It is quiet, the appartments are big, the sea is nice. Service friendly and efficient, very helpful. The airport is not far away, but it is not a problem. There are only a few planes and the landings are even interesting to watch ! Rent a car, it is a must ...

Bellafonte is the place to stay in Bonaire. The units are spacious, impeccably clean, well stocked and beautifully furnished with a homey feel to them! The panoramic view from the apartment onto the turquoise waters of the ocean and Bellafonte's beautiful pier were incredible! But what makes this place to special is definitely its staff and management. They deeply care... More

For my first visit to Bonaire - could not have chosen a better place than Bellafonte. Not only is the staff TOP notch, but the accommodations are fantastic. Had a great ocean view with elevator and stair access and the backside of the hotel has a small pier for scuba diving or snorkeling if you so choose. The manager always... More
