Bellafonte was the perfect place for our stay. The staff were amazing, particularly front office manager Sheila. We hadn't arranged any of our plans in advance and only had a short 4 night stay to fit everything in but within an hour of arriving Sheila had arrange a car hire to be brought to us, booked a snorkelling trip to...

We stayed in studio 101b in May for one night at the end of our visit to Bonaire. When we checked in, we were shown to the studio and shown how to use the safe. We were also given a little tour of the grounds. Pros: The studio had a very comfortable king sized bed and pillows and we slept... More

Flying in on the right side of the plane my wife recognized the hotel from the photos. You almost fly right over the hotel. It is literally less than five minutes from the airport. Don't worry about the noise there are not many flights in and out but it was exciting watching the KLM 747 so close. The staff greeted... More

Just had my second visit to Bellafonte. It was remarkable as usual. Sara, the manager , and her great team, Rebecca, Sheila, Caprice and Dilia were fantastic. Michael, security, was also great, even at 4:30 am before my early flight. They will help you with anything you need...even removing the soft top off your jeep. I can't say enough about... More

This is a beautiful, Mediterranean-feeling resort , we stayed several days in one of the junior suites and one night in a senior suite. The junior suite was nice with a small kitchen with about all you need for breakfast and just right for two, with air-conditioning in the bedroom only--fairly common on Bonaire, but if you opened up the...

The Bellafonte is a great small “hotel” comprised of 22 condos. We stayed in a two-bedroom unit on the 3rd floor. The unit was very nice with an extraordinary view (note photo). While the property was excellent, the staff is what truly sets the place apart from other condominium rentals. The staff was very courteous and friendly … they were... More

The staff here is wonderful. This is truly what sets this place a part from the rest. Bonaire is truly about the water so be prepared to snorkel or dive. The Bellafonte was wonderful. This is THE place to stay on the island if you ask me. In tems of beaches, there are some gems.....rent a truck and check them... More

The place is great. All the units are differently decorated as they are privately owned. Ours was ample, simply and tastefully done. All have kitchens (they vary in size according to size of room). The staff was very attentive and informative. They offered good recommendations of activities and places to go in the island. The pier into the water is... More

Stayed for a week for business! As Bonaire is a very small diver's island everything is nearby! However, I do recommend renting a car. Do this prior to arrival since the chance fairly big all cars are rented out! The Bellafonte is a fully serviced apart hotel complex in which each apartment is uniquely furnished. I recommend the grand room... More
