Very quiet and well run resort. Small but not too small, we booked this resort at short notice. Stayed in a one bedroom suite deluxe overlooking the pool and dock.

The dive shop is part of the Buddy Dive Resort and is well equipped. There is a storage locker available and air/nitrox are available 24 hours for those folks that want to go for the diving freedom Bonaire is known for.

Our suite was quite spacious with a good kitchen to prepare some of the meals, especially breakfast. Large deck to enjoy the sunset.

The house reef is “Sara’s Smile” and is available to guests at the resort only. However, access to Buddy Dive is part of the package for diving there too. Entry/exit to the house reef is via the dive dock and stairs. There is a separate dock with stairs for snorkellers. An installed line running from the snorkel dock down to a depth of 45 feet leads to the reef.

Located in the Belnam district the resort is about three kilometres to the Salt Pier diving site. Short drive to supermarkets and back into the main part of town.

We were given instructions on how to find two seahorses just a bit off of the main line and saw them on every dive we did at the house reef.

Melissa and her staff are very accommodating and respond quickly to queries and the occasional minor problem that may crop up.

Rooms are serviced every second day and towels for the pool/beach can be exchange anytime reception is open.

We tend to shy away from the larger resorts. Services at Belmar are on par with any of the larger resorts, but it is certainly less busy.

We were supposed to have the penthouse but were downgraded to the suite just below it. They were doing some remodeling. I can't see how the penthouse was any better than ours. It was huge! 2 stories with the master on the first floor and 2 bedrooms and a bath on the second floor. Huge sliding glass doors opened to a huge balcony. We are scuba divers and there was so much room to hang our stuff after diving. The island's breeze made it all dry really quickly. There was a full kitchen which we made use of a lot (food is expensive in Bonaire!). The beds were comfy and the bedrooms were dark.
The dive shop was great. They are part of buddy divers. They thoroughly oriented us to shore diving. Then they answered the 500 questions we had over the week. We used some rental equipment and it was all in excellent shape.
The property is in a great area. There is a pier that allows for easy in and out access for snorkeling or diving. There are huge rinse buckets available.
There is a huge pool that has happy hour every day from about 4-5 pm. The property is very clean and the people are very friendly. We would definitely go back!!

We have been to Bonaire 7 times, primarily for the easy diving. We have stayed at 3 different resorts. The best , by far. is Belmar Apts. Small, family feeling resort. Clean, best friendly staff, and new trucks to drive around the island. They now have excellent grocery stores for those of us who dont want to spent $100 each night on dinner. We grilled on the resorts grill 7 nights out of 10.The lack of tourists has been good for the reefs. Belmar is spending money to keep their resort fresh and inviting. We had a very relaxing and pleasant vacation again with them. It took a bit of doing to get there, American Airlines canceled our flights, again, a week before departure, but going through Curacio was worth the added expense.

We just returned from a week at Belmar Apts with Dive Buddy shop on-site. It was our first time on Bonair.
Absolutely nothing but superlatives. Our group of 6 included divers, snorklers, and a fly fisherman. Everyone agreed that every aspect was beyond our high expectations. The 3BR apt was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the water and a perfect view of magnificent sunsets. Before the visit, the front office (Iris) and dive staff (Flavia) communicated promptly and clearly by email or phone. Was fascinating and reassuring how many of the other guests at Belmar were return/regular visitors -- and everyone shared info on dive sites. The location is excellent, away from the congestion, quiet, and convenient to Southern dive sites (salt pier, angel city). Our trucks and dive equipment were great, and the ability to exchange tanks on the North (Buddy Dive resort) or South (Belmar) was convenient. Tolo and Karpata our favorite dives on North side. Strong recommendation for the valet boat dive (thanks Douweh) to Klein for divers and snorklers. Nothing but praise for the entire experience. The dive staff were available for recommendations or equiptment adjustments, and the front office was always there for logistical (COVID testing) help, transportation support, restaurant recs/reservations, and Nespresso capsules. We'll be back to Bonaire, and we won't look for another place to stay.

My wife, son and I had an enjoyable week's stay at BOA. For our first time on the island, this property was able to provide us with everything that we needed for diving, relaxing and exploring the island.
The resort staff was very pleasant and helpful. From reservations, to airport shuttles, to check in, to housekeeping, to car rental and food suggestions, everything was handled well.
Having the dive staff and shop integrated into the resort operations helped to make the stay much more enjoyable. The dive staff couldn't have been more pleasant and
helpful, and our night dive at the resort with Flavia was a special treat.
Our 3BR apt. on the second floor was very nice, though carrying luggage up the spiral staircase was a little challenging. The best part of the accommodation was the large patio with the view of the water. Whether having coffee in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon, or watching the lights of the city come on in the evening, it was a great spot to be.
The resort was intimate, clean and well manicured with nice accessibility to the water and a pleasant pool and lounging area. The only inconvenience of the resort, when having a rental vehicle, is the lack of parking. Some nights required street parking a distance away.
The only thing we would've appreciated would have been having food options within walking distance. The apartment is well appointed for eating in, but we enjoy trying different restaurants while traveling.
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at the resort and would return.

There's only one airconditioner in the apartment: the bedroom. That means that in the living room it was always too warm, with a ceiling fan just circling hot air. It's only cleaned 3 times a week, meaning that garbage will sit stinking in the bin because it's so hot. The so-called private terrace wasn't really that, it was open and directly located next to a footpath with much traffic. Thus every time I sat there for let's say an hour reading a book and smoking a cigarette, I had the "pleasure" of at least 15 people walking by and gawping at me. The distance to the village was especially at night in the dark quite far, pavement isn't everywhere available, and potholes in the streets are common.

We stayed at the Belmar Oceanfront Apartments in July. Loved every minute of it. First off, it is a small property with friendly, kind, and helpful staff that go above and beyond to take care of you!! Stephanie, Hilliele, Jardee and Iris were all wonderful!
Our one bedroom apartment was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy cooking at home. The views of the ocean are spectacular. The pool was great and the area quiet and peaceful.

We loved having Buddy Dive right on the property. We did valet boat dives every day. Flavia, Douwe, Jason and Batista were wonderful dive guides. They genuinely cared about our experience and made the diving just perfect. Valet Boat Diving is wonderful.....no work on your part, just show up and everyday your gear is set up and ready for you! They even rinsed and stored our gear everyday.
Although many people prefer shore diving in Bonaire, I highly recommend boat diving as there are so many beautiful reefs off of Klein Bonaire.

The location of the resort is perfect, close to the airport, grocery store and restaurants. You will need a car/truck to get around the island, but it is so easy to navigate.

We can't wait to return to Belmar and see the wonderful staff again!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!!!

We have been coming to this sight for more than 20 years. We love the property and the people we meet staying there. This year there was lots more noise. And our unit was awful. The refrigerator barely kept things cold. The freezer and ice maker did not work. While the staff made an effort to help nothing was fixed. The Fan in master bedroom was wired to the lights so you couldn't leave the fan on at night unless you slept with the lights on. The kitchen was poorly equipped. Much of the apartment needed work. Ask a lot of questions about the apartment you are getting before you arrive.

Belmar Oceanfront apartments is fantastic. This was our first time in Bonaire and we can't believe our good luck of choosing Belmar among so many. Great condo's that are acomfortable home away from home accommodation. The dive shop is superb offering a variety of padi courses and opportunities for guided shore diving and VIP Boat diving. Their guides are super professional and knowledgeable and ready to support us in every way possible. We took both our Reactivate Padi course and the Nitrox course and so glad we chose here to do that. We also had a vehicle with our package and that was so awesome. Gave us the freedom to explore the island, enjoy some shore diving and try a variety of excellent restaurants in the area. The pool is awesome and love the set up they have for divers. Really enjoyed the reef off their pier as well.

In summary this is a top notch place to stay while vacationing in Bonaire.

The hotel is beautiful but DO NOT rent a truck from here - it’s a SCAM!! On checkin they walked around the truck and noted scratches and dents from prior renters. . The woman checking in couldn’t get their iPad to work and eventually said “well, I’ve got the pictures”. We got FULL insurance but they charged a $565 deposit.

Upon checkout, they identified a dent in the front fender and claimed it was ours. They said they have no prior record and thus would keep the whole deposit!!!! This is a dent in the plastic fender at the front of a beat up truck. C’mon. I was willing to accept some liability (even though I’m sure it was there to begin with) but at best they’re going to bang out the dent and call it a day. That’s not $500+ worth of work or value.

Since they don’t repair the trucks, this is clearly a revenue generating scam. I’ve asked for pictures when the truck is repaired plus evidence that they lost revenue from not being able to rent the truck while being repaired. I’m doubtful we’ll get anything.

Bonaire has a combination generator / de-salination set up that produces reliable 110 voltage. Your laptops, tablets, and camera chargers will work fine. There are plenty of outlets located throughout the apartments.
