This is one of my favorite hotels of all time. The rooms are nice, but nothing fancy. There is a small kitchen with utensils available. The view from the dock is what takes the cake. I've never seen anything like it. You can hang out of the dock, there is a ladder that takes you right down into the ocean... More

We stayed here the first two nights of our nine day trip, having already purchased a time share from a friend for the rest of our dive trip. My wife and I enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel as well as friendly staff. Great snorkeling rite off the deck. At the end of our trip I realized for... More

The diving and snorkeling from the beach are amazing!! The hotel was nice and the staff were incredible, taking care of our every need. The snorkeling right of the hotel deck is great and was a very nice plus. If you come to Bonaire, you need to rent a car. The roads are decent and the traffic is minimal. There... More

The staff at Bellafonte was so accommodating from the very beginning. Cindy, the person we typically corresponded with, was always prompt to reply to any question we had throughout the process. She made the arrangements for our car AND for our diving, with we did with VIP. We stayed in a junior suite which had a living room, balcony, and... More

This was the perfect place to stay!! Amazing views all day long overlooking the dock which at the end and about 30'+ down has its own treasure of a reef. Lockers to store gear next to the rinse tanks and tanks delivered daily... It's too easy!! The staff are all amazing and made every effort to get to know us... More

This is a nice, friendly place on a great island. The ocean-front location is great. The room I had was large, well airconditioned. And the wifi connection great throughout. The staff are super-friendly, making an effort to connect with all guests on a personal level, looking for ways to help, offer advice etc. The one downside is that it fails... More

Using Trip Advisor as our guide, we picked the Bellafonte. We had never been to Bonaire and so relied on the good reviews of this resort. We were not disappointed for one second. Luxurious, spacious as well as being greeted outside as we pulled up. We rented the Senior Suite with our friends renting the Junior Suite next door so... More

It just doesn't get it better than Bellafonte. They took care of the truck reservations and they work with VIP divers who have tank storage at the resort. The island was not what I expected in that it is not tropical but is actually like the desert with lots of rocks, dirt, and cactus. The grounds of the resort were... More
