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

We had the pleasure of recently staying at Bellafonte during our trip to Bonaire. In this review I am going give details about our hotel stay at the Bellafonte and other details that may help travelers heading to Bonaire or at least considering a trip! The Island: Bonaire is dry, and fairly desolate. Some have been surprised that the island... More

We spent a week in the Penthouse and loved it! It was super relaxing. We are a family of (4) - 2 adults and (2) children ages 10 and 11. We loved the space, we hired chef Danny to cook and he was a recommendation of the hotel. He was super talented and a very nice professional gentleman. Irna, Cindy,... More

I can't say enough about how relaxing, luxurious, and enjoyable our week at the Bellafonte was. We booked a junior suite, but got upgraded to a nice corner senior suite (#205) upon arrival. It was spacious and very comfortable. We spent a lot of time out on our balcony enjoying the beautiful view of the ocean. The kitchen was also... More

This place is simply super! Perfect location, very clean, kitchen fully equipped, and snorkeling just in front of the hotel. We were nicely surprised with how large our unit was. Very comfortable with super view of the ocean. There were no mosquitoes (just in case you heard about other places having a problem.) All people working there were very nice... More

We spent one night here during a side trip to Bonaire from Aruba. We stayed in a studio (305B), and got a reasonable rate via Booking.com. The property is located right down the road from the airport, so it is easy to get there. There are beautiful views, but our unit's balcony didn't have one. This was fully disclosed on... More
